Fun day today. We need another storm or two to finish burying all of the rocks. Still lots of rocks and sharks out there. Good to ride with you today and plenty more of that this season.

Nicely done! Except for how jealous this makes me of those conditions.

Is it pretty easy to use Live Movie Maker?

What setting did you have your GoPro on?

Anything else you can comment on, regarding the creation of the video (was it simple, time consuming, have any hiccups, did you have to convert any files, etc.)?

GoPro was on 1080p\30 I think next time I will try 720p\60 since it should make slow motion much smoother and possibly speed up the video creation process but that might not be the case since 720\60 actually creates larger files that 1080p but each frame has less data so who knows.

Took me about 5 hours to figure out how live movie maker works and import and clip\trim\paste all the gopro clips together to make a single video out of 10 video clips, add music ect but it's very simple once you get the hang of it. App seems stable even with a 2 gigs of video loaded in, haven't experienced any crashing. Just wish I had my quad core desktop to do the number crunching.

My dual core Windows Laptop took about an hour to compile the 1080p version of the video(5 minute video) and it pegs both CPU's to 100% while it's trans-coding(converting) from MP4 format to WMV format.

For some reason the music keeps getting screwed up on the 1080p version of the video, gonna try to delete all teh music tonight and re-add to see if that resolves.

All in all for a free program it works great and is very intuitive even for someone like me who has never used a video editor before.

More tips,

1.If you plan on using music from iTunes you HAVE to convert it to WMA or MP3(to strip the DRM\Copy protection) in order keep all kinds of crazy unpredictable shit\crashing from happening with the final video output of Live Movie maker.

2. If you want to post in 720p\1080p on youtube you have to convert the WMA files to an MP4(H.264). Live Movie maker only outputs in WMV video format

3. I use Audials Tunebite to convert(and strip DRM from iTunes music) itunes music files to WMA(Windows media audio) and convert the final rendered video to MP4(H.264) so it's HD youtube friendly.

4. DO NOT use your computer AT ALL while the movie rendering\converting is in process for either Live Movie Maker or Tunebite, this will cause weird shit with you final video, like speeding up slowing down video sound\music sync issues.

Tubebite is well worth paying the 30$ for such a useful tool to EASILY deal with audio\video transcodeing and conversions and it can be easily installed on 2+ computers like my laptop and desktop(I don't condone pirating cheap software)

Their is multiple free solutions out there to convert the audio and video but many are unreliable and a PITA to install\use.

If you saw the version I posted on facebook today you can easily see these problems a I was trying to work and render\convert\compress video at the same time....bad idea.

I'm uploading the final stable, synced, non jankey version to youtube right now, will post when when it's done uploading here in about an hour.

Finally was 820 MB and Youtube processing took FOREVER

BrightonFinal.mp4 - YouTube

In my hurry I have the music off time by a few seconds and the stupid credits flyby at least now the video is stable and running at the right speed


Feedback on video improvements are appreciated


OK I take that back still a little wierd but whatever, I think I messed with the source video speed to much before conversion. To fix I'd probably have to start the project over in Live Movie maker, I did so much experimentation with settings who knows what I screwed up. Will try again next powder day but at least now I have a process down that I think\hope works.
