    Hey Guys,
    I've experimented with Lightroom and the DJI lens correction filter which seems to work quite well. I'm keen to stabilise the videos as well as well as correct the fisheye. What are you using to achieve this that is quick and easy for beginners (preferably fully automatic)?

    I'm on a Mac and the solutions that I'm aware of:
    -Photoshop? (apparently does video too but painfully slow)
    -ProDAD prodrenalin - Never used it
    -iMovie(latest version) : Can't get it to work. Imported movies from the Phantom SD card have the stabilisation feature greyed out so can't do it. Couldn't figure out how to turn it on. It also doesn't correct Fisheye.
    -Youtube: If you want it posted online but usually I don't.

    Would love to know which solution you've found best and why if you could post below. Perhaps we can then see a consensus on the most popular and hopefully most successful method.

    For fisheye use GoPro Cineform Studio. It's free and does a good job.
    For stabilisation there's no really easy way other than adding a gimbal and having your footage stabilised "as shot".

    I've played around with some of the stabilisation tools in Adobe Premier but it always ends up looking crap.
