I've only taken a look at the first couple minutes and I have a questions/comments.

It looks like Womble was used to do some of the editing (from the hallmark artifacts in the re-encoded pieces).
If I'm wrong, ignore me...
It's much better to do any filtering/cross-fades etc. outside of Womble (e.g. AviSynth). Then import the finished clips back into Womble so it won't need to reencode it.
Until Womble can plug into external encoders like CCE, it'll never be a great piece of software.

Also I noticed the "old film" filter is on after the Pauley logo. Some of the splash pages that follow are filtered too, but that includes the letterbox bars.
It's always a good idea to crop, filter and then addborders to prevent this.

Just my $.02.

I haven't actually sat through the edit yet, but I expect it to be completely enjoyable.

And in my grand tradition, I will reply to myself...

I sat down (finally) to watch this tonight and had major problems with my software player so didn't actually see the whole thing.

But I was quite surprised (and disappointed) to find this was in DD 2.0.
The extra scene and "inter acte" almost seem an unreasonable trade off for 4 channels.

Can we hope for an upgrade Pauley?

Conceptual improvements/advancements of edit over original: I have loved "The Phantom of the Opera" ever since I was a little boy. Seen the Broadway Show twice, read the original book more then once, seen/own the original 1925 & 1929 black and white movie, seen/own the MGM movie with Robert Englund, and of course own Andrew Lloyd Webber's movie version. When I bought the DVD and found that they had not included the deleted scene, which was written just for the movie, I had always wanted to add it. Also, I always thought that the Enter'Acte should have been in there. So there you go...
