I am really, really, really pissed off right now. Four weeks of hard work have essentially gone down the toilet.
As many of you probably know, I’ve been working on a DVD for the ITG tournament that I attended last month. I’ve spent four weeks capturing video, editing it down, screwing around with the DVD authoring software and whatnot. I finally burned a copy of it just now.
It is the single most terrible video I’ve ever seen.
The video quality resembles that of a 3rd-generation VHS dub. The titles are all chopped off along the bottom and left edges. The frame rate is about 15 FPS. The audio sounds like one of the channels isn’t working. The production value of this damn DVD couldn’t even be considered of amateur level. And that’s not even considering the god-awful software that won’t even let me add chapter titles to the individual matches. The whole product is absolutely atrocious. And if I didn’t delete the raw footage from my hard drive to save space (it took up about 25% of my C drive), I’d probably still have to recapture everything; even the quality of the un-rendered bonus videos was mediocre at best.
There’s no way in hell I could sell this thing. Absolutely no way. This project was a disaster, through and through.
