I haven’t bought Davinci Resolve, but I’m tempted. I’m also seriously tempted to buy the GoPro Fusion, it looks like one hell of a 360° camera. But both are expensive and in my hands… it’d be like using an canon to kill a fly.
So I’ve taken it upon myself to learn Davinci Resolve as much as possible before I consider buying either, there’s no point in psending money on tools I don’t know how to use, and the free version of resolve works well enough for my purposes.
But wait, there’s more. Last week (10 days ago) I quit smoking. For the most part it’s not been bad as I thought it would be, though I am using an E-Cig, Logic Curv is my weapon of choice, and so far yes, it’s worked. There have been some moments of weakness, my sister smokes and I’ve had a couple off her. The good news is that those two fags really made me want to throw up, tasted absolutely foul and made me cough for about an hour each.
Anywhoo, in this video I’ve done some colour correcting (the hero 6 is excellent but I always record the colour as flat), so yes I’m currently still learning about colour grading, I’ve also accidentally created a hyperlapse (I think) by trying to convert a video to timelapse.
I recently bought a Garmin Virb and shorlty after I bought a GoPro hero 6, these let me show speed, inclination and distance data amongst other things. I found the video to be far too compressed with the Garmin, though it does store a huge amount of data, the video from the Gopro is far better but it contains less data. But all the important stuff is there.
This is the GoPro at 1440P, though it can do 4K 60, but even my monster PC struggles at that high a resolution, 4K 30 is excellent, but I find 2.7P 60 to be really nice and hardly a downgrade on clarity.
This is the Garmin Virb, the video is nowhere near as crisp and clear, but man it’s easy to use and has incredibly well rounded software.
I went out for a ride yesterday, it was such a gorgeous spring morning I just had to. In all I rode 25 miles, a trip to the farm shop in the morning, and this spectacular ride to the local wind farm and a night time blast around the local reservoir.
sadly the wind farm is still closed to the public, they’ve just upgraded the turbine and I think they’re still being tested, they’ll open it up soon enough ??
This ride through Wainstalls was gorgeous though and if the weather holds I’ll be back again then over to Jerusalem farm, drop down into Todmorden, then back home.
This is an early video from my collection, and also it was just a few weeks after buying the Carrera Crossfire-E so I was still unfit and struggling with the hills.
You’ll see some gorgeous Yorkshire countryside and me having a hard time of it. There are a few serious hills to climb and one downhill that requires a LOT of breaking, there is one that is so steep and long it requires me to alternate front and rear breaking otherwise I get break fade and could crash if not done properly.
Please note, this video has been downloaded from 3D Gamer so the quality isn’t as good as it could be, it was downloaded and uploaded again, this doubles the compression.
I will no longer be using this channel to upload bike rides, I’ll now be using my new bike riding channel (The Bionic Cyclist).
