  1. Resolve Studio is not picking up my headphones when I plug them in. (all my other software does.) If I exit Resolve and reopen all is well. Early versions of 17 acted this way, then it was fixed but came back with 18. Am up to 18.1.1 now, still has this little bug. This is on Windows/AMD, realtek audio on a b570 MoBo (I think.) Wondering if others are experiencing this small issue and whether a fix is on the horizon.

  2. I’m having real issues with 18.1.1 on my Macbook Pro M1 Max. 18.1 was working perfectly, but now ripple delete and start to playhead functions aren’t working at all. I can’t even remove a space between clips if I manually delete a section. So frustrating!

  3. Updated this morning on the 18.1.1. Da Vinci is way slower all of the sudden, playback became awfully slow and laggy (especially in fusion), rendering is two/three times longer than yesterday for the same project. my workflow has turned from great to terrible. it looks like da vinci resolve studio is not using fully my CPU/GPU.

    not happy at all with this update.

    (Mac OS 13.0.1, M1 Max, 32gb)

      • Sorry for you mate, but kind of happy to see I am not the only one experiencing this type of issues with the update.

        Doing some tracking work today in fusion. What was taking 20sec before the update now takes 5minutes. That’s just insane. I can’t work like this.

        Everything I describe happens on projects started before the update, maybe with new project it won’t be the same. No idea. Very annoying though. Hopefully they can fix this very soon.
