Blackmagic dropped another DaVinci Resolve Studio version, bumping it to 16.2.5. As usual with a dot-dot update, the improvements are mostly unremarkable, unless you plan to buy an ATEM Mini Pro ISO (or are affected by one of the issues fixed).
Here are the patch notes from Blackmagic:
What’s new in DaVinci Resolve Studio/Free 16.2.5
- Support for importing ATEM Mini Pro ISO projects in DaVinci Resolve.
- Improved listing of numbered still frames in the media pool.
- Addressed flashing offline frame issues for some H.264 clips on Windows.
- Addressed an issue with relinking AAF clips in different folders.
- Addressed issues with syncing playhead in the sync bin and timeline.
- Multiple performance and stability improvements.
Both DaVinci Resolve Studio and the free version get the exact same update, which will make future owners of the – as of yet unreleased – ATEM Mini Pro ISO happy: It now supports importing projects generated by the great little switcher console.
The Pro ISO model can record up to 5 live streams (4 cameras 1 program feed) separately and generates a project that can now be opened in Resolve to adjust edits, change shots, remix audio, and add color correction.
As usual, it‘s a no-charge update for existing customers who can download this release from Blackmagic‘s support page.
Make sure you have a full backup of your projects and/or Resolve databases before you upgrade.
