    Smile One of my favorite Moab rides

    Barny and I are on a little Utah road trip, and while in Moab we hit my favorite slickrock playground:

    Great videography! Me likes!
    I don't use Strava. Don't need an application to tell me I am slow because I already know.

    If you come down a little south on your roadtrip, check out Sedona. I'll play tour guide! I'm trying to compile better video imagery of that landscape. I bet you'd have some ideas?

    Thanks for the stoke too!

    Brilliant, video and the tune, one of my faves, totally fits the location (even if she's talking about Arizona). Top marks!

    Great vid tscheezy. I just watched it over in your passion post. Great post there by the way!

    Did you edit this all down in iMovie? On a MBP? I find editing on my 13" macbook to be quite frustrating. Kudos to you for having the patience to do such an extensive edit on a laptop.

    What were your export settings? There was much less motion artifacts than in the vid's I have done so far w/ iMovie and my Gopro HD.

    I did it all on a 17" MacBook Pro 2.5 GHz (pre-unibody). It works fine, though I do all the stabilization after putting the movie together in it's final form since that step takes so freaking LONG. I have an i7 27" iMac at home which is super nice for video work, but the MBP does fine on the road.

    The export settings are Share > Export using QuickTime...
    Compression type: H.264
    Frame rate: current
    Key frame: 24
    Compressor: High
    Encoding: Best Quality
    Data Rate: Automatic
    Filter- Sharpening: 3
    Size- Custom 1280 x 960
    Preserve aspect ratio using Letterbox
    Deinterlace source video

    I use iMovie '09's built-in uploader to Youtube. I have to say that the original HD version on my computer kicks the Youtube version's ass up one side and down the other. No comparison, the original is waaaaay better.

    So will you upload an HD version later?

    Youtube's conception of HD seems to be limited to a 16:9 aspect ratio maxed out at 1280 x 720 video. I shot this at 1280 x 960 so it's 4:3. The only way to get a 4:3 on to Youtube is unfortunately at 720 x 540, so that is the max I can do at this point, afaik. I may try vimeo for the heck of it.

    Not a bad idea. There's something about Vimeo that just makes it seem better.

    Thanks cheesy. Those are some great ideas for those of us that can't afford a helicopter. How high would you say the camera is on those shots?

    tscheezy, you may have posted this video in this forum to discuss the technical aspects of your video shooting skills but if you have not posted this over in the Passion forum, you need to!

    I gotta say, what Anthony Sloan did with still photos on this site, you are now doing with video. Your recent footage is top notch, as good or better than any I've seen on this site. Much like Anthony's stuff did, your posts elicit feelings from the viewer and a huge sense of connection. It draws the viewer in rather than just leaving him to spectate from afar.

    Great stuff

    Ironically enough, part of my job counting fish does involve filming them.
