M1 Pro - Software version?

PostSat Dec 04, 2021 5:14 pm

Have persuaded a friend of mine to migrate from Premiere Pro over to DR17.
He just bought a 16inch M1 Pro.
Looking over the software versions (M1) only mentioned for the base V17.
Should I advise him to install 17.4.2 straight off the bat?
Or V17?
BTW I run 17.4.2 on my iMac Pro..works really well.
Thank you.
iMac Pro (2017)
MacOS Big Sur
Processory 3.2 GHz Intel Xeon W
64 GB of memory
Graphics Radeon Pro Vega 64 - 16 GB
Multiple SSD drives and constant supply of Coffee

Go with 17.4.2 which is the most current release.
⟦ Mac Pro Rack • 16-core 3.2GHz • 32GB RAM • Radeon 580X | Resolve Studio 17.4.3 | macOS 12.1 ⟧
⟦ Fairlight Console (AE/ILP/2FP) • Fairlight Audio Accelerator | Intensity Pro 4K • Desktop Video 12.1 ⟧

The software is dual binary and it'll work natively on Intel or M1 Macs.
My new M1 Pro laptop flies with 17.4.2 build 9 and is very stable. Plus, it's rendering without the dreaded fan noise I got with my 2017 iMac.
Don't approach Resolve with your expectations from other NLEs! They are all different.
