Thanks for sharing, Vital! Glad you guys are stoked on it. Since you're probably vid dorks like me, here's my process:
The sun had been up for about 30 min when we were dropping in. The footage from 2 hours later is much less impressive, in terms of footage quality.
Filmed (on GoPro H4Black) @ 2.7K Superview x 30fps. Protune, flat color & auto white balance. ISO 200 I believe, and -.5 exposure compensation (in effort to try to prevent highlights/sun from being completely blown out, but that tends to happen during compression upon uploading to the web.)
I reviewed and trimmed fat & GP studio and converted the files to the Cineform codec, keeping them at full size.
Edited in Premiere on a 1080p timeline with the footage scaled down. Did a really quick job of color correction in premiere.
I tried exporting in Media Encoder and Premiere Pro and quality seems equal. The export from Premiere is approx 1.2GB, and Vimeo compresses it to about 150MB... that's the step where it goes from looking super clean to "ok". Hope this helps people slay the internet.

I did very minor CC, but mainly chose shots that looked the best to begin with.

It's a Zhiyun Tech, similarly priced to others on Amazon. I'd like to try the Feiyu to compare durability, function, and weight. When they're working, it's obviously dope. The issue is they aren't as tough as we really need, nor are any of them weatherproof. Customer service is present, but turnaround time & language are hurdles.

Just a single "Uhhhh", a few moments to catch his breath, then straight back on and down the track. Gee-man is made of steel.

This is the best video that has been produced in a while, not for the riding but for the pure human element. There is nothing better in life than overcoming insurmountable odds just to do what you love with people that matter. Huge respect to all the...more

Wait, are you really complaining about 3+ minutes of exceptionally good riding because it was produced by a brand you are angry with for being too expensive? As far as marketing videos are concerned, that one had a ridiculously good riding to product placement...more

Now that the whip-off's gone corporate, maybe it's time for 'chainless-timed-training-world-champs' in Switzerland? Care to lend us some beer money, Gordo?

Vital MTB is indeed the reincarnation of Littermag, yes. And Manara is on the Lebanese border...but it's in Israel.

Random, but...is Vital not the reincarnation of Littermag? Guess I'll research the internet on the internet since I just checked where Manara is. (Lebanon, Rad!)
