WARNING! THIS VIDEO IS SPOILER HELL IF YOU HAVEN'T PLAYED ALL OF FINAL FANTASY 7!
The Remastered Edition is HERE! Many thanks to AbsoluteDestiny and ErMaC's guides for helping me fix the capture quality on this monster, and VERY special thanks to Michael Gallart for hosting it on October20.net, and to Ean for hosting it on Deathgatestudios.com until the Donut gets off the ground (I've sent in my pledge already). Total editing time on this video amounts to roughly 150 hours give or take. This includes the two solid weeks of remastering. Lucky me I saved the original Premiere Project file, so all I really had to do was re-rip the cutscenes and fix the timing due to the change in framerate. But anyway, here it is. Enjoy! And drop me an opinion!
Changes in the remastered version:
1) Studio Bumper added
2) High-quality DivX video vs. crappy Cinepak
3) 44100khz, 160 kbs sound
4) Skipping in the beginning fixed from previous version
5) Cross-fades refined to look smoother
6) That little flash of Aeris after the second fade-out removed from the previous version (or am I the only one who caught that?)
7) Black bar distraction fixed as much as possible. It's part of the footage because the ending sequence in FF7 had subtitles. If I stretched it, the proportions would be out of whack. And if I had gone for a letterbox all throughthe video, I would've cut off people's heads. Instead, I clipped the transparent scenes to fit the black bar so it wouldn't be AS disracting. Personally, I find screwed proportions a lot more irritating than a black bar. But I guess that's just me
Note: I've gotten quite a few inquiries about the flashes at 1:45, 1:46, and 1:47. The first one is actual in-game art, specifically the photograph taken at Nibelheim during the 5-Years-Ago incident and later used to mindscrew Cloud something awful. The other two (1:46 and 1:47) are fanart that I drew and colored in Photoshop specifically for this video.
Well, that's about it. Enjoy!
