|description||I just ⑨-ified Supdawg's Stuff Sparta base (also called Supdawg's Creations) by blending it with Cirno's [IOSYS] vocals and her swarm of circled ⑨'s.
This is my personal favorite Sparta remix overall, for the reasons you'll further read below.
This remix has quite of a 3-hour-long story:
Audio portion was no deal, I arranged it in about 15 minutes and encoded it quick, since it follows the same tempo as Supdawg's Mega Mixes.
But encoding the video portion made my software crash over ⑨ times for absolutely unknown reasons (note that this never happened to me with all my other Cirno Sparta remixes), even after splitting it into three or four different projects. To further understand this problem, let's discuss some background stuff:
I do all my video projects with a program named Womble MPEG Video Wizard. First I drop in an image of Cirno and stretch it to one full second at 29.97 fps (NTSC framerate) and encode it as an MPEG-2 video stream (and that's because Womble works best with MPEG-2 sources). Then on my remix video's stage 1 project, I insert several copies of this 1-sec MPEG-2 stream, then during the Chorus, DunDunDenDen (well, that's how gamma3adhexius called it), and Epicness portions I insert images of circled ⑨'s and during the Madness portion I insert several flags and translations of the word "nine", then save the project and hit the Export button to convert it into a new MPEG-2 stream. Since the individual 1-sec Cirno chunks are already MPEG-2, they should need no re-encoding (just copy over to the new stream), except where I inserted the ⑨'s, the flags, and the translated "nines". Between the Chinese and Japanese "nines" there is a unmodified portion so it should just carry over to the new stream, but instead it makes Womble crash. Solution after four crashes: insert a blank "transparent" image parallel to that portion (still looks the same, but MPEG-2-wise it has still been modified so it needs re-encoding), so to encode stage 1 of the video stream, I had to reencode practically the whole stream (no carry-over portions). And that wasn't the end of the ordeal: for stage 2 (where I insert the fade-ins, fade-outs and the "OMG teh ⑨⑨⑨⑨⑨⑨⑨⑨⑨-ness!!!!!!!!!" phrase - this is supposed to be the final video stream that will be later paired with the audio stream to complete the MPEG-2 program file), Womble is supposed to re-encode only the portions where the fades and "OMG teh ⑨⑨⑨⑨⑨⑨⑨⑨⑨-ness" occur and copy the rest over to the final MPEG-2 stream. Instead, Womble crashed at some point between the fade-in and the "⑨⑨⑨⑨⑨⑨⑨⑨⑨-ness", even though the ⑨'s were already encoded in the stage 1 stream. I spliced stage 2 into three chunks, the first chunk starting at the fade-in and ending one second before the exact point where Womble crashed; my hope that Womble wouldn't crash encoding this first chunk was WRONG!, for Womble too crashed encoding this chunk, even though it didn't include the stage-2 point where the program crashed earlier. After three more crashes (overall, ⑨ crashes in total), I ended up inserting more blank "transparent" images parallel to the whole untouched portions of the original stage 1 stream (which meant I had to re-encode EVERYTHING with no frame carryovers! A WHOLE PAIN IN THE ARSE!)
In summary, this remix was the hardest to make, not because it was hard to remix (indeed, the audio was the easiest and quickest part of the whole project), but because of Womble's apparent unwillingness to cooperate in encoding the video (and it's just this remix alone - I never had this problem with my other remixes). This is why I declare this my personal favorite remix overall - and why it has a special place in my whole remix career.
You may ask why I use Womble MPEG Video Wizard instead of a more famous, more flexible program like Sony Vegas Pro. Here's my answer: I am still unemployed and currently don't have US$599 (yes, FIVE HUNDRED NINETY-NINE U.S. DOLLARS, exactly the same as the Playstation 3's original price tag) for Sony Vegas Pro.
