I want to start this list now before I forget plus I want to get rid of some paper that's starting to collect.

When we revisit these episodes to assemble the DVD collection we may want to further tweak some of the clips based on input from our viewers or things we noticed ourselves.

Episode Zero:

1) We may want to substitute the exploding planet for something less specific - suggested by Thend and Gadren.

2) Widen the FADE OUT on the Fall of D'ni music before Yeesha speaks. Currently it ends too abruptly.

3) Correct the opening title of the German version to "Film zum Prolog". - recommended by Jana.

Episode One:

Changes 1 - 4 have already been made to the master file.

1) German version: Add zoom to "To be continued" title

2) German version: Add linking effect to explorer linking away at end

3) German version: Change "and" to "und" in end credits

4) English version: Add linking effect to explorer linking away at end

5) From 3:40 to 4:10, adjust camera angle down or move titles so they are not so close to Sharper's chin.

6) At 11:47, fade transition is missing.

7) At 13:56, increase brightness on Nexus. For some reason, it gets darker when shifting to the full Nexus view (bad auto-color-correction, probably).

8.) Overall: Try to improve contrast of titles on bright backgrounds.

9) Change bluish chat to a color closer to KI chat color. Done!

10) Reduce obviousness of Sharper's Relto book. Done!

11) German titles are in French at the start? Man, I feel like an idiot.

12) Check "Scale to Frame Size" and uncheck "Frame Blend" on closeup of Zardoz.



Episode Two:

Coming soon.

I think it would be helpful to note these ideas along with the persons that suggested them.

I'm confused about #2 because the music _does_ fade out at the end before Yeesha speaks. I adjusted that transition to make it fade out more smoothly and slowly than it did originally. But, I can play with it some more later. Different ears hear differently.

New item:

Episode Zero

3) Correct the opening title of the German version to "Film zum Prolog". - recommended by Jana

Added #3. Added info to #1. I'll look up the sound suggestion when I get home tonight.

I noticed the abrupt fade-out on the version I downloaded over the weekend, which I believe is the most current. I think the music could be extended, and allowed to fade away under the beginning of Yeesha's speech.

It's a minor quibble, and noticeable only because of the very high production standards expressed in the rest of the video. Smile

#4:

Going forward I think we should add a link to TGT at the end of the documentaries along with UruLive.


Re: Music cutout - I listened to it myself again and now I understand better. It is a very quick fade. Easy to lengthen in a recut later.

Marten, I don't know if that's really number four for two reasons:

1) We will be adding TGT link to every NEW movie coming out anyway...which is the next ten out of eleven.

2) I don't believe we have to fix Episode Zero because when we compile the DVD collection there will only be one set of credits...I hope. Wink

Well, it's immortalized here anyway. You can't claim you'll forget it again now!

Episode 1 (these changes are already made to the project file):

German version: Add zoom to "To be continued" title
German version: Add linking effect to explorer linking away at end
German version: Change "and" to "und" in end credits
English version: Add linking effect to explorer linking away at end

The French version is actually the best version now!

I still need the wmv version of the french video... I'll go see if I can find it, unless someone has a link handy.

Episode 1 issue #9: Change bluish chat to a color closer to KI chat color. Done!
Episode 1 issue #10: Reduce obviousness of Sharper's Relto book. Done!

All issues on Episodes 0 and 1 have now been corrected in the master project files, except for possibly changing the exploding planet.
