Hi guys,

I hope you don't mind me posting this here? It's a little off topic and probably belongs in the Movie Makers forum but it's a little different to what is usually posted there and I would like to share it here initially to give it more of an airing. I don't mind if mods wish to move it later (hopefully not delete it). It is also produced using Wings Of Prey which has had quite a bad rap from some of the simming community (which I count myself part of). Perhaps a little unfair but there lies a can of worms and I won't go there.

Anyway. It's an attempt at making a virtual airshow with game/sim footage. Hope you have time to give it a view.

The Wings of Prey
Airshow 2011
(a virtual airshow)

I had the idea for this a while ago after the introduction of the flyby camera. I've been to a few airshows in recent years and thought it would be fun to try and create a virtual airshow using some of the warbirds from Wings of Prey.

I've used a few filters and motion to try to give the video that hand-held-camera, spectator type of feel to it and used some actual airshow audio in parts to add to the illusion.

Please forgive my meagre display of aerobatics. You'll see more rolls than in a bakery!

Check out the P-51's screaming whine as it zooms past the camera! It displays the paintscheme of 'Big Beautiful Doll', sadly lost at Duxford this year. You'll also notice that this aircraft is predominant in the video. It gave me the best angles and the reflections on that chrome surface are very nice!

Special thanks to Fenris and MadMass for the skins.

Crank up the volume!

Not bad, although sme feedback if i may.

I enjoyed the close-in camera position, but would like to have seen more of a variation in cameras, perhaps sometimes showing the aircraft in relation to the ground/landscape.

More aircraft types would have been nice.

Finally, a dramatic landing ending would have been the way to go for me. No landing was a bit disappointing.

Having said all that, the game doesn't look half bad in this video. I can't criticise anyone for playing it, as I enjoy a buzz about in Hawx 2 sometimes. Nice video.

Nice Glo.. Dan Wop is a little limited in the camera angles... but it is a thing of beauty..

My youtube comment wasn't approved for the video:

"That looks real! Man! Gawd!"

I guess that was offensive. ?
