A day on Patrol

A day riding the 2018 Patrol with Skye and Kyle.

 I love this video, but I'm seeing something weird going on with the framerate. It's especially noticeable in the aerial shots, the trees look like they're skipping across the screen, but it is in some hand held shots as well where the riders look like they're blinking in and out of existence. Looks the same on the Vimeo version.

Is this just on my computer, or is anyone else seeing this? I'm only asking because I like the video so much, I'd like to see the best version of it possible. Maybe a re-upload if the original is smoother?

 My guess would be that they may not have had a neutral density filter for the drone? That would mean that they're using a really high shutter speed to deal with how bright it was. Fast shutter speeds can make video look a little choppy sometimes because the footage is too sharp, kind of like a video game. Human vision likes some motion blur, so when it's absent we notice things look different. Maybe @schilly could answer what his shutter speed was on the drone stuff?

 @scottsecco: you nailed it Scott. In the midst of the wind/rain/snow storm that morning I forgot to throw the ND filters in the bag when loading up. I was bummed.

 Could be what Scott mentioned, and also pan judder where a pan (or a camera move in the drone) is sort of in between a smooth pan and a blurred pan.

Also when shooting in slow-motion your shutter speed naturally has to rise. So shots where it's speed ramped from slow motion to real speed will have the same effect that Scott mentioned.

Rad video though!

 Looking good Kyle and Kevin. You know, most bike company owners don't actually film their own promotional videos and probably none are actually IN said promotional videos. You guys are unusual. Your friend, Boxxerace. Who now wants to ride a Patrol. In Canada. Sheesh!
