Flight to Zion (a first offering)


Recommended Posts



I've waited for years to have a machine that could record and edit flight videos and the time has finally arrived.


I'm new to this venture but every time I see someone adding to the FSX sticky "How do you keep FSX interesting?" I want to point out some of my flights but couldn't do anything but maybe copy over one of the in-flight "recordings/.fsr" files.


Now I have no more excuses... my effort at this point may be amateurish but, hey, I'm having fun.


This first "Why I fly" offering is a remake of a years-ago FSX flight through the canyons of Zion Nat'l Park near St George, Utah. It is edited a little to clean it up.


available on YouTube:





Sim - Prepar3d 2.5 (1920 x 1080 30fps)

capture - OBS

titles created in Gimp

editing - Blender (final mp4 at 720p)

duration - 15:30

music - none


Aircraft - default Extra 300

scenery - BlueskyScenery: Utah (photoreal)

I created and used 10 custom scenery camera locations during the filming.


Let me be my own first critic: it's too long; so hang tough and enjoy it if you can...

comments and criticisms welcome.
