    This might be the version that convinces me to switch from FCPX.

    A massive update. More here on BMD’s microsite for Resolve

    Apple innovated with the trackless and magnetic timeline and great keyword-based organized but years have gone by since then and while they add features generally already existing in other NLEs they’ve long since stopped innovating compared to Blackmagic.

    The Magic Mask feature seems great. With Apple making a lot of noise about the Machine Learning 16 core Neural Processors in the new M1 Macs, and the FCPX Summit next week, I hope they show something similar for FCPX next week.

    Blackmagic has just announced that the beta version of Resolve 17.1 has been posted, with the headline feature being support for macOS Big Sur. What took them so long? ?

    Seriously though, what does this even mean and how is this possible? Why didn’t intel lead this charge already?

    “As stated by Blackmagic: “Significantly, the combination of M1, Metal processing, and DaVinci Resolve 17.1 offers up to 5 times better performance when compared to previous generation computers”.”

    5 times what exactly. However the very fact that Resolve has already a version for the M1 chips that looks like it will seriously outperform Intel chips sort of vindicates my recent concerns about people buying Intel Mac laptops right now. I can report my friend cancelled her MacBook Intel order and is now deciding on when to jump with the ARM versions.

    5x what, indeed. Again, I’m not saying what Apple has done here is easy, I just don’t understand how they could be first to 5x performance, saving 5x the wattage. I do see why NVIDIA is set to pay $40B for ARM though, if the performance gains are that dramatic.

    I still maintain intel is a safer buy today. Seems odd to recommend a new OS and new processing technology to a professional, especially since Apple themselves have announced a multi-year transition period, and still sells intel machines. I feel if the shoe was on the other foot, and this was some sort of Windows transition, the suggestion might be different to the friend.
