How Do I Edit My MTB Footage?

[ New ]


I am wondering how to get that nice cinematic/vivid colour seen in MTB videos. I use a Hero 7 Black.


My camera settings:


Aspect Ratio: 16:9

Resulution: 1080

FPS: 24/60

ISO 100-800

Colour Profile: Flat

Stabilisation: Hypersmooth

FOV: Superview

WB: Auto

Sharpness: Medium

Raw Audio: Low

Mics: Auto

Shutter: Auto



I use Wondershare Filmora 9 Pro.

I am not new to video editing so I know quiet a bit about editing.


I am looking for someone to tell me about how to edit the video to make the colour look profesional and cinematic or some free LUTs that will work well. I mostly MTB through places that have trees most of the time and sun that shines through every now and then.

1· to take the juice out of color/illumination in an editor is very important that you control the image quality that gets out of the camera (scene may change).

Flat color is more natural and more cinematic to color grade, Ev comp -1 -2 protects the highlights when clipped highlights could look unnatural (sometimes don't) the cleanest image is with ISO at minimum values and usually when increasing the color/contrast the noise might cause unusable image problems with LUTS although noise reduction plugins solve these problems the computer processing time that requires can be eternal.

2· I learned free Davinci Resolve thanks to this MTB guy who posted a tutorial:

For me it's the best tool for boosting color image quality, there's a bunch of tutorials out there, in my experience the best LUTs are the ones that you custom make in Photoshop for each situation:

This way one is in control of image quality and aesthetics, random LUTs for random scenes is not quality guaranteed.
