Way back when we built the very first SOLOSHOT prototype, we realized capturing the moment is really just the beginning of making a great video. Sure, standing around for hours pointing a camera is both tedious and demanding (although not as hard as finding someone who’ll do it for you!), yet that’s just the beginning of the pain. You’ve still got hours ahead of you rewatching all that video searching for highlights.
That’s why we made SOLOSHOTedit, our highlight suggestion software for Mac and Windows PC. In just a few short minutes, SOLOSHOTedit lets you turn hours of SOLOSHOT3 video into a highlight reel of the best clips from your session. SOLOSHOTedit suggests highlights based on activity from your session while offering you a number of ways to trim, expand, add or subtract clips.
Once you're happy with your highlights, simply export locally for use with your favorite full-featured editor or share directly from SOLOSHOTedit to Facebook, YouTube and the SOLOSHOTapp.
Why are we releasing the Beta to everyone?
In order to help us make the algorithms and interface better as fast as possible! Our highlight finding software has been working well in smaller beta testing for applications like soccer and surf, while activities like equestrian and kiteboarding need more development and user feedback.
The only way to solve that problem is to get as many people using it as often as possible. So thank you in advance for diving into the future with us so together we can make the painful editing process a relic of the past!
