    Hard to beat this for value and features, Adobe Photoshop and Premiere Elements for Windows/Mac:

    http://www.amazon.com/Adobe-Photoshop-E ... e+elements

    In that combo you get both Photoshop (Elements) for stills and Premiere (Elements) for video. Lots of power there. It's cut down from the full versions, but has more than most casual users will ever use. Great power for the price.

    I edit everything on my iPad with Pinnacle Studio for iPad. Much easier than PC based editors.

    Thanks Mr. goodkat,

    I saw that you have been using the Vegas version but notice the Sony Movie Studio 13 Platinum in which I guess its a down scale of the Vegas series but a little cheaper.....I ordered a copy last night...it looks like it will do what im looking for.

    Have you been flying the Phantom Quad for very long ?? I just order one and should be receiving it today or Monday.....and tricks I need to know ?? lol

    Thanks,

    TxRider

    I use Corel Video Studio X7 and picked it up on Amazon for only $55 (downloadable version).It has a lot of stock filters and effects and includes Mercalli 2.0, Boris Graffiti, and Vitascene 2.0 plugins. The Adobe stuff is probably better, but I'm not happy that Adobe is moving everything to subscription based and cloud based services.

    Yeah. It has problems with editing large files. If I had 15 minutes of video, I'd have to reboot my machine, make sure nothing else was loaded and then try and edit it. I got frustrated and went to Adobe Premiere Pro. I'm so glad too.

    What's everyone's opinion on Pinnacle studio for both iPad and PC?

    I don't have experience with the PC version, but I find PS4iPad easy and quick. Much better than iMovie or anything like that. It has limitations, but very powerful, easy to use.

    I travel with my iPad and use it for my P2V+ display. I use the Apple Camera Connect Kit to download/backup the aerial footage to my 128gb iPad Air, and leave the video file on the micro SD card. That way I have everything in two places and less chance of losing content.

    I just returned from 21 days in Italy, France and Germany. I flew/filmed everywhere and backed up every night. Since the aerial footage, video and still images was already on my iPad, it was easy to edit in PS4iPad at night if I wanted to. I came back with lots of pre edited video. I did video editing on the train, in the air and in my hotel room. I even did some drinking a beer on the patio of a chateau I was staying in. I filmed everything in 1920/1080P and output finished video in the same format. The music files are also on my iPad, so I dropped in audio files too.

    Here's a link to a video I finished yesterday using only my iPad:

    Just to clarify, the Adobe Elements software is NOT monthly, that's only the Adobe Creative Cloud Suite of apps.
    Premiere Elements is able to handle a large variety of formats, and is pretty streamlined for the casual user.

    Ok, I got one ...what's is the best settings to render with vegas? I have searched everywhere I usually get a ton of noise and just crap looking video from my vision, I know the camera is not a comparison for the gopro but it still should look better than it does in theory.

    there is not much of a difference between those versions. I have been flying P2 for the last 3 months but i fly it occasionally.

    what i do is i shoot 1080p 60fps and crop it to 720p on vegas to avoid seeing props.
    if you have CUDA supported graphics card, make sure you use Sony mp4 when rendering and enable GPU rendering
