s.

if you're in Australia or Europe then set your phone to 25 frames per second it's going to help you remove or reduce the chance of any flickering happening from any lights that are in your scene so I'm in Australia right now so we're going to set it to 25 and once you've selected that you can just tap anywhere on the screen to go back into the previous menu the next setting you need to look at is the resolution so this is the actual quality of the files that you're going to be capturing across the top you've got the different ass ratios or that you can actually crop the footage down so that it is square or so it's got the black bars if you're creating a more cinematic style video but the default here should be sixteen by nine but the settings you're going to want to change here is where it says 4k 2160p now obviously with this phone it supports 4k but we can also change this resolution look at the options of three k 2k 1080p 720p and 540 P now ideally here you would want to be using at least 1080p but if your phone supports it then you could go up to a 4k which is obviously gonna give you a higher quality video but it's also gonna chew up some more storage space as well it also sounds like we got a couple of birds in the background so once you've got your resolution picked at 4k and you can choose the actual bitrate or the quality of that 4k recording so if we go back through here and see economy is the lowest quality setting we have you've then got standard filmic quality and filmic extreme now filmic extreme is the best quality that you can actually get in this app and it's actually in a lot of cases going to give you a much better quality video than the built-in camera apps will on your phone so if you've got the storage space available and you want the best quality recordings out of your phone's camera then you want to be using filmic Xtreme so we'll tap on the screen to get back out of that also in here you've got control over your audio and you get to choose if you want to use your camera microphone or if you do have an external microphone plugged in then you can pick external microphone as well and you've also got control over the quality once again of your audio recording I'd suggest leaving this at 48 kilohertz but if you want to record your videos without audio and you can turn that on there as well go back out of this now if you want to switch to the front-facing camera you can do that down here as well there is the camera button that'll swap that out for you and you've also got the option down here to turn on or off optical image stabilization or stabilization if it's built into your phone once you've got all your settings locked down the way that you like them you can actually come up here to presets and you can save presets in here so you can see in the presets here I've got a preset for jb 4k so that would be my preset with everything set to the highest quality for 4k recording because that will be the default that I'm going to use for most recordings so you can save your presets in there you might have one saved for 1080p one for 4k it really depends on what you're looking to achieve with the videos you're creating so we'll go back out of here and back out of here again okay so now that we've gone through the settings the next thing you want to do before you start recording is to set up your actual shot we've got a square and a circle on screen so this square here you can actually pick it up and you can move it around this is your focus Square so it's gonna focus it on whatever you drop it on so if I put my hand in front of the screen here now if I drop the square on my hand it's going to change the focus so it's focusing on my hand now if we actually press on that Square you can see it's gone red now when I move my hand away then that isn't going to change that's locked the focus point at that point so it's an easy way that you can lock down your focus now exactly the same with the circle so the circle is your exposure or your brightness of your shot so whatever I let this go on here it's going to adjust the brightness accordingly so if you move it over here you can see it darkens the shot down if I move it back here then it's going to adjust for wherever I've left it and if I tap it again you can see it's gone red it's now locked in the exposure and the focus at that point so as things change here is not going to automatically adjust which is really really powerful for creating professional-looking videos you don't want the light to be constantly changing and automatically adjusting as you move your camera around or as things change in your scene and obviously if you want to go back to Auto then you just tap on the circles or the square and everything will go back to normal so in this case here if we were filming this shot here we would probably want to lock down our focus on the chair here so we'd move it there and we would tap on the screen to lock it at that point and exactly the same for the exposure so we might want to expose for the chair here so brighten that up a bit and tap on that once we're happy now our shot is locked off at those settings so that's the most basic way that you can do it now you can actually go into a lot more control on those you get a long press on either the circle or the square to bring up more advanced options or you can come down the bottom to this target this circle with the smaller circle inside it we tap on that you can see that we get these sliders on either side so now that we've locked our exposure we can actually come across here and swipe this slider up and down to brighten and to darken our shot to really dial in and get the look at that we're after and exactly the same with the focus we've got a focus slider here that we can adjust manually the focus as well so I put my hand back in here I can adjust it until my hand is in focus let it go pull it away and everything is locked off at that point so that's really really powerful especially they have this controls on our smart phones and the last key setting here that I'd highly recommend you lock down as well so I've done the focus we've done the exposure or the brightness so that those aren't going to change the last one is your color temperature you'll want to kick that into manual mode as well because that's another one that could automatically change as things change in your scene so if a cloud came over it could definitely change the whole look and feel of your video so if we tap on these three circles down the bottom here then you can see here it's doing an automatic adjustment we're currently on a WB automatic white balance if we press on that you can see that we're locked in the white balance if we're happy with that automatic reading we've now locked it at that point now obviously you've got a heap of controls in here to change that look up we've got other presets down the bottom here that we can cycle through and you can see the scene totally changes based on which one of these presets we are picking you can also save your own in here as presets as a and B and customise those up for how you'd like to look but what I recommend you start is with auto white balance because it normally does a pretty damn good job of analyzing your scene or your shot and getting that white balance correct but you can see here that it's giving you the color temperature it's currently reading around six thousand two hundred and eighty and it's fluctuating a little bit that's that automatic adjustment because we haven't locked this down but you can actually grab these sliders and you can make manual adjustments yourself so if we want it to be a cooler shot we'd put it down and add more blue in if we want to add more warmth into the shot then we would lift this up and once you've got it about where you would want it then you can just let that slider go tap off the screen and your shot then is locked down now obviously for this shot we were sitting with my hand in focus here so we can tap back on the screen here and obviously readjust our focus back to the couch there so that's how simple it is then obviously all you need to do when you want to record is to press the record button down in the bottom right hand corner and you can see that the recording timer is counting up but I really like about this app too besides the fact that you can monitor your audio while you're recording is that it's clearly showing you how much battery you've got left and how much storage you've got left and obviously because these are our phones these are things that can run out pretty quick so it's awesome to have that there to make it so easy while you're actually recording your videos so that's a quick walkthrough on filmic Pro and all the settings you need to know to get the best results out of it now this was filmed on an Android device the settings and everything are exactly the same on iOS as well so that's a complete walkthrough with everything you need to know to start getting great results using filmic Pro on either your iPhone or your Android device now if you are going to be creating videos like this where you are presenting to camera and you're going to be shooting them by yourself so you know anyone there to help you and if you want to use the primary camera the main high quality camera on your smartphone then that can be rather difficult because the screen is going to be facing away from you it's gonna be hard to monitor that you actually are recording that everything looks the way you wanted and that there's nothing changing or distracting in your shot while you're actually recording so there's a couple of ways that you can do this if you have an iPhone or you're using iOS devices then there is an app called filmic remote john bursee is going to tie directly into filmic Pro so what you do is you install the filmic remote on an additional iOS device maybe an iPad or a second phone if you've got one I don't know how many people have two iPhones but maybe some of you do a second iOS device put that up on there and you're able to see what's going on a mirror your phone screen to that device and you can also control it as well so you can remotely trigger the recording and check that everything is how you'd like if you don't have an iOS device or multiple iOS devices you can also use a piece of software called reflector and that will let you wirelessly monitor your phone screen iOS or Android to a computer either a Mac or a PC now we do have a video talking through that process of setting up reflector and how it works in a lot more detail I'll put it up in the cards now but in that video we've also covered some other options for you as well so if reflector or filmic Pro Remote don't work for you then make sure you check out that video because there's a lot more options in there as well so now that you've got your filming sorted it's time to turn your iPhone or your Android device into the ultimate video creation powerhouse so check out the video linked on screen to see our review of the best video editing apps on both platforms that are going to give you desktop like editing functions right on your smart device and I'll see you soon.
