Gh4 workflow

Hi,

I have just collected a bunch of footage documenting the Finnish summer and I would like to get some advice as to how to start 'processing' the footage.

The goal is to create a travel montage, which includes a lot of speed ramping, positioning and stabilization. The focus of the piece will be the interaction between the images, effects and sound. They are all equal in importance.

I intend on pursuing a workflow as such: select and stabilize clips/ sequences/ events in After Effects, then pre-comp and apply Twixtor as needed, pan & scan/ resize/ crop to 1080p or not, export as prores 444, import to FCPx, put it all together as a fluent series of events and rework effects as needed.

Can somoene let me know if I am heading for woes or if I am on the right track. What else should I consider?

Why bring AFX into the mix? FCPX can do those tasks and save you generation loss and time.

I was thinking the same thing. More flexible and in real time for the most part.

Thanks Noah.

I intend of using curves quite a bit for movement. But I think your are right, the generation loss is not really worth the little bit of extra 'flair' I could apply in AFX. Keep it simple and the audience will thank you for it, I guess...

Choose key clips for AE later or prior.

I do it all the time with my GH4 and RED Scarlet.

Now thats usually post stuff.

I have never liked any of the Optical Flow options in any NLE.

Love AE Timewap ;)

Why not? The one in X is the same as Motion and Premiere is the same as AE. They seem pretty flawless for the most part.

My beef is specific.

Using GoPro footage shot at 29.97 leaves anomalies everywhere specially snow footy.

Works great with my Scarlet at HFR but thats just cheating.
