Pérouges - French medieval hilltop town

Last weekend we visited Pérouges. Embedded below is a short film of our visit. The short film Pérouges - French medieval hilltop town is also available on my YouTube channel.

Faster Easier Editing

I am trying to get faster at putting together these short films. Final Cut Pro is a complex beast of an editing application.

This is the first video to use a compressor within Final Cut Pro for parts of the audio; previously I did this in Audacity. While a small step towards better sound, it is nice to be able to do as much as possible within one application.

I also learnt that L & J cuts do not require detaching audio first. By expanding the audio tracks of a video, it becomes possible to trim or expand the visual and audio elements independently of each other.
