In addition, replace edits now work correctly with multicam clips. DaVinci Resolve 16.1.1 also addresses issues with audio gain keyframes on the edit page, improves H.264 encoding and 4K Cinema DNG performance, and makes working with AAFs that have multiple embedded audio channels more reliable.
Ratings and Reviews
Great App, more stable than the web download.
I love it, it’s more stable than the DL from the BMD site.
But the export FPS is crazy low.. Talking about 3-7 FPS export comparing to the Web DL which goes at 25-29 FPS.
Thats a breaker for me.
My solution is edit and color grade in the App version and then open the project in the Web version to export…
BMD please fix this!
That’s the only reason I give it 3 stars… other than that it’s a big 5.
Getting better and better
Really great softwear. For people that don't know how to import media, On the version from the App Store, you have to place all your media in DaVinci folder at the movie directory.
