    Great complement to the Resolve 101 course.
    This is the third time I try to learn Resolve, but the first two times I failed and abandoned: the program felt completely backwards and nonintuitive, and the tutorials I was watching were badly structured and organized and in the end not really helpful. This time it worked, thanks to the Resolve 101 course, which took me through the basics of the program. But it doesn’t cover the color correction part in sufficient detail, so I got this “Grading a Scene in DaVinci Resolve” tutorial to fix that.
