I recently bought various products from here and made this video to show the products in a natural way. Natural, meaning a 'come along with me on a flight and see (and hear) these great addons as I do', rather than a "here's some footage of this product and this one, and this one", etc. I like reviews, but I personally prefer videos like this that showcase addons in this way. This video is IFR, but not entirely. As I mention in the beginning of the video, seeing the lights come in and out through the nighttime cloud layers is incredible. I've seen tons of videos of BM and nothing came close to how great it really is (this statement includes my own video). It's sad how bland it can look in video vs in game. Same can be said with Stargazer. It's sweet, but you can't see it's perfection in the video(s). This video is a long tease since you see great footage of Black Marble in small doses throughout the video until the end. At the end, I through together some of the better footage to a piano effort of mine and think the lights and music go well together. To skip the long tease and cut to that spot, just go to 34:15 - end.

 

I spotlight several products in this video.

 

They are:

 

Black Marble NG Base, Vector, 3D Bridges, Traffic, Stargazer, Blue Marble & VOXATC. At first I was just going to make a video for a few buds to show them how cool VOXATC was and then I saw the Black Friday sale and, well,,, you can see the title of my video now starts with Black Marble!

 

PS. I just uploaded it so it only has up to 1920x1080 currently. It should, eventually, have 2048x1152 after full processing.

 

Enjoy!

i am very impressed Dan!

by your video and your personal observations :)
BTW all our videos are unedited, no effects or nothing they are just as you described come along with me for a flight,
it is not an easy task to edit a night video and make it interesting at the same time,

 

in all our videos it is me hand flying my Dodo, to keep viewers attention i speed it up bit here and there but you will notice we dont even use the most basic blend since we dont do any edits to these videos, they are just cut at the end and thats pretty much all the edits they get, everything you see is raw live and it is still extremely difficult to portray the night in a video,

 

well done ❤️

Thanks gents,

   Chris, I preferred the videos from this site from those that I mention. Those that I mentioned are a handful of reviews on youtube and avsim that I've watched in the last month and they're often the type where someone green screens theirself on the bottom corner of the screen and narrates the entire thing. Also with Voxatc. In fact I can only think of one other video of Voxatc that's just a basic flight and allows one to just hear the interaction with ATC and the pilot.

 

Anywho, tremendous products. If I knew they were as great as they are I would have got them many moons ago. I have nearly 200 payware airports and a bazillion addons and have honestly been thinking of getting xplane mainly for its night lighting. BM has taken that idea away and made me more than content with night lighting. It's been ages since I've flown at night in the sim, mainly because the flickering in virtual reality kills the experience. No longer the case and haven't had a day flight in a week.

 

Looking forward to tonight and updating the p3d client to v4.4 and doing the same flight to see how well the moonlighting and other ambient light make the scene look.
