"Just fabulous!"

Conrad, your wetlands video is just fabulous, on all levels!

Good drone footage, smooth pans and outstanding audio too! You must have used a good shotgun mic to pickup the variety of bird calls. Your music sound track was on the mark too. A selection from your music library, or from a music licensing site such as Epidemic Music?

I see what you mean by how using After Effects helped stabilize the King Fisher picking away at his meal - the trees behind him were really moving in the wind!

One last question - were you using a dedicated Hi-Def video cam, or a DSLR/Mirrorless to record the birds and scenery? It's very sharp and clear!

Let me master FCP, then I will look at After FX.

Thank you again for the tips and info.

EDIT - I read your response to a query on YouTube about how you record your sound with a parabolic mic. Superb!
I use a Sennheiser MKE600 electric condenser super cardioid with a dead cat windscreen mounted on my D850 camera's flash mount - I've found it to be very effective and sensitive too.

Cheers,
