You did well! I’ll just put in my perennial plug for including ambient sound. It seems a shame to show moving pictures without the sounds from the scenes, even with music. Nice music btw.
Thanks for the suggestion, Mark. There are a few problems with including ambient sound from an event like this one. Firstly, the volume varies between extremes to the point where I'd have to spend a lot
of time on the sound. Secondly, it's often so loud as to distort and, while iZotope Rx can go some way towards helping with this, it will still sound bad; plus I'd have to do this part on the PC as iZotope don't (yet) make iPad versions of their software, and so far there's nothing on the iPad to even begin to compete with Rx. And lastly, I wanted to finalise the video before the week's events finish. With so many clips and so little time, I have to make the best decisions that I can.
As for the music, I really like it. It's one of the many free pieces that come with iMovie. And, yet again, coincidences pop up when least expected. I timed all of the clips to fit with 120 bpm, and I don't think this piece is at that tempo. And yet, most of the transitions fit with the beat. And many of the individual changes in the sound seem to go well with the content of the clips. Transferring a raw 'print' of the video into iMovie, adding the music to fit, then reimporting into LF is a fast, neat workflow.
