With the upcoming release of mac OS, it’s been announced that Final Cut Pro 7 will no longer be supported. To assist FCP7 editors, Blackmagic Design has created a short video to help with the switch from FCP7 to editing in DaVinci Resolve.
The video, which is available here, outlines the similarities between editing in the two NLEs and introduces many of DaVinci Resolve 14’s new features. It also includes a very quick introduction to DaVinci Resolve 14’s color grading and audio editing capabilities for those editors that are interested in other aspects of the post process. Since DaVinci Resolve 14 can import timelines from FCP7, shares many of the same keyboard shortcuts, uses a similar editing and trimming model, and is available in a free version, it’s a good alternative for editors needing to make the change from FCP7.
