Instead of watching football downstairs with my wife [she is the football fan, I am not], I decided to combine all of my dash cam footage together from my last trip from AR, through OK, to KS, speed it up X8 and then render that at X8. I tried Davinci but it would just manage to crash after an hour or so, always at a different place. Wasn't happy with the copy that I did on Filmora 9 plus I didn't have that on my desktop, just my laptop [not a weak laptop mind you - MSI with 32 GB of ram and a 1060 TI video card and two hard drives] and my desktop has quite a bit more horse power with 64 GB of ram, 7 hard drives and a 1080 TI. I ended up getting the 1080 TI last Christmas because I couldn't stand having my laptop have a better video card than my desktop. I ended up using HD Movie Maker that I paid just $10 from the Microsoft store! Out of all of the rendering software, that one seem to use both the CPU and the GPU the most effectively although it still took several hours.
The trip has several saves but since it is speeded up so much and muted, it is difficult to find it. Several about an hour into the trip and once near the end. Used my Uniden R1, Waze and Highway Radar
After seeing Vortex's video on Dash Cams, I might need to get a new dash cam soon. The VAVA does an excellent job in the daylight but will pinch quite a bit when traveling on the highway in the dark.
My weird new hobbies. Sometimes I will watch the once speeded up version that displays the speed for fun. My wife is starting question my sanity.

One fun part of the trip is around the 44 second mark of this video, I had the top down the whole way when my hat blew off, went behind my head and then blew back into the car, landing in the seat next to me. Best hat save ever!

If you're ever trying to do really basic editing of footage, speeding it up, cutting/splicing, etc avidemux works really well, it's free, lightweight, and has tons of customizable settings for the encoder. I like it because it doesn't have 500 unnecessary buttons all over the interface if you're just doing quick editing.

Thank you. I very much like your work. Moreover that it took hours for you. Your hardware is impressive and still the process has taken several hours. You should have included a slow mo on 0:44 with this most important save. :)
