  • Resolve 8.2.2 update out, more CinemaDNG options!

    Screen shot 2012-07-12 at 3.47.17 PM.jpg

    From the readme: "CinemaDNG options for Rec.709,2.4 and 2.6 gamma, color temperature and ISO"
    It seems Resolve will support CinemaDNG more, and more.

    Does this mean v9 will be a while coming? I was under the assumption that it was about to be released. Anyways, when I get a chance I'll download it and see if the PC codec support has been improved.

      I bet They'll end up giving everyone who orders the BMC the latest version 8 with a promise of a free upgrade to 9 when it's released.

        I think they're going to include Version 9. From the BMC product page:

        Blackmagic Cinema Camera includes full DaVinci Resolve 9.0 software for Mac and Windows, so you get more color correction features that let you take advantage of Blackmagic Cinema Camera’s amazing image quality. Shoot wide dynamic range images and then make color correction decisions in post production. You will never be limited creatively by your equipment because you have the same camera and color correction technology used by the world’s leading cinematographers!

            There is really only 2 reasons to release and update to Resolve 8 with added CinemaDNG support when Resolve 9 is so close.

            1. Trying to make it so everyone including the current Resolve owners that aren't upgrading or buying the BMC able to work with the BMC's RAW footage. Basically making more people except the new camera.
            2. Resolve 9 really isn't that close to being released.

              if you use resolve, you know that every version change brings a database change too, which can bring some problems.
              This change will be big for 8-to-9 upgraders, so I think this is a safety thing

              Even if you wait with the V9 update, you will be able to work with cinemadng footage.

                laco, can you elaborate on the database change and possible issues? Not a resolve user yet.

                  In the current version of Resolve projects are stored In an SQL database unlike many other applications which store their projects as individual project files.

                  Most facilities won't upgrade the second each update for Davinci Resolve is released for a number of reasons. For one, it could corrupt the database, which may be storing current projects which are being worked on. Also there is the stability risk when installing a major release, and facilities don't usually like to risk this until they have the chance to test it.

                  With the release of version 9 you will now be able to choose to store projects as project files or a database, depending on what best suits your needs. (the new default will be storing as project files).

                      I see. What would be the advantages of storing files in a database vs a project file?

                        Resolve is crazy fast even with massive projects - just think of it, handling a lots of files, with endless corrections, trackings, masks, etc - I think that's where the SQL database shines.
                        Anyway you can - in V8 too - export your projects, and save them, send them etc. But currently when you work on a current project, it works to/from the database.

                          Thanks. It will be interesting to hear in v9 if using project files slows things down.

                            Downloaded it today. Still doesn't recognize avi codecs. Hopefully v9 will.

                              Be interesting to see what V9 has in store. If the above menu options for decoding DNG are all you get, it is a pretty primitive raw processor at this point.
                              For those that want to play, Ikonoskop just uploaded some raw cinemaDNG samples of their latest vimeo footage, The finished vimeo clip was graded in Resolve on an iMac.
