Class: DaVinci Resolve 16 Overview
Date: April 3 (Friday)
Time: 10am – 2pm PST
Instructor: Steve Martin
To prepare for your upcoming class you will need to:
1. Download and install DaVinci Resolve 16.2
2. Download training media from the Beginners Guide which is on the Blackmagic Design website: (you will need to scroll down the page a bit to find)
3. Download and install the zoom classroom application for macOS and Windows:
(For iPad download the Zoom Cloud meetings app.)
For the most optimal experience there are a few things you can do to prepare for the class:

  • Set aside a space that has very few distractions where you can focus for a few hours.
  • We strongly suggest you have a dual monitor setup or use a laptop or iPad for Zoom and open Resolve on your desktop.
  • You’ll want to have headphones to hear the Zoom laptop or tablet.
  • Once you log into the meeting your iPad or laptop webcam will be enabled but you will initially be muted.
  • If you have questions during the course we recommend using the Zoom’s built-in chat to send a message to the instructor.
  • Please be sure you have downloaded Resolve 16.2 and the media as mentioned above. This is critical to following along with the instructor.

Below are a couple of videos to help you get setup with your training before the course.
