Blackmagic Release DaVinci Resolve 16 Beta 7

There is a new beta 7 version of DaVinci Resolve 16 out there. Blackmagic Design engineers have been at it again addressing issues and improving performance the popular creative software suite that has won the hearts of many creators and post-production experts over the years.

DaVinci Resolve 16 Beta 7 improves playback performance on the edit and cut pages when using DeckLink and UltraStudio capture and playback devices, makes multi-cam angle syncing via audio waveform more reliable and improves the behaviour of grabbing stills and working with colour qualifiers on clips that have OpenFX or ResolveFX.

In addition, in the latest beta version Resolve 16 users will also find new that the new beta version makes needed improvements such as support for decoding embedded AIFF content in AAF timelines, recognizing the correct order of channels in AAC and QuickTime clips, and rendering IMF packages with the correct audio metadata.

As usual, there are improvements in Fusion Studio 16 as well. Fusion 16 Public Beta 7 improves the reliability of paint tool overlays in the viewer and addresses general application stability when opening large projects, previewing wand or range tools with mask inputs, and when changing the histogram type in the colour corrector node.
