I fully support this.
Honestly, this is a big misunderstanding. For some reason PencilHead is listed as not having effects >.>

Written in the Spirals is probably like, my favorite video from last year. But it's not a "No-Effects" video. I mean, c'mon :roll:

Maybe "Use of Effects" should be defined more specifically. IMO a video that uses effects as illusions for the purpose of helping the video flow (i.e. Written in the Spirals) should qualify as a "No-Effects" video. But if the video is designed specifically with special effects in mind to change the look of the original footage (i.e. Extraball) then that should define it as a "Use of Effects" video, if that makes sense.

that's just me tho. :book:

I see your point. But when I think of "No-Effects" I tend to think of like, nothing at all. Just hard cuts, crossfades and what have you. There's a bit of gray area, but I think anything with dramatic transitions (like the blur / clear bar effect thing at 00:37 in Written in the Spirals), radial blur and etc. classifies as not a "no-effects" video.

"No effects" means "No effects" it's pretty simple. Purpose or intent or method doesn't have to do with it. You either used them or did not use them. It'd be nice if the blatantly mus-categorized videos got taken care of this round - what's the procedure for that? It's not clear from any of the rules.

this is true, i forgot about those.

well another example would be to use a crop effect to cut out lip flap. i wouldn't consider that a "use of effects" video.

And those are covered in the category description.
Best No-Effects Video wrote:Entrants to this category will be limited to basic edits like cuts, simple transitions, simple text, and very subtle masking (such as lip flap removal).

Not a gray area at all.
