Now in 2020, I shot with a Go Pro Max about 64 movie clips consisting of maybe a dozen
hours, leading to about 1 TerraBytes of video footage (the typical HD size from 10 years ago).
24 clips made it into Final Cut, a software which makes the technical aspects easy.
The hard part is to select. Here is a Day in the life of Knill:

which had however only windows software. Here was the movie from 2010:
