Correct. You need the Advanced Panel license for ProRes renders on Linux.

The shell script they provide is already independent of any linux distribution, no need of an appimage.

no -- i don't agree. AppImage ar much more user friendly, but the a quite huge and do have some perfomance drawbacks as well. but the are indeed a very nice way to test new software.

if BMD would use any of the common linux software package formats, you could translate it to an AppImage with minimal efforts, but in the case of a custom install-script a lot of manual intervention and modifications are necessary.

What about a gui installer like fusion, with an option to disable panel manager daemon, most lite users dont need that running.

In my understanding it first has to load all the necessary libraries, which are packed into the appimage. That makes the file little bit bigger, and it starts a little bit slower, but once it's loaded into ram, everything runs smoothly. Do you have experienced performance differences between distribution compiled programms and their equivalent appimages?

GUIs look more usere friendly and many customers may prefer it over simple command line scripts, but from a technical point of view they are quite the same. the real issue is more related to the fact, that it is very hard to control their behavior and compatibility from outside, prevent overwriting of existing files and guarantee a clean uninstall by system means. typical linux distribution specific packages, isolated file hierarchy oriented approaches and bundling as one sole executable, like in the case of AppImage, are much more easier to maintain in this respect.

but in most cases (fusion, nuke, etc.) a simple checkinstall command is enough, to generate distribution specific package during the installation process instead of cluttering your machine in an uncontrollable way. in the case of resolve, this doesn't work sufficient right now, because there are so much additional fixes necessary.

Hi everyone,

Resolve 12.5.5 (Linux) Audio is visible, but not audible

I installed the Resolve Studio 12.5.5.026 on my Dell Precision 7910 (w. nVidia Quatro M6000 GPU)
I created a triple-boot to test: windows 10, centos 7.3 (clean install) and linux mint 18.1 (clean install) - here are my findings using identical hardware. I had no issues with CUDA or nVidia GPU driver installation.

1. Windows v10 - perfect no issues at all (albeit NOT the topic of this forum, this is my hardware reference)
2. Linux - audio levels responsive (in Audio and Master mixers), but not audible in playback.

I also tested audio only media (WAV, MP3) and various video+audio assets (AVI, MOV, MXF, MP4). Same symptom for Centos 7.3 and Linux mint ... no audio :(

I checked the various preferences, and settings as mentioned in this thread, and I can safely confirm this is not a linux OS specific issue, in my case, it affects both Linux installs Centos & Mint.

However ... Resolve does render the audio correctly. I checked with VLC and it all works perfectly :(

Has anyone found a work around for this issue?

Blackmagic design ... thank you so much for the linux version of Resolve, this bug is the only thing stopping me from moving to a 100% pure linux post-production workflow. I can wait to see it resolved.

Hi Bruce,

The simple work around is to use one of our I/O devices for audio support.

You could use something as simple as our $145 DeckLink Mini Monitor card, if embedded SDI or HDMI audio would work for you.

If so, it would make it possible to use a Linux laptop on set.

Resolve 12.5.5 working on Centos 7.3. 3DLUTs work, but not DCTLs. Frédéric Devernay plugins work as expected, but my plugins only register as a single entry (no matter how many in the directory) and cause the native ResolveOFX to disappear. No plugin icon either.

This is an example Makefile I used:

Code: Select all
CUDAPATH = /usr/local/cuda
NVCC = ${CUDAPATH}/bin/nvcc
CXXFLAGS = -I../OpenFX-1.3/include -I../Support/include -I/usr/local/cuda/include -fPIC
OPTIMIZER = -g

MatrixPlugin.ofx: MatrixPlugin.o CudaKernel.o OpenCLKernel.o ofxsCore.o ofxsImageEffect.o ofxsInteract.o ofxsLog.o ofxsMultiThread.o ofxsParams.o ofxsProperty.o ofxsPropertyValidation.o

cp OpenFX.Yo.Matrix.png MatrixPlugin.ofx.bundle/Contents/Resources/
rm *.o *.ofx

CudaKernel.o: CudaKernel.cu

%.o: ../Support/Library/%.cpp

This link provides access to already compiled plugins of both my own and those of Frédéric Devernay.

Hi

I downloaded DaVinci Resolve 12.5.5 for linux (Ubuntu 16.04) and when it didn't immediately install from clicking on the .sh file (I tried and failed)

I used this video to help me install:



It worked until after the introductory tour, but when I clicked on 'Get started' the entire window disappeared.

I tried clicking on the DaVinci icon in the side bar, it flashes but then nothing happens and it disappears.

I have deleted the .sh and readMe files, redownloaded, followed the video instructions again, and it still doesn't work...

Reading forum posts, I see others have issues with crashes, but I can't get into the program at all to provide an activity log.

Help! (I'm an 11 year old kid with a mom who knows just enough about computers to guess that I've probably messed up my boot file or registry by the failed/messy installations and uninstallations...

.... but I also built my own computer - so I'm not an idiot!!!)

I have a Intel Core I7-6700K CPU @ 4.00 GHz x 8 and a Intel HD Graphics 530 SkyLake GT2 graphics card.

Easy peasy, since you have made it till the getting started screen, you have installed it correctly but you dont have a gpu(nvidia/amd) good enough to run davinci resolve.

And from your age I am assuming you need a video editor to learn video editing? Isn't it? If that so try something simpler like kdenlive/openshot, davinci is not the right tool for learning video editing and that too in linux, where you need a bmd io card for getting sound output and no support for h264 for the lite version.

Thanks - I will try kdenlive. Openshot is too basic for what I need.

I already use Blender and I prefer to learn the basics in a challenging system with room for growth.

everything works fine,
I've just received the new mini panel,
When I plug it on usb resolve doesn't detect it (Mini Panel works on mac)
if I try to lan mode, resolve detect the panel still I guess it's not supported yet.
if I run lsusb from terminal, I can tell centos detects the panel,

Hey Dwaine, not sure buying additional hardware is addressing the actual problem. It does not explain why the audio works on Windows, without the DeckLink card? Yet on the same identical machine, running Linux, it does not work? The OS has perfect working audio, it's Resolve 12.5.5 that does not.

Can BlackMagic Design confirm that this as a known issue? (ie. are you guys working of a fix for this particular Linux bug)?

Is there anything that we (the Linux users) can do, or provide, that will help the BM engineers replicate this symptom?

Thank you Peter. Feels good hear you guys acknowledge this. I noticed something that may be of interest. When playing back Cinema DNG's, Resolve Studio leaves a lot (at least several hundreds) open file handlers pointing to the wave file within the Cinema DNG directory. Not a big issue but perhaps it's a clue to why the audio sub system is acting up. I noticed this by accident while I was browsing through camera SSD's looking for a lost clip and had to quit Resolve before every drive change to release the file handlers.

Did a fresh install of Centos 7.3 and updated the Nvidia driver, but the plugins still override each other. DCTLs are now working fine. No audio, but this is consistent with everyone else's experience.

I added the two remaining plugins (ResolveMath and LGGv2) to the repository.

Hey guys,

So I found a video earlier in this forum to get Da Vinci Resolve working in Ubuntu 16.04

I followed it however this is the error I got:

Extracting files...

tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

Now the below which is the first bit is to be expected:

Extracting files...
tar: /usr/lib64: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
./install.sh: line 43: Exit_With_Error: command not found

However it is the last part I am concerned with:

/bin/chown: cannot access '/home/brandon/Desktop/DaVinci Resolve.desktop': Not a directory
/bin/chmod: cannot access '/home/brandon/Desktop/DaVinci Resolve.desktop': Not a directory

Could anyone explain why I am running the following system specs:

Haven't had problems installing Resolve on Centos 7 and OpenSUSE Leap.

Thank you BM for making Linux version - Resolve is such an awesome piece of software, glad to have ability to run it on my main workstation .

Hope you'll be able to release version with properly running sound and h264 decoding (at the very least - encoding would be welcome too). Those 2 are a real letdown.
I've been able to figure out "black" preview fix by myself by switching to 8bit mode, but I wonder if the same is needed on Windows/OSX.
As others I got log4cxx errors on start , but haven't noticed those affecting the app so far.
I've also noticed Resolve taxes cpu (2 threads if I recall correctly on CPU with hyperthreading) even on idle - no clue why.
I'm checking out different export options now - at this point I'm struggling with getting 30fps output , as soon as I set it up I get "horizontal jitter". But that might be me not setting it up correctly (24 fps works without problems).

Other than that the app runs fine so far and I'm super happy to have a proper video editor on my Linux PC.
As for suggested "audio" workaround - does it work with Intensity Shuttle (USB 3.0 version)? I really have no use for decklink monitor pcie card, while a capture card/station would be something I could consider :) .

Thank you very much for releasing this!

Installed pretty well on a mid 2010 MacPro running Ubuntu 16.04 LTS with a Nvidia GTX960.
Just had to install some dependencies and simlink the lib.so as mentioned a few posts above.

Its the first step in the right direction and gives a lot of frustrated mac users hope to finally make the change to Linux and concentrate on work again (please no discussions about this).

I hope there will be some smart hacker figuring out the codec problem and the audio issue, then I will feel free as in freedom...

As far as I think Resolve was originally only available for linux , later it was ported to Mac and Windows , BMD just made a Lite version for linux users. H264 is available for Studio users in Linux, probably some license specific issues given that Linux doesn't have something like Quicktime. Well Apple stopped supporting the Quicktime for Windows a few years back, it is highly likely that BMD is working with something cross platform like ffmpeg for future Davinci versions and that H264 issue will be solved. It is confirmed that BMD is working on the sound issue for the future releases. And for that taxing on couple of CPUs , it happens because of the Davinci Panel Daemon, just rename the "DavinciPanelDaemon" executable in /opt/resolve/bin directory to any other name if you don't use panels to work with Resolve , this would solve the problem.

And if you are trying to use Resolve as a Video Editor, please refrain from doing so, Resolve is first a CC tool then a video editor , if you want an industry grade Video Editor on Linux try Editshare Lightworks, it supports almost every second codec, has better editing tools than Resolve, has a Lite version which limits output to 720p and as an added bonus the new interface looks like Resolve.

thx for the tips Kuntal. Will try renaming the panel daemon file and will see what happens with cpu usage.
Kuntal Majumder wrote:Linux doesn't have something like Quicktime.

but it does and you named it - ffmpeg :D . And that's not the only option. That's why I think issues with decoding/encoding on Resolve and Fusion are a bummer (not as big as sound issue, but still).

Tried Lightworks and have to admit I didn't like it that much. The things I was able to do in Resolve straight away , without flipping through the manual have taken a whole lot more effort for me in Lightworks (heck, even transitions). Even though the new version , with new UI style is better, I still have more faith in Resolve. To be honest the only thing I really liked about Lightworks was the fluidity and speed with which it handled quite heavy files I've thrown at it.
With Fusion and Resolve (plus Handbrake / ffmpeg cli) I finally feel I can work on videos on my linux workstation, without switching to an old windows box running HitFilm. Prior to that the situation on Linux pretty much sucked (at least in mid-tier).

but it does and you named it - ffmpeg :D . And that's not the only option. That's why I think issues with decoding/encoding on Resolve and Fusion are a bummer (not as big as sound issue, but still).


Oops, just a slip of tongue, it should be "Linux doesn't have Quicktime" .

And yes Lightworks it not like the regular video editors out there in the market but once you get the hang of it, it becomes better than the rest.

It's great to have Windows in the rear view mirror, but there are still a few items left before it's totally gone.

There appears to be no way to read Sony F5/55 RAW files on Linux, since the AXSM reader requires a driver. So a Windows system must be available for ingest.

I planned to use exFAT for transfers, but found that while SSD's formatted ext4 or XFS playback fine, they choke badly when formatted exFAT. Playback which starts at 24fps can grind to a halt, and Gnome can freeze for moments when copying from exFAT drives.

So I'm transferring/re-formatting the SSD's now, and getting ready to reconfigure the Windows stripe set to a Linux RAID0.

If anyone has any tips about the best method for stripping a RAID on Linux, or has a fix for exFAT, please chime in.

Cheers.

Hi Dwaine, quick follow-up and for the people watching the no audio on Linux thread.

Today my DeckLink Monitor card arrived, it took about 5 minutes to install, and the drivers where up and running without a hitch. So ... as of today I no long require my Windows 10 boot partition.

The audio is working on Linux Mint 18.1 with the Decklink Card (Have not tested Centos 7.3 yet).

Many thanks for the suggestion.

Installed via the live-DVD image and everything looks ok, except the fact I can't play any stills :?
Anybody with the same issue? Anybody with a solution?

I have no problem playing stills. If you import a still in Media, right click and create a timeline from the clip, does it not play on the timeline in edit?

Cheers.

I can capture stills, export them and apply grades from it. The only thing that doesn't work is play a still in the color pages UI viewer (nor on the external display) as a reference. The clip will wipe against a black window background... Weird though.

Noel: this may be useful to set up your RAID 0:

# mdadm --create --verbose /dev/md0 --level=0 --raid-devices=3 /dev/sdb /dev/sdc /dev/sdc
# mkfs.ext4 /dev/md0
# mkdir /mnt/stripe
# mount /dev/md0 /mnt/stripe

after a reboot you should re-assemble the stripe with

# mdadm --assemble /dev/md0

and mount again

Thanks Maarten, I'll give that a go.

I still can't replicate your problem. I've tried .jpg, tiff, and .dng stills, and they all are fine in Edit and Color.

I do remember some mention of bit depth being a problem, so you might try changing the preference settings.

Cheers.

My problem targets the other kind of stills: the reference stills. Grabbing them from a grade and play them out again as reference..
In the meantime I ran into all other kinds of bugs, so I call it a day and better wait until for an update to come alive.

/sdb,c,d, are your volumes to be striped, to check with # fdisk -l
