You mean
DaVinci Resolve 12.5?
To be precise, it is currently (2017-07-06) v12.5.6 and is their "current" version, not an older version. There is also a "public beta" available of their next version, v14, available. It seems from their forums and the many YouTube tutorials and demos that a large number of users have moved to the public beta of 14.

For both v12.5.6 and v14 (beta) there are basic free versions and a "studio" version that costs. They are selling v12.5.6 Studio and there is a button to "upgrade" to the v14 public beta.

I was wondering, is this always free?
From the wording on their site and what I've read elsewhere, it appears that it is their current marketing plan to have a basic free version and a paid advanced "Studio" version. It is not a temporary promotion, but permanent, though they could change their mind at some later date.

BlackMagic has offered its "Resolve" app as a "free" or "no-cost" option", and has for years - I've used it for years and still am a bit stunned that it's free. Their v.14 beta Studio has pretty much blown me away so far. Resolve has been free for at least a few years, but I'm considering ponying up for their Studio version once it's official.

BlackMagic's DaVinci Resolve Studio is their paid app, and always has been a paid app or included with hardware. Until a few months ago BlackMagic was charging $1k for v12.5, until they announced their new $300 price point for the updated suite (that's now in beta), and now they've slashed the price for v12.5.

I've never received an email or call from BlackMagic for an upsell from their free Resolve app. IMHO both FCPX and Resolve are the best deals in NLE video editing today, and for the past few years.
