So this is someone's attempt at creating an 'in car video'... would love to know what you guys think about:
- video cam angle
- sound level
- which sounds better, before 3:49 or after? former was when the driver window was down
- video quality
- sound quality
- should there be background music?

No law was broken during this drive  :thumbsup:

- video cam angle

Decent, would probably tighten it a bit so as not to have so much roof/dash visible.  But probably best to leave the camera as it is and do that via cropping on the computer - when you use the zoom on a video camera, you lose a lot of the feeling of speed, best to get a wide-angle lens to really pronounce the speed.

- sound level
- which sounds better, before 3:49 or after? former was when the driver window was down

Meh - I don't know how you's drive such amazing cars which are muffled so much!  I was tearing around in my stupid little car today - and I loved it because the noise it makes when I'm going flatout, even though it's slow.  I just wish one of you M5 guys would put that insane exhaust on that I posted the video of a while back - makes it sound 3/4 as good as a Gallardo.

- video quality

It's youtube - need to pay for decent hosting to get much better.  Oh, and your aspect ratio is a bit off - looks kinda like a spaghetti western. :p

- sound quality
- should there be background music?

Again - the noisetrack was pretty, er, insignificant. 

Remember Rendezvous?  Well eventually everyone's finally accepted that it was actually just a boat/Mercedes going at just a bit more than normal speeds through Paris - but for the last 30 years everyone had been convinced that this film was really a Ferrari going flat out.  Watch this clip with and without sound - see the difference.

The only reason I'd use music in a vid is because the sound/vision wasn't enough by itself - for eg the following vid was pretty dull at normal speeds even though normal speed in this instance was 220-260kph, so I sped it up and added the music and it turned out not too bad.

LOL - I just watched your BMW vid again - except I had the sound on your vid muted with the sound on Rendezvous playing instead. :cool: :D :D

Thanks Ash. Can you recommend me a good video editing software?

The exhaust mod may be on the books for me. Would like to get it done before CA but not before Tassie...I'm still reeling from what's been happening to the stock market for the moment... :faint: Further to that, I'm kinda worried that it'll really intrude on my neighbours, who have been really really friendly with me. The M5 is loud on a cold morning start as it is  :rolleyes:

The simplest and best for basic editing is VirtualDub.  For the average hobby guy something like Windows Movie Maker is good enough for the non-linear stuff like transitions and titles etc.  After that it's a major leap up the difficulty curve to the semi-pro stuff like Adobe Premiere - like comparing checkers to chess.
