New Video Training for DaVinci Resolve 9

First, I want to express my sincere gratitude to everyone who’s been waiting so patiently. It’s a tough balance between waiting for DaVinci to nail everything down so my lessons are as up-to-date as possible, and getting things started in time for Ripple to be able to add the kind of polish and organization that makes their titles something special.

So here’s the announcement—Ripple Training has completed and made available my DaVinci Resolve 9 Core Training. Right now.

This is a completely new title, dramatically expanded to almost 12 hours of instruction covering nearly all of Resolve 9 from media ingest and project conform, through every grading tool that’s available, to final output for a variety of workflows. In total, 65 exhaustively chapter-marked and organized movies span the gamut of techniques that DaVinci Resolve 9 makes possible.

All new lessons on multi-node grading

This title is appropriate for both DaVinci Resolve and DaVinci Resolve Lite (the free version). And since both versions of Resolve now allow the use of unlimited nodes, this new title has all new lessons on multi-node grading for both practical and creative effect.

If you’re brand-new to Resolve, this series will walk you through all of the basics, and move you seamlessly from importing projects to making the grade. If you’re an old Resolve hand, Ripple Training’s fantastic chapter-marker organization makes it easy to zero in on just the features you’re interested in, and with 12 hours of content to choose from, you’re bound to learn something new. It’s like having a video handbook for using Resolve.

Each movie has extensive chapter markers, making it easy to find the information you’re looking for

I’ve worked hard to offer information and instruction that’s concise, yet clear to users of all levels of experience, that also includes interesting tips and techniques that I employ in my own work. I’m thrilled with how this title has turned out, and have to give everyone at Ripple my sincere thanks for doing such a great job of adding editorial polish and visual clarity via zoom-ins, graphics, and call-outs, to make every control and adjustment immediately obvious at every step of the way.

This entire collection of 65 movies is available at two resolutions—

  • 720p download ($79.99) for optimal playback on the iPad 1, 2, and mini
  • 1080p download ($89.99) for playback on desktops, laptops, and the iPad 3 and 4
  • If downloading is a hassle, you can also order the whole set, at either resolution, on a whiffy Ripple Training USB thumb drive ($99.99)

The audio and visual quality have been vastly improved over the prior version – the 1080 version in particular really looks fantastic – making for an extremely enjoyable watching experience.

We’re deliberately keeping this affordable, despite the expansion, so that no one has any excuse not to be able to add this to their reference collection, alongside the other great training resources that are available. So please, check out Ripple Training’s DaVinci Resolve 9 Core Training page, which has example movies, stills, and a complete table of contents. If you’re been wanting to learn Resolve, or have just upgraded to Resolve 9 and want to learn how to get more out of it, you can get fast answers and support this blog of mine by ordering your copy today.

Thank you for your support.

  1. Awesome Alexis! I’m pretty much broke now after moving to a new apartment, but coming payday I’m buying it! I need to prepare for my first big gig as a colorist, a documentary about Ann-Margret. Thanks for this, your book and your kind help via Twitter and the Cow, couldn’t have come this far without you!
