    I'm pleased to report the release of DaVinci Resolve 12.5.1.
    This update is for both the free version and paid Studio version of DaVinci Resolve.
    https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/sup...lve-and-fusion

    It adds ProRes decoding on Windows and no longer requires QuickTime 7 for Windows. So Windows users can now run Resolve without installing QuickTime. Trimming and multicam performance is also improved as DaVinci Resolve 12.5.1 now uses its own native 64-bit code to read and write .mov files. In addition, Mac OS X, Windows and Linux users all get new ResolveFX plug-ins with improved GPU acceleration. This update also adds support for Sony X-OCN, DNxHR 444 alpha channels, AVCHD .mts clips and more.

    DaVinci Resolve Studio customers also get improved 3D tools, support for copying Dolby Vision grades and more.

    There is a database upgrade required for this release so we recommend that you back up your database and any active projects before installing this update.

    Peter

    When are Windows users going to get ProRes encode, Peter? If Redcine can do it then surely Resolve can.

    Hiya, Luigi. I think I was a bit hasty. You can generate optimised media to ProRes. I'm optimising to ProRes 422HQ right now and it works really good. You can also optimise to 4444.
    However it doesn't look like you can output your final video in ProRes. :(

    I just tried and this feature
    •Added menu items to allow selection of clips based on Flag, Marker and Clip colors on the edit timeline
    does not work with titles. Would be useful to be able to select all titles easily. Maybe there is another way. FCPX has these really nice ways of selecting all kinds of things on the timeline, useful when you need to do changes to a lot of clips at one time.

    Literally had a delivery yesterday that needed a 4k H.264 and was really frustrated with how complicated it was.. This is awesome.
