Sorry for taking so long with this x__X I should have the Group C & D videos up for download tomorrow.

And holy crap, Group A was CLOSE. The scores were 2.2 and 2.6 with the lower score moving on.
All the scores are added together after the judges rank the videos from 1 - X with 1 being best. Then they're divided by the number of judges and the videos with the lowest scores move on to the next round.

Good job guys and girls. :up:

So..........people with bad video encode and watermarks all over there footage beat properly prepared footage?

I watched his vid but had a hard time because of watermarks.

This just makes me feel really inferior now.

Gratz regardless.

Had to double post because of no edit button. These results aren't fair by a long shot and make me think favoritism was shown. Mine clearly had more effort and footage was prepared properly. Compared to the video that "SUPPOSEDLY" beat me.

Guess hard work don't mean crap anymore. Seriously.

I can't say this enough. This is utter tripe. I feel as if this was an attempt let someone who hasn't had much editing experience get further in the competition.

THIS IS BULLSHIT. And I know I'm not the only one who think so.

Superior editing obviously doesn't mean squat anymore. I have a right to be pissed.

If it makes you feel any better, I liked your video the best. I thought it was really well done and thought it turned out nicely. ^^
I was sad to see that you didn't make it and really don't see why.

I'm nowhere near qualified to give any real comments or advice and I'm certainly no judge, but I still think your's had a lot of effort put into it clearly, and that made it stand out.
All and all I really did enjoy your video.

v_v I really don't want to be a part of this drama. . . but I have to ask. . .

Were you investing your hard work because you were trying to win or because you were having fun??

Personally, I would have to agree that Twilight should've won IMO because it was edited better but I'm not a judge so I don't have room to complain. However, with that said, the competition is only meant to be fun so there's possibly a better way to handle this rather than raging out. :P

I went all out on that video BECAUSE I was having fun AND wanted to win. I normally don't rage. This just upsets me to no end. This is not fair by a long shot.

TC: I'm not sure how this would make you feel, but there was no favoritism from my side.
I personally had placed you first in Round 1, if that's anything to go by, but now I placed you third. I completely put aside the nickname of the editor and just consider the video.

And I personally didn't like your video too much. The lip syncing masks just did not fit in your video, thus slowed it down if not entirely killed the flow; lip sync is by far the trickiest thing to get right. The zooms also needed work, particularly the ones that had the really heavy wiggling, they just were too rough so felt jarring where they were placed. The scanline effect also just didn't look very good in there (I mean the 01:10 scene). But it was really the lip sync that really put the video down for me. It just was not meant to be. I can understand it took effort, especially with the mask, and I can appreciate that, but in the end the final result is what matters, and unfortunately it just didn't work out for me.

PS: Footage wasn't properly prepped either, to be honest. Combing was at times quite visible in playback, and there was some banding too. Here's two screenshots:

I handle crit just fine. You would rage too if you lost to THAT.

What part of his video had any effort? Practically no cleaning, watermarks everywhere. Blocking. Jesus christ.

Oh well. Not like I can do anything about it now. Just won't enter anymore org supported contests if this is the kinda result I can expect from judges.

As stated, hard work don't mean shit anymore apparently. So why bother even trying to work hard on yoru video if someone who puts little to no effort can just waltz in and own all over you?

Word of advice. Just throw somethign together. You'll win.

Gratz to the winners. I'm out.
