Regarding the Magix video software.........there is no need to purchase the Pro version unless you really have higher demands.
With the normal versions, which you can find here:
you can both edit 360 videos and photos, but also create reframed videos and photos and combine multiple scenes in 1 final video.
Of course the software can also handle all kinds of transitions, zooming, color, white balance corrections etc and is not complicated.
Regarding the reframed 360, I have also created so called tiny planets with the Magix video software.
Personally I am using the Premium version, because this allows me to even add greater effects to my video result.
Note that the input from the GoPro Max is 4K - H264 (this is the setting you should use from the Gopro Exporter software).
There is no need to export cineform and you will not notice any lost in resolution. Remember that your outcome after rendering will always be 1920x1080 for a 360 video.
I also noticed that the Hero mode of the Max is not 4K....however the quality is much better than a regular 1920 so don't get confused.
Don't forget to turn your preference settings in the camera to high bit rate (hero mode)....this certainly improves the results.
Yes you can also use the Insta360 studio software, but the challenge is that you have to edit each scene 1 by 1. The results are different MP4 files which you can combine also in other video editor programs.
Again I can do everything with the Magix software in Windows desktop.
there is a lot available on youtube, such as https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Za134pu9ZE8

Also regarding Magix video and 360 editing / reframing feel free to watch these 2 tutorials (video 1 and 2). They have been made some while ago on youtube, but everything works as explained still with todays Magix software (and no need to buy the Pro version as explained in my previous post).
From Magix you can also watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yD0hmDeVCEQ

You can use the GoPro App to reframe your shots, that works in both Android and IOS mobile devices.
You can join this group and notifications for the Beta windows software will be announced. You've missed out on the first round of beta testing, but scroll through the page until you find the sign up sheet and you may be eligible for the 2nd round of beta testing.
(I.E. GoPro haven't even finished the first round of BETA testing yet, so the player is far from ready. This means that they can't possibly give a date nor a hint of a date as they themselves just don't know. So it will be ready when it's ready).
