I'll be almost completely free tomorrow, so I'll do my best to hop to it then.


You're not the only person who'll be handing in their footage late. No need to feel embarrassed.
Anyways, as of today, (May 1st) these are the following people I need footage from.

-dj
-aerialesque
-inthesto
-Arkada
-IcyCloud
-bluetrain
-OropherZero
-AMV4000

To those of you who let me know beforehand that you'll be late w/ your submissions, I thank you. To those who didn't, well please either get 10 seconds of footage done soon, upload some footage from your game for me to use instead, or at the very least, send me a pm stating when I can expect something from you.


looks like i better start playing golf..

I've been working my ass off to finish teh henta mep and website work and all that so i guess i can start on this now

I tried uploading already. Failed.
I'll try again tonight.

Also i think i will definately change to "S.T.A.L.K.E.R - Shadow Of Chernobyl" as i pretty much want to be the First to Music-Video-Alize that game. And i just finished it tonight and got the "true" ending - man its 900% better and makes so much sense..!

Also Sayde i'll be sending the full intro movie - you can use whichever scene you want from the video. Its about 3mins long and FULL of some awesome footage. It is however 170mb. But the quality is fairly tasty. Oh and don't worry about the "noise" its part of the game - something to do with radiation - its on everything.

Okay, made a few small changes and one major change.

The major change: for various reasons, angel234 (now known as Dark Seraphim) is no longer on the project. Takefuji and I discussed it afterwards, and we both agreed that "Switchback" doesn't fit as well stylistically with the rest of the songs. Thus, the last track has been changed to "The Heart of Everything" by Within Temptation, because it will end the mix well. To keep things simple, Take agreed to edit the track herself - she's using Kingdom Hearts. A new link has been put up for the new mix, but nothing else was changed, so it shouldn't affect anyone. It's just there if you want to hear the song, basically.

@AMV4000: loli golf, lawlz. XD I've changed your info on the main page, but let me know if capturing doesn't work out or if any other problems crop up, alrighty?

@bluetrain: I've never heard of that game - at least, not that I remember. I'll be interested to see what you do with it. Main page has been altered for you.

@everyone: if you're still lax on your lossless footage for sayde (like me... :sweat: ), please step it up a notch and try to prepare some. I'm not sure if he sent this to everyone or just me, but he said he'd basically be gone through the 14th, so keep that in mind as well.

First beta deadline is on May 20th. I'm not expecting much. Just basically a sign that you're working on your segment. I probably won't really get on anyone's ass about this deadline, but I'll become an unholy terror by the second one, so beware. (Not sure when the second deadline will be. Depends how far everyone is by the 20th. I'll most likely leave it up to you guys to determine a workable timeline - within reason, of course.)

Hope everyone is enjoying themselves. ACen convention timeline starts on Thursday night for me, so I'll be unreachable from then to probably Monday morning. Hope to meet a lot of editors while I'm there, and if any of you are going, maybe I'll get lucky and bump into one of ya. =^.^=

See ya, folks.

Hi there, folks. Just posting to remind everyone that the deadline for the first beta is in less than a week (May 20th). I'd like to re-remind everyone what I'm expecting from these betas:

- if you have a video, great. I'd love to see whatever you have edited thus far.

- always PM your link to me and I will PM it to the other three beta testers. If you want to post the link in this thread as well, that's just fine. This project can only get better by having everyone know what the general quality of editing is.

- if you don't have a video ready yet, that's okay for this first deadline. Just make sure to let me know how you're doing. I know that some editors in this MEP will be recovering from ACen yet, so I'll go easy on everyone because of that. All I want to know is that you're alive and you haven't forgotten the project. If I don't get some kind of confirmation a day or two after the deadline, I'll PM you for one.

Lastly - and I can't really enforce this one - if you see a track that you think is better than yours, don't feel discouraged. Instead, let it motivate you to work even harder and make something that you feel is just as good as the videos around you. I want everyone to feel like they did their best when this is released. I don't want anyone thinking that their track is out of place or worse than others around them.

I haven't said this in a while, so it bears mentioning. If ever you believe I have not clarified something well enough, or that I'm not communicating with you well, let me know. If I can, I'm always ready to help.

I'm not sure if i'll have a beta yet, i'm still messing around with the OGMs S.T.AL.K.E.R Comes with to see if i can fix them up further, but VDUB doesn't seem to like 'em much and i also need to free up so some HDD space, coz i'm packed to the gunwales right now!

@ dj_ultima_the_great:
I don't think that I will have a beta till May 20, but I have edited about 35 sec. which are not the final version I think. If you want to see that so far, I can send It to you.

Hi,

just letting you know that I won't have time to even think about this MEP nor do the BETA until my exams are over - mid June but then I have a 1 month break which is more than enough to finish the entire track =O

Alrighty, folks. Thanks for letting me know what's up. masterGT, I'd be happy to see what you have. ^_^

One day left before the deadline, folks. Oh, and even if you already sent me a beta, like, months ago, can you just post your confirmation that you did one more time? It'll help me keep track of things. Thanks.

Alrighty, beta stuffs.

So a while ago I did post a link in the thread with a beta for my Dirge of Cerberus track, but that's old and ugly so I'll have a new one up when I get home from work tonight.

My Kingdom Hearts track, however, I won't have a beta up by the deadline, as I'm still in the process of ripping my clips. I will be working on it this weekend, if I can get around to collecting the last of my clips, but there is very little chance of a proper beta being up for tomorrow.

Just know that I'm still working on it, really I am ^^;

Ill see what I can have up in the next few days and send you a link. It won't be the full track but I see how much I can get done.

Well, today's the deadline - but like I said, don't freak out too much if you don't have anything ready for me. Confirmation that you're still alive is enough for me right now. So, it looks like I've heard from...

- myself (duh)
- Scott Green
- Takefuji
- sayde
- inthesto
- Arkada
- IcyCloud
- bluetrain
- OropherZero
- AMV_4000
- masterGT

Which means... it looks like aerialesque is the only one I need to pester for confirmation. Everyone else - at some point - has told me that they're alive, be it here, through a PM, or IRC.

As for me, this isn't going to be a very impressive beta. Firstly, it's short. That's all I got done before ACen, finals week, and moving back home hit me. Also, though, I've mentioned in other places that I'm editing this oddly. I'm adding in all of the effects after I've finished editing the segment in simple cuts. So, there aren't even fades in this beta. Hope it's okay, though.

Took me four tries to get an XviD that didn't look like a polygon had puked pixels into my video player... : /

http://www.sendspace.com/file/tfq8bz

That's all, I suppose. I'll bug aerialesque today, and as for everyone else - I'd like suggestions for the next beta deadline. Summer schedules tend to vary greatly for everyone, so I want something that's comfortable for all of you folks. I only ask that it's either before September or after September. I start school again early that month, so I don't want to deal with a MEP then.

I expect completed (or nearly completed) segments by the second deadline, so take that into consideration when figuring out the schedule.
