Video FX Crashing

Hoping BlackMagic can remedy this. Some of the updates are a great and welcomed step up from Resolve 16, but each time I try to select something from the video fx, it crashes. Lost an entire project I didn't save. On me for not saving, I know... but still.

I loved 16 and was considering buying the full version, but I'm naturally apprehensive about it now. After all, crashing was the reason I left Premiere and migrated this way. (btw, running a 2019 MBP 16, i9 2.4ghz 8-core, 32gb ram, 2tb SSD, AMD Radeon Pro 5500m 8gb. Shouldn't be having these issues.) Come through for us BM!

app issues

since updating to 17.1 the program has been acting up, crashing for no reason, not saving properly, and rewriting over all of my footage. I had to turn in an assignment late because of this program. I'm really disappointed because it was working just fine before the update. Please fix these issues

I recently downloaded it on my new Mac. It did not crash. I watched a couple of videos on You Tube and felt confident that I could use it. I think its biggest strength is the special effects. It does prompt you to upgrade but that is not a negative, after all the creators spent money, sweat and effort into it. I may upgrade once I become an expert but I really liked it.
