I just made this video (my first one at all) about engineer stacking in jungle with steam turret and the keg.
It's more like a try and a start in video editing. Hope you enjoy
Wow very educational video with one of my favorite heroes involved, gotta try it, thanks

Great job, mate - very nice and educational video.
And awesome editing if it's really your first proper video - you didn't go overboard with effects, and kept it simple. I like it.
Very educational. Well done.
A bit slow imo, but it gets the job done.
What he means is that you need to significantly speed up the transition animations when you're fading to black+text and vice versa. You also don't need the words themselves on the screen for that long. I watched the whole thing, and every time you wrote a message it got me a little annoyed at how long it took to get to the next scenario. Particularly because of the length of time we spent waiting for the fuzzy letters to fade in, which is just time that your viewers are sitting there doing nothing. Try to have every second of your video contain some sort of purpose for the viewer. That's why the mark of new video editors is typically long, flashy transitions that are distracting and pointless. I'm glad you went with a simple fade, but it needs to be about 3x the speed.
In the future, you also shouldn't really show us that you successfully triplestacked each camp with each method each time. The first few times were sufficient for us to trust you. When we see that you stacked the last camp of the 3, we know that you got all of them. Afterwards you were just spending as much time stacking as you were - again think of the viewer - not doing anything.
Helpful video though. Nice to see that you put some thought into it.

Hey there, I'm trying to do the first triple stack you do in the video right now and I'm already struggling stacking with my 'keg'. Does the level of the keg (as the stun time increases) play an affect on the stacking abilities.
Also, does the position of the keg stun play a role, am I meant to be hitting the neutrals away from their original position, towards the outside of the camp?
The rest seems to work fine.
Also due to my bad net I could only watch the video in lowest quality so I couldn't view your timer to see when exactly I should attempt stacking.
I'm writing a guide about all of this, I hope I can manage to put it out soon. Btw:
