Hello people,
I'm a real beginner with DJI and Spark.
I've seen beautiful videos created by people posted in this forum.
My question is:
What's the app name to create them?

I've visited the DJI Spark downloads page, but I've not found nothing interesting.
Can you suggest me some apps, templates and other interesting things I can use to create some nice videos from footage captured by Spark, please?

Regards,
ghale

Hi there, thanks for the inquiry. I hope one of our valued Customer can share their tips and suggestion with the apps. You may also use DJI Go 4 app to use other feature of the Spark and edit your videos. Should you have further question, please let us know. Thank you.

Adobe Premier Pro is just right what you need for video and Adobe Lightroom for foto.

I own a licence for Final Cut Pro. Can be this a good alternative?
I'm a real beginner with videos. And Mac. And, of course, Spark!

I was also fan of the layer based video editing tools but once I've tried node based (Davinci Resolve), I am not going back to layer based.... And the last version (15.2) got Fusion integrated into Resolve.... it's just mindblowing and yes, free.

ghale,

I use Hitfilm Express and love it. It's free and very easy to use with plenty of features. Many of which I don't even use.

Good luck buddy

Hey Stetson,
I've seen that they give Effects Plug-ins for free, too.
Can you use them with Hitfilm?

I'm pretty green when it comes to the video editing buddy. I'm really not sure.

I've checked on website.
That's interesting: they offer free effects for 10 different apps from different vendors.

I'm also a new Spark flyer and video maker.  I had some problems with choppy finished product using the DJI Go editor.

I have just started putting the SD card into my PC and have downloaded VSDC  (for free) to play with the footage.  Happy with it so far.

Hello @Fisho1

I've checked VSDC homepage.
I'll give it a try, too.
I've so many apps now that I have to choose one product to start.

Thanks to everyone, of course!

In my experience, the DJI Go app has issues with rendering video smoothly. I used color/brightness adjustments and modified clip speed. Perhaps that trips it up and an update is needed. I went back to iMovie on Mac and had great results. The Mac version of iMovie does have a decent suite of adjustments for color, white balance, levels, clip speed, etc. which is necessary to get the most pop out of Spark clips. If you spring for pro software like Final Cut Pro or Premiere, you can do a lot more, but there's a learning curve and cost.

I agree about learning curve of both apps.
