    Hi all. I have quiet period and it sounds like 14 is stable enough to try.

    Can I go back to 12.5 if there are issues on my machine, or will this cause issues with library? I imagine I could back up the library and keep this for 12 if needs be?

    Thanks

    You can uninstall and go back to 12.5 and your disk databases will still be there. Back them up first as a safety measure always before uninstalling or updating though. SQL databases are a different story if you updated them and didn't back them up.

    I went back after doing one new project in 14 beta5. I never updated my other projects and they were fine under 12.5.x. And I can't access that one new project of course until I move to the release version of Resolve 14.

    Please make a new database for v14, or backup your current database if you see the need to go back to 12.5. When you install v14, you will be prompted for a database upgrade, both for Disk DB and Postgres DB.

    I did backups of my current projects before trying Resolve 14 and only opened a new project in 14 beta.
