I made a fake trailer to learn Davinci Resolve (what editor do you use ?)

So i recently switched from Shotcut to Davinci Resolve, and i really like it so much :slight_smile:

It’s quite easy to use after a few tutorials ! The workflow is quite fast in my opinion :smiley: .

I wanted to try to use it for something more ambitious than my usual jam videos, so i made a sort of fake movie Trailer. That would definitively have been impossible in my old editor !

What editor do you personally use ? Have you tried Davinci ?


Cool! I use DaVinci Resolve too, I just use for fun VCV vids though, nothing too fancy.

Well, I still use premiere from adobe because it was the software that we used in college for video editing. But I also have DaVinci installed and it’s on my “to buy” list. DaVinci has great potential and it’s definitely a top quality video editor. And the license is not that expensive. I was hoping that the team from Affinity would develop some software for video also because their photo/design software are amazing. But yeah, right now, for video editing, my “vote” will go to DaVinci also.

I used Davinci Resolve too, sometimes for mixing and mastering but mainly for creating abstract videos. I love node based workflows once you get over the initial learning curve. I also use Apple Motion and Chaotica HD.

I gave Resolve a try few years ago, but gave up immediately, 'cause of my lazyness :hear_no_evil:

i still use Kdenlive…and i cannot recommend it at all! joke obv, but sometimes it crashes both on linux and win…that’s ok for some very basic stuff and I will keep using it until i need something better, sure I will go for Resolve

btw, nice montage :beers:

I haven’t touched the node stuff yet, but it looks powerful !

Thanks :blush: !

I haven’t actually edited video in a while but when I do video stuff I use an out of date version of Blender. It’s hard to use and I’m not sure I’d recommend it but I’m set in my ways.

I’ve used Davinci about two years ago,

but when I tried to install it on my new laptop some months ago I couldn’t get it up running. I tried to search for solutions, but didn’t find any :unamused:

So now I’m using a cheap version of Magix that came with a magazine.

btw. I’m on Win10, if any of you could give me some hints, hoew I could get it working, I would like to try it again.

If I ever get around to video I’m planning on using Premiere Rush, because it looks super easy.
