I've got to say I really like the content you're producing and it's helped me tremendously on figuring all this stuff out. Doesn't hurt to see the surf shot in the background either.
yep, Teahupoo for sure!
Mark Darfler (8 months ago)
oh I misread your reply. I thought you meant the photo was captured by him. Did I get to spot right?
The surfer is Mark Visser 👍
Mark Darfler (8 months ago)
Looks like macking day at Teahupo'o...maybe Owen Wright (surfer)...
Thanks Mark! Yeah they're great surf shots of a good friend of mine, Mark Visser 😉

+ A tip from my experience recording music: Check your gain volume on your microphone as it tends to distort, due to the signal being too hot. I hear it a lot on youtube videos no matter how good the content is, which is a shame. Maybe a better mic would be good too. Hope you can use it. Cheers

Hi Justin, just moved to a Mac, love learning more about video editing and getting the story line right within the edits. My number 1 tip for editing is, just stuck in practice, make vids and working on improving work flow. Do it and you will learn in time! I still have a lot to learn. Thanks Justin Marty Ware (Australia)
Thanks Marty! totally agree, as with anything to truely master it you actually need to do it ;)

Could anyone help me in the situation I'm in? I'm not able to upload my hero 7 black videos in iMovie or GoPro Quik. iMovie is saying IT CANT OPEN FILES IN "MPEG-4 MOVIE" FORMAT. All I'm able to see are the pictures I've taken. The videos are black when I upload them, and can only hear the audio. I have a MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Mid 2014) it has the latest update (MacOS High Sierra). Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Justin, what can I do to get my iPhone, iPad ,a den Mac Pro all on the same page? I have filmed with both iPad and iPhone and some are missing from the iPhone. Until this video, I didn’t want to put them on the Mac pro. I will now so I can edit the right way.
if you have everything syncing using icloud then that will keep everything the same across all devices.. another cool app is Adobe Rush (paid though) that helps make the editing the same on iphone, ipad and computers
Wow, FINALLY, an editing video I can understand. You are such a good teacher. You are methodical, slow enough to understand and to the point. I was ready to return my new MacBook Pro. Now I understand! I guess the iPhone and iPad is not as detailed. When I try to edit on the iPad and iPhone, there are not as many choices, or rather I don’t know how to get to them. But this one, is awesome. Ty,ty,ty.
So awesome to hear that! Glad you liked the video

What if you just want to edit images to play as you talk? I’ve seen people do that and insert video clips?

I’m fairly a novice and can say editing does not intimidate me. Headache for me is being able to burn edited video onto a dvd to play on DVD player. That simple yet appears to be impossible. What current software will allow me to burn video to dvd 🤔. I experimented in the past and it was a nightmare.
What's a DVD? (just joking 😅) DVD styler is a good option

If your video files are unsupported (which is pretty uncommon these days) you may need to convert your video to another file first. Free software like Handbrake will let you do this
