For some reason, everything always happens while I’m traveling.
After a long delay due to many unexpected happenings last fall, I’m happy to announce that my first video training title for DaVinci Resolve is now available from Ripple Training. It’s a seven hour overview covering every aspect of Resolve functionality, from project import, through the myriad grading tools Resolve provides, and finishing with Resolve’s flexible methods for outputting your project.
While I started out intending to do a “quick rundown” of how to use Resolve, the depth and breadth of the application forced me to expand what I was doing. After all, I didn’t want anyone to miss out on any of Resolve’s many features for making a colorist’s life easier.
As a result, the title consists of 53 individual movies, each covering short, specific topics. If you’ve already been using Resolve for a while, this makes it easy to focus on just those features that interest you. Ripple did a great job editing, indexing, and finessing the media to make the workings of the interface clear to see and easy to follow.
Lastly, I designed the lessons so that you can download the free (as in beer) DaVinci Lite version of the application from Blackmagic Designs support, then download the media I use from Ripple (instructions are included), and follow along for no extra money. And the free Resolve Lite now runs on either OS X or Windows, so you can follow along no matter what your platform.
So please, check it out. It’s like hanging out with me all day for $79 US bucks. That’s less then three martinis in Oslo, and there’s no hangover.
There are sample movies, a topic outline, and more at the Ripple Training web site.
