Good for final! :up: What I meant about the zoom was make it a really long zoom stretching from 0:16-0:18 like a gradual one if that makes sense. :sweat: But to be honest, now that your crossfade is longer I don't think you have to add the zoom anymore so I'd go for sending the final. :3 Btw, just make sure you crop the edges a little before sending since there's some funny looking borders on the left and right.

Also, Aimo...loved your beta...except the beginning is so bright, I can barely see the character....maybe tone the brightness down?

Damn that stupid keyframe! What are you doing in the wrong place?! D: Sorry I will fix that quickly just now. XD That scene originally was pretty bright to start with, though I'll try and manually tone it down a bit more so it looks less blinding.


Ohhh that zoom! That is actually part of the footage. It zooms out as she starts to brighten up. I was confused by that but ok then! I won't bother changing it now~ And sure, I'll get that fixed up. I'll resend my beta to you later Hamstar. Though I could just put it in dropbox now XD

And I agree with Kaze. Try to tone down on the brightness in the beginning. I can barely see Amu-chan. And another bit of criticism but it could easily be overlooked. Are you able to remove the lip flap on the ending clip? It is a bit distracting for me. If you can't no worries. I'm just a stickler for lip flap removal XD

Yup no problem. I'll remove it now.

And Hamster, you want the final formats to be in mp4 right?

(Hamstar.... :sweat: ) But Mp4 or mov work fine for me as I can see. If I have any problems I'd let people know.

2 things technically speaking. 1) Your aspect ratio is horribly off on the scenes where there were black borders. 2) Watermarks? ohnononononononono.

If you'll tell me the specific scenes you need, I will personally upload you better quality footage in MP4 format (from my dvds) that you can convert into lossy AVIs for editing that are already made to the specifications to this project.

:10-:14 - Doesn't feel very natural to the footage. I'd replace the scenes here.

Moreover, I'd recommend focusing on just one of the girls. Because otherwise, I feel like you're lacking focus in the AMV and it feels just a bit scattered. I'd go with Madoka, since she seems to have the most appropriate footage for it.

Ahh blast ,should have gone with my gut on the aspect ratio.... i knew it was off (Apologies)

I mentioned the watermarks earlier though

I like it, but one thing that stuck out to me, besides the logo...was that this MEP was meant to focus on just one character and you focused on 3 of them. I can see the song fitting Madoka very well, especially with the final episode but I don't see it fitting Sayaka and Mami too well. If you were to focus on Madoka I think your part would look so much more amazing. Editing wise it looks great! Also, can't remember if it was from the anime or not, but the AR at 0:14 looks off. Besides that great work!

Mami Yellow
Sayaka Blue
Madoka Pink

and Rainbow combo of all 3 (And thanks ^^)

Taking another crack at it
