Software for the Course
There are just a few pieces of software needed for this course. All have free trial periods so you don’t need to purchase them, to do the course.
The following software can be installed on your computer if your machine meets the software specs:
– BlackMagic DaVinci Resolve (Free ver. available)
– ShotPut Pro (Win/Mac offload free trial)
– Yoyotta ID (Mac only offload free trial)
– Spreadsheet (Microsoft, Apples Numbers, open source Open Office will all work)
Some of the software is totally free, and others are trials. The trial time starts when you first launch the program(s). Be careful not to launch them until you think you will be working with the tutorials so that you won’t run out of ‘free’ use time.
There are hot-links within the lessons and tutorials where they are used, so you can download and install them when you get to that specific tutorial.
