    Rather than softening the edges, why not try creating a thin black border around the edge of the clip? It also seems a bit odd running the clip along the top border. I would definately move this inside the safe area.

    In addition to the above, you might consider giving your PIP rounded edges.

    Or even better, have the main shot in a rectangle box with a coloured trim, then have the PIP boxes moving around. These would be a square as opposed to a rectangle, but with the same coloured trim.

    Some nice footage there, good shots and angles. You also captured the sound well.

    My own personal view is that I would probably remove the PiP part at the beginning and have those as faint video showing through the main video and probably have a few of them doing that almost simultaneously (starting a few frames apart from each other).


    The effect is demonstrated well here in this -->video clip<-- (between sec 29 and 33)

    phpBB (the backend of the forums) uses a forum wide colour for hyperlinks. As this includes the above navigation which I want to be black, all hyperlinks come out as black. Without hardcoding ammendments, this will stay the same If you want to post in line links, I would suggest you bold and/or underline the word. Alternaitively, post an online link in the form www.mylink.com for "www.mylink/this is a long link that will make the page stretch.html".

    It's a great video, but I don't know what it's about. (well cars obviously but.. just shut up :-P)

    Is it just you and a few friends messing around? Is it for a club or organisation? It it some sort of promo video?
