Checking it out right now. I'll put it to the test and see if it can handle all of my videoblocks.com and pixabay.com 1080p videos. Beyond that I don't need anything fancy. If I need fancy I do it in After Effects.Resolve? It's free.
Looks like you like DaVinci Resolve the best. You said that it's strictly an editing program. Do you mean that it doesn't do After Effects type stuff, fancy audio editing, etc? I use Nuendo for audio and After Effects for motion graphics so that would work well for me.Go to caiofilm.com and check out all of the different free and open-source software on the $0 Budget Software webpage. There are at least 3 different NLEs that can open ProRes.
Disclosing that it is my website that has the list of open-source or free software relevant to filmmakers. Cheers!
I guess I don't understand your situation.Looks like you like DaVinci Resolve the best. You said that it's strictly an editing program.

Before you switch to your 14 year old Final Cut Pro / MAC system, try Blender. It is open source, is stable (here), has a built in video editor (VSE) and it accepts Prores 422 files.Wow this DaVinci is unstable as hell. It keeps closing out the program when doing something simple like clicking a button. I think I'm going to switch to editing my short on my old 14 year old Final Cut Pro / MAC system. I will have to convert a bunch of clips that it can't open but at least it should be stable. Or heck... maybe I'll just continue to put it all together with After Effects on my PC. Rendering is slow but at least it doesn't crash. I could render low quality clips just to edit with, then later replace them (with the high quality clips) for the final rending.
Indietalk is absolutely right. 8GB RAM will shut the system down.I don't think the crashing is because of lack of RAM. It doesn't crash during playback. The last time it crashed I was simply clicking from the color page to the edit page.
Just curious. Do you have any of your working media on your boot drive, or is all of your media on an external (or secondary) drive?Well I upgraded to 16 GB of RAM. Resolve is still crashing. This last time it did it was when I had done some color correction to a clip, then additionally tried to adjust the contrast setting. Boom! Program closed out! Too bad, because I really liked the feel of this Resolve video editing program. I will only use it for very simple projects that don't involve color correction.
Most programs will give you some sort of error message rather than crash. At least Final Cut Pro gives you the dreaded "General Error" or something like that.
