Did you know that DaVinci Resolve 17 is actually free? As hard as it might be to believe, this is a free, full-featured version of Blackmagic Design's professional video editing software. There is still the paid Studio 'full' version, but for anyone hunting a free video editor, it's hard to find anything else like this. For most, the free version will deliver everything you ever need.
For one, it's platform-agnostic, so you can use it on Mac and Linux as well as on Windows, though it can be picky over its hardware support. That mostly extends to the GPU, which is important since Resolve 17 makes full use of GPU acceleration.
Besides all the editing tools you can shake a stick at, Resolve 17 also boasts comprehensive color grading and built-in audio tools. The color grading is one of its strong points and is welcomed, especially for free users.
To completely learn DaVinci Resolve 17 will take time and commitment, but it's also fairly easy to pick up and get started with simple edits. Just make sure you have a fairly good hardware resource pool on hand, as Resolve can certainly gobble it up. But if you want to get serious about video editing without a financial commitment, this is the software to get.
