Video made with Shotcut/GES augmented with Blender

Using GES to create realistic “Virtual Tour” of cities …

I like to share this new video I made with “Google Earth Studio” augmented with Blender for 3D objects. Appears the results is quite realistic for “virtual tour of cities”. Using Singapore Harbour for this demo - will then try other cities.

The final video (starting at 1:00) is clearly Shotcut (my favorite video editor) adding some text animated (using Shotcut) with filters “mask in file” and 3D LUTS (the latter is my first attempt using in Shotcut :slight_smile: )

Appreciate feedback …
I will be making another video but with “3D landscape with buildings etc” of Singapore harbour as shown in this video and compare the “realistic” effect.

Update this with more “elaborate detailed” 3D models added … my largest 3D landscape I had tried to consolidate.

Learn quite a few tricks in techniques managing large landscape with many assets :slight_smile:

It looks like Singapore may have changed just a little bit since I lived there … from 1972-75! I sure would love to go back and visit.

well will have to wait till travel freeze is over … :slight_smile:


Just to reveal how far back my time there goes … we used to hire a boat and go over to Sentosa island and play capture the flag, all over the island - nothing was there except the remains of the WWII gun emplacements and bunkers. Now my understanding is that Sentosa is something of a resort - ??

Yes … Sentosa is a resort island … with Universal Studio and other entertainment located there. Here’s my updated video version of Singapore Harbour … if you are interested.

In celebrating the coming Singapore National Day on August 9th virtually in view of the “lock down”, here’s a music video that me and my wife made for all to enjoy.

It has a medley of 4 songs each with different dance motion with MMD models, with Google Earth assets and some stages that I build/supplemented or modified based on “real environment”.
