Recently I was in Devon (south coast UK) to watch an airshow by the excellent RAF Red Arrows aerobatics team. Conditions were damp and cloudy and it was touch and go whether they would be able to fly, but they found a slight easing of conditions, and gave what they term as a “rolling display”.
I captured the full routine on my Panasonic camera in HD and edited it into a 7 minute video using Shotcut.
99% of the footage is mine - however I used only two shots from other youtube posters from the same event - I think these two extra shots can easily be identified.
I edited using 18.09.16 and can happily report it was a joy to use, with no major crashes or issues apart from regularly not being able to drag clips from the playlist to the timeline (got the red crossed out circle most times) which was frustrating. Had to use the “plus” button instead.
I decided not to use many fancy transitions or effects - just let the planes do the talking … Transitions were almost all dissolves.
Two features (new in 18.09) which were highly useful to me were “Ripple move” (great for inserting space in a very full timeline) and the new “Open other>Text” feature which is brilliant!
Also, the updated “snapping” settings worked a treat when moving/aligning clips in the timeline.
My video is below. Note it is 7 minutes long. I would welcome any constructive advice, whither it’s creative and/or technical. And yes - I could have done with a tripod!! Thank you!
