GoPro Hero 6 Black Drive-Lapse Interval Comparison

Published

on

Last year I made a video comparing different intervals when creating a drive-lapse (Driving Timelapse) with the Hero 5 Black. I decided to make an updated video using the Hero 6 Black as it is summer time and there are going to be many hitting the roads and adventuring this summer. This is a good resource to see how different intervals affect the look of your finished drive-lapse. In the test video, I used intervals of .5 second, 1 second, 2 second and 5 seconds. You will notice in the video that the .5 second and 1-second intervals are most appealing and pleasing to the eye. The 2 second and 5-second intervals can look a bit jumpy.

With that said, there is definitely some uses for the higher intervals. For example, if you are going on a long road trip and want to time-lapse it, using a low interval will leave you with a very long video when you’re done. A 5-second interval will leave you with a much more dramatic video that is shorter and won’t bore your viewers.

In this video tutorial, I show you how to easily color grade your GoPro footage both manually and with using GoPro Luts. When filming with a GoPro it does a really good job capturing stunning photos and video. The contrast and vibrancy of the content is good and ready to share. There are sometimes however you want to take your footage to the next level and do your own color grading.

If you decide to do your own color grading it is important to shoot in a flat color profile. GoPro offers two color profiles “GoPro Color” and “GoPro Flat. The flat profile basically has low contrast and low saturation thus allowing you to set your own levels in the grading room. You enable the flat color profile by enabling ProTune and selecting flat as the color option.
