Now that I've received a good amount of interest here and elsewhere, I've decided to set the deadline. I'd like to try at an end of October release date.
Please read the following post: viewtopic.php?f=37&t=109241&p=1465895#p1465895
New Deadline: November 20th
Complete, visit the announcement thread: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=112030
This MEP will feature AMVs which include the Psychopaths found in anime, or those who may seem to be violently Psychotic.
The main focus is on the heartless, violent, emotionless monsters who call themselves human and the atrocious acts they perform.
This may include any who kill without discretion.
Although this is not a comedy MEP, a humor oriented clip may be accepted, as long as it's "Dark Humor".
In other words, something you know you shouldn't laugh at and yet do.
Any amount of blood and gore is allowed. Even non-explicit nudity is allowed. Other than hentai, anything goes and should be fine.
I don't want to put any specific length restrictions, so as to limit creativity. But the majority of clips will likely be under 1:00min.
So try your best to at least keep it under 1:30 and to keep it interesting. No one likes an AMV that drags on.
Ideally your video should be 640x480 for fullscreen or 848x480 for widescreen and should be 23.976 fps Progressive.
The preferred method of compression is a "Huffy", "Lagarith" or "UtVideo" lossless AVI, with an uncompressed WAV as the audio.
Although, an h.264 MP4 with 320kbps MP3 or AAC may also be accepted. In this case, I highly suggest compressing it with Zarx264gui.
If you submit a clip that doesn't meet these guidelines, I'll do my best to work with it still.
But as long as you check the render settings in your editing program, you should be able to meet these specs.
Your video should be as high quality as possible, while still meeting the specifications above.
Unless subtitles are "intentional" and "necessary", they should not be present in your video.
No form of a watermark will be allowed. Although if you properly crop the watermark off, and it doesn't detract from the video to much, it should be acceptable.
