Release of DaVinci Resolve Studio 17 & 17.1 Public Beta 6

PostMon Dec 21, 2020 5:19 am

We are pleased to announce the release of DaVinci Resolve Studio 17 Public Beta 6, as well as DaVinci Resolve Studio 17.1 Public Beta 6, the universal app supporting M1 powered Macs. The DaVinci Resolve 17.1 releases are compatible with macOS Big Sur on both platforms, and is initially only available for Mac with Apple M1.

Both releases are no charge updates for existing customers who can download this release from our support page. They are available for download from: ... and-fusion

Pre-Installation Note:
For those using DaVinci Resolve or DaVinci Resolve Studio on Windows, we strongly recommend uninstalling previous versions prior to installing 17 Public Beta 5 and higher versions. Going forward, all Fairlight, grading and editor keyboard firmware updates will be managed from the DaVinci Control Panels Setup utility.

Important information regarding database management
DaVinci Resolve 17.0 and 17.1 require a database upgrade from DaVinci Resolve 16.2.7 and previous versions. We strongly recommend that you back up your existing database (both DiskDB and PostgreSQL) and then restore that database for the upgrade before upgrading to this release.
