Pre-installation Notes

  • Support for decoding and encoding of easyDCP formats is not currently available on Linux

Performing Audio Ducking using Sidechain

DaVinci Resolve now supports automatic audio ducking using sidechain in the Fairlight page Dynamics effect.

Enable "Send" in the track dynamics compression section on one of multiple tracks where you would like to emphasize or prioritize the audio. Then enable Compression and "Listen" on all the tracks you would like to compress or duck. The threshold and ratio can be adjusted in the compression settings to modify the amount of compression in the signal.

External Audio Processes

DaVinci Resolve now has support for a round-trip mechanism which allows any clip on the timeline to be sent to an external application for audio processing. The updated file created by the external audio process is automatically added to the timeline as a new layer.

External Audio Processes can be added and managed in the Audio Plugins section of System Preferences. The round-trip process can be triggered from the clip context menu on the timeline.

Generating Supplemental IMF Packages

DaVinci Resolve Studio now supports generation of supplemental packages for IMFs when using Resolve's Kakadu-based J2K decoder and encoder. Please note that you will need to disable the easyDCP decoder option in the Configuration tab of System Preferences to enable this feature.

With an IMF composition in the Media Pool, you can select "Create New Timeline Using Composition Playlist" in the clips context menu to create a new timeline. If the IMF package has any associated Dolby Vision metadata, it can be applied using an option in the creation dialog.

Any portions of the IMF timeline can now be replaced with source clips from the Media Pool. The timeline clip's context menu has an option for not including the replacement clip for supplemental packages. There is an additional context menu option for selecting either the original or updated Dolby Vision analysis and trim metadata.

In the Deliver page, the "Supplemental Package" option can be enabled in order to generate the supplemental IMF using the new clips and the Dolby Vision metadata.

Performing Photon validation on IMF packages

DaVinci Resolve Studio now supports validation of IMF packages using Photon. In order to activate this feature, the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) will need to be installed on the machine.

Photon validation can be performed by right clicking on IMF packages in the Media Pool and selecting "Perform Photon Validation". Additionally, there is a checkbox in the Deliver page advanced video settings to perform Photon validation after the IMF package is rendered.
