69SIM 20160612 - Curves (MadDog's Curves)

Discussion in 'Multimedia' started by 69SIM, Jun 13, 2016.

  1. Hello!

    Another attempt at using the GPS and DashWare software along with some nice curvy roads. This time a couple of us crazy Netriders decided to brave the icicles for a early morning ride up Bells Line to Mount Victoria, Katoomba and then back around. This section of video was taken from MadDogMadDog's road, which I have dubbed MadDog's Curves.

    A few things to note:
    1) Using two cameras, front one on the right hand fork, the back one just above the exhaust.
    2) When cutting the GPS data from the GPS software, it tends to bork up the first set of data points so the grade gauge and the time counter are both screwed up, though the grade gauge rights itself after 20 seconds or so, the time is just out by 20-30 seconds.
    3) The audio from the rear camera has some awesome exhaust sound but also suffered from some crackle from the microphone so I had to tweak it and it's not as nice as I had hoped.
    4) The music was written by me, rushed to completion but I hope it adds a funky element to the video.

    Enjoy :)

  15. 69SIM69SIM I asked chilliman64chilliman64 if he noticed a life size orange giraffe on the opposite side of the road on The Great Western Highway after leaving Katoomba somewhere lol. By chance did you catch it on either of your cams ?. I think it was a plant nursery.
  16. I saw a gorilla, it may be the same place.
  17. Let me check :)
  18. I saw the giraffe as well. The place sells garden pots and water features etc.
  19. Gee I hope you did otherwise there was something in the bacon and egg roll from Pips place :bored: that or the cheese cake !
  20. yep that's the one, I think it's the same place.
