Taite wrote:Except for the beginning slow part (I felt the sync was off a bit there) all the other slow parts are perfect. They are more emotional and give a nice break from all the action and sort of redirect the video, so it's not /all/ random (to me, since I haven't seen the anime.) It was actually quite emotional on the whole, and now I'm curious about the guy's back story and how she fits in.
And then this is what I hate, because I liked all of the upbeat stuff too. The second half lagged a bit more than the first, and perhaps it should have hit a couple more beats, but I was not that much bothered. That's the importance of you using this anime to me, because the motion in each scene flows with the beats in between so well. If you used Romeo x Juliet or something, you'd have to have effects and pancrop motion making up for everything that the scenes here already did themselves. That doesn't make this amv less good because it relies heavily on the anime. It's smart. People can't often do it right; you can't just pick any ol' scene, you have to pick the right scene, with the exact right motion, to fit what's happening in the song. Like in the beginning action part when the song went slow-mo, you had a scene of the blonde haired chick in slow-mo, but still within the action realm. This is how you do it.
It's something I always try to implement in my amvs. Yes, you've got to change a scene at some point, and you might as well do it on a beat otherwise it will be shit, but on the in between, there needs to be such a connection between the music and the motion within the scene (or atmosphere of a still scene) that it holds for itself. And it's hard to get it just right.
All of this adds impact, and you pretty much hit it on the head. The first half had all this (though that quick black oval border that jumped in was the only part I really disliked), the second half less, mainly because the scenes themselves had less action and motion in them, and they were drawn on a half second longer. The effects you had in between, like with the square scenes and stuff, all fit where they were, and there wasn't too much of it either.
This is what electronic-y dubstep amvs should be like. You seriously expect someone to hit every single beat, whether with a scene or effect? Trust me, other amv with these types of songs are like that, and they're shit. I don't get why so many people complain.
Of course there's room for improvement, as in any amv. I was surprised this amv was from you actually, because it was completely different than your others! Really though, only good "dubstep" amv I've seen.
**point of my rant is just that I think people don't really pay attention to the motion of the scene, and rather focus on effects and how fast it is in changing scenes in comparison to the song, which are both unnecessary.

Just kidding x33 I really enjoyed it. I agree with ryan but as said, syncing dubstep aint easy and you took the chance x33 Glad you decided to edit with dubstep x33

the song was actually interesting. i don't like dubstep much, but it was a decent pick.
the frames effects were not "immersive" but they were helpful for rythm/beat. maybe it would have helped your concept of "time-bender saber" to use returns/rewinds of frames in order to avoid hits or a terrible fate? like "prince of persia:sands of time"? maybe that would have been nice.
despite these details, it was enjoyable. not the ultimate FZ AMV i wait for, but a pleasant one. And it was surprising to see you try this style of amv, it's fresh
Hope your next one will meets your expectations during editingSpoiler :

I liked it. Nicely crafted! Solid video-- I left you an opinion with more feedback

I know Niwa got one while I was sleeping. Such a mean Pancake!
NEWHO! I actually liked this edit, some bits felt a bit slow but I still liked watching it all the same.
xDreww wrote:Told you this before, just really couldn't get into this. Your emotion was there at times, your syncing is pretty good. I really like the 3d motion tracking that you did. Really dig those parts. Well done.
Though for me I just picture this song to be more aggressive in an AMV. I keep thinking of Akens version to this song with diebuster. Really enjoyed that one, but I don't really want to compare. Didn't really love it overall, its a cool video, so great job like always. :3

Niwa wrote:Saw a couple of betas in the early stage, and I quite like the scene selection but in terms of pace, it needed a tighter sync and faster rythm, especially if it dubstep. Colouring matches the slow part's atmosphere and most of the fast parts aswell. I also liked the masking transition and multi windows as a transition, it seemed to give the video a bit of it's own style and could've had use more of it. It made me more interested of watching the show now since I'm big fan of Type-moon franchises, especially Fate Stay Night Overall I enjoyed it and it was quite different from other dubstep videos that I've seen so far, that doesn't constantly focus on the pace or beat syncs.
Good job Secretary Pan---
Now.... where's those papers D:
