I agree that the learning curve for Davinci Resolve is moderately steep especially for beginners to begin with. However, it is FREE! which means you can have all the time in the world to master this world class NLE instead of paying subscription while figuring out with tutorials for other video editors. The free version is powerful enough even for professional video editors making Hollywood graded videos! The studio version is totally worth the upgrade especially now, for a limited time, they are bundling with a speed editor which greatly reduce your work load.
I suspect the 1/10 negative ratings below are coming from competitors trying to put this amazing software down without giving proper justification.

Resolve is not for amateurs.
This editor can handle your RAW video (yes, one DNG per frame) and ACES profiles for your VFX.
If you don't get what it means, go play with other stuff and pay monthly fees while waiting for "Analyzing" and Media Encoder renders.
How do I know? I've been trained professionally on both Adobe and Resolve.
I ended buying a license for my Linux beast.
Resolve is serious stuff from makers of PRO cameras and production gears.

I can't understand the negative comment, It works great for me! True I am NOT a beginner, in fact as a retired electronics engineer I have been around Video Editors since they we nothing more than 2 beta cam players and a beta cam recorder doing cut edits with 5 second pre-roll just to get the tapes in sync. Since I retired about 15 years ago I have continued to use NLE's as a hobby and am familiar with most common versions, except Adobe's PP, I just never liked it but that's just my personal taste. So far, and I've been using DaVinci Resolve since Ver.14, I find it amazing.

It can be intimidating for a beginner and there are so many hidden features that I am sure even experts get confused sometimes. I have had a few crashes, but upon investigation it is usually related to hardware rather than the software itself. One common issue is using an external SSD as the scratch disk, if it does not respond instantaneously it can cause a crash.

I currently use a 2017 iMac 3.4 GHz i5 with a 1TB Fusion drive and 48Gb RAM which (apart from the RAM) is nothing special. I edit mostly 4K footage and downsample to 1080p for output. If I include and still images in a project then I may have LR and PS open as well and I still enjoy smooth playback.

As to Value for Money... well, if you don't need the additional effects and codec's of the Studio version you can't get much cheaper than FREE!

I have no idea why it's getting so much hate on here vs everywhere else online. I can't tell if they're uneducated or trolls

DR16 has been so smooth vs Premiere Pro. I've completed documentaries, youtube videos and music videos without any issues. It's NLE abilities are great now, and I'm able to edit way faster in this vs everything else I've tried (Hitfilm, FCPX and PP - which l still own/pay for monthly but don't use since going all in on DR)

The fact that they update so often, is remarkable (heck even yesterday they just dropped ANOTHER update). Sure there is bug reports, every piece of software has them, and there's also the fact that a lot of people don't update their graphic drivers, or even provide good logs. I've personally had a 95% flawless experience with all the tools inside the app, although I'm still not a huge fan of Fusion vs After Effects.

I bought the studio version, because I truly see the value in BlackMagic. The free version is fantastic too, but I don't pick software based on price, I pick it based on features, updates, stability, ease of use and the team behind it - all of which are top notch from Black Magic.

As for people saying the support is bad. That's incorrect. I had a bug which alerted the team, who reached out to be personally by email and then released a fix. I've also had amazing and detailed responses from their email team too, way more detailed and helpful vs other NLEs.

I was a Premiere pro user for several years. I didn't move without a lot of thoughts, no one wants to switch for the sake of it. I did however make the best decision in the end by switching to DR.
