This video editing project features dramatic bald eagle footage from Dutch Harbor, Alaska.
I had a blast editing it!
Here are three reasons why.
For starters, the 5:4 aspect ratio of the original clips does not fit inside a 16:9 frame. So, I got to decide how best to recompose each scene. This meant I got to do a lot of key framing, as well.
The color in the original footage is quite flat. But there’s good news. A lot of great information is baked into those Chronos files, allowing for robust color correction and grading.
EVEN SLOWER MOTION
The slow motion files recorded by the Chronos camera play back at 60 frames per second. I changed the interpretation of these files to 30 frames per second without any loss in quality.
