  1. I think it’s easier this way, there’s no need to run the program:

    – Windows:
    – All users: C:\ProgramData\Blackmagic Design\DaVinci Resolve\Fusion\Templates\Edit\

    where to create directories to store custom templates:
    – Effects
    – Titles
    – Transitions

    1. The location has changed over the past few updates, this is always going to the newest location if it ever changes. If you install a bundle it’s just a one button click now.
