Moreover, the update also adds enhanced timecode calculations for AAFs, and better rendering of videos with AAC audio.

Database Management – Upgrade Required
DaVinci Resolve 17.0 and 17.1 require a database upgrade from DaVinci Resolve 16.2.7 and previous versions. Blackmagic Design recommends users back up existing database (both DiskDB and PostgreSQL) and then restore that database for the upgrade before upgrading to this Beta 4 release.
