Above the Monties

 Drone work from our recent trip to the Monties. I even put music to it!  mate did really well with the Mavic pro, considering he hasn't had it long, I did the editing.

Was certainly good while we were there

 Bit blowy from the east the first two days and the trip over, then anywhere from good to perfect for the rest, then crap for the trip home.  So it goes, we survived.

he managed it ok, obviously

 he had only just got it to follow him in that last sequence, on the last afternoon. Still learning how to use it. -edit-just asked him, he was catching it. He still has all his fingers, so successfully. Mavics are a lot harder than Phantoms, with their big stands underneath.

Basic program for Gopro editing

Tue, 2019-06-25 16:45

 Personally, I would use Gopro Studio. Most of my earlier stuff is done on it, pretty simple to use , free, good intro into video editing. You can do all the basics, including adding sound and titles. It doesn't require as fast a computer as Premiere , but you will need an i5.

And it's just cost me a lot of money...

Wed, 2019-06-26 21:34

   went out and bought my own drone. Mavic Pro platinum More fly pack,cheaper now the Mavic Pro 2 is out.  Record Ningaloo and Winderabandi Point before the life we knew there  is gone forever--not optimistic about the new appeal, but I'll still contribute.

It really makes you appreciate what a magic place we have here in the west and we all must do whatever it takes to preserve it.
