But seriously, nice video computerex! I see you also did something to clone the inputs to multiple DG's?
Anyhow, I think I'll just continue to finish my aerobatics video too.


Giezer1984: those are some good videos you have there. I also laughed about the one with the DG docking, hearing the part from "Jiskefet", where juffrouw jannie comes in the office (to foreign people: it's just a dutch joke).

hehe me too McDuck! Mine isn't really about formation or aerobatics, it just has a couple scenes with DG4's in formation.

He used an addon he made to fly them in formation..I forget what its called, but you can download it in his support forum here on this site.

Cam Studio, hypercam, or Fraps. (trial edition limits each clip length to 30 seconds)

Hi Istochnikov,

Nice video mate, though I didn't really like the music that much. I liked the info you displayed through out the film, really helps the viewer understand whats going on. Overall, great work! Welcome to the forum.

I just finished my first video composition Its just a simple flight to the moon with an unusual landing that came to my mind. But is enough to test what a great video can be made with orbiter and after effects. I was inspired by your "space cowboy" video, Tex. Just let me know what you think.

Very nice video Whatu, I'm glad to hear my video inspired you.

My thoughts on the video...


Pros:
  • I liked the music.
  • The intro was nice, with slow transitions and fades of the earth and DG4.
  • Very good job with the camera shake effects.
  • My fav shot was at 1:48, excellent flyby!
  • The timing was just about spot on through the whole video.
  • Nice job fading the flight phase from earth to moon.
  • I liked the ending as you zoomed out, very cool!
Cons:
  • I thought you spent a bit too much time with scenes over the moon during the decent
  • Although the landing was different, I think a proper trip using the Transfer MFD or TransX would be cooler (just my opinion here).
  • No credits in the video
Overall I think you did a very good job with this for your first video. Its a heck of alot better than most first attempts I see with any sim/game. If you haven't tried THIS tutorial for going to the moon using the Transfer MFD, it's worth a read, it's how I learned to get there. Thanks for sharing the video with us.

PS: Did you actually edit the video with Adobe After Effects or were you just using the term generally? What software suite do you have?

Thank you very much Tex!

Yeah I agree with you, the descent part is definitely the worst one, I spent less time on it because I wanted to finnish .

And the trip was everything but a proper trip! it was a lol trip because I was controlling the ship and recording on the fly, so for example after recording tli burn i had to turn retrogade and slow by 1000 m/s .
And more things..
But as thats not showing.... I guess it doesnt matter for the first try.

In next videos I think ill feature MFD's footage. (and a proper trip )

And there are no credits for the same reason, just wanted to finnish kinda quick.

And yes I used solely After Effects CS3, though im a real newbie at it.

Thank you for the feedback! now I just got to have another idea for a video.... it's hard to be original ...

No one told me After Effects had camera shake! Good, now I don't have to waste money on Sony Vegas for that effect
