BSC Expo 2020 is now over, but it was the first stop of the DaVinci Resolve European Tour 2020. Indeed, between January and June of this year, Blackmagic Design’s truck will go to every major city in Europe to train everyone interested in learning the bases of Resolve, for free.
DaVinci Resolve European Tour 2020
During BSC Expo 2020, we caught up with Simon Hall from Blackmagic Design to talk about their new DaVinci Resolve European Tour 2020 that launched only a week ago. Over the next six months, the giant Blackmagic truck full of gear will stop to more than 35 cities.
The idea is to train everyone that wants to learn the software for free. All the sessions will be held by a DaVinci Resolve certified trainers. Also, don’t worry, the local instructor will speak in its native language.
So, where does Blackmagic earn money with free software (with limitations) and free training? Moreover, the full Resolve Studio version – worth $299.00 – comes with every Blackmagic camera you purchase.
Free Software – Paid Hardware
The DaVinci Resolve European Tour 2020 will teach you everything you have to know to get started: how to import/organize your footage, how to use Resolve as an NLE, and how to finish your project, including color correction, VFX, and audio treatment.
After the training session, you should be ready to dish every other NLE you are currently using, and switch your workflow to Resolve. That’s the idea behind these free training sessions, and Blackmagic is doing something amazing for the community with these workshops.
Of course, if you want to unleash the Resolve beast fully, you have to buy 3rd party accessories, like a control panel or a monitoring card. Also, you must want to buy the Studio version if you haven’t yet. This is the other idea behind those sessions, and there’s nothing to blame about it.
You can already register for any training session by visiting the DaVinci Resolve European Tour 2020’s website here.
