Here's a WIP clip for the "Letter Home" video.

Only one sound and no music. That'll come later.

Doesn't look like two months of work does it?  Wink

It was suppose to be a small quicky of a movie, but I've never been one to keep things simple. I had to build 3 air bases, Moncton, Summerside and Charolettown, for both FSX and FS9. And in exchange for the use of the BCATP hangers, I've had to help the Flight Ontario group with scenery objects of a Harvard, Anson and Tiger Moth.

The hardest shot so far was the scene where the camera follows the jeep as it drives by. Trying to do camera matching between FS9 and Carrara Pro for the entire scene proved to be too difficult in the amount of time I allowed myself. You'll notice there are no Poser figures in view once the camera has turned 90 degrees. I spent the entire Thanksgiving holiday on just that one scene. 15 hours for 15 seconds is a little too much. Smiley

I still have to build a train station set-up and a stretch of track across the Tantramar Marsh (stretch on border between NB and NS) in Trainz.

The classic Harvard engine sound came off a YouTube clip. I'll be writing for permission to use now that I have this little clip finished.
