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.
