    Hello, we are pleased to report the release of DaVinci Resolve 14.1
    This is a no charge update for existing customers and the Studio and free version is available on the BMD support web site.

    Important Information regarding Database Management

    We strongly recommend that you backup your existing database (both DiskDB and PostgreSQL) before performing an upgrade.

    DaVinci Resolve Micro and Mini Panels
    Please note that DaVinci Micro and Mini panels will require a firmware update starting from 14.1.

    Wow! Long list of improvements. Installing 14.1 now to test the IPP2 support. Love how diligently BlackmagicDesign keeps improving Resolve and Fusion.

    Guys, just in case you were confused like I was.

    In "camera raw"

    choose "Rec 709" for "colorspace" and "bt1886" for "gamma curve" and then select your tone curve and highlight rolloffs. Then it works like it does in redcine-x in the "preferences" tab, "image pipeline" and " Ipp2 monitoring".

    and it supports monstro .r3d clips not sure about monstro footage because I don't have any.

    Does anyone know the highest resolution export setting possible with this version? We haven't been able to get davinci to export more than 4k.

    Well, the highlight extension algorithm appears to have made it, as well as the improved demosaic. But there's several issues.

    Resolve's IPP2 implementation is applying the output transform after raw development, but before any grading nodes, which is backwards from the proper order of operations. This also means that philmColor LUTs (and other LUTs intended for RWG/Log3G10 input) will not work as intended if used on any node. They must be loaded into the RMD and called upon by the checkbox in the raw tab.

    The LUT portion of IPP2 is nothing but an on/off checkbox. Swapping out this LUT in Resolve is impossible, you have to stick with whichever one is loaded into the RMD metadata. So to change out this LUT, you have to open the .r3d in REDCINE-X Pro and then change the LUT there and overwrite the RMD. Cycling through LUTs will be a pain in the ass. And like I said above, you can't use LUTs that assume a RWG input (philmColor) on any node because they will be post-output-transform.

    If you're set to Version 3 color science, you can still select all of the other RED color spaces and gammas, even though they don't look any different than Rec709 and clearly aren't actually functioning. You can also change the Contrast/Highlight Rolloff options when doing so and see results on screen. This is going to lead to misinformation and people are going to think they can use "IPP2" with their footage processed to DragonColor2/RedGamma4, I guarantee it.

    The Color Space Transform OFX plugin, when changing from RWG/Log3G10 material to Rec709, appears to be different than the official IPP2 transforms and is yielding a darker image.

    In Project Settings, setting the input/timeline color space to RWG/Log3G10 and then output color space to Rec709 yields the same darker image that the OFX plugin does. I thought this would be my way around the first problem listed here, but unfortunately the image doesn't match. Also, when the clip settings are set to RWG/Log3g10, the Highlight/Contrast controls don't function (which makes sense as there's no defined display format to tone map to), so even if the output transform was correct, I would have to forgo these features.

    So back to RWG/Log3g10 development and the RED provided LUTs, for me, it looks like.

    At least we got full Monstro support...
