Blackmagic Design just released a new version of DaVinci Resolve 17.3.2. The new update includes support for Blackmagic RAW SDK 2.2, fixes numerous bugs and instability issues, and brings general performance and stability improvements.
Once again Blackmagic Design treats us with another new sub-version of the DaVinci Resolve 17. The new update 17.3.2 finally brings native support for ProRes RAW files. Uh, not really, unfortunately. That was just me dreaming 🙂 Anyway, the new update does bring a few useful improvements and bug fixes, so let’s take a look at what is new.
DaVinci Resolve 17.3.2
The new version 17.3.2 basically brings one new feature and that is the support for Blackmagic RAW SDK 2.2. Released today as well, the latest version of Blackmagic RAW SDK brings support for Blackmagic RAW clips captured by Blackmagic Video Assist with the following cameras: FUJIFILM GFX100 and GFX100S, Panasonic LUMIX GH5S, BS1H, and BGH1. The Blackmagic RAW SDK 2.2 also brings performance and stability improvements for the Blackmagic RAW Adobe Premiere Pro plugin.
Other than that, the new Resolve 17.3.2 also brings improvements and bug fixes. Here is the full list:
- Addressed instability issues when using the color warper.
- Addressed incorrect HDR highlight when using DaVinci Wide Gamut.
- Addressed a naming issue for recorded clips in the Fairlight timeline.
- Addressed incorrect reloading of cached audio effects on linked tracks.

- Addressed an issue with uploads for renders on Apple Silicon systems.
- Addressed an issue with the classic stabilizer on Apple Silicon systems.
- Addressed an issue with LUT generation on Apple Silicon systems.

- Addressed an issue with importing malformed CLF LUTs.
- General performance and stability improvements.
Price and availability
As always, the latest version of DaVinci Resolve is available now as a free download from the Blackmagic Support Center. The full Studio license of DaVinci Resolve 17.3.2 is also available on the same page, but an activation code has to be purchased in order to launch it. The full license for two computers currently costs $295, but with the purchase you also get a free Blackmagic Speed Editor (check our review here). The license also comes with all new Blackmagic Design cameras.
For those using DaVinci Resolve or DaVinci Resolve Studio on Windows, Blackmagic Design strongly recommends uninstalling previous versions prior to installing 17 Public Beta 5 and higher versions. Going forward, all Fairlight, grading, and editor keyboard firmware updates will be managed from the DaVinci Control Panels Setup utility.
When it comes to database, DaVinci Resolve 17.3.2 requires a database upgrade from Resolve 16.2.7 and previous versions. It is strongly recommended that you back up your existing database (both DiskDB and PostgreSQL) and then restore it for the upgrade before upgrading to this release. There is no database change from 17.0.
