    Do you use the GoPro software for editing?

    I know when I used to help my mate at the drags, I found the GoPro software best to convert footage for Youtube.

    The biggest problem I had was trying to film at night under lights - could never get that right.

    I have gone back to that because I think that's the big issue with lighting. There is day and night between the conversation with the Go pro version significantly better.

    What I struggled with was cutting pieces out. I couldn't work out how to do that with go pro. I can reduce the length by cutting the start and the end but if I wanted to take something out of the middle I am stuffed.

    Right now I would be happy to get one video loaded. They keep on failing.

    Yep, especially when it should "just work".. technology can be wonderful, but can be damn frustrating!

    I am going from memory, as I haven't used the GoPro for a few years.

    The first step was to select your data/video, and then you went to step 2 editing...

    I am sure you could bring the video in twice for example, so you would import video trim to select first part that you wanted, then bring same raw video on to the timeline/edit section and trim to get the last part...

    Then when you output, it combines the first and last section, thereby trimming out the middle bit

    What I would like to do here is show a video that demonstrates roughly the process of first wash prep and inspection.


    Like all things you might pick up some points and ignore others. It's not a right or wrong proposition.

    You can also follow the link in this video back to an earlier one that shows what they did at the dealership on delivery. Also worth watching.

    End point. There is a big difference between a review inspection and delivery inspection.

    Ok. Not all the drive videos are suitable for public consumption so I am being selective.

    Again, in this series I want to bring context front and centre.

    For me opinions are not right or wrong, black or white. They are based on something and it's that something that's important to understand.

    Or simply put; what did you do to find that fault.

    Here I want to show you the type of road I like to drive on. If a car does well here, driven roughly the same way, it's going to go along way to getting my praise.

    You won't hear tyres squealing, or redline revs. My experience tells me what that level brings. I won't go out and trash a car to do a review which leaves me exposed to not finding the cars ultimate failings. So be it. Happy to be corrected, but for me it's about opening that door to have a conversation on expectation levels that justify purchase.

    As always please watch in the highest quality setting provided.

    Mate, you look like you are hiking it through that magnificent Tassie country side..lol. It also looks like a lot of fun and sounds brilliant. The road is very much like some of my favourite driving roads here in the Adelaide Hills. This is where I like driving my GT most of all.

    As you mentioned there is a lot of background noise going on and your voice sounds quite distant. Do you mind me asking where the mic was located?
