Being an editing competition using pre-edited sources I'd say PMVs will count under the 75% but situations like this are going to be the discretion of the judges as there is not yet a hard guideline regarding PMVs. This is the first public run so likely there will be some bumps in said road like this. But IMHO that's going to make things interesting. Make no mistake, there are ponies on this side of the fence as well.
Cecco, sweet deal!
But remember, this is a editing competition using other peoples sources so previewing before the release date can give your competitor an advantage. Also, YOINK
I personally would say since MLP isn't Japanese animation, it would depend on if the original video you are editing from was enough anime to qualify as an AMV. Considering the org say a video has to be a majority anime, that would mean the video has to be at least 50% anime. I would say even if you make the video using only MLP footage for the 75% part, but it was from videos that qualify as AMVs, then it would be fine, but if you use straight up PMVs it would not be fine. Basically, if it qualifies to be on the org, it's fair game.
That's my opinion at least...I would also say the same applies to ANY footage that isn't Japanese animated. Now the problem after that is...it then wouldn't qualify to upload to the org, lol...
