About This Class

Learn how to film super smooth video and new creative shots like hyperlapses, and motion lapses with a Gimbal for your smartphone, SLR, or mirrorless camera. Gimbal technology has moved from drones to regular cameras enabling you move around freely without a tripod and film new types of videos for new applications like property video tours, hyperlapses, motion lapses, filming from a car, and more.

This course will cover techniques across a range of DJI gimbals and cameras as well as a complete workflow for editing video shot by these cameras. Will will also include a full-workflow for video editing footage shot on this setup on Adobe Premiere. As a bonus I will share a business model and the workflows to monetize on the unique footage you take. Take your video production to the next level and learn gimbal film-making and more by enrolling the the course

Transcripts

1. Ronin S Intro: Hi. Welcome to the complete guy for cinematic filmmaking with camera gimbals and cranes. My name is Greg Kong. I'm a Canadian videographer. My first experience using Gimble Technology was with DJ I drones. And now this company has brought Gimble technology over to our bigger cameras like RGs, Lars and Remi. Airless cameras. We can also use Gimbels on smartphones as well as built in cameras. We're going to cover the fundamental techniques across a range of different camera gimbals and camera setups. One example is the de Girona asked right here with a Panasonic GH five merely camera. But we're also going to cover DJ I Osmo, which has its own four K built in camera. We're gonna cover D J Osmo, which is a big moment for your smartphone. We're gonna cover the special techniques that are available to you for each camera set up as well as which situations they're best suited for. Give most of light do amazing new video techniques like hyper lapses, motion lapses, filming from a moving vehicle like a motorbike or truck, or even new different type of techniques like low angle shots or running gunshots. So we're gonna take this a step further by teaching you how to add it. The footage shot from these cameras in programs like Adobe Premiere and Final Cut Pro X. Just to take that even further, we're going to cover how you can license your video footage. The business model to build a passive income with amazing footage. You're going to shoot from these cameras involved. This sounds good, and you want to take your filmmaking to the next level. Click on the roll button and we'll see you in the course. 2. Ronin S Why do you need a gimbal: we're gonna talk about. Why do you need a gimbal for filmmaking? Most of all, it's for new filming techniques and for super smooth video. The trend these days is towards stabilisation from in your camera body in your lens. But there's nothing that could beat the stabilization that you get from gimble. Companies like GoPro are building stabilization into the cameras. Even D. J has an action camera with stabilization, but the smoothest by far is going to be from a gimbal on a drone if you've ever seen those videos and just think about how fast those aircrafts air flying. So what this allows you to do is things like property tours. You can show off Rheal states. You can show off a building, or you could just walk down the street. He can film from a moving vehicle. You can fill me fence. I've seen some music videos where they're using a gimbal to keep the action continuous but not very boring by just leaving it on a tripod and just moving it around eso a lot of different applications that you can use the skin before one that I think would be a perfect fit is for moving option things like concerts or weddings or network events where you want to keep the camera going and but showing around the rib or the events, so that helps you think about different types of shots you can get. I do want to add that because it is on basically a motorized or robotic arm that you can pre programmed movements off the gimbal and that allows you do things like that. Motion time lapses Were you pre programmed the path? You can also do things like hyper lapses. You can do basically a moving time locks, which looks pretty cool. So all these shots are not available to people without Gimbels, so it's almost like you need a gimbal Teoh. Keep up with video making in 2019 and beyond. Just as drones was a big revolution in filmmaking, I believe gimbals are definitely a step forward 3. Gimbals on the Market: in this lesson. I'm gonna talk about some of the different Gimbels on the market, and then we're gonna get into more detail on this gimbal right here, which is the de Girona in this eso The first Gimbels that we saw were DJ I osmo at least gimbels on the ground. So this had a built in camera. Uh, it could do a lot of the same techniques as this, except the camera wasn't as good. You were working with a fixed lens. You were working with the camera's sensor that wasn't as large and not as good as in low light. Now, with the trend in 2019 you have cranes and gimbals from D John, different companies that can hold bigger cameras like DS Lars and wireless cameras. So the advantage is that these lenses are more powerful. They can either zoom in. They allow more lights so I can get the same benefit that you had with the Jocz, most so filming from moving vehicles filling while you walk low angle shots. But now you're getting a lot better camera to do that with So Tony. In the past couple years that this has been available eso doing is one Chinese company that has ah, popular crane. But when DJ I released the De Girona s, that's when I started to take notice because the big advantage with DJ I is that they built really good APS that talk really well to the machines. So having used this for over a month and 1/2 I can see that the APP is really good allows you to easily do things like figure motion lapses did easily do things like camera movements. The technology is very liable. The bill quality is good and the price is very fair. S o d J Ronan s is built to whole cameras up, Teoh believe, 3.4 kilograms. So I can actually put on a bigger lens here and still be able to hold that. So it's very sturdy, very durable. Um, but it is very heavy. So that's the price you pay for this type of filmmaking. And but yeah, so D j Ronan waas, um used to be a two handed form factor, but now this is a single form factor, So it's not that bulky, but it still is pretty heavy, but allows you to do a lot with your larger camera 4. Mounting the Ronin S on a Camera: when you're ready, toe, start setting up your de Girona s year going to first attach the plates to the camera that you're going to use, and then we're going to mountain balance our camera onto the road and Gimbel. Now, for me, this was probably one of the points that I struggle with the most because a lot of the video tutorials on the Internet are not very effective for me. So let's get started. The tools that you will need are obviously your camera, uh, your running kit and it is useful to have a good coin. Okay, so this part is M four, and what you want to do is just attach it to the threatening underneath so you can start off by screwing it in halfway. Okay, so I have the plane screwed on halfway, and I'm going to use the coin just to make sure that it's tight. Next, you want amount this longer? Plaint. Here. This is a rs 002 and you can actually look at the arrow on this plate. It should be facing the lens. Eso just find a 0.2 mounted on. You could slide the scoop to find a good spot. So there's two mounting points. I'm going to choose the one closest to the lens. And again screw that in with your finger or a screwdriver, and then you can use a coin to tighten it. Okay, so mine's gonna look like that Notice. There's a ruler on the sides, so it's very flexible for a variety of setups, but the actual payload four the Ronan s is about 3.4 kilos. So make sure that's you know how much your body and lens and additional accessories way and also factor in that these plates do carry some weight as well. Okay, so we got those two plates on there. Now the last parts is lend support. So it consists of this little guy here and a screw. So simply, just he must attach it on here, and then you can just manually screwed on. You don't want to tight. Otherwise you won't be able to change your focal in if you have a zoom lens. But if you have a prime lens, that it doesn't matter. This is just to support the lens, especially the longer lenses. Um, if they're going to be moving around a lot like this if you're using the gimbal for quick, quick movements. So there we go. So we have a pretty tight fit with the mounting plate, and now we've gotta take the running out. 5. Setting up and Balancing: Okay, We've got our cameras set up, and now we're just going to take are running out. So first thing we want to do is just take this part out. This is like our tripod legs followed by the handle. This is the part. Looks like a lightsaber. Tighten their Okay, so make sure you got battery in there. You can just press the button at the bottom. I've got three bars, so probably need Teoh charge us up. There's about 12 hours of battery life, so they could just simply screw this on to the smaller screw. Okay. Make sure it's snug. Okay? So you should have your base like that. Next. We're gonna take out the rest. Okay? So you want to take the Velcro off? I'm just gonna close the bag. Clear the table. Okay? Don't lose this Velcro, because it's very useful for packing the ronin when you're traveling. Okay, so I can see that I've got some loose screws here because I just came from a trip, so just make sure that you've got the screws on, so nothing just slides off and then your next step. So this is like, step three is you want to attach this base to your foundation. So simply just angle this bottom part here to the top. He was just just see the joystick there, and joystick is going to slide in nicely like that, and then you want to lock that lock that lever. Very important. Make sure that's tight. If it's not tight, you can take it out, make sure it's in all the way and then make sure that's locked. Okay, so now we've got our base here. Now it's time to mount the camera and start to balance the road into our cameras. Set up waken. See? There's unlock and lock, and this is where you might want to stand up. So you need to press this button over here. If you need to slide it in, you can see I'm having trouble because I need a bit more space so you can adjust this camera mount. Planes here slide towards the edge a bit more. Make sure you lock it after you move it, Okay, it's in. No. So to bounce the first access, you need to hold the arm where it says ronin, and you want to hold on to your camera lens because you don't want to slide off the mount plate. But you want it to balance so it doesn't slide off. Okay? And what we're doing here is once we're letting go off the camera just to make sure its balance but our cameras still there, our hand is still there just to make sure that the camera doesn't fall off. Okay, So look in my right hand. I'm holding this access. But now, if I like go, I can see that his balance. If it's unbalanced, you can see that the lenses leaning too far, Ford. So no need to move it back. And once you find the right measurement, you can then lock it on the left side. I'll just do from this direction, okay? May need some adjustment here, so I'm gonna unlock. Okay. I need to move it back of bed. I can see it's leaning forward. Okay, so that's OK. So I'm gonna go ahead and lock this. OK? So that's our first access. You can even take a photo. You can see there on the plate. There's ah, there's a ruler there, so I can see that. Just passed. 22.1 is the right setting to balance this camera and lens set up. Okay. What? A lot of the tutorials are on the Internet. Don't tell you is that you need to hold this while you're balancing the second access is the tilt axis. So to do this, we want to be able to while holding the Roman arm again. We want the cameras set up to just stay up by itself. So it's not doing that right now. I just want to go back. So what I need to do is unscrew this. Make sure you're holding the mouth plates here. I'm always worried something might slide off, So with that loosened, just pull it up a bit and, uh, yeah, tested outs. So I've got the camera set up pointing straight up. Now, another tip here is you want to take the lens cap off because I'm mocking me fooling with the lens cap. So you want to make sure that if you're gonna be filming with an nd filter, uh, leave that own if you're gonna All of us, they're not gonna fill the lands capsule. Take that off. Okay, so no left hand holding up here and Ah, it's staying straight up. So that's what we want. I wanna lock that street in, make sure that's tight so that this screw doesn't bump into, uh, the motor. Okay, so we've got our first access there. We got the second access there, and now the last axis is to make sure that this arm can stay perfectly balance, which is is not so to do that. I'm just going to loosen that up and just make a micro adjustment, and she can see there no hands. And I was perfectly balanced. Let me just show you from another angle. See how balance it over there and all three access are now bounce. Now, when a tightness. Okay, it is possible that some micro adjustments are needed once you've balance one of the access . Maybe that through one of the other accesses out of alignments. So don't be afraid to go back and make a micro adjustment. So if things all three access our balance, that's a good idea to take a photo off the exact set up. If you're that kind of person and you can recall it, it'll save you some time. I can see here. I mean, may need to make a micro adjustment because it's leaning back. So I'm just gonna push this ford a little bit just a bit. Just a bit, okay? There we go. Even the slightest movement can throw your balance off. Another tip is to make sure you're doing this on a solid surface, okay? And now what we're gonna do just to make sure that its balance is to open up the running app and then I'm going to go use the balance feature. 6. Testing your Balance and Autotune: Okay, guys, with the Ronan app installed on your phone, you want to make sure that you've turned on the Ronan on the base, so just press the button once you should see a green light and at the top, press down once you should hear the sound, not you can connect through Bluetooth by clicking on the connect to Ronan button. And after you've done that, we can go over to configuration setting and click balance tests. But it's let the road and do its thing. And then, ideally, you're gonna want to see excellent across the pitch. Y'all on the role. If not, go ahead and turn off the ronin and then makes a micro adjustments. Try again. Make sure you're doing this on a solid surface and make sure everything was perfectly bounce. So I'm lucky here. I've got yaw roll and pitch. That's excellent. So the next thing we need to do is go over to back out of their go to motor parameter, and then you can select auto tune, so it's gonna take a minute or two. So just don't touch the ruin and world doing this. You're gonna hear some noises. 40% Okay, I got calibration success. Okay? This is also ah, good opportunity to go over some of the basic controls, uh, under all attitude or beside auto tune. And I can see that I've got a medium profile. So this is not too fast, Not too slow. There's another setting for low. So what? These are our presets. So if it's low, it's gonna be lots slower to do things like pen, which is sometimes what you want when you don't want overly fast pan. So if I go too high on the app, you can see that it's a little bit faster but more aggressive. So I'm gonna go ahead and just change it over the medium, and you can change these things automatically if you just tap on them. So these air just presets. Uh, there's also advanced settings. I don't touch those. Okay, so now that we have our own balance and our motor on iTunes, let's go over some of the basic controls for the room 7. Ronin basic controls: So now that we've balanced our Ronan, we've auto tuned it. Let's go over some of the basic controls. So for this lesson, make sure that you've got your Ronan turned on and your own app connected. So our basic controls here is that you can use the joystick. I've got the Ronin Essentials kit so I don't have cable connected from the ronin to my camera. So the joy six. Basically, if you go left, it's going laugh rights. Gonna pan rights Now goes, uh, it's gonna tilt up down till down. Okay, uh, this light over here indicates the user profile so you can switch simply by pressing M. There's different user profiles that you can configure in the app. If you go to configuration, I'll go into that a bit later. But I just want to let you know that I m allow you to change that. So going to stick to user profile one. If you want to re center simply just press on this trigger here twice. Okay, If you click on it four times, click it and four times and you hold it down. The lights are going to flash green, and that means it's entering the joystick configuration mode, so you can, ah, put the joystick around in all directions and then tap again four times and holds okay to put the camera in a selfie moon you can tap three times now if you have the flip out screen . This is very useful if you want to see what you're filming, and I'll get into that under filming techniques a bit later. Okay, lets pointed the other way. You can hold down M when you see the light yellow. That means in sport mode. This means you can be a bit more aggressive. Light a phone. Fast movements. Okay, um, getting the flashlight mode. Hold it like this. Press twice. All right. The flashlight moon is going Teoh allow you to get into low angle mode, which I'll get into been later but also allows you to film um 3 60 mode. It also loves the film. Without that bouncy looks of flashlight mooned, we'll get into a lot more 8. Ronin S Fundamental Techniques: either. In this video, I want to cover some of my favorite film making techniques with the rodent s. So let's get straight to it. Some of these require a lot of arm strength. So, um yeah, used two hands. Also, be careful when walking through crowds. And, um, if you're using a low aperture lens like a F 1.4, it's a little bit harder and trickier to focus. So be sure. Teoh, pay attention to your flip out screen. If you have one, make sure that you have a function like peeking on. So peaking will highlight in a certain color the objects or the people that are in focus. So it's a little bit easier to monitor as you're filming and walking. Okay, so this is our main position here. I have to retract or just fold up the legs here, and I like to re center the gimbal by just pressing twice on the trigger. Eso This is your standard position. And if you're gonna be filming like this, if you're just walking, you're gonna be getting a bit of a bounce to try. Try not Teoh. Be too abrupt when you're walking. Try just keep level. So one way to reduce the amount of bounce is the flashlight technique. So how I like to do it is I like to hold on the trigger and then just let let the whole stick go down to 90 degrees and then click the trigger twice again. So from this position, I like to hold on the trigger while I'm walking and I'll just go like this. Okay, so that's the flashlight technique now from the flashlight technique. There's a number of ways to do this, but I like to, uh, go down too low angle so low angle while holding them trigger. You can just let the stick down like this. And while it's in the low angle position, I like to flip up the screen if you have one, because you can then hold it like this. But you can still monitor the picture from the articulated flip out screen so I can pay attention to this and hold it like this. It was more than one way to do this, and this is just a couple of suggestions. When you're also doing the low angle technique, you want to make sure, depending on the lens that you're using, that you are getting some of the floor and there. But it's also angled up. So if it's angled up, you can also see the people walking. So sometimes the camera lens one point up. So you need to just raise it a bit, get it to the angle that you want and then leave it. Leave its at that angle, hold on the trigger. And then while it's in the resting position, you can angle the lens down lips. Just do that a bit slowly, Okay, like this. So then I can walk like this. An experiment. You'll find different techniques that work you can film on the floor like this. And then a nice technique I like to do is to go from the low floor position over to the flashlight position. So you get a nice kind of ah crane crane cinematic movement. So I found the bottom press twice to reposition it, hold on the trigger, and then just lifted up to the flock flight position. Okay, so not gonna cover some real world filming techniques. Um, especially if you're in a crowded place like a night market. Something like that. Let's just say that you want to film backwards so you can put it in selfie mode top three times. And now it's filling behind me so I can use this flip out screen if you have one. And use that to make sure that you've got stuff and focus, okay? And then you can even just top record. And you can film like this while you're walking, right? So this gives you a different angle. You can hold it up high, especially if you're in a crowd and you can just hold it up and get a really nice high angle view on. You don't need to get yourself in it. So that's just one suggestion before you can even just hold it like this, hold it up high and then tilt the screen down so that you can still see what you're filming . Okay, so those air some some of my favorite filming techniques, there are a lot more that you can use, but these are some of the fundamental techniques that I'm using with Ronan s and, ah, give it a try. There's a lot more techniques, and if I find more advanced techniques, I'll add them to the course 9. Ronin fundamentals Part 2: either this video. I'm going to talk about some of the fundamental skills Part two for de Girona, and have been filming with this for thinks it's June. So I got a good feel for the road and now, and I'll give you some of my top tips and techniques. So the first skill and you wanna master is balancing balancing the ronin and the quicker that you can balance your rodent, the become more efficient with using, and you're going to use it more. Uh, I also think it's important to master how you carry the rodent. It could be a drag because off the weight of the road in your camera. So I suggests getting familiar with the under slung mode. And so you can walk and just carry it while not folding it like this, because that could put in Los strain on your shoulder muscles. And I think it's great to get familiar with the running app because the apse very powerful . He can do things like program motion lapses. I like to do motion lapses when taking a break, maybe a coffee beer and you've got a nice table where you can just plant the ronin and just set point A to point B while you're taking a break, let their own and do the work and get an amazing time lapse. I also like to pre program the pan and tilt setting, so I've got a setting where it's got regular fast speed. I'll set that to profile. Three. I've got profile to set on the inception roll mode, Uh, and option one I'll just set it so it's very slow to pan and tilt so that I've got very and a smooth movements. You gotta be aware that when you're filming with the ronin, that sudden jerks and movements can be very distracting to the viewer. And sometimes you don't need that. And, uh, you know, when you're just filming, just try to remain as steady as possible. You can develop your own style. There's so many possibilities when you're filming with this. But I like to feel mostly with slow motion because you get more bang for your buck. More usable footage, and sometimes all it takes is 4 to 5 seconds when you're filming slow motion. But if you're foaming in real time like 24 frames, then there's more room to make mistakes When you're walking, try to avoid the ups and downs. Do the ninja walk and, um, try to keep this steady. You can also even just film without walking and then just using the joystick or making Cem uh, just moving your arm very in slow, steady movements so that allow the gimbal to move naturally in combination with the trigger to keep your focus on the target. So develop your own style. Eso those air Some tips for improving your filmmaking with the Ronan and ah, yeah, have some fun. Uh, you can use this as a tripod. You can film it static and use the joystick form or mechanical Ah, but less less Ah, room for mistakes. And sometimes maybe you just need to make you consume you late. A dolly movement. You don't need to walk her run type of thing, but the ronin is capable of that. It does have sports mode. So hope some of those tips help you to get started with the ronin. And you can check up my course for a lot more techniques. And ah, happy foaming hope you get great amazing stuff. Please, like subscribe. If you find this video helpful and ah, check you later 10. Ronin S Special Techniques Filming night market and food: Okay, let's say you're in a night market or a flea market where it's pretty crowded and you're gonna be walking. And, uh, you want your camera above the action above. The people hold the camera up high like this. It's a little bit hard to focus or see what you're filming. So take advantage of the screen tilted down, and what I'll do is I'll just hold it like this with two hands and keep an eye on where I'm walking. And, um, yeah, just make sure that you're you're still and focus and that the cameras forming what it's supposed to by using the articulating screen. Another technique is to film backwards in selfie mode. So to do this, I'll tap three times and I'll hold it above my head. So I'm not in the picture, and what I'll do is I'll just flip the screen like this camera is off right now, but I think you get the idea is that I'll just help the screen like this and Aiken monitor what I'm seeing while I'm walking forwards. But the camera is facing backwards, so something like this. Okay, so hold it high. So it's above everyone's heads will be creative. I mean, these are just a few of the techniques that I've found, but there's a whole lot more also like to film food. And to do that, I like to just leave it on the try pond, or I like to do like, ah birdseye position. So something like this, I'll hold down the trigger and then I'll just move the camera like this. If I want to monitor the auction, all tilt the screen so I can see or I'll move the camera like this. Okay. Or you can leave it on the tripod and you can just tell to them. 11. Ronin s monetizing on your footage: this lesson. I'm gonna talk about how you can monetize on your video footage with video shot with the gimbal. And, uh, one of the good reasons why of Gimble footage is good foot for this business model is because it is unique types of shots. So the business model is called stock footage, and what it allows you to do is license your video clips on the Internet. I used stock footage agencies, but they're syndicates like black Box that will allow you to put those video clips up, and you can find people to keyword them for you and distribute them to the main agencies. You can also license them directly, and I will put lessons in here that show you the work flows for different types of agencies . But the main idea is that you could form a 10 to 22nd video clip, let's say, from a car and could sell up for 60 U. S. Agency to police takes half or 70%. But that clip can continue to sell, um, over time, especially if you're shooting with four K, and you can sell them on more than one agency. So it's a great model great investment. And by shooting on this gimbal, you're gonna get shots. You're gonna separate yourself with people without these things because you can film while you're walking. You can form those low angle shots where you're walking. Uh, you can film from a car, and that's new types of shots that isn't available before. And I think businesses are always looking for a new way to stand out a new way. Tell story. So I think that gimbal footage is a good fit for stock footage. I sold a lot of the eclipse on the deejay Osmo, things like walking through coric space or filming from a car because those shots are harder to get using. Just your your hand hold video work, so check out the lessons. And you know, the top agencies right now are shutter stock upon five and Adobe stock. See can upload to those sites yourself or can use a syndicate like Black box, which will automate some of that stuff for you. Um, and give it a try Does take some time. Um, it's better if you have a larger portfolio. If you want to see some results rather than just putting tank lips up and expecting something to happen. I personally have around 10,000 clips, and that brings me regular income. The beauty off this model is that it can be done from pretty much anywhere. The downside of it is that does take some time for the results to happen. Like if you were toe shoot video for someone, you get paid quicker because that's freelancing. Eso yeah, so that's stock footage, and that's one way you can license the video footage shot with your gimble. 12. Ronin S Flashlight: either. In this video, I want to cover some of my favorite film making techniques with the rodent s. So let's get straight to it. Some of these require a lot of arm strength. So, um yeah, used two hands. Also, be careful when walking through crowds. And, um, if you're using a low aperture lens like a F 1.4, it's a little bit harder and trickier to focus. So be sure. Teoh, pay attention to your flip out screen. If you have one, make sure that you have a function like peeking on. So peaking will highlight in a certain color the objects or the people that are in focus. So it's a little bit easier to monitor as you're filming and walking. Okay, so this is our main position here. I have to retract or just fold up the legs here, and I like to re center the gimbal by just pressing twice on the trigger. Eso This is your standard position. And if you're gonna be filming like this, if you're just walking, you're gonna be getting a bit of a bounce to try. Try not Teoh. Be too abrupt when you're walking. Try just keep level. So one way to reduce the amount of bounce is the flashlight technique. So how I like to do it is I like to hold on the trigger and then just let let the whole stick go down to 90 degrees and then click the trigger twice again. So from this position, I like to hold on the trigger while I'm walking and I'll just go like this. Okay, so that's the flashlight technique now from the flashlight technique. There's a number of ways to do this, but I like to, uh, go down too low angle so low angle while holding them trigger. You can just let the stick down like this. And while it's in the low angle position, I like to flip up the screen if you have one, because you can then hold it like this. But you can still monitor the picture from the articulated flip out screen so I can pay attention to this and hold it like this. It was more than one way to do this, and this is just a couple of suggestions. When you're also doing the low angle technique, you want to make sure, depending on the lens that you're using, that you are getting some of the floor and there. But it's also angled up. So if it's angled up, you can also see the people walking. So sometimes the camera lens one point up. So you need to just raise it a bit, get it to the angle that you want and then leave it. Leave its at that angle, hold on the trigger. And then while it's in the resting position, you can angle the lens down lips. Just do that a bit slowly, Okay, like this. So then I can walk like this. An experiment. You'll find different techniques that work you can film on the floor like this. And then a nice technique I like to do is to go from the low floor position over to the flashlight position. So you get a nice kind of ah crane crane cinematic movement. So I found the bottom press twice to reposition it, hold on the trigger, and then just lifted up to the flock flight position. Okay, so not gonna cover some real world filming techniques. Um, especially if you're in a crowded place like a night market. Something like that. Let's just say that you want to film backwards so you can put it in selfie mode top three times. And now it's filling behind me so I can use this flip out screen if you have one. And use that to make sure that you've got stuff and focus, okay? And then you can even just top record. And you can film like this while you're walking, right? So this gives you a different angle. You can hold it up high, especially if you're in a crowd and you can just hold it up and get a really nice high angle view on. You don't need to get yourself in it. So that's just one suggestion before you can even just hold it like this, hold it up high and then tilt the screen down so that you can still see what you're filming . Okay, so those air some some of my favorite filming techniques, there are a lot more that you can use, but these are some of the fundamental techniques that I'm using with Ronan s and, ah, give it a try. There's a lot more techniques, and if I find more advanced techniques, I'll add them to the course 13. Ronin S Traveling with it: Hello, everyone. This is Greg Hung here in Vancouver, Canada, with my De Girona asks this video I'm gonna give me some tips for traveling with the rodent ass on long haul travel. So I'm talking about flights that air 10 hours long where you may have to go through multiple airports, multiple cities, and you want to travel with this thing now, uh, get first thing. This is heavy. And, um, when you do travel with that, you can either bring it with the casing or the packaging that came with it, which I still use, and ah, but that requires that you bring it on the plane and you've got an extra suitcase in your hand that's taking up your hand. You know, when you're going through the plains, when you're traveling through the airports, when you're putting things through security and that can add up to just being a drag on. And for my trip to Vancouver, I'm ready carrying a backpack. I might be carrying another bag and just having that hands free because I'm not planning to use the Ronan During my airport travels, I decided to transport it in my suitcase. Now there wasn't a lot of information when I searched on the Internet. Besides one guy suggesting that this battery here, you need to carry it on with you. So bringing with you onto the airplane put in your backpack because it is considered, um hi. Part battery. So this part here, I'll just disassemble it. So this part you want to disassemble and then just take it with you, just like you would with your drone and your batteries. So after you take out the battery, you're probably wondering what I do with the rest. Well, let me bring the suitcase out here. This'll suitcase here is ah, fits the ronin case, so I'm just gonna take it out. Not sure if you can see this, but Okay. The Ronan is sitting in one of these compartments way go fit all the parts into the ronin case, and this fits into a suitcase. So this is a medium sized suitcase that it was traveling with, and I think as long as you pack everything into here, put it in a hard, like a hard case suitcase. So it has extra protection. That worked out very well, and yeah, I took this part with me. And then there's still a little bit of room in your own in phone case to store some stuff, if you wanna. If you really budgeting, you know, the amount of stuff that you're carrying on the plane with you and, uh, yeah, so those my tips for traveling with de Girona nests on long haul travel a pack the actual package in a suitcase, and then bring the battery with you. 14. Ronin from Car HD 2: he there? Greg hung here in this video. I wanted to give you some tips for filming with your DJ. I Ronan s in your camera in a moving car. So lately, Vancouver, we've had a lot of sun here. And, um, I wanted to get out and film as much as possible before in the rain hits. And I think where the Ronan really shines is filming from moving vehicles. And ah, so I'll give you some tips for filming from a car. First tip is to find a driver. Don't try to do this on your own. It's it's gonna be dangerous to drive and film control. Ronan with one hand, you definitely need to focus full time on filming. So fine A driver. Ah, good driver from leader of the city. I asked my sister my dad and ask him to drive slow. Try to find a vehicle with sun roof that will really help Teoh get the optimal angle. Because if you're filming from the shock on seat, uh, you know, you have to film from outside on side of the window or you consider in the back seat if you want to straddle, but depending on the city that you're in, You may have to have your seatbelt on at all times, even if you're in the back seat. Yeah. Uh, if you're Malaysia, you don't need Teoh, so it depends which country you're in. The next step, I would recommend, is to film in slow motion. So I filmed in ah, ultra HD four k that's 38 40 by 2160 at 60 frames. So that slow motion is just gonna allowed to get a little bit mawr out of each second than you're filming. So if there's bumps or something or if the driver breaks or is the bomb you know, that couldn't just ruin the whole film clip. But if you're doing slow motion, sometimes you just need maybe five or six seconds. If you want a film for stock footage that five or six seconds can be enough to be usable footage, um also recommend to frame everything properly, get the right focal length, find the right opera chur and ah, right, I so and get your focus in, uh, just be aware. I mean, you're gonna have to just that as the driving conditions change and hit record stick the the road and out. I film from over the sun roof and I'll show you in some of the photos. I used the articulating screen because I was sticking the run and right out and, uh, I flip the screen so I could still see what the cab was looking at. But the cabin was straight out the sunroof, and, um, I used one of my pre pre configured settings, so that would be slow moving, slow moving on the pan and tilt so I could slowly move the camera, so recommend adjusting those settings in the room. A nap before you go out. Save it is one of your profile so you can access it while you're foaming. And then I would just use the joystick here to do slight adjustments while was sticking out the sunroof. Uh, the second thing is, if you have to film outside the window, try to be careful off traffic that would be coming on the side. Maybe cyclists or motorcyclists just try to tuck it in. So that year you're not sticking out beyond the mirror on the car. You can still get good shots and then just make some micro adjustments using the joystick. Make sure that you've adjusted your pants is not too fast. And you can still get pretty good shots using the side off the car and Ah, yeah, that's about it. Um, so finding a driver Ah, sun roof can help Articulating screen does help is well recording four K. You may want experiment holding down the trigger if you find that the the ronin is not focusing on the object. But I try to stay active and use the joystick to keep the ronin centred on the targets. Um, and also, yeah, be careful of traffic. Find a good driver that nose Vancouver or the city that you're filming. Well, you might wanna have a map map out your route ahead of time before you start the car. And, uh, if you don't have a car asunder, if you can use services if they have it in your city, where you can use an app to just hire a car for an hour or by minute in Vancouver, we have Evo moto cargo. Maybe in the city here in that might be different. You might even want to hire a grab taxi driver if you're in Asia or maybe an uber driver. So then you can just focus on filming. So hope these tips help you for filming footage with your own and from a car you can get really amazing stuff because of the stabilization. And, uh, all you need to do is have better knowledge. How about a skill and get out there and film? 15. Ronin S filming from a moving vehicle: this video. I'm gonna give you some ideas and tips for filming amazing video from moving vehicles. Now, some countries, you may have harder access to these vehicles. Certainly in Asia, uh, there's a lot more of these vehicles around, so I mean, that's gonna be smooth video filming from most vehicles with this set up. But certain vehicles are gonna be a lot easier. So filming from a car is the 1st 1 It's a lot safer, but you don't have as much open air. So, um, you know the best you can do is roll down both windows and you have to take the risk of not wearing your seatbelt. If you wanna move from the right sign. Two left sides. I like to film in slow motion. That means that allows you to get the most more out of your footage because it is slower. Now remember filming handheld with this Panasonic gauge five at Fleming at four K 60 frames per second, and that was pretty decent. But on this de Girona in and that footage becomes a bit smoother, you can also film from a motorbike and having tried that, I would say to be very careful because there is the possibility that you are going to be weaving in between cars and people. And you can really hurt someone if you it's hit someone with this. You can also damage your cameras. So, uh, certainly do that at your own risk now, Ah, vehicle that I like to film in that gives you a lot more open space. That it's a bit safer is something from a took took. So these air available in Thailand, Um, and some parts of Asia. So they have a lot of a lot more open room. Um, and they're fairly safe. But you slow get the benefit of a move moving vehicle. The equivalent in North America would be a golf carts, I know, but they're not available to everyone. But there's some ideas for you could even do it from a skateboard or, ah, a scooter. But just be careful when you do these things. Ah, pickup truck is good because you can film from the back Now. Another tip went Filming from any of these vehicles is to use a lens with ah, higher aperture or used a higher aperture. If you use something like F 1.4. It's gonna be harder to keep your subjects and focus while you're moving you something like F four. So it's easier to keep your subjects and focus and, uh, keep the camera ballots. Make sure that it's hard until I like to put on the green horizontal line to make sure that everything's lined up. And if you're camera hasn't used peaking, which tells you that you're still got your subjects in focus because it can be a little bit hard when the cameras, when the vehicles moving to, you know, keep your eyes on things. So by having peaking on it's a bit easier. See your and focus. So, yeah, hold it still horizontally. You slow motion and use peaking on your camera and have some fun. Tried different things. Film from the back from film from the side, and you can also film from the driver's perspective. The point of view. If you're filming from a car, you can sit in the middle and you just zooming so you just capture the view out of the windshield. Tell those steps help you for filming from a moving vehicle 16. Ronin S Motion Lapse: Hey there, in this video, we're gonna cover how to do a motion lops with your Ronan and your camera. So motion lapse is moving time Lots basically pretty unique shot because of the automated movement that the road and gives it and, uh, do that. Let's go over some of the basics. So first you need the Ronan connected to your mobile device and the running up because you're gonna be programming the path in there. Next, you're gonna want to set up time lapse in your camera. Now, I'm using the Panasonic Gauge five years, so it may be a little bit different to set that up on your camera. But here are some basics. I like to set it up in aperture priority mode, which is the A. And the reason why I do that is that I don't need to adjust the aperture. It does that automatically the computer set set up, and I like to set the focus to manual. Next, you can go into time lapse mode here in the Panasonic Gauge five and then set the shooting interval to at least two seconds. If the auction is a bit slower, you can set it to three or four seconds. But that's just me. And then I set my image shot count to a really high amount. Chances are that, uh, the time lapse image count is not gonna complete before the motion lops complete. So I have it at 20. 700. I'm just gonna do a four minute motion lapse here. So after you set it up, uh, just leave it now. We're gonna go over to the Roman up. So with the Ronan app connected, we're going to head over to create We're going to click motion laps. So the first thing we need to do is set up are two points, so you need at least two points. The first point is actually already highlighted its that camera icon. So go ahead and set your first position. I'm going to point to that wall and you can see on your app that it's smooth. That circle Knicks click the one to set up the next points. Okay. And I'm gonna set that on the other side and both go ahead and press the play button just to see what that movement looks like. Okay. Play it again so you can set up to five points. That can get a little bit complicated, I think. More complicated than you need, Teoh. And you can see here that my two points are set up almost on the same horizontal plane. Um, the second point is livid. Higher. So it just depends on what you want. What path you want to set up there. Okay, so I've got push mode on. You need that. If you want to use the joystick to set up the points and the interval, I just leave it two seconds. I don't have the cable connecting the road into the camera, So I think the only setting you need to concern yourself with is the content duration. So right now I have it set up a five, and this gives you a captured time of four minutes. So when you increase that, that's going Teoh, increase the capture time. Meaning the entire motion is gonna be a lot slower. So if you want a longer time lapse, just set it higher. Usually, I do mind time lapses these days in about 10 to 15 minutes. Okay, so I've set mine a content duration nine, and it's gonna do seven minute time lapse. Next, we need to start the time lapse on the camera, especially if you don't have the cable because they're basically functioning independently . The camera doesn't know that it's sitting on a gimbal or Ronan, so go ahead and make sure that you focused your camera lens because I manual and start taking that time lapse. Hit the shutter button. You can hear it kicking off, and now it's time the press, the circle on the app so that you can begin the motion. Okay, so you can monitor the progress on the app and ah, enough, that's 1% now. This is going to take quite long, so this is a good chance to have a coffee. Have the beer. I like to just set this up. You know what, a cafe or public spot in the location that I could enjoy a drink or coffee or aside my laptop. So not, you know, just sitting there doing nothing. That's the one thing I hate about doing emotional ups or time lapse. But the motion laps is a pretty cool technique. Definitely want Teoh. I recommend you added to your arsenal and practice setting up those points, this app can be a little bit finicky. I don't think it's the most intuitive, but as long as you can get your two endpoints and set your content duration, uh, you can pull off something pretty pretty nice. 17. Ronin Hyperlapse Full Edit: hi there, So we've learned a lot. We've learned a lot of techniques to film Amazing video with the Ronin and our cameras, and now it's time to pop those memory cards open on the camera. Put it in your computer on. We're gonna learn how toe video edits and my workflow for editing these videos in Adobe Premiere 2019. I'm going to try to keep it as applicable as possible because I do know there's other programs like Final Cut Pro Acts. There's I movie DaVinci. Resolve a whole lot of other programs. But to get started first, pop on your memory cards and just dump your footage to a folder, I'm just going to show you my folder over here. Let me just move it over from Window one to win no to. So when I dump my footage, I like to just have a Grand's folder called Raw Footage, and I'll created based on the destination, something that's meaningful to you and you can see at multiple locations here. So I'm just gonna choose one, because I've got a whole lot of footage and sometimes I'll just copy the folder that my camera creates just straight onto my hard drive and I'm using external hard drives. USB three hard drives These days, USB 34 terabytes of five terabytes are becoming more affordable. And the speed is, believe it or not, it's fast enough to edit four K videos with, Ah, good powerful computer. Amusing. The Huawei May book Pro X was 16 gigabytes of RAM and a dedicated graphics card. So once you've copied your stuff over, we're gonna open up Adobe Premiere over here. And, uh, the first thing you're gonna want to do is to import your footage over to the video editor . So you see, already have some footage here. But if you don't, let's just say you've got a blank slate here. Uh, you're gonna have your import window, which is highlighted over here, and you can just simply just import footage by double clicking and then find your footage and then select open the way I prefer to do it is just, ah, find it the footage in the folders and sometimes it's easier just to put it in a list for you. I like to do just the videos. Sometimes I take photos as well, so it's mixed up so I can just filter by by type. So highlight those MP fours or dot movies. Whichever format your camera crates, and then you can drag him over into your import window. Okay, We're gonna start with an easy one. Now, Tip is to create bins if you're using Adobe Premiere so you can just click there. So that's going to create a folder. And it just keeps things tidy because you'll end up with If you do multiple videos, you'll end up with, um pretty messy imports window. Alright, so I've got something prepared here. Then expand the timeline window so we don't have enough time to cover Adobe Premiere the editor itself. But, um, this basically this area here highlighted in blue this is the timeline. So this is the same as in final cut Pro X. You're going to need a timeline to edit the footage and, um, final cut. Pro X also has an import window, and you also have the ability to take a look at the properties off these files. So that's what we're gonna do here. So I'm just gonna expand this by pressing tilde, and it's good to get a glance at the video properties off your footage. So just because you shot video with the Ronan, one thing that we didn't get into is what type of video settings or frame rates that you're recording at. For example, you can record a HD ah 180 frames per second, which isn't it create smaller files, but it's gonna be really good for creating super super smooth, slow motion shots. Or, if you're doing stock footage like I do, you may be filming at four K 24 frames per second or ultra. Ultra HD also knows Ultra four K, which is 38 40 times 2160. So it's a lure quality four K, but you can film that at 60 frames per second. So because of all these different resolutions of frame rates, it's good to get an idea in your editor to see what these falls are because you can choose , you have to make a decision here. Are you going to create an HD video? Are going to create an ultra HD video or a four K full four K video, and if you create an HD video, then those four K clips that you bring in to the timeline are you're gonna need to adjust the scaling. Otherwise, there they may have cropped borders, and, um, yeah, that's not gonna look nice. Same thing is, if you create a four k project, but you have aged eclipse. Those clips are not gonna be Hi. Hi. Rez Enough. So they're not gonna have enough real estate to full up the windows. So you definitely want to be aware off what resolution you're filming and what frame rates . So I'm looking here at the files in this high prolapse, and because they're all most of them are 38 40 2160. Just those pavilion hyper lapse here is full four K 4096 2160. So I'm gonna create the project based on the majority. So 30 40 times 2160. So let's just minimize that. Okay? So in Adobe premiere, we can create a project by simply just right clicking on select new sequence from clip. Okay, I'm just going to because I'm working on dual screen here, but I'm recording on the screen. I just got a quickly change. My layer for single screen. Okay, Reset to save layout. All right. Okay, so we've got our first clip here, and, um, in Adobe Premiere. I like to play it back before I bring it in. So you can do that by just double clicking on the clip. And you can use i N o I is the start points and always an end point. So I just played back because this is a high prolapse where I wanna start and and the clip So I want to start here. I compress I and, oh, former endpoints Crips spring the point there press. Oh, okay. And you can do that before you bring in the video clip to the timeline. So let's do that with the next one here. We've got our civilian hyper lops. Okay, Some already work with these, and they have in in l points, so that should speed things up. Whoops. Okay, so now I'm gonna bring that into the timeline. So for those of you that are not familiar with W Premier in the timeline, there's different trucks trucks with the or for video trucks with a or for audio, and ah, V one is our primary video track. And then b two b three. I reserve for texts or B roll. Okay, so let's continue on and let's see here. No, I don't want that. Chung cuts, okay? Actually, I want this to start off the project. So that spring was clip in. So another way to bring in a clip is from this source window, you can simply just click and drag just the video onto the timeline. If I wanted the sound, I can click from the picture, and then I get an audio truck there. Okay, So I want to navigate to somewhere else because there's a clip that I want. Let's just find it one Neiman so you can You can use the search area b roll that There it is. Okay. I want this to be my second clip. So let's click on that beautiful motion lapse of Chiang Mai if you haven't made it there. Definitely recommended for visit. So let's drag that in. Keeping the clips that are from a destination together. Okay, You see, right away there that this clip is cropped. Let's hit the properties off this clip. Let's just find the properties properties, okay? This isn't HD clip, so we can try something because I really want to get this clip in, we can zoom in, and, um, hopefully, you know, it's still good enough to include in the video that looks like it's good enough. Normally, I wouldn't do this because my video projectors high resolution than my clip. So I'll just leave it in there for a short while. It's just really a nice, nice clip that I want include. And what just happened there? I think I deleted it. So controls that to undo. Okay, so it's just player product back. All right, so let's just put these together, okay? You can select snap in timeline, so it's easier for the clips to stick together. And let's go back to our folder here. Okay? The hyper laps folder. So you can just click there to find the clips. So let's ah, slept another one here. See him? Paragon. Okay, I'm not do that. So we're gonna bring that in. All right? Now, do we have one more clip that we can include? Yes, we do. We've got the Chinatown Club. Okay, so I just want include all the nightlight clips together. So I see Chinatown here. So another thing is, you can switch from Listsview, which is easy to see things like the resolution, the properties of the foul. And then you can go over toe icon view, which is a nice Icahn view where you can see the visuals. Sometimes it's easier to identify the clips when it's in icon view. And, um, yeah, that's the one I wanted Chinatown. Okay, so the drag that in and then we're gonna end with our Bangkok lit, and then this is gonna be the last clip here. All right, so we've got our clips in the timeline. Now it's time to play through by pressing the space bar to check things like, you know, like the playback speed. Do you need to trim it a bit more? I just want to keep this fairly high paced. Okay, so it's timeto put in our selector music track, so I downloaded some tracks last night groups. What is going on? You and I, Okay, lets is putting detail you there. Okay, so I got to music truck selected. Let's bring that in. Let's just play this Hang up. Maybe a little bit slow. Remember to save your projects from time to time. I know what primary does auto save, but it's just nicer. You save you save your your own project. I do find that a newbie primary does crash me quite a bit, especially with these hyper lapses. That's too slow. Okay, that's more like it. All right, so let's drive that clip in and let's see here. Okay, this clip is a bit slow, so I wanna just want to speed it up a bit. So right click on the clip. Speed duration 150%. Also, the music takes a while to get started. Something's gonna trim from a bit, so get straight to the beat right away. Okay? Sometimes it's cropped in a bit. Someone's gonna select scale, the frame size. No, that's fun. All right, so my plan is is to have this. Okay, I want to transition there. It's a bit rough, so I'm gonna go over to the effects I'm going to select across the in effect or even a push . Let's do cross, assume and then just place it in between the two clips. Okay? The red line means it's, you know, it's thinking it's rendering, so I'll just leave it alone for now. In the meantime, Let's dragged the rest of the clips over and I'll remove the audio track beneath it for could just mutes this entire truck. Okay, let's just play back, Okay? So, you know, it's nice suit. Trim your trucks to the rhythm of the beat and some just gonna trim that second clip and then let's just check. Let's check the transition from the second to the third clip. Okay, a bit rough. So let's let's get a maybe across the soul. That's your strident standard transition. How about something a little bit more dynamic? Maybe, uh, Iris Diamond. Play around experiment and see what works. Okay. All right. I want to see if this is cropped in scaled a frame size. I think the only clip I might need. Teoh. Focus on changing the skills. The pavilion hyper lumps. No. Hey, it's just this one that's cropped. Okay? The reason I keep doing that skill, the frame size I just want to check. That's not cropped in. But I think all these clips were the same size as the video project. Okay, so one mawr transition. I like to do transitions when there's a change of location or situation. Let's see what this looks like. Smooth. I like that. Okay, let's save. Okay, so that's That's a nice short woman and video. So let's just produced the volume of the music. Here. Let's go to all your truck mixer. Okay, So this thing, this truck here, some music, So I'm just gonna bring it down a bit. You can see over here minus six. Okay, let's go back to effects. So I want to Just because we're nearing the end, I just wanna do it, dip to black, and then I want to fade out the music, so I'm gonna go to cross Fades. No, don't be. Premier is a little bit hard to find effects, but you can use the search if you know the name, someone's gonna drag it in. There is. Okay, let's extend that fade out. All right? We're almost done. It's time to save the product again. All right. Next thing I want to do is what we call an adjustment layer. Adjustment layer is gonna allow me to color grade or change the colors for all the clips just to give it more of ah, you know, more of a custom, more prettier. Look, Okay, so we're gonna notice the adjustment layer is on V two. So it's the way that it works is that the higher the video truck is, it takes precedence. That's going to overlay. Let's highlight this adjustment layer. Let's just make sure there are no current settings. Okay. Looks like there isn't greats. So, for example, I can, like, dial up the saturation over here with the adjustment layer highlighted, I can select to hundreds, like, really exaggerate the colors, But no, we don't want that. I'm just gonna select on her and 20 and elect to use, You know, this is gonna apply to all the clips of my project. So we're not spending a long time in each individual clip. It will just take too long. Eso see, I'm just flipping around some of the different filters they have here. This one's nice. Something in the highlight double click on that. So what that means is, this adjustment layer is going. Apply that look to all the clips that are beneath it. Okay. If you want, you can go over to Central graphics and, um, strike it over, give it a title. Usually that happens at the beginning. I was gonna do something crazy here, so I'm gonna highlight it. Select tax title here. Let's expand the source window. It's a bit small. We don't need anything this window yet. Okay, so we've got our title in there now. On a change. Fought something a bit more custom T shirts. Okay, that's nice. Let's stall it up. Yeah, like that. You can change. The colors can add some shadows and etcetera. Okay. So because I'm sharing my full workflow, I'm gonna show you how I create my thumbnails. So for the YouTube thumbnails, if you're using Adobe Premiere, you can choose a frame that you like a ser like the sun flare. No, this is just for the screen capture. I like that. I like those sun flares. So I'm gonna just bring the title over there, and, um, I can click here to just export a clip. Hyper lapse mode. Okay, I'm gonna put the graphic back there. Okay? Now we can just expanding timeline just to take a Theo high high level overview. Okay? And that's that's are completed. Project the Knicks. Last thing we need to do is export the video, so let's go export media or control em on. Our goal here is to publish the video to YouTube. I mean, that's where everyone is thes days. Okay, so we're in the export settings here on leave it at age 264 I want a high quality four k video because this is four K I like to select. Use maximum render quality on. You can either select exports, which is going to use up all the resources to create this video. I like to select que, and that's going to send it over to another program. Media encoder, which will allow you to work on the computer, continue to work on your computer while this renders it in the background. And if you using final cut pro X, this would be actually final cut pro ax handles exports very well. There is the forget what is called the compressor. You can also batch files on there, but just for a single file on final cut pro X, you can just export and does a good job of pushing it to the background. But for Adobe premiere, I recommend exporting and queuing it up to the adobe encoder. Otherwise you won't be able Teoh, You're gonna have some lagging on your computer, and then we're gonna press play now. One last thing. If you do want to publish directly YouTube, let me see if I can get this export window up again. If you're using Adobe Premiere, you can actually do that at the same time. What shall do now? So you need to log on with you, You to Prudential's. And then, you know, you cannot either do this in you tube or in the swindle here. Hyper lumps, Thailand motion laps, Dej I thrown in Travel Malaysia. Uh, footage four k. Depends what your goal is. My goal is you know, I'm gonna post this and see who's interested in the course, so I should probably add some tags related to how to how to do high prolapse. So for people want to learn how to do these shots, they can click on. They could easily find this video through YouTube search. So anyways, I've covered a lot there. Sorry if I've died, Greste, but I wanted to give you a full workflow. So to recap. But we did is we imported the footage over to our import window in Dobie Premier. So what? Whatever program you're using you you're gonna need to import next. You need to the side on the resolution and frame rate of your project. So in most cases, HD, uh, 1920 by 10. 80 p 24 frames per second is the norm for cinematic high definition or for four K In this case, I just right clicked on on the ultra four K clip ultra HD four K clip, which was three day 40 times 2160 because that was majority. And um, yeah, After that, we selected the music. We laid down the trucks into the timeline. We worked on things. We So we selected the music. We put that down, we wanted a music that was the right pace. And we try to cut the clips. According to the beat, we had the clips in the right order. We inserted some transitions were necessary, and then we finish off with adjustment layer to ply color to the entire project. We added a title and boom, we exported it. So we'll be found this useful for learning how to edit. This is a basic project, but we can get more complicated. But ah, hope this gets you started Video editing your footage with the Ronan 18. Ronin S how to do hyperlapse: hi. In this video I want to cover. How do you do? Ah, hyper laps, hyper lapses and awesome technique. It's basically a fast moving time lapse where you're actually just walking with the camera while it's taking a time lapse. And if you're using a camera like the Panasonic GH five, you can actually build the time lapse while you're waiting right after you finish taking it , rather than taking that memory card taking all those photos and doing it in the video editor. So it's a really nice technique, and you don't need a GH five to do it. But the key thing to pulling off the high prolapse is you want to set your interval on your time lapse mode in your camera to one second. So cameras like the GH five or modern Marylise cameras. They already have a time lapse function built in, so just quickly show the settings in a second. But if you have an older camera like a DSLR, maybe you need what we call a interval. Almon er. It's like a remote control you plug in and then you need to basically just configure. How often are you taking the photos so it's do heart collapse. The key is you need to do it every one second. So once you've actually set that up, start taking the time lapse by clicking start or the shutter button. Whatever you need to do to get that started in the camera. As for the Ronan, you basically just hold it with two hands and just make sure that you're not moving the camera too much. I like to just walk with two hands just like this and do it for about at least 10 minutes. If you do it, Uh, less than 10 minutes, the hyper lapse is gonna be too short. Okay, so, um, I once do that. Just build the time lapse in the camera. If you have that ability or bring it to your video editor. Pretty simple but powerful technique that you can pull off with the road and s or any other gimble combined with your camera 19. Ronin S motion lapse advanced: Now that we've covered setting up a basic motion lapse, I'm going to show you how you can create mawr endpoints to set up your third point, you need to on highlights, uh, the icon. So if you see a blue icon just untapped that and you'll see the plus icon light up. So hit that and then use the joystick to set up your third point. So I'm going to just put that towards the ceiling, and then when you're done on, highlight its go ahead and press the play button just to play it through and you can see there. We have now added the third point. Uh, if you want to delete appoints, you can highlighted, and then the garbage bin will show up, and then you can delete that point. Uh, personally, I think this app is a little bit confusing. It's not as easy as does it look, So maybe that's just me. Um, so I just tried to keep it simple and set to end points, but at least we know how you can set up more than one if you need to. So, uh, yeah, that's the motion Laps. In a nutshell. A nice technique to have in your arsenal on my recommendation is if you do it, uh, nice to do it in the cafe or bar where you can actually enjoy coffee or beer while you're doing your motion laps. Just makes the time possible. A pastor. 20. New Ronin App motion lapse: one of the great techniques you can do with your Ronan s is emotion, laps and with the current version off the rodent up software, as of January 2020 the look and feel has changed. It's a bit more improved, so let's take a look at it. So we're gonna go to create time lapse. It's gonna complain if you don't have the focus wheel, but you don't really need it. The first thing you do is click the one you set your first waypoint. So after you click that you can use a virtual joystick, or what I prefer to do is use the actual joystick on the ronin just to set up where you want to start off your position. And then after you do that, you can tap the two and then set it in the second position, and you can hit the plus on the right hand side toe. Even at 1/3 way point, you can take a look at the angles there. If you're into that, you're more V precise person. And the interval, which is every two seconds and a duration nine minutes, is normally what I go with. And, uh, we'll give you an estimate The length of the clip number of photos. So here I am. I'm just setting the third way point. So I want to start from the right, go to left and then swing upwards because I was actually in a courtyard which had a tall building. So my goal was to start from the lower level, swing over to the left and then go up. But I did start the I did stop the time. That's a little bit early, but I think you got the idea for this technique. So then after you set the way points, you need to set up your camera. I like to put in Upshur priority and set it up in time lapse mode on your camera. You need to start the time lapse and on the road and happy need to press play so that their secret NYSE so that years taking photos at the same time that the Ronan is actually going along this path that you've set for it. And um, yeah, this is a really underrated technique that you can do with the road and because you can program it, I've tried to do it manually and it's just really hard to replicate what this machine is doing. It's moving the Ronan just ever so slightly every two seconds along this path. And ah, as you can see, the results are pretty good. Pretty impressive and hard to replicate unless you have something like a ronin. Or maybe you've got another type of gamble. So, yeah, that's the motion laps technique on the new version of their own and up give it a try. 21. Malaysia and Thailand hyperlapse and motion lapse: no way, - Yes ! 22. Ronin S High Tilt: OK in this video, I'm going to share my technique for filming really high towers or statues, which I recently did. So the first thing you want to do is tilt your camera up. I find it helps if you have a pan on a low setting, because while I'm pointing up, what I'll do is I'll start recording and then I'll do a slow pan like this. It was pretty nice. Another thing you could do. ISS. Take advantage off any objects or trees in the foreground so that you can focus on the tower or the object. But then you can have the trees in the foreground and then with your camera, tilts it up. Hold on the trigger on, then just walk slowly while you have your lens fix. Focus on object and you can just step backwards like this on. You can also experiment with filming ceilings. Just have it pointed straight up. Make sure you're pressing record and then just hold the joystick to the right or left 23. Ronin S Slow Pans and Tilts: this video, we're gonna cover some tips for how you can smooth out your pans and tilts. Maybe they're a little bit too fast, not reusable. So right now I'm on a profile where the pans and tilts their super fast. If you want to. Just the speed go over to control settings. We've clicked motion and the setting, you wonder, just is Max be so we tapped on medium. You've got three choices low, medium or high, so I'm going to high right now. You can see it's tilting pretty fast so we can adjust that too low. We can see. But it's very slow till now. For the lowest setting is actually something that I would actually use for stock footage is a lot more smoother. You can also go over to customize if you want to set in a specific number. So right now it's on 19 and you can just adjust that to whatever you want. So something like 12 to 20 would be a lot smoother. If you actually trying to do some B roll or stock footage, we can do the same thing for Penn right now. It's pretty fast now. We're just gonna change the speed from hi over low, okay? And set that back too high. Now the Dad band Just for your information, it's the delay from when you put input into the joystick and when the ruin and will react to that, I just leave it on the default. But you can experiment with that. The settings to control the speed and the smoothing are all in the motion area under the control settings. So again, just to recap, if you want something more usable, lot more smoother footage, you can change the speeds for a specific profile so that their lower something between 10 and 20 is what I would use, but you can adjust it according to your situation. 24. Ronin S Inception Roll: everyone in this video we're gonna cover. How do you do a roll with your Ronan s? So, with a balance, Ronan s on auto tune bonus organists press left or right on your joystick over here to roll your camera. This is a very popular video on YouTube. They call it the Inception shot. So to pull this off, we can actually go in a flashlight mode by putting down the road and horizontally and then just holding down on the joystick. Then you can do it in either direction. So I'm not sure how often I'm gonna use this shot. But it is good to know that you're a ronin is capable of doing this because it's impossible to do it hand held without it being shaky and jerky. So we're gonna cover How do we pull this off? So we need to go over to our app, and, uh, I recommend changing your user mode so you can do that on the road. And by pressing M, you can see the Green line here. It's currently on to, so you can set it up on 12 or three. So I just set lineup on two and If you want to go back to the normal mode, you might just set that as one or three. So for three, if I click on em, you can see that it's not rolling. No, it's patting superfast. I go to one. It's super slow and smooth good for filming. But if I go to two and goes back to the role, Okay, so now on your we're going to go over to configuration, assuming you already connected to your own in through Bluetooth and then at the top, you can change user 12 or three. So that's where you can configure your role to whatever profile you decide to. So to set this up on her up, we are going to click on control settings. Notice that I'm on the user to profile so you can decide if you wanna set this up on user 13 or two. And on Channel three, I'm going to tap on the blue texts, change that to roll, and then on Channel two, we're gonna do same thing where we're going to select an A and then channel one. We're gonna select any as well and then tap off on that's it on then on your joystick. You can He can then move the joystick too. Rolled over. Someone's not working there because Channel three set to on a so tap roll on tap off. All right. And a from there we go. So that's how you set up the roll on your Ronan. 25. Ronin S Orbit: venue. We're gonna cover the orbit shot or power locks, whatever you want to call it. This is a shot that you're gonna pull off if you've got something interesting in the middle that you want a circle also good for signage. When you see signage pointing the different directions is pretty cool to go around it. So to pull this off on our road enough, It's good to have a profile with a slow to medium pan or tilt. And we're gonna use the natural movements off the ruin. And we're not going to hold on to the joystick or the trigger. So we're just gonna make sure that we're focused on her objects and, uh, just going to use a regular frame rate 24 frames per second. Make sure you've got your exposure on Use your Peking to make sure you've got your object and focus on. Then we're gonna hit record. We're gonna hold the ronin like this two hands and then we're going to slowly just sidesteps so in a continuous motion. Okay? So just let them the road and turn naturally. It can also experiment by doing this in slow motion with the higher frame rate 60 frames per second or higher, or even something like 120 frames and try. Do some speed ramps, See what this looks like. That's how we can pull off the or been shot. 26. DJI RONIN S ACTIVETRACK TUTORIAL for course: a lot right today. You're gonna be testing out the new features available in de Girona. And it s not SC rodent s with the new firmware version two point something. I'll just put it on the screen with this new firm. A recon. Do things like active truck? You can do force mobile so you can actually control your run in with gestures on your smartphone. You can also do a automatic gimble 3 60 mode. So by tapping three times on the M button, you can access that mood almost instantly. There's also a portrait mode which you can access by pressing the M twice. And I'm also going to show you the process to get this set up. So you'll need to upgrade your form where where you connect your own into the DJ I. Ronan assistant software. You also need a way to connect your smartphone over to your camera. And then there's a whole new process off balancing. You're Ronan s to your smartphone sitting on top of your camera, so that's sort of the preview of what we're going to get into. So if you haven't already, you can download the de Girona an assistant software. Basically, it's a free download. You can go ahead and just install it for Mac or windows, and then you need to make sure you got your cable for your Ronan and then connected to your laptop and then simply just select the latest software and go ahead and download and reinstall that. So once you've installed it, that's all that you need to do. From there. You can disconnect the cable, and then you can just check that you've got the latest firmware by connecting using the rodent app on your smartphone. This is also a good chance to make sure you've got the latest software on your ronin app. We're smartphone. Make sure it's version two points dot dots. I'll just put the number on the video. Once you've got it on there, you can go through the APP and then check for some of the new features. Under create. You should see the act of track. You should also see some of the newer futures. I believe it's in the settings for the gimbal 3 60 modes as well as the portrait mode, and you can disable those asses well in the menu. - Next , we need to connect the smartphone on top of your camera somehow. So I've got a C adopter. Actually, it's a tripod for my smartphone, but using the clip for the smartphone and using a screw thread like a hot shoe with the's screw mounts for my H five recorder. Actually, it was actually designed to allow me to connect the age five recorder on top of the camera , so I just put together my own rig. You can also buy one from the DJ I store. It is a bit expensive. I believe it's 39 or 49 us just for an adapter, which I think is super expensive. You can then set your phone on top and ah, you need to make sure the smartphone camera is facing in the same direction as the lens because it's gonna be looking at you. Okay, so what? I was wondering, Do you need a cable to enable the actor track feature? The answer is no. You do not need a cable. You just need a Bluetooth connection and a connection to the Ronan using the rodent up on your smartphone. So for the act of track, you can simply just go into the Octu truck by going into the create menu. And then I did a couple of tests. Yeah, it's a little bit tricky to do it with one person. So what I did is I just put my hand there and, um, just got a sense of where the center off the frame on my smartphone Waas. And then I just quickly put my face where my hand waas and then with my other arm just tried to reach and try to draw a box in the middle of my phone on. That seemed to do the trick. As you can see in the test, the actor track works pretty well, and I'm looking forward to doing some more videos with this feature because this is the feature that I was looking for. You know, if you're doing a talking head video and you wanna pace around, walk around. I was actually thinking off programming the motion laps to continuously go left and right. But this actor track is way more useful, so yeah, that's the act of track feature now available for the Ronan Hope. You found this helpful, and the next feature going to cover is the new portrait and 3 60 mode with this new version two point X software 27. DJI RONIN HOW TO DO FORCE MOBILE: What's up, everyone? We're gonna show you how we can set up the force mobile on the road and s make sure that you've got the latest firm where I'm using the from where from January 2020. And you want to make sure that you've connected to your own in and its balance and mounted . So I just want to show you the app screen, and then we're gonna go on to actually test it. So first thing want to do is to do a balance test. So I've got my smartphone mounted onto a tripod with moveable head. So let's just do the balance test first. You can see it's in the background. The rodent is just doing its balance test. And the reason why I have a smartphone on this tripod is so I can really make use off the features enforce mobile. So let's just see what the results are. Excellent for Penn Roland, tilt. Okay. And then next you want to do is to click on motor parameters and click auto tune. Okay, we can see that the Roman is having a good shake the road in his auto tuning. Okay, So auto tune is finished. So next me we need to do is to go over to create and select force, Momo. Okay, so I'll just show you a few controls over on the screen. So we've got role tilt and pan. Oh, Pekan. See that? Because it is sitting horizontally on the tripod. But basically, these are the values for pan tilt. Unroll the speed and to enable the force mobile, you have to hit that button there. Okay, so we have different values here. So, for example, we have a high value on tilt and which is 64 the pen is 28. So on my tripod, I'm just going to start tilting up and down. And as you can see, the Roman is tilting. Okay, Sam, seem thing. Let's just style them the value for tilt, and then increase the pen. And let's try that out. Okay? If we want to be extremely can change it to a super high value, you can see the movement is more pronounced. Okay? And then for tilts again, you can see a tilting. Okay. And lastly, we can change the role value which is set to zero. So if I change it to to say 53 If I a pan writes, it rolls right by pan left, it rolls left. And if I tilt down, it tilts down so it gets a little complex. You can do some complex movements just going to hit the re center celebra springs. It backs to its position, the other settings and you can just is smoothing. So you could just make everything a little bit smoother. I've just set everything to about 13. 14 11 across the board. So let's just change up the camera angles and let's see what some of this footage looks like. Do some tests here. So we're testing the rollout. Okay, I'm not doing anything too crazy because I got the screen flipped out. So let me just remove the role, and you can see that it's not rolling anymore. When I pan, let's just re center it. Okay, so I've got the tilt on, so I'm gonna just tilts up and down. Okay, Let me increase the pound value to 46. Okay, so this is a nice way to remote control the ronin. So it just allows you to get a lot more control. Can you think of applications that this would be useful for Maybe if you had the ronin set up in a designated spot and you wanted Mawr granular control because having access to this tripod here gives you some really more precise movements, and you don't need to actually be where the ronin is, because this is all being controlled through the up, which is pretty cool. So let's just re center that So again, that's the force mobile feature for the de Girona in ah, pretty good addition to the ronin with the new firmware or January 2020. 28. Dji gimbal portrait AND 360: so if you haven't already, you can download the de Girona, an assistant software. Basically, it's a free download. You can go ahead and just install it for Mac or windows, and then you need to make sure you got your cable for your Ronan and then connected to your laptop and then simply just select the latest software and go ahead and download and reinstall that. So once you've installed it, that's all that you need to do. From there. You can disconnect the cable, and then you can just check that you've got the latest firmware by connecting using the rodent app on your smartphone. This is also a good chance to make sure you've got the latest software on your Ronan app. We're smartphone. Make sure it's version two points dot thoughts. I'll just put the number on the video way. Once you've got it on there, you can go through the APP and then check for some of the near features Under create. You should see the act of track. You should also see some of the newer features. I believe it's in the settings for the gimbal 3 60 mode, as well as the portrait mode, and you can disable those as well in the menu. - Okay , so we'll quickly cover the new portrait feature. So by the fault with the new firmware, all you need to do is tap the M twice very quickly and you can see just basically puts her camera in side view so you can capture photos or videos that are in the aspect ratio required for some social media platforms like Instagram TV, which is nine by 16. And you just tap them twice again to return the normal load. Now, if you need to test all the 3 60 mood, the instant 3 60 inception roll mode, top the M three times but put it in a flashlight mode first. And once you do, you could just hold down left or right on the joystick, too, to let it roll. Now have to get it back to normal. Just tap the M three times to return back to normal. Simple is that great new features added to the D Jeroen eso Thank you, D J I. And that's my coverage off the new firmware. I hope you get a chest tried out as well and hope this tutorial helps If you like this. Video police like a subscribe. If you want to see Mawr video tech tutorial content, see later. 29. Ronin s with a gaming controller course: Hey everyone, my name is Greg Kang. If you're not familiar with me, I do videos on gimble filmmaking, a lot of content creation. Today we're gonna be learning how we can use a PlayStation four wireless controller or an Xbox wireless controller that connects to your Bluetooth phone and allows you to control your DJI, Ronin Gimbal. I'm not sure if PS five controllers are supported, but we're going to cover this using a PS4 third party controller. And I'll put a link below that is an affiliate link. If you do decide to purchase it, I purchased it and I get a small commission and exchange, so thank you in advance. So let's get started. So first off, make sure your controller is connected to your smartphone. So you can just go to whichever phone that you have go to the Bluetooth features and then just added as another device. Now with this particular controller, I'll just put it up close here. You can hold the middle. Alright, my row, Ronen is acting along Kino. Go back. Alright. So this controller, we can press the Home button and this button at the same time, they put it in Bluetooth pairing mode. So those two buttons right there. And after you've heard it the first time, you don't need to do that every time you just need to hold down on the home button. And the blue light will stay on. So that means that's connected to your phone. You will need the DJI Ronan app, which is free. And I'm just going to tell you the version that I have. But there is the latest version, 2.3, I have to point to 0.1.10. So once you're at your app, you need to click on Create and then you'll click gaming controller. Alright, so we're gonna click Create. And then we're going to tap gaming controller on the bottom there. Okay, so you can see all the controls are mapped out. In order to use the photo and video mode, you will need the cable, which I don't just pointing that out, but all the other controls like changing the profile, padding and tilting. You can use that with your controller. Alright, so take a look at the buttons over there. We're just going to cover some of the functions that you can use. So if we want to pan and tilt, we use this button. So it's panning right now. And we go up and down the tilt. If we want our role, we can use the right stick. Okay. If we wanted to recenter it, we click on the bottom button. Okay. And if you want to switch profile, we can use the top button if you're using a PS4 controller so that you may not be able to see that there, but that's changing the profile from one to two to three. I'll just show you my phone. It's giving us a confirmation screen. When I do that. And then when I tried to do photo or video, it's going to complain about the cable. So that's what that message looks like. Alright, so lastly, what can we use this feature for? What's, what's the point of it? Well, I think by using the video game controller, you get really precise movement and control of the Gimbal and you don't need to be standing right by the Ronin. So maybe if for product shoot and might be really helpful, let's just say we were doing a video on this keyboard. Let's just take that text away. Or even a video shoot on the phone. You can get really precise movements. Just, just look at how we can control the movement of, of the Ronen with our joystick rather than using this little nipple on the road. And so, yeah, it's a nice feature that they have allowing us to use our Xbox or PS4 controller to control the Ronin. 30. Active Track Demo - Retention Rate: What's up, guys? It's Greg Hung here. And in this video, I'm gonna talk about different ways and video techniques we can use to help keep our attention rate in our videos. So I've been experimenting with the act of track technology with Ronan s, not SC. Ronan s just today updated. The firmware got a custom rig to put my smartphone on top off my GH five. And now I'm recording with active track on. You can see it's following me and it's a really good way, Teoh keep things dynamic. I think I actually like talking while walking so talking while walking with the road Mike connected to my iPad got links below on this microphone here. So this is nice. He gives me a bit more freedom to walk around with. Talking keeps the blood flowing, and I'm also recording this in four K video resolution. So I've got that extra riel state to crop in and crop out which a lot of YouTubers are doing in their videos. So you've got ah different look so you can cropping crop out as well as have some dynamic video going. So I'm going to see if I can keep walking and talking while the after truck follows me. So it's hard to do this with one person. So actually set the phone up and everything. And then I had someone help me just frame the box around my face of also tested walking away, going to the toilet and coming back to see if the APP remembers my face and it does. So that's really good, especially if you just want to set it up once and you have a solo set up. Active truck technology from de Girona in is really good. If you want some help tutorials on setting this up, then check out some my videos because right now there isn't a lot of good tutorials on it. Exciting tutorials. So let me help you get set up a swell. And with this technology, I'm really excited to keep my Ronan because I think it's just more exciting talking like this. I think you can really keep your audience if you try a different techniques and people are getting a bit warn of old videos where you're just talking on a tripod. So let me know if you think this technique is useful is a too distracting. Can you use it in your videos to help improve your attention rate or just have something off more of a different look? 31. Sigma 18 35 low light test in 4k on Ronin Sample Footage: Hey, welcome to Vancouver. So I'm testing the sigma at 1835 for Cannon. Again on my Panasonic x5 with a Ronan S to tests a couple things to low-light performance, which you could see now. And also, how does it actually look like when they're shooting pretty wide, right? We're going to shoot a variety of shots to put this test to its limits. Were going to shoot high per lapses were shooting on the Panasonic H5 with the sigma to 1835, F1 0.8 with the build trucks EFM T2 adapter for canon, which according to my calculations, is about equivalent to 20.45 millimeters at the wide end. And you can get down to an aperture 1.2 with this lens adopter. Please note that we are shooting in for k and the sigma lends itself doesn't have stabilization, but the Panasonic GH five body does. And the Ronin should help a little bit. But when I'm walking forward, there is a little bit of bounce. And I also found out on the second day that there is an adjustment I needed to make on the build trucks, which included turning the glass clockwise so I could get sharper focus when the sigma lens was at its widest. We're talking 18 millimeter and which was a little bit soft on day one. After sharing some photos on the Panasonic GH five group, one of the members sent me this video that's suggested to cure the soft wide images on this setup. To take off the veil trucks, EFM to adopter and turn the glass clockwise. That actually worked. And on day two, I'm shooting handheld, stole shooting 4K. But you'll see a lot more wider shots that are sharper. So let me know what you think. I think we even got up to ISO 4 thousand at f 1.2 and we still get very clean images in the lowest of low light. Yeah. To finish off the last part, I shoot a variety of footage, ignores some food footage, some footage of me at my home office doing an online course to get a feel for what it looks like with control conditions with some additional lighting. And I have to say overall, I'm very happy with the versatility of this lens that has a very clean and sharp image. Very good broke. But this lens is pretty big, especially when I attach it to my Ronan S gimble at rarely has enough clearance and the lens is pretty heavy. For the price, I think you get a lot of versatility with this lens and it doubles as a very good lens to shoot in wide situations. And you can shoot him very low lights compensating for the GH five micro, four-thirds small sensor. So let me know in the comments below what you think about this legendary setup, the GH five with the sigma 1835 shooting for k in low light and a variety of conditions. If you liked this video, please be sure to give it a like and subscribe and check out some of my other GH five videos and all my online course on filming with the Panasonic x5 and my Gimbal filmmaking course. Thanks for watching. Bye. Hi, my name is Greg Kang. I'm a Canadian travel videographer. Some of you may know me from my aerial video courses or stock, but its courses or my living guides. This course is all about the Panasonic GH five. This is the revolutionary 4K mirrorless Four Thirds camera. And I made this course, or people that are new to 4K mirrorless cameras that want to learn how to do effective video. Or people that are coming from the SLR Canon camera world that got into video and now wanted to transition into a 4K mirrorless camera. I went to remove the barriers so that you can use this camera effectively, create great video, and learn how to unlock its full potential. I'm going to cover some of the photography features, but mainly focus on the video features, studio setups, and entire workflow for how we can use the footage from this camera to actually make things like talking cat videos or footage that we can use or stock footage agencies. I hope you enjoy this course, check out the free lessons and hope to see you in there. 32. Ronin S Summary: thanks for taking the gimbal filmmaking course. I hope you learned to lock from the different Gimbels that we've covered in this course. We hope that it's very thorough. Ah, like most different tools that are available Teoh creators these days, um, you know, they do give you an advantage on dumb. You know, there's a trade off for everything. And I think the big tradeoff for using this is that it's really heavy, especially. You're gonna take it out all day and you're traveling. It's kind of a chore to take this with you and ah, right now, the solutions to pack this up are pretty heavy. Um, you can fit it in a backpack, but I worry that some of the gimbal parts are vulnerable. Eso for now, the packing solutions are not the best s O. That would be the trade off. Um, I learned how to use these in conjunction with the tripod. Um, if you do need that extra heights, you can take advantage of the automation if you're gonna be doing some self talking videos and you want more movement, but yeah, these air great additions to compliment me. Airless cameras for stock footage So I recommend that you look into that lesson where you can learn how to monetize on that type of footage. Also great for events. Having one of these things definitely adds to your credibility and does look a lot more legit. If you're holding this, you definitely stand out as a filmmaker rather than someone with a DSLR that looks like you might be a photographer. Uh, my experience I've gotten stopped a few times just for filming in public because this does get a lot more attention. Eso be aware of that. Ah, but if you're filming events or weddings, this will definitely at your credibility. So good choice if you got one of these and, yeah, very happy with the deejay rodent. It is an investment in your film making. Um, yeah, I know what your purpose is. Why are you getting this thing? Is it for stock footage is for events. Make sure it's the right fit for you. Maybe you don't need something of this. Maybe it's, um, Gimble for your smartphone. So I hope you enjoyed this course. And remember, things is only one part off creating. There's audio. There's video with drones. There's a different application or purpose for different types of gear. And this is certainly going to give you a lot more freedom to walk around to run around with the camera to get new types of shots. So have some fun. And thanks for taking the course. If you're interested in following me, please check off my YouTube channel. It's called Sheikh, and, uh, you can follow me on my website at Sheikh Biogas Production. LA Com Thanks for taking the course, child. 33. Osmo mobile intro: So I hope you enjoyed the hospital section of this course. Now I want to introduce you to another flavor off Osmo. Also mobile and German documentary filmmaker. Yes, Go. I think this is a good fit. If you have a good smartphone on this comes in at a more affordable price point on it has your features that yes, he was gonna talk about. So here you have it. The DJ i, Osmo Mobile and I from using it No for a few months, and I'm really happy with it for my documentary projects. Love portable it is I just used with my smartphone because, as you could see, it doesn't have its own camera. So everything record comes through a smartphone and is recorded onto the smartphone And what that means, of course, that I depend on the quality off my smartphone's camera. But the iPhone, as he that I used yet does a pretty good job on most smartphones these days. Also comparable to the quality off the DJ eyes. Also, most camera No, it does have some more Kool or extra features, one of them being the face tracking function. And that means that you can selected person's face through the APP, and then the gimbal will follow that person automatically, which is especially cool for video bloggers. On top of that, it can do motion time lapses where you attach it to a tri party, select a certain amount of time, and then the gimbal also will move as it takes pictures. And that produces really cool results, which would also see more about in the next sections. So it's well worth it, so stay tuned. 34. Dji osmo mobile tour: So this is the main screen off the Geico app, and first thing you want to do is have a look at the settings, which is the wheel in the right hand corner. So here you have several options, and I have already previous lesson showed you about the gimble and especially the just pick menu, where you can change speed off your pans and you can invert your joystick controls as well . So does that options down here in the joystick. Then under calibrate, you have calibration options, so this make sure that your phone is really well balanced. So for that his presence that collaboration, which I want to know because it takes about a minute to execute, then well, can you. Do you have the camera option where you can change your video resolution and Panorama quoted you, You can sit, he quoted the level then. General, there's nothing really that interesting here, just some turn settings. And here, if you do like to do life video while you can do that through this app as well, it's in this option on, and that's a voted when it comes to setting up your gimble. So I'm going to show, You know, the basic filming functions with this app, although I'm not that happy with it. When it comes to basic filming, there's a different alike, which is called Firming Pro. And there's another lesson just about this app. But well, just in case you do want a general filming with this M brought here the Goa up. It's very simple. And the nice thing is, you can use the red button on them as a Muslim mobile. So why you do have the red button right here? And I just pressed that now to start filming, I might as well press the button on the mobile itself to stop recording or start recording again. Then you have the yellow circle, which you use to change exposure. And if you press it, you know, circuit again, you can change it to the active trekking option. That's the Green Square, which you've seen any other lesson. You can change your camera back and forth. That's on this button. Hi. Here I am, and I'm gonna change back on. And what else can I do? I can excess here under the normal option. The different special finning options. Okay, so accidentally activated the active track in years. It wasn't what I wanted, so this is really quite option, which is the motion time lapse, and we will get into that more in more detail in a different lesson. But you can access those special firming options by pressing this film role icon that says normal on it. And you can also change from filming mode to picture mode that's in the upper left corner. So I just sluts lit up, and I know I could do photos instead of filming and also have, instead of the role item icon, I have Panorama I can so I can do my panorama pictures, which is re nice because, of course, you're very well balanced with your gimble se. It works well for Panorama pictures. And so these are the basics functions with the for the G. I go up if you have any more questions about it just posted in the comment function. Other than that, yeah, discovers it and see you in the next listen 35. Osmo advanced techniques 2B: cover some of the bats techniques you could do with Dijon Osmo. Now keep in mind that a lot of the footage I film is for stock footage, so I might do some shots from mortar by or from a car. I'm trying to get cinematic shots that might be included as part of a commercial or maybe even a movie. So the first thing that it cover is the ninja walk technique, which a lot of YouTubers talk about. But I'll cover anyways. So to do that, you wanna hold the also horizontally double tap on the joystick just so it's facing straits . And then you can hold your smartphone on the arm just to give it some extra stability. It's a court, and then when I'm walking, I'm trying to keep it stable and take slow steps and try not to bounce around and just use my knee sufficient. My walk So the steel backwards walk here. So next technique, when it cover is sky. So sky plan. You can tilt the camera up, or you could even do this tilting down. I like to do it when I'm filming food, just to give a different angle. But the sky pan You can film it up the sky and get some nice shots If there's some cool lighting on the ceiling or moon So it just points it up And then on the joystick I'm just gonna turn around so you can see Just hold the joystick But you don't want to do it too fast You can adjust the settings on the gimbal So it goes really slow I was hit record so I could do Nice 3 60 Skype Ah, The next technique we're gonna cover is recall the rising crane shots. I like Teoh. Use this one if I'm walking, but I also wanna upwards moving shots. So to do this I put it in the same position as the flashlight technique. But while the cameras rising, I'm gonna use this joystick by holding down on it as I'm coming up so the camera will lock onto the target. Sometimes if you just going upwards motion, the camera will point straight up. But I want to walk it in. So what I'll do is move forward and then went spot here, press down on the joysticks, locks onto the target, so do this again. But now hoarse. So if you're in the starting position and the cameras not police straight, you can just double tap to make sure it straight. And then you can take slow steps. And now to make it go up and then hold on to the joystick. Okay? And you can also do this from top to bottom. Downward screenshots. So going down. No holding down the joystick so it stays on target. Yes. Go. Okay, so that brings me to the next. So this is a little Agnes stop or worm's eye view. Take advantage off. So you hold the stick this double. So you get awesome straight. Sometimes the camera eventually upside down always. Okay, Right now. So now, facing a straight Teoh course. So you see here nice and you can even do the rising crane technique by falling on the joystick to go from a worm's eye view. Teoh Regular. Those are some That's techniques. Talk about shooting at nice. So I like to shoot night finish for stock, and I'll talk about some of the specific video settings I like to do. I find that it's always better to do manual if you have some time But if you're in a rush and your with friends and you don't keep people waiting, you can always put your videos things on auto, and then you can tap to adjust the exposure. But if you're filming at night and you have some time, I like to set it on manual. Usually I'll set it the eso between 800 to 1600 I find if you go up to 3200 it's a little bit too noisy for stock agencies to accept. So ideally, want aimed for isil 1600 shutter speed 50 and electric filament four K 24 friends for second. And you can also look at the exposure it will tell you, plus two minus two. You want to get as close as you can to zero. Now, if you're new to manual settings and you want to guideline, you can set it to auto on. And if you look at the top will give you the I. So on the shutter speed that the computer of the software calculated, and then you can go see manual by clicking em, and then you can find to know settings so that they're closer to what you actually want another tool like to use if I'm filming at night? Is this led light over here? So what I'll do is I'll hold it on a stick hair on. And this light here will give me a little bit extra lining. So I don't need to turn up the eso as high also give performing at bars or parties and night time. So this led stick is pretty useful. My last technique is if you're filling in a car I've found while I was traveling in different countries and uber's, I found that sometimes you get really good, would it or good views from the car. But I was sitting in the wrong seat. I was sitting at the fronts and usually the best you might be from the back seat. So what you could do with your Osmo is it can turn it on and you can connect it Teoh device . It doesn't have to be in this arm. You can connect it Teoh iPad. And once you have connected, you can actually give the osmo to someone else. The holes. But you can control the Oz most camera using remote controls. So if I waas Teoh, give this husband of someone else. I could use remote control to have complete control the cameras. So someone else is just holding this to be my human tripod. So this is useful if you're getting someone to take a photo of you and your friends at a restaurant and they don't have any knowledge of how to take photos or if you're in a car, you need to have this to your mom or your dad. You have no idea what to do. So they're just holding the camp before you and you have complete control from your mobile device. So I hope some of those best techniques will give you some ideas. Get some great shots from your hospital. I think there's a lot more different shots can use. You're only limited by your creativity and some knowledge of how to use awesome to its full potential. 36. OSMO MOBILE IMPROVING SOUND: US food makers know how important it is to record rate sound. And you have figured out by now that with a smartphone usually doesn't go so well, especially if the person talking is rather far away from a smartphone. So if you wanna get decent sounds in your project, you need to get an external mike. And in this case, I'm using the Road Video Micro, which is a solid mike. It's not one of the most expensive best ones, but it does. A good job costs around $60 and already would enhance your sound significantly. Comes with a debt head if you want to shoot outside to reduce wind noise, and there's an additional cable that you need, and it does not come with this microphone. And what this cable does is that in a buses microphone to work with your smartphone because generally extend microphones are not made to work with smartphones. So this is really handing important cable, which works with other microphones as well. And we'll put a link to this cable of the microphone in the pdf of this lesson. So to attention. No, this microphone. I'm also attaching the cable on then this cause systems phone. So don't Here is the microphone, Jack Justice. And no, it's the microphone is attached and I can start filming using the six turn of song. And as I've shown you before, this arms would be helpful because now you can attach the microphone to Europe Smartphone arm Right here. There's a hot shoe, but I can used to screw his own. And now you have a set up right here to record your son's extending onto your smartphone. No, I'm going to show you the active tracking function that you find within the DJ Geico app. Make sure that you're down at the left corner. You don't have the yellow circle. You want the Green square. 37. Osmo mobile ninja walk: Why the awesome or what doesn't? Really great job stabilizing. You still need to be careful when you walk, not make your steps too strong. Because otherwise the fortress is show that somebody was walking. What food? You need to make sure that your steps are really flat as you work. So you could call this a ninja water. I'm gonna show you what that looked like. So just make sure that stayed the same pace Waas. And then that way the steps will look so 38. Osmo mobile filmic pro: So now I'm going to give you a basic introduction into filmic pro, which works well together with the Osma marble. In fact, it developed was a filmic pro, incorporated some of the settings for the ultimate mobile into the APP. So we're really happy with what they've done. And in fact, this is the app that many professional videographers use window from of their iPhones. And that's because they have a lot of additional settings that gives you much more space in your creative goals. And I will show you that by starting with the settings right here and there's a hardware sitting on you and I activated. All right here the DJ I also in mobile and what happens is so if you activate it, that's the menu coming up. Press on Osmo. And now you can also use your joystick with this so you don't you don't need the Jaco app and I'm no using joystick, and I can also do the the red recording button down there. And on top of that, I can even change exposure with my joystick. So it's really powerful, but I still prefer to use did exposure within filmic pro just you in quick idea ho, that works. I press that the square, the circle and I can change my eye. So he s on this case. We had a bit too much light so I can change that here and then If it's the circuits red, it means the exposure is locked. And with the square, I can change the focus. So notice on this but in front and then you wanted to be at the glass in the back, then this works by putting the square there and I can see how the focus has changed. And I also have the option to change not only my resolution up to four K, but it can also change the bit rate, as you can see here. And I can change all kinds of difference ratio such s for 23 or white screen. And so that's really cool for our cinematic projects. The active trekking does not work. However, I'm already in contact with them about future developments, and I know that they're really busy and improving their a lot. So I wouldn't be surprised very soon that even if the active champion trekking within this at 39. Osmo mobile orbit: So let me show you another filming technique that you can do really well. Your asthma mobile and that's circling around object or person. That's kind, agree, cool and cinematic. And the awesome does a great job actually handing that by itself. So ever walk around right now, then without me doing any further controlling the gamble just follows him. So there's nothing I don't have no face tracking or joystick just works completely automatically on. Yeah, I can see it is very small and like an inspiration for you. If you're looking for different ways to film your subjects. No. Yes. Interesting to think about if you even ever want to use the joystick or not. Andi, I have found, like the more affirm the lesson needed drastic because you can just get more precise movements if you don't use it. But it's really up to you. And I were just suggesting experiments with both ways because I mean, I could just show, you know, another round, and now I'm going. So use now the joystick. I could do faster way, but as you can see now, I'm losing him because I went too fast and then so so No, no, we lost him. And so that's the stuff that can happen if you use the joystick so it takes more practice to make a record. Well, what? It's just up to you if you want to use it or not. 40. Osmo mobile timelapsec: So now I'm gonna show you the motion time lapse function. Make sure that the video motors enabled press on the camera button and go down here. The motion time lapse. Press that now you want to set at least two points so that the camera knows from where to where to go. So let's say we want to start here. Just gonna press plus move it to another position purse plus again. And no, the camera knows these are the points for it to move. No, I want it. Check the interval off photos that will be shot. So let's say I'm gonna choose one second here and I want us to go for 30 seconds. Usually I would do it much longer, but in this case, just to show you that how the gimbal remover would go with that I'm gonna per start. So, no, I would go to the first point that I selected another gumbo removed to the second point where taking pictures in a second interval. So as you can see, motion timeless can produce really cool results and convert where for you two blocks on any kind of traveling videos and on top of that it's very easily shareable right through this app so you can post it directly to instagram, YouTube or Facebook. So I really encourage you to to play with this function if you got the Osma model. 41. Setup and connect osmo mobile: No. Let me show you how to connect your smartphone with the mobile. Make sure that enable Bluetooth. And that's the same for both Android iPhone or any other smartphone. And then you started teaching. I go at No, it's time to screw your iPhone into your mobile, which looks like this. So no, you just press this button down here, hold it, and already you can see that stabilization. It's working the gimbals working. So that's exactly what you're looking for. And then, no, if you want to use the go out for us connected device, but that's not necessary. You could just use the basic camera. Like in this case, this is just a basic up, and already you have a major Frank since working. You can use here the dress take to do your plans, and still, it's so that's how easy it is to set it up. And in the next lesson that would show you exactly holiday. The each. I go up works and with special features working there, but you don't even need it to fill on. That's it. That's already your mobile set up and move on to the next lesson 42. Osmo summary 2: I. Congratulations on finishing the course. I hope you enjoyed the hospital on all school Mobile course. When I first started the course, I was focusing on Osmo, and as I finished the creators guide, I found out more about DJ I line up and also mobile. So for the hospital, I think it's a great fits if you have a smartphone that doesn't shoot four K video and doesn't have as good of a camera. But keep in mind that a lot of the cameras available 2017 and last year are improving a lot that can shoot four K video for the awesome Oh, I'm gonna use it a lot for Stop British. And I think if you upgrade the microphone to the road video micro, it becomes a really good camera or blogging or even if you want to do talking head videos. If you're gonna full in daylights for stock footage, I recommend getting filters or the Oslo. I found that a lot of the times I wasn't getting the ideal sittings, especially or cinematic video, because it doesn't allow you to change the aperture. So that being said, there is an upgrade path to the Oslo. You can operate the camera to what we call the X five camera. So that will completely replace this camera with a camera that allows you mawr dynamic range. You can change the aperture, and that's something I'm gonna think about is well, you can also use that same camera on the inspire one grown. So definitely something Teoh Think about. If you want to take your learning a step further and you want to monetize the footage you're creating with your Osmo, I'm gonna refer you to my stock footage. School Phantom three dot teachable about calm. And that's how I monetize a lot of my footage on the Internet. And I think it's a great way for filming a lot off grade four K footage. Teoh make a good side income. So with that being said and handed over to yes, go to wrap up all small mobile. Yeah, thanks, Break. I always really enjoy seeing how you handle your also moment for Katie stuff that you do with it. It's inspiring to see Yeah, I could make a set income with stock footage because this is not something that I haven't done yet because after mostly travel videos. And that's why they also have chosen the mobile. Because I'm happy with the quality of my smartphone. And also like, well, that I saved when I buy this device, because I'm not buying the extra camera that you get with the Cosmo. So I paid $300 for this and Rapid probably paid around twice as much when you bought it. So you can save some money here when you if you just your mobile and you might want to use this money to say later on two stood, invest in a decent are because, of course, these are office you a lot of options that you don't get when filming with the Baltimore over the smartphone, and that doesn't mean that then you would change the two. These are because these two devices and, well, my preferred choice of mobile. They give you some extra features that you do not get. These are, and especially the mobility, because others set up so easily and quickly that you just can't start going much easier. And you don't need to worry so much about how to get stable. That shed charts because, after all, you have a gimbal right here. And it's easier to get the staff live shots, which barking these are will not give you so easily. So you might even want toe have both types of devices they put four year and then depending on what kind off film projects have you choose, which once would see better? I mean, especially, you know, I can light it issue with the mobile. I could just quickly grab just nine my device when I go somewhere quickly. I don't need to worry about try put, for example, because I could just hold it like this, and it doesn't have a stability which gets really, really close to the stability of trifle. But of course, we created this course for you to really get an idea about these two devices. So you haven't purchased any of that yet? No. You know, really hold it worked with the differences are And we hope this is enough for you to make a decision. And well, if you already on one of them, then of course, you know, all the questions about the were dancing in case anything is left that you still want to know or hear from us. just drop us. The notes write in the comments section will be happy to answer your questions or creates for the videos in the future. And yes, you also have a blogger. Then I hope we will see chart on the road. Thanks. Yes, I just wanted to add how both of these cameras are so social media friendly. A lot of the great videos and time lapse of you create are stored on your phone so they're ready to share on social media like Instagram or Facebook right away. Just the other day, I was foaming emotion, time lapse with the also mobile on a surprise that I could actually use up on my Facebook cool fall. And I think that's a speed advantage, especially if you're longer. I think also mobile is specifically designed for the bloggers. So I think it's a great bits on. Take advantage of that speed that these cameras are gonna give you to share more stable footage with 43. Stock Footage Masterclass Intro 2018: Hi, My name is Greg Hung.

What is stock footage : Hey, guys, My name is Greg Hung, um, a digital nomad and video creator. And today I'm gonna tell you what stock footage is. So stock footage is a business model that allows you to license your videos over the Internet marketplace. Some of you know what stock photos are on. That's if you had a project or you had a business and you needed to get a photo that you could use on your website or for your school project. Now videos have used a similar business model, but you're using video footage, and because of that, you can shoot 10. The 15 2nd video clip, normally in high definition on nowadays, even four K and you can license those videos so you can upload those video clips. He were them, tag them so that business or director media company can search for a particular video clip , and if they like it, they can purchase and download it. But the terminology that we used in the stock footage world is called licensing, and the beauty of licensing is more than one customer can license your video clips and a stock footage videographer. You can also license your video clip on more than one agency. So, uh, in a nutshell, there are a lot of benefits. If you want to begin a career in stock footage videography, you get Teoh, do what you love. You can do it from anywhere. But I'm jumping a little bit into the pros of cons off stock footage. But that's stock footage in a nutshell, on the hope that demystifies any questions that you had. 45. What to shoot: when you're looking for ideas of what you can shoot for. Stop trouble video. One tip is to go toe upon five dot com. As you can see here, these air some of the video clips that I've sold so done video clips in the casino of people walking down the problem nods. People like Teoh Purchase Sign Ege. So I've done signs of Alcatraz Island. It was a cool sign in Cape Town that showed the distance from Cape Town to popular destinations around the world. You've also got video clips of animals that I've sold. Also, food and nightlife is something that most contributors often overlooked. There's a lot of time lapse is out there, so trying to think of what you're interested in and what other people might be interested in purchasing, just try to avoid the shots of yourself doing selfies you and your friends and, uh, you know, doing shots off models if you don't have a release. Okay, so, um, let's hop over to the search area. If you're going to go to a location, let's say Japan. Not a bad idea. Teoh, do a quick search er, before you go on your trip you want a filter for videos and take a look at what's already there. If you want to get an idea to gauge the interests of a certain destination, se Shinjuku in Tokyo, one way you can get an idea of the interest is to look at the number of use here. So we have over 6700 views, Porsche and Juku and ah, this is in Tokyo. So two things we can learn here is that Shinjuku maybe a good area to shoot up. But maybe we don't want to do a 19 time loss that similar to this. You can also hop over to shutter stock dot com, shot of stock and pawn five, I believe, are two of the largest stock footage agencies on the Internet today, So not a bad idea to check them out. I've also put together posts on some of the top 10 earners on the Internet for common stock footage, so let's see what we can learn here. So the number one video clip generated over 13,000 dollars are under 14,000 dollars, was clean lining at the airport, and I see another stock footage clips done of the airport of people at the airport just walking or airplanes, As you can see here, airplanes landing didn't do too bad here. This one is off. Beach Paradise looks really nice. It's only six seconds long, but it's generated under $7000. Okay, and we have this ridiculing, which already saw. So this Times Square New York video clip has earned over 4000 dollars Sony 15 seconds long . And it's not even full HD. But this shows you. If you do a video clip stable at a popular destination, you could do very well with it. Mixed one here at San Francisco is a different category of video clip. Here it's Ah, aerial video Done. It's sunset on, Uh, at the moment this category of stock footage can command a premium. Uh, this one is selling for about $79 for the video clip. These are a little bit harder to get, but the good news is that technology to produce your own professional aerial footage is come down in cost because of the drones and the action cameras, and you could fit on them. But there's still a lot of opportunity there because a lot of, uh, contributors have not gotten into aerial footage. It this one of Las Vegas is a time lapsed on a night done from a high vantage point way. See here another video clip done at nights off the Bellagio. Uh, this is a free show at Las Vegas on this is not a bad idea to do free shows or events in a popular destination. It's just the 32nd video clip of the show. Nothing fancy, and it's turned over $3000. This one here is an aerial shot of Christ the Redeemer. Quality is not great, but I think that at the moment the customers are a bit more forgiving when it comes to aerial footage. Thats Hong Kong one. Here is a data nighttime lobs taken from a high vantage point on This is one of the talk earners in Asia just, uh, over $2500. And again we have, ah, nine time time lots at Big Ben in London. Okay, so that should give you some ideas of what you can shoot. Try to not spend all your time on time lapses over. Um, I would plan to do it at a good location on DA Good Time is just before sunsets, but they do take a lot of time to make. So don't spend all your time making time locks is try to get some other types of video clips in there like hand still shots tilt. And if you have the equipment, aerial videos definitely a good category get into right now. Another good resource to get an idea of categories that are in high demand is the block area on shutter stock. So they recently did a post on five stock footage categories that are behind a man. So things like establishing shots. These are shots that introduced people Teoh wear. A scene is taking place, so there's a lot of opportunity to do that when you're traveling. We've also got, um, videos of people doing sports. So how can you apply that to travel? Might be people dancing or doing something cultural? Uh, that specific Teoh, the destination that you're in aerial footage is popular. Main reason is that prices have come down for great technology. You don't have to hire helicopters anymore. Get a remote controlled drones or quad copters that you can attach cameras onto them for about $1000 US. So that's, uh, area of opportunity. Recommend that you look into so again, shudder stopped Log is a great resource, and they also have an area with some other tips that you can look at. 46. Which stock footage agencies: Hi, guys. My name is Greg Hung. Welcome to the online video production Academy Stock footage. Two point. Oh, course. In this video lesson, I'm going to cover which stock footage agencies earn money. So actually, this is one of my popular block posts, and I thought I'd do a current video for it. So it's 2016 and the two main agencies that have been eating to work with and I have been bringing me earnings are upon five and shutter stock. Now, in 2015 I was looking for 1/3 and fourth agency just to diversify and get my collection on another side. Uh, I'm happy to say that site is video blocks Video blocks was my third earner. And actually, in December 2015 I actually earned Mawr than Ah, I did on Pawn five. Uh, video blocks is easy to work with, and you can use your CSB falls for Pawn five and shutter stock on video blocks, just as they are. So that's huge benefit. They also give you a better cut off the yearnings and their systems really easy to use. So definitely get your collection on video blocks. The 4th 1 I recommend is dissolved. Dissolve is a Canadian company on, uh, their workflow is a little bit different. They do pay on a regular basis. They don't give me earnings as high as the other three agencies, but, um, they have consistently given me earnings. So dissolve is one that you can check out some other stock footage. Agencies again check out our picks. Tha picks the is based in Tokyo, Japan In trivia. I met with the team and they're very receptive. The feedback. And that's a good sign as a stock footage videographer. Uh, they do bring me earnings on day. Do give me access to the Japanese market. Um, their system is a little bit different to use, but I have video lessons to go through the workflow. And I've also worked with the picks the team to try improve on existing work flows. Another stock footage agency. You could use our motion elements Motion elements is based in Singapore. Also. Great team. They actually introduced me to stock footage. Um, they don't bring me as much earnings as the other agencies bought their system. They're newer system is pretty easy to use. And, uh, did bring me some sales. Okay, so, uh, that's a summary off some stock footage. Sites that you can use the high earning ones, and, ah, hope that gives you, um, some ideas you can save, sometimes shopping around for agencies to get your collection on. Because I do know that even though you can put your collection on many sites, it does take additional effort to manage your collection across multiple agencies. 47. Renting gear: Hi, This is Greg Hung and welcome to Sheikhly, AJ productions dot com This video lesson I'm gonna be talking about renting gear. So if you're a videographer and you're gonna be traveling a lot, renting can actually also be very helpful. Number one, you don't need to carry that gear around and to You can just rent expensive gear when you need it for Klein shoots or if you have a particular video shoot in that destination urine . I've used camera, uh, gear rental stores in Chiang Mai, Thailand, Taipei, Taiwan, Johannesburg, South Africa, Singapore and also in the U. S. Each company's little bit different, but what I recommend is that you bring your passport with you. They usually want a cash deposit or a copy, or even keeping your passport as a form of insurance. But ah, I think it is a smart way to travel. And, um, if you want Teoh, uh, get something in particular, I've rented GoPro's. I've also rented a telephoto lens when going on a safari in South Africa. I've also rented live mikes, and the good thing is that if you're doing a client shoot, usually you'll pick up the gear the night before, and then they'll be. It might be some time left over after you're done, your client shoot, which you can use for your own purposes. So I've used, um, that window of time to do training videos or stock footage. Things like that. So I hope this lesson gives you some ideas about renting gear and how can help you with your travel videography. 48. Biking stock fooage: 49. Creating csv pond 5 : Hi and welcome back. So your video files, maybe uploading to pawn five at the moment on while that's happening, I've opened up a sample CSP file. I'm going to try to get this over to you so you don't have to create it from scratch. But upon five is very picky about the columns and how they're named on the information that's in the Okay, So the first thing we need to do is get the exact file names. All right, so I'll give you a tip so you don't have to do this by scratch. So if you have a Mac open the APP called text Edit open up a new file on what we're gonna do is in the final. We're gonna highlight all our video files. We're gonna copy then and then, like pace on Max. Okay. Well, we could copy that on pace it directly into our spreadsheet. Nice way. Say sometime city and country. That's pretty easy. That's a copy in pace. As for pricing, that's something that requires a little bit of research. Uh, as a rule of thumb, about 55 the $60 for quality 12th video clip is about the range. If you're doing something that is spectacular, like a dolly shot or some aerial video, you're gonna want to raise the price. Teoh 70 the 75. But it's really about checking what's available in the market on, uh, pricing it competitively. You don't over price it, and you don't wanna underprice it to Dolly what you've created. Okay, so next thing is, let me preview clip first, I'm gonna work on quality in seven. So this is a 52nd clip. The Beautiful Mounts is in the Toronto Gorge. Okay, so I'm gonna go ahead, give that a 60. Okay, so, you know, we have to name the clip. Uh, but it Morocco. George. Uh, there. Okay. All right. Ah, uh, now we want to work on the keywords. So to do this shutter stock has a great keyword generator tool. Okay, so it just so happens we can use this for other sites. So this is a great resource use, and you can type in the name of the destination. In this case, it's the trouble, George, that is gonna bring up some images. So I'm gonna click on images that resemble what I've submitted okay? It doesn't have to match exactly, but something similar. And you need a minimum of three images that you need to click on then. So let's get keywords. Okay. Now, take a look at them. May want to add some additional keywords. Mountains travel. Okay, then I'm gonna copy this the clipboard and then paste this under keywords, okay? 50. Pond 5 upload2: I'm gonna show you the preview of the last video clip that we stabilize. You can see it's not too bad. Video editing software does a good job of stabilizing. But if ever possible, always use the tripod. It's much better than stabilizing using the software. All right, so now I finished exporting video files. Okay, so the next step is Teoh, go to our website, so we're gonna use on five first. So the area we need to go to uploads you can decide whether you want toe uploaded using FTP or through the web. I think that upon wives why Buffalo is pretty good. So s O what I need to do is this dragon drop basically okay. And then you'll see that it's working. When it's finished, come back and we will then work on a R S C Fall Teoh shortcut How we add information to the video clips on Pawn five 51. Upload shutterstock: So now it's time to upload our video clips to shutter stock. So I use FTP to do that using a program called Qala Zilla Over here, Paul Zilla. Okay, so what you need to do is entering your user name and password, okay? And then connect to the ftp dot shutter stock dot com site on. Then we're gonna take our files and drag him over to the FTP. Okay, so that's gonna take a little bit of time. So Well, that works in the background. We are going to go back to O. R S E C as a B file and make one little adjustment here. So we're gonna change the file name calling to original. Well, name. Other than that, we can just leave the follows is, uh do you keep in mind that shutter stock sets the prices? It doesn't matter whether we have this price column or not. It's gonna set the prices for you. So I'm just gonna rename this file. Well, Ian, shutter stock. Okay, so this time you don't have to recreate the file again. That's already there from on five. Okay, so what? We're gonna come back? We are gonna be on the shutter stock site on get a plier S E C s v file on show you how to do that. 52. Upload shutterstock 2: All right. Welcome, Teoh. Shutter stock. You're gonna get a slightly different look. But if you click on the upload page, what it's gonna do is give you the information you need to log on to your FTP program. Okay, so now I'm gonna open up an FTP program called File Zilla. All right, So what you need to do is quickly set up your FTP program to log on. I've already done that. And then once you've logged on, next thing is Teoh drag the files over, so we simply highlight them, and we would just drag them over there. Okay, Since I've already done that, we're gonna skip that and go directly to shutter stock where we're gonna start working on applying BS CSP file. Okay, so you click on submit footage. L The one major change we need to make for the shutter stock CSC follow is to change original file name to. Finally, we can leave price here, but do keep in mind that shutter stock sets the price, so it doesn't matter whether it's there or not. Okay, there we go. No. Okay. So I'm in the submit videos, area and shutter stock, and this is all Farley and footage. So I'm gonna select all click on the C s B button, browse the C s V, select the right file uploads and cross your fingers. Just joking. Okay, If you did everything correctly, the information will pop in there with no air messages. Just quickly scrolled to make sure that the descriptions air right. Sometimes if you do it incorrectly, it will put the wrong information with the wrong video falls. So in this case, it worked correctly. Next thing we need to do is categorize it correctly. Okay, so I've got some nature on and I've got some landmarks. Okay, Flow? No. We're ready to submit for review and submit for or review again. Okay, so it's gonna give us this annoying message and say that there's some errors with it. In most cases, there's no errors. It's just, uh, annoying message that they give just I think just so you can check the information again. So I just select it all. Then I re submitted for review. All right. The second time, it will let you pass through that message and then it sends the staff. It's waiting for the staff. Teoh check your footage and approve it. One thing. The notice that shutter stock seems to have ah longer turnaround time. Uh, Pawn five is a lot quicker. Pawn five usually can approve the footage within one day or even less. Okay, so I hope you find that helpful hold that saves you tons of time. I know it took me a long time to figure out the correct process. Two UCSB falls for both these sites, so I hope you find that very valuable on that Saves you plenty of time in the future. 53. Stock Footage Masterclass Conclusion 2018: Well, thanks for taking the stock footage, masterclass and congratulations. We've covered a lot of material on the stock footage. World is going to continue changed. The cameras are going to continue to change. To a certain degree, you have to keep up. Right now, The standard is four K resolution. There's aerial footage from drones. Now there's stabilization, gimbal and crane technology. There's high resolutions. There's higher frame rates. There's new bit rates. So you have to understand what is changing with the cameras, because that is going to drive customer demand. I think that there will always be demand for stock footage as long as there's video and videos on Lee becoming more popular. So stay on top off the hardware changes. Aside from that, you also have to keep on top off the trends in the world. What's happening around us? We're seeing smartphones that are allowing things like uber's and grab taxis, car sharing. We've got energy, sustainable energy themes. There's virtual reality. So these air good to be aware of, so that if you have access to them in wherever you are in the world, you can film them. I just sold two clips today that had solar panels and organic vegetables growing on a rooftop in Bangkok. If I didn't know about the trends, I wouldn't have shot and sold those clips. So it's important to stay on top of those trends. Also, I think it's important to film what you're passionate about. Sometimes I'm just walking with my camera and I see something that catches my eye so many times of soul clips when I followed that passion that draw, I think everyone has it. So don't forget about that, either. To be successful in the future. I think you need to treat this like a full time job or you need to scale. Now we have platforms like Black Box that allow us to outsource parts of the workflow so we can focus on what we're doing. Identify your strengths. I myself, I like creating content. I don't like what happens after that. The editing and the key wording. So I'm trying, experiment with black walks myself to see if I can scale up my content by using other people and platforms to help for the costs. So I think you need to think the same way, too. You also need to not rely on just one thing. I don't just rely on one platform. There's always gonna be some new agency. It might be also some new platform. There's one thing that you can take response before, and that's bowling your own following. I do things like license my footage directly to customers where these customers come from. I've built them up over the years. That is the one thing that agencies can take away from you. And since this is a non exclusive model, there's no reason not to do this. A final thing is to find your niche. What's your advantage? Is the nightlife? Are you located in a particular region on the world, or are you in a certain industry or job that gives you access to things like filming healthcare? Or are you in Bali, where you can film a lot of content in that region of the world? Find your niche, find what's selling and try to scale that stock footage. It's a long term game, takes a lot of time, a lot of effort, but it's very rewarding. But I wouldn't rely solely on stock footage, just as you wouldn't rely on one agency or platform. I think it's important to also do freelancing. If you have a camera, it means he got video skills. If you're ready. Filming stuff footage, so try to do videos for clients. Try to do editing for clients. You can look on platforms like up work and fiver to start to try toe. Find some clients to do. Freelancing. Freelancing is trading time for money. You're providing a service. You're getting paid right away. Stock footage is passive income. You're putting clips up there that won't sell right away, but they may sell in the future. So I think it's important to balance freelancing and passive income long term investments for the future. If you want to keep on top of what I'm doing, you can follow me on social media on instagram epic footage is my name on Instagram? Lost my personal counts right hung show dot com. You can go to Facebook and follow my stock footage. Group is called Stock footage Wholesale market. You can find me on YouTube, she large group and my website Sheikh Players Productions, all calm. I know that's a lot, but that's the world we live in today. Gonna be online gonna be on social media. Hope you enjoy this course and please feel free to ask any questions. And I wish you the best of luck in the future. 54. DJI Osmo What is the course about: this course is about the DJ I osmo, this video camera here. This camera was made by DJ I. They made the famous phantom drones, which are so popular these days, especially in 2016 and the beach I Osmo was made in 2015. It's still very new technology, and I think it's a great fit, especially have been flying drones or GoPro's to transition into a camera like this second film, Amazing Videos and get that Stabilized smooth shot can also do amazing photos like Selfies and Ramez time lapses, and it gives you freedom because you don't have to carry around a tripod, which for me it's a bit of a crutch. Well, you're tryingto travel with your friends and be mobile and ah, this is a whole new way off filming. So this course is going to teach you the fundamentals, how to do all the techniques and features that this cameras capable off later on. In the course. Once you're able to film great footage, I'm gonna take you to the next step, which is what do you do that footage? You may need some help editing your 1st 4 K video. Or maybe if you decide to build on online video business by monetizing your footage, I'm gonna introduce you how to do that. So with that in mind, let's get started. 55. Fundamental film techniques for DJI Osmo: in this lesson. We're gonna talk about different filming techniques you can use with the Osmo. So I'm assuming you've already connected to the Osmo and you're in your camera mode. Over here is the deep had It's just like a joystick. You can use it to tilt the camera up and down left and rights. Pretty simple. This one over here is gonna take photos. And that's four video over there. Okay, You'll notice when I record the video, the fan will turn off. So that's pretty nice feature if you have the latest update before the fan used to keep on going even while you're recording video. Okay, so now that you know where some of the controls are, I'm gonna show you some different techniques. So first we're gonna do the pan to do a pan. You just move the joystick just like this left to right. So some advanced tips for doing the pan is toe. Hold it very gently and look at the actual camera. Whiles rotating. You want to rotate? Nice, slow and steady. Not too fast and jerky. Okay. The tilt shot, you do the up. It's a down action or down two up. Same thing. Look at the counter to make sure it's going steady. All right, So you have new to new shots to your arsenal. Not going to teach you the side sweep, so pretty simple. Just moved the camera left to right. Okay. And cream shot is up, and then you go low. Now, notice. Even if you turn the handle down, the camera will make the adjustments, or the game will mind you. But the cream shot, what I like to do is I'll put it in this position. I'll just do a steady movement, talk to bottom, and then sometimes I'll press this joystick over here. This joystick will lock the camera on a target. So for a crane shot, I might start filming. And then once I've got a target halfway, I'll hold down the joystick just to lock it on. So even while the osmo is going very low, the camera's gonna lock onto the target top to bottom. And then, as is going low, I'm gonna hold down the joystick so the camera will stay on the card it. Okay, so let's do the pan again. So remember the pan. We're gonna hold on to the joystick. Left to right. Slow and steady. Okay, Will do. Tilt top to bottom. All right, So why don't you go ahead and practice that and then when we come back, I'll cover some or advanced techniques you can use to film. 56. HOW TO monetize your OSMO FOOTAGE: hi. So earlier I mentioned that I monetize my footage. So the types of footage I monetize our travel, lifestyle, food or sometimes even shoot video footage off models. They could be working on a laptop that could be eating or doing sports and some of the cameras I used before to do this Where my sl ours they film HD and I've used cameras like Phantom three Professional Drone to do four K aerials. And now I'm starting to use the DEA Osmo because it conduce smooth, stabilize four K video shots and the advantage off four K video is that it's future proof her perhaps the next 5 to 10 years. And in the stock footage world, you can actually sell four K video clips for more than HD video clips. Just to give you an idea on stock footage. Agencies. You can sell HD video clips for about 60 to 80 U. S. Dollars and four K video clips from 125 to 199 us. Keeping in mind that the stock footage agency is gonna take about 50 to 70% of that amount . So a little bit more about stock footage So basically, the idea is that you're creating stock videos that another business could download and use into their projects. So these projects may be establishing shots for movies. Maybe it's the first shot of a movie, and they want a four K aerial off the city. Or maybe either doing some movie that needs some B roll and they need a shot off a person working on a laptop. So that's essentially what stock footage is used for my customers. And the beauty off this business model is, it could really be done from anywhere. And it gives you a lot of freedom. So the freedom has given me is time and location freedom. I could do this from Thailand. I could do it on my own schedule, and I can create video clips you only limited by your creativity. So I'm gonna give you a couple of more bonus lessons if you're interested in learning more about the stock footage. Business model. Uh, it's really been great for me. It's online passive revenue stream that covers my living over here and deejay Osmo. It just so happens to film great four K videos. And although the also doesn't shoot good audio. That doesn't matter, because most of the stock I sell is just video content, so that makes it a great fit. 57. OSMO 360 PANO LESSON 1b: this lesson. We're gonna go over doing 180 degree and 3 60 picture panels. So these air pretty cool because you can get a 3 60 view off your surroundings. I'm just gonna go over some of the basics and then I'm gonna show you how I can use this technique in a more beautiful environment because it's not that beautiful here. So first thing we need to do is to get into photo moat. So in the top left off your app, just click the icon for the camera. So you should see that icon off What? Looks like two mountains just over here. So click that now I'm gonna see different options for different photos. Select Pano and you have an option of 1 80 which is gonna cover about half the room or 3 60 Okay. And then it's a simple as just pressing the button over here so I'll face, you know, and you just press the trigger. Some tips for doing this by hand or just to hold it very steady, don't move and then just wait for to finish for best results. If you have one is to use a tripod and I'll show you how to use that later on. But if you're out with your friends, you don't have time. I've done handheld shots and they're not bad. Okay? After it's done taking the panorama, it's gonna see generating panorama on the screen. So I just want to be patient, let it do its thing. Because what's really nice about the software is that you don't have to manually stitch all those photos that is taking around your environment actually just creates the photo for you , which is nice for lazy people. Um, it's a headache to stitch it, so just wait for it to finish, and that's it. So I'm gonna show you some situations where I've actually used this out in the field. And then we're gonna demo how to do this on a tripod In my soul, in my soul 58. OSMO Basic controls: on this last thing. We're gonna go over some of the basic controls. We're gonna look at the buttons on the osmo. So this over here is the joystick or the deep hats so uses to rotate the camera up and down or left and rights. Okay. And this button here's for the photo. So you can rotates camera position, then this press. It's for an instant photo. This button here is for a recording video. So free press, it's you'll hear the noise and then the fan on the Oslo will stop if you have the latest version of the firmware. If you haven't done that a recommend going to the DJ eyesight to get the latest firmware and download and install that now I'm gonna turn the osmo around so you can see the trigger . The trigger. Here you can click two times together, front and center. Now, if you want to change the selfie mode, you compress three times. Okay. Now Walton selfie mode. You can adjust the camera my hand or it can use the deep hat. Now let's go back to front center. So we're gonna click twice, Okay? Another technique. I wanna teach you is to lock the camera angle. So we do that just by clicking once and holding on the trigger. You might want to do this. If you're doing a walking shot and there's something that's interesting, you could just hold onto the trigger. The camera will lock on the target on demo this right now. Okay. And then I'll hold on lock onto the target. Okay? I'm gonna press record so you can see my tell set up there. And even though the camera's low, I'm gonna lock in a target. So the camera head heaps pointing of the target. Okay, so that's a quick demo of the controls of the osmo. Now, one more technique I'm gonna teach you is how to control the camera from the app. So if you're looking at the up here, you can actually turn the camera from the app by pressing on this screen while you're in the up, and then you can actually turn the camera. All right. So those your basic controls on the osmo and in the next lesson, we're gonna look at doing selfies 59. OSMO CONNECT TO DJI GO APP: I'm this lesson. We're gonna cover quick Basic set up for your dije, Osmo. So you can get set up quickly first going to just talk about some basic things and then we're going to jump into the app. So first of all, I recommend getting a good memory card, and that is Sandis Extreme of your close up of this. This is a 32 gigabyte card, and it's compatible with four K. But if you can, I would recommend getting a 64 gigabyte because these four K videos take up a lot of space on your memory card as well. Zero far drives. So you might want to also invest in another hard drive if you're planning and do a lot of four K video photos, don't take up much room as well as HD video. Okay, so next you're gonna need a mobile device and, uh, android or apple is fine. And you're gonna need Sedano the d. G. I go up. Okay. So after you're done that we're gonna jump into the app and I'm gonna help you set that up . We're gonna go into the app and set up WiFi quickly, and then we're gonna come back out to look at how we can start fooling with this high. So once you've set up the WiFi and you've got the passwords, let's turn on the Osmo. Okay? You're gonna want to take off the gimbal lock. So what that means is at the top here we look at the icon that's gonna ask you to flip that up, and then there's another lock right over here. So flipped the switch up. Okay? Now you could put your mold device in. I'm assuming you've already downloaded the DJ. I go out. So I have a pretty big phone. This is the same size as, ah iPhone six plus, so it should be the same here. Just push on to the side there, and then you can put these clips on the corner. Just the SecuritEs. Okay. Next, you're gonna want Teoh connect to the WiFi. I think the default is Osmo with a series of numbers. So click on that. Enter the password. The default password, maybe. 12341234 But if you've set up your own WiFi and will have a different password, Okay. After it's connected, go to your teacher. I go app 60. OSMO app: on this lesson. I'm gonna walk you through the deejay also up. So I'm just that the WiFi looking at the Osmo hot spot. So im already connected with the default password. 12341234 And I've assumed you already downloaded the DJ. I go up after you've done that. Open up the app and you can turn your osmo one. Actually, it should be ready on if you see the hospital and it may ask you which camera you want to open. So X Select D J I osmo and then click the camera button. I've already done that. So that should take you to this main screen which we're looking at. I'm gonna start by telling you the stats of the very top there. So I hope you can see that because the mike is covering it. So the top is this gonna give you some specks on your battery life, WiFi and things like the ISO shutter speed on the aperture, which are important to know for if you're doing video and also photos. So, uh, this is telling me I have I So 16 hundreds, 1/1 20th shutter speed of 2.8 zero exposure, and I can take 967 photos in JPEG and raw. We have 99% battery. All right, there's a lot of stuff in here. And to be honest, I don't use it all, but I'll take you through the functions I use the most of the videographer and, uh, let's get started. So over here is gonna be your photo and video mode. So we're in photo moon now to hop over to video mode, you can click over there and you can see that the settings have now changed. So as a videographer, if I'm in video mode, I can just click the red button to record and you can also press stop there. I've also showed you in the last thing. You can also remote control the camera from the absolutely could do that by holding down on the screen. I'll just press record first, hold down and just swipe, okay, so I can take a look at my apartment there and I set up okay, so we'll just leave that there over here and the auto. You can go into slow motion mode so I cannot record some slow motion. I noticed that the the camera zooms in quite a bit. So just gonna do some slow motion and look like I'm doing something. Okay, over here is where you're gonna be able to change the settings to manual or, ah, I believe this is aperture priority where you select the shutter speed and it will decide the I S o c I S o is great out, or you could go full manual. I prefer to go all manual, especially if I'm in a controlled situation. So I know which, uh, specific settings are going to use. So for this situation, because there's not a lot of light right now, I choose the high I S O and the shutter speed that allows me to get the most light in there . Okay, so this setting underneath is telling me that it's minus two. It's a little too dark. If I go into auto, I'll show you a little trick. Auto will decide the settings for you. So sometimes what I'll do is I'll put it in auto and then I'll take a look at what settings the computer decides. So I so 3200 1 100 shutter speed. And based on that, I condemn decide a manually. I can select something that's close to that. So it takes away some of the guesswork. Just go back to the four K camera. Okay, so let's go back. Teoh Auto. So auto decided on Isil thirty two hundred one over 30th shutter speed. So if I wanted to do this manually, I could get something close to that 1/30. And if I wanted to find to night, I can just buy changing the center there so you can see this E V meter changes the way I understand it. Your goal is to get zero over there, so it's not too bright. Knocked to dark, not over exposed. Okay, so with the shutter of one hundreds, it's a little bit too dark. So it says minus one. But as I go over to 40 shutter speed, I get zero. So I believe this is telling me this is the ideal speed. So what we can do is hit record. The fan on nozzle will stop and you can see it's recording there. If we look at the bottom, it's telling you that it's recording in the amount of seconds it's recording for. And it's also giving you the amount of recording time left on the memory card. So the capacity also giving you the meters for the mic. So let's go over the photo mode and walk through the different options we have there. So in camera mode, we can go over Teoh that I can to give us more options. This is just a single photo. 12th delay HDR we can take multiple photos, so let's take one right now. Look at the camera with shutter. Okay. I think you get the idea. We can also do a Pano Now we're doing this from my apartment. It's not gonna be ideal, but let's just try one anyways. Okay? £180 0 there we go. So is generating the pan? Oh, no. And that was actually pretty quick. Okay, so now we're back to the photo menu over here. We can decide if you want to record at a certain interval. Sorry. Take photos as certain. Interval time. Lapse. I covered in another lesson specific settings, but this is where you would access it. So let's just go back to single photo Okay, So same idea on the photos you can select manual, um, aperture, priority and auto. Okay. I like to use auto, and I like to tap on the screen to adjust the exposure. So basically, what that means is you want to tap on when you want to focus on and take a photo off. So let's just move the camera closer to me. So if I wanted to adjust the exposure on the TV, I could tap that or myself. This is probably not a good situation, uh, to demo this, but if you're let's just say I was pointing the camera outside, I could demo that better. So let's move the camera. I want to focus the camera outside Aiken, tap outside, see how that focuses on the outside. Or if I want to focus on the camera inside. I could do that, too. So that's why I like using the auto. And I just, uh, let you know I'm a videographer first before photographer. So auto is nice for that. So let's take one photo here, Okay? One other setting I wanted to show you related to photos is the format. So the setting you care about is image formats under the camera area. So have a choice of J. Peg Raw and J. Peg Plus Raw, currently set to J Play plus Raw Now Wrong will give you the most information to play around with in the editing face in post production. I tried it out yesterday, and it generates a large file around 18 to 19 megabytes. But in Adobe Photo Shop, you can do things like do full lights. You can change the saturation, so you have a lot of ruin the work with. So if you were taking if your plan was to take a really nice photo, I would do it in raw and UH, J Peg unrolls Nice. If you just want to share a quick photo, you have a small file on the J peg and the role which you can work with later on. Let's just go back to the left menu. This play button is just previews, so if you want a preview, the clips he just took you could do that over there, and you can also download them from that screen. So I was quickly download a file there very similar to the the drone di di men. You mean screen? Let's go back to the camera option there. So another important area is video resolution. This is where it can change from 10. 80 p. Two. Four K and you've got different frame rates. So personally, I like to use 4096216 So 24 friends for seconds. But I'll just keep it on 10. 80 p 60 frames per second and you can see if you're in video mode. Still switched the video vote. You can see at the top how that changes once you've changed the resolution. Okay, there's also the white balance. You can change. They can put grid lines. I don't really use this stuff. The center points hissed a gram. You can change the style. Here's an important one. You can control the audio from the Osmo camera, and you can select a mute the fan. Well, well, digital zoom control. I don't really use this, but see how I can pinch and zoom in there. I wouldn't recommend it. Okay, here's where you can control the gimbal we can going to selfie mode or re center. So the same controls as a trigger orientation. Look, I think that functions in the same way that the trigger does when you hold it down. Set gimble altitudes so can change the height of the gimbal. So some nice Kimball controls in there and last one is the settings with the gear icon. Okay, so let's go to general so we can change the WiFi settings here. This is where it can change the hot spot name and the password and the frequency 2.4 G versus five G. Uh, current set up to five G. I have a lot of device is broadcasting on 2.4. So I just decided to use five video cash I got on. So after you record video, you can decide if you wanted to keep a copy on your mobile device. Good for social media sharing. And it can also clean audio. A lot of options here. Okay, let's go toe gimble. Over here, you can control the speed off the gimbal minus currently set to slow, and you can control the stick control direction. This is the deep. Had I believe you can change how, what direction that's going to move the Oslo in calibrates horizon on Gimble Auto calibration I haven't uses before, but I will try it after I go through the camera with you. Okay, so this is actually a similar menu to where we went before, where you can change the video resolution, but you have a few more options. You can change the format between modern MP four. So according to Tom's Tech time, which I trust mob is a better format for Max. MP four for Windows video Standard and TSC is standard for North America. I believe pal is good for European countries. Okay, photo ratio 69 this standard on. I got my image formats, time lapse formats. You have option on video or J Peg and video. So I think that's going to create the actual image files for you, plus the video. So if you want oh, make your own time lapse, you can do that. I just use video, and then you have a whole bunch of other options. I'm not gonna go through all of them, but the mean once you might be interested in our anti flicker. If you're in another country format, the SD card is probably one of you reuse the most, and you can reset the camera to the defaults, which I haven't done. Okay, that's the app in a nut show. So I'm gonna go ahead and calibrate this gimbal and ah, okay, So it says, make sure the gimbals placed upright on a stable surface and the gimbal can rotate freely. Okay, I've now calibrated the gimbal, and I'll show you the B roll. OK, so thanks for watching this lesson on the deejay osmo app. 61. OSMO advanced filming techniques: I gonna demo the flash like ninja walk techniques. So you want to use this technique if you're gonna be walking and he wants video, so some keys to the second is to hold it like flashlights. And then if you have your smartphone here, you can use your other hand balance and hold smartphone while you walk and lasting is to click twice on the trigger to make sure the cameras on board it was dried up. Okay, so that's the wall clocks technique. One other key is when you're implying, cushion your steps. So you're not balancing up down so much. Walk slowly on steadily for the other technique I'm gonna show you is low angle technique. So there's two ways you can do this and encouraging experiments to see what works is more than one way. If you could just hold the also like this and then double click so the camera faces up okay , just like that, and then I'll demo all this work so again, when you want Christian your steps, we don't bounce, and there's one other way to do this. Maybe it's going to go from low to high. Hold it like this double click, and then, as you go up to get down on the trailer so you log on your target fried again. Double click. So it's facing for. And as you're going up, hold on the trigger right about now so that the counter staying focused straight ahead even know you're going from so something for techniques you can use for the Oslo again to walk flush like technique and the for bull angle from words. 62. Osmo advanced techniques : cover some of the bats techniques you could do with Dijon Osmo. Now keep in mind that a lot of the footage I film is for stock footage, so I might do some shots from mortar by or from a car. I'm trying to get cinematic shots that might be included as part of a commercial or maybe even a movie. So the first thing that it cover is the ninja walk technique, which a lot of YouTubers talk about. But I'll cover anyways. So to do that, you wanna hold the also horizontally double tap on the joystick just so it's facing straits . And then you can hold your smartphone on the arm just to give it some extra stability. It's a court, and then when I'm walking, I'm trying to keep it stable and take slow steps and try not to bounce around and just use my knee sufficient. My walk So the steel backwards walk here. So next technique, when it cover is sky. So sky plan. You can tilt the camera up, or you could even do this tilting down. I like to do it when I'm filming food, just to give a different angle. But the sky pan You can film it up the sky and get some nice shots If there's some cool lighting on the ceiling or moon So it just points it up And then on the joystick I'm just gonna turn around so you can see Just hold the joystick But you don't want to do it too fast You can adjust the settings on the gimbal So it goes really slow I was hit record so I could do Nice 3 60 Skype Ah, The next technique we're gonna cover is recall the rising crane shots. I like Teoh. Use this one if I'm walking, but I also wanna upwards moving shots. So to do this I put it in the same position as the flashlight technique. But while the cameras rising, I'm gonna use this joystick by holding down on it as I'm coming up so the camera will lock onto the target. Sometimes if you just going upwards motion, the camera will point straight up. But I want to walk it in. So what I'll do is move forward and then went spot here, press down on the joysticks, locks onto the target, so do this again. But now hoarse. So if you're in the starting position and the cameras not police straight, you can just double tap to make sure it straight. And then you can take slow steps. And now to make it go up and then hold on to the joystick. Okay? And you can also do this from top to bottom. Downward screenshots. So going down. No holding down the joystick so it stays on target. Yes. Go. Okay, so that brings me to the next. So this is a little Agnes stop or worm's eye view. Take advantage off. So you hold the stick this double. So you get awesome straight. Sometimes the camera eventually upside down always. Okay, Right now. So now, facing a straight Teoh course. So you see here nice and you can even do the rising crane technique by falling on the joystick to go from a worm's eye view. Teoh Regular. Those are some That's techniques. Talk about shooting at nice. So I like to shoot night finish for stock, and I'll talk about some of the specific video settings I like to do. I find that it's always better to do manual if you have some time But if you're in a rush and your with friends and you don't keep people waiting, you can always put your videos things on auto, and then you can tap to adjust the exposure. But if you're filming at night and you have some time, I like to set it on manual. Usually I'll set it the eso between 800 to 1600 I find if you go up to 3200 it's a little bit too noisy for stock agencies to accept. So ideally, want aimed for isil 1600 shutter speed 50 and electric filament four K 24 friends for second. And you can also look at the exposure it will tell you, plus two minus two. You want to get as close as you can to zero. Now, if you're new to manual settings and you want to guideline, you can set it to auto on. And if you look at the top will give you the I. So on the shutter speed that the computer of the software calculated, and then you can go see manual by clicking em, and then you can find to know settings so that they're closer to what you actually want another tool like to use if I'm filming at night? Is this led light over here? So what I'll do is I'll hold it on a stick hair on. And this light here will give me a little bit extra lining. So I don't need to turn up the eso as high also give performing at bars or parties and night time. So this led stick is pretty useful. My last technique is if you're filling in a car I've found while I was traveling in different countries and uber's, I found that sometimes you get really good, would it or good views from the car. But I was sitting in the wrong seat. I was sitting at the fronts and usually the best you might be from the back seat. So what you could do with your Osmo is it can turn it on and you can connect it Teoh device . It doesn't have to be in this arm. You can connect it Teoh iPad. And once you have connected, you can actually give the osmo to someone else. The holes. But you can control the Oz most camera using remote controls. So if I waas Teoh, give this husband of someone else. I could use remote control to have complete control the cameras. So someone else is just holding this to be my human tripod. So this is useful if you're getting someone to take a photo of you and your friends at a restaurant and they don't have any knowledge of how to take photos or if you're in a car, you need to have this to your mom or your dad. You have no idea what to do. So they're just holding the camp before you and you have complete control from your mobile device. So I hope some of those best techniques will give you some ideas. Get some great shots from your hospital. I think there's a lot more different shots can use. You're only limited by your creativity and some knowledge of how to use awesome to its full potential. 63. OSMO HOW TO EDIT OSMO FOOTAGE: Hi. And this lesson we're gonna talk about. What are you gonna do with that footage? What is the next step? You know how to take great photos and videos with OSB. Oh, now what do you do with it? So the first part of this is editing from your phone? Second part is editing from your computer, and the third part is the business side. If you want to monetize, learn how to monetize on your footage, I'll talk about that more in depth. But first, let's talk about just editing. If you set cashing on your mobile device, you can actually get the photos and videos straight from your smartphone or mobile device, so you get instant gratification. This is good if you just want no hassles and you want to be able to share your video clips or for those quickly on social media or Facebook. I like to do this. Just do a quick share on Facebook or Instagram, and the quality is not gonna be is good, but it's just right there on your phone. If you want to do a quick video edit, you can get software right on your smartphone. I know my movie is compatible with IOS, so I can actually do, and it's using not software. Or there's another software called Viva Video, which is compatible with Androids that can do quick video edit using the cash video, and that allows you to create something quickly when you have some spare time and just get it out there quickly. Now, the second part is, if you want to edit on your computer specifically four K video footage, I'm gonna give you some tips for first timers editing four K video. Four K video files are gonna be a lot larger, so they're gonna make your computer work harder. It's going to take longer to export those video files, and it's going to take longer to upload those video files. Okay, the set up, I recommend, is having a computer with a lot of memory and video adding software that can support four K video. So I like to use final cut Pro X on a Mac wit pro with 16 gigabytes of Ram. I think you can get away with eight gigabytes of RAM and using my movie, which is the free video adding software for Max. But I like to use final cut pro acts because I do professional stuff like multi camera angles and just so happens that it also supports four K video as well. But if you're just doing simple four K videos, no multi cam or sinking than I movies find for editing four K videos. I'm gonna have another lesson where I'm actually gonna edit video in I movie using four K osmo foot. It's just to show you how to take that next step. Okay. And then the next last thing, we're also gonna talk about how we can monetize the footage. 64. OSMO selfie Lesson 2: okay, high in this lesson. We're gonna be taking a look at how we can do selfie photos, different situations. You've got selfie photos at day, and sometimes you're gonna be out with friends and night time. So I'm gonna give you some tips for that on the self proclaimed Selfie King or King of Selfie. So I think I can offer a lot in this particular lesson. So first I want to do is tap three times. I'm going to show you my screen so you can get a view of what looks like from your end. So top three times. Okay, So while in selfie mood, you can adjust the camera yourself or use the joystick. Now, the top tip here is to look at the camera on Osmo, not on the screen. I make this mistake a lot. You can also use this tip. If you're using your smartphone to take selfies, look at the camera. Next tip is to tap on the screen to get the right exposure before you take your selfie. And if you're happy with the framing the exposure, just press the button. Okay? So, by default is going to take a J Peck photo. That's fine just for sharing on the Internet. But if your photo professional photo pro you like to change the contrast saturation, the brightness, all that stuff, you may want to change the settings in the, uh to do a raw photo so raw photo is gonna be larger has more information for you to do editing in post production. I just used J pegs because it's easier. Okay, some other tips for doing selfies, especially at night with friends, is to be aware of your light source. So at nighttime lighting is not gonna be is good. So if you can find a light source that's facing you your face, then you're gonna get better results. I like to use an led light panel. If you don't have analogy Light panel, you can just use any type of source. Maybe have a little light on your key ring. Ask someone who's not taking the photo to shine that light at you and your friends so you can get better results for your selfie. So take a look at some of the selfies I've taken with my led light panel, and one thing you can do is to remind your friends to look at the camera, not at the screen, And then make sure you got your exposure and snapped that photo. Okay, so those are some tips from the self proclaimed King of Selfie. Hope that helps you out. Yeah. Just don't to Yeah. 65. OSMO Slo mo: Hi. In this video lesson, we're gonna talk about how to do slow motion on the DJ I Osmo. Something that's pretty cool about the slow motion is that it's at 100 20 frames per second . Full high definition at 10 80 p. That's better than what my SLR cameras could do. Eso that's just high tech feature that's in this little camera. I think a lot of things the coolant still emotions. So I think you should really try this feature out. Just remember, it's not at four K. You can only do this in high definition, which is good enough for sharing on the Internet. So let's show you how to do this is going to turn around so you can see it now in your app . You want to make sure you're in video modes. So if your video modes tap the auto on the left side, which is just above the record button and then click slow motion now notice. Once you click the slow motion, it zooms in a little bit and you get less in your picture. So you just want to be aware of that. You might need to back up to make sure you get everyone in the picture while you're doing slow motion. So I'm gonna demo this feature not right here, because it's not a great way to demonstrate it, but check this out. 66. Understanding lens filters for osmo2: Hey guys, Greg here and in this video under be talking about lens filters for SLR cameras for D. J. Osmo and just explain in general how Andy filters convention fit you and just explained that there really good upgrade for the value and how they're gonna help your video quality . I was recently in Singapore, and it was thinking about what upgrades do I need. How's it going to benefit my bottom line than the friend said? What's making you the money and not to think about that? And I do a lot of stock footage, and I do it with the deejay Osmo. Now the problem with the deejay Osmo is that it's a camera with a fixed aperture, meaning it cannot control the amount of light coming through the lens into the camera's sensor and without changing things like the shutter speed. The problem with that is that it's harder to achieve ideal video settings, so typical cinematic settings require you to set the resolution at either 10 80 p or four K at 24 frames per second. Ideally, you want your shutter speed to be double that. So 1/50. So there is a range beyond that that you could still achieve a cinematic look. Sometimes I go up to 1 100 But if it's really bright, which it is in Asia, where Super sunny you know you have to adjust your shutter speed to really crazy amounts like one 1600 storm. Or just so it's not too bright. So on your phone or your monitor the picture is gonna look OK, but it's not going to be desirable by customers. So the solution is to get an ND filter, which is like sunglasses for your camera. So this is an example of Anandhi filter I got from my canon SLR. This was my first nd filter. If you think about the F number, the aperture. This lens, for example, is an F four, so the Knicks stop that's going to make a darker is at 5.6. I think what's after that might be F six or F seven, but each setting dark er's one stop. So if you think of these filters, they're gonna lie that she that seem, uh, filter strength just with the lens. So let me show you the cultures I have for D. J. Osmo, the problem with DJ Osmo is that you can't change the up you're setting for the SLR cameras . You can. Okay, so SLR cameras, you can change the aperture, and you can also use the lens filter to give it additional ability to filter the sunlight. Okay. Now with D. J. Osmo, we gotta newsies. So this is a filter kit. I got it for about 85. Sing. This isn't nd 16. I think it realize it to get four stops of light, darker filter strength. This one here, this is Andy eight filter, and I'm currently using anti four. This is what the the factory lens looks like. So it's very clear. And, uh, yeah, it doesn't allow you to achieve those ideal video settings. So this kids, it's made by Daisy D i A S e. It says it's made in Canada. Not sure if it really is, but it comes in a nice box, so I can just quickly swap out the filter that I need now just some guidelines on which cultures use. Let's just save your starting right out in the morning. Maybe you could even get away without a filter, but I would typically use an nd four filter just for a little bit. Filter strength. If you're filming during the middle of the day where the sun is the strongest, then you would want nd 16. And then as it gets closer sunset, you need a little bit stronger filter strength. So maybe you can try and d eight if it's not quite sunset, once it starts to get with darker, maybe you want nd four. Or maybe you don't need a filter. It also you just need to experiment with different filters while trying to achieve the ideal settings that you need for a cinematic video look. So I hope that explains why we use filters and some ideas off filters that you could use for pretty common cameras. And I've explained what filters that I use so well that video helps again check out the Media Creators guide. Pdf I put together with all the gear tools that I use. I want to use and includes everything from software and audio hope. This helps and we'll see you in the next video. As I do not believe in original, however, I have been corrupted life. I stand by my 67. OSMO vlogging Lesson 4: I'm this lesson. I want a demo How you can use the osmo to vlog. So this probably means that we're gonna be pointing the camera at us or you can pointed at another direction. But we're gonna focus on having this in video in selfie mode. Now something that you need to know is that the built in mic is not very good on the Osmo. So what I recommend is that you get a better microphone. This is not the best example. But Lisa gives you an idea off what you can do. So this year is shock on microphone me by company called Road. They make smaller versions off this mike. They make a live mic, or maybe a small shock on Mike that you may be able tow clip onto the camera. If you use a shock on Mike for best results, I recommend that you pointed towards you, but enough talking. Let me actually just demo how this would work. First of all, you want Teoh tap three times having in selfie mode. Now this shock on Mike was actually designed for an SLR because it has the heart you attachment, But I'm not sure if there are hard to attachments for Osmo. Yes. So I'm just gonna improvise here, so they want to plug it into the outlets and you can adjust the audio settings on the stock on Mike. So once you have your shock on my on, make sure is pointing towards you and you can actually use another device like an iPad or iPhone to make sure it's filming on you and then hit record. So the good thing about this is that the audio is gonna be recorded in tow. One file the video file, not a separate audio file that you need to sink later on. So that's pretty nice. So this should give you an idea of how you can blow. Another tip I can give you is try to hold it further away. And before you start recording, take a look at your app to make sure that your in focus I like to do auto. So you just don't need to worry about the changing lighting environment, and you could just focus on your actual delivery. If you have some help, you can have someone else use a mobile device just to make sure that the picture looks good . And if you have big shock on Mike like this, you can just improvise and use the stand over here to hold your shock on Mike. But a laugh Mike might be ideal because you can actually clip it on to you. Or you can get a small shock on Mike. They might have a clip that you can find somewhere to clip onto the osmo. So as long as you take care off your audio, I think the Osmo is a good fit for blogging. But just with the factory Osmo, the audio Xhaka me good enough, but the video is pretty good for those selfie video shots. Now let's talk about what settings you would use. I recommend doing HD if you're just planning the share on YouTube, but you can future proof you work doing four K. Just keep in mind. You're gonna have larger videophiles. You're gonna need a more powerful computer, and it's going to take longer to upload those files. So if you're willing to deal with that, then you could have future proof V logs that are gonna be good for maybe the Knicks 5 to 10 years. So those of something. My tips for belonging in selfie mode with the DJ Osmo. Hey, it's Greg hung here, and I'm about to start shooting Day one off my DJ I osmo course your asthma is a pretty cool, stabilize video stick made by DJ I and yeah, just don't Part two, yeah. 68. OSMO filming from a car: in this video, I'm gonna talk about filming from a car or a motorbike. I tested out doing this with Osmo, and it does actually pretty good compared to the GoPro. You didn't have the stabilization technology in the older models, so I would need to use the suction cup mount, put it on the hood of the car or stick into the window, and it actually did pretty well. But you don't need to do that with the stabilization technology. So what are some tips for filming on a motorbike? Number one is to get a friend to help drive. It's really hard to do this while you're driving, and it's not very safe. Okay, my second tip for filming on the motorbike is you want to try? Keep it as stable as possible. Don't do too many jerky movements to keep the picture smooth. And if I'm doing video, I like to keep it in auto, so this helps me focus on keeping exposure by this tapping on the screen. You're driving things that could be changing too quickly, so that's why I don't like doing manual. But that's up to you. If you want to, you can put it in manual and then make the adjustments while you're moving. If you're driving from a car, recommend you get a driver and open up the window and try not to stick out the osmo too far if you want. Avoid getting your phone damage or risk Getting the Osemele damage we can do is just points the Oz most camera outside the window to get some cool driving shots. Of course, if you want to risk it, you can stick the Osma out to get more of a point of view shot. They both look pretty great, so there's an idea of hiking. Use Osmo on the bike or a car, and you can get great shots. 69. The dji osmo stand: It's Greg here, from the beautiful dog job Ali workspace and in this video wanted to do a review and little unboxing of D. J. Osmo stand. This is an inexpensive upgrade for about $10. Spare part number 46. I got it from Singapore, but you can get it from any video or D I store. And the reason why I like it is a glossy to do things like what I'm doing now. I don't have to or about holding the osmo so it functions as a portable tripod, and you can do your 3 60 pan owes. You can also do very stable videos and not worry about holding it with your hand. Of course, D. J. Watson was also useful if year doing hand help shots. But it's nice. Does this have an inexpensive tripod just to put the osmo on? Especially if you're doing filter changes or you just need arrested somewhere? Well, you're getting your accessories, so I'm just gonna take the awesome off the stand just to show you what it's like. Not a very complicated thing to understand. Turn the camera around. So this is it. It's, uh, it's actually looks heavier than it is. And I thought, How can this thing hold the deejay Osmo? It's looks pretty light, and, uh, you can see it's meat on a plastic, but basically and Osmo just sits in there. You press down the button, and it's designed to counter balance the weight of the osmo. So really great to fit in your backpack. It's not too big and just comes in this box. So definitely an accessory I recommend you get for the job, Osmo. So this is my new tripod. 70. Feiyu intro: Okay, I'm happy to introduce a new type of gimble for your smartphone called the Fe You Log Pocket Gimble And this products really exciting because it's part of a new generation of smartphone, had held gimble with a good price point and allow you to level up your production value and pull off new shocks that you wouldn't be able to use with just your factory. Smartphone uses a Bluetooth connection to connect to the APP and gives it a range of new capabilities like the hyper laps. Motion laps give you some new color filters. You can do things like 3 60 panels, but of course, you also get smooth gimble style video with your smartphone. So I believe this is a good entry point into Gimble filmmaking. If your travel blogger or instagram er by using this gimbal, you're gonna immediately put yourself on a different level from the average person with smartphone. It's amazing the results that you can get when you put your smartphone on a gimbal. Just be sure that if you're do vlog that you need to take care of your audio requirements. This gimble is not gonna help you with that so you need to either get a smart live microphone or maybe a shock own microphone that's designed for a smartphone. Okay, so the balancing side of things is gonna be covered really quickly. This convey be a little bit tricky, but we've got a video on that. Next, you need to download and install the fe you on up, which is pretty good for controlling. You're gimbal, and it's pretty intuitive. The connection side of Things uses Bluetooth and again that's also pretty much seamless. Pretty automatic now to control the gimbal. This. Remember that there's a button you can do things like double top triple tap. I'll cover that in another lesson. You also have the ability to do on Matic fish tracking, which will cover, but it didn't work out too well. Keep in mind that you can always big your firmware and things can improve over time. We updated the firm words with the latest version when we film this lesson as of February 2020 and we also have some lessons as mentioned on time lapse at time lapse video using motion lapse and high prolapse is walsum took for doing video. So this is a great product for the price that comes in around 17 80 us that you could get on Amazon. I'll put a link to it if you're interested and works with the range of smartphones, so hope you enjoy these lessons and good luck on your gimble filmmaking. 71. Feiyu setup and balance: the first step to assemble the failure Gimble is to assemble it. So we're gonna touch on the tripod legs, unscrew the neck, and then just bring it out, then tighten it up again and then extend the tripod stands so can stand up. And then we just need to unlock the neck. I need to turn around the phone cradle. Okay, men, get your phone. Make sure the phone cover is off otherwise of my not fit and try to sender it. So that's it's completely balanced. So you can see here. The phone has the climbs on the center, and ah, just try to make sure that the clamp is not pushing any of the buttons on side game. Once his balance, you can turn on your failure gimbal, and the next step is to download the failure on APP, and then you'll connect to it using Bluetooth 72. FEIYU APP & FIRMWARE: okay. When you first get your fill, you vlog pocket gimble you need to install the failure on, uh, and once you launch, it connects pretty fast using Bluetooth. No, If you click that icon and you click home, it's gonna give you the option to upgrade the firm worse. So read the instructions and just click the check box. Got it and click Upgrade. This box was a little bit confusing. I wasn't sure if it meant that the camera should not be in the cradle or that it should not be connected through Bluetooth. Anyways, I just left the phone in the gimbal and let it do its thing and finish the firmware upgrade . Not the most exciting thing, but it's a good start before you get going with the skin bull. 73. Main functions hd feiyu: All right, We're gonna cover some of the basic functions here. There is a button Ah, on the handle that you can use to do a couple of things. If you press it once, is just gonna start the recording on the video or urine photo moan. It's going to take a photo. So it's like your shutter button. You click two times you're gonna switch between photo and video mode and vice versa. If you click three times is gonna put it into selfie mode. So just keep that in mind. It's nice to access those functions really quickly. And, uh, if you tap some of the photo functions, you'll get a number of options here. We're just gonna test the 3 60 panorama, and we're just gonna tap it on the panorama button, and then the gimbal is going to automatically do a 3 60 panel. So we just have to wait and let it do its thing. Okay, the panoramas finish. So once it's done being composed, you can just click the icon in the top rights to preview any of the photos or media that air on your memory card. Okay, there's some advanced options here where you can access the filter. And this is pretty cool because you get filters from the software that you can use either for photos or for video. Okay, now we're gonna look at the AI function, so the guy is a face or object tracker that allows the subject to move. And the idea is that the gimbal will move along with your phone so it will follow her. At least that's what it's supposed to do. We found it doesn't work very effectively, so we did a second test. All right, so you're supposed to click on the face or it's an object. Draw a box around it, and then you can press that red button on the side. Teoh, just disable it. In my experience, the A. I didn't work too well, but that's how it works. And just be aware that it's there. Maybe they come up with future updates that make it work more effectively 74. Feiyu filming: I'm going to quickly go over some tips for filming nice, smooth video with this gimbal. It's pretty similar to other Gimbels like the Ronin. Pretty much you want to avoid any bounce in your step because the gimbal cannot stabilize that. So what that means is ninja walk. Try to keep the phone and the gimbal as level as possible. If you look at it in this video here, you'll see that it's not balancing too much. It's a little bit easier to do this while you're side stepping, but as you can see while I'm moving forward, I'm using two hands and trying to keep it is level as I can for best results. 75. Feiyu motion lapse: we're gonna cover the static and the motion lots with the failure. Gimble. So when you tap on the icon, you have two decisions to make. You've got the shutter interval, which means how often is to take a photo, and I prefer to do 0.5 seconds of it's really fast action, or maybe even 1 to 2 seconds if it's slower, option, like in the office just working. And another thing that you can do with the static time lapse is that you couldn't even walk with it to do what we call a hyper laps, which has a really cool effect. My favorite setting for this is one second, and the duration is up to you. You could do five minutes or longer. Look at the reading below. It will give you the actual duration on the finish video, which it will create automatically with the software. So I'll give you a demo of that right after a while, it's actually recording the time lapse. It'll just look like this. You'll just see the recording button on, and we'll just look like a normal video. But this is what the playback looks like. You can make a more interesting by doing key frame zooms. And next coming up is the walking hyper locked to pull off the walking high prolapse. You want to set up the time lapse the same way, but maybe set the interval to a least one second, pick up the gimbal on your phone and then just walk around and keep it fairly steady and level right? The motion lobs. So for the motion laps, we set it on the tripod, and we set up more than one target. So the first position we're gonna is gonna tap, and then we're gonna move the neck of the gimbal to let's just say another side of the room and then we're gonna top and we have the option of creating 1/3 target. Or we could just click Knicks. So I just click Knicks. And then I set up my interval and the duration, and then I just let it start. Here's an example of the Finnish motion locks that I did it a cool cafe. So both of these techniques air some of the most exciting features off this gimbal that gives your phone. They believe you pull off these shots
