what is a simple easy to learn and use editing software for a MAC. I recently got my part 107 back in January
No, but there's no mention of "free" being a requirement in your original post. I just mentioned the "free" options since you're on a Mac (so am I) and there's already some great software as part of the Mac OS load.but that isnt free
I agree the free version of DaVinci Resolve is excellent choice to get starting with editing drone footage. At first glance it looks very intimidating, but there are many YouTube videos to help the beginner to get started. It works great on PC or MAC, as well as, older machines with a few tweaks to the program settings.@Fred Garvin provided excellent example tools within Mac. The FCPX is excellent purchase, as a plus, you can use on multiple Macs under same purchase & acct ID and receive years of updates under single purchase... no yearly renewal costs or subscriptions. Same for Compressor and Motion programs.
The DaVinci program is excellent, and base model free... and works on both Mac & Win10. If you're using I2 X5S or X7, you may want to purchase the Pro version eventually.
Another great option for Photos on Mac. On1 Pro and Luminar 4 & AI. Both are a purchase, but license usable on Mac & Win10 and full featured. Luminar 4 is being faded, but currently fully supported. Both are perpetual license not subscription based.
If videos are via Mavic or similar platform, and IF you have an iPad Pro in your pack another great low cost option; check out LumaFusion. Can closely duplicate Mac / Win tools on iPad Pro with all the common features and use of Pencil interfac is great. It'll easily load and edit video files from Mavic or similar cameras and has additional LUTs, various transitions and multiple tracks video & audio. You'll be amazed how LumaFusion handles the videos and processing speeds.
