    I've just started using Wondershare Video Editor on the Mac - seems to be fairly easy to use and it's pretty inexpensive. I hate iMovie so was looking for something else that didn't cost too much. I think I have seen other threads on this topic so do a search and see what pops up.

    I would try to get a way to instal the old iMovie that was super intuitive: drag drop trim.
    NOw iMOvie is super complicated and pro software aren't simple (I am actually a video editor)
    In fact you make me realize that there's a niche with all the videos that are produced with the drones!!! :D
    I never thought of that: what do people do of all the footage they shoot?

    yeah you can't get the footage on the iPad that's for sure...
    Maybe one day I'll take the time to do a tutorial on "basic editing" for Phantom users.
    But still... it would require to buy a pretty expensive software (Adobe Premiere Pro)...

    I find Windows Movie Maker to be very user-friendly, and it comes free if you have Windows. I have seen other applications, both paid and free, that do not support .mov files, which is the format my video camera uses. I've posted to both YouTube and Vimeo without trouble.

    Try sony vegas pro, that's what I always use and it's fairly easy to get used to.
