Important information regarding dual-server configurations on Linux
Starting from DaVinci Resolve 14 beta 7 the dual-server configurations are no longer supported. Please ensure that your system has been re-configured appropriately prior to upgrading to this version.
The legacy “Configure DaVinci Resolve” application will no longer be supported. DaVinci Resolve Preferences can now be accessed from the DaVinci Resolve application menu similar to Mac and Windows.
Important information regarding Preferences and Project Settings
Starting from DaVinci Resolve 14 beta 7 the Preferences and Project Settings have been reorganized into Project Settings, System Preferences and User Preferences. Settings such as keyboard shortcuts and panel sensitivity controls are now stored locally on the machine instead of with the project.
These settings (along with others) can now be found under the User tab in Preferences.
There is also a new user guide available with this beta update.
Be sure to save your Resolve Keyboard Mapping shortcuts prior to installation, export them to a text file, and then import them once you have 14b7 up and running.
Be warned that because b7 has moved some of the Project Settings to Preferences, you will need to redo your Auto Save, Live Save, and Panel Settings from scratch. This is mentioned in the ReadMe but is not yet in the August 2017 manual.
