If you’re not familiar with video editing and camera settings then shooting slow motion video with a GoPro can perhaps be a little frustrating.You may keep wondering why your new GoPro Hero4 slo-mo’ed footage is jittery and jerky. It may be because you need to sync the camera and editing settings. MicBergsma is here to help you out in this situation though: in his short GoPro Quick Tip he demonstrates the best way how to get the smoothest videos possible.

    No one has commented. I’m not sure why, but I guess that leaves me to be that guy.

    This was a disappointing video, and not simply because it was difficult to understand him.

    I was caught off guard by this at first, because YouTube is so much about personalities, and part of a “personality” is being a good speaker. That said, I was impressed by just how much personality he has, and after a few moments, I was really in to the video.

    The disappointing part of the video is it doesn’t really give much information. There is a handy chart, but that can be summarized by saying “common frame-rates are 24fps and 30fps, so interpret your footage as one of those two (or whatever your timeline is at), and if that is not slow enough, just sub-frame (pixel?) sampling.”

    In the end, there was no finished product displayed, and there were 15 costume changes.

    There just wasn’t much. Disappointing.

      I am WELL aware he is deaf, and that is what affected his speech. As I said, a large portion of being a YouTube Personality is speech, and what I was trying to impress was that I was quite taken with how much personality this man had, despite the speech issue. He is a great YT personality, I just didn’t expect it is all. Nothing against him.

      My only issues, in the end, were with content, and that he changed more than… Well… I don’t have anything witty for it. he just had way too many costumes, and not enough content, is all.
