Overall Satisfaction with DaVinci Resolve

DaVinci Resolve is a feature-rich, high-end video editing/post-production software program. It offers the features and capabilities of competitors but it does so for free! It also has the industries best color grading. DaVinci Resolve will work with pretty much any medium or format that is out there. Did I mention it is free!?
  • Multiple formats and resolutions.
  • Industries best color grading.
  • Fast processing.
  • Fairly low system requirements.
  • The interface can be confusing.
  • Not as well integrated with outside software as some competitors.
  • Noise reduction only available in the paid version.
  • An incredible amount of features and quality for zero cost.
  • Low system requirements compared to competitors.
Adobe Premiere Pro is now a subscription-based software. The yearly cost is fairly high and keeps increasing. There is no option to pay once, you keep paying as long as you want to use it. I have been able to do everything I want/need to do in DaVinci Resolve, with no cost for the software!
Support seems to be knowledgeable and responsive.
