Hi,

I think a promotional video is a great idea.

It sounds like you know what you are doing with the video, though, may I add some tips? I have found this article to be pretty comprehensive for creating a great promo video:
https://valoso.com/blog/how-to-make-a-killer-promo-video/

Remember, it's not just about FG, but also about the audience and how they will benefit from said FG capabilities.

I can't wait to see FG's visual story!

Some posts regarding a rather more visual promotion of FlightGear on the main website have been split off to the new topic: More visual promotion of FlightGear.

Sound editing done, this is a final version of the promotional video without labels, watermarks or credits, so its purely for review.

Please let us know if you feel anything can be improved in terms of sound and titles/labelling only.

Thanks to everyone for this whole process. I'm aware that some of you have requested for more footage or have collaborated together for some, I just need to put it out that it was a difficult choice to eliminate some major things in order to allow the video to flow, as well as to maintain a certain quality.

Also a big thanks to Pinto for narration, unfortunately I chose not to use it because I made a serious mistake when I came up with the storyboard in that had too long gaps in between the sentences, so it was difficult not to let the viewer feel the awkward gaps in between the sentences. Sincere apologies and thank you for contributing to this project.

In it's current form,the video seems to sound better with the noises cut off. Technical:the volume of the aircraft rumble track should be around 40-50% instead of the current 100%.

Other sounds are fine being around at the current volume.

What do you mean by "cut off"? In English "cut off" either implies making a sound shorter (as in editing) or muting it (turning it off). So, I don't understand what you mean really.

"Noises" implies "noise", not just "sound". So, what are these "noises" you're referring to?

So by "aircraft rumble track" do you mean all sound effects?

And by 50% you mean they should be half as loud?

Music is fine in other words? No other sounds present that I can think of....

In this case "Cut off" = mute ;)

There are more sound effects than aircraft rumbles. For example,there are wheel squeaks on the runway. DON'T reduce their volume. They're just fine. Just reduce the volume of the rumble of the aircraft.

I've changed my opinion. Only these shots should have the aircraft noise turned down or muted.

-Supersonic flyby
-Airliner formation
-Blue/Yellow airshow(last aircraft only. A 0.5s delay is also acceptable.)

We don't really have a common ground then if you think it's so bad that muting it is better. So I'll wait for other people's opinion I think.

In the post-production world they're all "sound effects". "Rumble" would be thought of as a low frequency sound, like a low rumble from a machine room felt several rooms over on a big ship.

I think it looks good!
And am going disagree with Parnikkapore in that I think the sound is great.

Parnkikkapore, if you are going to suggest quite a lot of changes, might I request that you PM me and let me take all the feedback instead of the people here. Let's try to keep this thread uncluttered :)

@Pinto and @benrob0329, thank you very much, a lot of hard work was put into this video!

P.s. Pinto, I used your B-1 FGTape, and a few others that I can't remember off the bat.
