Oh wow, I love what you did when Griffith's talking. Was this the toughest episode to put together so far?
At the end of time, a moment will come when just one man remains. Then the moment will pass. Man will be gone. There will be nothing to show that we were ever here... but stardust.

The hardest episodes were the first and the sixth parts, but I worked on them first, when I was the least experienced. Between the Godot flashback and Griffith's speech in the dark, this was pretty complicated, but I threw them together rather easily compared to reconstructing that Skull Knight scene in the last episode.

What more can I say Griff, your editing is superb especially for part XX. SK looked a lot more creepy in your recut than he did in the trailer. :ubik:

If you appreciate my editing tricks, particularly Griffith's soliloquy in the last episode, keep an eye on the new edit of the other half of that scene, featuring the Hawks descending the stairs of the tower after the Apostle attack on the injured Hawks. Speaking of which, I realized halfway through this one it would have been much easier to stick Skull Knight in at the of that Rickert scene, I even had it earmarked for it with the Skully footage from a previous go around. But, then I wouldn't have had the fun of painstakingly editing together an entirely new scene from scratch! Anyway, wouldn't have been nearly as good, and without closure it would have made it seem like Skull Knight was another Apostle coming to eat poor Rickey! :SK:

Almost there, and what better way to celebrate than with a potentially controversial artistic choice...

I just realized that when the hand pillar rises up, Casca finally pronounces Griffith's name right. She yells GRIFFITH instead of her usual GRIFSSUUU!

Out of curiosity, why was it that you chose to make your controversial artistic choice? Was it due to Femto's stupid red coloring in the anime?

More like pink. :slan:

And yeah, that's my practical justification, and judging from the covers of volumes 12 and 13, the rest of the coloration is no more accurate either, and I also wanted to differentiate the Eclipse Ceremony from everything else. Also, I just like it and wanted to try it, I feel it makes it closer to the original and less gaudy, I really like the way it made the Eclipse look, particularly in the next part. If I do anything further like this project, don't be surprised if the whole thing is like that.

I would have been willing to frame-by-frame recolor Femto if that was the only problem. Imagine that.

Then again, it would've taken me quite some time.

I was a little surprised when everything changed, but I eventually got used to it. It was kind of funny, early in the project when you showed some scenes in black and white I had no problem with it and even thought it looked great. I suppose I just got used to it being in color again.

Okay, I can take a hint, and I did change the rules on you guys at the 11th hour, so I'll post a full color version for the faithful.

Well now we have the best of both worlds!

But seriously, I did get used to it. It was just jarring to have it sprung in unannounced. At any rate, keep up the good work! Almost there!

Same, I mean either way Slan's still sexy. :slan: You should stick to doing the next part in black and white if that's what you prefer. Can't wait for the finale.  :beast:

Bravo, Griffith. Great job all the way through.

I gotta admit. The grayscale, for some reason, made everything all the more horrifying.

I loved the glimpse of The Idea you threw in, also.

And, holy fuck, did that music piece fit during the end credits. It gave it all so much more weight. Nomad should be happy!

What a way to finish.

I don't want to basically just echo everything that Gobs said, so I'll elaborate on how I loved the transitions between the greyscale and color; it had a lot of punch to it and felt extremely natural. But I will agree completely that the credit music was a stunning addition that fit tremendously well; the weight and emotion is really captured and when the portraits go by it really forces you to reflect.

Anyway, it's been a long journey, and many kudos to you for sticking to it. Can't believe this was started back in September. Congratulations to you, Griff. I appreciated your hard work, as I'm sure we all did.

Solid ending for an awesome project Griff. I personally loved the black and white adaptation to the Eclipse.  Thank you for the hard work and dedication.  This project has been reffreshing and dare I say perfect timing for the things to come.  Gratitude for putting my song also bud.

Thanks for the kind words fellas! :judo:

I gotta admit. The grayscale, for some reason, made everything all the more horrifying.

It's because your blood is shaking at the sight of the true Wings of Darkness! :femto: Speaking of which, I also made decreased the brightness a bit, which I think helped offset the lack of natural black & white contrast. Anyway, I obviously really like it that way, just look at how good Judo looks in the video thumbnail image.

I loved the glimpse of The Idea you threw in, also.

I :idea: you too. :slan:

And, holy fuck, did that music piece fit during the end credits. It gave it all so much more weight. Nomad should be happy!

I sure hope so, and it fits so well I didn't even take him up on his offer to compose something new for it, my mind was made up.

I don't want to basically just echo everything that Gobs said, so I'll elaborate on how I loved the transitions between the greyscale and color; it had a lot of punch to it and felt extremely natural.

Yeah, I thought it was logical, and something for the color enthusiasts. =)

But I will agree completely that the credit music was a stunning addition that fit tremendously well; the weight and emotion is really captured and when the portraits go by it really forces you to reflect.

I'm glad, it definitely fits better than adult contemporary rock. :ganishka:

Anyway, it's been a long journey, and many kudos to you for sticking to it. Can't believe this was started back in September. Congratulations to you, Griff. I appreciated your hard work, as I'm sure we all did.

Thanks, this thing was actually started years ago, and the idea was kicking around in my head for years before that, all the way back to the early/mid 00's. And hey, who says the journey is over yet? They're may be a surprise or two yet. :badbone:

Edit: The ending music is really splendid. Your choice is good with Berserk

All credit and special thanks to Nomad for his score, Hill of Swords.

Solid ending for an awesome project Griff. I personally loved the black and white adaptation to the Eclipse.  Thank you for the hard work and dedication.  This project has been reffreshing and dare I say perfect timing for the things to come.  Gratitude for putting my song also bud.  

No problem, thanks for letting me use it!

Bravo  :ubik:
Such an excellent conclusion to the series, that my only complaint is that the Idea of Evil's appearance was way too brief. It should've been on screen for at least 1-2 seconds instead of flash of a moment.
Since Recut is over and complete, the only thing that is left to do now is wait just two more weeks til 319.

Thanks for all your hard work Griff, I enjoyed watching each part. The black and white worked nicely for part 24 and Nomads music fit very well with the credits. I also have to mention that I liked the glimpse of the Idea of Evil, that was a nice touch to part 24. Who knows, you could be in for another recut if you know what I mean. :iva:

Thanks guys!

my only complaint is that the Idea of Evil's appearance was way too brief. It should've been on screen for at least 1-2 seconds instead of flash of a moment.

I considered it, but that would have cut into the Beherits/eye time, plus the flash of the manga image worked nicely right off the bat, and I doubt it would have for an extended period without looking out of place.

I don't, but thanks. :guts:
