The Best Free Video Editor For Churches

Yes, it's actually free...

Hey, it’s Brady,

What if I told you the best video editing software was actually free?

No strings attached.

It’s true…

It’s called DaVinci Resolve.

And it’s the editing platform we use every day.

Now, with that being said, it’s important to know that there are two different versions of DaVinci Resolve:

  • DaVinci Resolve (Cost: $0 USD)

  • DaVinci Resolve Studio (Cost: $299 USD)

The cost for DaVinci Resolve Studio version is $299 USD. And that one-time payment gives you a lifetime license to the platform. No subscriptions here.

cough Adobe 🙄 cough

Now, you might be wondering…

Does this mean the free version of Resolve is one of those free versions of software that is severely limited compared to the paid version – so much so that it’s almost forcing you to upgrade?

No. The free version is fully capable.

So what isn’t included in the free version?

  • Certain motion blur effects

  • Advanced noise reduction

  • The ability to edit compositions greater than 4K resolution

  • Built-in film grain

Basically, the features reserved for DaVinci Resolve Studio are the ones that you might only need when you’ve progressed to higher levels of video editing.

But nothing you’ll really miss when you’re a beginner or intermediate editor.

And if you are a more experienced editor? That $299 cost for a lifetime license is an easy decision in my mind.

Need a crash course on DaVinci Resolve? I made an entire YouTube video dedicated to it (including the best export settings).

Here’s the link to that video tutorial.
