Thanks for the feedback everyone (especially -Reda- and Ingow for the long posts).My reply considering all the comments about quality issues:
I don't think I will be able to force myself through the same procedure again so you shouldn't be waiting for a re-encode anytime soon.
I personally don't consider the overall video quality bad actually and I'm not bothered. It's also pretty hard to get a 8 minute + video under 100 megabyte filesize and still maintain decent quality.Besides that I doubt there would have been so many comments regarding it if I didn't mention it in the first place (though I was reffering to encoding glitches and errors, not the overall quality), but thats just an assumption and probably doesn't apply to everyone.

One more cossette-video... Not interestingly.
Where your originality???
Well, I'm sorry that this video doesn't reflect your by the russian community characterized taste. I much rather let my sources speak than destroying the footage by applying tons of abnormal and disgusting effect work.

Of course not, Dornenreich are way too untrve

My personal Problem with this is, that I can't stand editing the same thing over and over again, that's why I change the style up again and again through a video, because that's how I like to edit, thats what keeps me personally interested and in my humble opinion I like how the editing progresses and varies as much as the song does.
-Reda- wrote:The song change at 5:20 is absolutely unbearable as well. The source continues but it feels like we're listening to an entirely different song. I'm not sure if thats due to your editing or if its just the song, but it felt really jagged and disjointed, so what I'd ultimately suggest is if it were possible, just cut your song off there if you can't edit with the change adequately.
The actual song does sound like that, I didn't edit it one bit and that had a rather personal reason. It always hurts me deep inside watching a video with an edited song, because I want to keep the audio as the artist intended.

my german sometimes sounds like swedish or dutch when I'm drunk, but I'm not sure if Alcohol could actually make you understand a different a language

I'm not a beginner with this, of course I DID export a lossless.
Phantasmagoriat wrote:Second, the luma range seemed shifted; like making the blacks and whites less intense to fit TV settings. Surprisingly, this changed the mood for me the same way some editors would add film grain to a video. Did you do that on purpose?
If I got right what you mean...No, I didn't do this on purpose. As a matter of fact I was pretty confused when I first saw what happened. I played a lot with brightness/contrast settings and I think these somehow caused the video to turn out that way (Not a bad thing, if you ask me)
Anyways I watched it once normally, then again in MPC via an avisynth script like this:
- Code: Select all
directshowsource("Kevmaster - Desiderium.mp4")
Levels(50, 1, 256, 0, 265)
and I think I liked it more that way.
Directshowsource doesn't work for me anymore (Don't ask for a reason, I really don't know), so I tried to apply that script to my lossless and I really didn't like the outcome as it seemed overfiltered to me. But then again, I'm sure it looks a lot different applied to the actual mp4.
And everyone in this thread should study some german
