    Guides I've written:
    Preparing DVD Footage for Use in Windows Movie Maker 2
    (includes links to all necessary software, except for the rippers)
    Encoding Your AMV to MPEG for Convention Submission (with TMPGEnc)

    If for some reason you can't play one of my videos, go download and install ffdshow.

    Hopefully now I won't get any more comments from people who couldn't see the video. Mind you, I said "hopefully".

    I'm a recent graduate (May 2006) of The College of New Jersey. I was introduced to AMVs (and, pretty much, animé in general) in mid-2002, and made my first in October. Since then I've gotten a lot better.

    I'm the founding member of Aquiline Studios, which consists of me and Cyanna. No, we're not taking new members.
    Remember, wherever you see the yellow eagle and blue circle, it means "Aquiline was here"... that, or someone's ripping us off. :P

    My most popular video to date is undoubtedly the Alternate Eva Opening: Eva Bebop, but personally, I like Dueling Videos: Under Ice and My Evil Alien better.

    Random fun: I take special pride in the fact that I've made the finals at Otakon's AMV contest all seven times I've entered it so far (2003, 2004, 2005, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011).
