Is Resolve’s Cut Page mystifying or illogical?
DaVinci Resolve Fundamentals 102:
Learning To Edit On Resolve’s Cut Page
& Speed Editor
Does editing in the Cut Page feel overly difficult and exhausting, or does it make no sense? This Course teaches the fundamentals of non-linear editing on the Cut Page – plus how to ‘up your game’ with the Blackmagic Speed Editor. When completed, you will worry less about the software and focus on bringing your stories to life.
Getting Started with the Cut Page & Speed Editor
Resolve’s Cut Page has a few fundamentally strange behaviors. If you’re new to video editing, the differences between editing commands can make little sense. Experienced editors feel like the Cut Page is dumbed down and actively working against them.
This Course helps newcomers overcome their initial struggles and experienced pros understand that the Cut Page’s simplicity makes it much more powerful than they imagined. Plus, learn how the add-on Blackmagic Speed Editor is game-changing fast for pulling your stories together – no matter your experience.
