DaVinci Resolve crashing while opening project

PostMon Dec 05, 2022 10:23 am

Resolve crashing while opening specific project. I've tried to export project, also export project archive nothing works. Tried on a different mac as well but the Resolve crashed every time.
Of course i don't have any backups except live save.


Im using Davinci Resolve 18.1.1. on MBP 15Inch 2017 model with Ventura 13.0.1

I'm having a similar problem except I have backups and none of them work either, project gets stuck at 95%.

I checked out your project though and it seems to actually open and then immediately crash. I'd suggest emailing in the project file, it's kind of handy that it crashes so predictably.

For backups, I suggest regular exporting .drp (project) files to a separate medium.
I never rely 100% on Auto Save (once been bitten too).
DaVinci Resolve is very capable even for free, but you need the right hardware!

Studio 18.1.4, MacOS 12.6.6, 'sandboxed' 18.5b3 under 13.4
MacBook M1 Pro, 16 GPU cores, 32 GB RAM and iPad Pro M2 16 GB
Speed Editor, UltraStudio Monitor 3G, iMac 2017
