I said to myself, "hey, that could work! All I need is the RAWs of all the episodes of Kanon 2006, a copy of the song, and learn how to use Adobe Premiere, and I'm all set! Oh, and how to create clips for use in the vid, can't forget that."
...with dialup, to boot. Yeah, it looked doomed from the very first step. But then a miracle occurred: using two different computers that had broadband, I managed to snag 22 of l33t-RAWs' episodes of Kanon. I still need those two missing eps, but I can at least start making clips!
Except I still didn't have a clue how to do THAT. That's where the ubercool Jeff Lawson of Hop Step Jump! came into play, as I fired off a quick e-mail asking for his help.
He came through with a long, detailed e-mail explaining the whole procedure to me, and an offer to help with any questions I had in the future. SOMEONE's gonna be inducted into the Order of the Honorary Duck when this is all said and done...
So. As if my life wasn't cluttered enough, now I've got this project beating me about the head and neck... and it's one of those things that will NOT go away until I finish it, I can tell already.

Well, that, and I was able to get l33t-raws' versions in great big chunks. I lucked out when they started seeding the show in six-episode packages.
FWIW, I'm finding that I prefer the mkv format for video quality. I suspect that, all things being equal, yours probably look better.
I'm curious... how'd you find The Pond? Thanks for dropping in, hope you'll come back!

As to how I found you? I'll be perfectly honest and was doing some "ego surfing" if you will (using "sprocket" "hole" and "kanon" as search terms).
Anyway, I hope the AMV production goes well. I'll be sure to bookmark your site and keep tabs on how things are progressing!
