How save do you think it is to dive into this one on a new MacPro in regards of Resolve and Blackmagic hardware ?

Running a beta OS with beta Resolve 11 on a production machine....and you're wondering if it's safe....?

I'm assuming you're working on your standup comedy routine here....

I am working on my duty as beta tester which not only includes testing Resolve in a production environment but also testing out flaws and benefits of a new operating system :)
I am sure that the Blackmagic folk or other already run Yosemite betas, but today everyone can get their hands on.
When Mavericks came out it was dreadful and I did the full turn back to Moutain Lion, but the 10.9.4 runs smooth as silk...
So yes, I am willing to sacrifice productivity for some tinkering...

Well, as long as you're in the middle of a big important project, I think it's a fine idea.

My suggestion for the fastest turn around would be to load yosemite on a single hard drive BEFORE you incorporate that drive in a RAID.

I also think Sascha should try it while standing on his head, underneath a ladder, near a leaky nuclear reactor. That'd be interesting.

[Sascha Haber] "Resolve 10.1.4 - Smoke 2015"

I can also guarantee that Smoke won't be certified for Yoesmite until months after it's official release. Autodesk typically waits for 1 dot release (sometimes 2) before certifying it's software as stable on an OS.

But if you're willing to deal with the inevitable downtime, reinstall, plugin failures, and program failures then who are we to argue....?

+1 for this. I laughed out loud...! :-)

I am on 10.10 now and it works just fine...for now.
I think what most users did not got was that mavericks changed the system more than the UI.
This seems the other way around...
Cosmetics , cosmetics, cosmetics...

Playback of my old projects seem unchanged..
miniMonitor works fine...SD and HD

its disables the Wacom Panel on the other hand...so i don't dare to run Smoke and have it change my buttons again.

Yes it does seem to work and mavericks 3rd party drivers work on it too.
It's weird apple says not to discuss even though it's public beta.
Does it seem faster, snappier than mavericks? Very pretty.

I think one of the main reasons why Apple has NDAs--even for public betas--is that they don't want bloggers, etc. to be "reviewing" the betas as if they were the actual, gold-master final product. In the past, Apple has been known to pull features at the last minute that appeared in the beta releases, and the NDA is probably their formal way of managing the expectations of both users and developers.

Unlike other companies, Apple doesn't tend to use the "beta" moniker as a marketing device. Their betas are truly not-ready-for-primetime, and they want real people in real-world testing situations to find bugs, compatibility and usability issues that are generally overlooked in a private beta program.

Thank God for people like Sascha, who are willing to take the beta-bullet for all the working colorists in our community :)

Well I won't be doing any jobs on it, just tinkering and testing, but really wish I had access to a 290x to test. David Pirinelli? Anyone? Beuhler?

I Installed Yosemite Public Beta 10.10 (14A299l).
even I Installed Nvidia CUDA Driver 6.0.51.
DaVinci Resolve did not find out CUDA driver.
Migration existing Database working well.

When I try to existing Project, DaVinci Resolve just crashed.
Beta is just Beta, Yea.

:D

Yosemite has done away with the startupitems folder and hence the CUDA item will not intiate properly. I have the same problem as you with Resolve. I'm currently looking for a workaround rather than regressing to Mavericks. Please let me know if you find one.
