    Hi, Can anyone recommend a good IOS video editing app? I am currently trialing the GoPro Quik app, but I am experiencing some niggling issues with it. Thanks

    You probably benefit more from a system upgrade if you're still running a GT 710. Current drones usually output files in formats that are better handled by new hardware. I myself have similar issues and so far all my research has lead me to believe I would need a current gen CPU and GPU with at least 32gb ram and ideally some M.2 SSD cards to be able to handle the modern footage standards for the coming three to five years or so. Alternatively you can film in lower resolution. E.g. stick to...

    Hi Folks, Just joined the forum so apologies if the question is a but weird. I have recently bought a drone and I'm having a ball flying it. Problem is my PC is a bit slow at editing the footage. I increased the RAM tody from 8GB to 16GB to start improving things. Nest item in my sights is my graphics card. Currently I'm running a NVIDIA GeForce GT 710 which I believe is a bargain basement card. Can anyone recommend any graphics cards they use in their editing set-up? Maybe an AMD card or...

    Thanks Grapes. In the end we opted for a purpose built camera - Brinno TLC2020 with weatherproof housing. It seems to do the job although I can't say Im impressed with the quality.

    Hey Tim, sorry I didn't notice this one earlier. I've looked into this in the past. Different budgets have different solutions and different building dates have different options as well. For me there where two systems that where viable. An all in one system based around a DSLR and one around a GoPro. If it's a one off you may want to look at hiring. My research was back in 2017 or so and back then for me CamDo was the best budget option: https://cam-do.com/pages/construction-time-lapse-packs...

    You can probably do a fairly cheap sensor trigger before the ramp. Alternatively, get someone to press record in exchange for some beers or something :D Looks like mad fun by the way. I've been looking into electric mountain boards because we don't have slopes like that over here but there's some forest trails and BMX pump tracks. Shame those prebuilt boards are quite expensive! Been eyeing Trampa stuff but they're like triple the price I'd be willing to pay for that stuff :/. I realise this...

    Thanks Tim! Yep that's what I've been doing so far, but it's a recurring problem(I e. We ride pretty regularly so get a lot of footage) so I was hoping that I could find something that I could set up once and then use for years... Sounds like it might be a bit more complicated than I'd thought though! My other solution I was considering was some kind of motion triggering on the actual recording, so I will have a look into that a bit further too. Thanks for your advice!

    There probably is but you need something more specific than you have stated. In the example you have given there is only the beginning and about one 15 sec period in the middle where there is no motion. So you'd need somehing that can detect motion within a specific part of the image. But that most likely won't be enough as you'd want to see several frames before and several frames after that. Quite honestly, you'll probably spend as long setting up the paraneters as you would going through...

    Hi all, Looking for some recommendations. I've got a few hours of footage of me and some friends hitting some jumps. I'd like to save myself the time of going through the footage by hand and editing out the long gaps in between the action. Is there any software that can detect motion in the video(i.e. someone going through the frame) and then save just that bit of video? Thanks in advance for any help!

    So as you ask for a windows video editor or a mac video editor, idk, here is my advice. I'm using "Movavi Video Editor Plus 2021" on my Mac, but it also works on windows. It has a lot of cool tools and it is very easy in use. I've been using this app for so long, since i've bought my first computer (Acer Aspire One D150). It is wonderful and I strongly recommend it to you!

    MAGIX has discontinued the VEGAS Movie Studio product line. Version 17 is the current and final version of the product. It has been replaced by a product called Movie Studio 18 (three versions), which is developed by a different team in Germany and does not have much to do with the U.S. Madison version (VEGAS Movie Studio). Currently it is still marketed at vegascreativesoftware.com, but it's not considered a VEGAS product.

    You have to use HitFilm Express, Final Cut Pro X, Adobe premier, etc. these are best software for video editing. If you want to make animated videos then you can use Blender and Animaker. My friend use Blender and Animaker for animated videos.

    You won't find a plug in to do that - it's done manually and is quite a bit of work. 1. Copy the video to two tracks. 2. On the upper track play forward until you get to the point where you want the second image (which up to that point will eventually be the "still" version of teh model) to start moving. Let's call this the "merge frame" as this is the point where the two videos will become one. 3. Create a still image of that frame. 4. Delete everything on the upper track that is before...

Control via a PC rather than the camera itself? What about frequency of shot? Fixed exposure or auto? Obviously this will require rock steady stabilization, but what other requirements? Any other advice/recommendations (for equipment or otherwise)? This is for a one-off project.

    Most likely you can manually change the refresh rate of your monitor. Mine is kind of old so it's stuck at 60 Hz unless I lower the resolution a few steps below the native resolution, at which point I get the option of 75 Hz. That might mesh better with 50 Hz.

    I recently acquired a 60fps camcorder, previously I was filming in 50fps. The 50fps video was silky smooth viewed on a PAL TV (via a media player), less so via the PC and it's monitor. The 60fps footage plays silky smooth on the PC and it's monitor (Refresh rate: 60 Hz) but choppy played via the PAL TV, regardless of media player settings as it only likes PAL footage. Is there a way or a refresh rate for a new monitor that will play both 50fps and 60fps smoothly so both can be viewed on the...
