Our DaVinci Resolve Fundamentals series gets you working confidently and focusing on your work

We’ve spent a decade onboarding creative professionals to DaVinci Resolve.

Resolve keeps getting more powerful and complex at a relentless pace. Mixing Light has spent a decade helping others make sense of it. The secret is first to learn the foundations that have supported the software for years – and then you’ll move on to the sexy features confidently.

Begin with the Fundamentals.

Resolve has a particular way of working. Resolve’s many interdependent features are best learned in a step-by-step, guided approach. But the app is so big you must learn it in bite-sized pieces. That’s how our training courses are designed.

Then branch out to specific topics.

Once you’ve learned the fundamentals, you’re ready to dig deeper using online tutorials, including Mixing Light’s ever-growing 1,100+ Insights Tutorial Library.

Designed for editors and colorists, this course takes a solution-based approach to explore DaVinci Resolve, focusing on problems that can be solved in many ways.

All-Access Accelerator includes everything in a Premium Membership, plus it gives you INSTANT access to all Resolve Fundamentals courses AND both Practice Projects. Plus, All-Access is a 12-month, non-recurring membership. It is NOT a subscription.

Since All-Access Accelerator members get instant access to EVERY Resolve Fundamentals course, they don’t accrue credits to access Courses.

If you’re a facility or production company interested in an All-Access Accelerator Membership (that is non-renewing), contact us and ask. We will custom-quote it for you (with generous discounts for bulk memberships). The only difference is the Corporate version doesn’t include Practice Projects. Be sure to specify the number of people who will get accounts (which can be re-assigned at any time).

Our membership software prevents proration (discounting) when moving between subscription and non-subscription memberships. Therefore, any time remaining on current recurring memberships will be lost. Before cross-grading, think carefully. Members can always check billing details for the renewal date of their current membership from the My Account page.

After your 12-month membership ends, you will lose access to the Courses, Insights Library, Practice Projects, and Forum. This is no automatic renewal!

There are a ton of materials you will have downloaded at the end of your All-Access term. They are yours to keep! But you will still be bound by Mixing Light’s Terms of Service regarding those assets (primarily, they are only for your personal use and can not be distributed in any manner – including among classrooms, corporate intranets, or shared/uploaded online).

Anything already purchased, you will retain access after this membership level expires.
