Congratulations for all the work that's been done... It's really amazing everyone! The least I could contribute is some videos. Well I'm replacing eidoslogo.avi, sqlogo.avi and opening.avi with some cool videos. Goal is to explain the starter story in a smoother way for someone that's not familiar with the game. The videos I edited are from youtube and i will post my sources as soon as I post the links for download. I am currently rendering the sqlogo.avi and I wish it works fine (I'm rendering into 1080p so it will take some time with adobe premier, afterwards I need to rerender it into 1280x960 with mp4 to avi to work in the game). I use resolution 1280x960 for my 32'' screen and i play on 1920x1080. Thanks and I hope you enjoy those
If someone is more familiar with the new adobe cs5.5 I would appreciate any help provided. For example I cannot understand why when I export the video sound is always uncompressed. If some can work better on my videos I will be so glad. I will post the links as soon as I upload them on mediafire (i have some connection issues with my ISP lately, suddenly speed dropped to 578 / 2.851 from 1.000/12.000 !!! and things are a little slow since then).
Just a tiny progress update... I tested all 3 filed and work wonderful with my settings! I thought of color correcting the eidoslogo.avi once more. As soon as I test it I will try to upload the files and share
) . My damn ISP has cut down my speed since Friday and after all that happened with Sopa Acta Pipa (ACTA was actually approved in my country-Greece) i"m getting suspicious of what's really going on here!!! Conspiracy theories are truly passing through my mind...
Well I'm posting the links in a few hours... I'm thrilled with the result!
Videos I used!

1. OathkeepersRedRose's Final fantasy vii compilation as eidos.avi I corrected the colors a bit with adobe premier. Please give credit to OathkeepersRedRose and subscribe to her channel on youtube http://www.youtube.com/user/OathkeepersRedRose#p/u/34/6XK8CUVEF2s
2. Crisis Core ending by Ryu Hayabusa (go subscribe http://www.youtube.com/user/Nurullah1200
).: I edited the credits and last scene with Cloud and placed a nice transition to the "continue in ffvii" part.
3. Opening avi by Grimmy http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=8414.msg101495#msg101495
in combination with the technical demo. I could say that I did some work on those two to combine the scene with the train and the Cloud scene from Crisis Core.
Here are the links- DO NEVER FORGET TO BACK UP WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO REPLACE! (tell ME that
* Currently remaking the opening.avi to achieve better quality. I'll try 1280X940 resolution since I noticed subtitles with Cloud on train are half chopped.*UPDATE!!!*
6 a.m.! lol worked all night to prepare my new preview
I would just love to listen to your opinion (and that's just the preview
). I have cleared the sound with some filters for the original version. Here's the link on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iGQcBmoV6FY&feature=youtu.beopening.avi*UPDATE*
After returning back home from an amazing International Iaido/Jodo seminar in Sofia (Bulgaria), I've tried a few things and ended up with a wonderful quality of video and sound that actually works with the game
!!! Here are some sample shots for the sqlogo.avi
redone from start with insane quality of video and sound for the game's intro. Thanks DLPB for his support. Enjoy!http://img3.imageshack.us/slideshow/webplayer.php?id=ff72012022718171294.jpgsqlogo.avi

For full speed!!! Peeje
Tell me what you think
Now working on opening.avi... it's becoming very good! I have corrected some things but it needs some work to become better...***UPDATE***
Finally I'm releasing my 2 last videos and I can say I complete my trilogy setup for FFVII FMV intro remake (quadrology if you include prelude too)
New links are:New opening.avi
(For full speed!!! Peeje
link: New opening.avi
Remade from start! 1280X896 res. Combined Crisis Core secret ending with various Technical Demo releases, with a retro twist transition from the old FFVII opening. If sound is not perfect in some points it's not my fault, believe me I've spent hours dealing with the equalizer to correct the original source file which had bad quality sound. I need to thank UGerstl
for his help last night when my project crashed because of a png file and he made it work! Without him I would work from start... So thank you man!Filetrip

1280X960 res. Corrected the color a bit if you want you can keep the old file
Prelude with Sephiroth Cloud background and cast credits if you don't want the little pictures replacement like in the original modded prelude
Original modded file: http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=8414.msg101495#msg101495
My setup (for those who don't understand how lgps work - read the "read me.txt"-): http://www.peejeshare.com/files/363238353/Sephiroth_Cloud_prelude.rar.html
Of course any suggestion or contribution or even if you want my adobe premier project files are available for public use by anyone asking me.
I think if you start the game with those videos and prelude screen will be the ultimate experience for some fans
Always give credit to real artists! Thanks and keep internet free!!!
