    So I've uploaded my footage before but never actually edited any of it. Until now!



    What do you think?
    Colour graded and other stuff.

    Yeh he's one of the most inspirational youtubers, and he puts so much effort into all of his videos.

    Watched that video about four times

    What type of computer did you use for your edits? I am struggling with a windows PC, thinking about splurging on a Mac Pro (not Macbook Pro)but I am hoping they will release a new model this year.

    Yeh use a Mac. That was only a basic edit that took <15mins, could have been much better. Other than the colour grading, that could have been done on any computer, really not that complex.

    Or, spend about half the cost of a Mac on a PC that will easily handle any editing your need to do, invest the rest in a bunch of batteries and other cool stuff for your drone.

    Sorry I meant I use a Mac, it's up to you what you want to use but that edit wouldn't really have taken that much processing or graphics power

    I can't afford a mac so I'm stuck with a Windows 7 machine. I can't seem to view my .mov video files on my pc. Windows media player won't play and neither will movie maker. Can anyone suggest a good program for Windows that is affordable?

    I should have said that's what I started out doing, with that not working either. That's why I changed over to .mov
