Video editing has been getting more and more popular ever since platforms like YouTube and TikTok became popular. Why pay a video editor for your videos when you can do it yourself for free? Here are some of the best tips to help you get started on your video editing journey. Let's get started!
Why use Davinci Resolve?
There are many reasons why an editor should use Davinci Resolve but I narrowed it down to the top 3. Here's why you should use Davinci Resolve:
DaVinci Resolve Has Everything Built-in. It is built so you don’t have to learn multiple apps or switch software for different tasks. Everything you need to get raw footage to a professional video is built into the program.
DaVinci Resolve is Free. Final Cut Pro X is fairly affordable ($299), but it requires an Apple computer. Adobe Premiere Pro on the other hand works with all systems but it is extremely expensive coming in at $53/month.
Frequent Updated. Unlike its competitors, DaVinci is always looking for new ways to improve the program. It is constantly adding new features and improving the overall user experience.
What does Expand Media use for our Social Media Management Clients?
We use DaVinci Resolve for our Social Media Management clients and all of our social accounts from YouTube to Facebook to Instagram to Twitter to Pinterest.
Even though the price is not an issue for an agency like us, we choose DaVinci Resolve over any other program because of the quality and practicality of the software. It is simple yet powerful at the same time.
The fact that you can edit, color grade, and mix audio in the same program is a huge time saver because you don't have to go back and forth between multiple programs.
What is the best way to learn DaVinci Resolve?
My favorite way (and the way I learned) is to watch videos on YouTube. There are so many helpful videos that will teach you everything you need from green screen to professional audio fine-tuning.
The Expand Media team is always willing to help if you have a question about using Resolve so feel free to reach out.
We have started a new series on our YouTube channel called "Resolve 101" where we will be posting tutorial videos that will teach you how to use the program. You can find it here: www.youtube.com/channel/UCbkOKZf2rUeXMtK9hwwTgyg

Where can I download Davinci Resolve?
Please, Please, Please don't just download it from a random website! You can get a virus on your computer!!! Only download it from their official website!
Here is a link to their official website:
They have two options, one is Free and the other is a one-time purchase of $295. I would not recommend that you pay for it, even if you have the money just download it and try it out for free.
Here is what their official website looks like.
After you download the software you will need to go through the installation process. If you need help with that let us know and we will make a video to help you either with the installation or the download process! We would love to help out, after all, that is why we make posts like this;)
