Offroad motorcycle woods riding

Finally upgraded my Hero 3+ to a 7 black. I've never done much for editing other than splicing video clips together, adding a bit of text or using cheesy transitions.

Figured what the he||, and turned on protune, filmed in flat color and did all the contrast and color correction in post for the first time.

Need a bit more practice in editing but overall I like the way it turned out.

nice video overall. but you overdid your contrast / blacks . And i suppose you have exported in pretty low bitrate , its too pixelated. If you know you are going to post to youtube, you shouldnt worry about the file size and go all out and use as much bitrate as you can get out of the hero7. around 40-50mbps should be enough tho. what program did you use for editing?

You can try to film in Protune- color flat- and use a LUT for beginning and then edit gamma.
LUTs can be found in the Net, f.e. Groundcontrol, if you record in 4K and export in 4K you will have better results on YouTube- as said above.

Remember for 4K editing you need a good computer, make first tests that it works.
Nice riding, looks like fun.

Good to know about the contrast. I will keep that in mind for future edits. I am using sony vegas for all the editing. I'm not worried about file size at all. I will experiment with exporting at higher bitrates. In the past I've gotten errors when the bitrate was too high... the video would take a long time to render and error out at around 90%.

no chance I can edit 4k.... The above was in 1080 and my 6-7 yr old computer struggles to handle it... (honestly I just put up with how bad it is). Anyone else wouldn't tolerate it. I've read and watched about LUTs. Mainly just a preset color correction or something like that?

A LUT changes a flat profile (Protune, color flat) into the right color and contrast, depending on exposure you have to edit gamma (brightness).
This is a camera LUT- there are also picture LUTs which changes the look and mood of a picture (clip)- to give more or less color or even change colors f.e. the orange-teal LUT.

It's a complex theme, you can read this- https://www.premiumbeat.com/blog/und...color-grading/

Got any GoPro lut recommendations? I’ve tried a bunch of free ones and they all seem to oversaturate the colors. All the free ones I’ve tried definitely don’t provide the bright natural color and tint I was looking for.

IMHO the best Gopro LUT is the built-in Gopro color profile, im quite happy with their setting as is. I dont see any benefit in using flat color, mainly for my purposes . If you are good in your own color grading then go ahead and use it, but its useless for amateurs like we are.

Yes most LUTs are very colorful and the colors are to strong- you have to desaturate the picture.

I agree that the result with a LUT is very similar to the GoPro color and the GoPro color looks most more natural.

With a LUT you can get a result that goes more in the art direction or to get another mode/style in the pictures
