Issues with Reactor 3, modify with audio. Resolve 16 on Windows 10.

#1

Hi!

New to this world of nodes, filters and such. Wanted to play around with a few things and ended up finding Reactor 3, since I wanted to try to modify text to react to audio.

(When I installed Resolve 16 I did not do so in native C:\ folder, I decided to install on my external hard drive.)

I installed Reactor 3 by dragging it into the node viewer in Fusion and it installed. Once the window for Reactor opened I searched for Suck Less Audio and installed it, restarted Resolve and got to work. I created a new fusion composition, added a text-node and under "Layout" I wanted to modify the size with Audio. As soon as I chose this the text in both the text-node and MediaOut-node turns red. From this point nothing I do seems to change anything, like it "crashed".

The SuckLessAudio.fuse is not found in Appdata\Roaming\Blackmagic Design\Fusion (the "Fusion"-folder is not here either). I tried searching for it manually and found it in "C:\ProgramData\Blackmagic Design\DaVinci Resolve\Fusion\Reactor\Deploy\Fuses\Modifiers". I also made sure that I used a .WAV-file for this and have reinstalled both reactor and Resolve 16 a few times.

Did something go wrong with the installation of Reactor 3? Below is what my log-file says.

Did something go wrong with the installation of Reactor 3?

It would be great to have a few more details to narrow things down.

Does your copy of Resolve 16 have Reactor listed in the Script menu? Does the Reactor window open successfully and list all of the packages when you restart Resolve? Have you tried installing any other packages using Reactor? Do those packages show up and work?

If the other packages work as expected then possibly it's just the combination of the audio file and the modifier you are having issues with.

The SuckLessAudio.fuse is not found in Appdata\Roaming\Blackmagic Design\Fusion (the "Fusion"-folder is not here either). I tried searching for it manually and found it in "C:\ProgramData\Blackmagic Design\DaVinci Resolve\Fusion\Reactor\Deploy\Fuses\Modifiers".

Reactor's content in Resolve 16 for Windows is installed to the AllData:\Reactor PathMap folder by default which translates to the C:\ProgramData\Blackmagic Design\DaVinci Resolve\Fusion\Reactor\ folder.

You can easily jump into the Reactor folder by selecting the "Script > Reactor > Tools > Show Reactor Folder" menu item in Resolve. Then browse into the "Deploy" folder in the Windows Explorer file browser window that appears.


For the SuckLess Audio File Modifier to work, the WAV file has to be a "WAV (Microsoft) signed 16-bit PCM". The official WSL thread for the SuckLess Audio File Modifier is here: viewtopic.php?p=4138#p4138

I am able to install, open and muck around with the other things. I installed Blurry edges and played around with that for a bit and it worked without issues.

Welcome to WSL, @Skuggrekyl! Let's demystify the world of nodes and filters for you, you're in the right place :)

Sounds like Reactor is working just fine for you, then.

Reactor is merely the interface to install third party content to Fusion. In that sense Suck Less Audio is not a part of Reactor, but is made available through it.

I've gone ahead and moved your SLA question to the designated topic: viewtopic.php?p=25213#p25213 and we can continue that discussion there...
