With the final blow to Final Cut Pro 7, some old time users (some may call them dinosaurs, but we gotta love em) may be wondering where to go next? The pricing and features of Resolve 14 definitely make it an attractive option. Blackmagic Design has created a video to illustrate how painless a transition into their ecosystem can be for FCP users.
The video outlines the similarities between editing in the two NLEs and introduces many of DaVinci Resolve 14’s new features. It also includes a very quick introduction to DaVinci Resolve 14’s color grading and audio editing capabilities for those editors that are interested in other aspects of the post process. Since DaVinci Resolve 14 can import timelines from FCP7, shares many of the same keyboard shortcuts, uses a similar editing and trimming model, and is available in a free version, it’s a good alternative for editors needing to make the change from FCP7.
