I'm known for not hounding people for tracks. If you miss the final, I'm not gonna beg for it. I've got enough to worry about with learning all of the IRS Code this next year.
1) I'm not going to clean your footage for you. What you turn in is what you will get. If it's too junky/blocky/interlaced, then I may or may not drop your final.
2) Beta critiques are mostly optional to follow, although you will be strongly encouraged to change certain things if 3/5 of the beta testers agree on it
3) Video footage should be edited in 16:9 AR. 848x480 is preferred
4) FPS should be set to 23.976.
5) Videos need to have AT LEAST 3 seconds of footage before and after their tracks for purposes of transitioning.
__________________________________________________________________Track Specific Rules
1) Once an anime is claimed, it CANNOT be claimed by another member. Multi-sourced tracks do not apply to this rule.
2) Once a song is claimed, it CANNOT be claimed by another member.
3) Tracks may be no shorter than 30 seconds, but no longer than 1 minute and 30 seconds. This doesn't include the 3 seconds before and after.
4) Songs must be related to Christmas or the Holidays. Anime must directly or indirectly be related to the Christmas music.
5) Try to not fade music in or out unless absolutely necessary.
6) No sex or nudity.
Betas: Betas should be sent in the same quality that you would upload to a-m-v.org. This is to show me that your track is in acceptable visual quality. AVI or MP4, whatever floats your boat. I need to see at least ONE beta before I get your final. Betas need to be sent by at least one of the two deadlines listed above. Missing the second deadline will remove your anime and song requests until I do get a beta.
Finals: Please send finals in one of the following formats
1) High Quality MP4*
2) Lagarith Lossless AVI**
3) Huffy Lossless AVI***
4) High Quality AVI [Xvid or otherwise]****
****Ok, but not desired
