I did fade out the end of the music, but probably not enough to make it seem less abrupt, the song was a lot longer than the clip, so I snipped the end and blended it from the middle to the end.I liked the more colorful version. The first one seemed too sterile. The music was very nice, but it seemed you ended the videos before the music was finished. May be better to fade out the music at the end or add some footage to allow the music to end.
If you mean the gradual pulling back while circling, that's actually just a standard circle if you look at the 'alternate' video, what's different in the initial video is that I zoomed in the video editor, and slowly ramped the zoom out as it panned around. Though I can do that pretty easily by hand, it's just one of the benefits of shooting 5.4K with the intention of HD output.I really liked how you did a stretched out orbit of the buildings and ended the maneuver facing them at a nice distance. Very smooth. I need to practice that.
