  • Comments: This has to be the hardest I've ever worked on an AMV. I've poured well over 50hours over the course of the last week and a half on the video editor alone.

    I used the following programs to make this video:
    Corel Painter Essentials (For still images)
    Windows Movie Maker 2(for the scrolling credits)
    Video Edit Magic 4.18 (Overall editing)

    Originally, I sat down and took inventory of my music collection to see what I had to go best with each character. I then mapped out a list of all the characters and the order I wanted to put the clips up.

    Once I had that set up, I wrote a script for myself and recorded the portions I needed for the commercial.
    Then, I altered the ptich of my voice on the recordings to make it sound a little deeper.

    After that, I used my video editor to construct the audio in it's enitrety. Once completed, I saved it in .wav format and used it as the audio track for the AMV.

    Next, I looked to see what images I would have to create on my own, my technology is still very cheap and very basic, so I wanted to do the best I could using Corel Painter Essential 2 to crop and modify all of my pictures.

    At that point in time, I began to build the video from the begining using the clips I had mapped out in my idea process until I completed it.

    At one point I had to use WMM2 to create some scrolling credits since this is not a feature on Video Edit Magic 4.18.

    When I saved the file, I tried many formats including MPEG-2, but the AVI format was the only one that did not come out looking stretched and pixelated on 4:3 ratio. I saved the demensions at 680/420.

    This is honestly the first time I had a problem with my video quality, but I think it came out alright.

    I wasn't really attempting lip Sync or any spectacular effects this time, since I don't really have any.

    Hope you enjoy it!
