    My videos are looking great, but when I import them into Windows Movie Maker they completely lose their sharp resolution. Is this due to limitations on WMM? Or something else that I might be doing? I took the SD card from the Mavic and imported the file from the the card onto my desktop. Is this the right way of getting the HD videos to my computer or should I be using a USB connection?

    I am trying to find the most efficient way to get my videos from the Mavic online to site like Vimeo without losing the beautiful crisp quality.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks

    It might help to add that I have the video set to 3840 x 2160, 30 fps.

    Considering that Windows Movie Maker is basically Freeware, I wouldn't expect too much from it. Does it even support HD?

    Thanks!

    What video editing software would you recommend for Windows? Previously I have read that Adobe is good but I gather it's on a subscription basis. Would prefer to buy something once and have it paid for. But open to suggestions.

    GoPro studio is worth trying and it's free.
    I would've thought Moviemaker could do basic editing though, at export stage things can be tricky, it might be best to render as a full size file back to computer.
    Having said that I'm not sure how it deals with 4K. 1080p should be no problem.

    Davinci Resolve has a free version I just started to use and have had good results with but I'm a relative Newbee.
