More video fun...

We had the Modutrak layout setup over the holidays and I took some more video. I know the music is overly dramatic (drives Skibbe crazy - thus my incentive...) but it was fun to throw together. Makes me want to do a "best of n scale" feature film. Maybe a kickstarter project? Hmmm....

Love it... how does your standard differ from FreeMo-N?
That slider you use for the video is SLICK.

Someone needs to do a screen grab of that Zephyr for the header image file

jeezuzzfrigginghhhhhhhhaaaawwwsshit!

I was wondering how you got all those nice backgrounds (as opposed to the granny boobs & butts of ours at the show) until I saw your "studio"  :D

Still, wow.
What camera you use?
And what you use for the slow tracking shots?

Very much dig the shots with the silhouette of the train passing by on the far module.

Very cool.

I met Feather River Chuck at the GTE show and we were both shaking our heads in wonder at the magic of "those Modutrak guys."

Chapeau!

Not bad for a bunch of hockey players..... :lol:
The music may be a bit dramatic, but I like the score when it cuts to the Hiawatha crossing the Wisconsin Dells bridge.
This is about 1000% better than anything I could do, but I do have a question about the depth of field/focus. Can you improve that at all, or is that a limitation with the camera, or is that what you are trying to do?

As for the granny parts....it is an advantage of the layout height. Those things sag out of view!

Best wishes, Dave
If you lend someone $20, and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

I really liked the forced focusing, it keeps your eyes on the center.  My only omplaint is that it wasn't longer!

Loved it.  Really well done.

Very good example of how good camera technique is necessary to properly share excellent modeling.  Bravo!

That's what she said!

But seriously, the production on this was pretty amazing. I really enjoyed this! I look forward to more of this!

Gorgeous modeling and photography!  But with that soundtrack, I was expecting a Bullet train @ 00:59.
