New in DaVinci Resolve 16 – Adjustment Clips. Free Tutorial!

I publish here a series or free articles and tutorials, as an introduction and educational resource for my up-coming Editing and Color Grading Workshops and Seminars.

All my courses are for the moment online, using Zoom. Classes are in English, with a maximum of 10 students per workshop. From October to December 2020, al courses have a reduced price of 135 Euros, instead of the regular 195 Euros fee, to help a bit during the Corona Virus pandemic. This is a 60 Euros saving.

My Workshops include: DaVinci Resolve Editing, DaVinci Resolve Color Grading, Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer, Final Cut Pro X, and Thinking the Edit (my Film Editing Theory and Analysis Seminar).

Now, to the free content of today!


This is a very welcome addition to DaVinci Resolve.

Adjustment Clips in the new Resolve allow you to work in effects and color grading in a number of clips at the same time, similar to Adjustment Layers in Premiere Pro and After Effects.

It’s important to know this: it was already possible to work simultaneously in different clips at the same time in previous versions of Resolve, using Compound Clips and specially creating groups, and you should also learn this other ways if you are serious about grading (specially grouping).

That said, Adjustment Clips are somehow “easier” and users coming from other programs are already familiar with the idea.


Here it is!
