Is it possible to run Resolve 9 and Lite?
on Jun 13, 2013 at 9:08:20 pm

Hello,

I've got a Blackmagic Cinema Cam and my Resolve v9. Problem is the USB dongle. I run it on my laptop and carrying the dongle is a complete pain.

For what I do, I can do it with Lite and is there a way to run both on the same partition?

Thanks,

John

Depends on what you do. If you don't need noise reduction and more than HD output on your laptop, just run Lite. You can't run both, not without dual boot to different partitions.

Thanks Timo, I just downloaded Lite, installed and it just opened without a problem with all my projects from Resolve still in tack. I figured a partition was in order. Only HD output for me at the moment.

Thanks again,

John

I do really wish they'd set it up so Resolve would just run as Resolve Lite when the dongle wasn't attached, instead of having two separate apps.

That would enable the hackers to simply fake the dongle ID.
If you offer free software most people wont bother.

I run Resolve Lite and Resolve on one machine. Use Resolve Lite to open projects which are HD and simple and I need to continue work on another system that doesn't have Resolve full.. I run Resolve full when 2k or over, or if NR is needed.

Works fine. I just have to be careful to upgrade both together.

Neil, could you describe how you accomplished this? Have you experienced any issues at all? Thanks.

I installed Resolve Lite and worked on it for a few weeks. When I needed larger than HD projects I went out and bought Resolve full.

After I had installed Resolve Lite, I had an app called DaVinci Resolve in the Applications folder. I renamed that to DaVinci Resolve Lite.

Then I installed Resolve full. So, now I have two apps in the Applications folder DaVinci Resolve Lite, and DaVinci Resolve.
I run Lite or Full depending on the kind of project I need to work on. In either, all projects are visible. Any project that starts in Resolve full won't open in Resolve Lite. Any project that starts in Resolve Lite opens fine in Resolve full. But I don't mix the two.

When an upgrade is available, I download both Lite and Full. I backup the database, just in case.
Then, I first run the full installer and uninstall the full version. Then rename the DaVinci Resolve Lite app back to DaVinci Resolve. Then I run the Lite installer and uninstall the Lite version.

Next, I install Resolve Lite. So again I have an app called DaVinci Resolve in the Applications folder. I rename that to DaVinci Resolve Lite.
Then I install Resolve full. This gives me an App called DaVinci Resolve in the Applications folder. So, now I have two apps in the Applications folder DaVinci Resolve Lite, and DaVinci Resolve. As before, I run Lite or Full depending on the kind of project I need to work on. In either, all projects are visible.

I've done this since v 8.2 and through all the upgrades and it works just fine. I have no users created in Resolve and all my projects are in Admin. I'm doing this on a MacPro with 16 GB RAM and a Quadro 4000 card installed.

As in any such things, YMMV.

Thanks Neil! That's exactly what I thought, but wanted to be sure. I'm so glad it works. I just finished that whole process myself and now have both the full and lite versions on my computer and can run either one. Perfect!

This dual installation works fine on v12.5.4 too.

This is not possible as both of them use the same app name and share resources. Copying the app bundle to a different folder is not recommended and it will cause issues.
