DaVinci Resolve has been renown for its color grading capabilities for while, and they made me one happy freeloader when they started offering a pared-down version of their software at no cost. But, one major thing DaVinci lacked was the total control of a non-lineal editor. Now, with the upcoming release of DaVinci Resolve 12, you get the best of both worlds.

For the Budget Filmmaker

This may just be the answer you have looking for. DaVinci Resolve Lite – the free version of their software – is lacking a few features from their flagship program. However, these features basically revolve around noise reduction, motion blurring, and 3D film editing. So, if have enough 3D in your life and don’t mind a little noise here and there, DR Lite may be just the thing for you.

DaVinci Resolve 12 is slated for release in July 2015 and will be available in the standard version for $995 or Lite for free…and, frankly, you can’t beat free (although I sure wish someone would try).

    I tried DR 11 for a recent video project just to see how it went. After Apple ruined the FCP interface DR seems to have taken the FCP 7.0 interface I learned on and ran with it. I was able to jump in and do all the basics right away without having to read anything or watch any tutorials. Its not quite a full fledged editor, but its good enough for 90% of what anyone needs. Maybe 12.0 will get closer to being full on professional.

    I wouldn’t hesitate to use DaVinci for editing projects, especially on a budget.
