I TAUGHT MYSELF HOW TO SALVAGE MY DRONE VIDEOS. IT CHANGED THE WAY I EDIT.
I started editing just coming home from my last trip. I then proceeded to transfer my shots from my memory cards to Final Cut Pro. After reviewing my shots I find that the drone footage I was so stoked to edit came out a bit half-baked, mediocre, nuthin special or just plain dull. I thought I did a decent job at the time I was recording but turns out it wasn't.
I've been whipped by ugly footage from time to time and I've found out a way to not hit the delete button. I taught myself how to salvage my boring drone footage and polish it up to be something a bit more valuable. Here are some of the best effects I use to salvage and even create a better video.

1. VERTIGO EFFECT! DOLLY ZOOM in FINAL CUT PRO X
In this Final Cut Pro X, I show you guys how to do a Vertigo Effect otherwise known as a Dolly Zoom! This is super cool if you have any sort of zooming in or out shots! Drone shots work really well! Try and shoot in either 2.7K or 4K because you are going to have to digitally crop your shot in FCPX!
