This is the first time I used ActiveTrack solo while doing semi-technical riding. It's taken a lot of practice to be able to launch, use the flight time efficiently, and recover at a new location.

Also the first time I interleaved multiple camera angles into one video and used 'speed ramp' transitions.

And I finally figured out the chin mount is my preferred action cam position. The chest is too low for extensive use as this video illustrates.

Thank you. First time I tried the multicam functionality in Premiere Pro.

It really was not useful because you have to mark synchronization points in each clip before putting them together. This is great if you are using time-synched pro gear, have sound cues, etc.

I ended up just slicing and dicing clips visually, resulting in a timeline that looks like this:



With practice I'm sure it will get faster.

Yes, great video. That's one of the things I now like about our new toys is that we can now get ourselves in the movie when out alone.

Thank you! Premiere Pro has an amazing learning curve but it is very powerful when you figure it out.

I tried to track riding on another rock slab but there was grit in the gimbal and with the wind the aircraft could not maintain track.

That night I was able to get the grit out and decided to start always using a pad.

See post here on that topic https://forum.dji.com/forum.php? ... amp;fromuid=1493724

So next day I went back and the gimbal worked well:



This was the first time I've zoomed into quadcopter footage and set curves for zoom speed in the timeline. If you expand the timeline there is a hidden world of control below the level of Keyframes. You can spend a lot of time down there ;)

One thing that continues to elude me is color matching the GitUp G3 action cam and the Air. I used the ALEXA_Default_LogC2Rec709 LUT (lookup table) on both and they look a lot better But different.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Great video.

The two camera are outputing a very different color video.

Next time you should try to equalize those colors! ;-)

you should try and look up videos about vector scopes and waveforms. they are great for color correction and matching different cameras. a LUT is usally only  used as a last step to give your footage a certan feel. they are not for matching your footage between cams

Thank you. I did not mean to imply that a LUT does any color matching. It can make the mismatch even more obvious, though.
