Some thoughts on DVR 17 and the speed editor


Mu-43 Hall of Famer

Although I am still using Vegas PRO, I've spent about 15 hours doing the learning tutorial provided for Resolve 17 (with the speed editor) and so far I am impressed. For quick jobs the difference between between the two is much less than I imagined. I must admit that DVR 17 seems to be a better visually designed program and so far I don't regret having gotten it for a specific project. I thought it would be hard going for the new type of work flow, but so far so good. With the demise of movie studio I think the free version of Resolve would be a great way of beginning editing. I plan on running both programs but can see next year I might be using only 1 program.

The project I am using Resolve for is large, complex and has many files, lots of music, and needs some 3D capability. So far the ability of Resolve to help me manage my files and structure of the project along with the speed editor which is normally $300 (the cost of Resolve Studio 17) has not made me regret my purchase.

Next year when I get a new desktop I won't have to proxy all of my 5.7K files which is required in both Vegas and Resolve on my system (old i74200 32 gig ram/SSD/RX480 8 gig GPU).

If you asked me right now I'd have to say Resolve 17 Studio with the Speed Editor is best choice between Vegas, Premier, and Resolve especially if you are a young person wanting to get into the business. the free Resolve is certainly a very smart marketing move by Black Magic IMHO. So is the free lifetime updates to Resolve Studio.
