Date: May 15, 2020

If your going to use DaVinci Resolve for more then just Grading then this is the bundle you need. The last thing I wanted was to flip flop in between different programing to get one result. I love not needing to branch out and kill my project and time with transcoding issues. Boris allows you to make is simple or complex without being render heavy on your GPU. I edit anything from talking heads, to high motion racing events and this product has not been a waste of money by any stretch. Highly Recommend this suite.. Best, Matt Color Room Productions LLC
