DaVinci Resolve 17 and 17.1 Public Beta 3 versions have been released. It brings support for scroll in the color page with the Speed Editor and DaVinci Resolve Editing Keyboard and more improvements and bug fixes.
There have already been a couple of updates since the first public beta of DaVinci Resolve 17 came out. Almost two weeks ago, it was the public beta 2 for the Resolve 17 and beta 1 for the 17.1. Blackmagic Design just released public beta 3 with further improvements and bug fixes. Let’s see what the changes are.
DaVinci Resolve 17 and 17.1 Public Beta 3
First, it is important to say that the only difference between Resolve 17 and 17.1 is OS compatibility. DaVinci Resolve 17.1 has been designed to support the new M1 “Apple Silicon” powered Macs. The DaVinci Resolve 17.1 releases are compatible with macOS Big Sur on both platforms but it is initially only available for Mac with Apple M1. For all other platforms, Resolve 17 is the current version.
One of the most notable improvements in the Beta 3 is the support for scroll in the color page with the Speed Editor and DaVinci Resolve editing keyboard. My colleague Florian already mentioned this in his DaVinci Resolve Speed Editor Review – make sure to give it a read if you haven’t already.
