Even in the demo version (which is unlimited might I add), you can do whatever you need to do. It doesn't degrade video or audio quality and it's SUPER easy to change the volume of individual audio files. It's absolutely amazing to use even if you'll just be working on simple projects and the layout is very compact and understandable.

The simple core functions work perfectly and it has many other options and features than I have mentioned here. Absolutely amazing but really pricey, although it is a one-time purchase and I feel it would be really useful for professional filmmaking with all its features.

It takes a decent setup to actually run, but when you get it open it's got a wide array of features, though some of them are in unconventional places and need a very specific process (ie, chroma keying takes place in the colour tab, which is separate to the edit tab). Some features are listed but locked out, which will be a bit frustrating, but expected. You will spend time configuring the workspace, like setting the preview to play all frames, and stuff like that. It's worth it though.

DaVinci Resolve, touted as Emmy award winning video editor, isn't even capable of importing MKV files in 2020. You'll have to convert all your MKV files into DVR friendly DNxHD codec/format as mentioned here , in order to even import them. No, Thank you!

Its Much Much Much better than adobe simply bcz it wont crash while doing something and can run on linux without any problem. if you are learning a video editor just learn Davici its simple, fast and more reliable. It also packs a pretty good audio mixer (recommend Audacity if you have the time to use another audio mastering tool), One of the best color grading and Fusion (recommend blender,Unreal engine 5 or something like that for 3D workloads but it can handle that). its a pretty good package and its free or the studio version with added features is just one time purchase.

Much more useful and powerful than its competitors. You can do editing, sound design, simple visual effects, and advanced compositing all in one program. (if you are thinking about designimg complex 2D animation, this is not the right program for you.)

First started the program and almost lost my mind troubleshooting audio for 40 minutes. It turns out that only the video from my audio+video MP4 file was being imported. Tested a MOV file and got the expected behavior. Then loaded the audio separately but the existing timeline wouldn't accept the audio track. Deleted the timeline and added audio first then video. Just got fed up with this and uninstalled immediately.

Maybe at one point this was free for personal use, but it isn't anymore. The "free" download is an unusably limited demo. After waiting for the huge download to finish, installing, and waiting forever for it to scam all my VST plugins (for a video editor?? Why??) it ran for two minutes before it started throwing up nag screens every 10 seconds telling me I had to pay them $300 to use it any more.

If you're looking for a free, open-source app, this ain't it. It was a complete waste of like 45 minutes of my time.

I'm fine with commercial apps, but I'm not fine with tricking people who are looking for a FOSS app with wasting their time download and installing a severely, unusably limited demo thinking they're getting FOSS.

And, no, I didn't download "Studio", I downloaded the smaller one that seemed like it was the "personal" edition.

What? Do you even know what a FOSS is? DaVinci Resolve never stated that it was a FOSS; plus I've never gotten this pop up. You definitely installed the Studio one.

you installed the wrong one probably or you are that lazy to create something and want to use the templates. and Black magic never claimed DaVinci is FOSS its not even Opensource. Yeah some Templates and stuff requires that paid version but you can create your own and its not hard to create the Title screens Use The correct Background, Font and animation its that simple. you can easily install any font you like.
