Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve Lite is Free and now better than ever!

DaVinci Resolve Lite is Free and now better than ever

A tad off topic here for a moment but many AE’ers like to dabble in other apps and this one is a doosy. (How do you spell doosy?  Is it doosey?) Not that long ago BlackMagic Design let loose a free version of the DaVinci Resolve software (called DaVinci Resolve Lite) for color grading. Yes, it’s completely free though it was somewhat limited in its power, e.g. only two color correction nodes. However, version 8.1 released today (Download it here) now has unlimited nodes… and power windows… and tracking! This lite version has just about everything the lite or casual user could want.
