    I thought I would use the drone for mostly still pictures but am finding that videos are a lot more fun.

    The problem now is to find a video editor for a Windows pc that can handle .mov and .mp4 files and 1080p or 2.7k resolution.

    All the free editors that I have downloaded and tried really suck. I would gladly pay for one that could handle the video from my p3s.

    I want one that will actually download from the p3s and make it easy to navigate to them.

    Does anyone have any suggestions for a good video editor for free or for sale?

    Adobe Premiere Pro CC. $20 per month subscription or pay for it in full.

    I can't really answer that since everyone learns at a different pace but I'd say for simple editing like adding a song or trimming a video and stitching videos together it can't get much easier. I believe they give you a free 1 month trial.

    I've had pretty good luck with Power Director.

    Will Adobe premier pro cc run on Windows 10? From what I have seen it will only run on Windows 7 and 8.

    I didn't know resolve had a free version. Good choice as long as they didn't cripple it too much.

    Or.. If you're clever, find a crack and get it free!


    ;)

    Program is still worth the money, I use adobe premiere cs6 pro but have not tested 2.7k footage.

    Cyberlink PowerDirector 14. It is like 64 dollars, and pretty easy and intuitive to use.
