My passion is photography but it is a work in progress.

FINAL CUT. (21/09/15)

As promised here is the edit of the Fahr M88 combining barley.
The sound is still not synchronised very well but I decided enough messing was enough and near enough was good enough. I did grade this video and it looks fine on the computer but I have a sneaking suspicion that YouTube have had a go themselves. It's good for folk using pads and phones but a bit of a pest when you don't. It's free so I'm grateful.

Any criticism will be more than welcome as I get a bit lost editing video. The titles are much better but there is still bleed through the mask on the left hand edge you can see it at 0.16s.

  2. You have done a good bit of work on this video, love the operators view down at the flailing arms. Great.

    1. Peter , the views from the machine speeded up editing. The number of times I lost my balance made cutting shots of my feet, sky and trees an easy step.

  3. Harvesting is such fun to watch. Unfortunately, I rarely watch videos as they take up so much time from my Internet allotment.

  5. Some sweet camera work here, Adrian. I really like the camera's move in on the machine (near the beginning), and again from the driver's point of view at the end. Well done. McGregrr

    1. McGregor, the first is tripod mounted and the second is hand held, I don't like hand holding DSLRs and it's a nightmare on a sunny day. I am reasonably pleased with it.

  6. I liked your video. It shows all aspects of the field work. I can even feel the itchy dust from the barley. Now with cabs you miss the pleasure of itchy barley.

  7. Hi Adrian What is that comment with all the links doing on your blog? Now the video is fantasttic.Loved seeing the grain going into the truck and the movement of the truck and also you sitting beside the farmer filming the blades was going round great. The music suited the video.Just one small point. At the end you did not have a capital on the name William. You did ask us to let you know!!! All the hard work of filming and editing certainly paid off.

    1. Thanks Margaret. The comment was spam it's gone. I'm very disappointed with it. The video is okay but YouTube mashed it. Sometimes they do and others it's fine, I just can't work it out.

  8. My slight criticism would be the music, given the noise of the machinery I'm not sure I'd have added it. Loved it though

    1. Douglas, I could make the music much louder. It isn't very good but it does fill the gaps in the machine track when I have to cut and chop to synchronise it. Correction attempt to synchronise it.
      I need to do a lot more and another pair of hands would help.
