I know Resolve is the go-to color correction platform. What training would you suggest for mastering the edit page? As a long time Avid editor, I'm wondering about the possibility of Resolve as a future replacement for Media Composer.

Thanks,

Slim

Here's one place to start-

Thanks Noah. I'd love to know what Mac OS is needed for current DaVinci. The website doesn't say and I don't want to go through a whole trial experiment to find out it won't work on my Mac OS 10.8.5. Looking for an alternative to the endless rental of Adobe, though.

[Robert Withers] "what Mac OS is needed for current DaVinci."

You mean (sic)--> macOS.

Depending on your GPU selection and number of cards in use, you should try to get to at least 10.12 Sierra. Yosemite is still fine. Sierra apparently re-opens the number and type of nVidia cards you can use. There are new patches to leverage into the 1080X Pascal cards -- but be aware that you will be required to match the nvidia drivers and CUDA with every update.

Remember, with BMD, there is no "trial experiment" Download the free version of the software and work with it. Use it for a week, a month, or a year. If you like it and want some of the other "pro" options, then buy it, for less than a year of Avid or Adobe.

If you don't like it, remove if from your computer. Its not really a taxing experience on your part to see if it works for you and your system.

(well there is the 5 min download, and the 3 min install times)

Check out VFXtraining.com. We currently have a color correction course available for resolve 14 and will be offering at least 2 more courses, one of which will be an editing and finishing course to run in June 2017

Alexis Van Hurkman (who wrote the Resolve manual) has a very good series of Resolve 12 & 12.5 editing tutorials on Ripple Training:

http://www.rippletraining.com/product-category/davinci-resolve-tutorials/

I would also recommend Mixing Light as having several different series of tutorials at different levels of expertise:

https://mixinglight.com/

Paul Saccone from Blackmagic Design also has an excellent book on editing on Resolve 12.5, 90% of which is applicable to Resolve 14:

https://www.amazon.com/Definitive-Editing-DaVinci-Blackmagic-Learning/dp/09...

The free Resolve manual also has hundreds of pages on importing, conforming, and editing.
