Ofc it sucks that you couldn´t handle the technical side, but you had 3 weeks time to test the program and how it handles large clips or whatnot. 3 weeks should had been enough time to make a back up plan in case the editing program goes down too.

You did not manage use your time well and it is way too much to justify 3 hours by "technical issues"


Okay, so I'll field this one as the editor.

This is the exact same program I used last year for Coruscant's lip sync, VSDC Video Editor. With the right PC and the right hands it's surprisingly powerful, and I've not really had issues with it in the past.

However, this is a different laptop to the one I was editing on last year; it's older, and less powerful. Couple that with its general malaise over the last few months anyway and it's really not at top performance.
Whilst editing, I had 2 or 3 sudden and unexpected crashes, mainly due to trying to render a preview - I did the majority of this blind as trying to preview it was just too risky. Hell, even whilst rendering the final version it crashed (at 93%!), delaying this post by an hour.
One of these crashes was whilst I was still working from an external hard drive; the resultant shitstorm was enough to corrupt the project folder, rendering useless everything I'd done to that point; this was last night. I worked until 3am to restore some of it, got up for work at 6:30am, and when I got back to the house at 6pm this evening went straight back to it. I kept in constant communication with both the hosts and my team, and it was agreed that these circumstances were extenuating enough to warrant leniance with the deadline.

Happy to answer any more questions, but if we could avoid holier-than-thou confrontation and lecturing that'd be graaand.


Ok, so you didnt test the program on the laptop you were working with?

lmaO chill out guys you can't actually care about 3 hours... As the other editor, no one makes "back up plans in case the editing program goes down", sometime, technology fucks u over.

Either way, SA's 3 hour deadline extension really shouldn't be the subject of conversation right now. Instead, lets just appreciate how fuckin amazing this year's syncs were and thank that no one pulled a Hogwarts :P

It was mainly about them being careless, not being late. Btw ppl do have back-up plans for important projects, at least preliminary ones. The judges will do what the judges will do, and we should all respect whatever that is even though we´d disagree for what it would be or not.

When you think about how many users are in the closet and still tried their best to participate and get clips in for this
it really brings a tear to your eye because I know it's not easy
even if something came up where you found yourself not able to do it
just the thought that you wished you could have is good enough in my books

and I'm not saying anyone was better than each other but I want to congratulate Chriskali for being so new and jumping right in with everyone
you had short notice and you still turned it out

and I also want to congratulate squipel it just made me happy seeing you participate and finding a place in the forum I hope you had fun

!!!!!!!How to twink your bottomms' is amazing omg. In all seriousness I think it stands out from the others,
the way it was edited, the choice of song and the actual lip syncing ability was just superb.



Oh my god I just watched the lip syncs. They were so good this year


Spirited Away's was such a great song choice


The quality of these syncs - wow!
