1) Gett rid of the greent ext and just leave the white ones. Looks better and more cohesive. There a bit work on read head's first make. It needs atad more cleaning up. 2) The last bit with the flickering black/white and color looks kind of iffy. I'd go with one or the other or a different scene.
OH and Kenzichu. I'll mark you down for the last bit. Since you just joined, I'll give you an extended deadline. 2 weeks since you just started. If you want to turn beta's in here and there for review along the way feel free. I actually encourage that.

I just can't seem to get the last bit of it right, and I WANT IT TO BE SHEER PERFECTION.
I wants beta NOA! XD *Bounces up and down*
You let someone else see it XD I think........
Kenzichu. get the main part out of the way before the credits. Worry about the credits after you have finished the main part of your track. I don't want the credits to be too simple. We can give you feedback on credits ideas as well. I got a nice one kickin around in my head right now.
Not that I've re-watched it a few times, the few color bleed transition I did [look like white flashes] do get on the nerves a little lol. At least the majority of them. the part where they are all staring in disbelieve to the beat of the song is probably the only part that looks good with the white flashes. Just looks right, ya know?
Do you think I should go ahead and remove a majority of the flashes and replace them with fades or with something else?
Also, the end with the camera shutter snapping open is for the transition into the next track.
That one part you said looks like the same scene after the transition, it's not the same scene. It just happened to be a shot of a closer angle so that it would show her face up close as she got up. it just transitioned so well that it looked like the same scene lol. I'll see what I can do about that.
I'm glad you thought the flow was good. Was kinda going for the Cutesy/Jealousy bit.

Somehow I am happy that my beta part was better than the previous one. I will work on the masking part today XD. Somehow I don't have any idea about 720 p or 480 p thing. Can anyone explain that to me? Huffluv /lagareth I know,but I thought that was for the final part and not necessary for the beta part?
You're right, it's only for the final. Definitely not for the betas xD
Right now your source is 1280x720p. I know that just by copying and pasting it while taking a screencap (unless I had it upscaled, though I'm pretty sure). That means it's 720p. A source that is 480p can be 848x480, 720x480, etc. The numbers are the resolution of the video, which you'll hear is called AR, aspect resolution.The p represents progressive, meaning there is no interlacing. Depending on what we decided, you may have to re-size your video using avisynth to 848x480.
Because you bring that up, I wonder, do you have Sony vegas set up properly? If you usually go to File>Properties, and set it up, then cool. If not, go ahead and read this:
When you open up Vegas, right click the movie and select properties. A little box will come up. On the first tab that is open (Video Event), there will be something called Undersample rate. Then there will be a scroll box with a number in it, and then there will be another number next to that, something like 24 fps, 23.976 fps, 25 fps, or 29.97 fps. fps, as you may already know, stands for frames per second. You need to make sure it's 29.97fps. If it isn't, say so here and we'll help you fix it. If it is, write it down on a piece of paper.
In the next tab, Media, in the middle of the box, it will say Attributes. There it will say your resolution, which I'm guessing is 1280x720. Don't worry about the number that comes after that (like me, for instance, it says 848x480x24. Don't worry about the 24 or whatever number you have.)
Now, once you know your fps and your AR, close that box, select file, then go down to properties. You need to change all of your settings so it says this:
Sorry if you feel like I'm treating you like a noobie. Just want to make sure everything in Sony is set up properly, because it makes a huge difference
TC's beta review coming up
TC's Beta Review: The bleeding crossfade at :08-:09 could be a regular crossfade. It looks better when there are a series of them right afterwards where everyone is looking. The bleeding crossfade at :19 can be a regular one, since it's going into a softer part of the song. If you make it regular and make it slightly longer, then increase the brightness on that clip and let it fade to whatever point, I think it'd look nice. The bleeding crossfades from :21-:28 could maybe be hardcuts? I don't know, you could mess around with those, but there's already so many of those bleeding crossfades that it really isn't needed. I see that you're syncing them to the "uh uh uh's" so you could try different ways to sync other than crossfades as well. Lastly, flashing between the clips in the very beginning looked slightly off. I couldn't figure out which character was being synced to the beat. I think one character needs to be synced to a specific series of beats (specifically, the 3 after the first beat), rather than back and forth, if you know what I mean? xD Just my thoughts. It's not really that bothersome.
Otherwise, I really liked it. I've never seen the series, but it definitely had that cutesy/jealousy feel. Especially the jealousy xP
