Wow! That has to be the best highlights you have done to date. So s m o o t h and touching. Very classy. Just love the two shots where the couple is kissing and the sun comes through, particularly at the end.

I want to assemble a highlight video from my upcoming wedding. What speed do you use in the slow motion sections of your video? (or does it vary from different shots) Also, what effects do you use? blurs, glows,... ? It is a great video ....

Wow- thank you so much Charley. I'm so close to the work I never know WHAT to think of it till months later honestly. It was my girlfriend's favorite too. I wasn't as impressed with it initially, mainly because it didn't have many "dramatic" shots we try to get. I felt I might have used too many "money shots" in the bulk of the program leaving me a bit dry for clips to use in the vignette. I instead tried to focus on the story telling aspect and getting emotional shots from peoples faces rather than fancy camera moves.

The speed varies because I use the ctrl+drag method in Vegas to alter the speed of the clips. The average really slow motion is 25%, and incidently the furthest ctrl+drag will allow. Some clips are a bit faster and some are even slower.

The only fx filters I use are a combination of "levels", "color corrector", and "glow".

Great work Glen... that was a wonderful hilight video...

the color looks so "rich" in the video.... is that directly from ur camera or u did some color correction in post?

Also great choice of music.... would u mind telling me where can I get royalty free mucis like that on web?

this might be a stupid question... but do u put this hilight in the very beginning or the end of the wedding video? I'm gussing this comes in very end.... of that's the case then what do u show to start the video....same kind of hilight reel with titles?

Again, keep up the good work and keep posting ur materpieces... ur works r inspirational to rookie videographers like myself.

I have a 3-stage process I use which requires the use of "levels", "color corrector", and "glow" to create the look.

This piece is at the end of the video- "highlighting" the entire day in one recap.

Thank you for the kind words.

Kim, how are you. Zooms were in post via the pan/crop tool (Vegas).

Sooo...when you going to make it out to the GPVA?!
