Cannot install Reactor on Resolve 16 Studio.

Post by daydreamer » Tue Apr 28, 2020 12:49 pm

Hello all,

I am relativeley new to Davinci Resolve, I got my studio version yesterday. I tried to install Reactor in all the possible ways, but I'm getting always an error message.
  • drag'n#drop the .lua file in the nodes view --> nothing happens
    trying to drag the .lua file in the console (by the way, I hope, it is the right console --> Menu Workspace | Console --> I'm getting an error message:
    Lua> file:///F:/Reactor-Installer.lua
    [string "???"]:1: '<name>' expected near '/'
I guess, this is an absolute newbie question (I'm sorry for that), but I found no solution in the forum.
Can anyone tell me, what I'm doing wrong?

Best regards
Matthias

Looks like somehow you managed to download the file as an HTML page, rather than the actual script.

The first line of the script should read _VERSION = [[Version 3.141 - October 31, 2019]]

Try downloading the installer again and open it in a text editor to double check.

Hello SecondMan,

thanks for your quick answer.
I opened the lua file in an editor, here the first lines:

_VERSION = [[Version 3.141 - October 31, 2019]]
_REPO_EDITION = [[Install Reactor Version π (3.14)]]
--[[
==============================================================================
Reactor Installer - v3.141 2019-10-31
==============================================================================
Requires : Fusion v9.0.2 to v16.1+ or Resolve v15 to v16.1+
Created By : Andrew Hazelden [andrew@andrewhazelden.com]

I have downloaded the file from the We suck less page. I got the same issue, as I was trying to install it on my Davinci Resolve (free) version.
I am on Windows 10 Home. Would it help to start Resolve with administrative rights or something else needed?

Best regards
Matthias

Here's a link to a short video, where you can see, how I'm doing that.

Oh, that's weird. I wonder if there's something preventing FusionScript from running. Like a virus scanner, or firewall or something.

Try copying the script itself in the console input like this (and press Enter to run it):
