I thought I would just simply as hello

I'm a complete beginner and never owned a video editor before. The only edit's I've done before is in photography and slide shows.

I have and own capture one 9 and photoshop cs3.

I would like to learn how to edit video for mainly youtube channel on woodworking. I own a div8 video camera and a pentax DSLR with video built into it also a Samsung 9.


I am looking for a real good Tutorial with a follow along tutorial and video files to down load just to get me started.

Anyway I'm 50 ish living in the UK with a good back ground in photography I also run a PC with a video transfer card on windows 10 I think I have the old movie maker to scan and convert the video to hard drive

Well I've now received my book to complement the video lessons.

I must admit I'm finding the book a little bit hard to follow in places. please remember this is my first time using a video editor so everything is double Dutch to me. I can tell you how many time I've deleted my project and started again for one reason or another.

Another option is Steve Martin's new tutorial on Davinci Resolve 16, available from Ripple Training. It costs money (the Resolve tutorials are free), but it provides a good introduction to Resolve.

Here's some tips.

1. Go in sequence, don't skip around.

2. Actually do the work from the book, don't just read it.

3. Look up the definitions of any words you don't understand. (Our teachers got this one very wrong. Never try to deduce the meaning from context. Always look it up.)
