My first video

The usual advice for anyone presenting a subject in front of an audience is to never apologise for your performance. It risks your viewers losing faith in you as an expert. Don't say sorry for screwing up your guitar solo in front of the pub crowd on open mic night, and never ever show that you're underprepared when doing a show-and-tell for your board of managing directors.

That said, I'm a professional video maker by day, and the quality of what I'm going to show you is seriously not to my usual standard. There's a page of notes that I'd normally address and re-do, but the model got painted, so short of a voiceover to fix the meandering commentary (and that won't happen soon), or a time machine to start again, I thought I'd share this initial work before it gets completely out of date.

So without further ado, here's how to mask some complex shapes for camouflage.

Comments are welcome - and flames are mostly expected. These will get better as I produce them.
