What books are helpful when learning DaVinci Resolve?
If you have no video editing experience, including other software, I think it would be good to have a reference book or e-book at hand.
Experienced users will be able to grasp the information on YouTube and blogs, but inexperienced users are recommended to purchase to get an image of the video editing flow.
The following three books are explained in Japanese. Two have been confirmed.
- DaVinci Resolve 17 Digital Video Editing Perfect Manual
- An introduction to DaVinci Resolve, a high-performance software that allows you to freely create videos
- An Introduction to DaVinci Resolve Editing & Color Grading
Both books are written with the contents of version 17, but you can understand the contents of version 18 without any problem with the exception of some. (What immediately comes to mind is that in 183, the UI when selecting elements with text + (TEXT +) character decoration has changed, and Fusion has been localized into Japanese.)
In addition, only DaVinci Resolve Editing & Color Grading Introduction, the project file that the purchaser can download is distributed in version 18 and cannot be handled in 17.
However, the project file is compatible with later versions, so basically there is no problem with other books. (However, there may be individual problems. Please check with the publisher for details.)
Both "DaVinci Resolve 17 Digital Video Editing" and "Introduction to DaVinci Resolve, a high-performance software that allows you to freely create videos" are written with the assumption that you will touch DaVinci Resolve for the first time, but the types of videos you are aiming for are slightly different. I feel like
I think that "Introduction to DaVinci Resolve Editing & Color Grading" is a handy book to deepen your understanding if you understand the general functions.
DaVinci Resolve 17 Digital Video Editing Perfect Manual
It is recommended for those who want to stay calm and understand.
As described as "video editing", content such as color, fusion, fairlight is also for beginners, but it is clearly described. You may not feel the need for the details of the functions of Color, Fusion, and Fairlight when you start editing videos, but once you have done this book, you will understand the necessity, and you will be hooked on more detailed work. you may end up
I find Fusion to be an intimidating feature.
This book explains how to create simple effects using the Fusion function. 456 pages.
An introduction to DaVinci Resolve, a high-performance software that allows you to freely create videos
First of all, it is recommended for those who want to do it easily.
If you want to make a YouTube video of him that competes with content rather than video, I think this book will help you understand it.
It is content to be edited on the cut page as much as possible.
There are few explanations for color and Fairlight, and there are no explanations for Edit, which are used when using the missing functions on the cut page, and no explanation for the Fusion page.
However, as Blackmagic Design's official support person said, you can complete most of the editing on the cut page, so I think there will be no problems with this for future users.
There is a general description of the information necessary to publish videos on YouTube, such as blurring (mosaic) against moving objects, shaking the screen (camera shake), dubbing, etc. using power windows. 300 pages.

In the video salon article, (because of the characteristics of this magazine?), it can not be said that it is for beginners, but if you touch DaVinci Resolve for the first time, acquire basic knowledge from other books and go deeper I feel that it was a content that would be a trigger for me.
