    Hi guys,
    So I wanted to check with you guys what you usually do in post with your video. I have a P2V+, and was amazed over how smooth the video is! I just started flying, and here is my first clip published, recorded at my 6th flight.

    What I've done in post is:
    - Defishing with the DJI profile in Photoshop
    - Color-and exposure correction keyed in AfterEffects
    - Speed ramping
    - Gradient exposure filter for the sky in AfterEffects

    I am really surprised over how well the camera performs, the photos in DNG are surprisingly good too! Very smooth video as well, I expected having to stabilise it in post, but skipped it as it was smooth enough.

    What do you do in post with your video?

    Can't view the video, but that thumbnail looks pretty cool

    You're doing the main things already I think.
    It looks a very gloomy day and you can only fight that so much, it performs much better in good light.

    I sometimes feel bothered by default sharpening artefacts flashing.
    You can knock those back by softening slightly with diffusion or antialias then perhaps reharpen slightly.
    Neat Image can help with it too.
    Beware of a formulaic approach, what is or isn't beneficial varies - and sometimes there's no need to do anything.
    If you use the narrow 1080p you won't even need lens correction, and sharpen problems are much less.
    I still mostly like the wide 1080 though.
