    Hi friends!

    Just a few days ago I posted my very first motovlog.
    I started doing this because my girlfriend got me a GoPro Hero Session. I enjoy every ride and I wanted to share them with the world!

    About myself:
    I'm a 24 y/o girl living in the North-Brussels region in Belgium.
    Since march I'm driving a Kymco CK1 125cc, so I'm a new driver. My girlfriend drives a Kawasaki Z250sl, which I'm looking to buy from her as soon as I have my full driver's license.

    You can see my first vlog under Youtube name Elke van de Velde ;)
    Please don't hesitate to leave me some helpfull tips and comments.
    I'm having some trouble with editing so any tips on that are very welcome!

    Thanks and enjoy!
    Elke

    Welcome to the forum. I enjoyed your vlog. What kind of camera are you shooting with, and if it allows for an external mic I would get one?

    What kind of editing software are you using, and what are some of your vlogging goals? Ride destinations, content, themes, etc. ... ?

    Hi!
    I'm using a GoPro Hero Session. I chose it because it was under the €150 price mark and it was a lot smaller than the other GoPro's. It does not have an external mic port unfortunatly, but I'm planning on recording my commentary with my phone and editing it in post-production.
    As of now, I don't have a preffered editing software yet. I'm still trying out some free versions, but haven't found one to my liking.
    One of the forum members suggested Adobe Premiere Pro, but the software keeps crashing on me so that's not an option :confused:
    Vlogging goals... I don't have a real goal yet. Right now, I just want to show that it's still fun to drive a cheap, small-engined motorcyle, while being a noobie-driver :p
    As soon as I find a consistent subject in my vlogs, my goal will become clear ;)

    I did, as well as the Quick editor but they only let me create 60 second video's :confused:
    I would like them to be at least 4 times longer, haha

    For longer and more robust videos I would suggest to go with the Adobe package (if affordable). If you're experiencing crashes it may be a RAM problem. You can designate more RAM to Premiere while you're working on. Turn off any other programs you're using in the background, unless they're related to the project you're working on.

    There is a trick to making adobe more affordable! All you need is a .edu email address. From any school or university. You can buy one for $5 on fivvr. Then go to adobe and purchase the student package... you'll have access to everything for half the price... about $30 a month.

    Welcome. If you want to be serious about doing any sort of decent editing, then you are going to have to pay for something.

    And in reply to anyone else:
    I found my solution! My girlfriend has iMovie on her MBP and right now I feel like an editmaster! :p It's exactly what I was looking for in terms of cutting a clip. I just need to find my way around transitions and captions 'n stuff and my next vlog should be up by tomorrow :D
