Here’s my current setup to convert the 300+ gb of videos I’ve captured from the Game On Expo into editable footage. I started off with my normal process of converting to 180 SBS , but then found this recent workflow posted by Google.
Both of the laptops are running Ubuntu to use the converter app since I don’t have an Apple computer, and Google has yet to release a Windows version of the software. It’s a long and challenging process to just get things prepared for editing, but in the end, it will all be worth it.
I’ve now implemented two external backup drives into the process so I don’t have to keep swapping 16gb thumb drives out. I know there are far better solutions for the process (networking, or installing Ubuntu on a more powerful PC), but I’m doing this all on a shoestring budget as a “hobbyist”.
I’ll keep the blog updated with my progress.
