About DaVinci Resolve:
- Software Backgrounder:
DaVinci Reolve from BlackMagic Design happens to be the worlds leading System for Colour Correction and Colour Grading.
DaVinci Systems introduced its first Colour Correction System called The Wiz back in the early 1980s and it was a hardware oriented Analogue Colour Correction System.
In the mid 80s DaVinci introduced its popular Colour Correction System called DaVinci Classic which was a combination of a Computer and Hardware Systems and an External Control Unit. This was a phenomenal hit in the Television and Feature Film Industry.
DaVinci Renascence soon followed in the early 90s with better Hardware and Computer Systems as it was available back in those days. Colour processing still was done in an Analogue method.
Mid 90s saw the introduction of DaVinci Resolve Renascence 888, significant improvement being addition of Digital Colour Processing over Analogue Colour Processing.
Late 90s saw the introduction of DaVinci Resolve 2k and 2K Plus which addressed the requirement of Colour correction of High Definition Video and works with 2k resolution. This resembled the present day working conditions.
Meanwhile DaVinci Systems was taken over by BlackMagic Design and when the DaVinci Resolve was launched in early 2000s it was soon to set path for a Next Generation Colour Correction and Colour Grading System that will become the leader among Colour Correction and Colour Grading Systems worldwide.
Applications and Usage:
DaVinci Resolve happens to be the forerunner among feature film colouring and colour grading software available in the marketplace today. It it the most widely used colouring software used for colouring and colour grading of feature films worldwide. The main advantage of this software other than having the most advanced colour correction suits is that its compatible with EDLs of the leading Non Linear Edit Systems in the world like Final cut, Avid, Première Pro.
DaVinci Resolved when it was launched as a Software platform in 2004 moving away from Hardware and Analogue Colour Correction of the 1980s and 1990s the software was mainly developed keeping colouring and colour grading in mind. But gradually over a decade it has evolved to become a full fledged Post Production suite which encompass the fields of Non Linear Editing alongside Colour Grading and Colour Correction which happens to be its core functionality. In the Non Linear Editing sphere it has gained immense mileage being able to incorporate advanced features like Multicam Editing, Special Effects Transitions, Open FX Video Effects, Video Titling.
Its quite evident in the coming years DaVinci Resolve will stand out on its own as a leader in the post production industry which will encompass the field of Video Editing as well.
Software Architecture and System Requirements:
DaVinci Resolve happens to be the most resource intensive software programme available out there when it comes to the field of Audio and Video so careful considerations should be made before running DaVinci Resolve. Unlike the DaVinci Lite, DaVinci resolve has some dedicated Hardware AddOns and the main unit happens to be the Resolve Control Interface. Other than the proprietary hardware console you need professional Hi Rez Dual Monitor Display Systems to support your work flow. To have a proper working comfort level with DaVinci Resolve you can’t depend on traditional Magnetic Hard Drives that are used in Desktops. You need to install Solid State Disc Hard Drives or have access to powerful NAS or powerful SAN systems. If you run on traditional Hard Drives the speed will be not sufficient enough to give you real time preview and playback of the RAW files on which you will be working on.
Other than having SSD as HDD is absolutely important to have a GPU with over 2GB of Memory. You will be able to work with 4K files if you have 4GB GPU memory. When it comes to the CPU, you will have a better performance with dual CPU than computers with single CPUs. When it comes to RAM its absolutely important that you have minimum 16GB RAM installed.

I have been in the field of Film Editing in Non Linear Edit Systems for quite some time and so far used the colouring plug-ins that come with the Editors. I always heard of people working on DaVinci Resolve but never manage to get time to learn in. Recently I came across this DaVinci Lite and decided to give it a try. I was finding it little uncomfortable to start with and felt I can do with some training so took up this one. It has so far explained very nicely all the interface and internal workings of the software so that my confusion has got cleared regarding this Resolve. So now am more DaVinci Resolve confident than before.
Colours always fascinated me and and so did film making and photography. My initial passion for photography gradually took a turn towards film making and specially the post production and colouring. We all know when it comes to colouring and colour grading in the professional film making scenario…it is what every colourist banks on DaVinci Resolve. So why not me? Its just that I did not have any formal training on Resolve so was having little problems working with DaVinci Resolve Lite but when I undertook this course all my confusion and doubts got vanished and I am more confident of working with DaVinci Reesolve now. If colours and colouring fascinates you then this is a software you must learn and to learn it this course will help you.

But as its very much different from usual Non Linear Editors and Colouring Tools out there and much more advanced when it comes to colouring it certainly not a very easy thing to learn by yourself. We all can do with a little help from someone and that is exactly what this course is all about. A little help to understand the powerful features of DaVinci Resolve – the most popular colouring programme out there.
When I first download the Resolve software I was very hesitant and unsure about what to do with the software and how to go about it. I downloaded the Lite version to test it in my system. I did find it lil advanced at start for an amateur like me. I have heard of Resolve from many a professional friends of mine who are associated with the film industry. I am interested in post production and colouring and colour grading fascinates me so wanted to try this tool. So when I saw this course I enrolled for it and since then I have started to learn DaVinci Resolve and so far it has been a pleasant journey.
