UI of File Browser inside Davinci

PostTue Jan 12, 2021 2:11 am

I have a weird UI of File Browser in Davinci Resolve, it's different from people.
Please take a look the image in the attachment. I attached here 2 version of the UI of File Browser:

1st version is in my Davinci, when I want to do some file browsing (for example, relink clips for Bin), then the UI of pop-out window look like that.

2nd version is the UI in Davinci of people on youtube, and it's really easier for me to locate & navigate to the source in the computer.

Please someone helps me how to change the UI of file browser to 2nd version?

The first is normal.

Not sure what the second is.

That's not user configurable. The first one is from the operating system, the second one is native to Resolve.

May be the first one is because you are accessing OneDrive. These are the choices I get in the Media page with an internal drive.

Hai's example is a popup window though, not the Media Storage tab.

Exactly! The issue here is about popup window, not the Media Storage tab as Charles Bennett mentioned above.

Actually, a year ago when I first used Davinci, I saw the 2nd version of UI.
Just a few months ago, it automatically (or maybe I pressed something by accident!) changed to 1st version of UI which caused me really mad.

Oh, I didn't even notice that. I thought it was just Media Storage.

It’s up to BMD. They can choose to show the OS file browser or their own and in Resolve they use both for different purposes. It’s not something a user can change.

If you select Import/Media in the File menu, or Ctrl+I, you then get a floating browser window which you can drag and drop files from.
