    I'm looking for a windows app that does what the Dji app does. I want to cut parts together with a fade and a music track over it. Maybe some image enhancement.

    Is there a simple and fast desktop app that does that?

    Windows Movie Maker works well for basic editing.

    Hey msinger. I did download that app but didn't see a way to cut parts of the video to make a movie. Am I missing something?

    Hi I had the same dilemma and didn't want to spend any money, in the end having tried the go pro software and others I stuck with movie maker - keep at it and you will make it work for you and it is free!

    Using both Nero and Corel VideoStudio with good results. Both are cheaper than dirt and if I can use them, any trained monkey can learn them too.

    Sony catalyst browse is what I use. Works well for cutting, editing and color correction while on the go. It's free. The P3 camera is Sony and the software makes it very easy to exploit the capabilities of the camera especially when shooting in Log; but it's easy in Normal color mode also

    @2nd2non can you view and edit RAW images with Catalyst Browse?

    Cyberlink Powerdirector it's under 100.00 and works well. Can be found on Ebay or downloaded.
