  • Do you know how I can maximize the bitrate on this camera? It is advertised as 100-120 mbps but my clip info is showing that it was shot at 26.6 mbps. Thanks!

  • Can I merge two or more videos shot with the one x together within the App? If I shoot more than one short clip on a hike or so, I want to be able to put these together to create one clip. I haven‘t found a way to do that!?

  • Great video. Shame you mistakenly deleted/edited out a lot of the pivot point thing but nevertheless, it's reaffirmed my contention that the Insta+ is the best one out there right now.

  • Hello my android phone app has only these options- Filter, Speed, Trim, Music. Does the iphone ipad has extra previlages?

    • Yeah I don’t know why it’s like that a lot of apps that are written for both android and iOS, android always seems to be behind or sometimes no app at all doesn’t make sense to me

    • +Air Photography Thank you for your reply. Ok I have got 2 updates for the android app by now. I hope the next update brings more. I dont think its that hard for them to do.

    • Yes I do believe iOS app has a few more features. They most likely will be made for android at some point

  • Very nice tutorial. I haven't gotten the camera yet but watching and reading about it online. The PC version of Studio is bare bones- still in Beta phase. I don't own a smart phone or I-Pad so hoping for the PC version to get released soon. I look forward to more tutorials for the One X from you.

  • Interesting walkthrough... 1. But how come you haven't warned everyone that even during your first few minutes of charged device, the battery icon dropped a 'chunk' of energy. Wow. Runtime? 2. Also, you have highlighted the sensitivity of lenses and possible scratch damage. How come you haven't bought protective case and show ppl how to mount it? Good vid. btw

  • What about the battery? I have a camera and in this time I use at 0°C and the life battery is only 16 minutes

  • Super handy, thanks. Got one yesterday for Christmas. Have you tried downloading and editing to PC? That's most likely how I'll be doing things. Just makes it easier to edit using Filmora along with my GoPro footage. Is file transfer faster using the USB connection? WiFi seems a little slow to me...

    • I, too want to edit on my PC. I am creating full 360 video and viewing them using my Samsung Odyssey VR headset. Here's my workflow, so if anyone comes up with anything better, please let me know: after filming in 5.7K, 30 fps, I take the card out of the camera, put it in it's little SD converter, plug it into my computer's SD slot, and transfer the files to my PC. Once I verify that they made it, I reformat the card (exFAT is the only way it will work for me). Then, I open "Insta360 Studio for One X Beta" and convert the files to .mp4 but at 3840x1920. I cannot seem to trim them or anything else in this program. Once I have the .mp4 files, I edit them in the editing program I use, Pinnacle Studio 21. It can handle the 4K files and I can do the normal things: add text, trim clips, etc. When I save them, I can the view them in 360 using my headset running Windows Mixed Reality. It's a real hoot to watch, especially since I hang this camera under my quadcopter. My next step will be to find an editor that can handle the full 5760x2880 360 files the camera can create. I'm pretty sure Adobe Premier will do that, but it requires a monthly fee.

  • when you save it to TH-vision where does it go, I can not have it go to my TH-vision location. Also how do you get it to save to GooglePhotos?

I did so many errors yesterday. Short and simple I just subscribe to your channel, waiting for more videos and THANK YOU, THANK YOU,....

  • Great video but I can;t see how I can edit videos directly off the SD card, mine will only let me edit once I have downloaded the footage onto my phone. Can you confirm?

      Neill PearsonNeill Pearson28 วันที่ผ่านมา
    • It was a miscommunication on my part by editing I meant you could trim the video before you import it so you don’t have to bring over a long section if you just want a small part

      Air PhotographyAir Photography28 วันที่ผ่านมา
  • I think the best option is to view this video completely at one sitting. This way you know that it is structured into a series of loose "chapters". Now I can come back to this video and use it to help me work with the features it need at each step. Brad P said "perfect timing". I totally agree. I have had my camera about 2 weeks but didn't use it until I got a new iPad tablet last week. (BTW: Most android tablets don't have a powerful enough processor. I learned the hard way, and had to return it for the latest iPad). I a have a question. I was my under the impression that one had to export 5.7K video to a computer to edit it. I use Windows based PowerDirector 360, so that I can do titling and color correction, but I do want to try on-iPad editing that you demonstrated. Really great tut. And you absolutely have to do the advanced usage tuts ASAP. I subscribed and added a "thumbs up". 😄
