Why I Edited My Feature Film on DaVinci Resolve
I’ve been editing features, shorts, commercial, and everything else shot on film or video for over 20 years. Editing on almost every non-linear editing system you can imagine I know what I want and like in an NLE. When it came time to edit my directorial feature film debut, This is Meg, I knew my good old Final Cut Pro 7 wouldn’t cut it.
So I decide to give Davinci Resolve 12.5 a try. I’ve been color grading on DaVinci Resolve for years and always jumped over the “edit tab” on my way to the color tab. Once version 12 came out I was blown away. So powerful, so intuitive and it just plain worked! I have to tell you,
“DaVinci Resolve is what Final Cut X should’ve been.”
The good folks over at Blackmagic Design invited me to speak at the Slamdance Film Festival 2017 to discuss my experience editing, color grading and finishing on Davinci Resolve. Enjoy!
