  • Improved support for MacOS 11 Big Sur

  • Added GPU support for Apple Silicon (M1 / M1 Pro / M1 Max)

  • Improvements in GUI:

    • Several corrections in menus
    • Added hints in several controls
    • Added shortcut for Auto Profile with Current Frame
  • Improved support for color themes (Preferences > General):

    • The Normal brightness theme has been re-implemented and improved
    • Enhancements in the Auto-detect brightness option
    • Adjustments in the Reduced brightness color theme
  • Enhanced visual appearance on high-DPI monitors

  • Improved support for multi-monitor systems with different DPIs

  • Improved stability of GPU-based processing of large frames

  • Optimized Neat Video benchmark in GPU and GPU+CPU modes

  • Improved installer

  • End-User License Agreement has been updated

  • Fixed several minor issues

Version 5.4.7

  • Added support for AMD Radeon Pro W6800X / W6800X Duo / W6900X

  • Fixed several minor issues

Version 5.4.5

  • Added support for AMD RX 6800, RX 6800 XT, RX 6900 XT

  • Optimized performance on Apple Silicon (M1) systems

  • Improved information and error messages

  • Several improvements in GUI

  • Several corrections in documentation

  • Fixed several minor issues

Version 5.4.0

  • Universal Binary version of the plug-in to support Apple Silicon (M1) Macs

  • Added support and optimizations for new versions of host applications:

    • Resolve 17
    • Resolve Studio 17
  • Added support for MacOS Big Sur (11.x)

  • The minimum supported version of MacOS is now 10.13.6.

    If you need to use the plug-in with an older version of macOS (10.9.5 - 10.12), you can do that using Neat Video 5.3 (available in your account).

  • Optimization of several GUI elements for MacOS Big Sur

  • Added support for new AMD GPUs: Radeon Pro W5700 / W5500 / W5500X

  • CUDA is no longer supported on MacOS

    The new versions of MacOS starting from 10.14 are no longer compatible with the NVIDIA CUDA driver required to run CUDA-enabled applications and plug-ins.

    Previous versions of Neat Video could still use CUDA in MacOS 10.13 and earlier. In order to evolve Neat Video further, we had to switch to newer macOS development tools, which are no longer compatible with the NVIDIA CUDA Toolkit.

    Unfortunately this means that Neat Video 5.4 plug-ins will be unable to use CUDA in any version of MacOS.

    If you need to use CUDA with Neat Video in MacOS, you can do that using Neat Video 5.3 (available in your account).

  • Several minor bugs have been fixed

Version 5.3.0

  • Added support for new AMD GPUs:

    • Radeon Pro 5300 / 5500 XT / 5700 / 5700 XT
    • Radeon Pro 5600M

    Note: due to changes in AMD drivers, some older Graphics Core Next 1 GPUs are no longer supported.
    Please test directly or contact support to verify.
