    I am very new to video and drones in general. I am a Newbie with a P2V+ .
    I want to edit my video to create a shorter video of the hopefully interesting parts, to post or share...what is the easiest software to use on the Mac?
    What format is good for posting (To create a relatively decent quality HD video but not too large a file for easy uploading to FB or YouTube?

    Are their camera settings and formats that would be best for this?

    Please help. So much to learn.

    most software will accept the video produced by the Phantom and convert it to anything that you might want to upload. The format you choose depends somewhat on your internet connection speed and the size files that you want to make on your computer. Youtube will accept any resolution that the Phantom can create.

    As far as software, you need to decide your budget and how much you time want to spend learning the software. The simple software is generally easier to learn and has less functionality than the more elaborate software. For simple edits and reformatting, I think that most all software can do that.
