Yo, Hello This is also my first post. I just made my first amv , it took me about 3 days to complete - I know it ain't that good but some constructive criticism would help. The 1 problem i have noticed with the amv is the over use of the 'fade out' technique , I will be using different transitions in my newer amv's The amv is of Samurai Champloo and is an action amv. Hope you like it , please comment. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sgDhRWK-LgM
I didn't notice that many black transitions, they were just super long relative to the pace of the song so they didn't fit in. Also you could do with syncing some of the critical combat moves with a critical part of the song as a bare minimum with regards to syncing. You sort of tried to do that at 2:30 with the loss of instruments but it didn't match up when the instruments were brought back in. The text at the beginning was so difficult to read i think my eyes imploded. That's all i can say really, except keep at it !
