Hey, folks. Thought this thread was dead, didn't you? You all seem to have received my mass PM at this point. I'd still like responses from some folks, but enough people hit me back that I feel I can make some important decisions regarding this project.
First and foremost, I'm moving the deadline of the project to September 21st.
I had some people request more time, partly due to other project commitments as well as editing for conventions. After this, though, I'm not moving the date anymore. The project has been dragging on since February and I feel like we've lost a lot of momentum since that first frantic interest gauge and filling of the tracks. If for some forsaken reason, someone doesn't finish their track by then, I'm simply offering it to another member of the project, or I'm editing it myself.
is an ideal date, as it's a Friday and I can have plenty of time to render the project and have it ready for download by that next Monday.
A few notes regarding the tracks themselves:
- is everyone remembering to edit five seconds over their track length? I'm not seeing that in all of the betas, and I won't accept your final segment if it's not there.
- if you finish your final beta and it's approved by the other beta testers, by all means, please
send your final lossless version to me. I know that chronic procrastination is an epidemic in many MEPs, but the earlier you can get your tracks to me, the quicker I can release this full project. I'm not saying to rush your editing, but don't feel that because the deadline is later that you should just relax and ignore the project.
- when you render your final video, go ahead and render it with the audio attached. It'll be easier to match up the tracks to the full mix that way.
I'm still waiting for two of my beta testers to respond to my PM, so that's why I haven't gotten back to anyone yet. As soon as I hear from them, you'll hear from me.
I think that's everything for now. Except for... kitties
. Lots of kitties
. It wouldn't be a post without kitties
