I'd like to say thank you to everyone who has taken the time to comment so far. I've been incredibly tired and busy with work so I haven't had the time to address everyone. I will do so later this evening/tomorrow morning. Unfortunately, I was running on too little sleep and had to rush off to work and didn't realize YouTube's quality was soooo poor. Additionally, it letterboxed the video for whatever fuckin' reason. Pretty bummed about it. I just finished encoding and will provide a download link. The quality on the encode isn't exponentially better however it is clear that it's visibly better. If people would prefer I reupload, and if it's acceptable under video competition rules, I will certainly do so. Again, thanks for the love so far and I will be sure to return a reply to all commenters.

I will continue to try to improve on my encoding to squeeze the most out of this that I can. The original file was just under 20 GBs so this is a significant drop at only 117 MBs. Thanks, Dante.

Damn, I can't believe you were sitting on clips like that for so long. So many disgusting snipes, spawn sticks in CE still blow my mind, and that string of doubles and spawn sticks on Damnation was the best. Solid editing and work with the freecam/3rd person was cool. Looking forward to more once MCC is fully fixed.

Watched this again with a buddy of mine last night. This video is so good. Your H1 gameplay is probably some of the most enjoyable Halo to watch. Your knowledge of the game just comes through so clearly, unlike any other persons GP I've seen.

Damn dude, I honestly didnt expect this clean of an edit. Color me impressed, that's tricky to do when throwing in angles from fancy XB1 footage. Making masking type transitions look good with old SD ghost ass POV footage was always pretty tricky.
Transitions were dope, Gameplay was sweet. I liked the sprees, we don't see those much in montages anymore and with H1 spawns its just cool as shit.
What I especially liked was the soundtrack, maybe I'm just projecting/reading into it too much but it really fucking nails what I'd imagine a project like this would feel like for you. Which made me very involved in it.
The Elmo shout out and mentions at the end made this even more personal and shows your character and appreciation for the community, props.

the 3:35 synch with the brightness/flashes made me think of your h2m6 haha.

With Lat3ski's Custom Edition montage and now this, H1 Videos once again stand shoulder to shoulder with the other halo's.

Glad you got this done B.

edit: how about that fucking OG Xbox power up intro? that killed me
Thank you very much, slater. I feel youíve been feeliní what Iíve tried to get across extremely well Ė I couldnít be more pleased with how much youíve been enjoying yourself. Again, I wanted to make sure when editing the video that I merely created a fluid video from start to finish. I didnít want to mask or alter the gameplay whatsoever, or, really I tried to make sure I could display the clips as they were captured. After all, I felt the need to capture them in the first place. Itíd be doing an injustice to try to show only a little of whatís there. Youíre not reading into the soundtrack. Aside from my schedule and life throughout this time, I have made countless (I mean itÖ countless) renders of this same footage. Iíve always got burnt out from the song I was using and would lose confidence. Throughout those 7 years, I can honestly say I would take note of songs that I would hear out and about that I liked that I thought could work. Long story short, they didnít, for this footage anyways. I will consider them for future projects. Ultimately, I wanted to make sure that everything about this video had a purpose Ė the music was very important in making sure that this happened. I made sure to try to find a grungy sound that would represent not only the time when the game was released but more so, the quality of the footage (literally, the clarity) and the mood also. I am thankful you took notice to this. Thank you very much.

Okay so when i think of Halo tages each game always has a select few videos that come to mind that reflect everything i love about the series, this video is seriously on point with Rippons final for me, if not better, just the best display of CE mastery i have seen, cannot get over some of those clips, and its not even stuff like the Damnation double /stick to snipe across map, Battle Creek whip noscope etc (which are jaw dropping btw) but its the way you present your knowledge in the game with the spawn trapping on Prisoner and the spawn sticks on Damnation, its fucking insane. Remember that French guy in Retrospect who was commenting on the skill levels in CE and how you get fucked bad by good people, this video was the perfect evidence to that and i cant thank you enough for making it.

Also to note i loved what you did with the editing and audio work, angles and general remastering.
/endofdickride but this was godlike
This is very, very kind of you, Hyena. I am a huge fan of yours and am very glad you found yourself enjoying this. This goes directly to one of the main points when I captured this way back when. I never thought Iíd have the opportunity to play the game again and so I was very fortunate I was able to get those last days in on XBC prior to everything becoming hell in my life. I figured I would hold on to this footage no matter how long it took to create something with it Ė I simply did not have the technology capable of handing what I wanted to do with it. Even now I struggled so fuckiní much because of the limitations I faced on the hardware side of things. If I had it my way I wouldíve spent more time on this and made sure everything that I captured found a place in the video. I had to render out pieces of the video several times, import it, apply corrections and FX, and render it out before being able to mask, etc., because all of the operations became far too demanding for my computer(s). I am very fortunate to be associated with such great company, I did want to make a lasting impression with this and new it had the potential to be my best work. Just had to be patient in not relasing the footage by dragging and dropping it in a timeline with music and posting. It was worth it, all the stress in preserving this, to be able to release in a fashion that I found pleasing once it was all said and done. I would have been bummed to have wasted the investment for nothing at all. Thank you so much for taking the time to comment on the remasting. After all, that is what the bulk the time spent on this project was Ė restoration in post.

Thanks for the kind words. One of my biggest challenges in making this was ensuring that I catered to all audiences. I knew the music was hit or miss so I wasnít overly concerned with people liking the tracks or not. I wanted to make sure to preserve the footage for the people who could appreciate it to its fullest (the people whoíve been playing since the beginning Ė the old timers) but also for those who would be experiencing Halo 1 for the first time when watching this. I knew despite the game coming out so long ago, some people still wouldnít be familiar with it so they were there for the editing aspect. It was walking a very fine line. I actually had quite a bit of motion tracking (text based) going on that I felt was excellent(!) but in the end I decided to scrap all newer FX to merely modernize the footage with the edit. It is a rare thing for someone to have clear console footage for Halo 1 so I wanted to try to do something special and, again, make sure to cater to both audiences Ė those here for the footage and those who need the editing to remain entertained. Thank you.

Congrats B, you made me squirt.
Thank you so much for taking the time to watch it, Ox. Youíre a big part of the reason why this video is on this forum today. Seriously though. Hereís to the future and the insane moment weíll create in the future!

Thank you so much. Just to reaffirm: Iím a huge fan of yours and loved what youíve done with your latest! Itís fuckiní naaaasty. Canít wait to play with you more often once I am able to jump on and play. I plan on being a bit more established (middle of moving) come February. Weíll get up and rule the world then.

I really liked that you was trying to use a few angles here and there^

The Halo audio wasn't mixed well unfortunately and it did hurt in my ears at times. Nonetheless This Montage has something special and does a great job in regards to bring back the old glance of the Halo era. Therefore props for the song choice.

Thanks so much for the review, Kiko. Yeah, unfortunately, Halo CE videos might not be as easily understood when compared to the later titles Ė or as entertaining Ė because of the lack of players in competitive matches (2v2 H:CE; 4v4 all others). For me personally, I never ďmontageĒ when I play. I simply play to win and cut what I feel was worth a second like Ė much like the way Iím sure you approach your decisions. You nailed it with your comment, ďsome clips need advanced skill to be appreciatedĒ. Thatís what a lot of the more ďvanillaĒ clips require. But I do very much appreciate your comment on the audio! I am trying to get better in this area and honestly spent a ton of time mixing/mastering if you will. Again, it was very difficult trying to balance audio between three different titles, especially when it is such low quality sound. Thanks so much for your honesty on the audio side. I will most definitely take it into my future edits.

Goodluck in the comp. Very special project and I'm glad you could get it out in time!
Thank you so much for your time, Havey. I am glad you enjoyed it. As I said a few posts back, I am thankful for your input. Those not familiar with Halo 1 was a primary concern and I wanted to make sure those new to the game could enjoy the video as well. Your input is extremely valuable and I look forward to a in depth review if you get the time.

Already got hooked at the intro with the Xbox logo and when the music slowly faded in, then a series of timed spawn snipes happened. And spawn sticks. And a spree of them? Mind blown, check. I'd never pull that off. And those off-host swipe snipes were sick! I was amazed and had this you know, excited, happy mood for the whole time, haha.

Oh and don't worry about the rushing, it definitely doesn't look rushed. In fact it's a very solid edit with fucking ridiculous gameplay, nice transitions, good soundtrack with syncing and angle usage when it's needed. In my opinion the best H1 montage out there, Rippon's final and Image of the Invisible coming close.

Just awesome.
Thanks so much for taking the time to comment, Lat3ksi. Again, I cannot thank you enough for helping me. This is a special project for me and youíre forever a part of that. I am so grateful that this video has made such an impression on you. Ultimately, it is what I was aiming for, to be in a favorites folder, but for it to come across is and be said that this video is up there as someoneís favorite is very humbling. Hopefully in the future if you have the time you can teach me how to achieve footage and the clarity and quality that you create so I can incorporate them into my edits. It would be the most beneficial knowledge I could gain at this point in my opinion. Again, thanks so much for the review. Glad you enjoyed it.

Haha, thanks a lot, brother. To be honest, there was a kill at the end of the clip and also two kills to start the clip that I did not include because I didnít want to clip to feel out of placed or seemed like it was forced to fit the position so ultimately I did cut it. The song tempo was a bit too soft to have any hard cuts leading into big gaps time wise between footage. Admittedly, one of the kills was a pretty nice snipe headshot.

Well done and glad you put in the effort to release this under your terms. Definitely added character to the mix.
Thanks a lot for the comment, rocko! I wish I were able to include more double melees. Theyíre some of my favorite types of kills as well. I have a folder of them and wasnít able to include 12 or so. I will definitely create an unreleased footage video down the road and post it. I will be sure to let you know as well. I am glad you enjoyed it.

Thanks a lot, stormy. Unfortunately, I wasnít able to include 7 or so of them. I wanted to use all leftovers for the credits but I wouldíve found myself being a hypocrite. I hate when certain videos lengths have intro and credits that take up a large part of it. Truthfully, it is important in my opinion for people to receive credit and acknowledgement for their work but I donít want to bore them. If they want to learn more and continue being involved, they will at their expense which is ultimately why I made sure credits werenít excessively long.

Basically, I was a n00b. With H1 I definitely am a n00b so I still get that excitement when watching sick plays, but with h2/h3 I've seen tens of thousands of clips and eventually a lot of gameplay starts to look the same. This was really refreshing though, great stuff.
Thanks a lot for watching, bjorn! I actually was hoping youíd see it. I was messing around with your Mac encoding and was trying to use your methods and software for my project but unfortunately could not get it to function as intended. I believe I PMed you or posted in the thread some time back. Either way, I am thankful for your comment and am glad that this video was something relatively new for you.

Haha, I was waiting to see you post. The ďFUCKING FINALLYĒ is overly fitting and deserved. Yeah, it was difficult to match the footage but naturally there would be some discrepancy between the FPS. No problem for the shout, brother. Youíre my dude. Thanks so much for taking the time to watch. I am thankful youíre one of the people that do enjoy it. I wouldíve been bummed if I let you down.

Thanks a lot, dude! Not many people have seen CE at this level. If more people knew it could be played like this maybe it would become more popular? Hell, I donít know. Either way, no, that was not a ricochet. It was just CEís physics coupled with offhost play (latency, player movement, etc.). I believe that game was with a Columbian actually.

Thanks so much, J. Iíve tried very hard to make sure the edit didnít fuck up the flow and footage. I am very thankful you liked it. I look forward to playing more with you, man. Iíve enjoyed the little bit we have played since MCC dropped. Again, once I am transitioned and established in my new pad I will be sure to get up with you wayyy more often.

Thanks a lot, Wanny! I am glad you liked it, dude. I knew the music wasnít going to be for everyone however as you said and Iím sure youíd guess, I had a certain mood in mind and actually spent so much time considering music for this. 7 years to be exact, haha. I appreciate the time you took to comment. Thank you. Wish I was able to include all of them but I wanted to make sure I had a nice variety of footage. As I said a few posts ago, I had about 7 unused spawn sticks remaining.

Isnít it fuckiní crazy how much time has gone by since our times gaminí together? Itís mind-blowing to be honest.

9.5/10
Yes! Thank God you saw it, man. I hinted to you during my H1ghlights video that this was coming. I am very appreciate of your kind words man. More so that you took the time to share with me your thoughts. I do hope we get the time to game together. Youíve always been one of my dudes around here. Also, thanks a lot on the comment about the theater work, etc. This level of work hasnít been done with console footage before. Lat3ksi is a fuckiní monster and has been killiní it video wise for Halo PC for years now. I wanted to follow suit and try to make something nice for console since itís never done. Also, appreciate the audio comment a lot, too. I am glad it was noticed. I spent a lot of time trying to make everything fit and sound well and itís excellent to hear it noticed. It was rough in areas and I actually forgot to add some clips but yes, every singe sound is hand placed in this video.

The editing is different than almost everything I've seen in the past. For example, stringing together priz clips from different games. Adding in the 3rd person perspectives. Transitions using map geometry to cut the screen. Its nothing brand new but your attention to detail on every clip was nice to watch.

Gameplay was great and you showed off your spawn kills a lot. I liked seeing offhost xbc again, too, it's been awhile. I wish you had more captured! I was really starting to get into it when the credits came up. The music was excellent as well. Great feel overall.
Thank you so much, Josh. I feel your comments are always so real and spot on. Nothing in this video is new by any means however we donít see it done ever in console Halo 1 footage. Thatís what I wanted to try to do here but making sure the footage wasnít hidden Ė I wanted to make sure the footage was still the main part. I do have a bit of unused footage but yeah, through the 7 years I ended up losing some of the footage, which is a drag, but I am not sure what al I lost anyways anymore. Thanks a lot for taking the time to watch and comment, brother. Canít wait to play more with you.

You had a really good sync and interesting use of cinematics. I also noticed a few nice clip-clip transitions on my second watch. I'd really like to download this.
Thanks a lot for the comment, Zhestal. I was very limited with the cinematics due to hardware malfunctions however at the same time I was glad that I was able to make things work out so well despite my huge limitations. I added the download link to the OP, brother. Here it is again: https://www.dropbox.com/s/bdu7jf36nv...Roots.mp4?dl=0
