As the title says, looking for some software for editing/creating videos, preferably free.

    Most devices come with a basic tool. No?
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

  • Yeah, Go Pro comes with something called Quik, which is a bit too basic for what I had in mind.

    I use HitFilm. It's free and a really powerful tool. Loads of official tutorials online for the trickier stuff like motion tracking and green screen, if that's your bag.

    All depends on what you want to use it for.

    If you have an iPad then iMovie will turn out a decent result, if you can get your footage onto it. It’s a bit light touch, but in the end you get a video.
    Cube Reaction GTC Pro 29 for the lumpy stuff
    Cannondale Synapse alloy with 'guards for the winter roads
    Fuji Altamira 2.7 for the summer roads
    Trek 830 Mountain Track frame turned into a gravel bike - for anywhere & everywhere

    Quik is dreadful, agreed. A shame GoPro discontinued Studio which was pretty good.

    iMovie is good if you have a Mac (free, obvs) or DaVinci Resolve for Mac/Windows is more powerful but harder to master.

    Garmin Virb Edit for once Garmin is ok
  • Thanks for all the answers. I'm not using a Mac, but I've found a copy of Go Pro Studio, which is their old software. I'll give that a go.
