Blackmagic Design has released a new version of DaVinci Resolve with enhanced CinemaDNG RAW image processing.

Version 11.2 includes new soft clipping features, improved round trip workflows with Avid Media Composer 8.3 and support for the DNxHR codec, the manufacturer said. 

“The new CinemaDNG colour algorithms are an incredible improvement in image processing technology,” said Blackmagic Design chief executive Grant Petty.

“This new processing turns wide dynamic range RAW images into HD Rec. 709 in a way that retains more colour detail and subtlety, making pictures look more natural and lifelike than ever before, especially when working with digital film cameras from Blackmagic Design.”

Other features in DaVinci Resolve 11.2 include the ability to select RGB pixel order when working with DPX 2.0 files, new flag and marker support in ColorTrace, and support for the Red SDK 5.3.

DaVinci Resolve 11.2 is available for download free of charge for ll existing DaVinci Resolve customers.
