New Install of Resolve - Crashes before even beginning

PostMon May 21, 2018 11:22 pm

Hey all,

This is my first time attempting to use Resolve. I have experience with Adobe Premiere. Today, I downloaded 15 Beta, and it installed ok... but when I get to the page where i can create a new project... the moment I try to do that... the program just crashes.

Maybe my processor and GPU are not good enough?

I'd appreciate any help.

Cheers,

~andy

Andy, the Geforce 8800 GTS is far too old and not capable to use for Resolve.

Please have a look at the published Configuration Guide for guidance and consider a current model GPU. More CPU ram would not go astray either.
