In DaVinci Resolve, splitting clips is a very simple process that can be done in a variety of ways. The most common way is to simply place your cursor at the point in the clip you want to split, and then press the "S" key on your keyboard. This will split the clip at that point. You can also split clips by right-clicking on the clip in the timeline and selecting "Split Clip" from the menu that appears.

There are a few things to keep in mind when splitting clips in DaVinci Resolve. First, if you have multiple audio or video tracks in your timeline, the split will happen on all of those tracks. So if you only want to split the video track, make sure to disable the other tracks first. Second, when you split a clip, the part of the clip after the split will be moved down the timeline. So if you have other clips in your timeline after the one you're splitting, they will all be moved down.

Finally, when you split a clip, a new "in" and "out" point will be created for that clip. So if you want to use the split clips in other projects, or in other parts of the same project, you'll need to make sure to adjust the in and out points accordingly.
