Layers and nodes are not contradictions. Simple effect layers in the DaVinci Resolve Edit page can help both editors and VFX artists to build effects quickly. Build your first prototype in minutes, get the concept and timing right, then you can finetune and customize in Fusion.
The enhanced integration in DaVinci Resolve 17 gives even more options to jump back and forth and to combine the best of Fusion and Edit in your workflow.
This beginner-friendly tutorial gives a roundtrip through different Fusion concepts and ideas on how to combine them. Starting from the edit page we build a surveillance camera effect step by step.

- Combining Edit and Fusion Effects
- Fusion Shape Tools
- Fusion Titles
