Just keeping a running tab of the OpenSource software apps I am using lately that can be used with the Mavic.  I will be switching to Linux permanently at some point, but these still work on Windows too.  You are still welcome to pay boatloads of money to Adobe or whomever if you want though.  With OpenSource lately, there is really no need.  Not everything here is probably OpenSource, but most of it is.  Hopefully this list helps someone here.

This is what I am currently using (to be updated over time):

Non-Linear video editor:  https://kdenlive.org/

RAW DNG Editor:  https://www.digikam.org/

Video player: https://mpc-hc.org/
(VLC has too many pauses in it for smooth playback, and MPC has always been good to me over the years)

EXIF editor:  http://www.colorpilot.com/exif.html

Batch image resizing:  https://www.multipleimageresizer.net

Easy images to video:  http://en.cze.cz/Images-To-Video
(Note:  Just for fun, I used Blender on the output to see if I could make it into an NLE and it worked flawless, but it took some time to set up)

Photoshop replacement:  https://www.gimp.org/

Image creation, NLE, do everything package:  https://www.blender.org/  (Note very hard to use and learn)

Audio editor:  http://goldwave.com/

Batch audio processing:  http://www.exactaudiocopy.de/

This list is a good start for anyone interested.

Per vmich:
Davinci resolve (Note: limited to 1440p):  https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/davinciresolve

Davinci Fusion (Limitation unkown but I will test it.): https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/fusion/features

Nik collection (Plug-in for Adobe - Google says no further updates however):  https://www.google.com/nikcollection/

I would add to that:
DaVinci Resolve for video editing and color grading (Black Magic Design),
Fusion for compositing (Black Magic Design),
the Nik collection for photo editing (Google)

I assume you mean the Windows version.  You need to unpack it and then follow these instructions to get FFMPEG installed:

You mean these?  It is all in there.

Note the next menu down has your white balance and color, etc.

Thanks for adding the links ;)

The Nik collection also works as standalone, although it is probably less user friendly. I am using it standalone on Mac and it works great. Just don't forget to work on a copy of your pictures, since some modules are lacking the very useful "Save as..." command.

DaVinci Resolve works with 4k (import and export). I am not aware of any limitation at 1440p. I have the latest stable version installed (12.5), running on Mac OS. Maybe the beta version 14 has limitations?

Might be.  This is the text on the differences from their site.  Maybe it is wrong?

The free version of DaVinci Resolve has all of the professional editing, legendary color correction and Fairlight audio tools you need for SD, HD and Ultra HD work at up to 60 frames per second. DaVinci Resolve Studio adds support for 4K and higher, along with frame rates up to 120 fps....

I would also add Shotcut to the list of free video editors. Totally free and no limitations at all. Has Windows, Mac and Linux versions available.
