[Crowd] - "Hello, Chris!"
I started watching anime way back with Robotech and Voltron in the 80's. After a long hiatus, I found Technoman on UPN and the flame was rekindled. I have never looked back.
AMVs are a different story. My sad, slow dial-up would not allow me any real on-line connection until I got to college (Ohio State, for any who are wondering). Floating around mIRC and CuteFTP, I discovered this wonderful artform known as 'AMV'. I downloaded dozens. Then, I found dozens more. Every once in a while, I would think how cool it would be to make my own. However, I was still preoccupied with my new anime to worry about setting my own music to them.
Fast forward... three years later, I am in the Army. I get horribly injured,and find myself with time on my hands. I dig through some old CDs and find my AMVs! The bumper for one of them has AnimeMusicVideos.org listed. I resolve to visit this site.
Fast forward again... I am the proud owner of AMVapp and Adobe Premiere 6.5. I square my shoulders and prepare to enter this brave new world of anime music videos.
My rig is a home built set-up:
1.5 GB DDR RAM
40x CD-R/W / DVD-ROM
30 GB main hard drive
90 GB secondary hard drive
My software is:
Adobe Premiere 6.5
Adobe After Effects 4.0
Adobe Photoshop 5.0
Everything in AMVapp v2
Oh yeah... I have a hard copy of ErMaC and AD's Guide to Everything Audio and Video. It is perfect for finding answers and useful scripts. Thanks, guys!
*** For anyone who is wondering, and does not speak japanese... 'Saishu Heiki' translates to 'Ultimate Weapon'***
