If you are trying to load your Waves plugins in DaVinci Resolve but you cannot find them, follow these instructions to make the plugins available.
Step #1 – Verify plugin software is installed
Check whether the relevant plugin file/s are correctly installed on your computer.
Windows: C:\Program Files (x86)\Waves\Plug-Ins V14, (or whichever version is installed on your device, V13-V9)
Mac: Macintosh HD > Applications > Waves > Plug-Ins V14, (or whichever version is installed on your device, V13-V9)
The relevant plugin file will be named after the plugin, in this format: [PluginName].bundle. For example, the plugin file for Reel ADT will be named Reel ADT.bundle.
If the plugins you are looking for are not there, install the plugins by following the instructions in this link.
Please note that Waves plugins are supported in DaVinci Resolve from V14 and higher. If you are using an older version of Waves plugins, we recommend updating them to the latest version.
Step #2 – Rescan for Plugins
