OFX PLUGIN INSTALLATION

PostThu Jun 26, 2014 6:06 am

I own FilmConvert and thought I would play around with their OFX plugin in Resolve. However, when I install the FilmConvert OFX plugin, it doesn't show up in the effect library in Resolve. I know this is kind of a FilmConvert question, but I was just wondering where OFX plugins are supposed to be installed for Resolve to "find' them. Can't find that info anywhere. Thanks!

On my PC, (which is running FilmConvert Pro OFX and Resolve 11 without issue) OFX plugins can be found here:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\OFX\Plugins\FilmConvertPro.ofx.bundle

On a Mac? I can't find such a folder. Could you be more specific?

Hold down the option key and pull down the GO menu in the Finder. You'll see the Library Folder as a choice. Select it. Finder will open the Library, and you can continue from there.

Thank you, I understand how to access my User Library. That is not the problem. The problem is that there is no such thing as an OFX folder in my library...so I can't really "continue" from there unless I literally create one which seems like something that Resolve should have done. What am I missing.

When you install an OpenFx compliant plugin the standard dictates where the items are placed. Resolve looks in the places defined by the standard. If you have installed an OFX plugin and you can't see it in the Resolve interface, please check with your plugin vendor.

After having installed Beautybox and Filmconvert OFX plugins, everytime I open Resolve 11, I find this message coming in: "OFX is not enabled, please enable it from Color Page".
There is no way to enable the OFX from color page as the OFX button remains unabled (grey).
How do I fix this?

Subrata, did you ever fix this? I am having the same issue you were having.

Thanks,

Yes I could solve it, thanks to Rohit Gupta of the Blackmagic Support team.

This is what he told me to do:

"
In the terminal, type this command:

rm "/Library/Application Support/Blackmagic Design/DaVinci Resolve/.ofxinit"

Restart Resolve, and see if it works. If it crashes, and after you start Resolve you continue to have the same issue, one of the plugins in the /Library/OFX/Plugins folder is not working correctly. You will have to remove them one by one, and identify which plugin is problematic.

Let me know how you go!

Regards,
Rohit"

I found out that Beautybox was the culprit. After removing beautybox and doing exactly what Rohit told me to do solved my problem. Filmconvert and Saphire work fine.

Never mind, I figured out what I was doing wrong! Operator error. I had downloaded the wrong plug-in from Digital Anarchy.

Just for anyone reading this on Windows it's in

C:\ProgramData\Blackmagic Design\DaVinci Resolve\Support

ProgramData is a hidden folder, you can get to it by manually copying and pasting, or typing %programdata% into the address bar of an explorer window. Useful to know, because that location is also where the LUTs are kept
