Stereoscope

Here’s another video I have uploaded to YouTube. In this one I have 2 x Go Pro Hero Black Editions connected on either side of the car.

Interestingly, I was able to get a single camera remote controller to operate both cameras together but at some down towards the end of the drive the left hand side one stopped recording and I haven’t been able to work out why. That means that towards the end of the video you’ll only get the aspect from the drivers side. Still, I hope you enjoy that.

Piecing the two sequences together proved much more challenging than I figured. I think I am approaching the limit of using Windows Movie Maker for the video production. I’ll have to start doing some research to see what else is out there.

I also think that the swapping between the two sides is a little jarring and I could have perhaps extended the fade out between these. I’ll try that in the next video. I also noted that what I probably need to do during the cut overs is allow a bit of duplication from one side to the other. That will allow the viewer to appreciate that the location is the same only the camera angle is changing. I tended to, in this video, try and cut exactly at a single point from one side to the other. Doing so, to me anyway, make it lose some continuity. Thus, duplicating some of the leading footage just after the switch (so after the cut over you see some of what you have already seen travelling by) rather than trying to get the precise moment I think will work much better.

Anyway, see what you think and let me know how you think it could be improved. I’ve still got a lot to learn about this video editing stuff!
