NVIDIA *Studio* Driver 441.66 BRAW Fix

PostTue Dec 10, 2019 5:16 pm

Today NVIDIA released Gaming Driver version 441.66. In the release notes is this statement:
Fixed Issues in this Release
[Resolve]: The application may crash during timeline playback when using Blackmagic RAW CODEC media. [2753421]
Perhaps someone who is using a recent NVIDIA driver because of requirements of another application and working around the BRAW-freezing/crashing issue by turning off GPU decoding of BRAW could give this a try. As I don't have that requirement I'm going to stick with Studio driver 431.86 for now.

Edited to add: NVIDIA dropped the other shoe, releasing the Studio driver 441.66. I ran a quick test with 9x BRAW clips playing security-camera style at the same time, no crash.

Odd they would release this in a Gaming driver update, but not a Studio driver update.

Between this and the introduction of the bug to begin with, it seems like nVidia isn't getting the point of the Studio driver, which they invented!

Since regression testing takes time, or at least should take time, I'm not surprised that they would release the fix in a gaming driver first and I'd expect to see the Studio version released in a week or so.

I just tried this on my laptop that always locked up when I imported BRAW clips and started scrubbing. It no longer locks up.

Back in business!

Have updated the OP to reflect this.

So if you have been using BRAW with GPU decoding switched off to allow using a recent driver required by other applications, this is something you'll want to try.

NVIDIA has released both a Gaming Driver AND a Studio Driver versioned 441.66. Since the Studio version was released a few hours later, I don't think it's the same as the Gaming. Here is the filename of the installer for the Studio version I downloaded: "441.66-desktop-win10-64bit-international-nsd-whql"
