Jesus I use those settings for encoding... I don't understand why it looks shitty... Y U NO LOOK NICE

So I convert the video files into ProRes422 before editing them? And then export them in H.264? Maybe that's the problem. I just import them in H.264 and start editing...

File > Export > Quicktime Conversion

try with that menu

So strait out of FCP without using Compressor then?

Here's my first question.

When you complain the image looking like crap, are you talking about the image looking like crap when it's on PINKBIKE? If so, I can't help because I have yet to find a good pinkbike export setting.

Shoot the entire thing upside down then flip in post. Also, invert the colours.

I was watching this earlier and then realized that I've been to the majority of the places they shot/they were local (can't really say film, right?).

Anyways, timelapses are so over done but this is pretty refreshing.

Snip

I learnt not to export with my NLE (premiere) and rather to send the job to adobe media encoder. If you're using final cut then do it with compressor.

Also your original sequence settings for editing want to exactly match the files going in. Use MPEGStreamclip to encode your footage almost losslessly into ProRes422. Editing in h.264 is laggy as it's so compressed and rendering each clip is a huge time consumer and I've noticed degrades the quality a bit.

I sent a video to adobe media encoder once and it f*cked it up baaaaad. but that could have just been me who f*cked it up. Someone remind me to try it again of my next video

This was probably the most refreshing music video I've ever seen..

No I only use Vimeo for all my videos. Gave up on PinkBike ages ago... I'll try using FCP's export settings. Maybe I'm doing something wrong in compressor which is conflicting with my export settings... I'll give it a go and tell you guys how it goes Smile

I'm gonna be making my first mtb video for a school project in a while. I was looking at editing software and i was thinking of just downloading a 30 day from either Sony Vegas or power director. Which should i use? It can't be super complicated as I'm fairly new to this but I want it to look good. Opinions?

Get vegas or adobe premiere/premiere elements

I've heard, HEARD, good things about power director.

Never actually used it though. Looking at screenshots from the interface, it does look very straightforward.

ladder dolly. the superior dolly

9ft straight ladder

fastest dolly setup time ever

and get really high angles by climbing it

how exactly did you go about making that?
Like how does it roll , smoothly? I was actually thinking of doing this

Well...

- it's a ladder
- it's clunkier than a slider
- tall grassy field does require some prep (flatten out grass)
- wooden platform could be built lighter w/out as much wood
- it's a ladder
- platform space can be small for putting camera at shoulder level and being stable (can't spread legs really far)


Positives...

- it's way friggin longer than a slider
- no PVC pipe bull shit
- it's a rigid track w/out flex (small piles of rocks level it in moments)
- super smooth + dolly's weight for added smoothness
- this particular aluminum ladder is extremely light weight (parents)
- I can climb trees for added height
- anything that's not a grassy field, sets up in seconds
- it can be set up in seconds
- sets up in seconds
- second setup times
- seconds
- as fast as you can put the ladder on the ground seconds

I had no problem being the only person carrying everything. Camera/tripod/sound in bag, ladder in one hand and platform in the other.
