If you’re a professional drone pilot, you’ll need some editing skills. This can be very intimidating for those pilots that have never edited video before.
Today, we take a question from Josh in Kentucky. Josh is a new drone entrepreneur and wants to know how to get started editing his videos. We talk about editing drone videos and give some tips on the best editing software. Additionally, we discuss why hiring an editor may be the best approach to take.
Congrats on making the leap, Josh! Fly safe!
