Blackmagic Design has released DaVinci Resolve 8.1.

The 8.1 software update includes support for Apple Final Cut Pro X XML round trip.

Users can import and export FCPX timelines using the new Final Cut Pro rich XML file format to move projects between FCPX and DaVinci Resolve.

Blackmagic said it will allow users to retain multi track timelines with frame accurate cuts, dissolves and speed changes.

DaVinci Resolve will also use rich XML from Final Cut Pro X to link to original camera footage.

The software is also compatible with Avid AAF for round trip with Avid Media Composer.

This new AAF support includes effects such as dip to colour, edge and centre wipe with border, clock and venetian blind wipe and also cross, oval and diamond iris wipe and overlay composite.

The update is available to DaVinci Resolve customers free of charge and can be downloaded from the Blackmagic Design website.
