DaVinci Resolve 16 and Fusion 16 release candidate

PostWed Jul 03, 2019 5:35 am

With thanks to everyone who has participated in the public beta program, today we are pleased to announce that DaVinci Resolve 16 Studio beta 5 and Fusion 16 Studio beta 5 are now available on our support web site. https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/suppor ... and-fusion

We believe this release candidate is ready for you to migrate to and so we strongly encourage all beta users to update to this beta version as we move closer to GM.

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.

DaVinci Resolve beta 5 readme

• Addressed an issue where the source viewer would sometimes show incorrect waveforms for clips with synced audio
• Addressed an issue where dragging clips from the file browser to the timeline would sometimes not show the full clip waveform

Fusion
• Improved visual progress and feedback when rendering savers on the Fusion page
• Improved the performance of paint when a large numbers of individual strokes are used
• Improved tiling calculations in renderer3D, allowing larger render sizes to be handled more efficiently
• Improved performance of LUTs used with GPU acceleration

• Addressed an issue where the trails tool would fail to function correctly on multi-GPU systems
• Addressed an issue where pre-matte range on ultrakeyer could cause incorrect results
• Addressed an issue where attaching certain modifiers to clone controls, such as merge or blur’s blend, would cause a hang
• Addressed an issue in channel boolean where copying auxiliary channels into color channels would cause the red and blue channels to be swapped
• Addressed an issue in channel boolean where copying non-existent auxiliary channels would cause a crash

• Addressed an issue where fullscreen flipbooks would sometimes cause a crash during playback
• Addressed multiple issues with view layout not being correctly restored, especially when dealing with maximized view panes
• Addressed an issue with cleanplate, where the grow edges option could cause inconsistent results
• Addressed an issue where nodes performing fill operations on integer images could fill with incorrect values
• Addressed an issue where a transform-matrix based tool (merge, transform, trackers, etc) could crash if all layers’ DoD fell outside the resultant image
• Addressed an issue with lumakeyer, where it would use swapped red and blue channels in certain cases
• Addressed several issues where excessive GPU memory could be used, resulting in errors or crashes
