Odds and Ends – an artist notebook
July 20th, learning how to use new software and equipment is taking up most of my time. I have upgraded from Adobe essentials to Adobe CC.
I have also switched from the audacity to audition. On the surface the different pieces of software look similar, but in reality they are not, so there is a steep learning curve.
I have also purchased the GoPro Hero 4 – Silver as a camera for filming quickly and with a lower profile than my Canon 3Ti. I am still trying to determine its limits compared to the Canon. I wanted something to use in crowds or where the weather is less than ideal.
I also hope to use the GoPro as a second camera in film interview setups.
I heard somewhere (Film Riots I believe) that each type of Camera (Canon, Sony, Nikon, and GroPro) have their own ecosystem that requires its own batteries, lens, cases, etc. GoPro is very much little this, with unique batteries, cases etc. All of which costs time and money.
At present, I learning the different features of the GoPro and what kind of sound I can get out of the system. As a result, you will be seeing a lot of this experimentation reflected in my film projects like Art Post, Studio Cam, and Art Crawl.
Speaking of art crawl, my apologies for the delay in showing the street footage. The file size of the GoPro footage required significant compression and this required to learning do this in Adobe Premiere Pro CC.
