There are two kinds of DaVinci Resolve assets on our Marketplace, they are DaVinci Resolve Templates & DaVinci Resolve Macros, and each have a different method of use respectively. Please note that Templates are opened while Macros are installed.

DaVinci Resolve Templates are pre-made DaVinci Resolve projects which you can open and add your own placeholder media into and customize elements.


DaVinci Resolve Macros are installable drag & drop effects, titles and transitions. These appear under the Effects Library after installation.
