Some of this footage has been in my previous videos. Some is new.

With the power of AviSynth and QTGMC I was able to combine my 1080-25i and 1080-30i footage smoothly into a single production at 720-30p.

Looks best at 720p.

Love the up and over coral shot at 0.25(ish). I've never been able to pull that shot off satisfactorily, so I know from experience how hard it is to do! :lol:

Cheers, Simon

Piece of cake Simon. Strap a Kessler crane onto a couple of nearby corals and job's a good 'un.

Really good work Nick. A great mix of different shots that all fit nicely together coupled with understated audio. Perfect for a demo real. The green of that jawfish was beautiful and the up and over shots smooth as silk.

Thanks for the kind words.

There's a jawfish in my video? :lol: I don't think I've ever seen one of those!
