It is way too early to be at skate Park.
It has been closed for three months, this is my first time back.
I have this 360 camera.
This is the Insta 361 ar and this thing claims to help you edit your videos with AI.
So you can do stuff like make clones of yourself or skate around a Rocco’s modern life Or even just tap a few buttons, and we’ll analyse your footage and edit together a sizzle reel for you.
So today I’m going to try my very best to learn some tricks.
And we’re going to go back to my apartment where you can see the AI editor live in action in a couple of different ways.
And then I’m going to try and edit it without the AI and we’ll watch him back to back to back.
And you could decide which one you like the best.
But until then, alright, there it is.
So let’s do it.
All right, the battery died literally as I landed my last trick but if anyone asks, I for sure landed it.
It’s probably fitting into that session because I am way too sweaty so I’ll talk to you soon.
All right, I’m already sore, but it was fun, finally getting back out there.
We got the camera right here we’re going to do all our editing on the app itself using only Wi Fi which surprisingly works.
But before we get there, we’re gonna need a timer and a wheel .Now what’s the wheel for?
I already spent some time in the app, listening to the song choices and to be honest, I don’t think I would choose very many of them if it was totally up to me.
So we got beat modern trap, one that’s actually called extreme sports.
Never let me go and crazy EDM No, I don’t have a fancy spinning contraption.
So we’re gonna let my cat Shane decide what song we’re gonna use.
Here’s to hoping it’s not crazy EDM.
Keep monitoring trap.
Beep modern trap it is but the gods must have wanted crazy EDM because they sent a thunderstorm and now it’s real dark and we lost all in a nice natural light so bear with me.
So the first AI cut we’re going to do is using Flash cut, which is the least amount of human interference.
We’re going to start the timer now we come in here we go to stories and writing.
It’s kind of like a preset then see this button right here flash cut that basically just analyzes all my clips and just sees what it thinks is the best thing to do and then put them together in this preset So that’s gonna be option one, flash cut finds your best shots and as them together on beat confirm, I don’t really wanna look at it.
I wanna watch it at the same time you guys are watching it, so to speak.
We’re gonna go export.
Bam, we’re gonna wait to watch them all back to back to back at the end.
So yes, I could have gone in and watched the preview and adjusted the transitions and adjusted the music.
But it’s an AI editor.
So, especially for this flash cut version, I really didn’t want to do anything.
I just wanted to make as few taps as possible and end up with the finished video.
There we go.
Dopping, it’s about three and a half minutes.
Not bad to go from nothing to export a video, although we haven’t watched the quality of that video.
All right, but the second AI method is a little bit different.
I’m going to tell it what clips I want.
And I’m going to analyze those individual clips in the hopes that the AI will recognize the best parts of those clips.
So starting timer now, you click this little circuit brain brain explosion, and this will analyze the clip and pull parts of it out.
And from what I’ve seen, it seems to pretty much get what I want.
You’re gonna make sure they all have that multicolored circuit board brain, but now instead of just clicking flash cut, go a little kickflip.
Ollie come the other way.
You got to pick my cat song export.
So yeah, exporting I definitely had to tap a lot more spend a lot more time clicking analysing the clips and telling AI which clips I wanted to use so we’ll see.
All right before we watch him we’re in for the final frontier.
Resetting the timer and this is all me baby.
So this time we come into stories, create new story, think we want one our album, stop honking please and I’m just seeing Edit music, which I didn’t do in the AI thing, but I see there’s a mixer.
Yeah that’s pretty good once the song come right on the fall, but it’s not happening really tracked my body throughout that whole slam which is nice I guess you can set keyframes or you tap and hold.
For the most part that’s really good attracting people Although it does punch in a lot, it seems to get rid of my skateboard a lot.
You can see that.
I definitely don’t clear this thing.
I hope no one’s looking too hard.
It is very hard editing on a phone.
I love this tracking thing.
One mahomes deal is worth 350 million dollars.
Did you know that [SOUND] Yeah, I like that a lot.
It makes a very simple trick look cool with the person tracking so we’re probably not gonna end on a good beat and we didn’t start on a good beat.
But I’m going to go ahead and export now.
I have 9% battery left on my phone.
My phone is hot.
I’m doing the screen capture editing on the phone, my stress levels are really high.
Thunderstorm seem to have passed though.
We’re back to the daylight.
The cats here, Shamy, say hi, we use your song.
17 44 so not too far behind the second AI option.
Finally, the moment has come to put the nail earpiece back in again.
Let’s start with the first one, the flash cut version.
We’re just sort of through all my clips and just put in what it thought was the best stuff.
Yeah, it’s seen the lens guard which is weird because the footage itself didn’t see that but for some reason, this auto edit is.
See no one’s guard.
Let’s do it.
A lot of me talking to myself being frustrated.
Wow, that was really bad.
It likes me turning the camera on and off running away from the camera.
It apparently didn’t like skateboarding and although because I’m not sure if it caught a single skateboarding clip We got to watch it one more time.
Like purposely made the stitching way worse.
Like I didn’t see any of those lines, editing it and all of a sudden they’re all over the place.
Alright, so flash cut with a lot to choose from did a really bad job next up, it’s the AI version where I told it what clips to look at.
So let’s see.
Man, that one was pretty discouraging, I gotta say, and let’s do it.
Who, no, got one?
got one trick.
Two, countdown three, not really no.
You know what?
It was miles better than the flash cup version.
Let’s watch this one more time.
Didn’t get my fall, so that was massive.
It totally missed a couple of tricks, but it got a few.
What’s weird is it’s not as on V as I would think it would be, cuz I thought that was kinda the whole point.
And then it got the last trick but it cut it real tight at the end for whatever reason.
Okay, I feel better about that one.
I’m still a little disappointed if I’m being honest.
Now let’s watch mine which I also have not watched and let’s do it.
Now I think the one that I edited was definitely the best but.
That’s not to say I didn’t use a bunch of AI elements.
I think the AI editor as a whole is nowhere close to being there yet.
But there’s a lot of little things that the app helped me do that would probably take me 100 years to do on my own, whether that’s the little effects that you’ve been seeing.
Scattered throughout this video, or just the stuff like the person tracking was really cool and to do that effect myself, especially in the app would have taken a really long time to do.
Now I’m not sure if this actually is artificial intelligence or just some crazy software wizardry.
It seemed to really like me reaching out to turn the camera on or like running away from it.
But 360 cameras have been out for years and I’ve never really been interested until this thing came along.
And I think this app is pretty intuitive even for someone who doesn’t have tons of video editing experience, and it really streamlines that whole process.
So you have these 360 degree images that are hard to kind of know what to do with and it tries real hard to guide you down this path.
Get something at the end that’s at least fun, if not super polished.
And for what it’s worth, I do like this specific camera a lot.
It’s very cool that it’s modular.
It actually came with a regular lens.
So it’s both an action camera and a 360 camera.
One totally comes apart.
It syncs up with my phone super easily and the Wi Fi editing feature was actually really easy, especially when you consider how heavy those files probably are.
I would imagine this probably makes it more durable and speaking of verbal, if you get one of these, use the lens guards by the lens guards the very first time I turned it on I wasn’t using them and I accidentally knocked it over, so use them if you got them definitely 100% my fault.
I hope you enjoyed this experiment I showed a lot of fun making it and I didn’t hurt myself too bad.
Let me know which of the edits you liked the best and be sure to critique my skateboarding style and of course my mustache But most importantly be excellent to each other.
Thank you so much for watching.
From Shane and me, we’re signing off.
