Quick off the mark, Blackmagic has today announced a new update to the DaVinci Resolve 17 Beta. The new 17.1 version adds support for Apple’s new M1-powered Macs. The new update brings all of the recently released features of the DaVinci Resolve 17 Beta to the new M1 Macs, including the new HDR grading tools, redesigned colour wheels, next-generation Fairlight engine and all the rest of it.
Literally, the only thing the new DaVinci Resolve 17.1 Beta 1 offers over DaVinci Resolve 17 is support for the M1 Macs. It’s designed to take advantage of the unified memory architecture on the M1 to increase performance on the new systems.
