The (centuryofthe) self edit. GoProCamera.

First test with the new GoPro camera. The good news is the camera is wicked, the bad news is I had the camera on a ski pole in the morning which looks pretty cool but it is kind of  a hassle to carry around. In the afternoon I had the camera attached to my helmet which is great to ride with, but the video is kind of dull. It will be better if you follow someone to have some more going on in the frame I guess.

I didn’t play with the speed at all, although it looks almost fast forward at times, just cut different bits of vid together. In hindsight I think it could be way shorter, (especially the first riding shot) but it’s a first test so not really worth the hassle of re-editing etc. I’m still trying to figure out the best render/compression settings, and came across some articles about it after I made this so should be better quality next time. I filmed this up in Muehlbach, Austria with some peeps from work.

    My edit of our GoPro hero HD footage can be found here:

    My best footage came from a 2m tall skier. They do come in handy sometimes. Otehr tip: I shot 720p 60 frames, but you loose the frames in iMovie. I use movieedit on Mac ( to take a 10secs/60fps to a 20secs/30fps . That gives you nice sharp slowmo for editing afterwards.
    Nice video!
