Join the DaVinci Resolve 15 Certification Program, brought to you by the Valenti School of Communication at the University of Houston, the first official Blackmagic Design Training Partner in Texas, and experience the official DaVinci Resolve curriculum from a Certified Blackmagic Design Trainer.

For nearly two decades, DaVinci Resolve has been the leading industry standard for postproduction color grading and color correction for filmmakers. The new DaVinci Resolve 16 brings you a complete, one-stop editing suite that allows you to seamlessly and instantaneously switch between editing your timeline, audio editing, visual effects and graphics, and color correction and grading, without having to import or export your projects into multiple software.  Each of the elements (Edit, Fairlight for audio, Fusion for graphics, and Color) contains a complete interface for that field and is designed to a professional standard. In addition, DaVinci Resolve 16’s revolutionary collaboration option allows for multiple users to work simultaneously on the same project from different locations, allowing for easier collaboration, functionality, and teamwork.
