4k Video Editingquad4xcopter

Thu, 13 Apr 2017 00:06:29 +0000

While 4k video is awesome to look at, it was taxing my 7 year old PC.  I use Sony Vegas to edit and the preview window would lag to the point that it was impossible to see what was going on.  Then I learned about PROXY editing.  Basically, Vegas generates a low resolution version to … Continue reading "4k Video Editing"

More and more each dayquad4xcopter

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 18:45:26 +0000

With each flight I gain a little confidence.  I’ve tested the max ‘safe’ range up and away.  I try not to turn off the safety features but it is far enough away that I’m technically not safe because I do not have line of sight.  I have no issues flying around obstacles and didn’t have … Continue reading "More and more each day"

Rain Rain Go Awayquad4xcopter

Fri, 10 Mar 2017 14:00:36 +0000

The past week or so it has been raining on and off.  I haven’t been that spontaneous with my flight times so the rain has really prevented me from planning a flight.  Instead, I’ve been enjoying YouTube videos of other people’s experiences with the drone.  A lot of this journey started by just watching Casey … Continue reading "Rain Rain Go Away"

As you may have noticed from flight #2, I have the sharpness settings on the video pretty soft.  I didn’t add any sharpness in post processing because…well, I’m still learning.  Here are flights 3 and 4.  I think 4 I pushed it a little too much and I’m not really sure what is causing the … Continue reading "Sharpness"

On my third flight, I finally snapped a picture instead of shooting video.  Hello Houston Museum District fountain.  It was a little foggy that morning, so you can’t see too far, but I do like being able to see the earth from a bird’s perspective.

A Global Economyquad4xcopter

Thu, 02 Mar 2017 17:29:16 +0000

As mentioned, I recently got the DJI Mavic Pro.  Since I made a pretty big investment into it, I wanted to be able to protect it while taking advantage of its greatest selling point, portability.  There were tons of different camera cases and foam cutouts people have been using, but then I found a case … Continue reading "A Global Economy"

Let’s Talk Storagequad4xcopterIMG_20170223_134226.jpg

I typically don’t like super large storage because I’m afraid a card will go bad and I’ll lose everything that I have.  This actually has never happened to me, but since smaller storage is usually cheaper anyway, I still typically buy smaller storage over larger storage.  Unless I’m on a mountain snowboarding, changing out an … Continue reading "Let’s Talk Storage"

Early Morning Flightquad4xcopter

Sat, 25 Feb 2017 22:37:48 +0000

For my second flight I went to the edge of a park and took off from the very empty parking lot.  Since it was before sunrise, I felt safe flying about and getting views of both the medical center and downtown at the same time.  I’m still learning how to color grade and edit this … Continue reading "Early Morning Flight"

DJI Mavic First Flightquad4xcopter

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 17:13:27 +0000

After registering the Mavic with the FFA, charging up the batteries, and going ahead and getting DJI Refresh Care (insurance), I headed out to a local park and just did a simple Beginner Mode flight.  The beginner mode restricted the speed, height, and max distance, to make me feel better about flying something brand new. … Continue reading "DJI Mavic First Flight"

I Could Not Resistquad4xcopter

Thu, 23 Feb 2017 17:05:17 +0000

I went ahead and purchased the DJI Mavic Pro.  It has been the hottest thing on YouTube and now that it is February, DJI has caught up with demand and is shipping orders within a week.  I’m very excited to have a quad that has GPS and can hold altitude without having to micro manage. … Continue reading "I Could Not Resist"
