Update Information for DaVinci Resolve 18.0.1


What is the update information for DaVinci Resolve 18.0.1 released on July 26, 2022?


Available from the support site.


This is a bug fix for 18.0.0.

This is a mandatory update for those using 18.0.0, as it includes the resolution of important bugs.

Isn't the biggest improvement "elimination of the problem that the cache file of DNxHR is not generated normally"? This phenomenon seems to occur only in the Windows environment.

The format of the render cache can be changed in "Project Settings", but "DNxHR xxx" is used by default.
Also, media offline display is determined by the presence and normality of the render cache when using the render cache. So even if the underlying data is fine, media offline will appear if there is a problem with the render cache. In 18.0.0, there were many reports of media offline, and in some cases turning off or recreating the render cache would clear it up, so there were issues with the render cache.

Now that the render cache issue has been resolved, the frequent media offline issue should be resolved.

However, even with an update to 18.0.1, referencing old render caches may result in media offline. In that case, delete the render cache once with [Play]-[Delete Render Cache]-[All] and recreate it. Render caches created after that will be corrected.
