Vol 3 chapters 2 and 3 are done, and I've even edited chapter 2 on my *brand new* laptop. The entire process went about three times as fast as it used to. I couldn't believe it! I ran into one minor road block though, being that the site I usually add the sky backgrounds with now required you to pay.
I'll see what the effects program I bought does. It may offer the same exact thing...I've never looked.
Either way, chapter 2 should be up tomorrow or Monday, with a special announcement following that!
