Here's some rare combat footage I just unearthed :-D ...it's 13megs

http://www.the-airfield.com/movies/sdoe/ww1_SDOE_combat_video8.wmv


The original flim was actually recorded with my webcam off the screen :-D. I'm surprized it worked so well (of course with this video I purposefully made the video look kindof bad and used a lot of 'old film' effects) I tried screen video recorders but the frame rates seemed to be horrible while they were being used.

I made this with the sim "Fighter Squadron: Screaming Demons over Europe" and the excellent World War 1 addon-on stuff. The 'Openplane' engine is still great and if you're a ww1 sim buff, check out http://argonv.tripod.com/FSWWI_Page/readme.htm

I edited it all with the demo for Screenblast video editing software http://www.screenblast.com/main/content/index.jsp?name=software_main&menuPath=%2Fsoftware%2Findex.jsp

Thanks! glad you like it. I just noticed near the end when I ran into the second plane and lost my wing (he plummeted to the ground though), You can here "Ah #####!" within the sound (which was me hehe). Since I was recorded the screen with my webcam, I had my speakers on either side of it and it still caught what I said
