All of the sudden I can't load any gallery refs. Meaning they exist in the gallery and I can export them out of Resolve, but when I try to view them they show up as a black screen. Furthermore, if I activate the wipe and then cycle through the "ref modes" the image doesn't update when I get to "gallery," it remains the same as the previous mode (timeline mode).

I tried creating a new project and everything worked fine, leading me to believe I may have an incorrect setting or I have some sort of weird project corruption. Thing is that I can't bare recreating the project at this point. Any ideas?

Thank you,

this has happened to me before. I did an export + and then re-imported it as a new project. then captured new stills. You may even be able to go into gallery and drag the old ones over, i forget.

if the export + method doesn't work, export and xml, make a new proj then color trace.

probably the directory set up for the stills gallery has been changed or removed (so it cannot find the source (still file )

Alex,
Thanks for the suggestion. I just tried the export+/import+ idea and it didn't solve the issue.
It would be one thing if I didn't have access to my old stills but I can't even view new ones I grab.

I also tried doing the XML thing but this is an avid originated project and when importing the XML I get a an error about some effects that aren't found.

It's a puzzling issue. I had to proceed with the project without using the reference gallery but since finishing the job I've done a lot of troubleshooting to no avail. The problem is restricted only to this project and it's copies. New projects, other existing projects and early versions of the problem project, all work fine.

I checked my still directory and it hasn't changed from the beginning.

I reached out to BMD and will report when I hear back.

Thanks,

Have you heard anything back from BMD? I have been having this same problem on and off for months on Resolve for Mac. Seems to do it to random projects even though they have the same settings as all the others that work perfectly.
Cheers,
Jon

Roman/Jon,

Could you check if your stereoscopic right or left eye are enabled on the projects where you see this issue. If it is and you disable it, does it fix the problem?

Thanks,
Anish

Yep, somehow the session was selected to left eye...

That's solved the issue, thanks!

Jon
