Thanks so much to everyone for the kind words and the feedback It really means a lot to me.
@jdc562 - Thanks - Not sure why the trails seem thicker than others, kind of scratching my head on that one - maybe my location had better clarity than some others?? Hmm...
Thanks Charlie, G-ManWV, & Bjadelberg!
@Jim - I actually write a script and use an iPad teleprompter app for the video. I'd "umm" and "ahh" like crazy otherwise. The post processing part was without the TP though - I'm not coordinated enough to pull that off
@rhee- Thanks - I'll slow down in future vids. I had a lot to get in and I wanted to keep the video as short as I could so it didn't ramble. I agree though - I think I talk a bit too fast in it.
@hk_mtbr, naturesmoments, Morris, and Jason - Thanks!!
@Jon - Thanks - and while I prefer StarStax, it's pretty easy in PS too. Here's how:
1. Load all your files into PS by going to the File Menu, Scripts, Load files into stack. A dialog box will pop up, just browse for all your star trail files and click Open - don't mess with anything else in the dialog.
2. PS will load all your files into a single image, but you'll only see the top layer. You'll need to select all the layers BUT the very bottom layer (click the top layer, hold SHIFT, click the SECOND layer from the bottom.
3. With the layers selected, change the layer blend mode to "Lighten" - instant star trails, but no good way to fill the tiny little gaps. Still works pretty good though.
