Can't Restore Waveform View

PostSat Apr 10, 2021 8:34 pm

Editing video, including editing some audio with an external editor (iZotope RX 8). Everything works fine editing and sound-wise, but the waveform view disappears at some point. So I:

- Search for the command to make Resolve rebuild waveforms but can't find it. (There must be one, right?)
- See that some people have had success deleting their CacheClip directories.
- I delete my cacheclip directories, relaunch Resolve, let it rebuild waveforms and...
- Audio for unmodified clips now have waveforms, but
- Waveforms for clips with modified audio (.wav file format) still not visible in Edit view, BUT
- Waveforms for all clips are visible in Fairlight view!

How can I get my waveforms back in the Edit window? If I can't see the sound, the editing I need to do is going to take about 100 times longer.

Windows 10, Resolve Studio 17.1.1 Build 9.

Try to switch off waveform display in the TL settings and then on again.
Don't approach Resolve with your expectations from other NLEs! They are all different.
