Well, that's what I did as well. It's a no-brainer if you look at the price. And it makes a lot of stuff easier.

Btw off-topic. Are you from a british part of Colombia or are you from the province British Columbia in Canada? Just had to ask because your location confused me a bit :)

Just installed successfully on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.

Attempting to view a Background node in the Fusion tab was crashing the application until I added a symbolic link from /usr/lib64 to /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu using the following command in Terminal:

ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu /usr/lib64

The instructions for the above I found outlined in another thread on this forum that I cannot post without the appropriate permissions.

Do you still need a dongle for the studio version? It's the only thing that have stopped me from buying the past couple of years.

I finished a project today but had some problems with the audio of the rendered file. I rendered it out with these settings:
Format: QuickTime
Codec: DNxHD
Type: 1080p 145/120/115 8-bit
☑ Network Optimized
Frame rate: 25

Audio
Codec: Linear PCM
Bit Depth: 16
Output Track 1: Main 1 (Stereo)

When I right click the file and go to Properties > Video, it says under Audio:
Codec: N/A
Channels: 0 Channels
Sample rate: 0Hz
Bitrate: N/A

When I play the file in mpv, there's no audio. When I play it in vlc there's audio, but it's not very consistent, like it sounds like it's struggling with the playback of the audio.

Can it be that the project has both flac and wav in it? I'm wondering this because when I tried to render out just the first few seconds which only has the flac audio, it worked fine.

I guess I'll test more tomorrow unless someone knows what the issue is.

I ended up exporting the project and importing it on my old windows laptop so I could render it out from there, but I've planned to sell that machine a in a few weeks. It's time to go Linux 100%!

No dongle required for the Studio version on Linux. You can use a license key, but it requires Internet access.

I don’t have an Advanced Panel, but I think the Advanced Panel dongle is still what gets you ProRes rendering on Linux.

I was actually just wondering the same thing as I was going through the exercises that are in "The Definitive Guide to Davinci Resolve" and I just came to the section about recording a V.O in Fairlight.

Couldn't get it to recognise my Blue Snowball. Like you, just a pair of Alsa inputs that did nothing.

I'd be interested in knowing an answer, but honestly it's not a deal breaker for me. Audio out works fine, and I rarely would have any need for recording at my desk. All my recording is through a Tascam or through OBS. Other than this practice exercise in the book, I can't think of a use-case where I would ever need to directly record into Resolve.

But I'd still like to know the answer.

But the studio version support mp4, right?
Where's the best place to buy the studio version?

Studio does support MP4, but does not support AAC audio that may be found in such files. In the Support section of the site, if you go to the Resolve/Fusion portion there will be a supported codecs PDF for Resolve 15. Everything in there is what Studio supports.

For purchasing, I used Motion Media for my Fusion dongle, and had a pretty good experience. I believe they also sell Resolve.

Cheers,

Re: DaVinci Resolve on Linux - Install issues

PostFri Dec 07, 2018 2:41 am

So I finally built a new machine :D
Went on to install Ubuntu 18.10 then ROCm and then DaVinci Resolve Lite. Amazingly everything just seemed to work!
This is the first time it actually passed the splash screen for me! I tested on 18.04 and 18.10 with AMDGPU-PRO and then repeated installations but used ROCm. It just works, except when it comes to exporting.

I did a limited qa testing since this is my first time actually getting Resolve to run and currently the only problem seems to be a pretty big one. I cannot export to any format except MPEG4 and this is important since I'm looking to buy BMPCC4K.

Naturally, I used the BMPCC4K sample footage "Close Up Night" to test exporting with and without any editing.

For exporting as MPEG4 it works beautifully but as soon as I try DNxHD, DNxHR or any other format it freezes as soon as I click start render and then after follows up with a crash. Sometimes it crashes right away and sometimes after a minute or so.

So guys, can anyone help me out at least by telling me what to test for and how to test it? Also is this an expected behavior on Linux and we're just stuck to only exporting to MPEG4?

P.S. if anyone works with Canon 77D, GH5 or Inspire 1 footage please share your ffmpeg scripts and describe me/us your workflow. I don't have it in me to spend yet another night finding and exploring all solutions for that to end up with a wrong one in the end :lol: . It would be such a help to at least get me started faster.

Hi Dwaine
Thank you for official clarification

I spent some time error checking my Threadripper/Linux install before I found info about this on the Forum
It worked on a Xeon/Linux with same install, your software has DNx as default!!!

Would save us all a lot of time, as another thread said, if you explained at least in the docs for Linux install what you know won't work on in this case AMD HW!
---
So my question of course is, when will 'currently' end and DNx will work on Threadripper? :)

It would be even better if BMD would come out and say something like "This is a bug, we intend to remedy at some time in the future." or "We don't intend to support this with this OS on that HW.". So people don't spend thousands on HW that won't work.

Yes we do use CentOS 7.

If DNx works on AMD/RHEL, it's likely some hardcoded path.

If so, the official answer is likely to be, "use CentOS."

Hey there, yesterday i've got an RX570 to "resolve" driver issues with Nvidia.
Since then i am unable to start Resolve on Linux anymore.
I tried to cleanup the old Nvidia stuff and just added what's needed for AMD (i hope).
At least everything i tried except Resolve is running wonderful.

For OpenCL i installed opencl-amd as i did not try amdgpu-pro yet.
OpenCL userspace driver as provided in the amdgpu-pro driver stack. This package is intended to work along with the free amdgpu stack.

Well, exchanging a Nvidia card with AMD is really not the best idea. AMD just sucks in Linux - at least that's what I learned (the hard way). I also use a GTX1060 and it works perfectly with Resolve. Just install the right driver and everything works fine. At least in LinuxMint.

I tried AMD in the past but always had problems due to bad driver software. If I had to choose between AMD and Nvidia I would always prefer Nvidia. I'd recommend you to try again with your Nvidia card and CUDA.

My issues (on Linux) did not (only) affect Resolve (except for example whole displayserver freezes when i was attempting to edit videos, so i booted Windows to be safe, i got flickering colors all over the place and stripes in certain colors too, it was terrible, and yes, it may have something to do with the nvidia driver plus the display i use.
I am not sure what you mean with the right driver, i am only aware of nvidia or nvidia-dkms i could use... however, everything except Resolve now works wonderful with the AMD card ... would be nice to get the Resolve issue resolved without keeping the Nvidia card.

...by the way this card even worked out of the box (i guess due this) without any additional driver, including gaming, where the card performed better than on Windows - i only installed the (free) amdgpu driver in the hope to get Resolve running - try that with nvidia...

Hi Milan

I am using the graphics-driver PPA where I can get the latest drivers (see my signature). Never ever had any problems with it.

Yes, because of the Open-Source driver. Which is ok but not enough for Resolve and other GPU-heavy software.

i only installed the (free) amdgpu driver in the hope to get Resolve running - try that with nvidia...

I don't have to - thanks to the PPA installing the latest drivers was a matter of a mouse click. There is also the free noveau driver for Nvidia cards but that one is even worse than AMD.

Anyway, what I learned over the last few years is that AMD (CPU and GPU) is the wrong choice if it comes to video editing, compositing and other heavy GPU usage. It might work but there will always be a few bumps on the way as you can read in various threads here on the forum.

Regarding your problem - it seems you must use the proprietary AMD driver to use OpenCL. Maybe another AMD user could give you his system details.

Edit:
I would love to built myself a nice Threadripper system, but it seems there are some problems with delivery codecs which are not supported by AMD hardware. Also I need CUDA, so Nvidia is my only choice here.

I know this doesn't belong here but just as a heads up to BMD, Adobe is taking a serious look into porting Premiere Pro to Linux and not just limited CentOS either.

To the users, lets hope this means BMD starts improving Resolve for Linux rapidly.

Yes, they are reaching out to popular Linux advocates, youtubers and journalists as they are reevaluating a potential porting effort in light of the recent events.

This was all put into motion when a lot of us were made aware that Adobe actually has a uservoice page where they take in user feedback, feature requests, bug reports etc. and community can voice their opinion and vote about it. Suffice to say, take a look for yourself at what happened next:
https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911233-premiere-pro

I think this is a big blow to BMD as they neglected general linux users and videographers and instead focused only in supporting enterprise. This lead to users jumping for the opportunity to seek help with Adobe.
Lets hope this news can revive BMD Linux efforts. I hope they can see from the Adobe feedback that there are a lot of videographers using Linux and willing to spend their money for it but they cannot rely on a software that is really hit or miss if it's gonna work or not for their work.

Also, one question. I'm about to preorder BMPCC4K, does the license for Resolve that comes with it support Linux version too or it's just Windows/MacOS license?

I am still not convinced Adobe will port anything to Linux, I just heard this too often.

And even if, and that's a big if, then they will be years behind BMD. Not to mention all the legal implications and not to forget the interconections between the different Adobe apps and file formats. I guess it would take Adobe years to port their software to Linux. And are people willing to pay a subscription? I don't think so.

I myself have found what I need in Resolve and fully concentrate on learning it and support BMD in developing their software further.

Don't get me wrong - it would be absolutely fantastic if Adobe software would be available as native Linux ports and it would definately give the Linux community a big boost in acceptance.

But it's not for me - I never was and I never will be a big fan of Adobe software.

Maybe I’m wrong about this, but my understanding is that Resolve is actually native to RHEL/CentOS, and originally it was used in the turnkey systems from da Vinci Systems, before the BMD acquisition.

When BMD acquired it, the business decision was to port the software to Mac and Windows as well, and let users put it on their own hardware, growing its popularity on those OSs that are easier to manage, out of the box.

The build for CentOS is still developed, but it’s geared toward those advanced users who want the stability of the OS, without licensing costs, and with the ability to tweak it however they want. It also supports the most powerful configurations, and can take advantage of the most GPUs, up to eight in a single workstation.

So, CentOS is not provided merely as an additional benefit to a few fringe Linux users. It’s meant to be the go-to choice for the largest enterprise post-production facilities.

I have a question guys.. has anyne managed to get an audio control surface to work with Resolve in Linux?

I know that, when it comes to grading, Resolve on Linux only works with the BMD panels, but I thought audio control surfaces are a different story.

I have the Behringer X Touch which is a USB class-compliant device. It is detected properly on the system, and I managed to use with Ardour and other audio programs on Linux, but I had no luck with Resolve. It doesn't detect it at all. And I am sure it works with Resolve because I tested it with the Windows version.

So, i use Davinci Resolve on my windows 10 laptop with intel HD 620, but yesterday i decided to install CentOS and Resolve alongside with it. However after speding about 10 hours (last time i used linux was about 7 years ago) and, i think? installing everything i needed, Davinci Resolve splash screen appeared only once and every time afterwards it just doesn`t start. I hear yours :'MD doesn`t support that hardware', but really? Intel advertised their QuickSync technology with Resolve. And what`s even worse - i installed free version of Fusion and it works like a charm compared to Windows and even h264 files work.
