[AKROSS Con 2012] Aevum

This video has Fate/Zero spoilers so you should really watch F/Z first before watching this. (Trust me, Fate/Zero is so awesome you will not regret watching it!)

I wanted to try something different and thought dubstep would be a good idea but this was just horrible to edit. I actually started this project in July for NDK but I kept losing motivation to edit especially since the initial betas were absolutely terrible to watch. (As if it's not obvious enough I lost interest before midway.) So I'd like to say a huge thank you to Kain for encouraging me to finish it or it would have gone into the dump pile for sure. And also a huge thank you to all my beta testers for providing such helpful feedback! ^^
Spoiler :
I really need to work more on transitions....:uhoh:

Enjoy! :mrgreen:

I love your sync and scene selection <3 . Very nice quality and a very decent video overall. But it kinda lacks that dubstepish impact it could have IMO. Probably if you were more creative with transitions it could be better. Still, pretty decent, liked it :up: And it has a pretty high review ability, I must admit xD

What a nice title you found for this :up:

You already know that I think it's pretty good. I'm loving all the coloring and the effects you put here. But the sync simply doesn't keep up with the music during the wobbly parts. I'm thinking this track is just begging for crazily overdone, perfectly timed sync and this video didn't quite deliver that. I just keep getting distracted by the million beats and sounds you missed. But I don't blame you since that would have taken an incredible amount of work. Besides not everyone is into that.

The place in the finals was definitely well deserved. No reason for you to dislike your own video here :D

Great title! I like how this turned out. The coloring, as others have mentioned, is quite nice and really adds to the atmosphere. I kinda agree that the sync could have been more... intense (more stuff like the part at 2:34-2:35). Regardless, the scene selection is ace and the ending is moving. :up:

I enjoyed this, and thought you did really well with it. The song started out really good, but when it picks up it just didn't hold up. I can imagine syncing to it must have been a nightmare. I don't see anything wrong with your editing, but didn't really like the song all that much.
I still think this is one of the better action amv's, so good luck. Wish you all the best!

I don't think she used that wall, but just figured I'll link it since it's the same image.

Very nice, May.
At first I was like "wait, isn't it kinda slow?" And then suddenly wild dubstep appears. :awesome:

Haha thanks, and I used the scan here: http://gallery.minitokyo.net/view/580608. Just cropped off the text, added filters etc.

Yeah I had a look at a lot of dubstep AMVs before this and the video is nothing like them. xD I didn't want to twitch and blur everything although I know I definitely could have did better transitions-wise. :\ But I'm just so lazy. T__T Thanks for watching though! ^^

Yeah me neither, this song is like one of the few I actually can stand. xD Thanks Cecco! ^^

Oh I'm really glad you approve of the title. You don't know how long it took me to think of something else after you said The Clockmaker sounded kinda silly. xD And yeah I'm too inexperienced and lazy to do that much sync. I don't actually like rewatching this AMV to be honest, but thanks! :) Good job on your Chihayafuru AMV btw. ;D

Thanks Ryan! :D I got lazy after a while and just wanted this project done and away. xD

Thank you! :D And yeah that was the worst part, I just didn't know what to do with the sync since I've never edited dubstep before. I was on the verge of giving up so many times. :sweat:

Pfft I'm nice, I don't do violence. :P The start kinda works then it kinda doesn't hold up. xD But Happy (late) New Year to you too! ^^

Awww yeah. I dug it. I agree with Ryan's assessment but the constant ticking rhythms and pacing of the song would kinda be a nightmare to keep up with if you synced all da things. :P

Haha it was enough of a nightmare to try and sync the dubstep parts already! xD

It's probably not so bad if you have 0 knowledge of the Fate series but if you've seen a few episodes then uhh yeah, it's kind of a bad spoiler, especially the ending. >__> I hope you enjoyed it though! (And now that you've watched it, you MUST go see Fate/Zero. :twisted: )

I miss soigneusement more synchronization, personally there were scenes that have a little work, the music you asked for more, something that to my lacking much in your video and now watching your video concept... the concept is not reflected much, only to see battles and more battles, and it is no bother but I personally give a regular category, is nothing out of the ordinary.
