Please try to clear the OpenFX cache by doing the following:

      Type or paste in: ~/Library/Application Support/Blackmagic Design/DaVinci Resolve/
       
      3. Delete the OFXPluginCache.xml file at this location

      4. Relaunch Resolve




Windows
  1. Close DaVinci Resolve

  2. Open OpenFX plugin cache file location


    • Open a File Explorer window

Re-enabling the OpenFX Plugin in DaVinci Resolve

When the OFX plugin causes a problem or crashes DaVinci Resolve it gets blacklisted and Resolve won't attempt to load it anymore. Even if you re-install a plugin or install a different version of the plugin.
In order to load the plugin again, we need to tell Resolve to do so. Go to Preferences and Video Plugins section:



Tick the checkbox next to the plugin, click Save and restart DaVinci Resolve. The plugin will be loaded on startup.
