I had some footage I took during the PPJ10Miler sitting around, that I’ve meant to do something with.
- Stabilization is hard! especially on iPhone video, where there isn’t a large forgiving field of view like a GoPro. It took an hour to stabilize the 3 minutes of footage I had, on an i7 processor with 12G of RAM.
- I scream way too loud for being a camera person.
- I still had some moire develop on the 1080p video, so I took it down to 720p at a drastically different frame rate (25p). I ended up doing 4 different renders trying to find something that worked. 60fps helps with the source of this problem, but is a booger on battery power.
- I should do some test stuff with the different modes of stabilize some time. Cool blog post about it for me to digest: http://whoismatt.com/bestwarpstabilizersettings/ In my case, I went with “Position only” to preserve frame space, and removed cropping. Yep, more research needed..
Anyhow. 10 miler is a fun race. Its really nice to see the leaders of the pack – usually I only hear about them on websites and stuff like that. And they have nice technical shirts. Definitely recommend.
