RAM upgrades are probably one of the easiest upgrades to do to a modern PC. Pop the case of, stick in some new RAM, put the case back on and off you go. However, some people simply don’t like the idea of opening up a PC. For others, a RAM upgrade would require taking out old RAM, increasing the cost of the upgrade, while a few people might even have maxed out their system’s RAM limit.

DaVinci Resolve Studio 16 - Video Editing, VFX & Colour Correction - Activation Key is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product and great service from Scan I've been meaning to make the switch to davinci for a while. As much as i like Premiere Pro, I just cannot justify the £40 per month they have you tied into, seemingly for life. Understandably there has been a lot of swearing as things don't quite work how you want them to, but the layout and general workings are fairly easy to pick up. There are a few issues that I haven't found translate over from Premiere which is unfortunate but expected. The mask tracking feature in the grading window is incredible. It works SO much quicker than in Premiere, meaning you can create a vignettes around specific areas that track perfectly in seconds. Anyone thinking of making the switch I would advise you give yourself a 2 or 3 month cross over period to continue using your previous software at the same time. On projects where time is tight, I would suggest sticking with what you know, use smaller projects to start your transition. Scan were faultless as per usual. Arrived very quickly and hassle free.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive initially but great value in the long term. Amazing product. Yes, it's expensive as a one off payment but considering you get all future updates free and no recurring payments it's amazing value considering the features you get and the extra speed and functionality from the free version. No problem with purchasing from Scan. Product arrived quickly and in good condition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Studio version great upgrade from free. I use Resolve mostly for Colour Grading/Correction with 8/S8/16mm films .. it is the best I have used. Very Happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent prosumer software. I have switched to Resolve 15 from Vegas Pro 15. Resolve has all the features that Vegas users have been requesting for ages, and I can't believe Black Magic are offering the software at such a reasonable price. I am still on a learning curve, but so far I am ultra-impressed.
