    You should edit things more together.
    Like not every clip needs its own channel.

    There are reasons for that... such as blending audio from the clips themselves without having a fading on the video as well, but it's mainly for organization purposes.

    At the audio level, I've got different settings on every track; volume being the most important one, but also Track Compressor, Dynamics, Reverb, etc.

    So far, it's not scattered at all; everything's put on the fifth video track if possible, and for the sounds, it all depends on what I need to do with it.

    It has a texture glitch here which greatly reduced the filming angles. you may notice that I never filmed the snow on the ground :p
    You are missing blendmodulate texture.
    You can remove it at editing vmt or i can give it to you if i find it.
    That snowblend texture was "dragory/drag_blend_snow_to_stone".

    I don't have any VMT, everything's packed inside the BSP.

    If you've got the texture, I'll gladly take it

    So I was editing/fixing some stuff tonight and, stumbling upon my own footage, thought: "darn it, what the hell happened with the shadows".

    Then I realized I can actually use Source properly if I want to. Oh well. Not that amazing, but still:



    (yes, that is motion blur)

    I really like the editing in this. I do believe the blurring should be reduced a tad just so viewers can make out details much better, but of course I really do love what this is turning out to be.

    I reduced a lot the "diffusion" to try to fill the luminance range.

    Looks good. I agree with you about the low res textures. It sometimes can be an eyesore. But with a little work you can draw attention from that.

    keeps a dark tone but brings out some light colors too.

    The problem when working with color correction is that once you've got something that looks good, on a particular frame, it might look HORRIBLE in movement.

    I find it different.
    I find the lighting in the certain clip makes or breaks how the color correction works.

    Right-click where you can see mine, select Markers/Regions then Insert Marker. Alternatively, just press M

    Also, I'm switching to daily status updates from now on (hopefully)

    (no lens flare because that looked bad)

    just modified the whole master vignetting thing after taking this screenshot, it looks much better and less intrusive now while keeping its purpose

    Also, I have a surprise coming out tomorrow

    The surprise, well, it's seven wallpapers (only 1280*1024 for now). They're upscaled as fuck, but a little blurriness is better for a desktop wallpaper (in my opinion, it helps making the icons stand out).

    I finished Chapter six yesterday, and I was almost done editing it when my computer started showing signs of artefacting, and BSoD.

    My CPU is melting. Literally.

    The problem is that I can't replace it easily, since my motherboard's socket only supports AMD CPUs which aren't being manufactured anymore.

    I'm going to try to get a new mobo and an Intel CPU as fucking fast as I'm able to. In the meanwhile, I had to downclock this one so much that I just can't work on Ghosts anymore.

    Damn, well I hope you can meet your deadline. The project looks great, I would really hate to see it die because of technical issues. I just hope you haven't had any data loss, that would be a real shame.

    I am saddened to inform you that it's getting delayed until December 31st, 2009 or January 19th, 2010 (my birthday!).

    My new hardware performs really well, but due to a strange glitch with the amount of RAM, I am currently restricted to only two gigabytes (which really isn't comfortable for intensive video editing). Furthermore, I have a huge appointment coming in high school (and I decided to do one of its part as a... machinima. Yes, they strongly encourage originality) around January 10th, so...

    Don't worry; the project is still alive, I've still got the files and stuff. Nothing is lost (except if my worries about how Vegas' plugin system works become true)

    Oh, and, if you think you can help me with the hardware: http://www.facepunch.com/showthread.php?t=859111

    Excellent news, people! Due to a completely random occurence, I managed to get all my video editing gear back up and working FLAWLESSLY and even FASTER THAN BEFORE (it's amazing). I've made a second teaser to make up for the ten-days delay
