About 6 years ago (maybe more) I decided I was going to remake and "remaster" this AMV of mine, which is one of my favorites, and one I thought deserved to be better quality (and have a few nit picky changes).

I had gotten about 40% through remaking the video but then stopped working on it. Then I got a new computer which didn't have any of the old software that could properly render the footage I was using, although all the files and the project file were still saved on a hard drive. I thought I wouldn't be able to recover what I had already done so I just gave up on it and let those files sit.

Fast forward a bit and a friend of mine shared one of my other Rurouni Kenshin AMVs, bringing back memories of this one. I still had all those files, so I figured I'd try to see if I could get them working. After re-downloading Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 (even though I'm using CC now) and messing around with AVS plugins and the old "AMV App" I finally got the footage working, and my old project file was intact!

It really didn't take much time to finish it from there (although I had to re-purchase one of the DVDs I used to get all the footage, for $4 on ebay) and I think it came out great! I fixed some of the parts from the original that had been bothering me these last 13 years, some effects I had used that didn't age well, some clips that I could replace with better clips, but for the most part it's the same familiar AMV, just in 1080p (upscaled from DVD). I also used the remastered version of the song, which I didn't have available for the original video.

I'm also aware that this arc of the Anime was recently remade into an OVA on Bluray (which I still haven't watched) but I wanted to keep this just the original TV series footage, since I was able to make the DVD footage look decent, and it would look strange to mix the two.

This is an AMV I'm still very proud of. I made it when I was 16, and I'm now 29. It's amazing how well it still holds up today, and now it gets the high quality version it deserves.
