Fairlight Presets Library Not Showing Presets

PostMon Jun 03, 2019 8:16 am

I recently bought some audio presets, unfortunately I can not seem to get them to work with DaVinci Resolve 16 even though supplier says they should. The presets don't load up at all... however, I have no issue in Resolve 15. So, my question: Is there a difference between the two Presets Library and what should I do to fix this problem?

Resolve supports VST and VST2 plugins. is that what you are referring too?

What is your system spec: viewtopic.php?f=21&t=90190

On macOS, Resolve 16's Presets Library is located within:
Users/Home/Library/Preferences/Black Magic Design/DaVinci Resolve/Fairlight/Presets

Dedicated folders are available for Channel, Console, Dynamics, EQ and Plugins.
Each folder contains .dat files - one for each preset.

In what format are the Preset files you purchased and where are they located in the directory structure?

So, my question: Is there a difference between the two Presets Library and what should I do to fix this problem?
On macOS, the Presets Library moved from it's default location in version 15, to the directory outlined above for version 16.

I am using a HP Z8 G4 system with Nvidia P5000 GPU, windows 10.

And the presets are in the presets folder which I had to create since there was non in the path below: C:\ProgramData\Blackmagic Design\DaVinci Resolve\Preferences\Fairlight\Presets and the presets are .dat files.

No. Audio presets for Fairlight such as custom EQ etc. And normally, should be able to access this under Fairlight - Presets Library ... and nothing is showing at all in Resolve 16 ... however, Resolve 15 is working properly.
