Same problem here. :face_with_raised_eyebrow:
Upgrade to version 17 (b0, b1, b2, b3) of davinci resolve and Boris directly broke, it is unusable

It’s a shame that no one from Boris ever actually reads these forums . . .

Supposed to be a very upstanding company that supposedly listens to their users.

Oh well…

We’ve got a maintenance release coming that fixes the Resolve problem. Will be released next week at the latest.

@ drabbracadabbra, you are sooooooo wrong! A great company!

No, I’m not.

Because it’s always the same thing. Crickets and tumbleweeds…

Which is why I virtually never post on forums because issues like this always go unattended with no response from anyone at the company.

There’s no reason that at least one person could have at least acknowleged this post.

Every plugin company has had access to Resolve 17 beta for months. No excuse.

fwiw, after an update from Resolve 16.2 to 17b3 just now, the latest Sapphire is working fine for me.

Naturally Resolve immediately notified me that b4 is ready so I’m going to do that and report back.
