Outer Banks 360 Video

I love the Outer Banks (OBX)!  I visit every chance I can and hope to retire there someday.  On my last visit I took a stroll on the beach in Kitty Hawk and shot video with my brand new Insta360 One X camera.  I purchased the Bullet Kit from the Apple Store the month before and shot a few things.  It took a little time getting use to editing the photos and videos.  I shot video at Carousel Park and shot some photos while looking for a new office building.  I watched a bunch of YouTube videos discussing best practices for editing a video.  My favorite is using my spinning office chair to choose the video shots.  I have a few complaints that I’m sure will be resolved:

  • Have the accessories for us to purchase (Venture case, Drifter, Remote).
  • Enable import of videos from One X camera into MacBook Pro using the USB C port.  Don’t make me upload to a Windows PC or save the video to Photos and then AirDrop to my MacBook Pro.
  • Plugins for FinalCut Pro

The video below was shot on the Insta360 One X and edited in FinalCut Pro.  I used the One X LUT without further adjustments.

Created new Facebook Profile Video Pics using FCPX

The other day I was looking for some new ideas for videos I make for my son’s Boy Scout troop, and I received an email from Pixel Film Studios about a new plug-in called ProFreez Comic for Final Cut Pro.  Well the luck of the Irish was smiling down on me, everything was 25% off for St. Patrick’s Day!  I ended up purchasing ProFreez Comic and ProFreeze Spatter.

So I created a test clip using a few selfies from my camping trips this year.  I kept the clips at 5 seconds, changed the duration of the plug-in to just a few seconds, and saved to my Photo Library.  Using my iPhone, I changed my Facebook profile to the video clips below ( I ended up keeping version 2).  The music clip is not available in Facebook profiles.
