A couple of test videos of the layout.
Just trying to see if I can upload You tube vid's. Took a while but I eventually got there.
It's amazing how much you notice on film that you don't normally see. I've given myself a whole lot of work by doing this having to correct things I'd never normally noticed. I put my videocam on the back of a flat wagon and pulled it along with a Kreigslok. The balance of the wagon was poor because of its size relative to the flat wagon but I like the perspective. I've no idea where the editing software disc is to load onto this computer either as it got packed up when the old house got demolished so apologies for the bits either end which I haven't tidied up.
The idea was to have a few layers of scenery to create a false impression of depth.
I dug out the old handycam and had a bit of a go with it. Hadn't seen much action for a while.
I also found the editing software so have tidied up this last one.
I am starting to do short films of my models now as I have got the hang of posting them on the internet. I am trying to get an idea of what are the best perspectives and angles to shoot from. This first set are taken from above the models at various angles. These would probably give the impression of viewing from a bridge.
I've tried to do these from a few different angles to see what's the best. The ones which follow are from track level and below giving a track side or platform perspective.
Overall I think the best level is track level although below isn't bad. Viewed from above doesn't seem as good though.
I think I want to put a bit more thought into where the trees are. The autofocus seem to have gone for the trees and bushes instaed of the loco and coaches.
I thought it might be worth doing a short clip to add to a review to give a more three dimensional perspective to the item.
