    Hey guys,

    I'm trying to make more of the score follow videos for my orchestral recordings:

    Very nice cello soli! I was wondering why you used the tenor clef? Anything that doesn't cross above Bb4 or so, is readable for us in bass.

    Basic advice for watching these, go full screen in HD. Nice music! Nice touch in the third video to highlight the melody.

    Nice compositions! If I may ask, what software did you use to create the videos?

    Thanks!
    I’ve been using Final Cut for making educational videos for six months now and I’m still trying to learn it for these videos.

    I hope HD is sufficient. I’m on an older iMac so I don’t think a video in 4K actually makes a difference when my screenshots of the score is only HD.

    Would you prefer the blue melody boxes from the previous video or the red playhead from this:

    My preference is the blue melody boxes over the red playhead. The melody box shows where the main action is, the red playhead just shows where you are.

    I personally prefer the red playhead. I find it helpful to see exactly which note(s) is/are currently being played.

    Great videos and beautiful music. I prefer the playhead, wouldn't have it "pull back" on page flips but "jump back" instantly instead, though.

    Good composition, good videos. I do not like the red play line. I especially enjoyed "Dina and the Dragon" which included excellent orchestration.

    Very nice composition and use of orchestration, could work very well in a movie!
    Concerning the score, would be more easy if you could hide the non playing instruments and thence have more pages with bigger layout!

    I thought about this but my main point was to show you the actual conductors scores that were used. It seems like there are quite a few that are interested in some behind-the-scenes material.
