I'm hoping they stop killing the old Nvidia card support. I had to roll back after my GTX 760 stopped working after an updated app version.

- Native speech to text transcription function
Adobe has it for FREE, while not 100% accurate FREE > Paid Third-Party Vendor

- Display Audio Time Units on the Timeline
I like Resolve's timeline but sometimes I find the granularity of the trimming tools could be improved

- "Adobe Remix" feature
I use this all the time with stock music, it's really the only thing keeping Adobe Audition installed on my system

- "ScriptSync" feature
If you have ever used this feature in Avid then you know how utterly powerful it can be. This is the ONE feature that I think would take Resolve over the top.

Wishlist: Update on their Face Refinement Tools that use AI to track the face better.
AI based noise reduction.

One word, ASIO. The lack of it in Windows means it's DOA as a Win NLE for pro's until they fix that.

You know what would be a REALLY awesome update? If Smart Cache would become, you know... smart.

Add support for Debian and Ubuntu Linux, and add better support to multiple GPU systems so that I can use the ram from both cards so I can work with and deliver 4k or 6k footage without noise or other errors; right now I can only deliver 1080p footage if I want a clean video, fix this issue please.

THIS!!! I would love for offical support for Debian/Ubunutu distros like Pop OS!

Something I would need is a cutting function to cut a clip in multiple clips of x seconds. I don't know if this already exists and if so if you could point it out to me I would be so grateful! much Love Marco

ProRes Export would be nice. Adobe has it.

I'm hoping for a better software/hardware integration with Radeon graphics cards and CPU power. FCPX does it much better and you can do incredible things even on older machines. Resolve has improved on this side in the last two big releases but noto that much. And it could be nice to see a faster noise reduction and, on the side of the whole package of blackmagic raw, the possibility to preview clips without opening them as for all others mac files.

Very important to mention here, that the new requirement for Cuda 11 makes it impossible to use DR on a lot of laptops, that are perfectly fine for video editing - if developers would just make CUDA features optional with more powerful cards... this is very disappointing and will force buying new hardware... very unfriendly.

They already did this brutal step with 16.2.7 - it introduced hardware compatibility breakage for version 16 - with a minor release! That would be an absolute no go with any pro software - hardware and budget planning gets screwed with this - oh, we need new hardware for this minor version upgrade - wtf?

Please note: it would be relatively easy for every developer to make code paths that use more powerful GPUs optional and keep backwards compatibility - this is simply a slap in the users face or indicates some serious development problems with BMD - also seeing Resolve getting more and more crashy with every release makes it look like the Resolve Tower of Babel is getting too complicated for the team - the forward run to CUDA 11 without backwards compatibility options seems to be an act of desperation. It seems like developers are loosing control over that monster code base... BMD needs to put more effort into stabilizing code.

If you are into a real project with real money - be very careful with this!
