I record long (around 8 minutes) one-shot videos from a remote controlled aircraft, on a GoPro (HD 3, Silver). Editing is very hard for me, as I am not sure how the good guys do it. Can someone tell me how you would go about it? I usually grab maybe 3 minutes from an 8 minute film..
I usually drag the whole video onto the time line, and then play it... and then split where I want to cut... So I have a while lot of splits. I then have to go through them again and see what I want and don't want... Takes ages.
Is this the best way, or are there more better methods? Like, using the trimmer? I can't see how to cut from there...
Also, I want to stablise just one area of the video... so I cut and place the bit I want onto the time line. But when I go to effects and stabilise, it only allows me to stabilise the entire 'source' video... not just the section I selected. Is that normal?
I'm running version 12 of Sony Movie Studio..
