My lack of video editing skills has bothered me for a while. Years, in fact. But I’ve really not had the time to learn this skill between my various jobs and keeping up with gauge orders.
I decided it was time. I’m gonna teach myself to edit videos if it kills me. So here’s my first attempt.
This was shot with my (now apparently ancient) Gopro 3+. I’ve owned this camera for a couple years and have never really done anything with it. I have a full selection of Gopro attachemnts and accessories. I’ve got batteries and a backpack screen. I’ve got the app on my phone.
It was time.
I suction-cup’d the camera various places on Sharka while I ran errands for a half hour. Then I managed to get the files off the Gopro and into an editor. I decided to start with the free Gopro Studio software on this one and see how it was.
All total, the minute and a half video took roughly 6 hours of working time to complete. It was pretty rough. I’m hoping that the next one will be somewhat easier.
Also, this is apparently the very first in-car footage of Sharka EVER. 16 years of ownership and finally there’s a few seconds of in-car video. I should be ashamed that it took this long.
Anyone got any suggestions? A dummys book or a helpful website? Complements or criticism? I’d love to hear it all. Anything would help me on the development of this new skill.
