ThanX folks, really good information presented clearly. looking forward to the next one...

i'm interested in a few things in the short term

- sky replacement + 3D camera solves + fixing tracking errors / editing tracks

- end rollers

- sending roto/tracks/masks to Resolve's color page

these are all things i roundtrip currently to other software

Thank you for the kind words and great inputs! We have a separate course about sky replacement and the "Introduction to Visual Effects in DaVinci Resolve" course will cover most of the topics you mention. The digital retouching class also covers some of the topics.

Ok, just a beginner in Fusion... how can I move the anchor point, as for a rectangle there isn't... So I try to understand the way of thinking.

Like to see a lot. Just step by step is great. 

All the basics is a great way to start and help using Fusion. 

Maybe add a lesson to walk through all the nodes / tools and explain when to use.

I'm really interested in lessons that are for more for Post Finishing editors. So basic roto, cloning w/tracking, end credit rolls with smoothing Technics like expressions in AE to help credit rolls be smoother.

really likeing these, clear and great signal to noise ratio, well done!

one idea for a tut is dealing with when the Resolve softcut falls on it's face.... clean plates / warp grids / morphs / comps....

the sosftcut does fall on it's face when faced with a challange, but then so does all the other automajik morhp transitions, it's not any worse than Avid's or Pp's.... any of them are fail if the shots are not near perfect from the get go

Great tutorial about the macro's and drag and drop from desktop, very interesting insight for developing workflows. Thanks for answering about anchor points (pivot)
