Introduction to DaVinci Resolve [In-Person]

Starts March 5

(Rescheduled) 2 sessions: Saturday-Sunday, March 5-6, 10am-4pm

This hands-on beginning level class will get you started with the free and powerful DaVinci Resolve software for Mac, PC, and Linux. Learn how it works and why it has been a top choice in post-production for many years. In our two sessions you’ll learn how to set up projects, utilize the new Cut Page, assemble an Edit, work with media, tweak both color and sound, and export your finished projects. You may bring your own footage to use in the class. iMacs provided; students are welcome to bring laptops.

DaVinci Resolve is available in both free and paid versions. Download here.
