These were the days before Windows
Movie Maker, before Youtube, and before anyone really
messed with making movies of Flightsim. On all of these
files, Hypercam was used for capturing the raw video,
and a program called Video Framer was used for producing
the final movie. Because of this, they aren't as high
visual quality, or as good of audio quality as the rest
of the "youtube" style movies on this site. They are
also of relatively short run time and therefore lacking
in any real themes or overarching plots and therefore
belong in a section all their own.

Look for the ARX-5A at the end.
AeroACTION II - August 2002
aerobatic compilation....because I
didn't have enough fun making
the first one. And I wanted to
show off the new "Coyote"
project in FS2002.
following movies were made with a different
style. I realized a subtle trick to making a
decent FS movie - I've used it on every
movie since and I don't notice many people
doing it. Unfortunately, I was still using
the same old tools to make these movies. But
the "storytelling" cinematic quality is
slightly better on these two. They're still
too short, but no more mashups!
of the Airlines 2003 -
video, are the origins of the
SV-1 spacecraft for Orbiter
