    Solo riding..........video

    I posted this on the AZ board but thought I would share it here too. I went for a ride on Friday afternoon before the rain came in on Saturday and made a little video from my ride. I started the ride with the goal of not having any chest mount footage and was successful.



    I am really happy with the way it all came together. It gives a different perspective of a popular local trail.

    I used a GoPro HD on a gorillapod. The settings were 720p at 60fps.

    Cool video, nice trail. Looks like it was a windy day.

    Does 60 fps use a lot more memory than 30fps? Thanks.

    I actually don't know if it uses much more memory. I use a 16gb card in my GoPro and have never filled it all the way. I use 60fps just in case I decide to slow something down. The video will end up being much smoother than using 30fps.

    Very nice

    There's not enough people shooting their rides like this, it requires much more effort than just switching a helmet cam on but boy is it worth it!

    You've inspired me to have a go at doing the same

    Good video man. I really enjoyed it.

    Hawes is such a great XCish trail. Seems like I haven't gotten around to doing it when I'm down there lately because I'm always in search of my techy stuff. Gonna have to fix that.

    Very cool! What program did you use to do the editing? Is that what you used for the time lapse shot too?

    I used iMovie '11 to edit the whole video.

    For the time lapse scene I had to speed up the video by 2000x then export it and re-import the clip then speed it up another 800x. It started out as a 10 minute clip and ended up at 4 seconds.

    Nicely done. Respect to those that do these 3rd person shoots solo. I have been putting some together and it certainly adds a lot more work to the ride and the editing. They look great though. Good job!

    Dude, you need to tell your cameraman to pan with the rider! Just kidding! Hey, thanks for sharing this video with us. Great job. Man, this was a lot of work, wasn't it? It must've doubled up your mileage by you having to return for your camera every time you faded out of the shot?

    Well done though. I sincerely enjoyed watching your video. Looks like a great trail, too!

    I think it more than doubles the mileage, of course dependant on how many spots you choose to film at. You have to ride to where you and to set up the camera (1x), ride back to where you enter the scene (2x), ride into (3x) and out of (3.5x) the scene, go back and get the camera (4.5x) and then start the whole thing over again. Seems like almost 5x's the amount of riding, again, dependant on how many shots you set up! Followed by all the editing, which sucks because your not riding.

    Nice work! We can all see the effort you put in and it came out great.
