Updating from Beta to Stable Release?

PostWed Aug 14, 2019 1:58 am

This was my first time participating in a beta from here. I notice that the beta for Davinci Resolve 16 is over and would like to move on to the stable release. But I'm not sure if I have to download 16 from the support page or do nothing at all since the splash screen changed a couple days ago and when I go to "check for updates", it says my version is up to date. Am I still in beta and have to download v16 or does the update to stable version happen automatically? I forgot if "beta" was shown anywhere within the program.

It seems like the last beta version or 2 had an issue with the update notification.

Look in About DaVinci Resolve. If the build number is 060, you have the release version of 16.0. If the build number is 050 or less, you still have a beta installed, and should manually download the 16.0 release from the BMD Support page, and install that.

Thanks. Looking at "About Davinci Reslove" I see v16.0.0.044. I'm guessing you was refering to the last 3 digits?

Thanks again! I went ahead and got the stable version from the support page and I now see it's 060. All is well.
