I almost lost hope getting DaVinci Resolve Studio. But I got it last moment to get it before editing next video. I am glad I got it. I bought it for motion blur and it was worth it. I get much less compression issues in Youtube when I use Resolve’s motion blur. I had to use blur in previous videos but motion blur is better option since it looks more natural and I can have those parts not moving sharper. It is hard to get motion blur in camera when you use action cameras and lighting changes constantly. Easier to have shutter speed on auto and get motion blur in post.
I stopped using film emulation in this video. I wondered why video looked so messy. Then I remembered why I stopped using LUTs earlier. Film emulation seems to lose data when it applies two filters to image. When I dropped film emulation footage started to look much better. Another plus is faster rendering time. I won’t even try it on future videos.
I think I learned few things to get more cinematic looking video. I have been hesitant to add colors in post. Only added contrast, saturation and maybe little temperature if style requires it. When I tweaked colors footage started to instantly look more cinematic. You can expect more cinematic footage when I get better hold on this.
I have used DJI Osmo for cycling videos. I like it being gimbal and bike mount adds additional up and down stabilization. Shooting this video was problematic. This time I lost about 10 minutes of video because Osmo shut down on its own and corrupted video file. I lost another fifteen minutes because Osmo didn’t shoot forward. Osmo also had problems being in straight. It went from one angle to another. Most of time it was straight but not all the time. I haven’t had as much problems before. Maybe I should think about new GoPro Hero which is go to camera for other’s cycling footage.
DJI Osmo wasn’t only thing giving me problems. Ableton Live also didn’t want to co-operate. It might be because it crashed couple times at beginning. I managed to work around what crashed it. But for some reason I had to render music three times before I got it. Glitch effects are not caused by that. Those were intentional. One more thing you can expect more from future videos. It was so fun to work with glitch effects. I can’t use them on moodier music but this time music wasn’t moody.
