DaVinci Resolve 12.2


Blackmagic Design today announced a free DaVinci Resolve 12.2 update that adds support for the latest color science technologies, along with decoding of HEVC/H.265 QuickTime files on OS X, additional high dynamic range features and more. The DaVinci Resolve 12.2 update is available now for both DaVinci Resolve 12 and DaVinci Resolve 12 Studio customers, and can be downloaded from the Blackmagic Design website.


Since last month’s release of version 12.1, Blackmagic Design engineers have been working hard to continue adding features professional editors and colorists need, as well as support for the latest formats with expanded color spaces and wide dynamic range. With this DaVinci Resolve 12.2 update, Blackmagic Design continues to improve the software and extend its lead in color, dynamic range and image processing, putting DaVinci Resolve far ahead of other color correction software.


DaVinci Resolve 12.2 update adds support for the latest Blackmagic and third party cameras while also delivering significant improvements to DaVinci Resolve color management. Customers get new support for HDR Hybrid Log Gamma, conversion LUTs for Hybrid Log Gamma, ACES IDTs for Canon C300 Mk II clips, and updated ST 2084 HDR color science. That means colorists have even better tools for finishing high dynamic range projects that are going to be distributed to the latest theaters with the latest projection systems like IMAX Laser and Dolby Vision. This also lets customer prepare content that is ready for next generation HDR 4K televisions.


In addition, the DaVinci Resolve 12.2 update adds support for NewBlue Titler Pro titles using Media Composer AAF sequences, improves ProRes 4444 alpha channel support by defaulting to straight blend mode, retains Power Window™ opacity and invert settings when converting to Power Curve windows, and more.


“We continue to be amazed by the incredible response customers have had to DaVinci Resolve 12,” said Grant Petty, CEO, Blackmagic Design. “It’s quickly becoming the new editor of choice in Hollywood and is already used for color on virtually all major films, television shows and commercials! We are listening to professional editors and colorist and are working as hard, and fast, as possible to make sure it continues to be the world’s best editor and color correction software!”
