    Haven’t been able to find answers as to why in my Resolve 17.2.1 I don’t have the generate proxies function available. Anyone any ideas?

    When you right-click on the media, you should get a menu that includes ‘generate optimized media’. You don’t have that?

    Optimized media is the same as proxy media – but you’ll need to go into your settings, choose ‘Master Settings’, scroll down a bit and look for ‘Optimized Media & Render Cache’. My system defaults to higher quality media, so I make sure to select something I know is less than the worst quality media I have.

    You can also make sure to select ‘Playback – Render Cache – Smart’ in the main menu. Your system will generate optimized media during inactive periods.
