If you have an opinion on the video, then leave an opinion. If you have an opinion on amvs in general then post it in the General AMV forum.

Ranting in a thread where someone is trying to advertise the video they worked INCREDIBLY hard on is an insult. Go and take your lack of manners elsewhere.


You have failed to miss something very important...

I don't give a fuck about manners on an amv forum

Welcome to assholedom.
I have no idea how to use this new forum.

I hope people didn't think I was diving artists by efx/non-efx. I never said it was bad to use efx but if you're going to use them at leas use them right. Something no one is doing right now.

So they're using them 'wrong' because you say so? Hmm, interesting. And so who decides what 'wrong' is?

Ohhh, that's right, it's up to the individual to decide. I almost forgot.

How is it jumping to a conclusion when you made your position quite clear. :?

smmoooo-oke fire in sky....
The smoke video was...alright, but used spoilers...imo you can use spoilers and make anything look pretty good, seeing how spoilers are normally the best part of the series and have the most action and what not. But anyways, the video was still fairly fun to watch. The part where Kenshin goes ape shit on Shishio...where that little 'score' stuff came up was kinda cool...

Right here!
Weird... I'm currently writing an e-mail to Ian right now...

Back on subject: Wow. I'm really impressed with the DDR vids that I've seen so far! Wahoo! Way awesome. I still remember Mike & Meri's faces when I said, "Hsien said that you could have a track. But... It's 'Smoke.' You've got no choice." We sat down and I played the track for them from my 2nd Mix CD. We downloaded the lyrics 'cause we hadn't a friggin' clue what they were. Man, the three of us were entirely clueless about what the video could POSSIBLY be about. If you don't know what everyone's complaining about, check out the lyrics. Sheesh!

But, somehow they made an awesome vid.

Funny thing is, there really aren't many effects. Couple of arrows and such. With a "dance" vid, I think that effects are okay, 'cause it's supposed to be flashy. Depends on the type of videos. Me, I prefer the dramatic kinds. The ones where effects are seamless and invisible. But... DDR is all about flash, so it's okay.

You want to see an awesome dramatic video that has NO effects in it? A real "old school" video that just completely kicks ass? Check out the second video listed here, the Trigun one. I watched that one go through many changes and developments and while I still don't think it's absolutely perfect (nuthin' is, of course), WOW. I just hope to be that good some day. That video ACCOMPLISHES what I've always tried to do, and failed.

At least, in my own opinion. It might not be your cup o' tea, but I definately recommend it.

Peace, everyone. And don't give the 'launcher too much credence. He's just trying to yank everyone's chain. :)

I just finished the two videos. Great job. I love the simplicity of the Trigun video, and Smoke flows really nicely.

Great work, guys.

...Oh, sorry. I didn't mean to blow off your points about videos becoming more and more effects ladden. They defiantely are. Well, some of them. But, there were always "bad" videos. Too many effects is just a symptom. There ARE still very good videos being made, but I really don't think that it's a race to just get faster and have more and more impressive effects. Yes, many people ARE doing that, but they usually don't make good videos! I heard that most of the videos at AWA were more "old school" and less effects heavy. This sounds like a good thing. People are saying, "Hey, all this flash doesn't actually work!" And now that there are web sites like this one, ideas get exchanged VERY quickly, so copying is a lot more likely.

We'll just have to wait and see. Effects don't make a video, but they don't necessarily kill one, either. Look at your favourite vids and ask yourself how many of them have a lot of effects. Most of mine have few or none, but there are the exceptions (Tainted Donuts, Shameless Rock).

Peace out, and sorry for ignoring your valid (if extreme) point.

I still think everyone is in an effects race.
