Thank you for the update, I think it is time to update my pc and software as I only view the movies on the tv at present.

Look forward to seeing your next Director's cut !

Thanks Alan, I converted to macintosh about 15 months ago and so I
use imovie or final cut pro for most of my video work, however I am
just learning and so everything I have done has been a mistake in
one way or another lol,
for example: when I shot the crazy train video I felt like with the
nightshot turned on it was way over exposing even with my nd
filters and so instead I left night shot off, attached my ir filter
and then maxed out my exposure level manually. this came out way to
dark and although it is a cool effect I think it would have been
better over exposed instead of under.

Basically you process video the same way for ir as you do pictures,
adjust
contrast and brightness ands convert to B&W, Hopefully if weather
and time cooperate I will reshoot crazy train next week so you will
have a better sense of what is possible. my camcorder is a trv-9
dvcam .

oh...and yes, most of my astro shots were shot threough my
telescope by doing macro on the eyepiece.
