DaVinci Resolve 15 Studio beta 6

PostThu Jul 05, 2018 1:07 am

Thank you to everyone who have used our previous betas and providing feedback as it’s very helpful for our ongoing stability and development. Please continue to report bugs with steps to repo, system information and diagnostic logs on the v15 beta sub forum and if you have a bug, please review the forum for similar issues in the specific beta build you are using before you start a new thread.

We are pleased to announce the release of DaVinci Resolve 15 Studio beta 6. This is a no charge upgrade for existing customers and is available from the BMD support web site. https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/suppor ... and-fusion

The Studio version will work with your existing DaVinci Resolve Studio activation key and also the DaVinci Resolve Studio or Fusion Studio dongle.

If you are upgrading from v15beta 5 there is no database change however making a project DB backup is still prudent.

We see the there are a lot of users updating from v12, v12.5 and v14. Not that for all these and the early v15 betas there is a database update required so please back up your database and then most importantly import that backup to verify its status. You can save it as a copy of the original database so you can then upgrade the copy and preserve the original should you wish to re-install v14.3. We also recommend you also make a drp export of your active projects.

After installing DaVinci Resolve 15 Public Beta when you first start the application you will be prompted to update your database and we recommend you select the one you restored from the backup.

If you are Mac prior to macOS Sierra 10.12, and using DaVinci Resolve v12.5 or older, please see the details at the bottom of this post regarding upgrading of older PostGreSQL databases on older OS. You must do this prior to upgrading the OS or to v15.

General performance and stability improvements



Upgrading your PostgreSQL database server for older MacOS.
Until DaVinci Resolve 12.5.2, the Mac installer used to ship with PostgreSQL version 8.4.2. Starting from macOS Sierra 10.12, PostgreSQL version 8.4 is no longer supported. If you intend to upgrade to the latest OS, you will need to upgrade your PostgreSQL database server to version 9.5.4 prior to upgrading macOS. Once your PostgreSQL installation has been upgraded and your data has been ported, you can then proceed with your macOS upgrade.

We have provided apps to simplify upgrading your PostgreSQL version on your Mac. The apps along with instructions can be found in the /Library/Application Support/Blackmagic Design/DaVinci Resolve/Upgrade PostgreSQL folder.

Starting from DaVinci Resolve 12.5.3, new installations will include PostgreSQL version 9.5.4.
