DaVinci Resolve 19 Beta 2 Update

The first update to the DaVinci Resolve 19 Public Beta just landed.

It’s not just bug fixes, there’s some new features too!

One I like is the handy ability to switch the inspector between clip and track. Media management feature now has the ability to trim new audio formats. You can apply stills to active node stack layers.

There’s more that you can read about below too.

And yes, lots of bugs fixed.

If you’re using the beta and want to help make it more stable, go to Menu > DaVinci Resolve > Preferences > System > General > Select “Send Report When Application Quits Unexpectedly”.

From Blackmagic Design:

Today we released public beta 2 of DaVinci Resolve 19 which adds improvements and bug fixes for the DaVinci public beta including the ability to wipe or apply grades to clips or active node stack layers. This allows you to wipe between a still in the gallery and a timeline item to compare grades and also lets you choose between applying the grade to an individual layer or to the entire clip.

This update also adds support for the safe area overlay to be used in the edit timeline viewer as well as the ability to have the overlay display during playback in either the cut or edit viewer. That allows you to more easily review and position elements such as logos and titles so that they are always displayed without being cropped.

When using media management tools, you now have the ability to trim audio in your MOV and MP4 video files. This means you can save space by trimming unneeded flac or mp3 audio.

In addition, this update restores the ability to choose whether to update your DaVinci Resolve projects to the latest version when opening them. Now when you open an older project you will be prompted to back up the project before updating it to the latest version of the software.

This update also includes a number of bug fixes from the public beta, including addressing an issue where you couldn’t copy and paste transitions on the edit timeline, allowing compositions with alpha layers to be used on top of other clips, reinstating middle click functionality to apply compositions to Fusion clips and restoring sync functionality to the dialogue separator tool.

For details, downloads, and update instructions, visit the Blackmagic Design Support Page.

Back up your projects and database before upgrading! Individual projects created or opened in 19.0 will no longer be accessible in 18.6.6.

Remember that this is still in beta, so be careful of using it on important projects.
