------------------------------------------------------------------------
I am a mac user and I am interested in making AMV's. I have a 2 G4's to my dispose. one with OSX and the other OS9.2. Both have DVD ROM, and I know I have to rip the footage off the DVD's. i have not idea how to do this, let alone if i can do it for free. I am a student, still in high school, and not quite old enough to get a full fledged job. I need some serious advice, software, and tutoring, but I assure you that if I am able, I will make some AWESOME music videos for you guys. i am at an arts magnet school in my city and I want to put my creativity to use. I have tons of programs, like Adobe Premire and stuff like that. I use my dad's comp, so they are all his. Sorry I talk too much ^_^

Sincerely,
Melissa, Age 15

:shock: My advice: "Wait till you can get a job or shift your $allowance$ into buying your own Windows Based System instead of a whole new wardrobe every week."

Nice way to treat a fifteen year old newbie, guys, stellar.
If you ain't got something nice and helpful to say then shut up.

Moon, watch your AIM, help is on the way.

Did I also mention that AOL is the pinnacle of public online ignorance? :twisted:

:D *BTW, most 15yr girls spend more in clothes in one week that I spend on yearly PC upgrades.* :D

Don't Diss Macs Kamui.... They are more than suitable to perform the AMV task.

My advice to her is get Adobe Premiere 6 and get the Visual Quick start guide to Adobe Premiere (book) and allocate alot of free time to learn the software and just the same amount of free time to make a GOOD video...anybody could slap a video together in a day, but the good ones take a few weeks to do(not guaranteed though, good is a very subjective term).
I believe the ATI Raedon video cards and the new Gforce4 cards are Mac compatible, so get one of them that has video inpus as well as outputs so you can get cool clips from the original dvd and vhs source and use the software that comes with the hardware to get you clips. Bring your clips and music to Premiere and have fun!! This is your art, so there is no right or wrong, just public opinion, which sometimes is very insensitive and completely wrong and off-base.
Do your AMV for yourself first THEN after that you can deal with the sedated marketing research to appeal with the "masses". (Remember when you try to appeal to everybody, you appeal to nobody)

    Mac
    Premiere 6
    good video card
    large harddrive
    patience
    learn your software
    place to host your finished product
    HAVE FUN!

I don't like macs, never have, but I grudgingly admit they are very good at video editing. I spent 3 weeks editing a school production on a media100 system, and it only crashed once. I'd never actually BUY one, but they do have their uses.

When I was 15, <i>I</i> certainly spend that much on clothes every week... That or you do rather inexpensive upgrading.

But I'll agree with you on the AOL thing.

Inexpensive? Well, I can't just wave a gutted fish wand a la' Puni Puni and make $500-600 drop out of thin air every 2 months! :evil:

True, rudeness is bad, but at 15 you are completely capable of reading all the rules of posting and etiquette included with signing up, like not posting the same subject more than once.

If they were 10 I would understand, but 15, while young, is more than competent to know and follow the rules.

Just a thought.

Yeah... And she's going to use a Magical Gutted Fish Wand to buy the $500+ Adobe Premire for MAC, right? :P

Last time I checked "spreaders of online joy" don't do Hacked of Weat Apple "softwear".... In fact I don't even know of ANY "charities" or "Cyber Robinhoods" that do... @_@

Are there actually any "reliable" DeeVeeDee "extracting" sTOOLs for BIG-MACs? :lol:

He's not a jerk, he's a putz. He pushes off his own bad ideas and misinformation onto other people without first stopping to think whether it'd be either useful or welcome. :-)
