I got the email yesterday and went to see if it was available, but just a announcement. I just use the free version to check 8K playback and verify that my R5 is recording all the video modes properly.

Wow, that came out of no where. It is amazing how tight a ship they run over at BMD.

A lot to like in there. The biggest for me is that the it sounds like the color controls will no longer be hyper sensitive when you are editing in ACES. Sound like it might be easier to have parallel SDR & HDR paths. If it is possible to do one grade and deliver both that would be huge but I am not sure that is what they are describing.

With more AI it is going to mean we are going to need bigger. beefier video cards. Lets hope AMD and NVidia get their supply act together. What I don't see here is better support for AMD video cards on Linux in specific the ability to use the hardware encoders and decoders like you can with NVidia. That sucks rhinos.

Great for Mac, terrible for PC. The interface on the Windows version is not scaleable. You need a microscope to read the menu items or anything else in the interface.
Edit: if you use your 65" 4K TV as a monitor, you'll probably be able to read the menus

Same thing on Linux. But they have made changes in the interface with 17 to make some things much easier to see. The new magic mask is just insane in how well it works. You can do rotoscoping with out a green screen. Amazing. The warping tool is another really great idea.

Never did get davinci resolve to work on my linux box (and it won't work on my windows box either, I'm running a super old version of windows, airgapped).

A great package for those who can use it, meanwhile I've been using Flowblade which is buggy and crashprone.

Jeah, indeed a bummer - and disapointing that they still didnt fix it in V17.
But there is a fix: rightclick the application, properties, compatibility, High dpi settings. There you can try some stuff like forcing the windows scaling...
