Macbook Pro battles with Resolve
on Aug 5, 2015 at 7:46:25 am


My Macbook Pro battles to playback video and audio. I've tried various types of media from different cameras(EX3, C300, F55 etc). I'm hoping that it's an issue that will be addressed as all my other edit applications have no problems with the exact same media.
I have the latest CUDA drivers and the latest Blackmagic Video Playback utility installed.

Any comments or ideas would be most wewlcome.

Thanks

With the understanding that your MBP is underpowered for Resolve, try Resolve 12 BETA 2. The playback is greatly improved.

Resolve does a lot more math than other applications.

Good Fortune,

Have a read through Chapter 5 of the Resolve 12 Colorist manual:
Improving Performance, Proxies, and the Render Cache

There are multiple suggestions for improving performance on under-powered systems.

Thanks for the info guys, most helpful. I know my MBP is a tad underpowered but I really want to give AVID the heave ho. Might buy a new baby with all the subscription money I'll save!

Yup, you are going to have problems. Your graphics card has less than the minimum amount of RAM than Resolve 12 says it needs.....
