And again Blackmagic has released another - and as always free - update for its grading, editing, compositing and (audio) mastering tool DaVinci Resolve (Studio) for Windows, macOS and Linux.
After first the OS X version and then Windows support for the 12K BRAW material of Blackmagic's new URSA Mini Pro 12K camera, the Linux version follows. The update to version 16. 3 Beta 3 provides support for the Blackmagic RAW 2.0 Beta 3 (which includes 12K BRAW support) on Linux as well as general performance and stability improvements.

Also new is a significant reduction of GPU memory for 12K files, which results in about a third less memory consumption (which is especially beneficial for Windows users, according to Blackmagic).
The new features include a gamut compression switch that can be applied to any Gamut/Color Science generation and ARRI Wide Gamut and LogC decoding options added for users accustomed to using these color spaces in their workflows.
As always, Blackmagic recommends all users to update to this latest version and to back up all active databases and running projects before updating.
