not quite like the version directly from Blackmagic

Anyone know how to get multi gpu enabled in the App store version? I am using a 2017 MBP and an eGPU. in the preference section of resolve under hardware, it only shows the eGPU and not the built in discrete GPU

This IS the real Studio version.

I don't believe anyone is trying to actually misguide a potential buyer. You'll see reviewers claiming that this App Store version is not the same as the one you can purchase directly from Blackmagic. That information is incorrect. There is a difference between the two and it has to do with the location of the files needed to run Resolve. This App Store version places files and folders needed to run Resolve and third party plug-ins in the Users Library folder while the version purchased directly from Blackmagic places them in the startup disks main Library folder.


do not buy this software

I was running the free version of davinci resolve 15 for some time now and wanted to buy a perpetual license digitally, I found out the only way to do it was to buy it from the apple store. After making this purchase it came with immediate regret. Previous sessions I had made before was telling me certain media files were disconnected which made no sense because I didn’t move any of the source files.

Secondly, this apple store version isn’t the full version. This version is extreme glitchy compared to the free version I had been using and it crashes randomly more often than it should. In about an hour of using it I counted about 4 crashes. I completely regret this purchase and I’m trying tooth and nail to get my refund.
