Resolve 15.1 slower?

PostSat Sep 15, 2018 3:37 pm

Although I haven't updated my camera to the new 6.0 Beta, I took the new DaVinci Resolve Studio 15.1 for a spin. I used the beta 15 without any problems, so I was confident installing the latest one. I opened a 4096 x 1716 @ 25fps project I had, and I immediately noticed a lag in playback - 24.x fps but no 25.

My main machine is an "almost" maxed-out 27" iMac 2017; I know it's not the fastest machine out there, but it used to work flawlessly under moderate to high load (some grading nodes, a bit o stabilisation here or there, etc.). As a result, I reinstalled Resolve 15.0.1 and everything went back to normal.

I now regret I didn't unplugged my UltraStudio 4K Extreme before reinstalling Resolve to test if Desktop Video 10.11.2 could be the culprit.

Anyone else experienced something similar?

No, it's not Desktop Video 10.11.2 / UltraStudio, I just tested with my UltraStudio unplugged. These are some details, in case it helps:

Hardware:
- iMac 5K 2017 (4.2GHz i7, 2TB SSD, 32GB RAM, High Sierra)
- LG UltraFine 5K as a secondary display
- Blackmagic UltraStudio 4K Extreme
- Blackmagic Micro Panel

Resolve project
- 25 fps, 4608 x 2592 Cinema DNG source files
- 4096 x 1716 timeline
