Thanks for the feedback DVwerks. I've just added some foley to the intros, most importantly recorded my VCR eating a tape before the main menu kicks in. Since the first random play test worked, thinking maybe there should be three random play menus each signifying a different degradation of the menus going through VCR generation loss. (will probably weight the random options so the massive degredation doesn't show up as frequently) Plus with the last generation being quite severe maybe that might make for some future feedback/"what the crap is this" responses.
I keep putting off the main video final conversion. It's an LP recording (4 hrs) so it's decent, but my capture device recorded at 640x480 (square pixels). Since DVDs are 720 (rectangular pixels), do I stretch to fit (as i've done before) or place the 640 onto 720 matte with black side bars to preserve the original format. (which i think is 712 or 714 pixels?) (don't quite understand the square to rectangular pixel conversion process) Problem is i'm not reviewing on a real TV (don't own one) basing this all off a computer monitor... Will ask this in the tech help forum.
Last call for material from 77-87 to add to the commercial breaks. About to lock the time line, add chapter markers and begin the DVD making process.
