Blackmagic Design just released DaVinci Resolve 16.3 Beta 3 for those who own or are currently using the URSA Mini Pro 12K. In addition, this release includes support for Blackmagic RAW 2.0 Beta 3 which now supports MacOS, Windows and Linux.

And speaking of the 12K URSA camera, BMD also recently released a firmware update for it increasing the slow-motion frame rates.

Those working with URSA Mini Pro 12K files are required to use Resolve 16.3 Beta 3, as the regular Resolve 16 version will not import the files. 

You can play with some excellent 12K footage courtesy of DP John Brawley here.
