Re: Black bars on side when rendering C4K footage

You see my specs. It's not an ILM workstation but it's pretty beefy. Why won't Resolve let me set a C4K timeline? I've cleared my RAM cache, and only have one project open, but I get that error message when I try to render with the timeline set to C4K...

Re: How to Correct Audio Pops in Premiere?
