Yeah, I agree. I'll make that change that in the next beta

Let me know! I'm open to ideas, and feel like I should at least take out the credit text one way or another.
I think that your WiR vid is a great opening track for the MEP and I love the style of the text. Do you think that you could change the two text sequences to something like "The Disney MEP Staff presents" "The Disney MEP IV: The Magic Continues". And then right after that, I'll can have your track info fade in at the bottom of the screen.

Actually, I know that this MEP has been in development hell, but I wouldn't mind putting off the release if it meant getting more tracks in. It seems pretty short, and while the tracks are great most of them are really low key. I think a couple more fun/action-ish tracks would really balance things out.
Yeah, I just wanted to get started on the post work in order to avoid having a massive amount of work to do once we get all the tracks. And I felt that releasing a beta would get everyone motivated to finish their tracks and provide feedback on the ones already submitted. I actually haven't even started editing the rest of Code's Friend Like Me track. So the premiere of this MEP is at least a few more weeks away.

Edit: ALSO I approve of Moezy's track as a closer
yeah, that decision was a no brainer

I agree that the fast/slow tracks need a bit better pacing, (especially in the beginning). Half way through the fast-slow-fast pattern was better, though. The fading in and out does make the transition between segments a little jarring, (although the length of time of fade in/out was good), so I'd also suggest just overlaying them together like in the previous MEPS. Credits song was good; it worked well especially with that last track. XD
I'd be willing to make one more upbeat video at this point that I can get to you by the weekend, if need be. I wasn't sure if I'd be able to do another track, but seeing as how a lot of the videos are more down-tempo, (including my own), we probably could do for another fast track...
yeah, I'm definitely gonna adjust the order a bit in order to improve the pace of the beginning. And I'm gonna contact people individually about if I need them to adjust the beginning and ends of their tracks to make overlaying them easier. I also adjusted the cuts that I made to the credits song in order to make it smoother (although, I not even sure if anyone even noticed the cuts in the first place) Oh and, if you want to make another track, that would be awesome!
