Saving and finding project file to use later
on Mar 2, 2018 at 4:14:47 pm

Hi,

I am new to Resolve DaVinci. I have been using Final Cut 7 and Premiere Pro for many years.

I downloaded the free version of Resolve DaVinci to learn how to use it. I have figured out a lot of it so far.

The only thing I am having trouble with is:

A-When I press "save", Where does it save it? Can I change that location?

B-When I export a project so I can work on it again later, I choose where I want to save it and it does save. BUT, it's a blank file (see picture Below). When I double click it to open it in DaVinci Resolve, it does not open it.

How can I solve these problems?

Thanks in advance






I'm working on an iMac Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2015
3.2 GHz Intel Core i5
16 GB 1867 MHz DDR3
AMD Radeon R9 M380 2 GB

in the project page, you have to right-click and select import project, point to the drp, and it should work.

The projects aren't like FCP projects, or Avid, or Premiere Pro, out in the open. No, the Resolve projects are buried DEEP in some database. So, yeah, if you want to save it externally, you need to EXPORT it,...but then you need to IMPORT it and it'll create a new one as you already have it in the Project Manager. So, I suggest only doing the EXPORT as a backup.
