So, the reason for my original request and perhaps I should have shared that is that I was trying to find a way to cut down my video, edit and export it.
The original was approx 1.4Gb and my little phone struggled to cope. So, after reading above, some trial and error, etc I’ve cracked it. And for the benefit of others I’ll share my workflow here and a link to my video for those that care and to provide any critique, advice or even a better workflow.
So, caveat is: this is on my Windows 10 PC but could easily be done via a Mac with very similar steps.
- Always work on a copy
- Drop / Open copied file in the ‘Ricoh Theta’ desktop app and allow it to process and save your file. It will add an ‘_er’ to the filename.
- Open this new file in ‘Insta Studio’ and trim, keyframe, etc to your heart’s desire and then export.
- If you want to add titles, change soundtrack, etc then open in your video editor of choice. I tend to use DaVinci Resolve or Shotcut for my video editing - both free for non-commercial use.
- Save and share.
So, following my point 5 advice here is my video - it’s of the steam train, Tornado, that passed through back in July. BTW, there is sound so do put those speakers on.
