The source was a VHS rip, but not one of mine. Sadly, it was the only one I could track down. I wanted the DVD version included with Renewal, but that has been out of print for years. I realize it's not the best copy out there, but for the people out there with no access to the documentaries, it's better than nothing.

I don't mind as long as you are NOT posting it to any place extremely prominent like AnimeNation, NewsNetwork, or OnDVD.

Wow, $10?!?!? That's ridiculous. Hopefully, you'll get to put it on DL disc someday, because that's really the way to go.

Sorry about that. The test disc I ran still used the original Opus. It was the only music video left that used Pre-Renewal footage, and in comparison it looked like crap. Especially since it's the best of the videos. So, I used your version literally as a last second addition.

The subtitles only appear over dialogue for two reasons. First, the text doesn't really offer anything that new, meaning nothing you couldn't read about already on Wikipedia or possibly Fan Geek Commentary. Second, simultaneously having subs for the scrolling text AND spoken dialogue would have been nigh impossible.
