You simply can't use a tripod in these circumstances. Tripods are very limited in their acceptance in many places and taking it on a long trip, especially when much of the trip is by scenic bus, makes it untennable. Shortening this is very tough in that we went to many beautiful areas and the purpose of the video is to recall those places. This is not a video of trees, gardens, butterflies or zoo animals. Perhaps more personal videos just shouldn't be posted and I can see that point.
Regarding the music quality, it's subjective, but yes, I would have preferred using something different. I use music that can be tailored to a given length.
Regarding dissolves, I totally disagree. They are still used frequently in many productions. Cuts & dissolves are still the most professionally used transitions.
I've actually shown this to 4 different couples on my 77" OLED. They were all mesmerized and thought the quality was jaw-dropping. As I said, if you don't watch this on a large screen UHD TV, you're missing a good portion of the quality.
