1)Sony Vegas continually crashed when using Masking and Star Burst effects to the extreme.
2) Occasionally I forgot to back up the project onto an extra hard drive, conciquently re-edit days of work.
3) I started this project in May 2010, way before Sonic Generations Trailer’s came out (Sonic Generations is a new game coming out this November, bringing back the old feel with new creative graphics) I rushed these weeks to get this film done so I could upload it just before Sonic Generations is released. Although some music from SG were used, the idea of using my personal favorite levels from the classics and SG’s similar design is purity coincidental.
Testing my patience and humanity more than any other project I ever set out on. You can say I battled my own inner Dr. Robotnik for you to see this ;)
