I haven't updated Pr for a few years and actually haven't followed the updates as well. Is it possible to assign a video or audio effect to a shortcut now?
For post-stabilization use higher shutter speed when shooting to limit the motion blur. Crucial on light cameras with no ibis.
Also, shooting 4k might sometimes be wrong for post-stabilization, because the rolling shutter in 4k is way worse, than in 1080p. The jello effect will screw up the footage, where if it had been shot in 1080p, it would be good with a bit of sharpening.
For adjusting the aspect ratio, imo crop tool is not the right tool. Better place black bars on top of the video, because then it's a lot easier to adjust the Y position of video, if the frame needs adjusting.
As for the crop tool's other functions - a very nice thing is that with masks you can, for example draw a circle and track it around some moving object.
I just checked it out and LumaFusion seems like the best mobile editing app!
After a lot of searching I thought there are no apps like that one, but there are!
Too bad, it's for ios. Is there such an app for Android?
''You can use your camera's digital zoom to focus or you can manually zoom in with your lens, too.''
Manually zooming in works only with parfocal zoom lenses - ones that don't change focus while zooming. There are a lot of lenses, where this is would lead to a failure, because if you set focus when zoomed at 50mm and zoom out to wider angle, the focus would definitely be off.
When I'll get a gimbal, I'll definitely try to DIY this:
For a one man operator/focus puller you really don't need a wireless solution, so this could do. I've used these motors and controllers for making a motorised slider and I'm pretty sure it would work for a follow focus as well. The controller has two modes - one when by turning the wheel you set the speed of motor (turn the wheel further - motor speeds up) and the other one, which would be useful for focusing - the motor responds as you turn the wheel. Like if you turn the wheel 45 degrees, motor turns the same. So if you're really on a budget, you can give this a go.
