    As a content creator I protect my copyright. There are too many people on YouTube who just use whatever they want without a thought as to it’s ownership. That’s why I gave the response I did. It has nothing to do with being progressive or otherwise. Loser, no. I leave that to others who can’t be bothered to create their own original content.

    So, you think downloading someones video, editing it and re-uploading is not copyright infringement? I’ve got news for you, if you don’t have the owners permission you are infringing their copyright. You can download to view but you have no other rights.

    No, you cannot do that with Resolve. NLE GUIs are designed for horizontal displays.

    Equipment isn’t everything, story is. You can have the best gear but it won’t make a lousy video any better. Also remember that sound is just as an important part of your production as the picture. If you are working with just one actor consider a wireless lavalier mic. An on camera mic can either be too far away from your subject, or pick up too much of the surroundings.
    A good YT channel to look at is the work of Philip Bloom. He is a professional film maker and a lot of his videos are great examples of visually telling a story along with using the right music etc.

    Possibly because they are video editors and not still capture programmes. It’s a case of use the appropriate software for the particular job. DaVinci Resolve can capture stills with one keystroke in the Colour Grading section but these are used for copying grades to multiple clips.
    Where is the problem in using a video player to capture all your stills into a dedicated folder and then using that as a source in your NLE?
    I think your rant is unfounded.
    I have been a Resolve user for the last two years.

    If you have a decent computer have a look at the free version of DaVinci Resolve from Blackmagic Design. It can do everything you require except burn DVDs or Blueray. For those you will need a separate programme.

    I quote from the Movavi website knowledge base “How are Movavi programs licensed?”
    “Any Movavi license grants free updates within the purchased version”
    “Upgrades from version to version are considered as a purchase of a new licence

    I have made the relevant words bold.
    All the information on Movavi product licensing is available on their website. It didn’t take me long to find it as it is not hidden.

    I am not treating this with a simpleton attitude either. Lifetime with regards to software means as long as your operating system will run it. Effectively you have a perpetual licence for the version you own. If Microsoft update Windows tomorrow and the software no longer works, are you going to expect Movavi to give you a free update? I don’t think so.

    Well, if any of you bothered to read the V770 manual you would see that it states on page 40 that you must format the SD card in the camera.
    To thestruggle, if as you say every piece of software or hardware does not work, or work as expected, then it must be something you are either doing or not doing my friend. Possibly doing more research on the products suitability and compatibility with what you want to do before parting with the money.

    Edit functions are on the edit page right above the timeline in Resolve.

    DaVinci Resolve also does this. Very similar to Premiere. There is a very capable free version.

    As you are getting your source video from YouTube you are already at a disadvantage as YT re-encode uploaded video. This means that the bitrate is lower than the original video that was uploaded and it will contain more compression artifacts. The only workround is to download 1080p or 4k. Forget 720p, it is too low a resolution. H264 video is not a good format for editing. For this type of thing I think you will find Premiere overkill, and there’s that monthly subscription as well.

    Have a look at DaVinci Resolve. Excellent professional editing and grading software. It’s available as both a free and paid version. The paid Studio version is only $300 with no subscription and up to now there have been no further charges for version updates

    They do list the frame and bitrates. In the specifications list scroll down to the Recording Mode section.

    Well it’s at 720p and the audio was captured using the on camera mic. Also the camera support is not very stable, so I would say it was probably shot on a consumer camcorder which either had the setting to shoot black and white, or that was done in edit software.

    As the Osmo+ records in MP4(h264) it will already be using the rec709 colour space so no conversion is needed. Premier Pro and FCP can be set to use a host of colour spaces such as Log, rec2020, rec709, Cineform, ACES etc.
