DaVinci Resolve 19 Beta 3 Update

The third beta for Davinci Resolve 19 is out, and there’s lots of updates and fixes to get excited about.

New features for controlling Node Stack layers like resetting all layers or toggling on or off individual layers are handy features for having precise control.

For Windows computers, there’s the ability to view HDR directly on your monitor without needing and external feed to a reference monitor.

Official support for the new Micro panel has been added, as well as Replay improvements, better UltraNR performance, music remixer ability for individual tracks, plus plenty of bug fixes.

From BMD:

Today we released public beta 3 of DaVinci Resolve 19 which adds further improvements to the DaVinci public beta including support for viewing content in HDR on the UI when using Windows. This allows you to correctly view high dynamic range images without an external HDR monitor. You also get improved performance and control of the node stack function so that you have the option to quickly reset all layers at once instead of one layer at a time. You can also bypass individual node stack layers, giving you greater control over the layers.

This update also supports improvements when using replay on the Cut page. Now you can double press the camera key to run the selected camera from the in point, giving you faster and more switching control over multiple cameras. Plus, you can convert the previous POI to a marker for later reference, as well as see the distance between the playhead and the POI in the timeline making it easier to judge the replay length available.

There is also added support for the DaVinci Resolve Micro Color Panel, with the ability to see the battery level in the preferences section.

For DaVinci Resolve Studio, this update adds improved quality, speed and performance for UltraNR noise reduction. The music remixer is now available for individual clips as well as all clips in a track giving you greater flexibility. It also improves the ability to preview adaptive audio formats in the media pool, source viewer and audio inspector so you can now play up to 36 channels of audio.
Other improvements include clearer audio in complex nesting timelines so artifacts such as crackles and noises are removed, as well as improved cursor refresh operation while hovering on edits directly under the playhead during editing. Plus to help avoid accidental deletion when resetting or deleting compositions a user notification has been added, as well as general performance and stability improvements.

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.
