DaVinci Resolve for Mac Configuration Guide, December 2010

An updated version of the DaVinci Resolve for Mac Configuration Guide has been posted on our website. You can find the PDF on the DaVinci Support page.

This edition of the guide corresponds with the release of on the Resolve 7.1 for Mac. The December 2010 guide includes the following new information:
  • The use of a certified x16 PCI Express expansion chassis is now supported which provides more slots so you can install more PCI Express cards such as extra GPUs, RED Rockets and a HBA card to connect with your disk storage.
  • Multiple GPUs can be installed in a PCI Express expansion chassis to provide greater image processing performance. Please note it is best to use the same kind of GPUs in the chassis. If the GPUs are of different types, we expect the performance of the faster GPU to be limited to the same speed as the slower GPU in the same chassis.
  • Two RED Rocket cards can be used when working with r3d files in stereoscopic 3D.
  • Support for the JL Cooper Eclipse CX panel has been added and now appears in the DaVinci Resolve Preferences.
  • Apple ProRes read/write codec support is now installed by the DaVinci Resolve application itself. It is now optional as to whether you wish to install Final Cut Studio on the same Mac as Resolve when working with ProRes files.
  • "Choosing graphics cards for your Mac Pro" has been added to the guide to help determine which combinations of GPU and GUI cards can be used in a Mac Pro without adding a PCI Express expansion chassis.
We hope this guide proves useful and please let us know if there is anything you would like added or changed in the guide.
