I did not notice this was up until Ileia messaged me with the sappy self-indulgence thing. (Yes, that was a joke.)

Glad you guys are enjoying the read? ^^;;


Also, Gunther you are so adorable <3

I know that feel...

I think the deaths in the community have really taken a toll on the activity here. Things just haven't been the same...

Also sucks not being able to afford to go to Acen/AWA to hang out with amazing peoples!

Great read, especially the end.

Radical_Yue wrote:Everyone has unlimited potential. Don't limit yourself by saying "this is good enough." Being a finalist or winning contests doesn't make you a good editor. Having the newest editing program doesn't make you a good editor. Working with the most popular or best looking sources doesn't make you a good editor.

Passion, dedication, and a love for what you do will help you succeed. Take all of those negative remarks and bad experiences, and build upon them, use them to become better than you ever thought you could be. Never lash out when you get the short end of the stick, take it with dignity and grace. It'll make your victories that much sweeter.

No matter how many times you fail or don't make it into a contest, or get bad feedback, as long as you manage to progress at least a little bit with each video, one day you'll be better than everyone who became great and chose to stop. No matter who you are, there is always room for improvement.

Nice read Yue :up: though while I like your "flamer with a heart of gold" slogan, I actually dont think its appropriate because I dont consider your method of critiquing to be flaming at all whatsoever, just constructive. Or maybe I just havent read enough of your comments ;p

Wow, to be honest I'm kinda floored with some of these responses. I was pretty sure that the second I sent my interview answers to Code I was going to be facing a wall of hate the moment it went up. >>;;

You guys are freakin' awesome. :up:

hehe, aesling said it one day and I kinda loved it so I stole it x3

I think people primarily have problems with my criticism because:

1) I post it wherever the hell I want.
This goes back to the "if you're just editing for fun, ignore it" bit because a big response I get is "Well, I wasn't looking for criticism so shut up, you're st00pid!"

2) I'm incredibly blunt.
I don't believe in sugarcoating in any way, shape, or form. But then again, that's me as a person in general. When I give my opinions I tell you what I think was wrong and my reaction to it. I'm sorry, but if I think it's boring, I'm going to say I thought it was boring. I rarely touch on what the strengths of the video are because either everyone else has already been praising it so it's pretty obvious what was good (just not what was bad) and that's how I like my criticism to be. Ever since I was a kid, I could kinda care less about what I did right. Whether it was schoolwork, personal job, whatever, tell me what I did wrong so I can fix it and I'll just assume whatever you're not harping on is something I did right because there is no need to touch on it. I don't want an ego boost, I want to do better.

Yue is one of the few people who takes action and genuinely wants to make the community a better place and wants everyone to become better editors.

The AX threads in general are proof that she won't settle for mediocrity. :up:

I do generally agree with some of the stuff Yue says in this interview, but a few things just bugged me (and this is my own opinion here):

Radical_Yue wrote: I don't want an ego boost, I want to do better.



There are some people who have incredibly low self-esteem when it comes to editing, and only pointing out the "bad" things might make them not want to edit anymore.

This is the case with one of my friend. He thinks what he puts out is 100% crap and feels he needs to redo the AMV over and over again and try to fix it to the best of his ability. The problem though is....going to what Yue said about:

Everyone has unlimited potential.


I don't wanna be an ass to say this, but I feel this isn't true. I know what you meant when you were going with this, but for some people, this isn't true.

I'm not trying to make "excuses", but there are just some things people just can not do. Going back to my friend, he's 85% deaf. He can't hear a beat or a lyric even if it were to smack him in the face, so he tries to rely on his hearing to the best of his ability and me, but with that problem is, I'm 70% deaf, so it doesn't help either way. :P

Does that mean he'll be a terrible editor? Or doesn't "want" to improve?

Sometimes a little ego boosting is a good thing IMO, especially under these circumstances.

(btw, this friend of mine got in for the first time in the AX contest and he keeps telling himself he needs to withdraw because he still feels his AMV isn't up to par with the others, despite being his "best work" so far.)

Well, but being deaf is a particular case (don't say "no we're 2)
Basically, editing, compositing, all that kind of stuff is about learning and practicing so yeah anybody has unlimited potential... Though, we could compare with some lessons like some people get better mathematics than languages, I could give you that. Still, your friend and yours' cases are particular, actually, I kind of admire the fact that, despite this, you want to edit and make great vids : )
