So here’s my first attempt at a video. It ended up being 5 mins long as it was 4 days worth of footage from Prague. For those that can be bothered watching it please give honest feedback. Disclaimer - this is my first time using LumaFusion, it’s only my second ever video I’ve created and I also haven’t colour graded as I don’t know how to yet :)

Great! Favorite shot was capturing the building sketch...nice camera work there. Panning shots always seemed to have a little catch/snag in the motion, but maybe that’s just my crap Internet connection? All in all an enjoyable viewing experience. :)

it's nice, and not really that far off from photos. You can create presets like you do for photos, it's all good fun.

What accessories/gear do you recommend with gp7? You using a gimbal? Sorry, I’m sure you already posted your setup, but I’ll never find it.

Thanks David, I should have mentioned I shot all the clips in 4k/24fps so not sure if its the frame rate thats causing the slight jerk at times. Although when I check the original footage it doesnt have it so not sure why the final video does? Probably not got a setting correct somewhere!

Edit - The weird thing is that Lumafusion identifies the clips as 4k/25 even though I recorded them in 4k/24 on the osmo. I am then editing it as a 24fps project and uploading as 24fps. I wonder if the Osmos 24 is actually 25 and me forcing it to 24 is causing this lag/stutter. I am re-encoding just now as 4k/25 to see if it cures it. I might just switch to 30fps going forward.

Edit 2 - That sorted it! I am just re-uploading to youtube now. Seems much smoother

David, I won’t answer for Charlie as he knows Waaaaaay more than me on this subject but I just wanted to say that GoPro market the hero 7 as the “gimbal killer” as it has built in stabilisation called hypersmooth. From reviews I’ve seen it’s pretty much as good as a gimbal apart from in low light

Nice 1st vid. The music was...err...interestin​g.  :p I also like your taste in beer! :-) Now we just need to hear you narrate to hear your burr...or is it a brogue? ;-)a

My only nit would be to use a bit less movement of the camera. It's OK to have the camera steady and let the action move around it sometimes too. When you do move the camera, try to keep it slow enough that it's almost unnoticeable.

Overall, I really enjoyed watching and am looking forward to seeing more. Looks like you guys had a great time too.

Speaking of video, I've been trying out TechSmith's "Snagit" to capture my screen for those occasional short clips I do. I have an old, free version of Camtasia (Studio 3) but it doesn't work properly and it only works to capture video. It's a painful process because the video needs to be run through Handbrake to work. With Snagit, the video comes out already rendered as an mp4 file and so far, I like the results.

If I buy the program, it's $49.95

Thanks Gene, I was conscious of the fact I was doing a lot of panning at the time but was basically going in blind and not really sure what I was needing to shoot at all. Hopefully it gets better with practice

if I had to nitpick, scene at 1:29, not a continuous motion, I think there was another scene like that with an abrupt movement. It can use some raw audio of the area at times, like interaction at the bar? It was hard to tell context in some of the scenes, like at the bars could have started with a short clip entering name of said bar. Since the clip was so fast, maybe names of places or split up into video into shorter segments? One clip had a bunch of ireland flags, it went so fast, I couldnt figure it out, especially the following scene was a bunch of statues? The scene with your friend jumping in the frame was quality and funny, moments like that can really make an overall video more interesting. I think the video can use an outro, maybe plane going the other direction as it started or packed bags walking away, something to get that message across. Other than those nitpicks, you're off to a great start!

OBS studio, it's free and designed for this. I do use snagit for work, but not video, OBS is better I think.

You'll need a hand grip or some way of holding the GP. I'm using an all in one selfie, tripod, hand grip https://www.amazon.com …tle_o04_s00?ie=​UTF8&psc=1 (external link)

that's all I have right now, and that'll probably be it for 95% of what I do. I'm also buying this clip: https://www.ebay.com …020887:g:2zkAAO​Swl1RcUJya (external link)

if I ever clip this onto my backpack or child, it'll be there. I wont be skydiving or jumping off cliffs into water, so wont need other mounts ;-)a

no gimbal right now, the gopro 7 is just super stable.

Thanks Charlie. I really need to purchase the controller wheel to smooth the pans out. Trying to vertical pan controlling it with the very edge of the tiny screen is a pita. For horizontal pans I was simply rotating the device. With the controller both pans would be on a wheel and smooth. Fair point about the randomness at times, I honestly didn’t know what I should be shooting at times and it shows a bit. I actually recorded the plane take off and landing on the return journey to mimic the way I started the video but it was at night so the footage wasn’t as usable. The gimbal also levelled itself at an angle for some reason during landing so the horizon was off.

It’s really addictive though, I’m already thinking of ideas for the next videos
