    When editing video, how do you eliminate or correct the barrel effect?

    Thanks,

    Kemo

    I am new to video editing. All I have at this time is iMovie on my Mac.

    I use photoshop to remove the lens distortion. Then I bring the file into iMovie to edit. I'll probably upgrade to final cut at some point soon, which I believe can fix the lens distortion itself.

    Also, a lot of times I don't fix the distortion. I kind of like the way it looks.

    If you record in 1080p, nominate the narrow FOV. This will capture more subject but less scenery. It also minimises the fish eye (barrel) effect.

    I don't know why dji thought it would be best to copy the go pro action camera's wide angle. I understand from gopro's wide as they like to record the actions around and near the user. For Aerial footage should have used nice flat lens to avoid the ugly curved horizon. It's most noticeable when you tilt. The fish also messes with depth perception and make it hard to judge distances.
