Configuring DaVinci Resolve with AMD GPUs


Great news! DaVinci Resolve -finally- works without any AMD proprietary drivers required!

> First, download

https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/davinciresolve

> Open a terminal and navigate to the folder containing the download:

cd ~/Downloads

> unzip it:

unzip DaVinci_Resolve_Studio_*.zip

> install it:

./DaVinci_Resolve_Studio_18.0.1_Linux.run -i

> Next, install the following package:

sudo dnf install rocm-opencl

And that’s it! Now you can run DaVinci Resolve on your AMD hardware.

*** IMPORTANT NOTES ***:

  1. When you open DaVinci Resolve for the first time, a black box will come up. This is the first-time welcome screen failing to render properly. You can just close this box. After that DaVinci Resolve will launch normally.
  2. Please note that DaVinci Resolve does not have the ability to encode video on AMD GPU hardware.
