And again only one week after the last update (Beta 4) Blackmagic has already released another beta of the latest version 17 (or 17.1 for Apple M1) of its grading, editing, compositing and (audio) mastering tool DaVinci Resolve
The update through Beta 5 improves the behavior of the ResolveFX Keyer and the processing of HDR media with ResolveFX color space conversions. In addition, the new beta release of DaVinci Resolve (Studio ) 17.0/17.1 optimizes the playback of audio and display of proxy media, as well as the use of Fusion Tools in dual-screen mode. This version requires a license dongle or activation key for DaVinci Resolve Studio. As always, Blackmagic is seeking feedback on the beta release, as well as bug reports, through its forums on the Blackmagic Design website.
Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve 17
There is again both a beta version of DaVinci Resolve (Studio) 17 for Windows, Linux and Intel Macs and a version 17.1 specifically for MacOS with Apple Silicon - the latter is the Universal App that supports the new M1 Macs, meaning this version is compatible with the new MacOS Big Sur, but only runs on Macs with Apple M1 chip.
