Good Morning,
I recently purchased a H520 with a E90 and a CGOET camera.
I'm starting to really enjoy having fun with this, but am now looking at making some videos.
I go fishing a lot and want to make films of my days out.
Can anyone please recommend a software package etc that will help me do these videos, splicing etc etc.
I'm not a Pro, so please keep it as basic as possible for me.
Many thanks in anticipation.

Hi Stuart,
Thanks for that.
Someone at a large UK drone business as suggested any of the following:
1, pix4d (basic knowledge)
2, agisoft (mid range knowledge)
3, contact capture ( i think thats how you spell it??? (top of the list and pro

It gets more confusing as time goes on.
Regards
Shaun

Don' know why a company recommended Pix4d and agisoft as they are both software for mapping, nothing to do with general video. Don' know contact capture. I use Adobe premiere pro and Photoshop, but there are many cheaper alternatives out there, depending how deep in editing you want to go.

An easy and inexpensive editing program is Wondershare Filmora. You can download a trial version to see how it works and there are tutorials on Youtube.

What version of photoshop does video editing???
or do you use photoshop for jpeg editing?
I use Photoshop for editing video as well as photo. I think all the CC versions do video, convert to smart objects, then you can use the camera raw filter, works great for colour grading and then render and import into premiere to edit and add music etc. If you don't convert to smart objects you only adjust 1 single frame

Kev you get better results with that workflow than using Lumetri directly in Premiere? I watch your videos and I like the color grading.

I have been using Photoshop for many years and I cannot get the same results using just Premiere, wish I could as Photoshop renders video so slowly compared to Premiere. The Camera Raw filter in Photoshop is very powerful and love the dehaze feature.

I haven't used Adobe in a long time, and I'm now catching up. It's like starting over, it's all new. I've seen a little color course for Premiere, I'll take a look at it.

Although Photoshop takes longer to get good results, I like it. Although if i can use Premiere that is more intended for video it would be better. It'll be a matter of trying both methods :)

If you want a simple yet powerful FREE tool for professional level outcome with 4K or 1080p, you should download and spend an hour or two with Lightworks. The free version won't allow exporting to a CD, but I can't imagine the need for that in this day of electronic sharing. I love it!

I have been using Final Cut Pro for 10+ years just like some Hollywood editors. It was built for editing video and has evolved. Renders 4K quickly and is only $399! No monthly subscriptions or other cost. Of course it helps to have a very powerful Mac.

I've been using Cyberlink PowerDirector for years. It can be simple for beginners but also has plenty of depth as you gain experience. I really like its speed, even when handling 4K video.

If you use Windows, use Davinci Resolve (Free for HD), Wondershare for Picture in Picture and animated Titles, and Hitfilm Express for effects
