Guys that give 1/10 score are haters that try to lower the score. You cant give less than 10/10 value for money if product is free. Let alone this evesome product. You may not know how to use it, are laze enought to learn it, some functions are not there... but value for money?!¨

I started to use Davinci when Premiere Lumetry started to make troubles back in 2014. I used SpeedGrade as well. Than discovered resolve. If Speedgrade is speedier in comparison to Premiere built in tools, Resolve does resolve colors you were not know it was there. Right name. Learning curve is not huge if you know the principles of color grading (from real grading machines in anolg world). It is far more intuitive than Speedgrade, or Lumetri. As well FAST.

I only have free version, and I hoped that someday it will evolve into full grown suite. I like alredy in 12.5 the way how it export files. Now I use Premiere only for cuts and export. But today I discovered version 14. Now this is not only full grown editing suite, but it adds attention to audio as well. I can ditch now both Premiere and Audition, and Speedgrade. I do not use Aftereffects, so I can finally ditch Adobe subscripttion.

Price of 300 USD is bargain compared to what I pay for Adobe software both in money and my time, nerves, frustration. And I learned that it works fine on Linux - So I can buy new workstation dedicated to editing without the need To pay for Windows which I do not like as well.

If I take into consideration how many savings I make with transition to DavinciResolve, the studio version is actually free after one month of uasage, than I actually gain profit by just not having expenses each month, let alone, being far quicker and higher quality for what I do.

It is Capture One for video.
