Yeah, I thought it was pretty good when I made it, but looking back at it now, I really wish I had read A&E's A/V Guide before I'd made it. One of the basic mistakes I made was that, after I got about halfway through, I started making all the source clips I still had to make at 320x240 in order to save space. BAD idea as far as video quality is concerned. If I'd realized that I was going to send this sucker to Otakon, I wouldn't have done something like that, because the pixelization is pretty obvious when the video's played back at its full 640x480 resolution. And that is the major problem with the piece-of-crap DivX encode that I did and uploaded to the Org's Golden Donut months later. However, it's still of somewhat better quality than the MPEG version on this website.
