Nvidia has released a new version of its Studio Driver (version 457.30) for download, which includes optimizations for DaVinci Resolve 17 Beta, Keyshot 10, Notch, BorisFX Continuum 2021 and Mocha Pro 2021, Red Giant Trapcode Suite 16 and Magic Bullet Suite 14 as well as Topaz Video Enhance AI. If you use one of these programs together with an Nvidia GPU, you should install the new driver.
DaVinci Resolve 17 now available as beta version
DaVinci Resolve 17, the latest version of Blackmagic's free software for editing, color correction, visual effects, motion graphics and audio editing, brings more than 300 new features, including the AI capabilities of the DaVinci Neural Engine, which uses several Nvidia AI libraries and tensor cores found on the latest NVIDIA RTX GPUs to speed operations. The new RTX-accelerated features include, in addition to the previous version 16 features, such as Speed Warp, Super Scale, Auto Color, Face Detection and Stylize Transfer:
- Magic Mask - with fast brush strokes, areas can be automatically created to crop and track body parts or objects. - Smart Reframe - automatic recognition and tracking of desired objects with automatic adjustment to keep them in the image. - Detection of cuts between scenes - analysis of the content on the timeline including detection of cut marks and isolation of each scene.

Video upscaling from Topaz Video Enhance AI
Topaz Video Enhance AI allows you to highly interpolate the resolution of videos using AI - SD becomes HD, HD becomes 4K.
The latest software includes performance optimizations to reduce overhead, improve model load times and reduce VRAM usage.
The new version has added 81 new filters, all 100 percent GPU-accelerated via OpenCL.
Red Giant Trapcode Suite 16 Refractor
Trapcode Suite 16 brings 3D particle systems directly into Adobe After Effects and uses particle emitters to create fire, water, smoke, snow and other organic visual effects.
Trapcode Particular gets a complete refractor update, for more possibilities to simulate complex particle effects, such as combining air and jump physics or the reaction of wind effects depending on the mass, size and drag of the particles for more realistic simulations.
New tools in the Red Giant Magic Bullet Suite 14
Magic Bullet Suite 14 is a comprehensive set of plug-ins for optimizing video material directly in the timeline. It uses powerful color adjustments to balance shots, going beyond color correction with precise simulations of lens filters and footage. The new Color Remap in Magic Bullet Looks allows editors to match any color to any other color while viewing the result in a 3D color cube.
Boris FX Mocha Pro 2021 expands VFX with new PowerMesh tracking
The new version of the GPU-accelerated planar tracking tool Mocha Pro 2021 now features PowerMesh, a unique new sub-planar tracking engine for organic and distorted surface tracking, rotoscoping and VFX.
The November Studio driver (version 457.30) can now be downloaded from GeForce Experience or driver download page. Studio drivers are designed specifically for developers and have been extensively tested with the best creative applications and workflows. The Studio drivers run on Nvidia Ttian, RTX 30, RTX 20, GeForce 16 and GeForce 10 series graphics cards.
