    We would like to thank everyone for their support, providing feedback on the beta updates, logs and descriptions of issues. The detailed information continues to assist us to make Resolve better every day.

    We are pleased to announce the release of DaVinci Resolve Studio 17.1 Public Beta 10. This is available at no charge for existing customers who can download from our support page.

    The MacOS installer is a universal binary so is suitable for M1 and Intel based Macs.
    The 17.1 Windows and Linux installer also available for download.

    We look forward to beta feedback on this specific Windows and Linux version.

    Pre-Installation Note
    For those using DaVinci Resolve or DaVinci Resolve Studio on Windows, we strongly recommend uninstalling previous versions prior to installing 17 Public Beta 5 and higher versions. Going forward, all Fairlight, grading and editor keyboard firmware updates will be managed from the DaVinci Control Panels Setup utility.

    Important information regarding database management
    DaVinci Resolve 17.1 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) and then restore that database for the upgrade before upgrading to this release.

    What’s New in DaVinci Resolve 17.1 Beta 10
    Support for hardware accelerated encoding and decoding of H.265 10-bit 4:2:2 and 4:4:4 formats on supported Intel platforms.
    Support for decoding and encoding Grass Valley formats on Apple Silicon.
    Addressed multiple issues with importing interlaced AAF and XML timelines.
    Addressed an issue where cleaning up the node graph would work inconsistently.
    General performance and stability improvements

    I had an issue of my old projects playing back slowly on the Edit page, after upgrading my database in any DR version after 16.2.5, whether 16.x or 17.x.
    So I would just keep reverting back to version 16.2.5.

    I finally just started new projects in a new DR17 database and now my Dragon 6K footage plays back smoothly at my usual decode setting (Quarter res. Good).
    So in case anybody else was testing DR17 features on old projects, just start a new project.

    My system is old though, and can't even run Fusion smoothly with Dragon 6K 6:1 footage: i7-3930K, 32 GB RAM, 1x GTX770 4GB.

    Peter, can you clarify for those of us that are on non M1 machines, but have moved on to Big Sur which version you recommend at this point. I had been working with 17.1 Beta but I'd like to move to 17.0 Release unless you think there are reasons not to.
