Why I Edited My Feature on DaVinci Resolve


Kevin27 November 2018

You understand the steps as he goes so you can memorize the moves and tabs to find. I've been a professional editor over 15 years and have studied many courses with instructors. This is one teacher that really has the knowledge and understanding on how to teach clearly.

Jonathan14 November 2018

It is not a good class for total beginners since he just explains feature after feature. Hard to get a mental foothold and figure out what matters without excises. Also, it is for an older version of davinci resolve

Shannon11 April 2018

Incomplete course. Support files are not attached. You need to open the links, download software to then be able to download the files from the websites, all before you even begin learning. I have not progressed because the instructor did not respond to my questions on Q&A, so I am asking for a refund.

Thom16 February 2018

I liked the explanations and walkthroughs of the features. I think a little more hands-on or perhaps "work-alongs" could be a great leap toward 5+++ Stars. I appreciated the bonus' provided and will likely return to review this material as there is so much to enjoy even at this foundational level. Thank you- your work and efforts are appreciated. Best moving forward!

After trying Davinci Resolve myself it's nice to have simple, quick validation as to what I've learned along with simple and well-explained, well-paced tips.

Abram6 December 2017

Class was good, if your just beginning with DaVinci Resolve, perfect course for you. Now if you already played around with it already, I'd skip this course. While I learned some good tips and tricks to do some things, I was looking for a more in depth course how to do more in depth things like custom transitions and go through more of the options more thoroughly. But overall great course, I would buy a more in depth advanced tutorial from this instructor if ever one came available.
