Divinci Resolve Lite Now Available FREE !

Blackmagic's Divinci Resolve Lite color grading software is now available for FREE download from their site.

For those of us looking for a potential replacement for the wonderful Apple killed Color software, Resolve may be a solution.

After downloading and playing with the very brief sample files that come with Resolve as an introduction, I haved the following observations:

1. It is a very deep program for color grading - on the surface it is more difficult than Color, but more powerful with such improvements as a better tracking tool and stabalization.

2. Currently, tutorials and training are very lacking. Hopefully Blackmagic will realize that the fabulous idea of offering a "lite" version to entice people at the perfect timing (Apple foolish End Of Life decision for Color) also needs some solid training to match up. This is a complex program.

3. Many experienced users of both Color and Resolve advise that Resolve is best used with a specialized panel. Whilst Resolve has a VERY expensive dedicated panel, there are far less expensive panels such as Tangent's Wave and Euphonix. Resolve is apparently not as mouse or Wacom pen and tablet friendly as Color. But for me the starting point of trying out the free Resolve seemed to work fairly well with the mouse scroll wheel.

Of course I still prefer Color just because of familiarity vs. entirely new Resolve. As stated before, solid training is needed to ease the transition into Resolve. Right now too much fumbling around on my own with the manual is tuff.

I noticed they don't have a privacy statement on the page that requires your information before downloading. Does anyone know how Blackmagic Design uses the information? I'd think a phone number would only be relevant if your were making a purchase.
