1 minute read

The first point release of the new DaVinci Resolve 18.5 has just dropped with a variety of bug fixes.

Not much in the way of new features to talk about in DaVinci Resolve 18.5.1, but that is hardly surprising given the sheer number that crept into the 18.5 release since it was announced back around NAB

DaVinci Resolve 18.5.1 is all about bug fixes and addressing issues that users were finding out in the field. Here's the list:

What's new in DaVinci Resolve 18.5.1

  • Addressed clips incorrectly switching grade version when stabilized.
  • Addressed playback issues with voice isolation on some systems.
  • Addressed audio playback issues when adding tracks to bus 25 or higher.
  • Addressed a potential issue pasting tracking data between power windows.
  • Addressed issues with pasting tracked power windows.
  • Addressed missing audio effects when decomposing timelines.
  • Addressed an issue with some Open FX overlays on Windows and Linux.
  • Addressed playhead sometimes not updating when in offline viewer mode.
  • Addressed an adjustment clip trim issue in the Fairlight page.
  • Addressed a startup crash during Fairlight load.
  • Addressed incorrect file location when bouncing clips with audio effects.
  • Addressed a memory issue with some Fusion tools.
  • Addressed an issue with USD viewer selection in Windows and Linux.
  • Addressed a crash in Resolve FX Relight on macOS 12.5 and below.
  • General performance and stability improvements.

As ever, the free version of DaVinci Resolve 18.5 includes all of the same high quality processing as DaVinci Resolve Studio 18.5 and can handle unlimited resolution media files. However it does limit project mastering and output to Ultra HD resolutions or lower. DaVinci Resolve 18.5 only supports a single processing GPU on Windows and Linux and 2 GPUs on the latest Mac Pro.

If you need features such as support for multiple GPUs, 4K output, motion blur effects, temporal and spatial noise reduction, de-interlacing, HDR tools, camera tracker, multiple Resolve FX, 3D stereoscopic tools and remote rendering, then you're going to have to upgrade to DaVinci Resolve Studio 18.5. Current pricing is $295.
