Wow, really impressive. In the last few days learning basic editing on Resolve, I've got a list of feature requests and bugs, and about 5 of them have been addressed in this update... Well done!

Hello, Ales
Providing more complete hardware/Operating System specs would really help us a lot. For example:
Which flavor of Windows 10 have you (full name please) and which update number is it?

Regarding your PC system build, hardware-wise, Ales, what are its specifications and internally-attached peripherals? (See my signature below for ideas).

What happened to the icons on the source monitor that allowed you just to drag the image only or audio only rather than both? They were so useful!

The problem went away after a reboot. I don't know what caused it.

My issues:

Edit page:
Having an issue where the drag handles to extend or shorten a clip dont appear sometimes when I hover the mouse over the edges of a clip. I have to resize the track before the drag handles will appear. Havent experienced this in previous versions.

Subclips:
Subclips still dont retain optimized media linkages making them pretty cumbersome to use

Fast forwarding at high speed while playing back audio in the source viewer seems broken. Visuals dont update right and the playhead jumps around.

I very much wish I could sort groups. I've had this issue for a long time; just never mentioned it.

As I add Groups, the new ones show up at the bottom of the list.
It would be nice if they simply auto sorted A - Z. That would be enough in itself.
Then you could name the Groups in an organizational way.

Also, it would be nice to be able to filter a groups right from the context menu, rather than having to go to Clip/Group/Filters to do it.

I have lost my middle-click apply grade function several times and have to restart. Also, = and -. Even copy and paste of grades?

Anyone else experience that?

Thanks for all these update/fix!
I’ve just finish editing 4 30min tv show
With beta 6 with a couple of fusion fx,
My concern now it’s about exporting clean aaf audio out to protools,
It’s a really annoying, there is random offsync different on track and in time
2sec, 14frame, 10 frame, -2frame...
I spend 2days resync the sound in protools,
Trying to explain to my client thats because a bug with the software...
They just ask me to use avid or premiere instead for the next time...
Please make a fix for this, give us omf export... or a protools export that work!
I am 100% with resolve please find us a way.

It' not the Beta7 specific bug. In fact, it is not a bug at all. But it is the problem which can be, I hope, be addressed in the next releases?

Image scaling for VideoMonitoring is a mess. If you grading 4K foitage but monitoring it with FullHD monitor, which is not an unusual situation (fir example, from laotop via UltraStudii MiniMonitor) - you will see only cropped image on the monitor. So, you have to change output image scaling, but it affect everything from grab stills to final render.

Is it possible to separate output scaling from video monitoring output?

Oh i just seen above that others are having the same issue.....

Bug:

Since the beta 7 update, the timeline output blanking has a problem. Idk if its just me. But during regular preview everything is fine. its when i export the video where the aspect ratio is totally off and messes up the video.

now i just use a png 2.35 letterbox over the whole timeline edit
