Blackmagic is known for its unusually fast update frequency, and the last major 18.1 update has not changed this. Only 12 days after its release, a new version 18.1.1 is now available for download, which not only (but of course also) includes bug fixes.
The most serious change is the support for the Blackmagic RAW 2.8 SDK which now also supports the Fujifilm X-T5 Blackmagic RAW clips. In addition, there is now finally an anamorphic desqueeze function directly in raw development.
Another feature that many users have surely been longing for is a new option under Windows to override the automatic display scaling in the default settings. If you have good eyes, you will be able to accommodate many more controls on high-resolution displays.
In brief, there are the following changes compared to the last version of DaVinci Resolve:
* Support for Blackmagic RAW SDK 2.8.
* Option in preferences to manually override display scaling under Windows.
* Fixed an issue with incorrect clip thumbnails on some systems.
* Fixed keyboard shortcuts for switching primaries.
* Fixed an issue with rendering MXF clips with embedded subtitles.
* Fixed audio dropouts and artefacts when using voice isolation.
* Fixed audio clicks when monitoring after changing EQ type.
* Fixed a Text3D issue with characters overlapping.
* Fixed an issue when importing tracking data into Fusion.
* Fixed an issue when evaluating group or macro tool expressions.
* Fixed an issue with Text+ on old CPUs.
* General performance and stability improvements.
As always, updates are free for existing customers. The current version 18.1.1 is now available for download for MacOS, Linux and Windows 10/11.
