Explenite, a new tutorial producer has just released a set of tutorials for Blackmagic Design's DaVinci Resolve. They cover the basics and multi-NLE round tripping for $25.

From convincing the Hollywood Studio to use FCPX, to how the movie was actually edited right down to keywords and trimming, we publish our biggest Final Cut Pro X article so far.

This is not just a cut and paste from the Apple article, we have new interviews, new pictures and most importantly, lots more detail.

With unique access to the Editor Jan Kovac, the Directors Glenn Ficarra, & John Requa, Light Iron CEO Michael Cioni, Technology Consultant Sam Mestman and First Assistant Editor Mike Matzdorff, we follow the groundbreaking story of the post production of Focus on Final Cut Pro X.
