Great flying Brian. What time of day were you up? Also how do you get the title to hide behind the Ange?
Cheers twickers14! Thank you for the kind words!
time of day= midday
how to get the title behind the Angel:
# frame the video so only sky is above the wings
using Powerdirector 16 for editing
#import mp4
# trim both ends of video
# place video on two separate timelines
# place text on its own timeline, between the two video timelines
# select one of the videos
# use chroma key to key out the sky, (just like a green screen effect)
thus producing a video with transparency above the wings
# edit the opacity of the text until you are happy with the result
# add suitable music
# Produce a new HD mp4 , for posting on YouTube.
**** The hierarchy in Powerdirector means the lowest timeline is at the front of the
eventual new mp4 video ***
More expensive software 'overlays' the layers ... but being me I love the challenge of doing it myself :)

Crimbo. Sorry to have asked you to set that out for me. Of course I don’t have Power Director, typical. I use iMovie on my Mac and it gets me there most of the time although I could use some more titles etc, all my family are bored with the same ones!! Are you planning on having a go at A2 C of C or perhaps you have it already? Thought I ought to have a bash as one really needs it to fly anywhere here unless you are located on the Isle of Skye.

No problem, my friend. It was an easy pleasure to lay out my workflow.
-maybe just explore chroma keying ?
A2 CofC: No, no plans to take it.

Great thread Brian, I enjoyed the video, the discussion with twickers on the overlay and most of all that beaming smile on Noah's face while riding Neddy. My hope is that ione day Noah will look back at that picture and remember what a special grandfather he has. Cheers to you my friend.

Cheers Dragonfly Joe, you are very kind and your 'hope' is so heartwarming!
I’m so pleased a 2 min video generated so much fun all round...
