I wasn't able to get my friends together for shooting in time :/ Sucks cause the concept has been standing since FIVE was released literally. I'll just enjoy the videos in the contest then and shoot mine sometime later

A bit late for that, but:
If you want to convert your files to smaller sizes without affecting video quality too much I suggest converting to a H264 format(it's the leading format in distribution of small files with good qualities, .avi(especially DivX and XVid, horrible formats, generally gets you bad quality in small filesizes, as does .mpg so I would never suggest those, they are outdated formats), that can be .mp4, .mov or .mkv for example. And putting the resolution to SD should be the best way to leave enough quality and stay below 100mb.(Set the audio to mp3 128bit/s stereo, that can save you another 3-30MB) Handbrake and XMedia Recode(both free) are very good programs for that process.

I just converted my video [and of course send it] to .mkv from AVCHD format, and it didn't really affect quality, but the file size did get a lot smaller: 144mb-> 57mb :3~

I wanna see others videos! X3~ *Excited*

Oh hey, are those who are participating in the contest able to vote or not? : o

Wow, you were planning to use original footage? Such a shame we didn't get to see it, then. I look forward to seeing it in the future!

And thanks for the tips. I never understood video formats and sub-formats (is it?) but deep down I always knew I preferred .mp4 and .mkv for some reason and this explanation justified it! I would love to learn more video-making, gah, I wish I have the time!

Yeah I prefer doing that over cutting together things, it's just more fun to me So I wanted to do something similar to the progress PV.

And if you got any questions about video formats, encoding or editing you can just PM me I'm always glad to help.
