In this three-day course, you’ll get a thorough overview of the interface, tools, features, and production flow for DaVinci Resolve. Students will understand how to balance, create continuity and develop styles and looks which bring mood and tone to moving images and the storyline. Using hands-on lessons, you’ll learn the techniques used by professionals when cutting drama, documentary, music videos and action scenes. You’ll also learn to build eye-catching composites and visual effects in both the Edit Page and the new Fusion page, before learning how best to mix your audio in the Fairlight page and delivering your final film for digital cinema, broadcast TV or streaming services such as Netflix.
