DaVinci Resolve Beta Available For Arm-powered Macs

DaVinci Resolve is getting updated and will offer support for the new Arm-powered (“Apple Silicon”) Macs. When the first of the new Macs ship, buyers will be able to start cutting with DaVinci Resolve, as Blackmagic Design released a beta of Resolve including support for Apple’s M1 chisp.

Resolve spent a long time as one of the film industry-standards for color grading. And in recent years has become a popular NLE in part because , the majority of features are available in the free version.

In Apple’s announcement event for the Arm-based Macs the company announced Resolve and other pro apps including Photoshop and Cinema 4D would be available on the new machines.

Apple’s transition away from the X86 architecture used by both AMD and Intel may still prove a bumpy one for creative-industry pros. When you make your living working with software, you need it to work reliably after all.

Blackmagic’s announcement is promising impressive upgrades, that may help keep Apple’s pro users from jumping to Windows and Linux using the new AMD chips that have never been available on Apple computers. Only time will tell.
