Hi Dale, I watched your film and wow what a lot of birds, incredible. Great voice over and music score. I see that you and I have the same camera and editing system, Canon XHA1 & Vegas 8.1? What frame rate did you use for the film, 24/30F, or 60i? I have an idea for you to try with a small clip that I've worked out with Vegas that may eliminate the jitter.

I generally 1/60th to 1/100th in 60 i, I then interpolate to 60 p. then set the play rate at 75? After that I use a velocity envelope to adjust to take out flicker if that is an issure.

Now if you refer to the Pan, and I think you are, I am all ears on that one!!! I shoot so much sky i need to improve on that somehow.

That's a pretty good film for all the obstacles you had. Personally, I would have ditched the music and kept just natural sound - but then, we don't get many geese here and that sound provides a sense of place and season.

I was at a conference all day yesterday, and one of the speakers talked about his trip to Cape May, and seeing the snow geese arriving there. But I think it was another speaker, talking about gannets, who showed so pictures where the birds DID occasionally suffer mid-air collisions - and the victims looked most surprised to have been knocked out of the sky!
