Blackmagicdesign updates Da Vinci Resolve 17 with support for AV1 decoding in Windows
The popular alternative to Adobe Premiere Pro, Da Vinci Resolve, now has a new update with extended video codec support and much more in its changelog. Blackmagicdesign has announced that the latest form of its video editing software - v.17.2 - adds support for AV1 decoding on Windows.
The new update also adds MKV clip decoding across all platforms, which include NVIDIA, AMD and Intel's platforms. Speaking of those, Da Vinci Resolve 17.2 also offers further acceleration for AV1 on these chipsets. Otherwise, there is a raft of new additions and optimizations, including visibility for project-name subfolders within media management that wasn't there before.
Da Vinci Resolve 17.2 users can now also move audio clips to match time-codes positions in their project's timelines. Most platforms (Mac and Linux included) enact the update through opening DaVinci Resolve Installer and following the instructions that should pop up automatically.
