Just too much to try and remember from yesterday. That’ll teach me to play ~20 hours straight.
That said, I’m putting together a video from tonights Vianden battle. I have over 2 hours of footage from 3-4 hours of filming, and I’ve been contemplating doing a narrated version or just doing the usual title sequences. But neither kinda feels right. Think I’ll go with a bit more of a montage thing.
There’s a little sequence where I turn off icons so you can see if you can still spot half of whats going on (ha!).
I tried to capture several things about this battle: the changes of direction, the “zones” of separate forces, the ant lines :)
But what I like most about this footage is that it captures some of the contrasting perspectives on what’s going on overhead. From the ground footage, you can see bombers and fighters coming in and strafing ABs and that seems to be the bulk of it. The friendly airforce seems to be absent. But drift away from the city center where the vis limit is being taxed and icons begin to hove into view revealing a massive aerial battle going on all around the city.
I had some footage that drifted up a lot higher and showed the multiple layers of dogfighting going upwards at different altitudes, but I porked it by turning on some of my GM HUD, so I can’t use it :(
Must remember to enable sound recording in Fraps next time.
