Cinematic Drone Editing for Beginners

A Simple 4 Step Process for Creating Beautiful Drone Videos

About the Book

It is getting easier and easier to capture great looking drone video. Drones are becoming cheaper, lighter, and more feature-packed with every new model. So now anyone has access to flying cameras (AKA drones) and can record video, how do you make your drone videos stand out?

The answer: editing.

It is one thing to record video with a drone, but creating a beautiful cinematic end product requires editing. Editing can bring together your drone video footage and create a work of beauty to tell a story or create an emotion in the viewer.
