About This Class

I created a complete Travel video course because I couldn't find any courses on this topic at the time I made this. I spent most of my past 4 years specializing in travel and video and thought was the right time to share my knowledge.

The Art of Travel Video is a training video made especially for travelers who are interested in making their professional videos using SLR and action camera's

Travelers have special requirements. You may want to film underwater in the great barrier reef or you may want to capture your drive along the coast of New Zealand. You might want to capture the nightlife of Hong Kong or capture a beautiful sunset at Maui.

I've produced over 100 videos specializing in trave in destinations such as Kruger National Park (South Africa), Capetown, Singapore, Turks & Caicos, Vancouver, Maui, Bali, Hong Kong, Taiwan and more.

Course contents:

1) Camera gear and accessories -- which camera models, lenses, accessories, lighting, and sound

2) Plan and packing -- How do you pack and protect your gear and make good use of your time. How do you know what to see and stay to help with you with your travel video.

3) How to film your shot -- a live in the field demo of actually setting your camera to shot a great shot

4) Editing -- An actual live editing video showing you step by step how to edit in Final Cut Pro X and put together a great travel video

5) Sharing -- How to take your finish video and sharing it through social networks or burn a DVD or blu-ray

Hi I'm Greg. I'm a South African Canadian Travel Videographer aka Global Citizen. I first got into video filming with a sharp camcorder in high school making my own short films and tennis video and editing on a VHS.  In 2011 in Simon Fraser University (Vancouver Canada) I rediscovered my love for video while filming an earthquake hiphop safety video for a Media Course. 

After I graduated from Simon Fraser University (BA Communications) in Vancouver Canada I went on to pursue a successful IT career working 13 years as an IT manager. I went onto to complete my MBA in Technology Management SFU and found my Entrepreneurial inspiration to start my own travel video business in 2011 during the DSLR video revolution. I sold my downtown Vancouver Apartment, bought an iMac, a Can... See full profile

1. Introduction to the class: what it is, right? I'm a world explorer. For the past three years. I travel around the world. Countries like South Africa, Australia, Singapore, Taiwan. I'm ready now to share this great knowledge of you so you could build your own great child video. So first I'm gonna help you select exactly what very need cameras, tripods, dollies, all the equipment in here that you need to fill high production value travel footage. Seconds. I'm gonna help you plan and pack your travel trip. Third, I'm gonna help you while you're actually out there. Uh, how bone great trouble videos and time for after you've got your great travel footage. How you go back to your computer and use your video editing software to after footage on there, Produce your own great trouble video. But I'm gonna help you how to share those videos on social networks like YouTube, video, other social networks, or maybe even want to share through a CD. I'm gonna help you with all that. So let's get started on. I hope you enjoy the show. 2. Camera & Gear: Okay, lets saw cameras now. So I'm gonna introduce the camera called the Canon five d Mark to The reason why the camera was important is because it started the high definition video SLR craze. This camera allowed you to phone Hollywood quality video, uh, with the lenses that you could change. I had that nice look called showed up to build where you get phone subject in the focus with blurry, blurred background. A very cool, uh, let's get forward to today. 2014 on Canon five d. Mark two has been replaced by the Canon five d mark three, which is a really popular model I recommend for photos and videos. I like to use the Canon's FD, which is this camera. I also like to use 60. All three of those walls I mentioned are great cameras Canon five D mark to still a great camera. So these air, asshole, our cameras. So the advantage of them is that they could do photos on really great video. You can also switch the lenses so you can change the lens. Depending on the situation, you might be in South Africa and you want a bone so great wildlife photography might put. One of those long lines is on there. You know, the great looking ones that look like you're You're a journalist or you might be following the fireworks and you want to capture the entire seeing with beach all the fireworks so you can see everything you might want. Switch out to a wider lens for that situation. So these explore time is air very versatile for that purpose. 3. Accesssories: So this camera here is the GoPro, and it's known as the Action Camera really good for travel because it's so small. And, uh, you can take it under water when it's got the casing on it, which is good up to 60 meters. Another benefit off the GoPro is that well, one is that this case that comes with that is so durable I've actually dropped it well, writing on the motor bike motorbike following the highway and little works fine. Um, I've also attached this to my quadcopter. It's crashed many times, and, uh, this camera just keeps on going, so it's very durable and, uh, the picture quality when you have enough light and it's a stable shot, it's a very good picture. The most recent model also comes with an app, so I can connect your smartphone to the GoPro, using the built in wide by on. It's really good for programming the camera because I don't have a screen on the back and you don't really need it because the lens that comes with the GoPro it so wide, um, meaning that it can fit a lot into the picture. It has a fish islands look, so it's a little bit circular around the edges, But whatever this thing sees is gonna get in the picture. Uh, some of the disadvantages off this cameras that you can capture a lot of detail. You can't get a, uh too close. And you can you can zoom in on the lens. It's fixed. Uh, doesn't perform really well in low light, but for the price, it's a really good value on def. You go on a beach water vacation. You can use this thing without warning about worry about getting wet. You can also find really cool accessories. This one is a suction cup mount, and, uh, this will stick to any glass or metallic surface. So you can really be creative with how you, uh, side the film with the GoPro? Um, I've tapped into heads of cars on, uh, like I said, my quadcopter on some people talk to the surfboards or their heads with had struck. Some people attach a pole to the GoPro eso these air all creative ways. Teoh, get some good footage. Okay, so we're gonna look at some accessories. Uh, so this is a light panel and how it works. is that you can attach it to hot shoe off your S lord camera. So this is the hot shoot area on. Uh, what happens is you can just mounted on top, just like so turn it on. And this is really great for filming nightlight. Or if you're out at night, you just don't have enough light. Can also function as, uh, flash for your photo. In fact, that, like using the slight panel better you can get this for about just over 100 bucks. It's just a really great tool that I recommend. Uh, this here's a spare battery. Definitely bring to bad news value traveling. It will really help me out if you're traveling. And, you know, you just don't have time to wait for the battery charge for a couple of hours. Also carry extra memory cards. Uh, this extra battery for the go pro on This is a compact flash card. Here we go. You also want to make sure that your memory card is fast enough for video. This one is 60 megabytes for a second. And, uh, the GoPro battery doesn't last too long on the Herald. Three of the so, uh you want to carry two batteries? Sure. Uh, this here is a wireless transmitter. And the way this works, is it. Also attach is on top of the hot shoe of your camera, and this is used for time lapses, sometimes for the sped up videos that are taken over our But you can view it in two minutes . So this just touches on top on, uh, you plug it on the side and use your remote control. Teoh, program your camera to take photos every X number of seconds over more natural technique later. But that's the gear that you need. This is, ah, generic threat. Uh, conceive some money by getting the generic brand and functions just the same. If you're traveling and you have a budget would be great if you can have to wrestle our bodies one to serve as a backup. Uh, if you don't have the budget than, uh, recommend you try to back up your footage as often as you can. So if you're traveling, if you have one of those small laptops, this is a magical cures a bit on the heavy side. But if you have a laptop, uh, for longer trips. Very good idea, Teoh Lying savior. Your footage on a portable hard drive like this. This one is a ruggedized violas seat and has a thunderball connection with that, uh, Thunderball local under. And that's the fastest connection that you it is currently available for the hard drive to the laptop. Really important for video. If you don't have the budget, you can get USB three, which is still fast, but not a spouse is wonderful. Just try to avoid USB two or lower. 4. All about lenses: So let's talk about lenses now. I think that lenses are just as important or more important than the camera body. One year when you're looking at buying right here for travel videos, not when I first bought my camera. I use the lens that came with. That's fine to begin with. But if you want to take your videos to the next level, I strongly recommend that you invested very good luck. So let's start with fundamentals. Everyone's is gonna have a number on it. This'll number on this land, says 24-105 and then Okay, so a number that's lower to zero is means it's a wider. A wider range means that you can fit more in the picture really good for getting videos off landscapes where you want to capture the entire mountain or you got fireworks and you want to get the audience of beach and the fireworks into picture. No, the higher end of the spectrum about 200 event is considered a We call a telephoto ring, and that's when you want to get in really close. Really good for wildlife photography when you want to get a video shot of that. Lie it. But you don't want to get too close to that lion. So I really like, uh, zoom lens. This is a zoom lens. As you can see, you can change the light. So this'll be 24. And then if I want to get a little bit closer, actually a lot closer, this will be the 105 Okay, so there is a focal life, and the second thing to know about Elin's is that it will have a number on it. This one is a four, so we also is also known as aperture. Now a picture means how much light that goes through the lens and into the sensor off the camera body. So where you want the more detailed shot you want? A lower aperture numbers, so lower temperature number usually is around at 1.4. That's considered a little number. This leads at four, which is a little bit on the higher side, but it's still low, but generally you want toe get to get a lower number around 4.44 OK, so that's our aperture. So way also have different type of lenses. This is considered a wide legs, wide zoom lens, and this is 11 16 so the saliva specialize in getting those wide shots. You can also get prime lenses now. Prime lenses. You are limited to just that one. So an example. Maybe a 50 millimeter. So if you want to get closer or you want to get, you want to change the focal length off that picture, you gotta do with your legs. But I recommend for travel really to get a zoom lens. It's just more flexible and more convenient. You don't have to swap the lenses out, so I really recommend this lends its a cannon 24 105 which is a very practical focal length half, because when you travel, you may need Teoh getting close for shot of food or some animals. Or maybe you need to get more in the picture and you need a wider shot. So I find 24 1 of five is a really practical life. This lends is I see this red line on it means an l serious lens. So this is the luxury line off cannons, lenses, and I can tell the difference in the picture quality when I first started bombing, I used the lens that came with my camera kits. It wasn't in L series lenses, and I could tell the difference between professional quality and, uh, picture I was getting from my kit lens. So analysis Erie's lens will raise the production value off your pictures. Another thing to note is that lenses by canon that are E f lenses, they'll say yes on it. It means that they could be used across almost all the canon SLR counter bodies, which is really great. You also need to know that there are two main types of counter bodies. So we have a crop sensor camera body, which is a cannon 70 and we have a full frame. So full friend models are having 60 10 and five are too, and kind of five year mark. So a full frame counter body well, generally let you film with the actual focal length that you see on the left. So this is a 24 105 That's what you're actually gonna be getting when you touch the lens to the counter body. Generally a little more expensive. Thanks. Problem sensor. A sensor counter. Bonnie like Canada 70. When you attach this lens to the camera body, you're gonna have to times number the focal length by 1.6. So this 24 which is the widest like this blends and full that you have to times that by 1.6 you have to do that for every whatever local life you choose on this lens. So what does that mean? It means that for full friend, uh, counter bodies, you're gonna be able to get more in the picture. On the other hand, or pop sector bodies, it's gonna lie to get mawr liking because your time sing your focal owned by 1.6 you probably wanted What do I use? I use a canon 60 which is a full frame camera. So I got benefits off getting a lot more in the picture with I also have a problem. Sensor can 70 which is the first Catherine that I bought. So I allowed me to get more length from the lenses that I have because I'm time sing, uh, localized on all the letters today. Oh, my about 1.6. So that love me, you get the balance. All the pros and cons of our bodies. Okay. Uh, no. If you're not sure which leads again, I recommend that you rent some less is not a pencil. Oh, wait. Experiment Since also get if you're gonna go on a trip and just want to find a lens for your trip and then if you decide you really like to let then invested so I'll provide information on companies you can run from and it's really a good way to start. 5. Changing the lens: okay in this scene, I'm gonna cover changing out the lens. I like to change the lens out if it's already on the tripod. That way I don't have to worry about fumbling the camera body while change the lens out. Okay, so I have the 50 mil lens and I want to switch to the 24 15 So lens cap on first. And I like to keep my lens cap in a particular pocket. Like if you have too many pockets, you have might have a couple of jacket pockets, some pockets of the fronts and pops of the back. Just picked one pocket. I like Teoh today. I'm using my my back left pocket for all my lens caps. That way, you don't fumble around when you're doing the scene and you just say, become more efficient because you're gonna be doing well. I'm gonna be doing a lot of different scenes day on the stock footage suit. Okay. Uh, so let's switch out. So you want to be very careful when you take the legs off Not to have anything touch the back of the way to make sure the cameras off. Press this button turn the lens left. So make sure this part Don't let anything in there as well as the back of the lens. I'm just gonna put it in my camera bag. Now, I'll take the lens cap off the back line up the red dots, turning to the right. Okay, insecurely on. Now, put this lens cap on the back of the 50 mils. That's how we change up line safely. 6. Packing and planning: Okay, so now you put your plane trip. You got your gear. Now you're ready to apply on your trip to something To give you some tips for that, I recommend getting one of these types of bags so much of this small enough to bring onto the plane, but large enough to store your delicate equipment like their camera, body or lenses and your memory parts. Okay, so taking the lens off camera body. So it looked like this. Store it in the bag, and if you have a good let's, they may give you a hammer back like this, and you can stored in there show you pull the drawstrings. So it's nice, and it's not Okay, So I have another letter. I'm also stored in there. Okay. Batteries, memory cards. Put it all in here. It's useful to have some side pockets. Teoh story, miscellaneous stuff. So I got my full time. Lots is other wires, cables, batteries, memory cards, some other useful peaches. Teoh having a bag, our side pockets useful. Put some drinks. You get there. See, when you're filming in trouble. So good to have you with you. Okay, so I like to keep this bag with me at all times on the plane. If I go to the bathroom and traveling alone, I want to take this bag with me. You want to keep your on this bag at all times? Okay, if you've got a lot of stuff that's useful but also have a little bag like this, just a story or miscellaneous. Things like you might have screwdrivers are certain wires is useful just to have it organized, all all in one place. Another bag that's useful. If you've got a tripod with you is have a my pot. So I got this fight back. It's large enough to start my tripod, but, uh, it's got a strap. So I put it around my shoulder, Okay. It's got some good padding and also got some extra pockets that you can store wallet or some other things. Maybe it Okay, so just swings around over here. I'm going on a strike for data goes to do some filming. I just put these boats around my shoulder. I'm lucky to have a friend, probably with me. They can help me with one of these bags. If you're gonna be going on longer trips you might want to take your laptop with you. For that. I got a different bag that I also want Teoh bring with me on the plane. So I like the fact that because lots of different pockets that I can serve my hard drives on a laptop. Look, bag has, uh, pocket that I specifically made for a lot. Okay. So bad like this that has a handle on. Well, I can drag it around with me. Okay. Once you've got your back, recommend that you haven't even larger trouble back with wheels and a handle that you can put your bags in it. So let's look at this travel bag and I'll show you what I mean. So I carry a doll with me. You don't necessarily need this, but this bag is large enough with unit. I also have space to tripod on, even like camera bag. Okay, I wouldn't do this when I'm going on the plane, but I'm just going from the airport to the hotel. That might be just easier just to put everything in one bag. Okay, so this bag has a handle and wheels, so it's really easy to take with me planning beforehand on your travel film, Trump is a great idea. Even save you a lot of time, make you use it efficiently. It will help you give you an idea of where you want to stay. Great resource. I'd like to begin with. There's Wiki travel, so using dependent as an example, I can see, uh, where the main attractions are. I love the way it's organized, So once you get an idea of what you want to see and what you want a film, then you can get an idea of the area that you may want to stay. Sometimes I may even shoes and commendation that's got a prime view of the locations so I could film right from the balcony, for example. I did this at Table Mountain. I got apartment directly facing Table Mountain that really allowed me to get a great time ups, Um, and also look at special events. You may want to look at lens rental companies at the destination you're traveling in and see whether it makes more sense to rents in your home country or a rent at the destination country. There's advantages sarin sing in your destination country. Did that in South Africa on got one of the longer telephoto lenses that I didn't have to carry on the plane. So that worked out really good for me. Um, sometimes you may need specialized equipment if you're gonna be filming underwater, and you may want Teoh, uh, make sure you get that equipment in your home country because they may not have it available at your destination country. Some other resources that I like our trip advisor to listen to or read other travelers Reviews of a particular destination, Uh, Airbnb is good on, um, for lenses like, uh, lens rentals dot com give you an idea loss of information on the different types of lenses and costs. It's a company that I can vouch for. Okay, So once you've decided where you want to go, your book, your trip, you know what you want to see The next step by suggests, is to figure out where you want to stay. Some important considerations are is the place you're staying close to. The attractions you want to see on is your place close to public transport in the city that you're staying in has a good public transport on example for me was when I went to Melbourne. Um, I wanted the film attractions in the South Bank area. Eso I like Airbnb for this because it gives you the opportunity to stay with locals on De. So those locals were very helpful given me the insider tips which saved me a lot of time. He also live close to the tram so I could get around really easy and quickly, uh, go back to the apartment, get more equipment if I needed to on their map feature. Lozzi is only in on accommodation in particular areas in your city, which is just so useful. Also, when I went to Cape Town, South Africa, I didn't necessarily use Airbnb, but I got an apartment that was directly facing Table Mountain on That allowed me to get up early mornings, time lapse and to save me a lot of time. Probably 2030 minutes driving, setting up. I was ableto eat some breakfast on the balcony while I did the time lapse. So just consider those types of decisions could make your life a lot more convenience. Okay, so some final planning tips for you, If there's an attraction, you really want to see. It's always a good idea to try to buy the tickets in advance. Most attractions you can buy it through the Internet example was Robben Island in Cape Tongue. It's such a popular attraction, and if you want to film there and trouble there, you wanna get the tickets in advance. Weeks and events. Another thing to consider when you're filming is look at the weather and events. It's always better to film and take photos in better weather. So using Taipei's an example Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and so on would be days. I want to make sure that I maximize the time that I'm taking photos and videos on those days. So in addition to the weather, it's also good to know that the best times to film our after sunrise and before sunset. So to figure that out, I like time and date dot com. So using type E tie one as an example. I can see that on, uh, when it's good weather on Wednesday, which is urinating. That sunrise is gonna be at five o'clock. So if I want to catch the sunrise, obviously be there before 504 or I just want to catch the sunlight from the sunrise. Arriving around 5 a.m. On with sunset. It's at 6 46 so I want to ride their lease an hour before set up my camera on Get a Good Transition for time left some other tips for doing time. Lapse, especially in the evening, is that it gets cold. So bring an extra jacket, some hot water, and it doesn't hurt to bring ah, take out meal with you so you can eat while you do your time lapse. So hope all these tips help you plan your travel filming trip a lot better. 7. Filming in the field framing the shot: all the canon DSLR models that I mentioned can shoot high definition video meeting up to 10 . 80 p assed these 30 frames per second. So I like to film a 10 80 p 24 frames per second to get more full. Look, if you want to do slow motion, which looks really sweet by big sports are anything looks good in slow motion. Uh, you're gonna want to film it 7 20 p 60 frames per second. So once you've got your gear, you're ready to go out in the field. You want to make sure you cover the basics before you go out and start taking pictures and video. So the first thing is to make sure that you've got, uh, battery in your camera and charged. It's also good to have a spare second thing. You want to make sure that you got your memory card in your camera and that you've got space on it. It's also good to have a spare in your camera bag. You want to make sure that you've got all the lenses that you want. If you have more than one and I like to before I go, I go out of the hotel room or the apartment just to make sure. Just test the camera out, so turn it on on. Uh, take a picture and then do a short video clip before you leave. Just give you that peace of mind. One of the recommendations I have when you're gonna be folding is a tripod, and a tripod could make the difference between amateur video footage and professional video footage. So on your SLR camera, you're gonna have they might have a plate. This plate screws onto the bottom of the camera on. I could put the camera on top of the tripod, and it just locks like that. Okay, so once you're ready to start filming your footage sunny day, you might bring your son losses, which is fine. But when it comes time to actually shooting, I recommend that you take them off so you can take a better look taking a photo. It's better to be able to see clearly on the same with video. These screens air pretty small in the reflective on. There's some accessories that you can you can purchase to work around with this, but most travellers are not going to get into that. So it's better if you just take your sunglasses off. That can take a better look. You also want to take a look at where the sun is on. So the sun is shining this way. Uh, so it's better to phone your footage on what the sun is shining on rather than against it. Otherwise, your footage is going to be washed out. So I'm gonna take a picture. I want to take it this way. Okay. Your first major decision. It's just like what you want in the picture. So here, I'm gonna focus on the tree with the people in the background. And then I want to focus on my shutter speed setting. So rule of thumb is to double the amount of brains for seconds that you have. So I like to film a 24 frames per second, and the closest shutters beat setting is 50. Okay. Nix is the opera Sure, setting, which is amount of light that you allow from the lens into the camera sensor. So I'm adjusting it here too. 97.1. I just look at the screen. Teoh, get the feedback, and then I can focus on the eyes. So and you want to keep the eyes so as low as you can while still keeping Ah, enough light in your pictures. So we have a nice so off 100 aperture off that 1000.4. So I just just the eyes. So because I can't bring the amateur any lower, So Apertura 4.0, I s 0 200 And then we can focus on zooming in digitally and then focusing on the detail. So once we have a focus shot off the tree ready to film and press record another way, you can. We only have one person in five. You focus on something that's the same distance away from the camera. Uh, good chances are that it's also gonna be focused on me. If I'm standing beside the tree standing behind it, I'm gonna be blurred out. There are two basic movements in filming. First we have the pan, which is a left to right or right to left. Movement on a tip is to do it slow and steady on a tripod. Second basic movement is called a tilt, which is ah, high, too low or a load, a hive movement and again slowed study on the tripod for best results 8. Editing in Final Cut Pro X: by everyone. This is Greg Hung from Sheikhly Option. Today I'm gonna take you through the process of making a travel that you using video editing software called Final Cut Pro X. So this is the software that that I use. I don't get Pro X version 10.1 point one It's, ah, professional software, and the current version has being accepted by a large part of the professional video community now, and it's what I use on, but I really like it. So to begin off, you should have your memory card after you've taking it out of your camera. On the next step is to organize your video footage. So to start off, you should organize all the your favorite video clips and this sort of mental folder. Then, having ready, then you're gonna want to create project in final Cut Pro X. Now I'll just back up a little bit on Duh Couple libraries. Library is Ah, it's in your feature final cup Rolex and all it is is just It's just another folder that holds projects and events on. Uh, it's useful for separating different projects. For example, you might have one for personal use and one for for clients. So anyhow, let's move on. So let's start off by creating a project. So projects equivalent to video on creating a video is like a project. So there, so the projects make was called feel thin. If selected fault events have been pretty my happy that sculpture often. So I'm not set up there. Formats leave a 10. 80 p HD which cover most most of your environments. I'll leave it here. I do 23.98 And that gives a cinematic look, so we'll leave it there on, um, Apple Core as 42 should be fine for most cases. So it okay on now we have a project. No. Next step is Teoh. Bring the video clips over into the job friend event. So this is an event here, so we don't have anything right now. Okay? So I'll just show you the process to move some media into the event. So down, order the music file from soundcloud dot com. So depending what? You're making the video before you want to make sure that you have the proper rights for the music. So this is MP three here. I'm just going to be dragged into friendly that right? So you can see here that follows inside the events. Which means I could use it in the video on now, just, uh, movie file. So press the space bar to preview it. Simply drag that over No suggests, um, with the new clips that you create, you've already decided these are video clips that I you know I want to have in my video. But you might This I want see, after you start editing it that you don't want it. Or do you want two friend that video, which is fine. You can do that. Insides final. OK, so now we've got set up, and now we're going to start working on on the video. So I always begin the video off at this point by putting the music into the timeline. So this area is is the timeline. Okay, So once in timeline, um, you can free you by pressing the space far, and this will run that line. You see the numbers running over here, Not this. That's the time when I call the time code. Okay. So you can't see anything in this screen. I call this the preview screen. So if I drag this video clip into the timeline, we'll see that you can see the video clip in middle school. Now press the space bar. I don't play through the video with the music. Okay, so that covers the basics on next video Clipper and go into more detail that, um, now you have the knowledge to get set up, and next year clip will cover some go deeper into the editing. It's great coming from Chic Lodge Productions, and this is part two of making it travel. To do so. I've just added a logo from my company. It's just a an image fall so you could bring images sounds on video clips by simply dragging them from finder into the Events folder. Okay, so the next step is to bring the remainder of the video files that you've already she rated , so you could just, uh, most shift click to accept the mall. It's a short time, then taken into the event what takes sometimes take a little bit of time. Take a look at the background tests, see statuses so slowly falling 41. That's okay, we think. Still still preview clips and you can do that by just mouths over on crossing the space bar . Or you can just move the mouse over just to give you a feel for the So before you begin while you're curating clips, I recommend you start visualizing what you want the video to. So I tried Teoh, give it a bit of a story, uh, something that you can, you know, if you didn't have a lot of words to explain it with pictures or video clips from tell a story. So that usually means that there's a logical sequence from getting the, um, most parts are loving. Add too much audio from the actual video clips. I'm gonna have remain sound coming from the music phone, so I'm gonna show you a short park to meet the sound rather than having to do it manually. If you were to do it manually, I want to do this for every single video you're about to highlight it by looking over right clicking on touching the video so that would be very time consuming. You hear the music, but the sounds taken up OK, so here's how we removed the sound in back. So let's highlight all that. All the clips here. You just do that by clicking and dragging. See this puppet talking? So I might want include that one. So press commanding quick just to select that, uh, that's it. So how do you take the sound notes On the right hand side? There's a already upset. So could that. So that's gonna give me all the, um the, uh anything I could do for the whole all the audio, anything do for all the clips. So this unchecked there, that's just gonna all the sound. Well, all right, so I just you go ahead and do that on. I'm gonna take some time to put together this trouble video. These parts gonna take a while, so I'm just gonna pass board it. And then when we come back on some things on, uh, see you in a bit I don't break hung from cheaply Productions on Welcome, Teoh. Third part of making a travel video. So just a quick recap We brought our video clips that we've curated into our events over here broadens and music on. Uh, I started to think about this story on, uh, course. The music is very important as it drives the pace of the video and also, uh, freaks the mood. So I wanted to trade in that a slower pace, his talent, ill funnies. It's a slow, relaxed pace and also wanted to choose some local music. So I have some time with the music on our instruments. So I went to decided your music. I recommend putting that as the first thing in your timeline, so just pop it. You could just drag it from your event over. It's a timeline on Once you've got your music, then you can start dropping your video clips into the timeline, and then you're gonna You might want to make some adjustments. So the video clip so it makes, like, make it into a logical story. So the video makes sense if you some analyses watching. So to give you a better example, you know, start playing it. Okay, so, um, so I think one with earlier video clip should provide the context and transition into the next video club. So the first video here is the bus ride to let you know, never driving there and then for video clip. What is one of the earlier video thoughts that I did, which is once you get off the bus and you can see a overview of you from so you can decide how you want to order it. But, uh, that's what I recommend on did nothing to think about is that each video clip should be doing something for the video rather than just putting video clips in there for the sake of putting it. You also, uh, this sounds usually most songs between two four minutes long. So you also want to make your clips are in sync with length of music. Okay, on, uh so we have three different layers off clips in the timeline. Here we have music and we have the middle ear of video clips on the top layer. So the very top layer will take presidents onto the screen on this seven street that So if I cross the space bar, let's see me talking. And then we'll I see, came to the top video clips in the take presidents. So you can also do that with tax, which I'll do later on on. So once you've got the order that you once on, uh, they're happy with story next thing you may want to do is just fine tuning with the coloring and sound So you can see here that the to see the sound waves in these two video two sound clips and this sound clip has more defined waves because sounds louder you see here in this sound But if I highlighted and I go over to expect that volume is a little bit lower minus on this card is at zero. So put on a pair of earphones. Teoh, listen to your video. It is. Sometimes you can catch these things with speakers in your lap. Okay, so just do something coloring here. So I'm gonna find this is a good because on the similar on De. So just do that by highlighting them. Then once there, then I can apply some coloring as a group. Do that by going over. So they expected deeper so you can make adjustments to the saturation, the color. So we got shoot my video, I use a particular fall, which allows me more flexibility when I'm editing the video, which is now when you look at them now, the color looks a bit plants, but now the flexibility to do more doing the editing things. And I'll tell you that that so I created a preset where you could just use presets that come with software. But more saturation students have been implied by the percent of salt back. Uh, I want to play some sharpening. So we've been seeing here, Inspector second, you see happening a bit slow right now. Working part. But you can see here. That has been a Okay, So why don't you go ahead and put together the videos and sound in your timeline on the last step we're gonna do is, uh, by some texts and credits. Take care of the publishing, everyone. It's Greg Hung from Secret House productions, and this is part for the last part of making a travel video. So, Teoh recap. We've now put all the clips and our videos together on, and now we've, uh, adjustable sound coloring or color grading that we want. So we got the color, and now it's time to put the finishing touches. Uh, what? What I mean by that is you can put a tax on top so you can just drag, um, from the text right here. You can drag, um, your mouse over to this area, and you could put your texts on a layer above video clips. So this is what it looks like. So I decided to put some texts in a way that it doesn't interfere too much. And it goes at the appropriate time. Uh, with the doctor on, uh, every video should have, uh, beginning title final here, so have also ending. All right, one type. I just wanted to include a zit. You video becomes too long. Uh, you may not be able to see all of it. We're in a zoomed out view right now, so you can change that over here. I like to use commands on plus reminders. No. You ready to? Great. Uh, so go to quality share. Doing Masters Final grade. A movie file which is compatible with YouTube. It's just good to have a master. So you take with settings on. These are the most common settings that you want, Teoh. Higher quality version. Select this one. This is a pretty common by quality, sending crazy, much larger file. So we're most purposes, especially on the sharing on the internet. Age point to six boys just fine. One good thing about final cup for is that not warning? Another off the syrup. So I'm really happy with on I don't want any more up on YouTube. So todo set up for the first time, just go ahead and start the process here. So these are options for the video. It's like resolution impression in the category. Nossa beauties. Actually you upside your head. Except that on public aan s So that's it. 9. Extras new ending: That black metal horizontal block underneath the tripod head is known as a glider or dolly. And I use it with my tripod setup to add some movement to my shots. And I like the production value that it adds. I warn you it's a little bit heavy, but you can get lighter ones and you can use for travel. So you can see in the shot coming up here how it adds that nice cinematic field. That's a way to add some extra care shot. Because the DSLR mice are not very good. One easy way to upgrade the quality of your videos is by upgrading the microphone. This is a shock done pro Mike, made by road at plugs into the stereo phone jack and touches to the hot shoe your camera. And the sound is a lot better and it's easy to travel with. Many of the scenes with me talking have been recorded using this microphone. There's many techniques to do a time-lapse. This is a technique that works for me. So you want to attach your receiver to the top on the hot shoe, set it to channel one. Make sure it's plugged in on the side. And then set your camera to aperture priority, which is AV. This will adjust the lighting automatically while you're taking your pictures. Next, such your lens to manual. And then make sure your cameras in picture mode you'll be taking pictures and check the image quality to make sure that it's set to large. You can get away with medium as well, but large will give you more flexibility on your motifs also selected to the same channel. So 199 shots as the highest. And then your interval, which will set it to how often, and we'll take pictures. Okay, Now the next step is to go out there with your tripod and take at least three to 400 shots. I like to spend about at least 38 minutes. I set my interval of four seconds, so it'll take pictures every four seconds. And then I need to press the button on my remote after it takes 99 shots, just the reset it. So in this time-lapse here, I've got about over 500 pictures. And so what I've done is I've got my images on my computer, created the new projects in Final Cut Pro. And, and I brought my images into an event. And I've got them highlighted. And what I'm gonna do is now bring those 581 images into the timeline. Okay? So once you've got them in the timeline, you're going to want to change the duration, okay? Set it to one. So that's the smallest amount that you can set it to. So once you do that, they're all going to collapse. And you're going to get really small clips. So this took me about 38 minutes to shoot, but it's going to work out to about 24 seconds worth of a time-lapse. The next step is to remove those black borders on both sides. So what we'll do is group all the clips into a compound clip. And so we can easily do that by highlighting all the clips, right-clicking and selecting compound clip. So that'll let us apply changes to all the clips at once. And what we wanna do is just increase the scale from about a 100 to think about and 125, 130. You can judge this based on looking at the picture preview to see what you need. And then the next step is to make any color adjustments if you need. I like to add some saturation because I usually shoot it with low saturation. And then the next step, if you're happy with your time-lapse, is to export it to a video file. So once it's a video file, the time-lapse will render very smoothly. And you can bring that file into one of your other video projects if you want to use it in there. Okay. So that's how we do a time-lapse. So you're finally you finish your video and now you're ready to share it. So I'm going to cover sharing by dVD through Final Cut Pro X. So what that will do is create a IMG or an image file. And you can take that image file and then use it in some burning software to create your JVD. What I prefer to do is to create the video file. Share master file. And that will create a dot MOV file. And that will give you some more options. Okay, you're not quite there yet to create your DVD, you're going to need some additional things. You're going to need a DVD burner. You're going to need a DVD or Blu-ray disc if you want to create a Blu-ray and you need DVD burning software. So I use toast titanium 11, and that allows me to burn a Blu-ray, a DVD or an HD DVD. Okay, So I'll just cover an HD DVD. So you simply drag the dot MOV file into the software and you click burn. So the process is the same for creating a DVD or Blu-ray. Okay, now we're going to cover publishing a video file to YouTube directly from the YouTube site. So to do that, you need a YouTube account. You need to be logged on and you click Upload, and then you simply find the video file. In this case it's dot MOV and you drag it in. So while you're waiting for the upload finishes a good time to fill in information about the video. You can put in tags about the video. And if you're not ready to publish it and you want to preview it first, you can change public, the private. Otherwise just hit Publish. After the video is published, you'll have an option to share the video through email or different social networks. Okay? It's also nice to do a custom thumbnail to give you a video, a nice customized luck. Hi. 10. Travel video gear edit: We're going to start off talking about the camera I use. I use the Canon 6D. I just bought it last year. At the beginning of last year. I was using a Canon 70 before. And I wanted to take advantage of the Canon 6D because it was a full frame camera. And it was marketed as an entry-level full-frame camera. But this camera is still not cheap. It's about $2700 with the body and the lens that comes with it. And the lens that comes with it is a really good lens. It's a canon 24 dash 15 millimeter. F4 IS. And this is the same lens that they use on the Canon 5D Mark II, which is the camera that a lot of people recognize as the gold standard for SLR cameras. Now the Canon 5D Mark 3 goes for about $4 thousand. So you're paying $1300 more for the Canon 5D Mark 3. I've written a webpage that goes into detail about the differences between the 60, the 5D Mark 3, and how you can use a Canon 60 and 70 together to balance each other's strengths and weaknesses out. Anyhow, the Canon 60, I love this camera, it's my work horse and lens that comes with it is just a strong combination. The Canon 60 is a really awesome for photos. All I need to do is set it on auto. I said the lens to auto and get the autofocus points, the red squares and I snap it and the photos are just amazing, visible. Ferrari, who is a well-known photographer and filmmaker. I went to his blog on his gear page, and I'm pretty sure his comment was that the Canon 6D takes better photos and the 5D Mark three. So take a look at that. The Canon 6D is a very good for video. It does have some problems with patterns known as Maury. So if you're panning and you've got a pattern in the background and it's going to be distorted. That's a well-known issue and that's something that I just live with. The canon 60s a lot better in low light and the Canon 70. And other than that, there's some additional features on the Canon 60. There's a WiFi feature you can use to link it up with your phone if you get the app useful for taking remote pictures. Or you can also use the app to help you focus heavier. Only have a one man band and have to focus it on yourself for video. And what else is a GPS feature on that? I don't use it too much. But the Canon 60, a very happy with it. It's my work horse. I don't use the Canon 70 that much because I prefer using the 60. Okay, let's talk about the canon 24 dash one of five lens. It's a really good range. It's wide enough and it goes long enough that while I was traveling. And then it need to change my lens out. That being said, I'm going to talk about my, how I've fallen back in love with the 50 mil lens. This lens is good, call the picture. It's got stabilization on it with the IS, That's what it means. And so that's useful if you don't want to carry around and tripod and you want to hand shoot. You may still need to do some stabilization video editor. But I can tell the difference when I use my other lenses with on the Canon 60. And it does make a noticeable difference. Love this lens, and I use it about 90 percent of the time around there. The next item on or in my bag is a GoPro action camera. And the GoPro, I use it for aerial filming. Use it for filming on the hood of a car. I use a for filming that involves. Underwater, like scuba diving or in, or if I want to video surfing scene cameras so versatile. And God says, it's something that you, if you're a serious filmmaker, it's a great tool to have in your bag. The drawbacks is that it's not good in low light and it's got a fixed lens and the lens that comes with it is wide. So you can't get up close. But if slot, as long as you know what the GoPro is good for, It's a great tool to have in your bag. Okay, Let's talk about the canon 70. Canon 70 was my first camera, and I was quite happy with it just for photos and videos. The 60 and 70, both film HD resolution. And big difference I find between 1760 is at 70 is not full frame. It's a crop sensor. So it's not gonna be as wide of a look for all the lenses that you put on there. You have to times it by a factor of about 1.6. So a 50 mil lens ends up being closer. I don't know the math is right now, but I prefer using the 50 ml on a Canon 60. The other thing is that the Canon 6D performs a lot better and darker situations. I noticed that the Canon 70 has a lot of noise on my night-time footage. So I almost never use a Canon 74 nighttime photo. January. Next item, we got him a bag is the speed light. Speed light was more of an impulse purchase. I use it for photos, especially indoors. When the ceiling is flat. I like to bounce the light off the ceiling to get those really good money shots in north. Lately I've been using the paddle light and I used for video. It gives me more control over the lighting, but the speed light, it does give you that really professional look, especially for indoor photos. Next item is xa to kina 11 16 lens, f 2.8. So this lens is only InDesign for crop sensor. I use it for the cans 70 to get those really, really wide shots. And I think the most notable thing I've done with this is the sheet for Yacc productions time-lapse from Taipei of type a one-to-one from elephant mountain. I use this lens for that timelapse. It can capture a lot in its view because it's so wide. So that's good for that purpose. Okay. Cannon, 50 millimeter F1 point for lens. What? The Canon 70. I didn't like it because it wasn't wide enough. But now with the Canon 6D, this lens is awesome for getting that shallow depth of field look, especially on photos. It's a little bit trickier to focus, but you get some amazing pictures with the setup. For a video. It's a great setup in low light situations and performs better than the 24, 10, 5. So the 50 months light and has some useful benefits. Okay, the next piece is the canon. A canon, but the GoPro suction cup mounts and the casing. The casing comes with it. It's awesome. It's durable and you need it to attach some of the mounts like a suction cup mount. Suction cup mount has been really useful for things like mounting the GoPro to the hood of the car. That's strong enough to keep it there. And if you're creative, you can use a suction cup mount on surfaces like glass, plastic and some metallic surfaces. I use a for scuba diving footage mostly and filming from the car. Okay. Now we're moving on to my primary tripod, which is a Manfrotto. This tripod has served me very well. I I use it for putting my SLR on top and I also put my dollar on top, although the neck of the tripod did break early last year. But I managed to just replace the neck of the tripods to bring down the costs at me shipped all the way from Italy. Generally, it's well-made. With my current setup, it's probably a little bit too heavy. Too heavy for my Dolly and cameras setup. But it does the job for now. In Taiwan, I bought a second tripod. I wanted a tripod I could carry around and just have something light. I don't want that had lag around and heavy tripod all day. So for 1000 and T, I picked up a pair of sticks from roleplay. Basically, this tripod is super light. It fits in a bag and I can swing it around my shoulder and it's strong enough to hold an SLR. Okay. Next item is paddle light or light panel. This attaches to the hot shoe on the SLR. So that's on top of the SLR. There's like a metal bracket. You can slide things on. And so this light panel, you can slide it on, on top. I love this accessory. It's great for getting that extra lighting. You can use it for videos, for photos. And it's really bright, really powerful. And you can adjust it to change directions. The next item here is a Mac book pro 15 inch Retina with 16 gigabytes of RAM. This is my livelihood. This laptop is awesome. I was using an iMac before, but I needed something more mobile, but with enough power, spy kid, still video edit. And this laptop was the answer. Does everything that I needed to do, it's solid. And with the 16 gigabytes of memory, it's more than powerful enough to video edit. The only thing is that the storage space. I got the low amount of flash storage as is expensive. So I purchased a thunderbolt hard drive from the sea with a thunderbolt connection. And that allows me to extend the storage that I have because those videos take up so much space that you're surely going to need to extend the storage and getting this external hard drive setup is the better value option. Next item is a road shock. I'm Mike. The sound that the camera has out of the factory is not very good. So the shock I'm Mike attaches on the hot shoe. It's got a stereo pin, plug it in and it improves the sound a lot. It's good for interviews or if you're just talking from the camera. There's better audio setups. The Zune is a good setup, but the road is just, it's nice and versatile. You can just take it out while you're traveling if you need to do an interview or travelogue. That's what it's good for. The next item here is a Interval. Interval meter. Basically it's just a remote control that you need to do a time-lapse with your SLR camera. And I got some third party ones, not official canon ones. It's fine. Does what it needs to do. And let's move on. Okay. The next item is a hard drive. With all of those videos, I needed a good, reliable hard-drive minus from G technology, I believe if I got a four terabyte hard drive, it's got USB 3, not fast enough to work off for video, but what all use this for is to store my videos. And it's a nice plug-in the plug sockets, so it's not good, not very portable. So good for long-term storage. The next item we have here is a Blue Yeti USB microphone. And that's what I'm using to record my voice right now. So what do you think? The reviews are pretty good for this as the quality, good value? Usb microphone. There is version you can get, that's one step hop the user and say, I think it's XLR connection. Anyhow, I use this to do what I'm doing now. Voiceovers. It can also be used for podcasting and looks really big, really nice, sleek design. And yeah, it's pretty good, very easy to use. I just plug and play. Okay, next item is a Atlas Dolly. And I use this to attach my tripod head and SLR to get those cinematic shots. Really heavy, but it's a good quality product. Okay, we're gonna move on to the bag. This bag is awesome for putting my Dolly, my tripod, and I'll fit all the other accessories in there. I like this bag. It's made by Briggs and Riley. It's good because it has a push out handle and it's got wheels. You absolutely need that because this is a really heavy bag with all that equipment inside. I don't take my camera bag with my camera body and lenses. I don't leave it in that bag. I bring them on board with me where I can keep it with me on the plane and keep an eye on it almost at all times. Next item is the actual primary camera bag. I've probably grown this bag. When I got the second camera and more lenses. Somehow I managed to squeeze the mall in here. And this camera bags good. Just for one camera does its job. It's a little bit beat up, but it's good because it's got pockets on both sides so you can put a drink, but you're going to need food, outdoing footage and an umbrella, and enough pockets for your memory cards and whatnot. 11. Editing gopro video using NO template: Hi, This is Greg Hung, and welcome to how to edit using GoPro Studio 2.5 with a blank templates. We're gonna be using footage shot from a GoPro five. You don't necessarily need to own the camera, but this is a good option for people without video editing software. As you can see, we're using the latest version here, and you can use the software on Mac as well as Windows, and it's optimized for a GoPro footage. So if you're just shooting video with a GoPro than this video is probably gonna be of interest to you, we're not gonna be using the templates. So like I said, we're gonna be using a blank template, a blank canvas, and we're gonna do everything from how to load your media, how to get music, how to actually get to step to where we're making the video edits and deciding on how we're gonna place those videos, how to get into editing the specific clips, trimming some transitions, color presets. And then we're gonna go through an actual export people in the actual online course. How dhoni sure GoPro creativity are going to get access to this project file as well as Eclipse. If you really want to follow along with exactly what you're seeing in this video, all right, so let's dive right in. So we're looking at the video here and have ready place the clips in the timeline. But if you're just starting the video from scratch, you need to go to Step One, and then you need Teoh. Import new files so you can click over there on the plus button and then find the folder with your video clips or your time lapses, and then you can bring them into GoPro Studio is gonna take some time. But as you can see here and gives us the details off the clips, whether they're 10 80 p the frame rates and then from the left column, we can actually play the clips. And then we can decide on how to trim them from this area, using Mark in and Mark outpoints by moving that diamond shaped thing on the timeline. But personally, I prefer to do it in Step two, but it just depends on your personal preference. So the first step is to go ahead and bring these clips into GoPro Studio after you brought your clips in. The next step is we need to add them to the conversion lists to convert. Why do we need to convert them? Well, the simple and short answer is that this is going to allow you to added the GoPro clips a little bit easier and faster, rather than if you would added this in other video editing software while retaining the quality. Okay, according to Go Pro, Um, I'm not actually sure that's 100% true, but anyway, so go ahead and bring them in. I would just recommend converting them. Once you've selected the clips to converts, you'll see the progress on the right hand side off how the clips are doing. Once they're converted, you'll see a done status beside that clip and once that's finish, were then ready to move on to the next step, which is editing. Okay, we are ready to start editing and GoPro's studio, so go ahead and click Step two so the files that you converted should be available on the left hand side. Now. I would recommend also importing some music at this point so you can go ahead and click on media selected MP three, and that's one of the first choices that you have for when you start your video. So some ideas were to get music are soundcloud and I like Sisi mixture dot warg because it's a higher quality music bank, and you can choose music for commercial as well as non commercial use. The clip I'm using for music here is actually by a soundcloud orders, and I've paid him a fee to be able to use his entire album catalog. So you're welcome. Teoh. Use him as well if you pay him the fee. I think it was about $15 but you can select whatever music track you like once you have the music. What I like to do is think about what type of story do I want. You don't have to make this into a complicated film production, but what it would do. Just think logically. What is the sequence of events? How does the story unfold? For example, over here we have me with the camera shooting some video with the camera, and then Ryan goes out on his motorbike. He goes to the beach, and then he started surfing, and then we see a nice sunset. So I mean, obviously you don't want the video to not make sense. So depending on how your story went, think about how you want to lay it out. Once you have that down, you can select your music track if you haven't already, and then just place it at the bottom of the timeline. So if you look at the timeline, we see there's an area for video texts and then theres a microphone icon. So what we're gonna do is just place that in the bottom of the timeline, and you can see in the right hand side that we have the option to change. The audio levels faded in and faded out, and you could just lay that audio track in the timeline. Okay, we're now looking at the third clip. So on the third clip now, I'm starting to look at things like the color presets. We have options change the color just like instagram. So for this video, I'm using a four by three. Why preset? Which is gonna put the top and bottom borders to give it a more cinematic look and then amusing candy color. On top of that, you can use more than one preset. You also have the option and do a number of things. So here I'm slowing the clip down a little bit, 54% just to add a little bit off slow motion. Now there's a lot of different options that you can use, but I'm just gonna be mostly looking at presets and speed for some. So here I'm slowing that down the clip, even Mawr to 38%. The flux is a proprietary format that's gonna make slowing down things with go pro footage even smoother. As you can see of the option, Teoh, adjust the picture of him or change the exposure and the saturation on the sharpness. It just depends how long you want to spend on a video project. Firstly, I don't want to spend all day on a one minute video clip, so see how much time you have and just do the best that you can, depending on how much time you have. So let's move on to the next clip. Here we have the surfboard and on the surfboard here. I'm just going to apply the candy color presets on before by three wides. Nothing special here, except I trim the clip just to include the portion where there's so one actually assuming in front of Ryan. Okay, we're onto the next clip here, and this is a good example where you may need to make and adjustments to the clips picture settings. So here I turned down the saturation a little bit and bumped up the exposure because the candy color preset made everything dark so you can decide how you want to just that. Sometimes you're shooting video, different lighting situations so the presets not going apply the same for all your clips. So that's just an example where you can make an individual clip adjustment. Okay, so let's look at titles over here. So if you click title in the Left column, it's going to create something that looks like another clip. But this time, once you highlighted, you can actually type in the words that you want. And then, if you click the spot that says aerial black semi two points, you can make adjustments to the font size what type of font you want, and there's an area on timeline that's in the middle. In between the audio and the video kind of like a sandwich, so that's where you would drag the title. So I'm gonna show you the titles that I made for this video actually created two titles because they're two different fawn styles and there laid on top of each other. Okay, so you can see one says they're GoPro and the other is going to say she triage productions , all calm for slash GoPro course, which is actually where the full online course for GoPro 3 to 5 is located. So check it out if you haven't already. So now that we've got her text down, we've got all the finishing touches that we need to have in the video project. Except you can adds more minor things like transitions. So if you look at the timeline there, you'll see a plus between video clips. So if you click that plus, it's just gonna make a smooth transition between scenes. My recommendation would not be toe overuse them, but using when there's a change of scenery. So So from the mortar mike to Ryan walking on the beach and then from being in the ocean to that sunset. Time lapse is where I would use a transition. Okay, The last step is to export this video. And when it comes to exports, that's pretty simple. There's just a couple of different options that we need to select. Okay, Once you're ready to exports, click on step three and then you have some final choices to make. To make things easy can just export. It was a YouTube video. You can see down by the bottom there some choices for different presets. You can see how long the video's gonna be under duration as well as false eyes. If you have any flux, you can check that box. I tried it out. It looked like it was gonna take a really long time, so I didn't end up doing it for this video. But we have 7 20 p 10. 80 p, which I think would be the most common. And then you can actually choose a custom video which is gonna lie to get the maximum quality. So h 264 you see, at the bottom there is a very common compressed video, but still good quality. So if you want maximum quality can just change that quality dial up all the way as long as you don't mind a very large file size and frame rate, you can adjust their. I think that GoPro Studios morning off to detect the frame rate or the ultimate frame rate . And then when you're ready, just select the name of the fall away. You want to save it and click exports, All right, so that wraps up our entire workflow for creating a video GoPro 2.5 with a blank template with Go pro five footage. So to recap, we imported the video clips. We converted them to GoPro's formats to allow for easier editing. We then selected the clips that we wanted, and then we trim them. We selected music, and then we laid down the music. In the timeline, we had an idea of the storyboard, and then we started to fine tune how we wanted a place or video story. And then we started to hone in on mawr fine tune adjustments like free sets which are adjustments to the color, any transitions and then finally titles. So I hope you enjoyed that video and it helps you quickly get set up in creating great videos. So check out the course at Sheikh Leoz Productions, all calm for slash GoPro for Mawr video lessons that apply anywhere from GoPro three to go pro five and we're going to go out in the field and teach in different ways of capturing great footage.
