anybody for adobe newbie ?

bought the fusion a couple weeks ago, really struggling to learn how to use reframe for adobe prem pro cc, anybody know any good places to start looking, i have watch numerouos videos on youtube and i just cant get it to work, i really want to like this camera but im a novice, any news on the updates to overcapture yet because at the minute this is beyond me and i dont have a degree in editing, i thought this was supposed to be easy gopro ???

Re: anybody for adobe newbie ?

I am a novice as well, I have owned several GoPro cameras and this is my first 360.  I received the Fusion about a month ago and was a little intimidated at first, but now that I have used it for a few weeks I am feeling a lot better.  I think the workflow is relatively straight forward, you shoot your video, open it in Fusion Studio, and stitch it together.  At that point you can edit it in Adobe Premiere like any other video, but with the benefit of being able to choose what vantage point you want to show the audience.  If you are making a 360 video you simply edit the pieces you want in your timeline, some of the options don't work, but so far most have for me.  If you are making a "flat" video, you can use the three GoPro plugins to change the vantage point, that is where the overcapture comes in, it's just a fancy way of saying the camera captured 360 degrees of content, but you are only going to use 1920x1080 (or 2.7 or 4k or...), so you get to choose which portion of the 360 content you display. 

 

I'm not familiar with reframe, but I would highly recommend the Adobe Classroom in a Book series, I have read several and learned a ton!  Here is an example:

 

https://www.amazon.com/Adobe-Premiere-Classroom-Book-release/dp/0134665317/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=15...

 

Don't get lose faith, there is a learning curve, but it can be fun, and once you are over it there is so much you can do with this camera.

Re: anybody for adobe newbie ?

It can be overwhelming since your dealing with multiple angles of 360 and large amount of data. Overall it's a lot of trial and error. Refer to the post below for extensive video tutorials on creating 360 videos and Reframing from the GoPro/Kolor team.

Re: anybody for adobe newbie ?

thanks guys for all the help, i think i just need to play around with it, i have used many gopros before and i usually just edit in gopro studio so i bought the fusion and adobe prem pro, i guess its just a big learning curve, huge infact as i have neved edited 360 and never used adobe up until this week :) will try all the links you have sent, thanks both for the advice
