Release of DaVinci Resolve 12.5.3

Peter Chamberlain Oct 28, 2016

  1. We are pleased to announce that DaVinci Resolve 12.5.3 is released and now available on the Blackmagic Design support web page.

    The update is available at no charge for DaVinci Resolve and DaVinci Resolve Studio users.

    New Features
    Added support for Final Cut Pro X XML Version 1.6
    Added support for PostgreSQL 9.5.2 on macOS
    Added support for ACEScct color science
    Updated ACES support from ACES 1.0.0 to ACES 1.0.2
    Improved performance when encoding to MXF XAVC
    Improved importing of Flip and Flop from AAFs from Media Composer
    Improved importing of Dip to Color dissolves from AAFs from Media Composer
    Improved Dobly Vision XML export

    This release also addresses an issue
    With FCPXML transforms for Multicam not getting imported correctly
    Where all tracks in the keyframe group get highlighted when switching between them
    With reading Drop Frame timecode from some Sony camera files
    With jagged edges when decoding YUV 422 clips
    Where project level Data Burn Ins do not get saved
    Where sync audio based on timecode would lead to incorrect results
    Where the Lift, Gamma and Gain control on the Resolve interface do not maintain Color Balance
    That could cause a machine freeze
    When undoing “Decompose in place”
    General performance and stability improvements

    Important note for PostgreSQL database uses on macOS:

    Upgrading your PostgreSQL database server on Mac

    Until DaVinci Resolve 12.5.2, the Mac installer used to ship with PostgreSQL version 8.4.2. Starting from macOS Sierra 10.12, PostgreSQL version 8.4 is no longer supported. If you intend to upgrade to the latest OS, you will need to upgrade your PostgreSQL database server to version 9.5.4 prior to upgrading macOS. Once your PostgreSQL installation has been upgraded and your data has been ported, you can then proceed with your macOS upgrade.

    We have provided apps to simplify upgrading your PostgreSQL version on your Mac. The apps along with instructions can be found in the /Library/Application Support/Blackmagic Design/DaVinci Resolve/Upgrade PostgreSQL folder.

    Starting from DaVinci Resolve 12.5.3, new installations will include PostgreSQL version 9.5.4.

    For clarification, this PostgreSQL update is only required prior to upgrading to Mac OS Sierra.
  2. Wasn't ACEScct introduced in ACES 1.0.3? Why the updates only include ACES 1.0.2?
  3. Yeah I was wondering about that too. I thought ACEScct was introduced in 1.03. Is this just a typo?
  4. maybe a typo, as it appears to react as i expect cct to do.. for those who don't read the bumph, here's the cct discription;
  5. The 12.5.3 update is to ACES 1.0.2 spec but we also added the new ACEScct color correction working space transforms that are in ACES 1.0.3.
    The balance of 1.0.3 is still in progress so we didn't list as a 1.0.3 update but did want to let you know about the ACEScct transforms.
