This is a brief look at the results of the first run we had with the in-car video yesterday.
As mentioned previously, I had some compatability problems with the camera not talking to the Mac, so this was done with Windows Movie Maker. It stutters a bit near the end and the final title screen looked good before it was saved. I couldn’t be bothered fixing it once I saw it.
The acceleration video was for historical reasons as I want something to compare to after I (eventually) trick things up a little.
The mount is clamped to the headrest posts on the driver’s seat for most of this video. For the outside shots, it’s clamped to the passenger seat headrest posts. The long post extending out from the driver’s seat in the photo has 3 holes drilled to provide alternate camera mounting spots. The camera is mounted in the middle hole in the photo above. There’s alternate holes about 10cm to the left and to the right.
I was pretty happy with it as a test run. I have to work on some more angles, but this is definitely a good start.
