If there are any Google Earth Pro experts out there, got any ideas to fix this problem.
I’ve made a flyover movie consisting of nearly 20 Placemarks. The flyover looks good but I get pauses at each placemark. In the options menu I set “Wait at Features” to 0 seconds, but GEP still flies to a placemark and pauses for about 3 seconds at each placemark.
How do I remove the placemark pauses so that the flyover is continuous? Here is the video
When you say "edit out the pauses", I assume you mean in Vegas. That solution although works, it strikes me as a kludge for a few reasons.
It's tedious, what if I had 100 placemarks
Any changes I make in GEP will result in re-edit
And most of all, I will loose the smooth experience of flight since the flying algorithm start and stop are fairly complex.
I am grateful for your suggestion, but I don't think it will work well. However, later today I will use your suggestion which I have been avoiding. I was hoping for a more elegant solution.
And I learned something. "Pago-Pago" is pronounced "Pango-Pango."
According to Answers.com:
"...Early Christian missionaries to the islands carried printing presses and movable type so they could produce phonetic bibles in the local language. Because the language spoken in the islands is pronounced with an "n" following every "a," they didn't bring enough n's. It was just implied: every time you see an "a," treat it as "an."
Thanks for the info on Pro going free, but here is my question:
What if any does this change in terms of copyrights/royalties?
I always credit sources in my work, but credits is one thing, royalties another. So does this now mean use of i.e. flyovers and zoom-ins, etc. can be used without paying Google or the company that actually converts NASA and other satellite data into the database of GE and GE Pro?
Before it went free, companies or individuals paid various package levels for Pro (lowest was in the USD $450 or so level) so as to use it in presentations, websites, etc.
I used to use the free NASA Worldwind and Celestia for this kind of planetary overflight and stuff that were using NASA imagery servers directly and so there was no issue except a requirement to credit NASA. But this situation is different for both Google and the company that compiled and designed GE and GE Pro are not non-profits.
Thanks for info. Yes, it is a bit complex, but from what I got from that relates to video/film, it requires inclusion of credits during the entire fly-over or sequence rather ruins the ethos of a non-documentary type video-film. Visually distracting.
