Virtual Hiking Technical Stuff

Still playing with basic variables such as clip speeds and transitions versus just letting the clips play. After some of the slower (IE real time) clips like Mt Major and Carrigain I know they generally need to be sped up. I'll still post them in actual time or close to it once the clip gets above treeline, the question is how much speed up does it need?

With The Bonds I put the Lincoln rail trail segment at 5x and (I think) dropped it down to 3x once on a regular trail before putting it in real when the views got all rewardy.

Another advantage to the higher speeds is that they cover up the occasional editing glitch (eg shots not quite matching each other after a cut).

The other side of the transitions thing though is that overlapping two high speed clips can look even more obvious.
