Too cheezy/overused?

Postby gotenks794 » Mon Aug 23, 2010 10:29 pm

I have a song with a fairly lengthy piano intro and I was considering do the 'ol piano key effect. You know, with the white rectangle flashing along with the piano notes and such. Do you think this is to cheezy and/or overused? In your opinion, does this have any adverse effects on your enjoyment of the video?


I ask because I'm a sucker for these sorts of things and I've been told some of my other video's effects come off as cheezy.. :sweat:

Cheesy... maybe. Overused? I don't think so. It got quite rare these days I think. I bet a lot of new editors don't even know about it.

Yeah, haha, I was reading some comments on Youtube where someone was like "Ooh! I liked the bars on the piano notes, that's so original!"

It's like we've come full circle.

With the new Video Copilot lens flare pack we will see the rise of lensflare 2.0.

I've never felt less like a noob. I will ponder your statements and make my decision, then.
