Video Summary:

This is the master source of the Donington '95 show. The story behind this authoring is that RZK contacted me asking if I'd like to give this show a proper authoring job, complete with a synced version of the silver CD soundboard audio. Sounded good to me, so off I went. I'm a fan of Adobe Encore, it's my go to authoring program. When authoring this show, however, I discovered a major shortcoming in the design of Encore. It refuses to work with 704x576 (PAL) video files! It does just fine with 720x576, but that 704 number really throws it for a loop. Encore's solution is to completely re-encode the video, which wasn't an option, especially when working with a master source of a show. The solution was to learn a completely new authoring program, which is exactly what I ended up doing. So this show was authored using TMPGEnc Authoring Works rather than Encore, which preserved the master source files. For the show itself, you most likely already have it. In this case though, I've properly authored it with chapters and menus, and RZK's excellent work in syncing the soundboard audio makes this version a must-have. I prefer this version over the 4th source, which I also authored.
