View Full Version : More Climbing (in Switzerland)
2007 August 29th, 18:07
A clip that I wish featured more climbing than it does. The rain got in the way though! I didn't make this to show you guys, just for the 2 people I was away with, so I haven't done any colour correcting or anything fancy (not that I can do much fancy stuff!).
Also, it's 630mb for a 15min clip. I've kept it at 720p and encoded with h264. If you want to check it out it's here for a few days atleast;
As always, any constructive criticism is welcome. In fact, criticism is welcome all round. What doesn't kill me, although at first will leave me close to death, will ultimately make me better.

yeah, i know. As I said, I didn't intend to share it so i kept it large, but then thought I might as well offer it out since I did record it with an HV20! Sorry.

May please describe how did you encode with h264? Which tools did you use?

output from vegas, resized to 720p, using ffdshow, h264, bitrate of 4500kbps, one pass.

Very nice Pascal!.What font did you use for credits?.
These guys are amazing. The one thing I missed was close ups of their finger tips and faces while they were climbing. Oh and Auto Iris got a bit distracting. Loved the shot of the guys smoking behind the trees near the beginning.:hv20-smilie81:

The font used was copperplate gothic light. The reason there were no close ups is that I was the one climbing AND filming! As I said, I didn't go to film, I went to climb. It's something I need to find a better balance in, because I know I could get better footage. I think on my next trip I will just have to move the camera around more, instead of just hitting record and climbing again and again!
Also, sorry for the abrupt ending, it should have faded out but I made a small change that I forgot about and didn't notice until after I rendered.

Pascal that was so good. I finished watching that like i'd just left the cinema.
It just shows that in the right and steady hands the hv20 rolling shutter stutter disappears to the average eye.
anyway congrats that was superb

Thank you, I'm flattered. That's the second thing I've filmed/edited so I'm glad you like it. I'm planning on getting a lot of footage this autumn winter as I'll be doing a whole lot of climbing, in france, switzerland, italy, england, etc. I think that I could make something quite nice if I just concentrate more on getting good shots and thinking about how it will look as a final product. I find that often times I may just be recording without thought to editing or final output.
ps. it was pretty much all done on a tripod! My hands are too shaky when I'm climbing!
