The program can be broken down into 6 main areas, including the new Cut editor, for importing and managing your video, audio, and image assets. The editing tab where you will do the bulk of your work actually placing video clips on the timeline, cutting away unnecessary footage, as well as adding effects and titles to your video. The cut editor serves as an alternative to the edit tab focused on a faster workflow, less interface clutter, and 3 easy to use timelines for different levels of precision in your adjustments. The fusion tab allows you create and modify powerful 3D effects creating objects and manipulating lights, color, 3D rotation and position, and more straight from within Resolve. Next, we will jump to the color tab where you can create advanced custom effects changing the visuals of your video with tools like layer masks and power windows. The Fairlight tab allows you to manipulate and improve your audio with VST plugins and record new voice overs inside the program. When all is said and done, you finish up your project by exporting inside of the deliver tab. Let’s get to it!
