Most Helpful Reviews
Advanced Tools at a great price! - This app is not for the faint of heart. If you are new to video editing/color correction it will be a steep learning curve. I suggest learning iMovie, Final Cut Pro X or Adobe Premiere Pro, and then this. Blackmagic has done something amazing here. You can download a free version that has nearly every feature available, learn it, and then upgrade to this paid version when you become a full-time professional. They've done a good job over the last couple years at simplfying the interface and adding lots of editing features. My only complaints are that the settings and preference menus are overly complicated and there are many redunancies found in there. Plus Final Cut Pro X is still better at organizing your clips within the app with keyword ranges and smart collections and its magnetic timeline is a lot slicker and faster than DaVinci Resolve's. But with all of its amazing color grading tools Resolve is a great place to send your Final Cut Pro X projects for finishing.
BUYER BEWARE - NOT a the full featured version. Key features like OpenFX are not available on the App Store version of Resolve. In other words, the ability to use third party plugins is missing. Blackmagic support confirmed, indicating that development of the App Store version was different from development of their version, and the App Store version is missing some features. Their suggestion: buy their $999 version. Based on my experience and needs, most should stick to the free version. If you do need the full-featured version, take the hit and spend the extra $500.
