    Upgrading your PostgreSQL database server on Mac

    Until DaVinci Resolve 12.5.2, the Mac installer used to ship with PostgreSQL version 8.4.2. Starting from macOS Sierra 10.12, PostgreSQL version 8.4 is no longer supported. If you intend to upgrade to the latest OS, you will need to upgrade your PostgreSQL database server to version 9.5.4 prior to upgrading macOS. Once your PostgreSQL installation has been upgraded and your data has been ported, you can then proceed with your macOS upgrade.
    We have provided apps to simplify upgrading your PostgreSQL version on your Mac.The apps along with instructions can be found in the:
    /Library/Application Support/Blackmagic Design/DaVinci Resolve/Upgrade PostgreSQL
    folder. Starting from DaVinci Resolve 12.5.3, new installations will include PostgreSQL version 9.5.4.

    Installing DaVinci Resolve Software on Mac

    Double-click the Resolve Installer icon, follow the onscreen instructions and then restartthe computer after installation.

    Installing DaVinci Resolve Software on Windows

    Double-click the Resolve Installer icon, follow the onscreen instructions and then restart the computer after installation.

    Installing DaVinci Resolve Software on Linux

    Tobi,

    I'm not too familiar with OSX installation of Davinci Resolve, best practice would be only to install one but double check me on that.

    Ok thx,

    But also not quite sure if we can go back to an older version, I think the latest version always updates the database for all old projects......

    Anyway how are we doing on a proper RED IPP2 integration........

    I see All of this so far.

    1) a "Color Space" and "Gamma Curve" option in the "node" dropdown menu.











    2) An "OFX" for "Gamut Mapping" with a selection for "Redlog3G10"






    3) No new "Color Science" setting in the "Color Management" Tab.






    4) Nothing new in the "Davinci YRGB Color Managed" just the same as always.







    5) No New "Camera Raw" settings, but under "Color Science", "Version 3" is gone "IPP2" is there now.






    6) And the updated manual is a little skimpy on any "IPP2" workflow material.
