    my understanding is that it can do everything the linux version can, barring 3D due to graphics card limitations.

    i also seem to remember from the demo i had, that you can output anything you like within reason. can’t remember 100% though.

    Yes you can render out to 2K/4K in the Render page.

    I would also like to know the answer to this question.

    Yep, something along the lines of a comparison table would be ideal. I fear that going down the route of Resolve for Mac might be a cosmetic upgrade rather than an actually workflow improvement. I currently work predominantly with 2k DPX and uncompressed streams in Apple Color, granted it’s not real-time playback, but that has never been a real issue for me. What HAS been an issue is the reputation of Apple Color in the UK for film work, it’s has a tendency to appear lowend to many filmmakers, especially in the higher budget productions.

    So my wonder in short is, will the extra investment into a Resolve for Mac actually deliver what Apple Color currently does, or are we just buying into a brand? I think this is especially pertinent, as I suspect that the core purchases will come from users/companies who have currently already invested into Apple Color/Final Touch.
