DaVinci Resolve 17.0 Beta 7

About DaVinci Resolve 17.0
The free DaVinci Resolve 17 includes all of the same high quality processing as DaVinci Resolve 17 Studio and can handle unlimited resolution media files. However it does limit project mastering and output to Ultra HD resolutions or lower. DaVinci Resolve 17 only supports a single processing GPU on Windows and Linux and 2 GPUs on the latest Mac Pro.

If you need features such as support for multiple GPUs, 4K output, motion blur effects, temporal and spatial noise reduction, de-interlacing, HDR tools, camera tracker, multiple Resolve FX, 3D stereoscopic tools, remote rendering, an external database server and collaboration tools that let multiple users work on the same project at the same time, please upgrade to DaVinci Resolve 17 Studio.

We hope you do decide to upgrade as your facility grows and you do more advanced work!

Important information regarding database management
DaVinci Resolve 17.0 requires a database upgrade from DaVinci Resolve 16.2.7 and previous versions. We strongly recommend that you back up your existing database (both DiskDB and PostgreSQL) before performing an upgrade.

I can't understand the negative comment, It works great for me! True I am NOT a beginner, in fact as a retired electronics engineer I have been around Video Editors since they we nothing more than 2 beta cam players and a beta cam recorder doing cut edits with 5 second pre-roll just to get the tapes in sync. Since I retired about 15 years ago I have continued to use NLE's as a hobby and am familiar with most common versions, except Adobe's PP, I just never liked it but that's just my personal taste. So far, and I've been using DaVinci Resolve since Ver.14, I find it amazing.

It can be intimidating for a beginner and there are so many hidden features that I am sure even experts get confused sometimes. I have had a few crashes, but upon investigation it is usually related to hardware rather than the software itself. One common issue is using an external SSD as the scratch disk, if it does not respond instantaneously it can cause a crash.

I currently use a 2017 iMac 3.4 GHz i5 with a 1TB Fusion drive and 48Gb RAM which (apart from the RAM) is nothing special. I edit mostly 4K footage and downsample to 1080p for output. If I include and still images in a project then I may have LR and PS open as well and I still enjoy smooth playback.

As to Value for Money... well, if you don't need the additional effects and codec's of the Studio version you can't get much cheaper than FREE!

I have no idea why it's getting so much hate on here vs everywhere else online. I can't tell if they're uneducated or trolls

DR16 has been so smooth vs Premiere Pro. I've completed documentaries, youtube videos and music videos without any issues. It's NLE abilities are great now, and I'm able to edit way faster in this vs everything else I've tried (Hitfilm, FCPX and PP - which l still own/pay for monthly but don't use since going all in on DR)

The fact that they update so often, is remarkable (heck even yesterday they just dropped ANOTHER update). Sure there is bug reports, every piece of software has them, and there's also the fact that a lot of people don't update their graphic drivers, or even provide good logs. I've personally had a 95% flawless experience with all the tools inside the app, although I'm still not a huge fan of Fusion vs After Effects.

I bought the studio version, because I truly see the value in BlackMagic. The free version is fantastic too, but I don't pick software based on price, I pick it based on features, updates, stability, ease of use and the team behind it - all of which are top notch from Black Magic.

As for people saying the support is bad. That's incorrect. I had a bug which alerted the team, who reached out to be personally by email and then released a fix. I've also had amazing and detailed responses from their email team too, way more detailed and helpful vs other NLEs.

I was a Premiere pro user for several years. I didn't move without a lot of thoughts, no one wants to switch for the sake of it. I did however make the best decision in the end by switching to DR.
