Back in 2002 some friends and I took a trip out to Whistler, BC for some amazing skiing. One of the days we went heliskiing. Here’s video shot both by one of the guides mixed with some of my own.
I shot a lot of ski video that season, to follow up my 2000-2001 Ski Video. While I was just learning Final Cut when editing the first, I didn’t edit the second during the season and meant to wait till the summer. Sadly I never got around to it, so these video clips (along with many more) had been buried on tapes and hard drives in the basement.
Editing in iMovie 11 is much easier than the Final Cut 2.0 that I used (though still less capable). It’s enough to throw together simple videos which is about all I have time for these days. One annoyance is that its processing deinterlaces these old DV videos so the quality is somewhat degraded. Not a big issue with the guide’s lower-quality camera video here, but I would need to invest in FCE if I were ever to go back to editing my old DV.
