    Really nice. I would like to try some slow-motion myself. I assume you use at least 60fps and then slow in post? Do you mind sharing your workflow?

    Hi Andy
    Thanks for the kind comment. Yes i can share my workflow.
    First i set my Gopro to film at 720p and 120fps. It has to be 720p for the higher frame rate. I'm aware the new Gopro 4 is 1080p at 120fps and 240fps at 720 which will be AMAZING.
    Next i export the footage and slow it down in Go pro studio as its the easiest and slickest way. I think it is slowed down to 23fps? Any further and it would get choppy and crap. Any slower i may use Twixtor but you have to be careful because it can look 'Twixtored'
    I do no further work in Gopro studio, so its exported (at best quality) too Final Cut pro X where it is imported as a Proxie file so its easy to work with.
    Here i start to be 'creative' and paint a picture as they say. (i'm an artist/graphic designer in my day job so i think it rubs off from there) I like to tell short story's and keep them tight and sweet as i personally find a lot of ariel footage quite ...dull. Colour correction, text, and bits and bobs. May also do some work in AE or Apple Motion for a specific look etc. Exported out to Vimeo. Done.
    Hope this helps.

    Thanks
    Interestingly the New Gopro 4 can now film at 120fps at 1080p so along with the new 3D Zenmuse it's going to be happy days!
