Uploading & Editing Same Files

PostThu Jun 17, 2021 12:27 pm

Hello,

I am planning on starting a new project on DaVinci. I'm also planning on uploading my files to Dropbox. My question is: can I do both at the same time? As in, can I edit the film on DaVinci while simultaneously uploading the files to Dropbox? The files are on an external SSD drive. BRAW.

You can. Editing never changes your originals.
The software may be free, but the hardware needed for smooth performance is not.

Resolve Studio 17.4.6 , MacOS 12.3.1
MacBook M1 Pro, 16 GPU cores, 32 GB RAM
and
iMac 2017, Radeon 580, 32 GB RAM

I know editing doesn't change the originals. I meant is there a tech problem using Resolve and Dropbox on the same files at the same time.

In theory it will just slow everything down. But since uploading will probably be pretty slow if you don't have a very fast connection, you may not even notice much.
