Google Earth (Read 1294 times)

    Okay, so my technique needs a little work as evidenced by this video, but here is the idea...

     

     

    1) Go out for a run with my Garmin watch

    2) Export a GPX file

    3) Import the same file into google earth and record the 3D flyover

    4) Add a little music and some editing

    5) Post to Youtube

     

    This was a run I did in Paris the other day (vacation).  The GPS points are a little out (I am not spiderman flying over buildings) and I need to do a better job of encircling the landmarks (Eiffel Tower, Louvre, etc.) so they are more visible but other than that I thought it was pretty cool.

      Nice!

       

      You can also slow down a touch and pan a bit wider to get the monuments.

        Thanks

         

        Will try that tomorrow.  Plan to hit the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, Louvre, Champs D'Elysees and a few others tomorrow.

          That is cool! Makes me want to try Google earth now... How do you record the 3D flyover? Is that function built into Google earth? Or is that sort of a screen cap from a video editor?

            They flyover is google earth and I captured it using quicktime video capture (screen capture)

             

            Not sure if GoogleEarth has a built in video exported but I don't think so

              Loved it!!


              an amazing likeness

                 

                3) Import the same file into google earth and record the 3D flyover

                 

                 

                After I import the GPX (which works as expected)...can anyone give me some pointers on how to have Google Earth start the 3D flyover of the course I just imported? 

                 

                Update: Found it, all set.  Off to figure how to adjust the flyover altitude.....

                    Awesome!  I feel more cultured just having watched that.  How far was your run?  Were there a lot of runner's in Paris?

                    So bittersweet,
                    This tragedy
                    Won't ask for absolution;
                    This melody,
                    Inside of me,
                    Still searches for solution.
                    A twist of faith,
                    A change of heart
                    Cures my infatuation.
                    A broken heart, 
                    Provides the spark
                    For my determination.

                      My first attempt, the San Francisco Marathon flyover. I exported to Google Earth from GTC, then somehow, found a way to play the tour and record it with Quicktime Player New Screen Recording.

                        Running in Paris was pretty cool.  So much to look at.

                         

                        I didn't see all that many runners out when I was out but did see them at various other times of the day.

                          Well, I give up.  I can't figure out how to get Google Earth to start the 3D flyover of the course I just imported.

                           

                          And I'm not even hungover...

                            Can somebody tell me how to do this?  Be really specific....When you say "export" the file....How do you do that?  I upload my runs from my Garmin directly to RA....Not sure how I export them.
