Description

This guide aims to introduce the fusion page of DaVinci Resolve for the purposes of creating custom titles, effects, and 3d compositions. We start off with a walkthrough of how you build out your effects with nodes and connectors on the fusion page and then lead in to several examples that beginners to intermediates can follow along to get some good results in the DaVinci Resolve video editor. You can follow along all of the tutorials with the free or pro version of Resolve.
