Este foi meu primeiro curso de DaVinci Resolve. Tenho em torno de 6 meses de prática com o software (autodidata) e devido a isso não tive um aproveitamento muito grande. Talvez no meu caso seria melhor ter procurado um curso um pouco mais adiantado. Mas, acredito que o curso cumpre muito bem aquilo que se propõe a cumprir.

was maybe a bit quick for someone who hasn't had any experience with this software, but otherwise very informative!

Wow, just Wow! This is an amazing course! I'm still working through it however I've already learned enough tips & tricks to more than justify the price! The instructor clearly knows his stuff and gets to the point QUICKLY! I'm used to other courses where I can multi-task and have things on in the background because they pace is so slow. This course you really need to pay attention to as the tips are coming at you left, right and center! Davinci Resolve is an amazing tool and, due to this course, I'll now be able to use so many more features quickly and easily! Plan to take notes as there are great tips throughout the course!
