Have you heard of VSDC? It's a free video editing software that you can use to edit any video footage–GoPro clips, iPhone clips, DSLR footage… you can even edit up to 4K with VSDC. It's completely free, and there is a Pro version (which is only $20), but honestly–you can do everything you need to with the free version. VSDC is a full-featured free video editor.
