Recording video and audio
Having purchased a GoPro Max I initially tested doing 360 degree videos.
However, recording audio with the built-in GoPro microphone just sounds terrible. So I record the sound using a separate Zoom H1n audio recorder.
Then I have to edit the video and audio track together. I only have iMovie and I ran into a problem with the 360 videos. When you export the video from iMovie the 360 image is incorrectly stitched together, giving a weird seam which looks really bad.
So today I decided to do a test using Hero mode on the GoPro instead of 360 mode. I think the results are much better, and the video is in mp4 format straightaway. There are no problems using iMovie, removing the original audio and then adding my new stereo track.
Whilst 360 videos are kinda fun, I think this Hero mode video is better quality and the audio sounds great!
