  1. From knowing other NVE software, I imported my video clips, set up a time line, played back clips, cropped and put them on the time line.

    At some point, Resolve simply quit playing back video from the time line.
    Also, you can’t seem to just click on the time line to move the “now” line to that location to play back from there…

    So I close Resolve and start it again, only to have it complain that “the file is open in Resolve” – so if you tell it to shut down, it doesn’t shut down?

    One clip (on the C:\ drive) had also gone “offline”, after I clicked around in it, to try to find a certain location… Resolve apparently couldn’t handle the rapid inputs and that thread just died.

    Definitely Software that doesn’t like people just jump around and try things… And it doesn’t reset properly when you close and re-open it. That’s on a level of video editing shovelware…

    10 minutes later, I start it again – now the file is available again. Playback from the time line works too! But only for a few seconds, then the damned thing crashes…

    I’m on a very fast gaming rig with SSD, 32GB RAM and a GTX1080TI…
    I somehow think Resolve should run rather comfortably on this. Also, this computer shows no instability with any other software I run, including really resource intensive stuff, like alpha versions of unreleased, unoptimized, graphics intensive games…

  2. I see that DaVinci Resolve FINALLY works on a graphics card other than Nvidia, Intel 3D Graphics, no less!

    Only problem I’m having, on the “Color” window the video is too small. I can resize it by width but not by height. HELP!

    1. there are different ‘viewers’ which will open the video to a full size screen, for example. it’s in the manual

  3. I wanna buy new laptop so please tell me the system requirements for davinci resolve with tight budget.
