DaVinci Resolve is changing (again)

Let’s face it, there is no single piece of software upgraded more frequently or aggressively than DaVinci Resolve. The release of Resolve 14 is no different! There have been major changes – some under-the-hood and many in plain sight.

Do you have time to sift through the hefty user manual?

The Resolve user manual is the best in the business… but it’s over 1,200 pages long! If you’re not a professional then the user manual is overwhelming. If you are a professional then digging for changes in the manual is tedious. We’ve done the hard work for you. Just sit back, learn and start using Resolve more efficiently (and effectively) than ever!

Stay Current. Work faster.

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

This update course is perfect for existing (and busy) Resolve users

Whats New In DaVinci Resolve 14 assumes you have a good understanding of Resolve. We don’t just teach you the new wiz-bang obvious stuff. We put the new tools and workflows in context so you learn when to reach for that new tool or why it even exists in the first place.

And the movies are concise. Joey D’Anna packs in tons of information, provides the thinking behind the new changes and doesn’t waste words. You’ll be amazed at how quickly he communicates. The end result? This offline training is perfect for quick breaks, during your commute or during renders.

Studio-only features are NOT ignored

In fact, many of the most compelling new Resolve 14 features are only available to DaVinci Resolve Studio owners (and Studio is now a less expensive upgrade than many popular 3rd party plugins).

You learn the new Resolve 14 Studio features and how they’re different from previous releases. And you’ll look beyond the buttons and sliders, learning the situations they’re most useful (or when you might want to avoid them).

If you’ve been wondering if Studio is worth the upgrade? Then you’ll know by the end of this training.

Embrace it – Resolve does more than color correction

Mixing Light is a color correction website but your trainer, Joey D’Anna C.S.I. started his career as an editor and is now a full-time broadcast colorist and finisher (who is also a VFX wiz). He knows his way around timelines. And since colorists are being pulled in as finishers, he’s the perfect person to teach you the new DaVinci Resolve Edit Page features.

You’ll also get an introduction into the brand new audio mixing Fairlight Page. This page is still under active development by Blackmagic – but you’ll learn the layout and be prepared when it’s ready for prime time.
