We use it in standard trainings for creators. We also use it for exceptions training where a certain concept is either more difficult for some creators to grasp, or too nascent yet and needs a more focused visual explanation.

Resolve is great and offers so many neat features, like camera tracking, expansive control over your image's color, and an amazing noise reduction plugin. This is a great option for coloring, and I'd recommend most production teams looking for a robust coloring software to look into Resolve and give it a go. It's worth it, even though you'll have to break away from working in Premiere Pro, etc.If you don't have the money to pay for the full version, it might be better to just use the free version (which is still great. It's a steal honestly) and perhaps down the road pay for the full thing.

Pros

Animoto

  • Helps any audience Tell Their Story: A handful of still pics can be uploaded, then in just a few clicks you can add music, choose a theme, tweak as needed: done!
  • Visually augments the creative process of defining exactly the message marketing is looking to capture. While words can mean different things to different people, visuals are a very effective communication tool. Animoto lets you test, change, test again and learn so much more about your audience in the process.
  • Our "Who I Am" use of Animoto that drove a higher rate of engagement with our millennial audience that we're challenged with defining the answer to that question.
  • Endless applications in every division: Product Engineering, who want to design their GoToMarket strategy, HR who would use it in a Promotion/Employee Awards program or Training Departments.

  • DaVinci Resolve does color correction via masking really well. The mask tracking feature is much faster and accurate than similar software applications. These are strengths for DaVinci Resolve, as they appeal to both the professional and amateur editor.
  • DaVinci Resolve's free version is extremely robust. This means that anyone who is unsure about the software can really do an in-depth test run with the majority of features, and evaluate if it is for them before making a purchase.
  • DaVinci Resolve is user-friendly. It's extremely easy to adjust default settings and customize your fades, transitions, etc. exactly how you want them, rather than having to adjust each time you add them to the timeline. This is a strength for Resolve, as it leaves users feeling more empowered and saves time.

Cons

Animoto

  • Great visual tool that lets you intelligently communicate what you are seeking to explain to your audience. More features I might suggest would be anything that makes it more interactive with the viewer in real-time.
  • For the price , it is a great deal as is.

  • The interface can be confusing.
  • Not as well integrated with outside software as some competitors.
  • Noise reduction only available in the paid version.

Da Vinci Resolve is up there amongst the big, professional video editing packages like Apple's FinalCutPro and Adobe Premier Pro. To just be included in this league, the package needs to have a plethora of features that the common man does not need. In essence, this overwhelming amount of features makes the product tricky to learn, but once you have the hang of it, it is a dream.

Not only do they have classes available in Los Angeles, but they'll also allow you to work from home with the manual and demo materials, and then let you test out to get a certification. They get back to you quickly when you email, and they've got a "family" approach to customer service, they make you feel like you're important to them.

Alternatives Considered

Animoto

We had invested in making our own videos using YouTube, and even Camtasia. But they were still us interpreting on behalf of our audience which took forever. Once we found Animoto, it was so much easier to upload the pics our audience would send us. From there we had a 100% positive response, that we had indeed captured what they were trying to say.

For a small business, DaVinci's price point (free / $300) makes it a strong competitor to Adobe Premiere. FCP costs roughly the same, but then DaVinci's color correction is better. If you do not need all the color correction options, then even the free version could be an option.

Return on Investment

Animoto

  • Positive as it is so simple to use, and even helps discover where a creative student would benefit far more with a more focused visual.
  • Positive as it is - seriously easy to drop in content and create a video short on any topic, in literally minutes!

  • The ROI was well worth it. Our videos have never looked better.
  • Color Correction has also taken us less time than before. It's been fantastic.
  • Making videos faster and better looking is a definite win-win!
