Graveyard Spiral REDUX

This entry is part 5 of 6 in the series Quadcopter
Hey. This page is more than 6 years old! The content here is probably outdated, so bear that in mind. If this post is part of a series, there may be a more recent post that supersedes this one.

I have access to Adobe Premiere Pro and have always felt a little overwhelmed by it (the software) and, creative-wise, the additional dimensions of time and sound. Compared to playing with a single image in Photoshop, getting anything good going with Premiere has seemed to take an immense amount of time and effort.

Anyway – the video in my last post of my quad-drone (with GoPro duct-taped on the nose) crash landing was kind of cool, so I decided to step out of my GoPro Quik easy video editing software comfort zone and try and get -wade- into Premiere a bit. The video above is what I ended up with.

Is it me or is premiere just a little counter-intuitive? But you are dealing with quite a few ‘dimensions’ and reducing that to a 2D screen UI is always going end up with complexity right?

I followed this tutorial about time stretching.

Time-stretching panel in Premiere. You can see where I speed things up and slow them down (at the end)
