I screwed up on this flight – on the most perfect day imaginable. Blue skies and little or no wind.
Unaccountably, I shot the whole flight with the video setting on H.265
Not a problem for viewing, or for extracting screen grabs as single shots. You may have seen some of those already on this forum.
No, I only realised the problem when I came to try and edit the footage.  My video editor doesn’t support H.265.   Rats!  What now?
I found a free conversion tool on t’internet to transpose it back to H.264, but the results were, to say the least, disappointing.
However, another program produced satisfactory results. But since it came as a free trial, the resulting video was watermarked
at alternating 10 second intervals with the company’s logo.
SO, I’ve had to resort to clipping out the unadorned bits and stringing them together into a short
composition.  Not the Blockbuster I was hoping for
Take a look if you will, and try to imagine what could have been…...

Nice footage, awesome zoom. A shame for the configuration change; the place is splendid.

Thanks for sharing

Thank you. Maybe Premiere does, but I use Davinci Resolve version 14, which only does H.264. Though I
believe version 16 does H.265

Dunno, my friend recommends DaVinci to me. But I spent hours learning Premiere and doesn't ready for changes.

Whichever Software is used, there's a long learning curve, I agree.  Changing to a different one would mean adapting to a new framework, and take some time.

Try using handbrake to convert it back.

That's the one I tried, with unsatisfactory results, unfortunately.
But I won't make the same mistake with the H.264 setting again, so hopefully the need won't arise.
I may try to update Davinci Resolve from 14 to 16.
That would be the solution.

What was unsatisfactory?  The colour or smoothness of playback?

The output was much compressed from the original, and there were artefacts in the video (wavy lines for telephone wires, etc which were not present in the original.)  The software I eventually used gave a satisfactory result, apart from the watermarking in the free demo version.

Sounds like you just needed to use a different preset in handbrake for the output format.

Perhaps, yes.  I tried twice at the highest settings I could find,  getting the same artefacts each time, then lost patience with it. So I tried the other software with better results, but with the watermark.
I've abandoned both programs now and I don't expect to need that function again. I'll make SURE that my RC settings are at H.264 before I launch
