I hope everyone has had a great break over the Holiday Season. My family went to Canberra to visit family over Christmas and New Year which was great except for the extremely bad smoke levels on a few days caused by the bushfires along the east coast of Australia. Our hearts go out to those who have lost family, friends or property and to the brave volunteer fire fighters working hard to save as much as possible. Perth on the west coast has not been directly affected.
While I was in Canberra, I had some time to edit the video footage recorded on the Great Vic Bike Ride 2019 along the Great Ocean Road.
While on the ride, I used a GoPro camera on my handlebars to record the day’s ride. Each evening we would review the around 60GB of footage and find the individual video files with interesting footage to keep. This way we could keep the total amount of storage needed down and perform the initial triage of the video captured while the day was still fresh in our minds.
After the ride was over we reviewed the videos we had kept and made an edit list with the filename and start and end times of the segments we wanted to include in the final cut. Over the Christmas break I had time to take the videos, and some still photos and pull them all into Camtasia and produce the video. I am not a professional video producer, but was very happy with the end result (after a few iterations).
[Edit] Here are a few statistics from the ride (thanks to my Garmin Edge 830):
