Just as Adobe introduced native versions of Photoshop for the Apple M1 Macs, BlackMagic too has released a new update for their DaVinci Resolve video editing tool that adds native support for the M1 Macs.
The new update released is DaVinci Resolve version 17.1. By bringing native support for the Apple M1 Macs, users should be able to see performance improvements across the app, as it no longer needs to use the Rosetta 2 translation layer. BlackMagic also announced support for H.265 4:2:2 hardware decode for Macs that are running Apple Silicon.
The complete changelog for DaVinci Resolve v17.1 is as follows:
- Support for Apple Silicon based Mac OS systems.
- H.265 4:2:2 hardware decode support on Apple Silicon.
- H.265 4:2:2 and 4:4:4 Intel decode support in DaVinci Resolve Studio.
- H.265 4:2:2 and 4:4:4 Intel encode support in DaVinci Resolve Studio.
- Support for GPU decoding of RED clips in OpenCL processing mode.
- Option to always perform copy and paste actions on selected color nodes.
- General performance and stability improvements.
