kwillo Leave Protune off, it's too much hassle unless you really know what you are doing.

judoant So I have started shooting some footage and I have a question about Protune. Should I have this on or off? From what I see the footage looks much better with it off because when it is on it looks flat and I reat that the richness is restored in editing.

This seems to advanced for what I am trying to do. I just want a compilation of my season. I dont want to spend all day making colors look right.

Fair enough. I used to cut dialog. I spent hours removing breaths and mouth clicks and splicing syllables together to create words that were never said.

Now that is the worst thing ever!

Quicktime issues? Could be anything. Down res them to something smaller perhaps when exporting to QT.

This is why I quit working as an assistant editor. IT SUCKS. Seriously. Editing is the most soul sucking tedious shit you can do, and you're not even getting paid. Quit while you're ahead.

Is there anyway to open files in imovie without importing them?

oneshot unless you are making PRO movies i suggest dropping your shooting rez to 720.. face it, all you are likely to do for a while is post videos on youtube, right? 720 looks great still and is still HD and your computer and software will handle it much much much better than 1080.. its a huge step jumping up and working with 1080..

mixie just digitize the footage in to your edit rig, it will take real time but way faster then USB xfer and no importing into iMovie. You should be able to load clips directly into what ever edit software you are using.


When you load the footage into your editing software don't just load it in as one long piece. Log your files and skip digitizing the crap you know you don't want. Create new files for each chunk you think you're going to want to use and name them appropriately. It also helps to keep the naming consistent in some way so the files line up in an organized fashion in the bin.

"01 Park Lap 1" "02 park lap 2" "03 major wipeout on jump" etc....then when you go to edit it will be much much simpler with all your takes logged and neatly organized in your bin! If you want to get all OCD you can even take notes!




man, I so need to invent some sort of digital slate for go pros!! There probably already is one!
