After manual motion tracking, a run of semi-automatic tracking, using the star Regulus as an anchor point, followed by another manual pass to compensate for the difference in travel between the sun and other stars, has smoothed out the video to an acceptable level.
Regulus was just barely visible to the left of the sun during totality.
The multiple cameras are synched using their respective time stamps, time codes, and audio tracks to ensure natural transitions between them.

I know everyone is looking forward to receiving their Eclipse Videos.
Production is progressing, though at a slower pace than anticipated.
Manual motion tracking and key-framing of the 3-hour long partial eclipse video is finally nearing completion.
Remaining editing steps include the final motion tracking of totality, rough cut of the day including interviews and additional camera angles,
Then there are the DVD design and production steps, case design, and assembly.
Finally shipping. Thanks to so much interest, we have a lot of labels to put on a lot of envelopes!
