If you watched the reaction video, does that mean it's ready? I'm really anxious to see it since we had to miss the premiere.

That's from a mpeg2 over 2.2GB in size compressed by DivX to a 402mb AVI. I dare not try and compress further for fear of making the video quality unwatchable.


What program have you been using to compress, DivX's converter or something else to compress using the codec? I've been wanting to get my AMV Contest entry up there, but just through rendering in Vegas, it doesn't want to get under 300MB or so. :<

Is there going to be an official signature banner for AMVS4 like the previous ones? I'd proudly display it if we get one :)

All righty, all regular posters here who were involved with AMVS should have been PMed the reaction video link. If I'm forgetting anyone, please let me know here or via PM and I'll definitely get it to you.

Again, sorry about the shakiness, it actually wasn't as bad as I thought it was, but I was sooo nervous and my hands were shaking... and then I was trying to hold back my laughter as you can hear ^^ I claim 'this is mine' quietly to my friends for the Beck vid, because the friends who were joining me at Otakon this year I made a decision not to show it to them at all so that they too got to see it for the first time from the perspective of the audience. Krvabo, Angelyco, and MaggIvy all had their logos get reactions too, and 'aww's when the music ended, so now I'm all thinking it's time to give myself a logo that I DIDN'T do in the last hour on deadline night for AMVS3 :D

Steph: I render as mpeg2 first and throw it in "VDub mpeg2" to re-encode as DivX AVI. In the case of AMVS, I have to take the extra measure of encoding again to mp4 to get as close to 100mb as possible. It's gonna affect the visual quality some but the size limit restrictions prevent me from uploading the AVI.

Angelyco: the "sig badge" is coming. I'm trying to come up with an image and text that will look okay in that little space. ;)

EDIT: Actually, I'm gonna try to use the Geico "Hypnotoad" image since I think that's the one most everyone remembers. Thoughts?

Logo? You mean the production tag for credits?

*facepalm* Yer right, sorry... I've worked on logos too much, I just call anything representational of a business or person a logo now... my mistake.

Just something I came up with quick, I'm bad with choosing fonts so that could be fixed if you want to use this at all. I was trying to stick with the same kind of design as the older ones:

No problem, I was just making sure I knew what you were talking about :)

Heh, uh, honestly, I'd suggest duping the right eye on the left or something, because it looks like hypno-money is constipated ^^ "HRNNGNRNGNRNG-! *plop* Ah... tainted salad..."

I think I prefer the black background with white text more though personally. Keeps things more consistent these days. For example your signature looks kinda hard to look at now Deuce ^^

Edit: Oh yes! Deuce, can you please do something for me? Can you add in a reduced volume curse sound effect for the marines in the One Piece clip? That moment of silence doesn't seem to work too well, and Luffy's works so well, I'm wondering if you'd be able to do that quickly before you get permission for larger files.

LOL, I love it. Although depending on how much we want to make fun of, we could have some hippie ~green~ looking font (I don't know, skinny lettering, something really pretentious looking like it belongs on an organic restaurant menu)

Heh, heh. Just realized. Money is green. >_>

GO GREEN EVERYONE

edit: to avoid the constipated look, is there a way to make it an actual gif file?? Like, actually have the animated Hypno-Toad eyes?
