    Okay, so being a cheap guy by nature, I've got Windows Live Movie Maker and the free version of DaVinci Resolve 12.5 to work with.

    So far, every time I've tried to play with WLMM, it doesn't show the actual video. The thumbnail is there, the length is proper, but when I actually preview the project, it's just black. Then when I actually try to save the project as a movie, WLMM locks up.

    And am I correct in assuming that DaVinci doesn't even allow for ADDING music? Or must it be a certain file type?

    What is the machine you are working on? Full specs, ie. RAM, CPU, HDD space, GPU etc?

    Asus laptop. Intel i7 2.3Ghz, 8Gb RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M, 1Tb HDD (about half being used). I've used it before (WLMM) to do HD videos before, with music, of my son's soccer games.

    Use the GoPro Studio, it loads Phantom video files no problem and is free ;)

    What video format are you importing to WLMM?
    you could try doing yout CC etc in Resolve, render out to MP4 or some other common format and them pull that into WLMM for editing and audio
