Learn The Must-Know Features in Resolve 12.5

DaVinci Resolve 12.5 Light Rays Example
DaVinci Resolve 12.5 introduced a GPU-accelerated native ‘light rays’ OpenFX. One of the many new features you’ll learn about.

The post production business keeps changing, so should you.

It just doesn’t stop, does it? New color spaces, new formats, new cameras, new codecs and the biggest yet… new workflows (think: ACES). And that means our software has to keep changing and updating just to stay current.

You need to stay current with your software.

DaVinci Resolve is the world-wide leader in color correction software. And the 12.5 Update added hundreds of new features and over a thousand bug fixes and performance tweaks. You could spend days searching YouTube (blah) or professional forums (much better) hunting for crumbs of insights. Or jump on board a Course that highlights all the things (big and small) that have changed and are worth understanding.

Update Your Skills To Stay Current.

Look beyond ‘headline features’ for the small insights that make a big difference.

This is not a trumped-up ‘intro’ Course

DaVinci Resolve 12.5 Update Insights assumes you have a good understanding of DaVinci Resolve. We’re not just showing you the new wiz-bang obvious stuff. We put it in context so you know when to reach for a new tool or why it even exists in the first place.

Studio-only features are NOT ignored

In fact, we spend a good deal of time combing through Blackmagic’s new approach to Resolve Studio, making it a more compelling purchase. We’ll walk through some of the niche Studio features that you wish they had 4 years ago, and finally introduced with 12.5.

You learn what the new Studio features are, how they’re different from previous releases, where to find those features – and how to use them.

Embrace it – Resolve does more than color correction

Mixing Light is a color correction website but your trainer, Pat Inhofer C.S.I. started his career as an editor. He knows his way around timelines. And since colorists are being pulled in as finishers, you need to understand the enhanced DaVinci Resolve timeline. And if you’re one of those colorists that like visual effects? We’ll take you through the basics of the Resolve – Fusion integration.

Patrick Inhofer, CSI

Learn from Patrick Inhofer, CSI—a professional colorist with 16 years color grading experience. His specialty is long-form projects, working under tight deadlines (and tighter budgets).

Created for Professionals, by Professionals is a website created by three professional colorists. Between us we’ve had several decades of experience working with editors, directors, cinematographers, producers and their assistants.

Don’t repeat our mistakes

We make mistakes. Usually with clients sitting next to us (often with hard deadlines hanging over us). Learn techniques and workflows to avoid our mistakes and make the craft of color grading much easier to execute.

We also succeed – learn useful insights we apply every day with paying clients on professional jobs. These techniques are born out of theory but they are battle-tested and colorist-approved.

We speak ‘color grading’ (in a way you can understand)

Having hearts of teachers, Team Mixing Light knows how to explain color grading in the language of the craft. This training is the culmination of our careers. Patrick, your teacher on this title, doesn’t hold back any tips or tricks. If he thinks some kernel of truth is essential to teach you – it gets taught.
