Dear Happy Editors,

Could someone please recommend an online course for learning DaVinci Resolve (16)? I've just started on it and it's clear that I need help. Not a beginner to NLEs here but a beginner in Resolve.

Many thanks,

Its still in beta right?

I am sure anything from v15 will get you moving.

There are three decent Resolve tutorials out there that I recommend:

Alexis Van Hurkman's Resolve Tutorials:

Patrick Inhofer's Mixing Light Resolve Tutorial:

Warren Eagles' FXPHD Resolve Tutorials:

I like all three for different reasons: Alexis' is very thorough and technical; Warren is very down-to-earth and provides practical examples; and Patrick goes into the basics and touches on non-obvious extras. Each does a very good job. I have not been as impressed by the other tutorials on the web, frequently done by people with dubious credentials.

Alexis' book is also very good:

Alexis Van Hurkman's Color Correction Handbook:

Patrick Inhofer's "Tao of Color" newsletter and website are also informative resources:

The LiftGammaGain website is also informative and has many hundreds of professional colorists as members:


The BMD Resolve v15 manual (also written by Alexis Van Hurkman) is also very informative, but you need time to go through all 2739 pages and try out every menu, every panel, every control, and every mode.

Also good are the following books:

Color Correction Handbook: Professional Techniques for Video and Cinema

The Art and Technique of Digital Color Correction

Digital Cinematography: Fundamentals, Tools, Techniques, and Workflows

Modern Post: Workflows and Techniques for Digital Filmmakers

Thank you very much for your long, detailed and extremely useful response to my post. It was not forwarded to me by the site - hence my lateness in responding.

In any case, thank you again,
