Still chugging along. I'm at about 30gigs worth of content, but I still have a few more key-movies I want to get featured on the disc. It's a daunting and time consuming task, especially since I'm relying on Netflix to supply the discs, getting one every other business day is slow.
It's more work on the front-end, but I think it'll pay off because consumers of the disc will likely find content that works best for their system, displaying their system's biggest qualities. I'm throwing a bunch of clips on the wall, and everyone gets to decide what sticks, it's inefficient logistically but the end results should be good.
In looking at my Netflix queue, I have perhaps 10 more movies that I want to strip clips from. Then I'll move on to authoring. I do still hope to have authoring complete sometime in August. However, I haven't had time to think of a strategy for testing this beyond using my own equipment, which is an original fat-model PS3. I want to at least ensure some reliability before it's distributed. I guess one could also make a trip to Best-Buy with the disc in hand and throw it in a bunch of different players. Testing-procedure confirmed.
