  • Comments: My first submission to a con as well as my first legitimate attempt
    at a music video (I've done 3 others, but didn't spend a great deal
    of time on them or know what I was doing for that matter.) I used
    Adobe Premiere 6 to splice together the footage and music, the divx
    3 low motion codec to compress it, and tmpeg to make it viewable on
    a mortal PC. The filesize is big because I was kinda paranoid about
    the quality not being up to standards when it was shown at AWA7, as
    it would be competing with works that had more resources available and
    talent behind them.

    Update: The mpeg2 version (which is smaller and more user friendly, provided your PC knows how to play Mpeg2) is now available. I honestly didn't think people would like the video so much, but a few thousand downloads (given the filesize of 167 meg on the original) was enough to convince me to come back and re-export the file in a less gigantor-y way.

    Update on the aforementioned Update: Oi, really sorry about that. Apparently the mpeg2 version has an audio chirp in it that no one told me about and apparently I didn't hear it when I test exported it. I'm not taking it down because its still a smaller file than the gigantic one, though I think I'm going to redo the whole video in much higher quality (as in "not made on a crappy computer with crappy quality capabilities) eventually and with much smaller file size. Stay tuned.
