OK, here's my situation right now.
The only workable idea I have at the moment is based on source that is not out on DVD here, so my chances of getting good source are essentially nil. (Yes yes I know there's some way of hacking my DVD player and importing Japanese DVDs at some hellacious markup or something, but I'm not good enough at editing to warrant those sorts of desperate measures.)
...so err, yes. Now I like the idea. It pleases me. It's probably not going to be liked by many, as it's niche in subject and stylistically straightforward, without tons of ub3rL337 editing.
I could not make the video at all, or I could make it now with bad source and try waiting till (if) it comes out on DVD to re-cut a new, better one. (I don't think I'd wait till it came out for my first crack at it, because I don't have any other ideas to practice on till then, if that day should ever come. X_x)
Yet I've heard using sub-crystal-clear source will bring legions of rabid viewers crying for my entrails to be ripped out and baked into a pie.
Do I bother, knowing it will make me happy yet universally hated?
Keep in mind that I don't take AMVing that seriously. I'd rather just sit back and watch the cool stuff other people have done, as I have no natural knack for it.
