How to Activate DaVinci Resolve Studio

Just bought DaVinci Resolve Studio? Here’s how to activate it.

It’s a simple process but it’s important to download the correct version and be connected to the internet.

In this video from Blackmagic Design, you’ll learn about:

  • Info about your activation card or code
  • How to download DaVinci Resolve Studio
  • Inputting your code
  • Troubleshooting if it doesn’t work
  • How to Deactivate a license

If you haven’t yet purchased Studio, you can purchase from my favorite reseller, Motion Media and use the code DVRESOLVE5 to save $15.

  1. Hello,
    Thanks for the DRS installer video. The problem is that the tech mentions that if you cannot input the activation code, you may be running the free version. Well, how about covering how to get around that? Do I uninstall the free version first? Is it safe, will I loose the projects that exist in the free version? It is annoying when a problem is identified and mentioned but no fix provided or even mention to another video to cover that.
