DaVinci Resolve 12.5.3 update adds compatibility with the new XML 1.6 format used in the latest version of Final Cut Pro X. That means customers using the new version of Final Cut Pro X will be able to seamlessly send projects to DaVinci Resolve for color correction and finishing and also generate XML’s to export projects back to Final Cut Pro X. In addition, DaVinci Resolve 12.5.3 includes PostgreSQL 9.5.2 for compatibility with macOS Sierra.

DaVinci Resolve 12.5.3 also adds support for ACES version 1.0.2, including the ACEScct color space. ACEScct is a a quasi-logarithmic encoding of ACES data to make it suitable for color grading with DaVinci Resolve 12.5.3.

This new update also improves interoperability with Media Composer. AAF projects containing dip to color dissolves and certain transformation effects such as flip and flop are greatly improved, making it easier to successfully move projects from Media Composer to DaVinci Resolve for finishing. DaVinci Resolve 12.5.3 also improves Dolby Vision XML exporting for mastering and finishing high dynamic range content.

“In addition to being an incredible editing and color correction solution, one of the things that customers love the most about DaVinci Resolve is that it just works with everything,” said Grant Petty, CEO, Blackmagic Design. “This new update makes it easier and more reliable than ever to move projects from Final Cut Pro X and Media Composer into DaVinci Resolve. Once there, customers can use improved ACES and DolbyVision support to edit, color correct and finish their projects in high dynamic range and at the highest possible quality!”
