32 Bit Photoshop Support
DFT can now be applied to 32 bit images in Photoshop.
A Frost diffusion filter has been added. Frost glows highlights and reduces contrast while softening facial blemishes and wrinkles. It is a combination of the Silk and Mist filters.
OpenCL GPU Support in Resolve
OpenCL GPU support in Blackmagic Design Resolve was enhanced resulting in significant speed increases. Note:
Setting Resolve’s Hardware Configuration > GPU Processing Mode preference from Auto to OpenCL may be necessary on Windows systems to realize the speed increase.
The Video/Film version of DFT now uses the OpenColorIO standard originally developed by Sony Pictures Imageworks for its color management. OCIO is compatible with the Academy Color Encoding Specification (ACES) and is LUT-format agnostic, supporting many popular formats. In DFT, you can load custom color configuration files, apply color space conversions, as well as use other controls for fine tuning. The Color Management window is opened by selecting View > Window > Color Management.
Frame Selection in Video Browser
A Time Bar was added to the DFT user interface in Video/Film hosts. Moving the slider loads a new frame into the Viewer. Note: The Time Bar is only available in host applications that support this feature.
Lens Flare > Flare Editor
The Lens Flare > Flare Editor button was restored in Windows versions. A recent update mistakenly removed it.
