It's taking my computer forever to convert the video format of this new camera. I'm not sure this is going to work out in the long run. The first clip is converting in Final Cut Express - it's been running for several hours already, and is claiming 14 hours to go. I have three of these clips, so ... it might be a while.

I may have to abandon FCE, it really kind of sucks in this regard. And there doesn't appear to be anything I can do to speed it up, short of dramatic loss of quality, which would eliminate the whole point of getting the new camera in the first place. If anyone has any recommendations for video editing software on the Mac that will take High Def MPEG4 natively ...

That's North Carolina clay - it's great dirt! Slick as all get out when sloppy wet, but when just a little damp, finer soil for dirt biking cannot be found.

Final cut express = FCE basically as useless as windows movie maker, final cut pro is another option but i have always used adobe and the new premiere is totes!

For sure! That's a great shot. Looks almost like I actually know what I'm doing. Just goes to show, don't believe everything you see.

I finished 16th in my class of 20, and 111th out of 160 overall. I'm currently ranked 11th out of 30 racers in my class. I was 7th before this race, but they just dropped the lowest race, and that moved me down a few positions. I thought drops were supposed to help?

Precisely! Rev. Redbeard knows what I'm going through to direct, cast, edit, produce, mix, cut, convert, render, export, and upload these seemingly simple helmet cam videos.

RRB, that Adobe CS5 premier really looks awesome. I wish I had the cash for that right now, I'd be all over it.

In the meantime, I think I've found a workable solution:

GOPRO HD -> MPEG-Streamclip -> Quicktime AIC format -> FCE -> iTunes M4V -> Vimeo

This results in about a 5x file size increase for the AIC format as compared to the original MP4, however, FCE will render a 45 minute AIC formatted clip in about 20 minutes, vs 16 hours for the original MP4. And MPEG-STREAMCLIP only takes about 30 minutes or so to convert the MP4 to AIC. I'm not saying it makes sense. Knowing why MPEG-Streamclip can decode and rewrite MP4 to AIC format in about 30 minutes or so, yet FCE takes 16 hours is above my pay grade.

At any rate, this seems to be the most economical way forward for now. Maybe when I grow up and I spring for CS5 and get not only the cool video suite, but also all the other great tools for image editing as well. But the budget won't support it right now. Me and Tarheel Wheeler are saving up for Husabergs.

Good job, just keep at it, you will get used to the 200. It took me a few races to really feel comfy on the 300 after years on pig bikes. Now that that I have been back on the 525, I'm going to need retraining

The 300 was/is just as you describe, as far as feeling every jolt. The forks in stock form are little better than a jackhammer. Mine still need some tweaking. I am even toying with swapping the ones off my 525 and seeing how they work, 'cause I'm real happy with those.

I have heard this is actually a good one for the 650R as well.... I might have to start looking around for donor forks!
