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.
