Dont count out wmm yet potential amv makers!

Postby Akiyukix » Wed Dec 30, 2009 8:57 pm

I know i made a past post saying that wmm sucks and it froze and really the only reason im still able to use it is becuase i got a new laptop and wmm hasnt failed me yet on it but seriously guys you may think that becuase its the most basic video editing system in existence tha it cant give you all the affects that something like adobe premier or sony vegas can and to a very long extent you would be right XD but if you know the correct combination of the most basic effects then you can create some cool effects using wmm. Now if you are able to obtain adobe or sony vegas then WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR YOU IDIOT HURRY UP AND GET IT ARE YOU RETARDED OR SOMETHING XP!!!!!!!! but if not then dont think your videos cant be the s*** just because your using wmm. For example if you want to create a flash in the middle of a clip all you have to do is get a long clip and find the part you want to make it flash at. Maximize the time line to the point where it goes by seconds and not minutes. Shorten it from right to left until you get to that part. Copy and paste the clip you just shortened to be the next clip after the one you just copied and pasted then shorten the clip you just pasted from left to right all the way to the end. Ad the fade in white effect to the clip you just shortened. Paste the first clip again to be the next clip and shorten it to the same point as last time except this time after you shorten it to that point you lengthen it from left to right. To check if it works press play and you should see the clip flash in the middle where you placed the tiny clip. If you want to learn other tricks using wmm then just comment on this topic also watch my new vid to see the proof of what wmm can do but like i said before adobe a sony vegas are still waaaaaaaaay better so if you can get those dont hesitate but dont be discouraged if you cant.
The belief that you are the protagonist in your own life is a very dependent way of thought. Downright parasitic. It brings with it the preposterous notion that you’re the only one that matters. Even though there are six billion people in the world. And you are only one of them. Even the greatest of them cannot escape that fact

im positive that one of these days ill move on to the latest version of adobe premiere or sony vegas or if something new occurs then ill get that but this is just for the people who aren't able to get those things so they don't feel bad and so they don't just assume that just because the affect isn't programmed in it isn't possible using wmm

yeah the problem is that most ppl that use WMM have no skill. Not just that the tool is faulty. It's lacking... very much so :| (no time shifting, no complicated fades- by complicated I DON'T mean very complicated-, and MORE?) but it's fine if your ok with figuring out alternatives. To basically everything. As has been said, Koop used a rudimentary program named magix (a bit better than WMM but not as complicated as Adobe or Vegas) to make Euphoria. I think he used Photoshop (which is kind of cheating :|) as well but... I made my first video using Virtual Dub and a stopwatch!! Man I wish I had THAT determination back lol...

I TOTALLY AGREE DUDE people dont have the right mind set to want to make an amv so they dont look for ever possible way to uses each effect to its fullest extent but , and im most DEF not saying im that good trust me, i try to think of every way i can use all of the effects to match the beat and my way might not look as good as adobe or vegas but it gets the job done as best wmm can

For a while I was getting into editing the xml files to have more control over the effects in WMM, then I said "screw this" and got sony vegas. Still, you're correct: it has plenty more potential than people give it credit for.

your original post needs like 10 more periods and three separate paragraphs

windows movie maker on vista and xp was sufficient to make a good amv, and it was intuitive, though crashy. it was only at a disadvantage because it was a linear editor, which means you either have to piece your video together from start to end, or put in placeholder clips to work out of order.

the new windows live movie maker is pretty difficult to use though, imo. they got rid of the clips window, the timeline is difficult to work with. the ribbon menu is horribly set up, there's like 8 functions wmm can do and they spread it across five different tabs. it's like they dumbed it down, except it's also harder to use.

i was considering going back from avisynth to wmm for editing, but after seeing wmm on windows 7, i'd only go to wmm in windows xp. avisynth is also a lot easier to work with in windows 7 now, with the pin taskbar thingy.

and again guys this is really just a post for people who really even haven started to make amvs or have tried but failed horribly and cant get the more advanced stuff. So you can say it sucks all you want but that doesn't help people get the right equipment.

At Portugal we have someone who we call "The WMM Master", because he can create art from it.
Yeah sure Vegas and Adobe programs give you a lot more resourses, but it doesn't matter if you ain't got the skill.
