OK - just downloaded the trial version of Sony Vegas 10 (64 bit) - free - works just fine - can edit & save

still dont know the limitations (in any) - other than it asks you to go & buy the full sw when you close it - but you dont have to!

Great - I've needed that for my new laptop for ages

you have to register to activate it anyway (did that)

folks seem to be saying 30 day trial - cant find that officially anywhere

theres probably "a way around that" (!)

(and there seem to be other cheaper "consumer" Vegas variants other than "pro")

If you go for Sony Vegas Pro HD 9 its only £25 after your 30 day trial, I've installed it on a couple of computers at home and it seems to work fine. You can even use one machine as a slave to do all the rendering without clogging up your main computer, but I haven't tried that yet, I find with 720p if I keep the clips down to 4 mins it takes roughly 30 mins to render 720p

Thanks Tom - £25 for Vegas Pro 9 is great value - I'm on 8 on my old machine

(£500+ for 10 is a bit steep!)

Lots of interesting stuff here. I've still got so much to learn, I'm still struggling with getting my second CD ripped to mp3 :(

More fun at Ellwood! This was filmed the same day as the original

Cruising at Ellwood video posted earlier, but the wind had backed off a bit to around 6-8mph. Still plenty of fun to be had :)

Well, I have finally sort of got the basic hang of Sony Vegas editor (on trial), and put together some footage from the same day I did the Voltij:

Well done Chris - award yourself a Guinness

nice flying toowelcome to the world of video editing - time consuming isnt it?

(and your vertical aim still needs tweaking on the sighting-device)

Time consuming? TIME CONSUMING??? Sheesh, it's takes FOR EV ER !

Yeah, aim is out on the high stuff. Have a aiming device fitted to the helmet (a lightweight Aldi's ski helmet) now - and I've got rid of the date / time stamp :mad: ..

Plus trawling through loads of music to get something you think strikes the right note!

Thanks for the kind comments guys :) !

Waiting for sun is going to take a while: we're not having a proper summer here :( .....

Obviously my time taken included learning all about rendering, ripping, the ins and outs of the editing software, and yes Rog, I was amazed how long it took to find the right note!

Whey-hey, finally some slope action PLUS sunshine! It's been a dreary, dull summer here.

The little keycam works so much better in sunshine, so when exploring a new slope

(closer to Tralee than my normal slope at Camp for northerlies) I had to take advantage! My old Voltij has been with me for a while, but keeps on getting better..

It's an all-carbon version with flaps and ailerons wings and solid joiners.

I didn't build as per Aeromod's suggestion of aileron servos in the fuse -

I stuffed all 4 servos in the wings as per conventional practice. You tell me if that slows the roll rate down!
