Beautiful scenery, cinematic video capture with great composition and exposure. POI around the tower was particularly good showing the mountains and rich blue sky in the background. Thoughtful editing and a very pleasant soundtrack plus a nice story of the day. The shot of the wind turbine looked awesome, nice stick control throughout and great use of POI both of the tower and yourself walking through the snow. Well done Andreas, keep up the good work.

Great video and great flying! I love the location of this video not to mention the windmill shot was epic! Just one question are you filming in 1080p or are you downsizing 4k to 1080p? If your computer can handle it I would always recommend shooting in 4k. Also you had some really good synchronization with the video and music in some scenes then others didn't I think if you work on the timing for some shots that would really take your work to the next level. I loved your video keep it up!

Hello, yes, I do record in 4k and scale it down to 1080p. My PC handles 4k verry good but i still do not know what is the "best" program to edit my clips. I do love Lightroom and Photoshop for edit my Pictures but I do not know wich is the best program to edit short movies....

I downloaded it off youtube and can see the artifacts, so I know it's a Mavic. But in the window here it looks almost flawless =] I noticed that on my phone too, my footage looks flawless on the small 1080p oled screen, but blow it up on a monitor and you can see where it artifacts.

Have to try encoding strait to 1080p. Maybe youtube doesn't do a great job re encoding to 1080p from 4k. It will be faster to upload too =]

Here's a test video did on artifacts and color grading on youtube /watch?v=FmwhyoFfEjE (it's really not meant for public, so nsfw!) but it shows what you get without nd filters.

That drone guy keeps going on about how he has no artifacts with the polar filters, but I think it's lies. I have the pgy nd4-32 and still get artifacts. The bitrate could use a boost to 80 mbps

Great video. If you already use the Adobe programs, then I recommend using Adobe Premiere. I though it was pretty easy to learn, and they have a TON of online tutorials. It's great for small or large scale projects.

Look around the trees when they contrast with background. You'll see it. Like a halo effect around them. And sometimes land in the distance, especially farmland where there's strait rows, it gets lossy. You have to know what to film with this thing imo. But I really like your video, it's beautiful.

Well to be honest, I have not used light room before, so I don't know the process to adjust the colors. But I think in premiere pro is extremely easy to do. They have a section called "creative filters" and they are a huge list of presets that you can select from to get the look that you want and it auto formats the clip colors according to the preset. Then you can go in and adjust the setting as well if you want, or just leave the filters as is. So it gives you the ability to just pick a filter (and there's like 100+) and/or adjust each individual setting if you'd like. You can also select a filter, change different settings, and then save as your own preset then use that preset on all clips in your timeline so they are all exactly the same. Here is a tutorial video that talks about it from Adobe's site.
