The Course is good. You have given title as DR16 but the videos are on DR15. Need to provide good examples on transitions. My expectation is after the course completion I should be able to edit a cinematic video,but this course is not up to my expectation. We need more cinematic transitions,tips and techniques.
Clear and concise. I've already been using this software for a little bit for personal projects, nice to have a lot of the things I missed explained. It will become even quicker to use, now.
I loved this course. The material was presented clearly and at a good and balanced pace making it very easy to follow along. I would have like to see a section on explaining how to use tracking in the color correction section. In addition, for those of us who don't like to use in camera sharpening, it would be nice to see a more detailed explanation of how to properly sharpen one's videos. Sharpening was briefly touched upon when describing the blur tab but no mention was made of the sharpening tab itself. Overall, a very good course. I recommend it very highly.
While the Instructor does have an accent, he is measured, clear and very easily understood. I am presently enjoying the initial lessons so far. Additional comment: it would be nice if you provided some saved project, particularly for the green screen example
Overall I found this course pretty useful. Some minor issues, the course name says "Resolve 16" however most of the lessons are done with version 15. One area where this caused an issue for me was with video stabilizer which seems was moved in version 16. Only a single quiz in the entire course which was in one of the early sections that seemed pretty irrelevant. They could have been more useful if given in the other sections. While the instructor was very knowledgeable and easy to understand, he was not the same instructor used in the free preview video. I would expect the free preview video to show exactly what I'm going to get in the course before deciding to purchase.
This course is introduced by a different presenter....non English background person continues course....I am not impressed...as I would not have purchased....as its a long time to listen to someone who has a thick indian accent...….
The course has been a great help in understanding and using Davinci Resolve. Gone from a complete beginner to getting good usable videos.
I do not recommend you to choose this course, it is very very basic , it shows that the teacher does not know how to teach the software. in addition we lie to you about the duration of the course, the real duration is 7 hours and the rest is just a copy / paste of several videos (2hr 32min) that you have already watched in previous parts of the cours under the pretext that it is a summary (are you guys serious !!). in addition there is a part ( 3hrs 27min) in which we teach you a software that has nothing to do with Davinci Resolve. So my advice is to save your money for another course. Hi Kashif, Let me just respond to a few points in your reaction You watched 100% of the course. If it was so useless as you said, you wouldn't 'waste' so many hours to watch every single lesson I didn’t watch 100% of the course, I just watched the parts about Davinci Resolve. For the section (summary and Videoscibe software), I just placed the cursor at the beginning of each video in the section then two seconds after I placed it at the end of the video that’s why your system thought that I watched the whole video. I don’t waste my time looking at a summary which is only a copy / paste of previous videos (by the way, I see that you deleted this part of the course and it is no longer available, good choice!). I did the same thing with the “Videoscribe” part. why did i do that? because when I started using the course, the 30 days for a possible refund had already passed. so I said to myself: Seeing that I bought this course and I cannot cancel my purchase, I will tray to learn something and that's when I discovered all the negatives about this course. if you were expecting to learn to create a Hollywood Blockbuster movie, sorry I don't teach that I was just expecting to learn how to edit with Davinci Resolve but all I’ve seen in most videos is someone who says "this button does this, this button does that ...". and let me just inform you that we can not create a Hollywood Blockbuster with an editing software, it's more complicated than that (lighting, production design, gear, actors performance ...) so don't be sorry, you are not the only one who can't teach how to create a Hollywood Blockbuster with an editing software ?. If you had focused on learning instead of counting minutes of different sections and looking for every single fault possible False, I did not count the minutes of different sections, the duration of each section is mentioned on the site so no need to count them. And that's not the problem, the problem is to include sections that have nothing to do with learning Davinci Resolve (Videoscribe) in a Davinci Resolve course, or to include a pseudo summary (curious to know why you did not mention anything about this summary in your answer !!) In addition, here we are talking about the content of your course and not about my personality, my behavior or my way of learning. So talking about me, will not remove the negative points that are in your course (especially that, all what you know about me is only my pseudonym on the Udemy site). So please only talk about the content of your course. Regarding the other software training in the end, please read the title of that section, it says 'Bonus Material', and its about creating and editing Whiteboard Animation Videos, highly related to Video Creation and Editing here I agree with you, it was my fault for not reading, in detail, the content of the section. why didn't i do it? because I did not imagine that you are going to include a section that talks about other software that has no relation to the title of the course which is (learn Davinci Resolve) and in addition you have included the duration of this section ( 3h) in the total duration of the course. yes Videoscribe has a relation with video creation and editing but it has no relation with the title and the purpose of your course which is learning Davinci resolve. I am not against the fact that you include videos that talk about other software but when you do it, please include the right information in the course description so as not to cause confusion (instead of saying 13 hour lesson of Davinci Resolve, say 7 hours of Davinci Resolve lessons + 2.5 hours of summary which consists of videos which are already included in the 7 hours of the previous section + 3.5 hours of lessons from Videoscribe software) Overall, I can see where you're coming from, so I am replying without any sugar coating. Please tell me what do you mean by (I can see where you’re coming from) . Finally, let me clarify one thing, when I said that you don’t master Davinci Resolve, in fact I meant that you don’t know how to teach (approach) Davinci resolve. Last thing, English is not my mother language, so sorry for any mistakes. Thank you.
I have been using DaVinci Resolve for a long time and I feel refreshed on my knowledge thus far. I was hoping to take my skills further but I don't think I have reached that material yet so I can't say anything on that. For a beginner, I can see this course being a game changer. The narration is clear and to the point. The swallowing sound, however, makes me scream inside. Its not a pleasant sound but it doesn't deter from my experience. Just thought I would throw that out there, though.
Very clear and precise instructions. The instructor is going in a very relaxed easy manner. Looking forward to go deep in the course. Thanks for these great tutorials.
Very helpful course for beginners, he didn't miss to explain any video editing terms or jargon a beginner may not be familiar with, and the pace is perfect for me.
yes this program is a good match thus far. I'm only into a few lessons. the instructor is clear and he's easy to follow. I'm enjoying myself!
If you are wanting to learn Davinchi this is an excellent course to learn the layout and to create a video comp easy to follow along and clear instructions
I just started, but it seems like it's going to explain everything at a beginner level, which is exactly what I need. Thanks!
It seems that the teacher learned the topic just few days before it was filmed. Poor presentation and knowledge. It`s better to use Youtube or software`s own tutorial to learn the topic better.
