Resolve 12 Users Rejoice Over El Capitan

I’m sure that many of you OSX users have seen that App Store message from time to time, suggesting that you upgrade your OS. If you are a Resolve 12 user, you’ll be in heaven. However, if you want to continue to happily use your Macs with Adobe Premiere or Avid Media Composer, you should calm yourself before jumping to the next upgrade.

You see, Apple has a way of upgrading their software to sell more hardware. This is because the business is a hardware-based company. Unlike Microsoft, whose only hardware winner is the finally famous XBox, Apple has no problem selling computers to people. In fact, Apple has you anticipating how you are going to buy the next version of the machine you already own of theirs before it even hits the streets.resolve 12

My point is, I don’t care if the new OSX fixes or enhances compatibility with the Apple Watch, or iOS or any other of those gadgets that Apple uses to lure its victims. I just want it to work with the great non-Apple software that I purchased to use with my flashy Apple computer!

With all that being said, the link to the article below will caution you as I am trying to caution you about Apple’s newest El Capitan release. FCPX users should be alright when upgrading because you have complied to the whims of your master. However, those trying to escape being imprisoned in the beautiful, rock-walled garden which is Apple, beware of El Capitan until the smoke clears and the dust settles.

AVID: “There are open bugs and known issues with the current shipping versions of some of our products that will need to be addressed prior to qualification.”

Adobe: “We are aware of some issues users of Premiere Pro may experience after upgrading to OS X El Capitan. We are working hard to resolve these issues in an forthcoming release but currently recommend users remain on OS X 10.10.x.

The German website Mac & I reports that OS X El Capitan is the first OS X version that makes use of 10-bit drivers (30-bit color RGB) for the company’s latest computers.

The 4K and 5K iMacs have been confirmed to make use of the 10-bit drivers (whether or not they all have capable displays has not yet been confirmed). Other people are reporting that newer Mac Pros can also output 10-bit color using compatible monitors.

The new output lets you potentially see over a billion colors instead of the 16.8 million that you get with 8-bit color — huge for photo editors and other creatives who do high-end work with photos, videos, and graphics.

Right now, it seems that DaVinci Resolve 12 users with Apple Retina displays or external displays capable of 10-bit color will be the only ones to receive the greatest benefit.
