Resolve 15 download

PostThu Jan 23, 2020 10:06 am

Hi, I have downloaded and installed Resolve 16 and I can create and edit videos using the editing tools. However, when I try to do anything in Fusion the software hangs. Just adding a text control after starting fusion hangs.

Is there anywhere where I can safely download Davinci Resolve 15 and then try that?

Many thanks,
M.

Grrr - Why did I not think of looking there. Thank you, downloading the file now.

I just hope that it resolves my problem.

For feedback and anyone following or finding this thread, dropping back to version 15 made no difference and Fusion still hangs. Either it is broken in the free version of Resolve, or it does not like my machine (I suspect the latter). Next step will be to try it on one of my other (older) machines.

What is your machine spec? Fusion starts sucking memory like nobody's business so if you've got less than 16GB (preferably 32GB ) of RAM then you will be more inclined to see issues.

BTW: Fusion on DR15 is even less stable than fusion on DR16. If you want more reliable Fusion, use stand-alone Fusion 9 (free) and VFX-connect from DR.

I have an HP machine running Windows 10 Pro and 16Gb RAM. I tried Resolve on my lower spec Surface last night and it all ran fine, so there is something on this machine that Resolve does not like.

Full machine spec:
HP Spectre x360
Intel Core i7-6560U CPU @ 2.20GHz
16.0 GB RAM
Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
Intel Iris Graphics with 7.9 GB memory

With specs like that, I would have hoped that Resolve would be fine. Normal editing is fine, it is just Fusion that hangs 'all' of the time and within a minute of running it up.

It would be very interesting to know what machines other people are running version 16 on.

See my signature.
After upgrading my RAM from 16GB to 32GB Fusion is much more stable.
