Da-Vinci is a superb program, even in its lite and free version.
There is an absolute consensus on that fact so you won't be disapointed.
When Chris Barrett sent the news here that it was available for windows, I jumped into it, installed it and start to put myself into it...after 30mins, I've closed it and never opened it again since then.
Don't get me wrong, it's not because I thought it's not good, it's because I got an overdosis of learning curves, enough with Avid and Nuke wich is as simple as learning to fly a 747, and I realised that Edius does 90% of what Da-Vinci Resolve can do, and I know Edius so why should I put myself into more hassle?
As James said several times, don't let yourself been eaten by the monster (the video PP). Da-Vinci doesn't look long and complicated to learn, but even though, I'm done with more new software to learn at the moment. Since months, all I do is eating datas and practising. That's the reason why I'm so active in Lu-La by the way, because I'm stuck in front of the computer and the only "escape" in those moments is Lu-La while I'm rendering something...that's not healphy at all.
But if you go Resolve, you'd had a great tool for sure.
