if only my GoPro vids looked that cool

The pro's have it so good... They turn on their gopros, go for a ride, and it's all bangers!!
(Aug 11, 2012 at 13:02)
scracer13, that's a good call... my go pro vids don't look as nice either.... -__- what's up with that? Is it my vid program? Computer?
(Aug 11, 2012 at 13:06)
It must be the computer!

It's the way you compress and export it. There's a magical setting for different cameras and video players. Try giving it a Google and test some different settings out. It helped to that there were no shadows from clouds or anything too.

its mostly to do with light, there filming this in an open area on a sunny day
(Aug 11, 2012 at 17:10)
@xignigenax maybe you should clean the lense of your gopro
(Aug 11, 2012 at 20:46)
From what I understand, its all about your export and compression settings which are dependent on what program you're using of course. But really the main difference is who is editing the footage, for example this that's edited by someone who knows what they're doing
looks insanely better than the gopro footage that I edit. I wish Go Pro would make that information known
(Aug 11, 2012 at 20:53)
if you edit with final cut convert your gopro footage to apple prores. that helps alot.
(Aug 11, 2012 at 22:38)
I'm betting that's a Go Pro 2...Go pro 2 has better contrast, and video quality overall. Add that with a good video editor and will look golden.
(Aug 11, 2012 at 22:49)
Nah that's not the reason why. I was lucky enough to experience the first HD Go-Pro and the newer 2 version and even though its def. improved, its not enough to make that much of a difference. My Green River self edit was with the original and the Hood River one was with the new one. They were both edited by the same programs provided by the university. It's def. how you compress and export the footage that makes the difference.
(Aug 12, 2012 at 12:57)
The reason your GoPro footage doesn't look like this video is because you don't have someone color correcting and sound sweetening it. GoPro has a whole team of editors at Crankworks making their footage look epic.....Thats why the footage looks so good. Not your computer, compression, or the light....Your footage will never look like that straight out of the camera.....
(Aug 12, 2012 at 14:35)
Umm... compression, editing software and light have a large part in determining the quality of the footage... and yeah its obvious that color/contrast correcting is always a part of the editing process if you want your footage to look as banger as possible but I'm pretty sure that export/import settings, your software and what conditions you shoot in play a much larger part. There's a reason why it takes so long to set up one shot. You've gotta be quite the n00b to think that it'll look that good raw off the card, or that light is the main factor in making the footage look great, however, haha.

Put it on 60 fps, more realistic movement.. And for editing use after effects for lens effects and stuff an then put it trough final cut.. Result is mint! Light is also very important..

Every time I read McGarry's name I think of the Huck Wizard...

When the events come on. Where do you go on PB to watch them live? Even when its supposed to be happening I couldn't find anything!
(Aug 11, 2012 at 13:39)
Is this gonna be live on pinkbike or do i have to go to the whistler website to watch it?
(Aug 11, 2012 at 14:00)
(Aug 11, 2012 at 13:25)

(Aug 11, 2012 at 17:02)

(Aug 12, 2012 at 4:58)
