Recommended Posts

Thank you to everyone who has reported issues with the first beta for DaVinci Resolve 16 and Fusion 16. A special thank you those users who have selected to "Automatically send problem reports" (you can find that in DaVinci Resolve, Preferences, System, General) as these reports with the repo notes have helped reproduce a number of issues which we have addressed.

We are pleased to announce DaVinci Resolve 16 Studio beta 2 and Fusion 16 Studio beta 2 is now available. For Studio users this is a free upgrade from all previous versions. There is also a free DaVinci Resolve 16 beta 2 available and you can find the links to the new betas here.
