Today we announced DaVinci Resolve 17.3.1 update which allows you to combine multiple audio files from the Fairlight page and export them as one interleaved broadcast wave file. This means that you can now choose to combine different audio sources such as a stereo pair and a 5.1 multichannel clip and export them as a single interleaved file. Once transferred to another system, they will import as their original separate file groupings, making for easier workflow collaboration on audio projects.
Additionally, Windows users can now consistently save YouTube and Vimeo sign in credentials making it faster to export directly to these platforms from DaVinci Resolve. This update also adds the ability to simply middle click your tablet’s pen while over a clip in the gallery to copy its grade to the current shot in the viewer, speeding up your color grading workflow.
You’ll also get improved stability when adding stills to the memories section of the gallery meaning you can more confidently and quickly store and retrieve variations of grades you’re working on, as well as improved Apple ProRes 4444 processing on Apple Mac M1 models, giving you a more reliable rendering workflow.
For those using DaVinci Resolve or DaVinci Resolve Studio on Windows, we strongly recommend uninstalling previous versions prior to installing 17.3. 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 17.3.1 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.
There is no database change from 17.x.
