Colour vs B&W - Baby, I Don't Care

These 'colour versus black & white' clips haven't worked out too well.

This is the last in the series.

Thanks, Walter !

They are hard work, as the two versions very quickly get out-of-synch with each other !

I re-align things every time there's a jump cut, but it's not enough !

Things might have been made better by adjusting the speed of whichever version I wasn't sourcing the audio from, but the experimentation

required would be pretty time-consuming & the end result probably of no great interest to members.

Another way might be to feature a compilation of brief snatches of each song in a single clip, each being too short to get out-of-synch, but

enough to compare the two visuals.

But would there be enough interest ?

As I mentioned earlier, the black-and-white visual is from a DVD & the colour is from a VHS tape [both PAL].

And both copied across to a PC !

Would have been a miracle if they had run in parallel !
