Macross Fan Editing


Recommended Posts

Hello Macrossworlders:

I saw Hikuro posting here with an update on his anime fan dubbing

group's rendition of Macross DYRL english dub.

So, I thought I would post here too with my Macross video projects.

I'm also including in this list any other Macross fan editors' projects.

Feb. 10/2008:

Test version of DYRL extended is deleted from iMacross4

[final version is being encoded Feb.20]

See weblinks in my signature.


Some obvious fixes have been done for dyrl ext v2, so if you see or hear something other than these fixes post a reply or send me a pm. Any other helpful suggestions would be appreciated. Words like "travesty" or "Uwe Boll of anime" don't help me much; funny though they may be.

Anyways, the fixes already done for dyrl extended test version 2 are:

1. audio / video sound all synchronized. Harder than it sounds. FIXED

2. removed time cue title captions. When I was watching the movie for the fourth time, I then noticed that the movie has a timeline of 7 months from the beginning of seeing the zentraedi to then ending battle. So, the dyrl ext v1 has time captions. The captions look so-so because there is already enough to read.

I have already taken them out for dyrl ext v2. FIXED

3. there's a zentraedi fleet zoom out clip from psx dyrl that doesn't quite work, but looks good. So, I'm not sure to keep it in. Deleted. FIXED.

4. I wonder if I could put a zentraedi scout ship zooming over my zentraedi fleet in orbit picture. Any suggestions for panning and zooming? I used ProShow Gold. I think I could have the scout ship composited in with the Womble video editor software. Done and FIXED

5. For the next couple of days, I am working/playing on a prologue for the dyrl ext v2, which takes the prologue from SDFtv ep1 and opening clips from Macros0 ep1, which pretty much explains the basic premise of the whole movie. I was thinking that with this kind of prologue DRYL would make sense from the get go, instead of starting the movie in a middle of a conversation among aliens or even the psx dyrl opening scene. DONE

6. ****aspect ratio problem on dyrl ext v1*** : womble video editor shows that the dyrl looks like it's fine as widescreen when I uncheck "maintain aspect ratio" in the preview video panel. So I unchecked "maintain aspect ratio" and encode the movie into an mpeg, but then I get a dyrl movie that has a black border on both top and sides?! I'm going to try cropping or panning the gray phantom dyrl v2 video by itself to get movie into the right widescreen aspect ratio and then subtitle again. That's for tomorrow though.

(If even one video clip has "maintain aspect ratio" checked for video options, the movie's aspect ratio is off.) FIXED



I'll just finish up the dyrl ext prologue in a couple of days and test fitted with the dyrl ext movie for version 2. I would like to do a dyrl extended movie trailer and maybe a poster. By next weeked, I'll work on the "SuperSpace Fortress Macross: Clash of the Bionoids - Special Edition". So far, it's pretty easy to tell when I swap the vhs english audio with the japanese background soundtrack. Cool edit pro was suggested as a good audio editor. I think I'll take a look at some audio editing software to test out how better to upgrade the vhs english dyrl audio.

I was thinking this macrossworld thread will be for Macross Fan Video Editing projects. So, if anybody's in to that sort of thing then they could post here: comments, suggestions or their own fan editing works in progress.

I'm going to post a new thread for the Macross DYRL Extended DVD Cover Art contest.


Feb 17 Update:

I have been working on the dyrl extended dvd cover for the last two days. I hope some other people will be able to find the time to put together a nice dvd cover too for the contest.

Today, I snipped out a little bit of video from the dyrl extended and I am now realigning all the audio and video after the cut point. I still have to get the prologue subtitled. I spent 2 hours on subtitling and it was like the audio or video was different every time I went to check the timing. I'll finish it up tomorrow and then edit the prologue into the main movie and encode. The encoding will take a day or so. Then to upload the 700mb compressed movie to iMacross4 will take 2-3 days. At that point, I'll be working on finishing the dryl ext dvd and testing to see that the dvd works properly. By next weekend, I'll be plugging away at the dyrl english dub.

That was more work than I thought: a little more than 5 months. I sure learned a lot.


Feb. 19/2008

1/3 of the way subtitling dyrl extended prologue.

I found out that tmpeg can encode womble video edit files into mpeg files better than womble can, so I'm testing a video encode right now. That should be finished up tomorrow. Tmpeg video and womble audio are considered the best mix by fanedit.org members for dvd production.

According to www.fanedit.org regulations, I have to have a title specifically made up for each fanedit movie so as not to get anybody confused with an official movie release. I'm about halfway done doing an opening fanedit title sequence with proshow gold software.

So, I'm open to suggestions.

I thought the SDF Macross logo with "More Macross Loving" was good, but then I put in "an extended dyrl fanedit" and the title now sounds so wrong.

"I guess I forgot!"

"That reminds me of something?"

"I don't remember this!?"

"What the...?"

"Too much of a good thing?"

"What was I thinking?!"

"I don't remember that at all!"

"Who's responsible for this mess?"

"Where's the stop button?"

"Oh, the humanity!"


******I uploaded Macross DVD cover collection and dvd picture elements to iMacross4 rapidshare account for the DYRL Extended DVD cover art contest.

Good luck!

7. I would like to include "Super Dimension Fortress More Macross Loving" in the main movie title, if possible. I just thought of one possible way with FrameShot software taking one frame from before and after the main movie title. Frameshot is better at getting snapshots than Videolan or Womble video editor. Proshow gold slideshow software is good for getting some motion from one still frame to another and turning the animated frames into an mpeg. Then I could take the fanedit title or the dvd cover title and matte it out in white with Paint.net. I was able to composite a zentraed scout ship, so using the slideshow mpeg of the sdf-1 and the cover title composited over the mpeg, I think that could work.

I could use Nero Re encode to do a quick cut from the beginning fanedit titles, if I can get the main movie title working the way I would like. Almost there! FIXED AND DONE!

1. dryl ext now has all edits finished and audio / video synchronized

2. new fanedit title sequence, so as not to confuse this movie version with an official extended cut and an extra prologue from Sdf tv ep1 FIXED

3. I attempted to cover over the original dyrl title, but the snapshot either looked blurry or I could not get the pan to adjust right on with womble video editor. So, I didn't change the original title sequence. NEW MOVIE TITLE

4. I took out a psx dyrl zentraedi fleet zoom out shot that just didn't look right.

5. I moved the macross armd attack in a spot in the movie that fits.

6. TMPEG made a 6 GB one frame shot of dyrl, so I'm just using womble for encoding despite fanedit.org's suggestions.

7. Title is now : Super Dimension Fortress More Macross Loving: DRYL Extended FanEdit


8. Right now, the mpeg encoding takes a day and then I will re encode the mpeg into a 700 mb avi to upload to iMacross4 by Friday.

9. Then the dvd preparation will take one day, so the dyrl extended dvd will be ready by Sunday!

Uploading a dvd to iMacross4 will take about a week or more.

10. dyrl extended womble preview deleted from iMacross4

Then I can work in earnest on Super Space Fortress Macross: Clash of the Bionoids Special Edition!


Also, while looking for sdf-1 pictures, I found a cool Macross Fan Film edit. Enjoy!

DRYL Extended V3 UPDATE:

I'm working on v4. I did get dyrl extended encoded into mpeg and turned into an avi and then I watched the movie and saw it could use a few more fixes. Almost there.

Fixes that I would like to do for this week.

1. Improve Macross World .gif logo and Fan Edit.org logo and re do the opening credits.


2. Change end credit to SDF More Macross Loving logo

(skipped logo, just retyped credits)

3. Replace music video like footage from Angel's paints pt. 1


That was more work than I thought. I not only had to balance sound effects and music, but the sdf tv video had jumpy frames. So, I took a snapshot of a non-jumpy frame every 20 frames and pasted it over to make a smooth transition. I was thinking of doing 3 movies with sdf tv footage.

4. Replace catwalk scenes from Angel's paints pt. 1 and overlay subtitles


5. Lengthen fade out for zentraedi earth orbit clip


6. dyrl ext. trailer that I will see if I can put on youtube. I never did that before.


7. dyrl extended Mini Poster


Then I can work on the dvd menus for dyrl extended: 90% done. I'm not sure how to do chapters with dvdlabpro just yet.

See above post for Macross Teaser poster.

I'm going to finish working on updating the angel's paints video and final fixes for editing dyrl exended.


I'll need 2 days to encode the movie to 700 mb avi onto iMacross4.

MAR. 4/08

Then the dvd iso upload will take a week to upload to iMacross4 and I'll look at mininova.org for getting a bittorrent started.

SDF MML dvd menu complete

,but I found one audio glitch in the flashback angel's paints part 1 just after the first sdf tv clip insert. It was a small audio overlap that wasn't needed. That's fixed. Then I redid the zentraedi fleet earth orbit scene one more time for the dvd, so that the zentraedi scout zooms out and then pans left a bit rather than just hovering for a second.

Tmpeg should be finished converting the dyrl extended mpeg into an .mpv video file by the time I wake up tomorrow. Then I can post a bittorrent on mininova.org So tired.

16 minutes into Clash of the Bionoids, probably finishing the audio editing by this weekend. I would also like to fix up a DVD menu, DVD cover art and a movie trailer, so that could take me a week or so because I work nights starting Friday for a week.

SDF MML 700 mb avi as a bittorrent is now available on MiniNova.org!

Click here!

I'm just finishing up the dual layer SDF MML dvd now, so I can post the bittorrent by tonight.

The dual layer SDF MML will take a while to download via bittorrent from me: at least 2 weeks.


Wow! 22 people downloaded my SDF MML bittorrent already.

For some reason, I'm getting a bittorrent problem.

I submitted the bittorrent to MiniNova.org through one of pirate bay's open bittorrent trackers.

I have 2 guys in swarm and MiniNova does not register me as a seeder?

I'm not sure what I did wrong. The pirate bay tracker is connected and utorrent gives me a green light for connections, but no uploading? No firewall blocking any internet connections.

I'll give it an hour and then I might have to re do the bittorrent.


It's working!!



SDF MML dual layer dvd with extras is almost ready. I ran into a dvdlabpro 2 glitch. My extended movie trailer finishes playing and then videolan media player just crashes.

I initially did the extended movie trailer with Womble video editor into an mpeg. Then I used Tmpeg software to get a nicer quality video and use womble 5.1 audio to put into the dvd menu.

combinations I have tried:

W= womble video editor

T = Tmpeg software

A = audio

V = video

C = convertXtodvd software






Then I stopped last night and took a nap before going to work.

I'll just burn the dual layer sdf mml dvd with DVD Shrink and Imageburn to test out this problem with the extended movie trailer tomorrow.

So far I have one positive review from the SDF MML 700 mb avi posted under the Macross Fan Edits folder on iMacross4.

SDF MML DVD compiling update:

I burned and tested a dvd to play on a my dvd players and found out a couple of things.

1. extended trailer plays just fine on a dvd player. no more glitch.

2. dvd player plays the movie in wide screen, but fills up the whole screen as in no black bars, but that's okay since I have a wide screen tv

3. original dyrl trailer and original dyrl movie ending do not have english credits

dvdlabpro dvd compiler imports the dvd vob video/audio file just fine. I get dyrl trailer and movie ending english credits playing on videolan player correctly, but no english credits on my dvd players! I have a sony upconversion dvd player and a yamaha dix dvd player.

I then noticed that when I slightly changed the zentraedi earth orbit scene for the dvd, I forgot to decrease the brightness and saturation of the zentraedi scout. I'm re doing the dvd video now.

I am also working on getting the original dyrl trailer english subtitles for the dvd. The original dyrl ending subtitles are the same as angel's paints part 2.

I need at least one more day to get the subtitles for the trailer done and to mux the dvd video and re compile the dvd.

Almost there.

I was going to make a quick perfect edition dyrl with

Then I can put the sdf mml into an iso with extra dyrl files onto MiniNova.org by Friday.

It will take a couple of weeks to upload the sdf MML iso to iMacross4 because the iso dvd is 8 gb!


Minor Fixes, Major time consumer:

I am now set back to square zero for COTB special edition.

I have to re do all of my video and audio edits of SDF Clash of the Bionoids. Womble video editor crashed in the middle of saving the project file and corrupted the project file! $@$#%$! I thought Clash of the boinoids would be a much more relaxed and easier fan edit, but Womble has some sort of defect with more than 10 sound edits that break the software. So, I need to save every 5 sound edits and if it looks like Womble is slowing down, just close Womble and redo the last 5 edit points.

I was going over the dyrl english song subtitles and found "untill", which is supposed to be spelled unti(l). So, the dryl extended subtitles also include this spelling mistake.

To fix one spelling error on the sdf mml dvd:

I need to turn G_P DRYL into a dvd with dvd flick software, then use autogk to burn in the new subtitles with the correct spelling, then open up womble to copy and paste a few frames and finally get tmpeg to make the .mpv video file, which can be plugged into the dvd menu and compiled with dvdlabpro. Then I turn the sdf mml dvd into an iso with dvdshrink.

The original dyrl trailer and ending now have fixed subtitles and I know that dvdlabpro makes a fine dvd.

I am the only guy seeding right now. MTS does not have as restrictive a policy for uploading as Shaw Cable, but I have to keep the uploading at a certain rate or MTS can and will cut off my internet connection as punishment for sharing too much. MTS doesn't mind the downloading though.

SDF: MML is also available on iMacross4 under the Macross Fan Edits folder.

"Untill" spelling subtitle fix:

Do not use the latest version of dvd flick software to convert .mkv video files. The audio and video do not match. The audio and subtitles match, which then tells autogk to burn in the subtitles at the wrong spot, so avoid dvd flick. ConvertXtoDVD software works way better.

I'll think the dvd will be ready by Saturday, but problems of all sorts keep popping up unexpectedly.

The video on the dvd will look sharper because Tmpeg software does a better job of rendering video for a dvd than Womble video editor does. The 700 mb avi is the womble mpeg rather than the Tmpeg video. The psx dryl video game scenes look a little fuzzy at edges straight from the Macross 20th dvd, so I'm not sure how to fix that.


Keep in mind that there's a big video quality difference between an 8 gb dvd and a 700 mb avi.


I fixed the "untill" subtitle for the main dyrl movie and Tmpeg is working at encoding the final movie. The other video files are fixed and ready for the dvd menu, so all I would need to do is plunk in the sdf mml mpeg into the dvd menu, fix up the dvd chapters, compile the dvd and turn the dvd into an iso ready for bittorrenting!

It's that "easy". :p

Super Dimension





SDF MML DVD Extras Available on MiniNova.org!!


I posted SDF MML v2 xvid ac3 on MiniNova.org that looks just fine, but I'm having difficulty getting the movie to go into the dvd menu properly. I found that the audio was slightly off synch or the psx video scenes look pixellated, so I'm re Encoding the movie now.


It's a whopper big file, so you can expect it to take 2-3 weeks for downloading because there is just me uploading. But don't worry I'm going to be seeding this dvd for a while. I will look into uploading dvd and extras onto a collector's rapidshare account, but that will take me about 2 weeks to upload as well.

After making and watching two dvd versions of SDF MML and listing the whole dvd and extras to bittorrent, I found a few more fixes that needed to be done. I'm going to post the final dvd with fixes to rapidshare in the next 2 weeks.

1.Audio synch was lost 3 times in the movie by a few milliseconds. It's not noticeable if you haven't watched this movie as much as I did and haven't watched lots of Japanese shows.

2.Flashback concert part one has smoother transitions.

3. The first introduction is a bit choppy for some reason. I had a previous mpeg of the whole movie that has a smooth introduction video. I encoded that old introduction scene and the edited main movie separately to plug back into the dvd menu.

4.Videolan has a problem with two of the video files, but the dvd plays just fine with any other software dvd player and standalone dvd players, so I'm just leaving these videos as is.

I think I have the movie just the way I would like it for now.

Time to start my next project.

minor note:

I think we'll be seeing a version 3 of sdf mml for the dvd sometime in the near future.

I've been having difficulty getting the sdf mml mpeg to go into dvdlabpro's dvd menu without losing audio sync when I use the demuxed Tmpeg video /audio files or the womble mpeg demuxed by dvdlabpro (24 fps). When I try a work around by converting the mpeg to dvd with ConvertXtodvd, I get a pixellated picture, but matched sound (30fps). Dgindex and cc encoder software will be finished giving me some more demuxed video and audio files to play with by tomorrow. :wacko:

After viewing multiple combinations of demuxed video/audio files, I noticed that sdf mml v2 has an error with the zentraedi scout ship fading before the end of the scene. That needs fixing for the dvd version.

(Fixed: Under womble mpeg video editor, I need to encode all of the work file into an mpeg in order to match up the womble audio to the better quality mpeg video of Tmpeg software.)

Gubaba was telling me that he's keen on updating DYRL and Flashback subtitles for his Mega Macross bittorrent for next year. So, if he can send me the .srt file, I could then reupdate the subtitles for sdf mml.

If anybody spots errors that could be fixed in the sdf mml v2 video, then send me a pm and I'll see if I can get it to work.

(For example, pixellated video in 2 second Flashback concert part 1 is fixed for version 3, by pasting in a clip from my copy of remastered flashback dvd)

SDF MML v1 deleted from iMacross4 to make room for SDF MML version 3 xvid ac3 avi, which I'm uploading now.

SDF MML v1, v2 and Extras are still available through bittorrent.

See above posts.



I'm working on the final version of SDF MML for the dvd.

Fixes include

1. Flashback concert 2 with redone subtitles

2. M 0 clips cropped a bit, so they fit in with wide screen

3. no "untill" in subtitles

I hope I'm almost done. The last trial run of the dvd worked just fine. It's just a matter of little details then tmpeg takes a day to encode the video. I think I can post the dvd .iso by this weekend.

I think I actually learned something about video editing that will make the SDFM Clash of the Bionoids a little easier to do.

Clash of the Bionoids is on hold this week.

I'm re organizing and backing up iMacross4. It's a lot more work than I thought because there's a lot of files and I'm backing up to dvd s and to an extra hard drive.

I accidentally deleted the Macross Frontier files from my rapidshare folder when transferring to a rapidshare free collector's account. I was trying to make more room on my premium rapidshare account for the upcoming Frontier series. No files were lost; I just need to upload the Macross Frontier stuff onto iMacross4 again. 2-3 weeks for uploading, since I'm also using bittorrent to upload my macross fan edits.

Macross Share website still has Macross Frontier stuff on his first webpage for downloading.

So, my macross project for this week, other than backing macross stuff up, is

re doing the remastered dyrl with english subtitles.

G_P dyrl v2 is really good, except for using Hurin's old version of his subtitles and the karoke subtitles. Some people on Macross World would have liked the original grainy version of the dyrl movie rather than the filtered G_P dyrl version. Then there's also the audio pops on the remastered dyrl dvd, which don't sound to be on G_P's dyrl and the 6 frame bodolza video glitch.


1. original remastered dyrl video

2. perfect edition dyrl audio

(had to adjust the audio synch a bit to match the remastered video)

3. 6 frame bodolza video glitch

(easy fix with womble mpeg video editor software)

4. I have my updated version of Hurin's dyrl english subtitles ready to go.

I'm just running the remastered dyrl dvd though autogk to get the .avi video encoding fixed up for the womble mpeg editor. In womble I'll do my video and audio fixes. Then I can add the subtitles with autogk and get this uploaded in the next 2 weeks along with the Frontier files.

Then I'll get back to Clash of the Bionoids by next week.


After the Clash of the Bionoids, I was going to do a mini dvd of Hikuro's Dark Heroes Entertainment : Macross Zero episode one english dub. Maybe, M0 episode one needs an english title?

1. upgrade the wmv video

2. dvd menu

3. cover art

4. any macross zero extra features?

trailer or Macross 0 zero

After the M0 upgrade project, Macross Plus remastered dvd s will reach me by the end of next month for my next project. Macross Plus - The Alpha and The Omega Extended Edtion, which will include mecha footage from the ova s back into the movie.

I just thought I would post some reviews on SDF MML.

Here's a quote:

"I like the entire idea behind this ... This is not going to be approved on fanedit.org, the reason being is technical. The film as a whole suffers from a lot of artifact noise, macro blocks during most scene changes and movement, slight film stutter when one framerate is not converted properly to another, but the biggest issue, an odd kind of noise that appears every other frame for the entire film. This odd artifact literally looks like venetian blinds you may have in your house if they were vertical. When I first saw them I figured it might have been from the video game footage but as I watched/skimmed through, it is there for the length of the film. The fact that you made this a DL disc and it looks the way it does will have many people complaining. The making lacks quality so much that there is a good chance, people will not be happy at all, which could result in really bad reviews and a bad reputation."

knight26 also posted a review.

"The new prologue parts and PSX footage really doesn't mesh well, there is just too great a difference in animation, and story wise they don't work becuase you have no idea of the conflict going on there. The zentraedi fleet scene, that was completely unneccessay and looked very bad. Integration of the 2012 footage to the concert, sorry that really hits me the wrong way, none of it meshes correctly, justy put it at the end where it belongs."


So, I won't be able to post this movie on FanEdit.org beacause of numerous technical flaws. The fan editor reviewer has not seen if my inserted extra scenes actually fit in with the movie's main story line. I'm not sure how to fix the mistakes I made.

I was hoping that knight26 would point out specifically what my mistakes were and how to possibly address the mistakes I made. He was saying that he much preferred the perfect edition DYRL just the way it is.

I'm guessing the video problems stem from using G_P's DYRL v2 video, which was filtered and using it in the fan edit. Then there's the differences in frame rate (16-30 fps) between the SDF, DYRL and Flashback video footage that caused audio / video synch problems. I solved the audio sych problem by running the movie through ConvertXtoDVD as 30 fps, so I could have some video files that could be used by dvdlabpro. I just felt happy that I was able to get some result from all the effort I put in. I was a little bit deluded. Oh, man. :(

I'll see if anybody can make some suggestions on how to fix my mistakes. I'm stumped.

I'm not sure if I should just pull the plug on the MiniNova.org bittorents right now or wait a bit to see how disappointed people can get.


I"m just waiting for Gubaba to look over the DYRL subtitles and then I'll upload the remastered DYRL avi to iMacross4.

The Clash of the Bionoids fan edit is not as complicated as SDF MML, so I can't make as many mistakes.

Raul2106 also posted a review on SDF MML v1 or 2:

"Your DYRL edit is truly unique and should be appreciated and cherished for all the hard work and dedication you have given it. I personally love it and believe your edit to be a new favorite. I don't know what kind of equipment knight whatever used to watch your film but I watched it with my HD-DVD A-30 and connected my Sony wireless DTS headphones into the optical audio jack and had a beautiful experience. Not to mention the fact that my first viewing of it was with my wife and she enjoyed it. My wife doesn't really even like anime much. So all that being said if fanedited rejects your work I say it is their loss. Thanks again for a truly beautiful viewing experience. Looking forward to CLASH OF THE BIONOIDS!"

So, that cheers me up a bit.


I'm just getting the remastered dyrl into shape for uploading to iMacross4 and then I can work the remastered dyrl avi into shape for the Clash of the bionoids. Converting the mpeg into an avi with autogk now. Gubaba is still working on updating the dyrl subtitles.

I'm doing a lot of backing up for iMacross4 and one of my computer's hard drives died. So, that kept me busy last week. I found a whole bunch of stuff to upload to iMacross4. Stay tuned for next week to the iMacross4 FAQ for updates.

It took me 3 weeks to figure out why the remastered dyrl kept getting this venetian blind video effect when turned into an mpeg. Also, that the resulting mpeg audio and video file were not matched for dvdlabpro to turn into a dvd.

Womble mpeg video editor is good for editing, but not at all good for encoding video files into mpeg files. I used Tmpeg software to get an mpv video file at 23.98 FPS from Womble and out came a video even better looking than the original dyrl. Less grain with same level of detail!

So, from now on, I'll use Tmpeg for mpeg encoding and check at what frame rate is the original video files. When mixing video/audio files of different frame rates, I think I'll have to use ConvertXtoDVD to get the video frame rates of all the different videos to be all at 30 FPS.


Basically, I have a very good avi of the fixed remastered DYRL. It'll be a couple of weeks before I can upload to iMacross4 because I would like to get the english song subtitles on the tope margin.

Better picture, perfect edition audio (no pops), 12 frame Bodolza fortress video glitch corrected and separate english subtitles.

Gubaba and I have been updating Hurin's transliterated DYRL subtitles.

I received his updated DYRL subtitles this evening, so I'm going to spend a little time tomorrow and Monday to double check the differences between his DYRL subtitles and my copy. Gubaba has attempted to make DYRL as accurate as possible, so I'm going to post on iMacross4 both versions of subtitles as soon as I check through both.

I'm thinking that I'll hard encode the song subtitles into the dyrl video, so that they are placed on the top margin of the video and then leave both Gubaba's and the older version as separate subtitles. That will take me 3-4 days to title the songs with Womble video editor and then encode the Womble edit into an mpeg with Tmpeg and then use AutoGK to turn the mpeg into an Xvid avi.

Gubaba has also updated the Macross Plus subtitles and he is also planning to do a lot more Macross translations this year for his Mega Macross Torrent Upload project. Thanks Gubaba!


Currently, I'm going to work on getting most of the Clash of the Bionoids done this week. Tomorrow, my younger brother needs me to get some stuff onto ebay. So, I can start on COTB Monday morning. Busy, busy.


Since, I have figured out how to use Tmpeg, then for May, I'll redo SDF MML one more time. I would have to do a lot of retiming of subtitles and video editing because I now have the remastered Flashback and Macross 0 ep 1 is in the mail from cdjapan. There's a lot of video quality fixes needed. The Flashback concert scene needs the audio balanced better. The ending credits neeed realiging. oops. I would also like to figure out how to do photoshop better. Otherwise, I like where all the scenes are transitioned into place.

I'm on holidays for May, so I can get SDF MML V5 done as a bittorrent dvd and an Xvid avi on iMacross4.

Also, when M zero ep1 gets to me in the mail, I can get Hikuro's english dub M0 ep1 upgraded to dvd with some cover art.

Then I hope I'll learn enough to do a good job with the Macross Plus Movie Extended edition "The Alpha and The Omega"

I still have to watch M Frontier ep 2 :p

bye for now
