Well that was fast! The 6th beta version of Resolve 18 was just released.
This one adds the latest BRAW update, support for the new Arri Alexa 35, and improvements in camera gyro stabilization that was added in beta 5.
Plus a whole bunch of bug fixes!
Today we released DaVinci Resolve Public Beta 6 which adds support for Blackmagic RAW 2.6 as well as footage from the ARRI Alexa 35 camera.
This update also improves your workflow with camera gyro stabilized clips, allowing you to change the strength of the stabilization without the clip needing to be reanalyzed. Aliasing behavior has also been improved meaning sharp edges will appear cleaner on your camera gyro stabilized clips.
In addition, DaVinci Resolve Public Beta 6 addresses an issue reading source files when working with fully cached clips meaning they will more reliably appear online during playback. For audio, when using elastic wave retiming on small audio clips, the retiming will be more accurately reflected on the waveform making it faster and easier for you to retime voiceover or sound effects to match the picture.
Remember to back up before updating!
And be sure to submit feedback and bug reports via the public beta feedback forum on the Official Blackmagic Design website.
