what do you guys think of my first amv's i uploaded here

Postby crossovershipper » Sun Nov 21, 2010 10:02 pm

I've never uploaded amv's to this site until yesterday. what do you guys think of them? Is there any issues with download them? I know there's some weird machinish noise in the background but i don't know why it appears on this site. when i uploaded the video to yotube it didn't have that sound in the videos.

Interesting cross overs. Your lip sync needs work and same with the masking/chroma keying. I would suggest staying away from any effects for a few videos and work on your basic editing and lipsync then gradually work in the effects (if needed). You should watch some other crossover type videos to get a better idea of what works and what doesn't.

>Implying lipsynch doesn't require effect use

I gotta admit that I had a hard time sitting through one of the videos and if all of them were like that, I don't think I could watch any of the rest.

You seem to have a decent grasp of effects, but they seemed to go all over the place with no real flow or sync to the song. 90% of the Ash/Wendy video was pretty much lip flap trying to look like lip sync. Even if you got the lip sync correct, it would have gotten tiring extremely fast if the video was just the characters singing the song. Quite a lot of the masking and chroma keying was also quite bad. You should try manual frame by frame masking instead to make it look better.

It's kind of weird that you got the effects down even before working on flow and sync. There are ton of other scenes to use rather than just the characters talking. Like pwolf said, try to watch some of the crossover videos on this site to learn how to do an effective one. If you need any suggestions, then I'll be happy to give you some :)

i didn't even notice that it looked like there was an attempt to lip sync until you guys pointed it out. I see that lip syncing does help improve fan videos so i'll trying lip-sync.also any advice how to mask if you don't own sony vegas pro. i use vegas movie studio which doesn't come with masking unfortunately

There is also The GIMP for image manipulation.

However if you weren't intending on lipsyncing, then you probably shouldn't try to lipsync too much. Work on scene selection and flow first imho.
