DaVinci Resolve, Maybe The Best Free Video Editor

DaVinci Resolve is a free video editing software from Blackmagic, a high end video camera hardware manufacturer. Many of these used by major TV and movie production companies.

One might ask, “If DaVinci Resolve is so good why is it free?” The answer is, the Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro 4.6K G2, the model many TV news crews use cost $6,000 for a start. The modular ones used my many movie production companies cost many, many thousands more. Blackmagic figures if they can lower the barrier to video production by provide a excellent editing software for anyone to use for free they may sell a lot more $12,000 video cameras.

There is a paid version but it seems that there is very few reasons to upgrade. This is a very high-end program but I think it has some wizards that make editing easy for beginners. It was praised on MacBreak Weekly on the TWiT network. It is also recommended on video/movie forums all over the Internet.

There are many tutorial to learn Resolve on DaVinci Resolve Training, YouTube and Lynda.com.

I’m not a video editor but I think I will think of a project and try it out!
