While viewing old posts on this forum, came across your question. Not sure what you settled on, but I highly recommend 'ShotCut' (spelled correctly). It is very full featured , FREE, video editing software that I've been using to edit videos from my drone. It's interface is simple and intuitive and will do all or more of what expensive video editing software will do. Give it a go.....you'll like it, especially for free.
Jim, thank you for the ShotCut recommendation. I just downloaded it today and watched the tutorial video. I can't wait to get started. I can't believe it's free, can't beat that price!
