Why the "DAVINCI RESOLVE STUDIO" logo is displayed and what to do about it


There are clips that are displayed as "DAVINCI RESOLVE STUDIO" when played on DaVinci Resolve. It is also displayed on video files created by rendering (output/export) with Deliver. Please tell me the reason and the countermeasure.


This is because the clip in question uses a feature that requires DaVinci Resolve Studio (paid version) and the video is open in the free version of DaVinci Resolve.

"If you don't care about the logo, there's no practical problem with using the paid version for the final delivery."

In general, the answer is "Please use DaVinci Resolve Studio (paid version)", but please understand the reason and make effective use of the free version. I hope you will purchase it.
(In order to increase the number of users of the paid version of DaVinci Resolve in the future, I would like to make this answer because I think it is important for more people to use the free version effectively.)

The licensed version (non-USB version) of DaVinci Resolve Studio (paid version) can be used on two PCs at the same time. It doesn't matter what OS. If you have a surplus license, please use the paid version.

If you are editing one project on multiple PCs, it is quite possible that some PCs are using the free version.

Even if this logo is displayed, you can edit it in the free version and save it without any problem. I think that it can be used sufficiently by editing with the free version and finally rendering (output / exporting) from deliver with the paid version.

In addition, since hardware accelerators such as GPUs cannot be used for decoding in the free version of Windows, playback on the timeline will be slower than in the paid version. Other than this, there is no difference in performance during editing between the paid version and the free version, including the mac environment.

Therefore, when using the free version in a Windows environment, it is good to consider that the performance will be affected in addition to the logo appearing with the effect.
