A one-week ski trip in Zermatt, Switzerland, in February 2013
Pretty cold weather the whole week, the warmest temperature being -8°C (17.6°F) in downtown Zermatt. One morning we had -29°C (-20°F) at sunrise at the Klein Matterhorn. Amazing quality snow overall.
Extraordinary vantage points all over, Rothorn, Klein Matterhorn, Stockhorn or Gornergrat, offering breathtaking views on the highest mountains in Europe.
Shot with a GoPro Hero 3 at 1080P at 30fps. ProTune was turned off.
This was a first attempt at shooting with a GoPro. Helmet not tightly strapped. Almost all the shots were so shaky they were unwatchable garbage. Ready to be thrown away.
They managed to be salvaged thanks to Autodesk Smoke's stabilizer. Some camera movement was left in for realism. The end result had to be cropped to 720P. A few shots were not stabilized at all and look really bumpy.
This was shot over the course of a week, with a mix of bright and overcast days. No 2 single shots with light temperature. White balance was never the same. Color matching was a breeze thanks to Smoke's color corrector. Amazingly user friendly. It's ridiculous. It's really a few mouse clicks to color match 2 adjacent shots. Why use anything else in other NLEs?
Time Wrap was also a fun node to play with. Sped up the last 2 shots. Extreme slow down on the jumps. Twixtor almost sounds useless compared to this built-in node.
Since this I switched to 1080P 60fps, ProTune switched on. A lot more freedom with color correction in post.
