My credits are either integrated with the video via a transition/effect or is shown while the song plays. Cutting it off would mean cutting up the song and some parts of the video in a rather abrupt way. :?
Yes, your videos are kinda different as they work with the bumper credit. But what I was trying to say was that I make 2 videos of the same one. One with the bumpers and one without. I also try not to integrate them with the song. But hey, people do what they can to make their videos work the way they want them. I don't blame you for integrating your bumper credits. They do work very well with the video and I can't see anything else that would work... I talk too much... Back to reviewing videos once again! 8)

My main problem right now is the six-minute limit. A video I really want to enter is 6:16 long. So, I went in Premiere and edited out what I could. I added in 10 seconds of black on front and end, and now the entire video is exactly 5:59:01. Mwahahahaha... Why do I feel like I'm cheating...? Hopeful question: does the black part count as part of the video time? Now there's just the issue of making the cuts look as natural as possible. This video will get shown at a con.

I'm about half done making a new video right now. I should be finished by the deadline, so I'll enter that too if I can.

I have another question: does it matter if there are voice-overs in our videos? I know that some cons don't allow any. I didn't see that in the rules so I hope it's okay...

So if I can take care of all these problems, I am going to enter two videos via FTP into the drama category, and maybe some others if I feel that they are worthy^_^

Hitori...4 is the limit so yes you can submit the new parody you've created that is no prob....About the integrated bumpers with the video.....You can submit BUT the judges MAY disqualify your video...it's their choice....Best thing would be to get one without those bumpers but if not you can still submit...and about that 6 minute limit....when I think about it a few of my videos are above 6 minutes...so I'm bumping it up to 7 minutes so you can still submit =D

Format AMV:\? (Y/N)

Postby Ashyukun » Wed Sep 25, 2002 8:18 am

What the hey, since I just finished re-mastering one of ours I may as well enter it. One thing that isn't stated in the rules- what will be the format/resolution that you will be converting the videos to? As I have the full-res master version, I may as well submit the video such that you don't have to re-encode it.

I hope that it goes over well... it's kind of the opposite of what is normally done in AMVs (technically, not content-wise), and while the few people who have seen it have really liked it, I don't know if AMV purists will even count it as an AMV. :p

Ikasu wrote:lol....Thank god I atleast got one reply....And no...You don't have to be at the contest...We ship prizes to those who can't make it if thet cannot get a proxy as well...This is a legitimate contest and we need submissions...I'm going to be putting a LOT of time into capturing the vhs tapes I receive, editing, encoding.....This contest is going to be a pain in the ass for me but I just want it to be successful...But for that to happy I need submissions.

I'm just glad that you are willing to submit...=D...



I would be more than happy to send in a couple of vids in that case, I just didnt want to be a lame ass and send in vids when I wasnt planing (or rather, just cant) attend, especially since you guys are putting so much work into the prizes and setup.
Ill have my vids in right after AWA is over, and good luck with this guys :D

Thank you very much everyone...And it seems everything is falling into place...

Ashyukun: I'm sorry to say that no matter what I will have to work on all the submissions that make it to the finals....I am actually taking the time to add the csun logo and name of creator/video before each video...and make short 20 second previews when voting time comes around...This isn't going to be just any normal contest....It's going to be held like an actual pro contest...but run by the fans..=P....But I've been doing video work for 3 years now....I know enough and trust me no submission will have a loss in quality....I promise that...The way the files are received is how they are going to be displayed...but just adding the logo for the contest before and after every vid with the information needed....

Ohhh...almost forgot....any resolution about 320 by 240 will be fine...the larger the resolution the better it will look...But that only is if your soure file is a large resolution...It wouldn't be too much of a good idea taking a 320 by 240 source and stetching it to let's say 720 by 480....=P

Really? That's great^_^ So now I'll be entering that video for sure... Now I just have to find a good way to add black and convert all of my videos into mpeg's...

After I finish this video I'm currently making, I'll ftp two drama vids and one fun/upbeat vid along with the entry form. I hope the contest is a success... it's too bad I can't be there in person :cry: .

I guess the only reason that last thread didn't take off is because castor started it...Damn you castor!...Damn you to hell!....hahaha...Just messin'....

Satori: Thank you for your future submission....And yes...DMXRider....You talked to me and are at the moment...heh...

Silver Moon: The 15 seconds of black is only for VHS submissions...Did I forget to state that in the rules?...For Data submissions it is not required...
