    The Video Thread

    I'm now the owner of a nifty GoPro HD and have been having some fun shooting video on it. Am I the only one here that's doing this? Clicky clicky to play! I like the segment from about 6:00 in.

    The locale is Lucas Valley Road. I ride this road almost every weekend and never tire of it. The first big corner is about a mile from my house.

    Dave I am embarrassed to say I've owned one for a few months and have yet to try it out.
    I am so ashamed.
    Side case mount?
    If that's your first attempt I am impressed.
    Did you cross a double yellow?

    Nice

    That morning sunlight colored the ride nicely. Were those a pair of wild turkeys at about 1:17?

    anyway thanks for sharing.

    Nice video Dave, I'm hoping Santa brings me a GoPRo HD. I've been very good this year.

    Video... Who'd shoot video?





    Both of those were shot with a bike mounted Contour HD camera; the older version that only does 720p. I'm thinking of adding a second camera for multiple POV. maybe the new go pro, or maybe the soon to be released Drift HD.

    Don't get me started on recording rides! http://rmridervideo.com

    I've made every mistake one could make, and still repeat them.

    Selectively recording rides is a wonderful way to relive/revisit the journey or adventure.

    Thanks and yeah, pretty much my first attempt. Obviously, I need to work on editing...

    I used a GoPro HD and used the suction cup mount to attach it to the tank of the R100.

    I need to work on shorter clips interspersed with clips of other viewpoints. I've got a helmet mount and am adding a mount to show things like hands, speedometers, shifting feet and that sort of thing.

    I should be able to cook up some pretty awful stuff in the near future.

    I think that was some kind of refraction that made it look like I was over there. Parallax error...

    Editing

    Dave Swider brought up a good point, editing.
    I am curious as to what you (speaking editorially) might be using to edit your video shoots?

    Thanks.

    Didn't we just have this thread? Lots of PC choices under $100. http://video-editing-software-review.toptenreviews.com/ for some reviews. On the Mac side there is always iMovie already sitting on your machine. You can now also get Adobe Premiere Elements from the App Store. Or Final Cut Pro X at about $300. Or go crazy and spend $2500 for the newest version of Avid Media Composer.

    Yeah probably but I was not paying attention.
    Tell ya what, next time you see me, slap me.
    But I'll slap you back!

    Seriously though, thanks.
    (Don't thank him! But he was so nice Nice schmice, we're gonna slap him next time, aren't we? Must you argue about everything?! YES!)

    Now can you do anything about the ridiculously straight roads around here?
    Just kidding!

    Could this be the new oil/tires/FD thread?

    Thanks! I live in the Other California, the one you don't see on TV. Believe it or not, I'm all of 15 miles outside of San Francisco.

    One thing I'm rarely accused of is holding up traffic.

    Yes, we must ride together some day.

    Like I'm worried about a thread. I've got others.

    In any case, I've been using iMovie and a trial version of Final Cut Pro. I really like Final Cut Pro. However, now that I've managed to stuff my Macbook full, I need to figure out how to move my entire iMovie library out to a networked drive. That's going to be this weekend's effort, I think.
