Many thanks for your help. I think I am right in saying that F P requires a monthly subscription and if that is correct I am not really wanting to take that step. Had a look at DR on the iPad and although it is a bit different I am happy to have a bash.DR has a much larger learning curve and the serious color grading tools are not in the free edition. It does however have that FREE edition and the big brother is available if you want to grow with it. That said, FCP is probably easier to use for most folks and pretty straight forward. If you're willing to invest the time my suggestion would be DR but if it's just home video kinds of stuff FCP is entirely capable.
