- I order to work with video files,…it's a good idea to have a fast drive.…In this case, I'm working with the Drobo Mini,…that's connected via Thunderbolt to my computer.…So, I'll get good (mumbling) on the video files.…If you're looking for a bus powered solution,…I recommend something a bit faster.…In this case, it's a 7200 RPM drive from G-Tech,…with a USB 3.0 and a Thunderbolt connector.…In both cases, I've got USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt.…These two connection types are really well suited…for performance.…On the other hand, there are lots of smaller…bus powered drives out there.…
These are good for back-up,…but you may really notice a lag…when you start to work with the files.…I recommend, as you choose a drive,…either favor one with USB 3.0 or Thunderbolt…and, if possible, look for one with…multiple drives striped together into a performance RAID,…for the best performance.…But, since the GoPro uses pretty heavy compression…and the files are relatively small,…you can often get by with the single height drives…or with a RAID, in this case, like I have on the Drobo.…
Author Rich Harrington starts with the basics: importing and organizing photos, correcting distortion, adjusting color and exposure, and getting ready for print. He then moves on to working with video: developing color and exposure with adjustment layers and presets, and then rendering out the adjustments for editing in another application. He wraps things up with a short, fun tutorial on assembling a time-lapse sequence. Start watching and learn the skills you need to get the best-looking footage from the GoPro and other action cameras.
