Drone footage not clean?
Drone footage not clean?

Hey guys,

can you talk to me a bit about this? I was shooting last week and the footage coming out of my P4 just is NOT clean. I
I'm dealing with what looks like blur or a "double image." My shutter speed was double the frame rate, but somethings not coming out right. Is it just TOO much movements--the car and the drone being in motion-- and I need to shoot a faster frame rate?

Thanks team!

That looks like totally normal motion blur to me. There's always going to be a certain amount of it in your footage--if you set your shutter too high, you get that nasty GoPro look, where motion is overly stuttery and jerky. I prefer some motion blur in my video imagery, especially at 24P. Any fast-moving object shot at a normal shutter speed will have some blur--it's not inherently bad.
