DaVinci Resolve Tutorial.
A complete how to guide.
I know this is a very strange time for us all at the moment. I’m self employed and have been in a state of limbo for the past week.
Which is character building.
Im attempting to treat the next 12 weeks as self development period, learn some new skills, finally pick up my guitar and use the fender app course, and make the move finally from Adobe Premier Pro to DaVinci Resolve.
I am also intending to keep the blog going. Its important to establish routines, not only for my sanity but also to be productive.
Right lets crack on.
What is DaVinci Resolve?
DaVinci Resolve is basically and all in one video editor, effects generator, colour grader and audio editor.
‘DaVinci Resolve 16 is the world’s only solution that combines professional 8K editing, color correction, visual effects and audio post production all in one software tool! You can instantly move between editing, color, effects, and audio with a single click. DaVinci Resolve Studio is also the only solution designed for multi user collaboration so editors, assistants, colorists, VFX artists and sound designers can all work live on the same project at the same time! Whether you’re an individual artist, or part of a large collaborative team, it’s easy to see why DaVinci Resolve is the standard for high end post production and finishing on more Hollywood feature films, television shows and commercials than any other software.’

If you’re familiar with Adobe Premier Pro and you’re thinking of switching to DaVinci Resolve have a look at this.
Let’s look at the interface.
First up is the media page. This is where you import all of your media ready to edit.
Then we have the cut page. This is where you can do really quick cuts to your footage to get a sense of what you have and to show the rest of the crew (if you have one).
Theres the edit page. This is where you will edit your footage. For those used to editing programmes this will feel really familiar.
Once you’ve done your edit you may want to move to the fusion page. This is for your effects and any fancy things you want to do.
This is for Resolve 14, not much has changed to be honest.
Now is the page that made Resolve’s name. The colour page. This is such a powerful section.
So we’ve imported our media, done a quick cut, a full edit, added our effects and have done our colour grade now time for the audio.
Right you’re done. Well almost you just need to export your footage out or deliver it in DaVinci Resolve.
This is for Resolve 15 but again nothing much has changed.
Don’t want to scroll through all the videos. Here is a crash course for beginners.
Sweet your all set. Enjoy.
