Only two weeks after Resolve 17.1 was released, Blackmagic Design are now rolling out another update. The latest DaVinci Resolve 17.1.1 brings support for Blackmagic RAW 2.1 Beta 4 along with 10-bit H.264 hardware decode support on Apple Silicon M1 Macs. Additionally, 2019 Mac Pro users should be able to get faster Sony Alpha 1 8K playback performance.
Besides the usual general performance and stability improvements, this software update addresses an issue with restoring older database backups as well as bugs with audio glitches in some playback scenarios. All-new enhancements and features are listed below.

As a reminder, the free DaVinci Resolve 17 includes all of the same high-quality processing as DaVinci Resolve 17 Studio and can handle unlimited resolution media files. However, it does limit project mastering and output to Ultra HD resolutions or lower. DaVinci Resolve 17 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, remote rendering, an external database server and collaboration tools that let multiple users work on the same project at the same time, upgrade to DaVinci Resolve 17 Studio for $295.
