    I think I’m gonna try Davinci Resolve. For some reason my Premiere Pro projects will crash and then I can’t open them. Even when I create a new project and import the old project I’ll still get errors and I’m unable to complete the project. Very frustrating! Anyway thanks for this video. I don’t really wanna learn a new program, but it does me no good to work on a project only to not be able to render it.

    Does anyone know any editing app for a Mac that functions just Windows Movie Maker? Where I can just save a work in my flashdrive and open it as long as I have the app.

    Can you tell me why I am having trouble transferring videos from my lumixs5 mirror less camera to my Mac? QuickTime player says incompatible with mov files.

    Thank You so very much! I really appreciated this video… I have decided to use your recommendation of VN and iMovie… Then when I have mastered these I will come back to your latest video to decide which editor to "upgrade" to! Thank again very much!

    Justin, I love how clearly and comprehensively you review the different tech&related products!
    What would you recommend a Beginner-Intermediate Photo&Video Editor; someone having both the Mac and Win OS?? Like I have the Corel Photo&Video Suite on my Win PC (had good reviews, and was just a one time purchase, so I bought it), but unfortunately, it's not yet available on the Mac OS. I just need to master one application/s for both Photo, and Video editing. I usually prefer a one-time purchase option or something that is compatible to both Win and Mac OS.
    Looking forward for your reply.
    Thank You and Keep up the good work!

    Thank you Justin. Can I say as a small channel you give great advice that's both reassuring and calming. There are too many Youtuber advisers that make me so anxious that I just have to unsubscribe. Thank you for your calmness!

    I hate that some don't let you make one payment, they want you to pay per month, so, in essence, you are renting the software. I prefer to make one payment and that's it. I don't like this, the same with Photoshop. I don't mind buying it, but I mind renting it. Sucks.

    Regarding needing a high spec comp
    Would a macbook pro. 2016 be adequate for these software( specifically davinci resolve)?
