Stevie Nicks Video Anthology DVD1 - Crystal

This DVD is part of DVD compilation, of about 4-5 DVDs, that I am making at the moment. I actually wanted to seed them all together, when they are ready, but I get so depressed with this at times, that I want to give it all up. This DVD is a product of about 2 weeks constant work and I was curious what you think about it. 90% of the tracks are overdubbed, with the original audio, so is probably one of the best video compilations, at least from the audio aspect.

What was done?
- Stop Draggin' My Heart Around: The speed of the video was reduced and the audio from 'Bella Donna' was used. Audio starts and ends about 1/2 second before the audio. Video Quality: A, Sound Quality A+
- Leather And Lace: Video from 'I can't Wait' VHS was used, but unfortuantely audio wasn't synchron to the video, I fixed that, but couldn't get it synchron at the beginning. Video Quality: A-, Sound Quality A-
- Edge Of Seventeen: The official live video from the the HBO Special was used, and overdubbed with the audio from the 'Enchanted' box set and synchronized with the video. Video Quality: A, Sound Quality A+
- If Anyone Falls: Video speed was reduced and overdubbed with audio from 'The Wild Heart'. Unfortunately, it's a bit unsynchron at the end. Video Quality: A, Sound Quality A+
- Stand Back: Video speed was reduced and overdubbed with audio from 'The Wild Heart'. Unfortuantely the video audio had a shorter mix, so that there is a minimal 'audio hiss' at the end. Video Quality: A, Sound Quality A+
- I Can't Wait: Original video unfortunately started later, that's why the audio starts at the 'intro picture' at the beginning of the song. Video speed was reduced and again a audio track hiss of the overdubbed audio from 'Rock A Little', because a different mix was used. Video Quality: A-, Sound Quality A+
- Talk To Me: Only overdubbed with 'Rock A Little' audio. Video Quality: A, Sound Quality A+
- Rooms On Fire: Only overdubbed with 'Other Side Of The Mirror' audio. Video Quality: A, Sound Quality A+
- Whole Lotta Trouble: Live video overdubbed with the original audio bootleg (lossy) from Westwood One broadcast of Houston. Video speed was reduced and audio cut, because of a different mix. The video was made longer, because the original song was longer, so I took videos from the beginning (when Stevie wasn't singing) and I put it at the end (If you saw the video for the first time, you wouldn't recognize it). Audio already starts at the 'intro page' and sounds funny overall, because the vocals weren't overdubbed afterwards. Video Quality: A-, Sound Quality A-
- Sometimes It's A Bitch: Only overdubbed with 'TimeSpace' audio. Video Quality: A-, Sound Quality A+
- Blue Denim: Live video only overdubbed with 'Street Angel' audio. Video Quality: A-, Sound Quality A+
- If You Ever Did Believe: Video speed was reduced and overdubbed with 'Practical Magic O.S.T.' audio and the copyright picture at the end was made longer, because the audio ends later. Video Quality A, Sound Quality A+
- Everyday: Only overdubbed with 'Trouble In Shangri-La' audio. Video Quality: A, Sound Quality A+
- Sorcerer: Video speed was reduced and overdubbed with audio of 'Trouble In Shangri-La'. Audio start with the 'intro page' and has 2 little hisses, because of the different mix. Video Quality: A-, Sound Quality A+
- Insider: Video speed was reduced and overdubbed with audio of Tom Petty's 'Playback' box set. Quality: A, Sound Quality A+
- Edge Of Seventeen (Unreleased Video): Low quality videofile speed was reduced and and overdubbed with 'Bella Donna' audio. Video Quality: B, Sound Quality A+
- Stand Back (Civil War Version): Low quality videofile speed was reduced and and overdubbed with 'Wild Heart' audio. Video Quality: B+, Sound Quality A+
- Bootylicious: Youtube video file was used and audio was made louder. Video Quality: A-, Sound Quality A-
- Dreams: Youtube video file was used and audio was made louder. Video Quality: A, Sound Quality A-

Every video has a short introduction page with either audio from different master reels, live versions or beginnings of songs. A menu was made and the DVD is fully chaptered.
The DVD was made into 16:9, because otherwise the video would look stretched and the quality would be worse.

This compilation (and the rest of it) is a Stevie-only production and Fleetwood Mac members only appear in it by chance. It could also happened that a black picture for 1/2 seconds appears, this is a mistake from the speed reduction process.
Now that most mistakes of the DVD are listed, please don't watch this DVD prejudiced, because it may not look like it, but it was a whole lot of work.

Notes (from fmfanuk)
DVD is authored in 16:9 PAL, which means it may play in a small square of your TV, if you have a zoom option on your TV this may help,  overall quality is about a B+. This compilation is referred to as the Stevie Nicks (Thrown Down) Video Anthology so not to confuse it with other anthologies.
