    Resolve 16.2.2 introduces a new colorspace/gamma option named Rec.709-A which is compatible with how Apple frameworks handle Rec.709 Scene (1-1-1) tagged QuickTime files.

    If you have a clip stored with the 1-1-1 profile and are using Resolve Color Management, please tag the input clip in media pool with the new Rec.709-A option.

    If you are not using Resolve Color Management, you can set the timeline to Rec. 709-A.

    The Resolve viewer should then match the QuickTime Player output. Please make sure “Use Mac Viewer Color Profile” in Preferences is enabled.

    This new option can also be used for the output color space and will generate 1-1-1 tagged QuickTime files which should look the same when viewed in QuickTime Player. You can continue to use the 2.4 gamma as well, but it might not be compliant with some 3rd party apps which do not handle the 1-2-1 color profile tag.

    Additionally there is a new preference to automatically tag clips Rec.709 Scene clips added to the Media Pool as Rec.709-A. This option will set the input color space of Rec.709 1-1-1 tagged clips as Rec.709-A and will match the look on products such as QuickTime player.

    Wow! I just rendered a 22 min UHD HDR video yesterday on my iMacPro and it took almost 5 hrs using 16.2.1. looking forward to seeing how 16.2.2 changes that! (I hope it's one of the Macs that has H.265 acceleration.)

    Don't get your hopes up... iMac Pro has got old skool graphics. But I'm not sure... it might support some scenarios (8bit?). My gut feeling is that cards up to and including the Radeon VII won't do HW accelerated 10bit HEVC. Hope I'm wrong.

    My MacBook Pro 16" with the 5500 Radeon renders 6K braw footage in a UHD timeline to 10bit UHD HEVC at around 20fps. Complex grades will obviously render slower. It peaked at around 30fps.

    Mavic 2 Pro 10bit UHD HEVC footage rendered out to same format at around 45 fps on my MacBook Pro.

    The "new" W5700XT has got good support in the new Mac Pro (as would a vanilla PC 5700XT in a 2019 Mac Pro).

    My Mac Pro 5.1 on Mojave and a Vega Frontier edition won't accelerate.

    Good news: 4h41m render on track to render out in 46m elapsed. That's just about 2x real-time for 8k full premium debayer, with chroma noise reduction, full quality image scaling and a few interesting node trees on two of the three video tracks. Stoked!!

    Sounds good. What format are you rendering out to?

    Haha, awesome! You guys compensated for Apple's (incorrect) Rec.709 display via Quicktime by adding a special mode?

    Is it a viable workflow to just work in a 2.4 gamma timeline (with monitors and everything properly calibrated), except have an option to let Resolve export Rec.709 Scene (eg do the Quicktime compensation on export?) or does that make no sense?

    I'm finding I'm working more in Windows these days but have a MacBook Pro as a quite expensive "how the client is gonna see it if we're lucky and they don't just check it out on their iPhone" QC monitor. Hmm, now I have to see if iPhone / iPad displays with the same quirks as desktop Quicktime!

    Peter,


    I"m working with Aces these days and I understand that Aces automatically assigns the correct IDT/ input device transformation for Raw files. However, if I export a transcoded R3d file out of Redcine-X as a Prores File as "Full Graded" RWG/LOG3G10, Resolve will automatically assign the same IDT to multiple instances of the same ProRes file. I would have thought I would be given the option to select which Transform I wanted to use for each Prores clip.

    This is only a problem when using different portions of the same Prores file. Sometimes I may want to experiment with a different IDT on a different portion of the Prores file or try the Aces Lut I made that I am refining.
