DaVinci Resolve Studio 18.6.2 Released - Blackmagic Proxy Generator Lite Introduced

Blackmagic Design have announced the release of DaVinci Resolve Studio 18.6.1 and quickly after that, 18.6.2. The majority of changes resolve issues from previous versions. Let’s take a closer look!

Some days ago, Blackmagic Design released DaVinci Resolve Studio 18.6.1. This new version – 18.6.2 – is almost the same, it just addresses an issue when duplicating a timeline where parameters may not be set correctly.

What’s new in DaVinci Resolve 18.6.2

In this free update, the Davinci Resolve installer includes a standalone application, the Blackmagic Proxy Generator Lite, and the new DaVinci Resolve Monitoring app. Another change is proxy as the default mode for single and multi-user projects.

Below are the list of changes from Blackmagic Design’s site:

  • Systems now default to prefer proxy for single and multi-user projects.
  • Addressed a cloud sync issue with projects updated from 18.5.
  • Addressed delays when performing ripple edits on long timelines.
  • Addressed issue where editing or moving clips would stop playback.
  • Addressed issue showing retimed clips with handles on the color page.
  • Addressed issue navigating clips with show handles enabled.
  • Addressed issue with grabbing stills after deleting a gallery album.
  • Addressed issue importing suffixed multi-mono files from media storage.
  • Addressed waveform jump issue when performing multi-frame nudges.
  • Addressed issue navigating powergrades album in certain sort modes.
  • Improved in or out point behavior in the transcription window.
  • Dolby Vision 300 nit target display is now available.
  • Addressed issue with multiple timelines showing as current timeline.
  • Addressed a crash when using certain fonts on Text3D.
  • Addressed issue with grid depth occlusion in the USD viewer.
  • Addressed issue with disappearing key markers in the splines view.
  • Addressed issue with moving locked point selections in the splines view.
  • Addressed issue with polyline point scale and twist in the Edit viewer.
  • General performance and stability improvements.

As always, the free version has some limitations, such as project mastering and output to Ultra HD resolutions or lower, or supporting a less powerful use of processors. These features are fully available if you upgrade to DaVinci Resolve 18.6.2 Studio.

About Davinci Resolve updates

The company’s philosophy of continuously updating its software is always appreciated. Still, if you are a Davinci Resolve user like I am, maybe you have the feeling that a new update will not last long. The ongoing process of bug fixing brings back memories of earlier times with the Windows OS when you had to install service packs to get it to work correctly. On the other hand, if you look at a wide time frame, this philosophy makes Davinci Resolve one of the most powerful NLE apps on the market and an industry standard.

We also recommend backing up your project library before any updates. Here is an article with tips on what to do before updating. Sometimes, waiting a bit for some user feedback would be advisable.
