It would seem you need a minimum 2GB VRAM video card to use Davinci Resolve.
Version 10.1.4

Macupdate in their infinite wisdom refuse to list this one properly, despite me having updated the info for them. It's actually "Davinci Resolve 12.5 Studio" that is $995 and "Davinci Resolve 12.5" which this listing implicitly refers to is free!!!!!

Macupdate is obviously failing when they're not current.. What the ..... is going on?
Version 10.1.4

Real Finalcut / Premiere alternative besides basic version is FREEEE! (if you don't need 3D and team workflow.)

Macupdate, The current version is 12.3.2.
Version 10.1.4
24 November 2015
It should be mentioned that the (impressive) guts of this program, a full-featured video editor, are free. You just need to pay the grand if you want to work with 4K files, or do particularly fancy stuff. And there are professionals out there who like that video editor better than final cut pro. So there's a lot more going on here then a bizarrely low-rated thousand dollar application.

That screen shot doesn't look like DaVinci Resolve. It looks more like FCP 7
