Occasionally you may come across problems with adding and getting text to show up in DaVinci Resolve 17. In this guide, we'll go over some of the common causes of this issue and the solutions.
If your titles aren't working in DaVinci Resolve, it may be caused by a few different things. Some common issues include a black screen after adding text, media offline, inability to add a new title track and text that cuts off the screen. Read on to find out how to repair your invisible text in Davinci Resolve.
If your text is not showing up in your rendered and/or exported video, make sure that the track containing the text is not disabled on the “Edit” page, prior to exporting it from your video from the “Deliver” page.
This is a simple fix. Simply bring the text layer Infront of the video layer.

If your text is not showing due to a 'media offline' issue in DaVinci Resolve, try this:
Go to the menu, then select “Playback” > “Timeline Proxy Resolution” > and use either “Half” or “Quarter”.
This will force DaVinci Resolve to render the clip at a lower resolution which will not consume as much resources, and thus, won't trigger the 'media offline' issue.
If you're presented with a black screen after adding text in DaVinci Resolve, this could be due to the usage of a fusion title with resource-consuming effects. To fix this, simply right click on the text track and select "render in place" to make the text render properly during playback.
