Release of DaVinci Resolve 16 Studio beta 4

PostThu Jun 06, 2019 4:35 am

Thank you everyone who has participated in the public beta program for DaVinci Resolve 16 and Fusion 16. The feedback and automatic reports have greatly assisted.

Today we are pleased to announce that DaVinci Resolve 16 Studio beta 4 and Fusion 16 Studio beta 4 are now available as no charge updates for existing users on our support web site. https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/suppor ... and-fusion

We strongly encourage all beta users to update to this beta version as we move closer to GM we would like your feedback on beta 4.

For users moving from v15, please back up your database, make drp's of your active projects and restore the DB in preparation for the version upgrade as you can not go back to v15 with a v16 DB.
