I'll avoid the technicalities and ask the most direct question now - (sorry if it's been answered before, I'm new here) - from a seasoned AMV-maker's point of view, what would be the best estimate for man/hours required to produce a minute of AMV video? I don't want to generalize, but time is the biggest question at hand for me.
I now reply to my own first post. Pathetic sometimes how people don't care...
For an AMV of the sort that I've been looking to make, it takes at least 3 man/hours of raw editing per minute of video.
In addition, however, a new AMV maker must also invest at least a couple of hours into reading appropriate sections of the Premiere's (or your program of choice's) manual, take a bit of time to familiarize oneself with the software, spend some time reading the tutorials and FAQ's on the org's website, and of course - have a few hours, and preferably even days to plan out the concept (whether you use storyboards or do it all mentally).
So hah! I'm now capable of finally providing closure to my first, horribly n00byish post.
