Not really, i'm agree with Turbo. :sweat:

Turbo wrote:Don't forget about first use in AMV: 60fps + HD. So I think he's improved.


But it's just my point of view... :wink:

Thank you for voting for MF² :D

This is the first VCA I actually got to watch all the videos in time to actually vote. I am happy with the videos, and although a big portion of the videos I voted for, didn't win. That's how these things work. I think all deserved to win, and I am glad they did.

As for the Most improved thing. I am not here enough to vote for that. I normally don't vote for most helpful, or most improved. So, I don't have much opinion on that.

Either way. I hope all goes well, and would like to thank all people involved. Staff, Editors, and voters. I really love this time of year for this contest. For that, I will make another anual donation to help keep things rolling.

Good job, and congrats to all.
Insert witty signature video link here!

Well, most of my votes didn't win, but for the most part I feel perfectly fine with all the winners.

The only thing I'm kinda miffed about is that megamom didn't get in. He had massive improvement this year. (I would argue the 60 FPS more innovative, not a personal improvement.) And I personally thought he had most artistic in the bag.

Still, I can't complain for the most part. I thought AotO getting most fun was a great compromise with shake that.

Another year and people still don't know what "most improved" or "parody" mean.

Anyways - Got a good deal of vids from the semi-final list - even kept a number of them. Also realized my older laptop can't handle about 1/5 of the vids in the contest this year.

grats to the winners. Bring on the vote totals.

Thanks, but I really couldn't have done it without doki's help. He set up all the web pages and created the queue, which worked towards the goal of making it easier for people to watch as many of the entries as they could. Also, doki and Corran were both great about querying the database for information that helped me make decisions and stuff. So big props to them. :up:

AFAIK I don't think it's the admins want to remove them, it's that the org is steadily declined in # of vids entered each year and if the trend holds true next year there won't be enough to really justify a semi-final round.

That's what I'm thinking, although like I said, it's not a given yet so we'll have to wait and see.

Personally I say don't get rid of the semifinals, just lower the number down to 10 semifinalists.

That's one way to get rid of us riff-raff. :up:

But seriously, just make the semi-finals the final round. Is there a real difference between the top vote getter from the semi-final to final round? In other words, the one that got the most votes moving it from the semis to the finals? If that made any sense? :ying: :book:

Congrats to everybody who participated (and the winners).

And personally, the semi-finals are my favorite part.

Gratz to all the winners!

Yay, Chiikaseizures for Most Fun XD

That said - Megamom, you'll still be the Best Editor, Most Improved and Most Artistic (for Cliché) of this year - for me :)

It was a fun year.

2009 (or VCAs 2010), here we go! \o/

Is this really true?
Ok I myself only come around for the VCA every year now, since I've grown old and have to work for a living :(
But I never thought that the number of posted AMV's where even declining.

I felt that this years VCA stood out from the previous, especially in vast number of really good and high quality vids!
Congrats to all the winners and a big thanks to jasper and doki for making it possible! :up:

I remember this absolutely satisfying feeling, of having completed your very own AMV. (And the shiver before reading a new opinion)
I tell you what, I made my last AMV in 2002, but this year I have to go for a new one. (or 2)
(And no crappy XP x64 Windows crashing when Premiere is trying to read more then 3 avisynth DVD-Scripts from my Raid 0 will stop me this time :amv:)

I was wondering .... if making a video in 60fps is the criteria for "Most Improved" that some of you are using ... than Phan should have won it last year for this video ...



Phan got gipped!
