Hey for anyone who can help. I want to know how to properly compress/upload my future videos so there is no black around it and the thumbnail is letter box. And any tips on stopping frame tearing and keeping up fps. Sucks shooting HD then seeing it be brought down.

I used the latest FCP and I tried to use compressor but it split up the audio and video so I couldn't upload with sound. Anyway I am really bad with the whole compression and upload thing so any help is welcome.

I use Compressor 3.5 and for pinkbike I found the following settings to be pretty mint.

Encoder:
H.264 Mov, 8000 kbits/sec, Multi-Pass encoding, AAC Audio, 44.100 kHz, 128 kbps CBR

Frame Controls:
Resize Filter - Better (Linear filter)
Output fields - Same as source
Deinterlace - Better (Motion adaptive)
Rate Conversion - Better (Motion compensated)

Resolution - 720x405

Heres the latest..I'm pretty stoked on how it came together, but I was wondering what could be changed/done better? I know next time to bring a weight or something so the dolly shots arent shaking like a leaf.

Colour correction yo. It makes a big difference.

Yeahh I did do that in some clips but not all of em, I'll do it for the next video ( probably a Goatstye one) for sure!! thanks man!

Here are my sequence settings. Don't pay attention to where it says 1080i, the field dominance is set to none so it's progressive.

Keep in mind that these settings are for ProRes 422 files that I got from transcoding the original H.264 .mov file that comes from the cam. You can find out more about how to trandcode and all that using Compressor on goole.

I might just be spacing out but I'm drawing a blank on what the project settings are.

Here is my export settings for pinkbike from Compressor.

Hey, I just got a gopro hd ealier this summer and started filming and editing for the first time. I'm finding both filming and editing to be pretty difficult but I'm really enjoying it.

I've put together a few videos to showcase a few rides we've done this year, but I think I'm most happy with my two most recent videos and would love some feedback.

Yes, I know, use a tripod, try to get less shitty camera men... I have a tripod but it's a bit bulky to take along on rides, and I'm working on the camera men...

I prefer 49er, but maybe if I removed entire first song/accompanying video from mount seven it might be better.

Anyway, hope you like them, let me know what you think.

ok.. I'm also kind of partial to this one.

hey i have a quick question. what hardware do i need to make a sort of "pole mount" for my gopro to shoot kind of 3rd person style. like a rod that you attach to a helmet and film yourself while riding.
