We're all shooting video now, which means at some point, we're all going to need some video editing software to get our finished product into shape for YouTube, social media, and the like.
Of course, there are always options like the heavyweights of video editing software, apps like perennial favorites Final Cut Pro, PowerDirector, and the granddaddy of the scene, the Adobe Creative Cloud anchor Premiere. But once you start looking at the price — like Premiere's costly $20.99 per month subscription offer — most shoppers will invariably start asking if any free apps can handle the job.
The answer is yes. And while programs like DaVinci Resolve may miss a few of the bells and whistles of its much pricier competitors, training like that found in The Comprehensive Video Editing in DaVinci Resolve 16 Bundle can help you accomplish virtually any editing task in this sneaky powerful — and free — app.
This collection of seven courses is led by instructor Kashif Altaf, a Master's degree holder who's taught thousands how to produce top-quality videos while earning an impressive 4.4 out of 5-star rating from nearly 2.500 reviewers.
Each segment of the seven-part course curriculum helps even first-time editors get a real handle on what DaVinci Resolve can do. After students get a feel for the app and its tools in Part 1: Basics of the CUT Page, we'll immediately jump in and start editing. While learning how to import, edit, render and deliver, students also get direction in Part 2: Workspace and Editing Tools about how to edit with the mindset of a professional editor, including the exact steps pros use to create top-quality work.
With knowledge about how to add music, graphics, and more in Part 3, the fourth step puts all those skills together as learners are challenged to create their own mini video project, using professional titles and tools to craft a final result that sparks with HD goodness.
Further coursework covers more specific topics like how to shoot for visual effects using a green screen as well as how to use color correction to affect the overall mood and tone of your work.
This expansive training package is a nearly $700 value, but right now, the whole collection is on sale for only $30.59.
