These occured most possibly because Autraya suddenly dissappeared. In the beginning, she was the one to gather the lossless files and who was supposed to put the MEP together since I had horrofying slow internet and an oldy, rusty and slow PC which would have given me a serious pain in the ass and possibly days to make a final render/encode and upload (if it would have even been possible to do so). When we re-gathered tracks then, some tracks were lost (for example ZeroLinks, Krisqos and Niwas) and some were only avaiable in beta-quality. I decided to include them anyway as their quality was still ok.

The Thread is actually a great nighttime-lecture. I did read it quite a few times when I was bored and it always cracked me up and fucked my mind up :mrgreen:

PennyRoyalty wrote:And if I'm not mistaken... I thought there were more editors in this than the 4 you mention, right?

Well, it's 6 by now. Barely any of the editors in this mep are still active and only visit the org occassionally. I guess they didn't even notice yet the MEP is finished and will be extremly surprised once they get to see the collaboration request :lol: (which they'll need to accept in order to be added to the listing).
And of course there's Magnus who passed away when he was still doing the last remaining track (Innervision) which was then finished by Hitori and Mystykamv building something around his beta (10:30-10:40). This might actually be one of the last things he edited before leaving this earth.
He's sadly not able to accept the collab request. Though I'm hoping someone has access to his account and does it in his name, or someone with enough mod/admin power will add him to the listing.

All of them are mentioned in the tracklist in the description though, as well as in the credits.


Thanks for the comments everyone, keep them coming |:>

Yessir that was pretty much awesome. And wow at the conception/completion dates, I got into AMVs in early 2007 so I can safely say you all get many blessings for sticking to a project for a dedicatedly long time. Was absolutely worth it.

This MEP is nearly as old as I am on these forums. XD I still remember seeing it getting posted originally and thinking "hmmm... Nah, that's not my kind of music, but I bet they'll do a good job with it!"

Well, several years later.... :uhoh:

I can't say that I enjoyed the overly sexual/violent aspect of the MEP (which is basically the first 3 tracks and the 9/10/11 tracks), but looking past it, the sync/editing was pretty solid and really unique.

I really liked the Gurren Laggen/Excel Saga track. The Another/Fate/Stay combo ws also really nice. As always, Advent Children was also well done.

I also LOLed at Hitler subtitle parts. I remember that controversy. XD

Still, nice job on it.

Dawww. Now the rum's REALLY gone.

:up:

Remastering Magnus' original beta took some time to accomplish. Mimicking his edits as close as possible with some minor/better upgrades and changes. Thankfully, all the footage was from the last two episodes. If anyone wants to see a comparison video, I'm more than willing to compile one! |:>

I'm pretty sure I remember victor, magnus's close friend being able to log into his account but I don't even know who he is on the org. If someone knows or found out you could PM him so he can accept the MEP thing. Maybe a mod like doki can too who knows.

At any rate this MEP was everything I expected it to be though I did scrub through some of it, 30 minutes was definitely overkill.

5 years to make
27 mins to watch
And now its over, damn, holy crap a lot of good stuff was in there. History of how this thing was finally made is going to make a epic tale, I doubt there's another MEP out there thats gone through such hardships... and released. Then again, there was a lot of Rum drinking, made it easier, and now its all gone.

Don't worry though, I hear there's more, a place called SOAD 3. :asd:
