In recent years its userbase has grown and for anyone wondering whether it might be right for them, this short video will get you up and running in no time.
Many of us photographers are pivoting towards video and have been for some time. I'd always had interest in video production but the timing was never quite right and I didn't have any obvious market I could corner by learning those skills. Then, I did. Fortunately for me, I'd been familiar with video creation using Sony Vegas and Adobe Premiere Pro for a long times, just not shooting the footage myself, so I was able to get by. However, if that hadn't have been the case, I would have been behind before I'd even started. So, if you think that videography will become part of your skillset sooner or later, or you just want to see how it all works, this video is a great starting point that could have you creating videos on Da Vinci Resolve 16 almost immediately.
