Commercial use of the free versions?

PostTue Jan 16, 2018 6:58 pm

Hi,

I am new to DaVinci 14 and Fusion 9. I have got free versions of these softwares and I wonder these free versions can be used commercial purposes or not. If so, is commercial use only valid for these versions? What's the plan for future versions? I need an answer.

Thank you :)

Read the EULA but I don't believe there are any restrictions on the usage for the free version.

But you should spend the money and get the PAID version. Blackmagic will only continue to make improvements to the software if it makes enough of a profit to pay for their support staff and developers. And the additional features in Resolve Studio are more than worth the US$299.

I think that qualifies as the understatement of the week. Maybe even for the month ;)

Hey guys,

I am wondering if the software is still free for commercial use. To be more specific: I'd like to use it in a company and I have no intention to sell the produced videos.
