DaVinci Resolve 17.4 Offers Five Times Faster 8K Editing on New MacBook Pros
Blackmagic Design has announced a new update to its professional video editing and color correction software, DaVinci Resolve, adding full support for Apple's latest M1 Pro and M1 Max chips. As a result, the software runs up to five times faster on Apple's new MacBook Pro models, according to the developers.
DaVinci Resolve received an update in August for Apple's M1 chip, found in the low-end 13-inch MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, and Mac mini. That update brought threefold speed increases to M1 machines, thanks to a completely reworked engine, and while the latest version of DaVinci Resolve isn't required to run natively on Apple silicon Macs, it has been optimized to take advantage of the more powerful chips in the new MacBook Pro models.
The optimizations rely on hardware acceleration support for Apple's ProRes code, which has been designed specifically for Macs with M1 Pro and M1 Max processors. Blackmagic says DaVinci Resolve runs up to five times faster on the new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro, even when editing 8K video.
In addition to support for Apple's new chips, DaVinci Resolve 17.4 adds native HDR and 120Hz video playback support for the new MacBook Pro models. The update also adds native Dropbox integration, an improved 3D keyer, and enhanced compatibility with macOS Monterey.
The DaVinci Resolve and DaVinci Resolve Studio 17.4 update is now available for download from the Blackmagic Design website for all current DaVinci Resolve users. DaVinci Resolve is a free download on the Mac App Store for individual users; Resolve Studio, the enhanced group collaboration editing suite, costs $295.

The iOS 16.4 update that is set to be released to the public in the near future includes voice isolation for cellular calls, according to notes that Apple shared today.

im NOTCH listening to you anymore.
Sorry to come off as passive-aggressive, but it's true. $295 is an absolute bargain for what you're getting. This is performance that Adobe can only conceive of in their most fevered wet dreams, and if you have to use both Premiere and After Effects (like I do) then you're paying $800+ a year in the UK.
