Is there anyway to stop Videos sound/music going out of sync,I know it has something to do with Slow - mo but i've seen videos with slow-mo and they were fine.Is it some way you compress the file or something else????
just match audio bitrates with bitrates from your video audio. should be fine.

Hey, not bad start. I'd suggest taking shots from different placements rather than just standing at eye level on the side of the trail and filming the rider coming towards you. Also use good songs. And test out some panning.

@TheSupreme777 that was also a good start. Obviously filming on a contour head cam is pretty restrictive so i'd suggest getting your hands on an actual video camera. You defiantly have the location though. That place is sick!

Hey guys I have a canon t2i with 18-135 lense. Not a heavy setup but i want to get a good smooth fluid head tripod that doesnt kill me on price. Like under 300. Let me know with any ideas!

Thanks a lot man and im fairly sure that is just a head any ideas for the legs? correct me if im wrong about it being just a head

Yes its the head, that's the part that really makes the difference. Find some solid legs and you're sweet. I have manfrotto xb755 legs, might be out of your budget range though, I dunno.

I just wanted to know what you guys think of this recent edit. Some of the things you will notice is that everything looks really close, and that's because in premiere pro CS5 the border of the raw video was outside the border lines on Premiere. Also the parts that are in slow motion are choppy because my camera (http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/product.asp?product=1499) only shoots in 30 fps.
Lastly, none of these shots were done with a tripod just for simplicity.

i would try using a song that hasnt been used in a popular video.. and also try staying away from zooms unless they are fluid the whole way through. also, i think you would benefit from more camera movement too. and stay away from choppy slowmos haha. getting much better tho


lol at first i was like: what, why did he get out of the passanger side and then take his helmet out of the drivers side!? then i realized oh yea... we are backwards

This is pretty good, I like how the GoPro was stabilized and the color looked pretty good. Keep it up and as always, have fun!
