Dear BMD
I create a grey scale to check how the (temperature-tint-highlight-shadow-and midtone details ) controls reacts when i change the gamma space in the node, so i found an issue that if I change it to linear or log-c or any gamma other than timeline gamma which is (Rec.709 2.4) the black is crashed when I dial the (highlight-shadow or midtone details) controls and I can't get it back until I reset it.

I'm using Resolve studio in Imac 27'' 5k and the OS high sierra 10.13.5
regards

did anything changed in the easyDCP licensing? if I ask to create a DCP, the easyDCP option came along and it let me do it. It should not (I have no license...)

I have weird colours on BMPCC footage. RAW, 24fps.
The camera records well, the footage looks good outside of DaVinci Resolve 15 beta 7.

Could be the Nvidia driver? What version are you running?

Fusion Studio has Prores encoding on Windows. And a Fusion dongle gives you Resolve Studio as well, so much win.
