ND filters are essential for creating professional-looking videos. ‘Why?’ you ask? The video settings of the GoPro are simply too limited for always achieving the best possible exposure for the lighting conditions one’s in. Especially shooting in bright daylight can be a challenge.
In this video I go over my cinematic video setting for the GoPro Hero 9 and how to use ND filters to get the best possible results – professional looking video.
Creating time-lapse video is super fun! A sequence of single images are being combined to a video that shows your scene change dramatically over time. This could be the movement of clouds, stars, or even the day turn to night.
In this video, I am going over the settings for creating a professional-looking time-lapse video with the GoPro Hero 9. Here are some shooting intervals to get you started:
1 second Moving traffic Fast-moving clouds Drivelapses
1- 3 seconds Sunsets and sunrises Slower moving clouds Crowds
15 – 30 seconds Moving shadows Sun or moon across sky Stars (15 – 60 seconds)
1 – 3 minutes Growing plants Construction sights
Once you are done shooting your image sequence, follow the steps as outlined in the following tutorial to create your final video clip.
