I used the best quality videos I could find, most are TV rips from the unofficial 'Video Clips' DVD www.ocularmusic.com had for sale. I re-encoded the videos using Sony Vegas 7.0 and took the opportunity to crop the original letterboxing. All of the audio has been replaced using original CD rips to WAV format and synced to the video in Sony Vegas 7.0. Once audio was synced it was transcoded to AC3 384kbps using EACto. I upmixed all the audio to 5.1 Dolby Digital using Plogue Bidule then transcoded the wav to AC3 5.1 448kbps again using EACto. I compiled the DVD using Sony DVD Author.
If you are lucky enough to have a home cinema system simply press the audio button on your remote control to switch to the fake upmix in Dolby Digital 5.1
If you look at the following screenshot you can see how bad the audio is from TV, hence why I decided to include original audio: http://yfrog.com/5physterj
I created the motion menus in Vegas using a simple procedure of slowing the frame rate.
Thanks to Niall for providing me with the Muscle Museum Single Formats Promo in FLAC. Thanks to Phil for supplying Muscle Museum Directors Cut and Showbiz EPK - huuuuge thanks to Benit for the amazing artwork.
Uno has a third video which is all the live footage you see in the Uno (Original) video, unfortunately the quality was that bad I couldn't include it in the release. It was recorded using a camcorder infront of a TV then encoded to an extremely low quality lossy mpeg.
Like all of the other releases I have put an awful lot of my spare time in this release, I hope you all enjoy it.
