Starting from macOS Sierra 10.12, PostgreSQL version 8.4 is no longer supported. If you intend to upgrade to the latest OS from one prior to macOS Sierra 10.12, you will need to upgrade your PostgreSQL database server to version 9.5.4 prior to upgrading macOS. Once your PostgreSQL installation has been upgraded and your data has been ported, you can then proceed with your macOS upgrade. We have provided apps to simplify upgrading your PostgreSQL version on your Mac. The apps along with instructions can be found in the /Library/Application Support/Blackmagic Design/DaVinci Resolve/Upgrade PostgreSQL folder. Starting from DaVinci Resolve 12.5.3, new installations will include PostgreSQL version 9.5.4. If you are installing DaVinci Resolve for the first time and already have macOS Sierra 10.12 or newer OS you only need to install v15b3 and not worry about the database update.

    DaVinci Resolve 15 beta 2 is now available

    Hi guys, we really appreciate everyone thats uses our betas on real jobs. We do understand the inherent risks taken but frankly v15 is already in much better shape than our v14beta1. We have a comprehensive QA system here but nothing beats real world use with the details bug reports it can bring. With the million variations in workflow and user configs the beta testers and bug/crash log reporters will help immensely for a prompt stable release. thanks guys

    Blackmagic Advanced Panel - price

    This doesn’t look correct. Tax inc price (in which country?) too low. Please refer to the BMD authorized distribution network on the BMD web site.
