Instructions for Video Recording UAPs/UFOs (Beginner's Guide):
1. Camera Setup:
- Use a Panasonic Lumix GH6 camera or get one converted to a full spectrum camera from LifePixel.com.
- Attach an IR filter on the lens.
- Use a micro 4:3 camera for shooting 4K video at 120 fps.
2. Lens Selection:
- Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 12-35mm f/2.8 ASPH. POWER O.I.S. Lens (Micro Four Thirds) is recommended.
- Set the lens to a wide angle for capturing fast movements of UAPs/UFOs.
3. IR Filters for Full Spectrum Cameras:
- Choose Super Color (590 nm) or Deep BW (830 nm) filters.
- Use the Super Color filter for a blend of visual light and IR image.
4. Tripod Usage:
- Always use a stable tripod for shooting UAPs/UFOs.
- Avoid hand-holding the camera to prevent shaking.
5. Camera Settings:
- Select standard video mode (not monochrome or log).
- Set record quality to 420/10bit/LongGOP, LPCM, 300 Mbps, 119.88 fps, and 4096x2160 or 3840x2160 resolution.
6. Video Editing Software:
- Recommended choices are Adobe Premiere or DaVinci Resolve.
- Adobe Premiere is used in this guide.
7. Footage Processing in Adobe Premiere:
- Set sequence settings to match the original footage settings (create a new sequence using AVCHD 1080p30 preset).
- Apply the Lumetri effect and add LUTs to maximize visibility of UAPs/UFOs.
- Experiment with different LUTs, exposure, contrast, and saturation settings.
- Scrub through footage using the timeline bar or play it at normal speed while looking for UAPs/UFOs.
- Add markers (press the M key) to identify UFO instances.
8. Clip Editing and Rendering:
- Use the blade tool (press the C key) to clip and copy UFO instances to a higher track for individual editing.
- Adjust the duration of each instance to a slower playback speed (e.g., 2% to 20%).
- Render the short clips with adjusted settings (change in and out points on the timeline) for social media posting.
- Use a slower frame rate (e.g., 30 fps) and 1080p resolution (1920x1080) for optimal social media compatibility.
9. Posting on YouTube:
- Once rendered, the footage is ready for posting on YouTube.
10. Posting on Instagram:
- Create a new sequence with dimensions 1080x1920 for vertical format display.
- Insert the rendered footage into the vertical sequence.
- Rotate the clip 90 degrees to fit the vertical format.
- Render the clip using the appropriate preset (e.g., Match Source - Adaptive High Bitrate).
- Transfer the rendered footage to your phone via email.
- Receive the footage on your phone and post it to Instagram, ensuring the duration is less than 60 seconds.
