At the behest of a forum elder statesman... letting all you Speilbergs in the rough know that DaVinci Resolve editing software is available for FREE from their website. If you're looking to get serious with your edit... check it out! ... Did I mention it's free?

Here's a recent Premiere comparison/review from Engadget: [www.engadget.com]

Also free @ the App Store

Allegedly, the App Store version is somehow crippled.

I use FCP but I'm looking forward to seeing what this can do. Thanks Jonny!

I saw that page too. It doesn't really say what it needs to actually run as opposed to being usable.

Anyway, I get the feeling my 2009 Mac Pro and 2009 MacBook Pro are not going to cut it.

Basic version is free. Used to be called DaVinci Resolve Lite. Not a limited time deal.

DaVinci Resolve Studio 16 is $299.00. It is free when you buy a Blackmagic camera.

there's been a free version for many years. seemed nice to me, took a longer look when they rolled the fairchild into it. I would use the freebie to cut performance videos of stuff for which I recorded good second system stereo audio. cut the video, dump it out as a guide track, do the separately recorded sound in ProTools and Izotope, bring the redone audio file back to Resolve and marry it to picture. It was fun. I downloaded the 90 trial of FCP, but I have yet to check it out.

yeah, I think this is always free. it froze up on my running an older iMac, so not sure I will try again, but the few times I got it to work, the learning curve is a bit steep coming from more basic applications.

yup, looking at the GPU recommendations the $$ required to update a cMP is a
deal breaker.

Isn't it always free? The Studio version costs $300.

Maybe I will see if this old 2009 Mac Pro and Nvidia card will run this. Otherwise, I need to get a more modern Mac.

Mine pulled down about 6 megs/sec.

no!

there has been a free version for years.

it is part of the black magic ethos.

it is a great piece of software that has a long learning curve but the effort is often worth the results.

ymmv

Well, I had some time to kill and downloaded it on the MacBook Pro. Looking back, I probably should have tried the MacPro, but alas, I did not.

Anyway, long story short, it installed, but hung trying to run it (loading waveform editor or some such thing). After an hour, I force quit it and got on with my life.
