After the course, you can use what you have learned to create different kinds of videos and publish them, for example, on YouTube to get feedback from potential viewers. Through feedback and regular practicing, you'll become a better video maker. When you do this, the keyboard shortcuts of the editor stick in your mind, which makes the editing phase much smoother.
It may also be worthwhile to create a workflow that suits you so you can finish your videos as efficiently as possible. To do this, you may want to use the Smart Bin feature of the editor so that you can easily add, for example, your intro or outro to each of your videos.
If you want, you can explore the DaVinci Resolve's Fusion and Color pages more deeply after the course and learn how to create effects that enhance the look of your videos and strengthen your channel brand.
