Just two weeks after the last version, Blackmagic has already released another beta of its grading, editing, compositing and (audio) mastering tool DaVinci Resolve (Studio) 17.
The update through Beta 8 - free as always - brings support for using the HDR grading palette with a DaVinci Resolve Mini Panel, improves deinterlacing and optimizes handling of transitions when trimming audio clips. With the update, the Loudness Analyzer in Fairlight now supports Netflix loudness standards and more accurately displays sections marked with In and Out points in the Fairlight timeline.
DaVinci Resolve 17.0 Public Beta 8 also improves HDR previews when the Use Mac Display Color Profile option is enabled. When using optimized media in Performance mode, scaling during playback now works better. In addition, as always, general performance has been improved and bugs have been fixed.
Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve 17
The DaVinci Resolve Studio version requires a license dongle or activation key. As always, Blackmagic is seeking feedback on the beta version as well as bug reports via its forums on the Blackmagic Design website.
