In addition, DaVinci Resolve offers hundreds of 2D and 3D tools for generating special effects and motion graphics if you need to add some extra flair.

You can export video to various formats, including .MP4, .AVI, .MOV, .MXF, and .DPX. You can also publish video directly from the application to online video services, such as YouTube, Vimeo, and Twitter.
DaVinci Resolve has many advanced features that will meet most video editors' needs. It supports a large number of multimedia formats and provides an array of powerful editing capabilities. While it is not on the same level as high-end commercial editors like Adobe Premiere Pro or Apple Final Cut Pro, Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve is possibly the best free video editor available.
