The Cut Page is DaVinci Resolve 16’s ultra-fast editor for telling your story. Using a dual-timeline interface and some clever new smart editing tools that are unique to the Cut Page, this tutorial authored by Mark Spencer, will teach you how to quickly import, organize, edit, and deliver a finished project.
Intuitive Trim Tools
Trimming is at the heart of video editing, and the Cut Page gives you familiar tools for quickly adding or removing content from your clips. You’ll learn how to use these tools in the context of a dual-timeline interface that presents your clips in both a micro-view and macro-view simultaneously.
Smart Insert Edits
Inserting source clips to your timeline no longer requires the playhead to be parked on an edit point. We’ll show you how to use Resolve 16’s new smart tools to quickly add clips or transitions to the nearest edit point with a click of a button.
Editing 4K clips into an HD timeline is fairly commonplace in other NLEs. What isn’t commonplace, is doing a 4K punch-in as a close-up with a single mouse click. This tutorial will present many smart editing operations available in the Cut Page that will save you time.
