Yeah, the bit of administration is well worth the time. You will remember the major shots and their file locations... but its easy to forget where your cut-aways are as they are often splattered through.

Its also a great wind-down from your adventure to be able to sit back and re-live it.

Have fun

I don't find it a problem. Since I can list the files alphabetically I easily find cutaway shots like "Sailing underway port side" or Captain Ali at helm". By doing the viewing and renaming as soon as I can I delete many files/shots that contain shots that are just plain no good. This frees up more space on the card and acts to edit things down to the most usable shots pretty quickly.

One of the great things about capturing video on files (SD Cards) instead of video tape as Mark may verify is that instead of using time code embedded on the tape and having to watch the tape and write down the time code for the shots you want to use in the edit. You can actually rename the files.
For example my camera names files FB127, FB128, FB129 etc...

I am currently at a Resort Island easing my way back to "civilization". As I drink my morning coffee on the deck I look at the video I've taken and start to rename the files. Say FB 127 will be changed to "Powder Blue Surgeon School". FB128 changed to "Shark Black Tip Reef" This should make it easier to find the footage and photos I need once I start editing or to use in a future video.

On the plane home I may look at the new renamed files again and start to make a shot sheet list with the order of the videos and photo files I want in my edit. Should also save a lot of time once I actually start to edit. Anyone else do this? Comments?
Right,

So, I retitle vids like you describe, but I give a simple alphanumeric prefix to help organise, but I also like to keep things in chronological order.

I am in Cuba right now, doing a few different things; kayaking, beach cat sailing and hopefully getting a kite surfing lesson.

So, I prefix my vids. Kayaking will start with something like "K1A Renting a Sea Kayak". So, vid 2 might be "S1A ripping down the beach on a hobie getaway" Vid 3 might be "KS1A Kite surfing wipe out".

This, for me, categorises by sport, and chronoligical order, while still giving unique titles to clips.

Re: How to make GREAT Videos!

How do you embed the video into the post? The best I can do is add a link like this:

https://youtu.be/aYUQh1UDnk0

Would love to know your thoughts about the above as well?

Many thanks,

Pete

Hi Pete,

I don't think you can on a mobile ap.

Cut the URL from the top of the browser, add the URL link button ensureing the Http is gone and replaced by HTTPS
INsert into post

Change the last bit of the url to the title.

Your error was trying to insert from a mobile browser.

But theres an easier way...

I've worked it out... You just need to copy the long url at the top rather than the share button on youtube and then paste that into the insert link on the forum!

Many thanks,

Pete
