Official RCGroups.com GoPro Video Editing Contest!

It's finally here! RCGroups and GoPro.com is hosting a free contest, with 5 more GoPro cameras up for grabs! With 3 cameras awarded to the best submitted GoPro clips and 5 cameras going towards the best GoPro video Edits (using the winning clips below), there will be plenty of GoPros to go around! Just get your Video Editor warmed up for the Edit part of the contest. Here are the official contest rules:

Quote:
  • Video clips in the “Video Bank” are to be used in the Video Edit contest. ONLY videos from the bank can be used
  • Maximum of 2 video Edits may be submitted Per Person
  • Videos must be under 6 minutes long
  • The top 5 Edits (voted on by the community) will receive GoPro cameras
  • Video editing submission will run for 2 weeks from October 25th. After two weeks, submission will close, and voting will begin
  • Final edits will be voted on for 1 week
  • A maximum of 1 camera will be awarded to each winner. If someone wins both contests, the 2nd camera will be given to the next place winner
This post will be updated continuously, so be sure to check this post to see the updated video entry list!

Goodluck, and don't forget to check out the GoPro website:

Is there a set time/length that our video has to be under? And is there any rules regarding the soundtrack?

Good point! Let's try to stay around 5 minutes, so we'll put a 6 minute cap on videos. I've edited the first post to clarify.

Apparently I can only download 6 movies a day, so it will take me 6 days to download all videos. Is there another way to make the videos available? An earlier suggestion was to make a zip file of all the videos together and make that available somewhere. Can anyone do that?

For the people that can't download all the videos they need go here. http://savevideo.me/. Take the url from the video and paste it in there, gives you a download link in a second. Got frustrated and came across it last night

Thanks Fred

Video's are very subjective as to which format works best for particular clips.

I usually make vid's for my personal tastes and go with it. Slow and simple at the beginning made sense to me for those great, scenic clips. I also like to keep video's under 3 minutes as I have a short attention span.

This contest is great and I can't wait to see the entries.

or if you use Firefox - use the add-on - download helper and you can save the files as they play pretty easily.

That will get you the flash encoded version that vimeo plays to you.

The download link on Vimeo is the original uploaded video. IIRC
