Davinci Resolve 17 Playback Issues

PostThu Apr 15, 2021 7:42 pm


I've been experiencing playback issues when attempting to add certain effects to my clip. For instance I'm using footage that plays consistently at 24 frames, but when I add the binoculars effect for example it cuts the frame rate on playback in half.

I have a 2070 Super and 32 gbs of RAM in my PC. Any ideas?

You may need to Cache those effects.

Which GPU in that Mac and which source format? XEON CPUs don't have hardware acceleration for video.
Don't approach Resolve with your expectations from other NLEs! They are all different.
Resolve Studio 17.2 and Fusion Studio 17, macOS 10.15.7
iMac 2017 Radeon Pro 580 8 GB VRAM, 32 GB RAM
2018 Mac mini 16 GB RAM, eGFX Breakway RX 580 MacOS 10.15.7
