DaVinci Resolve is a freely available professional post-production suite. It is used on countless professional feature films and television series around the world for its powerful colour correction tool-set and, increasingly, as video editing software.
In this introductory course, students will learn the basics of the interface, and how to use Resolve as a post-production workflow tool. We will discuss why some camera formats are more difficult to work with than others and how you can optimize media for a smoother playback. We will sync multi-cam footage in preparation for an Edit, navigate the new Cut page, and walk through how to render a completed project.
Students will need to download and install DaVinci Resolve (Free) or DaVinci Resolve Studio (Paid) version 16.2.0 or later to participate in this course. Installer files can be found at www.blackmagicdesign.com/support
