Gopro setting for multirotor arial videos

For those who use Gopros can you please share what your settings to get optimum aerial  videos? thanks

Might depend on which model GoPro you have.

I have a GoPro2 and typically shoot at 720p 60fps

I have just also got the Gopro 2, any reason why you prefer 720 at 60fps to 1080 at 30fps? I would assume the higer resolution at 1080 will give more space for editing and cropping etc  or maybe i have it wrong.

Brian

I also use 720 @ 60FPS. I mainly use this (and forget why) because of the 60FPS, I may want to slow-mo some segments. I always forget about this while editing. Someone needs to slap me next time I go flying!!

Brian :wack0

Balders

60fps does give super smooth half-speed playback, which when flying can be very useful  at smoothing things out.  I';ve used it loads in my video';s, from keeping a surfer in frame for longer, to doing what appears to be a graceful flag flyby which was infact a bit hurried and wobbly in real time.

Thank you for the explanatory comments I will set my to 760 x60 fps.
Do you slow it down by reducing the fps to 30 while editing in Cineform studio?

shaktar

if you can get a download of twixtor then you can do super slowmo stuff.

This is something i did a test with at only 60fps.


Brian

That is soooo cool! I';ll be able to get all my crashes in super embarrassment slow-mo speed!

Brian :wack0

Just a small point. Really we should be using multiples of 25fps in the UK and Europe because that';s the way the PAL TV system works. 30fps (and multiples thereof) are for the American NTSC TV System.

It tends not to matter too much when we use Computers for playback and indeed, most modern UK TV systems will happily playback  NTSC formatted video (ie 30 of 60fps).

However, I always try and format my recordings and playback for UK PAL systems - i.e. 25fps - or 50fps if I need to slo-mo

There are good reasons for this - but let';s not get to techy eh?

Brian

Just tried that Twixtor, and WOW! There may be a bit of super slow-mo in my next Smokey videos!!

Smokey is my bestest friend by the way...


In fact I may mess around with this video for a bit and see what happens...

I tried to download twixtor but all i find is an adon version of it for other applications. Does it come as a standalone program?


VinHex

Where is the download for addon and what software does it add on too

Ok thanks, i was looking for a standalone stabilizer. I will just stick to virtualdub for now.

A thought I had reading this topic. I started shooting 1080/25 and was advised to change to 720/60 for the reasons explained previously. Then I discovered a problem. I shoot video hand-held with a DV video camera  that uses 25/50 Hz PAL. It may just be my editing program but it doesn';t cope well with importing different standards, i.e., if project set to PAL 25Hz it will not read stuff recorded at NTSC 30/60 in the same project!

For that reason I have gone back to the PAL settings on the GoPro to allow merging from different sources.

I';m not saying that the program can';t import different standards, just that I haven';t found how - yet!

I';m currently using Corel VideoStudio Pro X5!  :whistling:

Look for Sony Vegas, or Adobe Premier Pro! They';ll do it fine.

Only just changed this as previous product (name escapes me) frequently crashed without warning and no upgrade path (at a reasonable price).  :hmm:

It';s not a major problem, more something I became aware of after it flagged a couple of vids as duff. Then I found the PAL/NTSC problem! For the sake of 5 or 10 fps I don';t think I';ll change editor again!

Ho hum, go away snow, I want to fly!!  :angry:

Just found this open source software for Linux and Windows. Just installed it on my Linux machine (why did I ever bother with windoze!) and now looking through my vids to find something to slow mo.

First test of the open source slow mo software mentioned above.

Once the scant documentation has been read it begins to make sense and is easy enough to use. As your man says in the section about rendering - now is the time to go and have a big lunch - it took nearly 40 minutes on my 8 core desktop with a 1Gb nVidia card. You can set up the processing for card or CPU as I found out after the render.

Footage was downloaded from YouTube and is from Korean TopGear - as it was downloadable I have made the rash assumption that it is there to promote TopGear and is public domain. If I am wrong then please delete this post Mr. Moderator  :blink

For  me  i has  to be  1080@ 50 or 25FPS  and Medium FOV
If I  want really crisp footage I';d use 2.7K
