DaVinci Resolve is perfect for any video editing needs. It provides a lot of tools to control images, logos, text, transitions, as well as any other imported media that has been dragged to the timeline. It lets you create deliverables of very good quality and control every single detail from setup to final video export. It might not be the best option for a quick, simple video edit if the user does not how to use it because it will take a while to get on board on how to use it, even for simple edits.

Uniconverter is especially well suited to converting video files for import into video editing software, and for converting the edited files that have been output from the editing software, to whatever format/specs are needed.
- Comprehensive - It has video editing, motion graphics, audio, and export tools in one package. It's probably more than most people need, but you don't have to use all of the tools.
- Platform and format agnostic - I like that I can work on projects on Mac or PC, and there are regular updates for new codecs and cameras. You can edit pretty much any format with no compatibility worries.
- Price - They offer a free version which has most of the functionality. It's a great way to try before you buy and learn the tools. The final price is only $300 per license for the full product. It's a bargain for everything you get, and you don't feel like you're not getting your money's worth, even if you don't use all of the tools.
- Clear menus
- Good error checking

- Some areas of Resolve can leave inexperienced users feeling a bit handicapped. Multiple user sign-ins can be confusing, and determining where to place the database of users might need troubleshooting. The exporting workflow is a bit finicky and will need to be learned to use for even simple capabilities.
- Resolve is not friendly on a single screen editing workflow, and even worse on a laptop. Ideally, an editor has multiple screens in the first place, but because a colorist needs to see scopes and monitor, handling both on the same screen, along with all tools is a challenge. This software is best with more screens.
- While the NLE capability of Resolve makes for a quick editing workspace, my little experience with it leads me to the conclusion that unless someone desires a completely free alternative to other NLE software, Resolve is not your best friend. Other programs are better.
- I would like drag and drop -- where you just drag the file's icon on top of uniconverter's icon -- and that automatically opens the app, with the file in question ready to be converted/processed/etc.

DaVinci Resolve 1.3
Based on 2 answers
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.

DaVinci Resolve 3.1
Based on 5 answers
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.

Problem solved, but it took some time and I did not know in between if there would be a solution.

DaVinci Resolve has a comparable learning curve to the other video editing platforms that I have used. I like the DaVinci Resolve allows me to export videos for free and without a watermark, and still has just as many features as Adobe Premiere. It definitely renders faster than Blender and lets me have more control over precise timings.
Return on Investment
- DaVinci Resolve has resulted in a lot of happy customers. When comparing revisions to the visual style of projects, a client 9 times out of 10 prefers the look of a video from Resolve.
- DaVinci Resolve has had a positive effect on the users in our organization. Color-correction can be done in a fraction of the time with more accuracy, helping us feel less pressure when approaching deadlines.
- DaVinci Resolve has helped on our bottom line as we do not need to license multiple users, and often the free version of the software is more than enough to achieve the final product we are looking for.
