Upgrading mid-project
on Sep 12, 2012 at 10:36:09 pm

Sorry if this was answered before--I scanned through the threads and did not see.

Have any of you had experience upgrading to Resolve 9 in the middle of a project? I've been holding off because I have a bunch of work left on a film and don't want to risk something going irreparably wrong if I upgrade and the project gets funky for whatever reason. I love 8 anyway, but everyone speaks highly of 9.

Hi Jesse,

Unless you absolutely need any of the new Version 9 features, I strongly urge you to hold off on upgrading.

I am running into some new problems that I did not have with Version 8. Also 9.0 seems a little bit less stable.

I would have stayed with 8, but there was an audio playback bug (with UltraStudio) that would not be fixed in Resolve 8.

I've always found it better to wait till my big projects are done, before I change anything on my currently working system.

Yeah I agree DO NOT do it. I made that mistake but it was not my choice.

I am seeing a bunch of bugs and stability issues on V9 beta and regular V9 release.

Kinda surprised it got released out of beta with these blatant bugs.

Hi Jesse,

I've been using a dual-boot configuration with 8.2.2 on 10.7 and v9 betas on 10.8.

I've opened up the same project in both, and did get different results. Mostly it seemed like the difference was coming from this: I did an XML import in 8.2.2 and certain resizes or opacities or whatever were not being supported. The same project in v9b2 or 3 did support more of the XML features, and therefore different results.

Not the end of the world, but on a certain project could be a huge headache. Especially if you have a lot of manual resizes, etc. And there could be more things like this I haven't encountered.

Generally it is NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER x10^9 a good idea to change horses midstream -- with the one in a billion chance that a point release, not a version release, will cure a bug.

If you were to attempt a version change, I would save every grade in the original version and be prepared to hand copy them back into the migrated project. The grades, individually, are very likely to be valid, but as has been discussed, the actual image adjustments are only a small part of the overall workflow in terms of stages that are likely to be (in engineering terminology) f***d up.
