Anyone Fly Drones? Anyone Process Data After Flying Drones? I Need Suggestions!

I'm a photographer.

I'm a hobbyist.

I am not a videographer.

I am certainly NOT a professional!




Have been flying my drone more lately and need some advice on how to process these massive 4K cinematics!

I know Lightroom CC will categorize and organize these files, but where should I edit?
I have the photographer subscription for Lightroom CC and Photoshop CC...

Is Photoshop decent for video? Or not at all?

I'd rather not pay for another monthly subscription... I have the entire adobe suite at work, so maybe I can explore options there and see what I like before committing at home.



I'll be doing some data capture for work too, but that's going to be GIS application and will likely need a dedicated software from ESRI, Pix4D, etc.

Thanks all!

I think Adobe Premiere Pro is for video editing.

I use Blender occasionally for videos, it's a freeware but it might be a little overkill for general editing and if you don't use it very often handling can be confusing sometimes (YouTube tutorials help a lot)

I'll check that out..

I'm all about open source software, but agree it can be overwhelming if it's not used very often - also seems to be a lack of support documentation for a lot of those applications

DaVinci Resolve 15 is about the most capable free video editor:

DaVinci Resolve 15 | Blackmagic Design

But the free version is limited to processing max resolution UltraHD (3840x2160) or 3102x2048 (VistaVision). The full Studio version has no resolution limits and other pro features, like collaborative workflow. But it costs $299.

Biggest caveat is that Resolve seems a serious Hollywood grade tool & has a steep learning curve.
