1. Gopro 8 Intro: Hi. Welcome to the Goal Pro eight course. My name is Greg Kong. I'm a Canadian trouble videographer being filming GoPro courses since GoPro Force. So we're very familiar with this camera. This course is designed for beginners or travel bloggers. Or maybe your professional videographer that wants a secondary camera for B roll or underwater footage. We're going to cover all of that. The GoPro eight is known for the hyper smooth 2.0 technology. We're going to give that a lot of coverage and show you how to get the most out of GoPro it so you can get great footage, whether it's super slow mo footage. Or maybe you need to get some blogging footage or maybe even need to see how it works in a second camera angle scenario were no for covering a full workflow from mastering the shots in the field to taking that footage onto the computer, the editing room and teaching you how to edit a Finnish video that we published over the YouTube. In addition, I'm also going to show you the workflow for how you can license your footage shot from the GoPro so maybe you can earn a passive income with the GoPro footage. This sounds good. Please check out some of the free previews and hope to see you in the course. 2. Gopro 8 connect gopro to mobile devices: we are going to cover how we can set up our GoPro connected to a mobile device. So to do that, we need Teoh access our preferences. We can swipe from the top down and we get our preferences window. So we top on our preferences. And before we go there, I'll just point out that you can turn on and turn off different options here. Voice commands. I'm not sure sure how clearly you can see them, but Ah, yeah, This one on the top left is for his commands. This is our grid line. You could enable the lock, and that's the orientation landscape. And you can lock that. Okay, so if you turn the goper around, it's going to stay in landscape mode. Okay, let's go to Preferences. And, uh, we want to go to connections, make sure the wireless is turned on, it's just tap it and then we want to go to connect device. And most likely, you're gonna do GoPro app. So just like GoPro app and it's going to say, installed a GoPro up on your mobile device, leave your camera on and follow the out construction. So now we're going to move over to our go pro app on the iPad. Okay, so we have our iPad here with our go pro app. I'm gonna tap on GoPro. Just open it up and we end up with the screen here. If you don't see the screen, you can tap on this icon of the camera and you have two choices. You can view media where it can control you. Go pro gave you select view media. You can see the video clips or photos that you've taking already. And if you're just connecting for the first time, you may get prompt. Saying, is it okay to turn off the WiFi? Is it okay to join the GoPro network? So just select okay to those. And as you can see here, we've got in some of the photos that we took earlier. And it's the same for previous devices. If you want to download, you can press down and you can play back if you want. Okay, so the connect you go pro. We want to select control your go pro, and that's it. We are connected. So now that you are connected on, just gonna briefly go through some of the different settings on the GoPro app 3. Gopro design B: just taking a quick look at the design of the GoPro how to operate it. So here's the front here, and this is the main camera. We've got a black and white display. It shows us things like the battery life memory car capacity and, uh, the frame rate and resolution that we have and maybe a bit dark there. We got the shutter button at the top. This is what we need to press the record and then on the side here, we've got the latch on the bottom, right. I'll open it up a bit later and then the back screen, which we have another video lesson where we just go through some of the practical functions and then the side. This is the power right? Right over there at the bottom. This is where you might attach amount. It's built right in. Now you don't have an extra external cage to put the GoPro in, which is nice. It's supposedly waterproof just out of the box without any casing, but you can still buy casing for it. I'll just put the waterproof depth below You can see on screen. Now we're gonna go ahead and open this up just to show you how do you access the memory card on the battery? Okay, so over here, we've got the tab for the batteries. So we pull it out there, so I find it a lot easier to get the memory card out, which is on the right side if you take the battery out. So this is one thing I think they could have improved on the design. You need to press it in with your fingernail. And some of you may have fatter fingers. Then I have so you may need some tweezers or Neil Tweezer to get that out. But I have to pinch it over there to get that memory card out and then to insert it, See the GoPro cameras facing up. I've got my memory card with the colors facing down. I insert it like like this personal with my finger now, so it's pretty tricky to get it in. I think we have ah, USB C port here. They're used for charging, and I believe this is where you attach additional accessories. The like, the shock on microphone and I just think that can get a little bit bulky. I'm not sure how the add on accessories argon attach to USB C if the watch has to be open. But at the time those accessories are not available to me. So I would recommend recording the audio separately and have covered a lesson on that. So to put the battery in this, attach it. You need to have this open when you're charging and then to close the lodge. We just press it in and then press in that corner there. So that's your basic operational GoPro eight and ah yeah, First time you get it, you need to charge it up, maybe for about an hour, maybe even less, and then you're good to go. 4. Gopro 8 Touch Screen: when in this video we're gonna cover how to operate the GoPro from the back screen, with the back screen being in color and touch friendly and bigger than in the past. You can do most of what you need to do in the field from the back screen without relying on the app like in the past. So that's a nice change with Go pro eight. And here we go. So we'll just start off with a GoPro that's turned off. So that's the button on the side here. So I just hold it down and it's powered off. Okay, so you can either just press record on the top. It'll turn it on. I just prefer to turn on from side, and there we go. So from here we can tell we're in photo modes, and we've got thes touchable buttons on the left and the right. This is in the the photo view, which I don't spend too much time, but from here, if you top that I calling you can change the angle from wide and then you can even bring it down. Just top lightly. Two. Linear to narrow, which is a little bit less wide. It's more zoomed in. As you can see on that chair there, Over here, there's some options for a time delay. Okay, so you can set three second timer Tech and 12th timer. All right, so let's just say we set it on 10 seconds and I wanted to take a photo, A press, the shutter button, and we get a countdown or 3 to 1. OK, so that's our photo over there. And let's just say we wanted to look at our media. We can pull downed down the up, swipe up to see what we've done and then swipe down again to get back to the main screen. Okay, so if we want a cycle between the promotes weaken, just swipe right from left to right. Okay, so this allows us to switch from time lapse mo to video mode and photo mode. It's a little bit confusing because you can't just tap on it. You have to slide it and then top it. Okay, Just be aware of that. Otherwise, sometimes it doesn't change. Okay, we're now in video mode. So in the video mode where I've spent more time, you can see we have icons here. This is to put on two times slow motion. Top it again. Top it again and it should turn off three top over here. We could know. Change our shutter speed. I just usually leave that on auto. Okay, now, if we top this area on the bottom, this is where we can access the video presets. So GoPro has already set up a preset for four K video. There's one for 10. 80 p. And there's one for 2.7 K It's also a slum. Super slow motion 10. 80 p for case cinematic. So you can actually just ease by clicking on the pencil. All right, I hope you can see that there. So in each of these presets, you have the ability to change the resolution. You can change the frame rates from 10. 80 p. 60 friends for 2nd 2120 frames all the way up to 10. 40 frames. Okay. And it's just telling you that to play it play back. You need, uh, h e v c supported device. All right, let's get out of the screen. All right. Other options weaken just or hyper smooth, and we can also jump. Just the the lens focal length weaken Go super wide and it tells you give gives you a short description or we can go down too wide, which is a wide field of view to narrow. Okay, so 10 80 p 120 frames is something that's good for slow motion. Most of my shots I'm filming for stock footage, so I'm doing four K 30 frames per second, and we can just click the pencil to access the adjustments. Okay, so we got a hyper smooth on. We have ah, wide lens and four K 30 frames per second. If we top four k 30 you can see that we can go all the way 2 to 40 but then it lowers our resolution. Okay, so if we go to four k weaken do 60 frames, but we cannot do four k 240 friends. Anyhow, I don't want to get to get hung up on these video settings at the moment, but there are presets here, and you can also create your own presets. So be aware of that. Okay? Also, just just some, uh, basic controls. We got the memory car capacity there, So if I press record, you can see it recording two seconds. Three seconds, and then our memory car capacity in the top left is also going down. So that's telling us how much time we have to record on this memory card batteries at 88%. And stop it. Simply just press the shutter. Okay. Now, if you want to just some of the preferences. These are probably one of the first steps he would take. You gotta swipe down, and from here, you can turn on or off the voice commands. Okay. Camera beeping if you want. Quick capture, or if you want to lock the screen, you can do that there. I don't like to lock it. If you want grid lines, click preferences were going to get a whole new menu. And what I would do in here is if I'm setting up a connection, the wireless connection. You can do that over here. Wireless connection on you can connect a device, get some camera info. Que es WiFi is on name of the camera, and you can change the WiFi frequency, things like that. Okay, so I'm just gonna back out by clicking that arrow. We've got the voice control. If we go over here to General, we can do a lot of different things time and dates, all that stuff. But what I actually use this area for is to format the memory card. I'm not gonna do it now, but this is where you find the command and that this is like something that I would actually doing this menu. Okay, so, yeah, those are the basic controls from the screen for the go pro, and, ah, it's good to be aware of them because sometimes when you're in the field, you don't have time to fiddle the app. You just wanna start recording very quickly. So that's our quick start intro to the touch screen on the GoPro eight. 5. Gopro 8 timelapse: in this video, we're gonna cover setting up a time lapse with our go pro eight to change our modes, weaken, swipe to the right and make sure that we have time lapse selected and then tap on it. Now we look at the icons on the screen. We have a choice off zooming in up to two times. We can even change our focal length from wide all the way to Sorry about that linear which is 19 to 39. A little bit more. Zoom then and then we have a choice off selecting are presets just like we did for a video . So we have some slightly different settings here is not showing the frame rate so far Time lapse here we've got Let's take a look at one of them So the time last presets if we hit the pencil is a 10 80 p white folk allowing we have an interval of 800.5 seconds and ah zoomed in 1.2 times and we can keep scrolling to see the different settings. Okay, If we go to the custom one, we could see our speed. Let's go pro automatically adjusted for us. So we can go up to 30 x and have it stable. Or it can just let go pro automatically set it up for time work, video. And that's the setting that I've been using quite a bit of being using four K auto linear. And, um, yeah, you can just hit record. And while you're actually recording, you have a choice off enabling riel time recording, which means that it's not gonna be sped up or anything like that. If you do, uncheck this time warp is now on and it's gonna be sped up. So the nice thing about this is you can change the speed on the video playback while the GoPro's actually recording. I'm just gonna turn this off. And ah, one more thing is, if you're recording in hyper lapse mode or or time warp, you can see the elapsed amount of seconds you're actually going to get because it's slower when you're using time warp because it's speeding up the video in the GoPro. So you're not actually getting the actual amount of seconds in real time, if that makes sense, all right, so one more preset I just want to show you is the night lapse mode, which is set up for night lapses for low light situations. So let's just take a quick look at what set up differently here. We've got set up for night lapse photo is gonna capture continuous Siri's off photos in dark and low light environments. Okay, we also have the choice to capture time lapse video at night in dark settings, all right, and then it's probably optimized for low lights. Interestingly, the ice only goes up to 800 which I thought would be a bit higher for a little light situation. All right, so that's where our night lap setting is. And as faras framing your time lapse is pretty much you. Can you select the correct setting and you can set it and forget it Now, if you wanted to do like a traditional time lapse, maybe you could use the time lapse preset, and what I would change is maybe the interval this 0.5 seconds is quite often if it's a lot of action, as GoPro's giving a guy here two seconds is what I would typically do. But if his fast action I would do it at 20.5, if it's slower maybe a sunset, maybe even three seconds. All right, so time lapse presets is what I would do for traditional time lapse. But I've been doing a lot of the customs setting here, which is four k auto. It's set up for time warp, and I can walk around while I'm doing that. And um, yeah, I like that type of time lapse. It's a new style. I just find it hard to stay in one position for 20 minutes, recording in time lapse, so that covers our time lapse section. So let's see what you can do. Get your go pro out, set up your time lapse and, ah, for best results is good to have a lot of action. Maybe you set yourself a coffee shop where there's a lot of people walking around. Or maybe it's by the water where you can see a sunset, which is pretty beautiful as well, or transition from sunset to evening. 6. Gopro 8 App: This is our go pro app, and we are looking at what the GoPro's looking at. So I'm just gonna turn it over here so we can see are set up. Okay, So GoPro app gives us our memory car capacity, our battery levels, and then we can see the wrench in the bottom right hand corner over here and the power button on left side. We've got options to change from time lapse video and photo mover Carly and photo mode. As we can see the bottom, we can access the same presets that we could using the GoPro. And I'm gonna switch over the video by topping that. And I can also do that for a time lapse, and we can go over to photo. And I can't even take a photo arrived from the shutter button here. Okay? Or we can even go alive, which we won't do right now. Okay, lets just move this over so we get a better view. So put her GoPro over here. Okay, that's a bit better. Okay, So the reason why I would go in the APP is to set up some of the finer settings on the go pro But you could just take a photo or video for using the shutter button here. Or it can issue a voice command GoPro photo moat GoPro, take a photo. Okay, We can also access the media from the top left. There's a photo we just took greats. I like that. Let's take a another one. GoPro, take a photo. GoPro, take a photo. Okay, that's an example of the voice control. So we're gonna click the wrench here just to go into the app. And I'll just cover some of the settings that you may need to set up because a lot of them are just optional voice control. You want to make sure is on, and, uh, the language is set up correctly. You could do things like turn off BB's led lights screensaver, Ellie, LCD brightness, GPS. Now you might want to change the video compression. Mine's currently set up on most compatible, but you may want to get one. That's high efficiency. You're gonna set date in time and hear from the delete man. You can still eat the last fall or all the falls from the SD card. You can also do that from the GoPro you can easily see the version number, locate your camera on her off, and then you could manage your connections here. It's very easy to see UST carp capacity as well as your battery level's so you can see video time remaining photos remaining. If you just take a look over there on, that will change based on your resolutions. So that's our basic tour off the GoPro app with the new back screen on the scope pro. You don't really need to use it as often as you did in the past, but is good for a first time set up. 7. Gopro 8 pros and cons: So now that I've finished filming this course I've used the GoPro ate a lot. What do I actually think about it? The price points is currently at about 550 Canadian up with the price and us, So it is getting quite expensive. Teoh own this camera. But what are you getting for the GoPro eight. You're getting the hyper smooth 2.0, which means that you can basically walk around with this thing and shoot really stable video. But the limitation with GoPro is it always has sort of this y focal length. But now you have the ability to digitally zoom in a little bit, but it still doesn't have that same depth of field. So it does sort of have that action camera feel. But it does have a place, particularly if you're doing adventurous stuff. You're going on a water. I mean, GoPro is the gold standard for this type of video at the price points. I mean, the alternative would be to get underwater casings for your bigger cameras. But then there's risk there, So it is good to have a go pro in your bag. Do you need a GoPro eight in your bag. Well, for me personally, I'm not sure that I do. But these moving time lapses, if they do manage to reach a niche, I mean, it's gonna be worth to do that. It's too early to tell. Whether these clips are going to sell Adobe stock is just the proof. My batch of stock footage clips. This is a very new category off video, so I'm gonna take a wait and see approach. You can always rents the GoPro. If you're not sure, maybe if in your in some countries, air able to try it out and you can return it so those are some options if you want to give it a try. There's also the GoPro seven, which has come down in price. It also has hyper smooth, and that could be a good option. If you want to add an auction camera, Teoh your bag, but it's really convenient to film. I mean, it's something you can always carry with you. It's not too intimidating, and the perspective from these time lapses are really good. So there's pros and cons of the GoPro aids, meaning that it's pretty durable right out of the box you can take it under water. It can shoot. These amazing videos is very stable, the cons being that it's expensive for what it is. And, ah, the focal length has that. Why, GoPro Look, So you have to weigh what your situation is. But as a videographer, I look at return on investments as an entrepreneur. So I want to look at, you know, if I invest in this camera, am I gonna get my return investment in the long run? So for Panasonic, change five. That's a camera and use reclined videos. If I were to say I had a go pro eight camera clients would probably not take me seriously. So that's just the truth. So it does have a niche. I mean, if your travel longer YouTuber definitely have GoPro eight in my bag because that stabilization is next level. Hopefully, that helps you make your decision, and that's what I think about the GoPro. It let me know what you think about GoPro hate in the comments below 8. Gopro 8 tips for photos: Okay, We're gonna cover the loss mode here, which is the photo mode. So we want to make sure that we're in photo mode by swiping right and selecting photo. So let's look at the menu here for photo mode. We've got an icon here to set the timer weaken, set it up to 10 seconds before takes a photo or three seconds. We also have the option to change the focal out, just like we did for video from wide over to narrow 27 millimeters and, ah, the magnifying glasses grayed out. So, like I said, if you have a particular set up and it's not possible, it will be great out. So I changed the focal length back toe wide, and now we can digitally zoom in, which I don't recommend, by the way, because digitally zooming often degrades the quality. Get some pics. Elation. So let's cover the presets. We have night mode here, which is best for taking NYTPhotos. I'll just take one here just for an example. Or if you're doing some action like really fast pace, AK action or sports, you could choose burst mode, which is gonna take a rapid amount of photos in a short period of time. Traditional photo. You would just select photo over here, and then you can change the focal length and set the timer. So would you use this function? Maybe I would probably see it being used for underwater situations, where your phone may not be able to go down as faras the GoPro. But nowadays the smartphones are taking really good photos, and it's more convenient. So, honestly, I probably wouldn't use the photo mood that often. But it's good that the GoPro can take photos and you have different options within the photo mode. So that is our photo mode for GoPro. You can also check out a previous lesson with another GoPro model on how to do light painting. And I mean all the near GoPro versions air. Gonna have the same feature so you can check that out if you're interested in that 9. Gopro 8 Video Settings: Hey there, in this video, we're gonna go through some of the video settings for the go pro, so we can learn a bit more about the different setups that we have. So first of all, you want to make sure your GoPro's on, and then you want to swipe right just to make sure your video mode. So we're currently in time lapse mode, so make sure that you swipe right and then tap. Okay, so we have our settings at the bottom, which says custom four. K 60. And then it gives us the type of focal life we have, which is wide so we can tap there and we can scroll through all these presets. So, for example, four K 60. This would be kind of a good, all purpose four K resolution. You can do business alot emotion, but you can also record regular video with it. 10 80 p. 1 20 Narrow is a lower resolution, but it's got a faster frame rate so good for sports, and then they even have one for activity, which is 2.7 k 60 slo mo 10. 80 p at 1 20 So also good for sports and then you have something that cinematic four K resolution 30 frames per second. So out of the box, these presets are pretty good and you can manage them. But topping that icon there and you can do things like the Leedom. You can rearrange them just by dragging. And we can also modify existing presets. And after you modify them, it will say custom, We're gonna go ahead and create our own preset by screwing all the way to the bottom, hitting the plus. And, ah, you can immediately see that we've got different. Mo's have got slo mo record video and up to eight x super slow motion. We can loop or can just do regular video moat you can always in your video editor. You can do slow motion with higher frame rates, like 60 frames or higher in your video editor. But GoPro is going to help you do that if you select that slow motion mood. All right, so let's go leave a video resolution and FPs so we can select four K. I'm just getting a h E v c. Notice just saying for playback your computer foma support H E V C. That's the new standard believe h 265 for the newer compression over. So I've got four K set up. There's also other choices and, um, notice there I'm just gonna select Don't show again. Notice that as I selected four K and I try to select 120 frames, that it went down to 2.7 k So that's the limitation four k. We can only go up to 60 frames. If we went to 10. 80 p, we could select the higher framing like to 4240 friends, which is really ah, really high frame rate. Okay, so we have 10 80 p 120 frames and then we can change our focal length from very wide or even wider Super view 60 millimeters. It gives you a guide here. Uh, if you if you just let it. If you change it to a different setting and then you just leave it alone, it will tell you why I feel of you without fish eye effect. So that's good, because the fisheye effect is not really desirable for most people. And then we've got a narrow point of view, which is up to 27 millimeters without fish eye effect. So this will be a good setting for going a bit closer, not as wide. All right, so low lights that's not available. So if something's not available, because maybe it's, Ah, particular focal length, like the lens setting or frame rate, then and won't will be great out. All right, so if we keep on scrolling down, there's more options here. So we have Pro Tune, which is GoPro's color system. You could just leave it as it is for bid rate. You may want to increase the quality, but you're going to get higher file sizes. Shutters be you can change, but I would just leave this on auto. Normally, rule of thumb is double the frame rates, so I just put that back on auto. Okay, I so minimum. So go pro. The good thing about GoPro's that it makes things easy. It makes a lot of the decisions for you if you're shooting with a bigger camera, Normally you have to manually set up settings like the ice, so the shutter speed. So this is a good range. Isil minimum 100 toe YSL max 1600. So GoPro's fitness elects an isil setting based on your range. Their sharpness is a high. I could just leave that raw audio. Okay, so we can change it to low, which is going to create a separate audio track. And we could even go all the way up to raw audio which includes when and stereo with audio gain and medium, which will give us a blend of both. I recommend having a separate audio source, but we can also even change the wind setting. So this will filter out when and water noise, which is nice. And then we have some shortcuts. Their toe access on screen for hypersea movie of upper writes upper left. We got a slo mo. All right, so I'm just gonna hit the check box there. I could name my presets and I'm just going to call it epic. All right, So we are. We have our epic setting here and on screen. We've got some additional options so I can select hyper smooth boost. Remember that short cut area? That's where we set up these icons and I can enable or disable slow motion. So let's turn that on. It's a little tricky sometimes and, um, what I want to do is make it a higher frame rates. Actually, 100 20 is fine. Okay? Yeah. Let's let's give us a try. And now that we've set it up, so just hit record. Okay, so I'm recording there. Now, if you want a preview, it I could swipe up and I can press play. And from the playback weaken, turn on slow motion. So let's just rewind that back. So the playback controls you tap on there, and we can select where we wanna play back from and select play. So there we go. We've got our slow motion playback. Okay. Second thing I will cover is Thebes. I mop settings. So we'll do that in a separate video. 10. Gopro 8 shots to masterb: We got a master, a lot of different shots with a GoPro eight. There's the handheld video shooting, which is now possible because of the hyper smooth two point. Oh, there's also new shots, like the moving time lapse or the high prolapse that just gives a really cool perspective. And, I think is ah, unique shot because of the stabilisation. Because of the portability off the GoPro eight and the traditional types of shots that you can get with the GoPro aid is taking it on the water. So either get great video or great photo. You want to make use off the GoPro's capabilities to do different resolutions and slow motion using higher frame rates. That's where GoPro eight also can excel. The previous models do have that ability, but they keep upping the frame rate with every model. So take advantage of that do 10 80 p, 100 20 frames per second for sports. And, of course, you can also use different amounts to mount it on your helmet to get shots from your motorbike or your bicycle. Or maybe you're doing some type of sports. It's good to get amounts for these things, just so you can free your hands up to focus on your activity. It's also safer if you do that. But for now we're gonna go out in the field. We're going to cover how to do some hand held shooting with the GoPro eight and also how to pull off the moving time lapse. So let's go. Hi. And we're gonna cover how to master the different shots with a GoPro. So honestly, with the eight, it's pretty easy. Just gonna make sure whatever shot it is a photo or video that you've got it framed. And then depending on what type of shot that you want, whether it's wide or a bit mawr cropped in that you've framed it correctly. So I'm just going to do a nice wide shot over here. I've got it in photo modes and just double check that your preset is set up correctly. So I'm just gonna do photo narrow 12th countdown. Now, to get good, call the video. You want to make sure that you're filming in the direction off the light and ah, so I'm actually okay. So for video and photos for GoPro's, they do really well in natural light So I got the sun shining directly over here. So if I'm filming in this direction, it's going to be pretty good. So I've got it set up on video mode right now, and Ah, the preset is four K. 60 frames per second. We've got a wide shot. Hyper smooth. Four K 60 frames. Low lights is off right now. I'll just leave it on in case I forget. It doesn't hurt your your footage. And, uh, that's it. So I'm gonna hit on the shutter, I'm gonna hit record. And this is how I hold it to do a pan. You're basically just holding the GoPro like that. It's pretty simple. You can try all different types of shots because of the stabilisation before with previous GoPro's, maybe seven would be good with the hyper smooth, but six And before you would need to hold it really stable and maybe even have it on a gimbal or having on amount. But now you can just do handheld shots. So I'm gonna film and right against a light, you're going to see that you know, it's going to cast shadow on objects that are against the sun like that dog, but if we turn it around, the picture is a whole lot better. OK, so that's our video shot. Just make sure that you've framed it well, you're in the direction of the lighting and just handheld shots. Of course, you don't want to shake it up and down, but just normally walking, it's still pretty smooth. I'm gonna do a walk here and we'll just show you how good it really is. Okay, so the Knicks Knicks shot we're gonna do is the time lapse. So the time lapse I've got the same settings, four K wide lines, speed, Abadan, auto. And on this screen, it's all good to go. So I'm recording now. Now, I'm not sure if you can see that there. But while you're recording the time lapse, you have one button and it's called real time. So that's just going to slow the time lapse down just a real time. But I can't see too many use cases for this unless you're actually doing a time lapse, and you just want to get some real time footage at the time. But I'm gonna press it again to take it off, and I'm gonna take a walk over there and we're gonna see what this time lapse walking time lacks. Looks like. Okay, starting now. Okay. Walking over here, it's one GoPro. You can see a second counts, and that's telling you how many seconds this video clip is gonna be when it's turned into a hybrid ups. So I only now I just have one second dogs chasing me. I'm walking back now. I'm not even a two seconds it We might get up to three seconds by the time I get to the camera. You can tap the screen if it turns off automatically just to check your framing on the shot . But I just reached three seconds, so I'm going to stop that. And that's basically how you do a moving time lapse or, ah, high prolapse. And that's probably my favorite shot that the GoPro eight can do so many possibilities with this type of type of shot. You can do it for stock footage. I Jack, she just got some improved by adobe stock. So that's a good sign for validation if the curator czar accepting these hyper lapses. So I've actually filmed them from bicycles as well, as well as walking. Just holding it like this. Make sure your fingers not in the way of the lens and just basically keep it steady. If your arm gets tired, you can switch. Just keep it. Try to keep the go from the same place. The hybrid smooth will do the necessary adjustments to make sure that it's a pretty smooth video. 11. Gopro 8 What is Stock Footage 2020: So we're almost at 2020 and I just wanted to give you my update off what stock footage is and some of the benefits over to you. So I discovered stock footage in 2014 was a really great way to monetize on footage that you were shooting, whether it's trouble footage or footage food. It was a really interesting way and to earn in U. S. Dollars on platforms like Pawn five and shatter stock. So for those of you who don't know what stock footage is, it's a business model to license your footage to media companies or people that need establishing shots for movies. Just say, as an example, the drone shot in the intro. Or maybe there is a change in seen and they need to cut to some B roll. So that's what we're essentially doing. We're fulfilling a need for those types of customers. Those types of videos 2020 coming. I see that's getting a lot more competitive. Maybe it's the courses that I produce that are introducing more people to this industry. To the workflow is because that was the hardest part in the beginning. But now you've got companies like black box, which has a platform that allows you to not only put your footage on there, but you can share the revenue with other people that are helping your keyword that are actually models that you made a film. Then you want to revenue splits and, um, yeah, they do the job off pushing out the footage to Pawn five shutter stock and Adobe on. That's a nice that's a nice ah, a new feature to the industry, a nice new player, but that also has its pros and cons. I mean, you've got another layer off people to review and reject your footage. You have to split your revenue. So what I think every videographer should do is to build up their library fine and niche that works for them. Look at the sales data. If you don't have a lot of sales data, then I do have reports. Buildup your collection to at least 1000 and be consistent. Keep shooting footage. Neuer work flows, but it's not something where you just shoot. You uploaded and then you forget about it. You have to be consistent, and you could be more strategic once you get that sales data and then focus on your niche and then just keep on producing. But with passive income, it's unpredictable. So I always recommend to not just rely on one revenue source. You can do things like commission footage taken do free lines, videos because you have the camera and the skills already, and freelancing for people is training time for money. So it's more consistent and you can take some of the projects that you're involved in. And maybe you condone table with the customer. Can I share some of the footage for my use for stock footage and then give them better price? So there's some ideas for you, or you can start a YouTube channel and promote your footage there. I've got a Facebook group called the Stock Footage. Wholesale Market. You're welcome to join and start a conversation there about stock footage. Industry. It's always changing, but video content is becoming more popular. Camera technology keeps improving. We've got drones. We've got high resolutions got in your cameras like go pros. So as technology evolves, I think there's just gonna be more room for content. So that's in a nutshell. What stock footage is. It's a great business model. It does give you some freedom to create what you want to sell what you want, but you do have to listen to the market. Ultimately, it's you know, people that are paying for the videos is who you want to surf. So, essentially, how the business smaller works is you film video clips from 10 seconds to under 60 seconds , depending on the agency. You put them online on usually larger agencies like shutter stock and Pawn Five, and then they find the customers. This is a great starting point if you're new to stock footage and you want someone to find the customers. The learning points for doing softens this way is that you have to learn what the agencies want. You have to learn their work flows, and I have stocks, which courses that will teach you those work clothes. Once you learn the work flows, I encourage you to build up your portfolio. Maybe 1000 video clips in a particular niche. Don't just do random clips. Try to film something that your passion about that is. Sellable is commercial. You can look up the spec sheets on the agency's they do provide some information intelligence sales data off what is trending. Things like business, video footage, shoots and meeting rooms and corporate settings or in the health care sector tend to do well. For me, it's been nightlife and drone shots, but I do have sales data that I share based on actual sales. So I have an idea of what trends, and I try to skill that, rather than shooting a lot of random footage, also use the technology to your advantage. Like cameras like to go pro eight allows you to do different shots like moving time lapses uses technology to create something new because, you know, that's that means that someone hasn't done those shots. When drones first came out in 2015 I was one of the 1st 2 films aerial stock footage before there was a lot of regulation. So the business model of the agency's is changing a little bit with Block box. Black Box allows you to revenue share with other people that might help you with key wording. It allows you to share revenue with models that you might shoot so ah does save you some time and they push out your footage automatically. Teoh the top three agencies at this time. Shorter stop on five and Adobe stock storey blocks looks like it's out of the game right now, and the other agencies are not really worth spending too much time on. But there are pros and cons with using something like Black box. You got another layer got another platform to learn. So it does serving you. You've got blocked box there, and then you can also license your own footage, which is something a bit more events and something that I can teach in some of my business related courses. If you're interested in licensing your own footage, the commission footage is another way to do it, where you get hired to film the footage, and you can get paid for that just for shooting exclusive footage just for that customer. So stock footage is not just about putting your clips up on shutter stock and pawn five. There's other ways to approach it. You have to evolve as the industry matures to make sure that you stay relevant 12. Gopro 8 livestream: we're gonna try. Set up the live. This is actually my first time. So with your mobile device connected to WiFi here GoPro app installed and connected to your GoPro, we're gonna click live, set up live. Okay, Accept the terms from GoPro says camera disconnected. So we got a prompt. Allow YouTube live. Allow GoPro once. Use google dot com a sign in. Continue Now it's trying to sign into Google. Okay, let's use my Let's just use this account just for testing. All right? Next. Okay, it's gonna ask permission. Go. Prote to manager. YouTube accounts liked. Allow live streaming. Not enabled. Okay, so what I'm gonna do is try a gang with my other YouTube accounts. All right, guys, let's try set up the live stream here, so we have some options. So before we got here, basically, you need to have a youtube account. It needs to be Neil for live streaming, and you basically just log on. Make sure your ipad as a connection to WiFi, it's connected to the GoPro. So not awesome options. Select a WiFi network. Okay. I'm using the library studio network share too. I'm gonna put public describe my stream studio. Okay, I'll just leave the resolution of 7 20 But we have an option for WiFi. Recommend that. Let's go up to WiFi, save a copy we can enable and is logged into my YouTube account. All right, so let's click, set up live stream and see if we can get this working. We're about to go live. This is the GoPro app. I I'm gonna broadcast to YouTube, and we just selected the WiFi network. I've selected the name. I'm going to select 10. 80 p as the resolution save a copy to my SD card is enabled, and I'm logged on or any time on YouTube account. Last thing I need to do is select set up live stream. It's a little bit finicky. It says cannot start live stream, but then it starts doing something anyways, so let's just try again. Oh, I can't start it because I have to stop the cameras, so I'm gonna stop it, and then next video is gonna be on the Life Street. All right? I think we're alive on YouTube. So this is my morning routine and got my boil my water, make my own coffee and check my computer. Check my email. If I need to respond anything and I look out beside the window, I think they're going to go for a walk with this. And then maybe it's fixing a bit of breakfasts, you know, breakfast that's gonna feel your body with energy so you can be productive. So today I've got some slice oranges. I've got some orange juice and this coffee, and I've already got lunch prepared. So what are some tips for live streaming? Well, first of all, just know that it's still in your technology, so it can be a bit finicky. You need to connect your accounts either Facebook or you to to allow the GoPro to broadcast to those accounts. And then I recommend having a fast WiFi connection. I've got 100 megabits here, installed a GoPro lap and then just go through the screens that I'll show you. And then when you actually live streaming, do not cover the mike, which is right beneath the camera. Otherwise, you're gonna get this happening. We Can you hear me? No, As far as audio. I tried to connect my road live, but then, while I'm using the GoPro up, I cannot use us, so that's kind of a kind of a con. But the micron to GoPro's pretty good. So this is a live stream. It's, I think, a pretty cool feature. I tried doing it to Facebook yesterday, and it basically takes priority over everything when you go alive and the quality is pretty good, according to some my friends. So Facebook Livestream. Welcome to my home office in Vancouver and give it a try. GoPro eight Black is the camera amusing and check out the GoPro a course live. 13. Gopro 8 Summary: Congratulations. You've finished the GoPro a course and hope you learned toe lots. Hope you've used the practice files to practice editing. Hope you've learned some to take some new great shots. How to use the full potential of this camera. For me, the life streaming is a promising category. If you can live stream with the GoPro, it's ah means you could do some amazing stuff while all in the field you could broadcast to YouTube channel while you are about to go surfing. You know, the possibilities air there. Now go pro Eights. I mean, there's been a lot of models here, and I've had a chance to use all the GoPro starting with go pro to, in fact, and it all started with I needed a camera to take with me scuba diving. And I mean, that is one of the mean purposes for a GoPro to take it on the water to take it. Action, sports. If you're doing adventure sports and you have the correct mounts, I've seen people get a lot of use out of it. If I was running a motor bike a lot, doing a lot of bike riding, I would get the mount for the Go pro and I would use it and I would get a GoPro age or GoPro seven. But because I don't do that, I look at my return investment. I do mean the client videos. Clients are looking for cameras like the Sony Me airless cameras, the A seven, Siri's, the Panasonic judge five. Siri's Air Cannon S Lars or Canon C 100 to 300. Siri's type of cameras four videos that they're willing to pay for Soto have a GoPro eight in my bag. I would have to justify it, and for me that would be a second camera would be a camera that would be ableto license video footage with it. So for me personally, I've got some hyper lapses that I've got on Adobe Stock approved. So let's just see if they sell. And I think this could be a really agree camera for stock footage and, of course, all those great shots for adventure, and it's very discreet. And if I were travel longer, I definitely would use this. So also look at the lessons for the other GoPro models, like using the mouse to get night lapses for adventure shots because this camera is very versatile. So I wish you luck if you're planning a license or footage or use this GoPro for adventure and ah, please check out my YouTube channel. Sheikh Ayash. It's got a lot of videos covering travel, lifestyle, business, a lot of different cameras, lot of information on different destinations because the GoPro eight would be great to travel with. It's very small and you can always carry with you get amazing stuff. You can also check out my online video school Phantom three Dog Teach World All Calm and my website Sheikh Triage productions dot com. Thanks a lot for taking the course, and I hope you enjoyed it by. 14. Gopro 8 Project Footage: I want to talk about some of the project footage I'm gonna make available. Teoh. I've shot a lot of different footage with different cameras like GoPro eights, GoPro six, some drone footage and some footage from the camera musing right now Panasonic GH five, which is a professional, fearless camera. Now in the real world, I recommend that you mix up different footage just to give a variety. So it's not just drone footage, it's not just go pro footage, not just one type of camera footage. So you put that diversity and you can tell an interesting video story or have a nice flow. It could be something really good. So I'm gonna give you links to different practice files that you can edit on the video editing software of your choice. GoPro has video editing software. I'm also going to cover how to edit a video in Adobe Premiere or whether you're using a Mac . Maybe you can use I movie. Some of the principles are always gonna be the same. The footage you're gonna get is going to be in different resolutions going being different types. So, for example, if you do an HD project, you can still use four K footage with different frame rates. But just keep in mind that if you're using footage with different resolutions high resolution like four K in a lower resolution project, you have the ability to zoom in or zoom out because you have more real estate. So keep that in mind. You can also change the speed. You can slow it down to 50% or speeded up if you've shot it with a higher frame rate. So in your video editor there is usually an area where you can look at the media and you can look at the resolutions and frame rates. It's particularly important you do it for GoPro video. That is because you have so many different options when shooting with this camera. So let's go over to the next lesson where we're gonna cover how to add it. This GoPro footage anyways, how I would do it and eventually end up with the finish video that we can publish over to YouTube 15. Gopro 8 Project Vancouver: make that like that. 16. Behind the Scenes Project Vancouver: everyone, What's up? This is Greg here. In this video, we're going to cover the video edit for GoPro eight footage. It's gonna be a variety of footage. Actually, it's going to be footage shot from drones from a drone and maybe even some footage from my big camera. But it's mostly gonna be from the GoPro eight. And if you haven't already take a look at the lessons from the Maldives at it because that's going to cover some of the fundamentals, like importing and working in the timeline telling a story, I'm gonna be focusing more on the overview of this video edit. So, yeah, I go back into the course and take a look at the Maldives at its for the fundamentals. If you're wondering why I'm going pretty quickly. Okay, so this is in Adobe Premiere 2019 and ah, you convenio edit this in. You know, final cut pro Waxes is good. You may even be able to use I movie or GoPro's video editor, but I choose Adobe Premiere because it's ah pretty efficient. It handles footage very fast, so I've imported my footage already and I'm going to create an HD project and Ah, you know, it took me a little bit of time to figure out what type of video do I want. And I decided I was going to do something that's sort of promoting the course, just using the footage from the GoPro. There's gonna be a lot of hyper lapses or time warps and Ah, yeah. So this is an HD project, but it features a lot of four K footage and I'm just going to expand this window here just to show you what type of file types were dealing with here. So we've got if we look over to this area in the video info you can see we've got full HD clips that are 120 frames per second in this column here. Not that many, but a few. And if I were to create a four k video project, then there wouldn't be those HD close wouldn't full up the frame so they will be blocked borders. So just because of these HD clips which are at a high frame rate, I'm using slow motion which will see in the project. But all these other four K clips these air ultra HD four k I have to reframe them to make sure that they're zoomed out the bits. Otherwise, because by default they are cropped in, so they look a little bit strange at the beginning. So these four K clips, I believe they were actually in the GoPro shot at 60 frames. But in my video editor says 29.97 and does that with my GH five as well. Okay, so I'm gonna go back to the timeline view, and we'll kind of go through some of the clips in the timeline. So the first thing at two decide Waas what type of music I was going to use and actually made a squash video with go pro footage with this song called Fame. And it's a pretty upbeat song. So I decided to use it. I get my music from I believe It's CC, Mickster and Icons. Eight Music these days, these air free for commercial use. And, uh So I laid down that track and here we go. Let me just bring your attention to the timeline. It's sort of ah, annoying how these there's just never enough riel state space for the timeline and the viewer. That's why I used to screens. But just for this recording, for your benefit, we're doing it on one screen. So this is not normally how video and it I normally used to screens. And I recommend that. Okay, so we started off with the drone clip off Vancouver and I got my title there. And then I just cut to some B roll of the GoPro. What I could do justice. Smoothing things out you'll see throughout the project is that I used transitions. So for Adobe Premiere, you can access transitions using the shortcut shift seven and yeah, you see, you've got a whole range of transitions here that you can apply between clips. So I won't get too much into the technical details in Premiere because I want this to be applicable to anyone. Whatever video editor used, but transitions air good. If you're changing scenery, if you're going from one scene to another, so we go over to the next clip. And ah, this is a sport squash clip here and you'll see that it's in slow Mo. And because I slowed it down by 30%. This is one of the HD clips. If we look at the properties, if I can find it. So we're here. So this is HD 10 20. Sorry, HD 120 frames. So I slowed it down by 30%. So over here. And that's just nice to show off the slow motion ability of these clips. And that's why I shot it like that. All right, this clip here there is Sun is shining right in my face right now. So this clip right here is ah, another sports clip. And I slowed it down by 10%. But the very first part of the clip is just played a normal speed, this part here and then once he hits the top of the ramp. Then I slowed down a 10% and gives a nice contrast between real time and super slow mo. So we'll just play this. Maybe I could even, you know, I I shouldn't have done a 10%. Maybe 20% would have been better. But now that I've already completed the project, more or less will be. Might be a bit tricky to re time things. So this projector took me, You know, I started it last night, but then I woke up this morning just to reviewed with Ah, you know, Well, while it was fresh, full of energy, different perspective, and I just come back from coffee. So the point is that these videos can take a bit of time to you got to be in the right mindset. You get to be motivated. So don't be too hard on yourself if you can't get ah video project done. Sometimes it takes a bit of time to get a project complete. It is a project, so yeah, just be easier on yourself. Que The next clip is Siegels and and in the same thing here rial time. And then this is slowed down the 20%. That's that was pretty nice because we had good lighting when you recorded high frame rates like HD 1 20 it's not very good for low light performance, so it helps if you do it in bright daylight. So that skateboard clip was a little bit noisy because it was at night time there. We've just got this is ah, believe of four K 60 frames. Clip and let me just show you here. But scaling on this. Yeah. So this is 100% and I've actually slowed this down 60% Onda transition. They're two completely different scene. Okay. These are the time war clips here goes, Well, the music, because very fast. Okay. And this is a time lapse here. Ah, a few things to talk about. I'm just going to expand this panel here. Okay, so this is key frames. Meaning that scaling is changing. See it zooming in a bit as we're going along. Okay. And then a I just put some b roll on top of it on the, uh the V two truck V one is our primary track for this project, so I just layered smother video clips on top and actually sped up the time last 130%. As you can see over there, you got another time lapse, and I'm key framing on that to Sochi. Framing is a good technique just to, you know, just Teoh make it more interesting to zoom. Zoom in while you're doing a time lapse. So I'm just letting this time or play through, okay, This one here, this is actually just a regular moving clip and I also key frame that starts off a 100 then goes up to about 135 140. And I did that just to, you know, give it more of ah zoomed in, feel another time warp there and then we transition from day to night. So I used an interesting transition Just just Teoh smoothing that out Got a time warp in night. And this the scenes I've selected here and there You may now not know Vancouver, but a lot of these scenes are grouped together so that they're somewhat related. - Okay , I recommend you watch the full video which I'll put in the course because it's a bit choppy when playing it back during this lesson. But the music ends and then I put I finish with a strong scene, just the clip of the GoPro. So has that sort of commercial fuel. I feel that it is Ah GoPro course. We're trying to promote the GoPro aids. So I just put a title their regular speed because we've been yeah, watching a lot of sped up clips. It was just nice change of pace. So one other thing I wanted to point out is I'm using the default colors here what I could do is put over an adjustment layer. So an adjustment layer is just to apply, but of, ah, saturation or a unique type of look, It's a little bit tricky when you're doing an HD Project C by default and wants to do 9 20 by 10. 80. But because we have HD clips in here, we have to resize it to four k so that we can lay this over talk. So I'm just gonna expand the timeline with the tilde and then just expend this adjustment layer to the entire length of the projects. All right? No. All right, so now we need to look at our colors. We need our limit tree color. They could just do things like apply saturation to the entire projects. Let's just say 1 10 I just want to check the HD clips, see how that applied. Okay, that looks all right. If I wanted to be a bit more edgy, Weaken, actually, there's some decent filters over here under the creative panel, so I could just take a look through them. Difficult, because sun shining right on by okay, for example, I could double click there and then have this filter applied to the entire project. Just crushed. No. Be premier crashes a lot anyway, so that is pretty much the video edit. I think that's a good segue. Way to end. And the last step would be just too exports the project and ah, and then that's it. All right, when you're ready to finish your project, you can export. I believe the shortcut is controlling him or can just go to file. And this is where we can select our former. I'm going to post this to YouTube, so I'm gonna just select the YouTube four k ultra HD preset, and this is where I could just rename the projects already created a previous version. But this one has the color adjustment adjustment layer, and you can see the file sizes pretty big 651 megabytes. I'm just gonna check maximum render quality. And one thing you might want to do is at this point some programs let you create a screenshot, and I've really done one, actually. And then you could just use that for a YouTube thumbnail. So I'm gonna click Q and that's gonna put it in the adobe encoder and then we just need to basically just create the video fall. So that's it. And ah. So if he wants an overview of how to publish the video to YouTube, please, please refer to the Maldives section, where we covered publishing the entire video thumbnails, keywords everything, and you can apply the same principles to this video as well. 17. Gopro stock footage workflow: Hi. Welcome to this video. We are going to cut some stock footage, clips from GoPro, eight footage in a variety of frame rates and resolutions. And Dobie Premier, 2019 a quick overview of what we're doing in this contacts. Why am I creating stall clips? Well, because we want a licensed this footage and we have to trim them so that they are ready to be published on an agency. So what that means is you got to pick up the best portions that are either stable or usable for the customers, and they need to be between seven seconds and one minute you don't want any shaky or unstable footage, and after that we're going to export them in batch. Then we're going to rename them and upload them. And, ah, I'll post some videos that will show you the process to actually keyword them. Using a CSS file that are compatible with agencies like Adobe stock. You can also upload them to a platform like Black box, which will take care of pushing out or syndicating your clips to the top three shutter stock up on five and adobe stock. It is November 2019. Eyes up now, and things do change in this industry. Black Box will take a cut in exchange for that service, but I'm just going to show you and include the lesson for Adobe stock if you want full work clothes for black box shutter stock Pond five, you can take a look at my stock footage. Course stock footage from minister class and yeah, let's go. So we are looking at our Adobe premiere. 2019. We have our clips here. I'm just expanded so you can see have a glance that we've got some clips in HD 120 frames and then over here we can see 29.97 That was actually 60 frames in the GoPro, and these are four K ultra HD ever any pre screen new meaning that I've selected clips that I plan to do for stock footage. So I've already done some form of filtering and let's get started. So and a double click on this clip and I've already selected a portion of this clip because I used it for the video. So if you're interested, I use oh as the endpoints and I as my starting point. No okay. And something I'm gonna do after I've picked out the portion I went and he was gonna mark, just double click on the following name and put an X before. So that tells me that I've already I've already ah, worked on it, and it's ready to be exported. Okay, That one there I cannot use because I don't have a moral release. Okay, we'll do some more hair. So in adobe, you can see how how long the clip is to 28 over here. That's not long enough. So I'm gonna expend the starting point. So I played back just to watch it. No. And in case you're wondering, we don't need to include the sound. I'll get rid of that during the export process, so you don't need to worry about done right now, okay? And yeah, this is a 22nd clip. That's okay. Give the customer, but more. If you got the usable footage, remember to safe once in a while. Don't be permanent. Does does crash. So would be terrible if you maybe you've done some work, and then it just crashes. You lose all of it. Okay. Over here, press I as a starting point. All right, us. Another angle. These clips were all taken in the same area. Okay, so that's a 22 2nd clip. So again, I mark X. All right. I think you get the idea. I'm goingto do that for more clips, and then when we come back, I'll cover the export process. How? I prep them for exports, and, yeah, we'll see you in a bit. 18. Gopro stock footage Part 2: I Welcome back. Hope you've trimmed your clips or picked up the best portions on them. I certainly have. And now I'm ready to He started the next step. The next step is I like to put it in Listsview rather than thumbnail view in the media browser. I'm just going to expand this because I don't need I don't need the timeline and viewer right now, and I'm gonna sort by name. Just so I've got all the clips with the ex and I'm going to right click and create a sequence. All right. Okay. Have you seen Eclipse? That might need a little bit of adjustment. You can go to the actual clip in the sequence view, and ah, make your correction. Maybe you just need adobe to do it for you. Okay? So take a look after eclipse. I'm using GoPro color, by the way and for stock footage, you don't want toe oversaturated or stylized it because customers want that. I want to do that themselves because they may need to match it with their own footage. So it's actually a good idea to leave it as original from the camera as you can. Unless there are things like overexposure, things like that. All right, so we're just working our way down here, and I'm keeping an eye on the clips to see if they need any adjustment. And Ah, I just want to mention you don't want to in clean, similar clips. That's a pet peeve of some agencies they're getting really picking these days. You want to pick out some of your best clips clips that you think will sell? And yes, I even got some clips on the GoPro because someone may need Teoh create a GoPro course or commercial. You just never know. Okay, now that we've created sequences for all the clips we want to export, we're going to right click. Actually, we're going toe Hold on, Control. And I'm just gonna click on the icons for these sequences. Okay, I think I got them all. Lastly, going to right? Click and select export media. Okay, at this point, we're waiting for the pop up to come up and then in Dobie is gonna ask, are you ready to export this? So I've got a preset here that I've made for stock footage and I'll just cover the setting briefly. Okay, So I've checked maximum render quality and, ah, unchecked the audio. Okay, we're doing two passes, and, uh, yeah, these are arbitrates settings. So they're encoded with H 264 All right, so I'm gonna put this in the adobe encoder que and I'll just show you my cue. This may take a little bit of time. In the meantime, I'm going to open up a program that I used to rename them when they're done, and this program is free. And I looked through a lot of programs for windows, and, yeah, this one's by far my favorite. If you're using a Mac, you're lucky you can use. They have built in tools, so you don't need to buy anything. All right? I think we have finished, so I'm just gonna bring this tool up. I'm just gonna show you the door be in quarter Q. All right. So here are our files and Joe being Kotak, you've got that project ready to cue up. Electric, UAB, all my video files I want to create before I press play, and you can see it's got my stock finished preset. I'm just going to change the location of where the Falls Air saved. So it doesn't get mixed up with my other videos because by default, it's gonna go to video Go pro November 21st place. Like full there. And all I need to do is press play at this point and I can take a break and let the computer do some work. I'll quickly cover the advance rename Erso. When they're finished, they are going to have these fall names. And for stock footage I like to have I have a fall naming standard that tells me a few things. And this is what this program looks like. So basically, I'm gonna drag everything in here. And, uh, let me see if I do have a test file. Okay? I'll just pulling a test file. Okay, let's just see, Okay, We'll use this one here. I'm gonna drag in the original GoPro project. Just expand it. All right, So this is the original file name, and I've got a filter here. You can It's like add method. I'm just selecting ad. So add is just gonna add this to the beginning of the fall name. So the original following is GoPro a project video, so I like to least put the name of the destination and some information about the camera. I separated with the hyphen and then I put the resolution and then month and year dash. So that basically adds that this is what the new fall name is. Van Dash GoPro A dash four k November 2019 Which is exactly what we have here. And then basically, we just click, start, batch, click, start, and then it automatically renames the fall. So we will do that after the adobe quarter finishes and then the last step, which I won't do now because the falls in on ready yet. So this is seems already have an adobe stock account. Ivor, any set up all my set My settings like my account and all I need to do after the Falls air done is just dragged them into this window here. And after that. This is where you're gonna watch the key wearing video for Adobe stock to understand how you can put the titles and keywords, but in the batch, because you may have 20 or more files and you don't want you want to do that is officially as possible. So remember to watch that video. And that's basically my workflow for cutting footage on Adobe Premiere 2019 and works to go pro eight. And I've got clips approved using this method. There is more than one way to do things, but this is the way that I do things. So feel free to experiment. And if you find a better way, please share with me and hope you enjoy this video and you found helpful and you actually manage to sell some your GoPro eclipse using what you've learned in this course. 19. Gopro vancouver hyperlapse edit pt 1: Hey, what's up, guys? It's 2021. And I thought I would do an update video using GoPro footage. And a lot of this footage is shot in 4K. We've got The Final Cut, Pro on Mac Mini M1. So we have the horsepower, we have a machine to create a really awesome video. So just to start out my general process, when creating a video on this setup, I would import the footage which I already have. So simply just drag the footage from your finder over to the Media Browser area over here. Or you can go to File Import media. Not going to spend too much time on the actual technical aspects of Final Cut Pro. This is just more about how we actually produce the video. So now that we've got the footage all in here, I've got the frame size column just to tell me which resolution is in here. So the majority of it is in 3840 times 2160. So this is old TRA HD 4K footage. So I'm going to create this in 4K since it's 2021. And there's a few clips that I do like in HD. So I'm going to try to incorporate that somehow, maybe into the credits or the title. And the purpose of this video is that it's going to go on to YouTube. I'm going to use to showcase stock footage, to showcase what the GoPro can do. And the next step before we actually start the project is to find some music. So I'm going to try find some fast-paced music to go along with this. There's a site here called mixed kit, and they have some free stock music tracks. You can even monetize on these trucks. So that's one choice. I've also got some artists from Bandcamp. So I've actually paid a license for this. So i like bureaucratic. I've licenses footage and there's some other artists on here, so I'm just going to search for the music tracks that I like. And when we rejoin, I'll show you what I've got going on in the timeline. Okay, everyone, so I promised that we would rejoin once I've started the timeline and a half. In fact, I've chosen my music track. It's a really fast-paced technical track. And we've got the title over here, Vancouver hyperlinks mode 2019 is the 2019 footage. And I really wanted to start off with, with a lot of energy. So the very first clip, we've got a nice, believe this is a smear transition in Final Cut Pro. And so we start off as really fast pace. We're changing scenes. And what's great about this music and high prolapse is that you don't need to do a lot of matching the clips of the beat. So it's pretty quick to lay things down and I think it just keeps people's engagement. So I'm gonna do a few things here just to add production value and I'm not finished yet. I think I've got enough footage to do one more track. So let's just share some of my tabs here. So we've thrown a transition once in a while just to keep people guessing. So over here, I've got a inset transition. And over here we've got some object. I think this is the table in the background. So this is a great opportunity to do what we call a scale keyframe. In Final Cut Pro in Adobe Premiere, there's something similar. And basically you're cropping in as eclipse progresses. So we're going to start at a 100%. So I'm just going to add a key frame. And then by the time we get to the end, let's just try 140. This clip we'll zoom in, so that's pretty nice. So that's a little tricky you can do to make the clip a bit more interesting. Ok, so between the change from day to night probably could use a transition as well. So I'm just going to search for something that's appropriate. Not not to in your face. Doorways, pretty nice. So we access transitions from here. It might be a bit too much. Let's just use duplicate. That's a bit more subtle. Or you go, okay. Yeah, so we've got about two minutes of video. And so I'm going to find another track. I'm going to lay down some more clips. And my workflow here is I'm basically looking for the high prolapse clips. I didn't filter for them. But what's great in photocopy pro, especially if you have the M1 and Eclipse have already been. Transcode IDS is very quick to scrub through. So I can just browse through all of these clips. And I'm just inserting the Hyperloop swans. So when we rejoin, I'll probably have another music truck on there. I'll have some more clips. And then we're gonna do some final touches just to polish this up before we exported out. So stay tuned. 20. Vancouver Hyperlapse edit pt 2: Alright, welcome back. I think we have a pretty good project right now. And we got a couple more music tracks, the same type of music. It's a trans house. So very upbeat type of music, which goes along very nicely with these tracks. And pretty much just repeated the pattern thrown in allowed transitions. And I've been watching this footage to make sure that everything does go along together, it does make sense. So from an editor perspective, it's pretty much just repeating the same style. Now there's a couple of things I wanted to show you to polish this up before I actually do export the video. Alright, so I'm gonna fade this out. I've already applied the fate to colour effect. So this has the block, right? And then what I can do is fade out the music. So if you're doing a video for YouTube, this is one tip here. If you are on the YouTube partner programs, so you have a thousand subscribers or more, it's to your benefit to make a video that's at least eight minutes long. Why? Because that means that you can access the middle ads. And this allows you to place more ads in the video. If you had it under eight minutes, you only get one ad which YouTube automatically decides where to place that. So if you can make the video a little bit longer. So I'm planning to maybe put a promotional video at the end of people want to learn the style video. I can do that at the end if you want to put a call to action, which I have, I'm not going to enable this because some of the platforms don't like promotion within the course material. You can also add a YouTube intro. So I've a standard YouTube intro that I add to a lot of my videos. So this is what it looks like. It's just a nice 15-second video that people are not familiar with. My channel can get an idea of what this channel is about. Lastly, you can fade out the music if you want. So on Final Cut Pro, we can just use our mouth to do that. And we can just reduce the size of the truck or the length. And if you have any hanging dead space there be sure to delete that otherwise that's going to be included in the project. I'm just going to controls out there because I'm gonna able my call to action later on. And one more thing, we need to apply some color adjustment. Okay, so I haven't done any color grading. I like to use what we call an Adjustment Layer in Final Cut Pro. So I can apply a lookup table, which is a stylized look. To the entire project. Let's go ahead and do that. So this is not included with Final Cut Pro. I actually do sell a plug-in if you search for it on Google, Final Cut Pro Adjustment Layer, gray Kang. Or it can make your own, or you can just find one on the internet by just not include it with Final Cut Pro. Alright, so because we have a 4K project, I'm just going to bring this down. I'm not gonna do it over the intro because we don't need it over the intro. And then I'm just going to drag this adjustment layer so it covers the entire project. And now we can do some fun things. So let me just show you some examples here. If I go to the effects, I can go over to comic books. And I think this video might look really nice with a comic look. So if I drag the comic look over, right, it kinda gives me a whole new perspective. So I actually might make one version as a comic. Alright, and then I can just simply highlight the adjustment layer. Uncheck that. Now I can find my lookup table. If I go to custom looked. We're just gonna make sure we're on all. So this is not actually the lookup table that just allows you to find it. So I'm going to find my lookup table. These are third party Lutz here. So I can actually dial down the effect to 50%, just to give you an idea of what this looks like. So this is a nice, clean, pretty safe type of lookup table. So if I uncheck that, you can see what difference it makes. Ok, so lastly, we need to export this so we can click on over there. Create a master file. Simply just name it, make sure that you're doing the video and the audio. I like to do H.264 for YouTube. File size is 3.18. This is 30-40 times 2060. So yes, 4K hit next, and that's pretty much our edit. So hope you enjoyed this behind the scenes workflow of how I edited this GoPro video on Final Cut Pro. And it's a joy to edit this on my setup here. I'm just going to share this. This is Final Cut Pro 10.5.1. And this is on a Apple Mac Mini Mac OS Big Sur version 11.116 gigs Apple m1. This is a great setup to edit this footage. Otherwise it might have been slow if I added this two years ago on a different type of machine. So hope you enjoyed this and I hope you enjoyed the course. And good luck on your project.
