The Glee MEP [Encoding/Uploading]

|:> |:> |:> What Is Glee? |:> |:> |:>

Glee is a musical comedy-drama television series that airs on Fox in the United States. It focuses on a high school show choir (a modern glee club) called "New Directions", at the fictional William McKinley High School in Lima, Ohio. The music featured on the show is usually remixes of popular songs, many of them being fairly well received to the public.

____________________

:bzz: :bzz: :bzz: Purpose of the MEP :bzz2: :bzz2: :bzz2:

The primary purpose of the MEP is to foster the development of AMV's that use Glee as an audio source. The secondary purpose, of course, is to create an entertaining and enjoyable compilation of short Glee snippets to best develop/show the show's unique audio sound and flow.

___________________________________

:ying: :ying: :ying: MEP Specs :ying: :ying: :ying:

1) All AMV's should be developed with 848x480 and 16:9 AR. [1]
2) All AMv's should be set with 23.976 FPS. [2]
3) Finals should be submitted as Lagarith Lossless AVI OR H.264 MP4.[3]
4) Videos should be no longer than 2:00. [4]
5) Videos should have the highest video quality as possible. [5]

[1][While in the past I've allowed both 640x480 and 4:3 AR to be mixed with the 848x480, I've learned that in the long run it's more distracting than helpful when the AMV is finished. And, in my experience, 848x480 is generally nicer looking than 640x480. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause editors.]
[2][If your FPS is not set at this rate when I am sent the final, then I will NOT change it for you, but I will notify you about it and allow you to send in another final with the correct FPS.]
[3][I prefer MP4, but if you'd prefer to have complete control over your track's quality, then lossless is fine.]
[4][While I am going to be fairly strict about this, if the cut requires the track to be 5-10 seconds over the time limit, then that's fine]
[5][While I don't expect mirkoSP perfection, it still needs to be pretty to look at! If you're unsure, please pm before you begin.]

_______________________________________

:nono: :nono: :nono: Source Restrictions / Other :nono: :nono: :nono:

1) Audio is restricted to ONLY music found on the glee soundtracks.
2) Any anime is fine. Must be acceptable by org standards. [AKA: No excessive gore or nudity or sexual scenes]
3) No duplicate anime. [Editor A is using Naruto, that means Editors B C and D cannot use Naruto]
4) No duplicate audios. [Editor A is using "It's My Life", that means Editors B C and D cannot use "It's My Life"]
5) Collabs on tracks are fine.

_______________

:rofl: :rofl: :rofl: Other Information I Forgot To Add :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

1) Can reserve 1 track at a time, but can complete 2 AMV's for the project
2) There must be at least 4-5 seconds of footage before and after your track. No fading to black before or after either. It makes transitioning a nightmare. :nono:
3) Took out the rule about track reservations. You can claim up to two at first, but you have to finish the first two before moving on to another track.

No amount of ice pops can rectify this injustice to Glee.

Well, sorry? To be honest, I hate mix MEP's. Not just regular hate either, I mean we're going on LOATHING here. Because all it takes is one really bad track that nobody wants to do, and MEP's end up like SOAD2, Gateway or any of the other millions of MEP's that take 5+ years to complete. Also, the audio is limited, and editors can only work with what they've got, and I hate stifling creativity in any way. This way, people that are genuinely interested will work on it, and if they don't make the deadline, then they're out and the AMV world can continue onwards. This is just how I run my MEP's, since it's a lot less stressful on the editors, the coordinators and everyone in general.

ALSO, I ADDED A NEW RULE THAT I MUST HAVE AT LEAST 4 SECONDS OF BEFORE/AFTER FOOTAGE ON EACH TRACK. NO FADING TO BLACK EVAR AT THE BEGINNING OR END.

I had such a hell of a time with the Disney MEP dealing with that, I cannot possibly believe I forgot that. >_<

Just because you hate mix MEPs and there are some that just keep going on, doesn't mean that everyone does and that they all last forever and are full of drama. (I suppose you've never heard of Reflections of Style.) To each their own, while you hate mixes, I hate "compilation" MEPs since all they all are one AMV added after another. If I wanted that, I'd just look up Glee AMVs and put them into a playlist.

4 seconds before and after? Or 2 and 2? 4 seems like a lot...

I'm with this, I love Glee, but I hate "compilation MEP's", cause I just don't see them as true MEPs. They're just a bunch of videos in a row, and MEP to me means collaboration between the people in the project working together to create something cool, and that includes a well done audio mix and work on making the tracks flow together. These type of MEP's just scream lazy to me on the coordinators part (no offense) and they tend to just go on forever in length (whereas a nice audio mix can be just the right length), plus with these, there can easily be an entire 2 minute length video that sucks and puts me off the rest, with a mix at least you only get a small segment that may be bad but it's over fast enough for me to still be interested.

Either way it doesn't matter cause this is your project, just saying the glee fan in me is sad that this is the kinda MEP that's popped up for glee. Hey Ileia, lets go make our own with blackjack and hookers. In fact forget the MEP and blackjack.

When can I claim a second track? After looking through the song list, I got a REALLY good idea (for myself, not a collab).

Well, I'd prefer 4 before and after, but at long as I have something it's fine Angelyco. :D

Oh, and Welcome aboard Mini!

Angelyco, you can go ahead and claim another track I suppose. As long as it's fAAAAAAbulous. :awesome:
