Resolve 14 Crashing on "Create new timeline"

PostThu Mar 22, 2018 4:34 pm

I've been working on a project for two weeks.
In this project, I have several timelines and a good 350GB (approximately) worth of footage in both UHD and 1080p resolutions in H.264 codec Recorded with 3x Sony a6300 mirrorless cameras. I also have a few 4k DCI shots from my DJI Phantom 4 Pro Drone (also h264).
As I was finishing the edit today, I tried to open a 2,5 hour long timeline to copy some shots. And then Resolve Crashed.
I opened again and after fiddling around I found that it crashes when I try to open any long timeline and when I try to Create a new timeline. But oddly enough if I drag and drop the timeline to my source monitor it opens and plays back perfectly!
What is strange is that up until now Resolve was working perfectly and I was cutting on it 14hrs a day over the past 6 months!
Long story short, I red the other threads about Resolve Crashing and tried the "increase page file" and "Disable audio plugins" solutions and none of these worked.

My Specs are:

Windows 10 Pro
32 GB Ram
i7-7700K @ 4.2 GHz
GTX 960 3GB
SSD 256 as my system drive, External USB3.0 2TB for my footage
Resolve (not Studio)

Here you'll find the Resolve logs ... sp=sharing

If anyone has a solution I would appreciate it!

I don't know that this is what's causing the issue, but in the crashing project, you have the Video Monitoring settings set to something the DeckLink Mini Monitor 4K card doesn't like.

Fix that, and see if that has any effect on the issue.
