DaVinci Resolve 17.3.1 – Now Available

Blackmagic Design keeps the update train chuggin with another update. DaVinci Resolve 17.3.1 is a small addition to an evergrowing software package, but it brings some welcome fixes that have plagued users. With robust support for editing, color-grading, VFX, and sound, users are finding few reasons to leave the Resolve ecosystem. Let’s see what Grant Petty has in store for us today?

DaVinci Resolve has grown in leaps and bounds ever since it found a new home with Blackmagic. What was once a mind-numbingly expensive piece of hardware/software, can now be had for no more than an entry-level Roomba. Since the DaVinci Resolve 17.3.1 update is fairly short and straight to the point, let’s take a look at how this hearty and inexpensive software suite came to be. If you’re in a rush and just want the update, check after the video.
