Is subs in a AMV a good thing or a bad thing?

Postby OmegaBastard » Thu Feb 14, 2008 8:26 pm

I am wondering to all you music video makers. Having subtitles in your videos a good thing or bad thing. I want to hear some of your views on the matter at hand.[/quote]

No. Generally, subtitles is quite annoying and distracting. They also have a lot of negative side effects to them as well.

So.... NO

Entirely dependent on whether or not you made them and put them in.

Come on, we all know you need stray subs, and you also should ad the Cartoon network logo.

And my personal fav way too many special effects.

Not to mention the same bloomin clips everyone else is using to the exact same anime clips, or differentiated by a new song choice.
Anime, one of the few things about the internet that doesn't make me hate the internet.

Do you mean subtitles as in fansubs/DVD rips, or subtitles as in subtitling the lyrics to a non-English song you're using for the AMV? If it's the first, NO! If it's the second, I'd recommend finding a guide for making a softsub file, which you can offer for download alongside the finished AMV.

I'd rather not see subs of any type.

Perhaps softsubs for the first runthrough of a non-english song, but only once. Once I know what the words are saying, I never feel the need to use the subs again.

Unless they are

A) Translations of a song the viewer likely doesn't understand
B) Translations of what characters are saying either seriously or humerously
C) The lyrics to an AC DC song

they don't belong.

I got a strategy 4 u. Just put another text over the subs and write in it :
"GODIX FTW ! BOW TO HIM !" and you'll get Godix to love ur subbed amv.


Subs are just a sign of unprofessionality in this community and they f*ckin like to flame at newbs and think of themself that they're the best. So better ask in a Y0utube Channel if they like subs or not.
Spoiler :
fucking stealing other poeples hard work and claiming it as your own, you guys should be ashemed

ppl fukin fuk spent years making those animes, blood sweat and spilt coffe stains drawing all day long just to get a title "animator: this GUY" and then those music ppl spend years learning to produce music, teams of so many hard working ppl just trying to get their stuff out there in the world then WHAT TEH FUK DO U GUYS DO? u fukin take the drawings, u fukin take the music, then u just slap it fukin together like its fukin nothing, then u make banners and og take credit for it fukin all like u fukin made shit goin amv contests actin liek ur teh fukin shit fukin sayin i amde this fukin liek if u fukin did fukin makin fukin the fukin fukin fukin fukin - MiyaDV (2014)

I dont like Subs like Fansubs or from DVD.
Only if someone made it to it, that i can understand the text of the song. One video by which i was lucky to have subs is Machistador

Those weren't subs, they were bubbles, there's a difference :)

This thread is now about whether text looks good when used in AMVs.
