Animix is 5 years old !

Postby WilLoW :--) » Sat Feb 23, 2008 12:24 am

Ok, that's sort of a lie, but I needed a reason...
In february 2003, the concept of Animix started in my mind while I was listening constantly to Deep Dance 50 (I know...)

If you browse the history of the forum, you'll see that my first attempts at finding creators to participate where not super successful :
http://www.animemusicvideos.org/phpBB/v ... ght=animix

but after more than 15 months of work, in April 2004, the full Animix project was released. It is, as far as I know, still the AMV that involved the most creators ever (more than 100 participants).

I recently found a better quality version of the video on one of my CDs, and want to distribute it before I lose it definitely.
Note that it's not "that" good in terms of quality compared to today's standards, and the audio is uncompressed (whatever, I got the fiber...). This video is actually the result of the first pass of the XviD encode I did in 2004. Still, it's better than the versions that have been distributed so far.

Enjoy:

Nice. I like Animix 4 for the most. It´s a pretty interessting project and the first MEP I know =D

btw. uncompressed audio isn´t good. Yeah you know that, but did you know that you can mux and demux it in VDM without loosing any video quality? Just with using Direct Stream Copy to export with? I think a classic deserves better things than uncompressed audio =/ Especially when it´s very long.

I am lazy. I know I should've done that, but the file was sitting there, and I just started uploading it as is...
See the goods points :
1) You can do it yourself
2) People complaining about the sound quality of animix will see that the original CD was actually crappy :lol:

Ok, I know, I have no excuse.
But I don't care, and that's what matters.

Well. Whatever, right? The world still moves on without proper compressed audio in the vid. ;)

Animix ranks as one of my most enjoyed MEPS if not amvs entirely.
Anime, one of the few things about the internet that doesn't make me hate the internet.

I was hoping that that's what this thread was about when I opened it. I was watching the project a couple days ago and would love to see this project revived for a second go. I think it's been sufficiently long enough that you can't be accused of whoring the project.

About Animix II, we thought about it on french forum... but, the most important thing is to find ZE music to launch it. ^^ Is there a good 1 hour mix about 2000's music ? ^^
