Class Introduction

(energetic music) Hi there, I'm Casey Faris. I teach people how to use DaVinci Resolve all the time and this is one of those times and I'm really glad you're here. We're gonna be talking about the very basics of video editing using DaVinci Resolve. So even if you've never edited a video before, well, you're gonna be right at home, because we're gonna start at the basics. We're gonna go over kind of different shots and what they mean and I'm gonna take you through a step by step process on how to make basically any kind of video, because any video that you make really kind of has a similar workflow. So you're gonna learn some of the big concepts that you can actually apply to anything that you want to make. And we're gonna use a cooking metaphor to kind of start to understand how a story is put together inside of a video editor and how we can actually convey the things that we want to convey through a video. So again, if you're brand new to this process this is the perfect place to st...

art. We'll go over all of the basic concepts, as well as the interface of Resolve. So if this is your first day doing video or just your first day using Resolve, you're gonna be right at home. So without further ado, let's jump in. (mimics explosion)

This is a great class! Probably my favorite Creativelive class so far. I've been a fulltime photographer for 13 years now, I guess it's about time I get back into video. I love that Resolve has a free version to learn on. The pace of this class was perfect, can't wait to watch the rest of Casey's DaVinci classes.

Thanks to Casey Faris for the interesting study material. I have been looking for a creative life course for DaVinci Resolve for a long time and I am very happy that one has already been created on your platform. I look forward to the other pieces. Thanks again for the shared knowledge!


I've seen many DaVinci tutorials that seem to just make things more confusing but Casey's tutorial really took a simple step-by-step explanation to really show how powerful and yet simple it is to use Davinci. The tools Casey covered in this course gave me the confidence to edit the ton of videos I have collecting dust on my hard drive. Great job Casey and a great sense of dry corny humor...lolol highly recommended!!
