I got a GoPro (3 Silver) which I attach to my Quad Copter and film my learning experience. But on the weekend, I got to go go-kart racing, and decided to take my camera, and was lucky to get a helmet with a GoPro attachment. So, I filmed the races, of whihc there were 4, lasting around 12 minutes per race. However, from Start to End of each race session, is around 21 minutes of video. So at the end of the day, I have 84 minutes of video to edit.
Now, my problem...
I need to know how to handle 4 x 21 minute files (Actually, lands up being around 12 files, as the GoPro splits at 2Gb, I think).
I load them into the 'Bin' (Sony Movie Studio 12)... but then, to get the bits I want from the video is a very strange process.
I draw the first video onto the timeline, then watch it. When I see something, I 'snip' before it starts, and then 'snip at the end. I delete the surrounding video, and move the snip part to the start of the time line. Then, I repeat.. draw the whole video onto the time line, and watch more... and then snip...
Is that the best way? There's a 'trimmer' at the top, but I can't see a way to do what I am doing any more efficient, and snipping seems very hard.
Could someone enlighten me as to how the pro guys do it?
Anyway, here's the 1.03 version (Bad timing, I know! How do you do a video to a beat of song?!)
