Wow I really like the format of this announcement xD so I'll watch your video xD
(yeah unfortunately CERTAIN PPL
don't take announcement threads as announcements rather act like errors must be pointed out as if they can be ironed out
c'est la vie!) No j/p playin Ben xD
I'm cool with pointin out errors so maybe you don't repeat it in later vids but, it just ruins the mood sometimes ya know? I'll just say.. glad this worked out for ya, I didn't leave a QC since action 'vent' videos aren't my thing. but sounds like a stress release and a creative way of doing so least your not out taggin up the bus stops
On the 'flashes' gosh Crackers take a chill pill xD It's annoying but that's what makes a 'vent' video sometimes you just gotta include something that is annoying JUST to show how annoyed you really are. It's therapeutic xD no IDK
but I do find that to be the case sometimes....
Thank you~!! >w< I'm so happy you watched it and took the time to comment!
And honestly, I LOVE it when people actually comment on parts they liked, disliked or even felt pure hatred towards. Like you said, it's how you learn. I take all feedback into consideration, good and bad and try to improve with them. Not trying to say I blindly follow the criticism I get, I do have my own opinions as well, but... yeah!
I'm sorry about the flashes :'D I think they're just supposed to be there, I'd still be kicking myself if I had ignored the rhytm at those parts, and yeah, I still wanted people to be able to see what's going on so there you have it. If this hadn't started out as a vent video, I would've spent more than 10 hours on this, but I basically just wanted it done ASAP and get it out and show my friends "Yeah. THAT'S how annoyed I was. But I'm cool now."
I loved your feedback and your attitude, so this made me really happy. Again, thank you. :3

I went to screenshot it but y'know. Just for you guys, I am rendering a filter-less flash-free bonus version of the whole damn thing
. And maybe you guys will love it, then. :'D
Cirera wrote:As for the flashes, you're right again! In the parts right before the chorus I had edited an overlay layer with clips on it, but basically the problem is, they were so fast that no one could figure out what was there. And also, I was afraid it would throw me back into my, well, "own" style which I'm trying to get out of with the new start. I made pretty insane videos and ignoring the beat was never an option. OH WELL. But yeah, I wanted you to know it wasn't a lazy choice, I tried it both ways and went with this option.
To each his/her own. I probably would have preferred the overlain clips, but that's just my opinion. Honestly for fast drum rolls I like to see internal sync more than flashes anyway. It's cool that you're trying to adopt a new style...good luck though, it's not easy
Not sure how long you've been editing, but (speaking from experience) once you start doing certain things consistently through multiple videos, it becomes really
hard to do it any other way. At least, that's what I've found.
Well, that's the best part of editing! Opinions are different and there is pretty much never a RIGHT / WRONG way of doing things. There are just different styles, levels of skill and opinions. ;w; But I swear never to edit flashes with boring white layers ever again, because from now on I'll hear a faint voice in the back of my head: "Lazyyyy~~
I'm basically just trying to do something different for a change. I've been editing since the beginning of 2006, I was recently ran out of my old username by what you could call a bully, and since I'm having a change of scenery soon, I'm also creating a change in my editing. I don't want to let one idiot prevent me from doing what I love, even if I had to create a new "me". He won the first round, but I won the match.
So far it's been fun, my videos are a lot more easy-going and not so obsessed with the beats (this video is a very bad example of this statement!) and editing is fun when you don't have thousands of people expecting to be "amazing".
BUT that's enough about me. ^^;
