DaVinci Resolve is a great program, especially regarding that 99% of the features you need are free. The only thing I stumbled over was the 3D camera tracker in Fusion. It is under constant development and although I didn't pay, the e-mail customer service always replies within 24h. See More
Very fast and efficient. Coming from 3D modeling, texturing, animation, and rendering software, I am used to having to learn thousands of different tools. I have never seen NLE related software this complex yet easy to use. It even adjusts the interface for 4K monitors so you can read and see icons. Great real-time preview with complex effects assisted by hardware. Completely free with no strings attached. Great for amateurs and the majority of small studio commercial work but the pros will want the Studio version for $299. The price is ridiculously low for professionals who can recoup the cost (and than some) in a single small project. Studio adds full GPU support and many advanced features for the most demanding projects. See More
Vas Patibandla's Experience
Davinci Resolve is updated regularly and offers a completely free version that includes almost every needed feature! The paid version is only $299, or comes free with Black Magic cameras, and includes installation on two CPUs as well as unlimited updates. The program not only included the Resolve Color Grading software but features Fusion, one of the premiere studio level compositing and effects packages and Fairlight, a complete DAW! The integration of the programs is completely seamless, just click a tab at the bottom of the workspace. A full featured and intuitive delivery/output rendering program is fully integrated. See More
Resolves great Hollywood reputation comes from colour grading and since then it only improved. It includes qualifier, masks, tracking of masks, (of course) color-wheels, curves, LUTs, OpenFX and so much more. You don't need any plugins. See More
The cost of the adobe system over a 3 year span is significantly higher than other comparable editors. Their licensing for schools is particularly problematic as updates aren't available for site licenses in a timely manner, leaving us with compatibility issues with students using their own licenses at home.

Adobe licensing isn't mentioned as a con but should be. The cost of the adobe system over a 3 year span is significantly higher than other comparable editors. Their licensing for schools is particularly problematic as updates aren't available for site licenses in a timely manner, leaving us with compatibility issues with students using their own licenses at home.

This program is made to interact very well with the other Adobe production apps like After Effects, SpeedGrade, Soundbooth, Photoshop and others. Adobe programs can dynamically link with each other, so when an update occurs in Premiere it will update in other software accordingly. See More
Ensures that the latest version of the software is always installed. Allows saving preferences (such as workspace layout and keyboard shortcuts) in the cloud, so the preferences can be loaded on a different machine. Users can even download personal settings from each other. See More
Virtual Studio Technology (VST) is a software interface that integrates software audio synthesizer and effect plugins with audio editors and hard-disk recording systems. VST and similar technologies use digital signal processing to simulate traditional recording studio hardware in software. Thousands of plugins exist, both commercial and freeware, and a large number of audio applications support VST. See More
