DaVinci Resolves Fusion Titles Crash Linux – How to Fix the Error in Ubuntu


I am an enthusiastic user of DaVinci Resolve, he, as an editing tool, came to make my life as a content producer much easier, be it for its interface and tools that make the editing workflow faster and save time, even your rendering, which is absolutely stunning, however, it can have some little problems, which fortunately can be fixed without too much tightening.

In general, the DaVinci Resolve installer is super simple and loads all the libraries the software needs, even without being a Snap or Flatpak, placing practically all the necessary files inside the OPT directory.

Some time ago, I resolved an issue about playing Resolve audio on an Ubuntu installation that some people mentioned having to deal with, in a super fast tutorial. The idea is to do the same here, but let’s put it in context.

Fusion Titles

Fusion is the composer of DaVinci Resolve, it would be a competitor to After Effects software, however, several animation features are available for titles involving Fusion, which in turn uses Nvidia’s CUDA technology to generate these animations. I realized that depending on the effect that I had, the program simply «crashed», that is, it crashed and closed. Despite this happening inconsistently, it was noticeable that not all «Fusion Titles» had this problem, so I discovered that what caused this failure was the lack of a symbolic link to the library libcuda, between two different folders, where Resolve looked for CUDA for use in Fusion.

How to solve the problem?

Simple, open the terminal, copy and paste this command and press “enter”:

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcuda.so /usr/lib64/libcuda.so

You can also create the symbolic link by right-clicking on the file “libcuda.so “, inside of «/ usr / lib / x86_64-linux-gnu / ”, and copy it into “usr / lib64 / ”. The terminal is probably much faster, literally a “Ctrl + C / Ctrl + V”.

Tip: If the command goes wrong due to the lack of the “user / lib64” directory, you can create it manually to solve the problem, it works perfectly. After that, just test the Fusion titles. In my experience after this change, my Resolve had no more problems with absolutely all “Fusion Titles”, so, here’s the tip. Questions about Resolve?
