    Okay. This is a remake of my first amv that I made back in April (which isn't available on this site). I've been wanting to re-create it for quite some time now, but I hadn't gotten around to it. I made a lot of improvements to the original, including better/more fitting scene selection, better timing, and some effects. Frankly, it's completely different. If you're interested in seeing the original, I have a streaming version on YouTube. But note that it is my first amv, and I put it together in one night...in WMM...enough said. ;P

    Anyway, this amv focuses around Garnet (Dagger), and all the internal struggles she goes through throughout the game. She has so many times where she doubts herself, but as time goes by, she picks herself up and finds her strength. This video is meant to be more of a character profile, rather than a romance video, but I felt it was necessary to add Zidane in there, because his influence helps her a lot in becoming a stronger person. The pace is pretty slow, and there aren't a huge number of effects...just some color tweaking, overlays, and some cutouts. Actually, there's still a few in there that I think I should have left out. The song is so beautiful, and fitting of Garnet, that I felt effects weren't really necessary to convey what I was trying to get across.

    I tried really hard to get the best quality I could for this amv. I ripped the footage directly from the game, and cleaned it up the best that I could in VirtualDub. There's one scene in there that I forgot to apply filters to...but for the most part, I think the quality looks pretty good.

    So if you're interested, please check it out, and share your thoughts on it with me. Opinions are always greatly appreciated (I always make sure to reply), even if it's just a QC. Thanks, guys. ;D

    Lyrics:

    The world seems not the same,
    Though I know nothing has changed.
    It's all my state of mind,
    I can't leave it all behind.
    I have to stand up to be stronger.

    I have to try to break free
    From the thoughts in my mind.
    Use the time that I have,
    I can't say goodbye,
    Have to make it right.
    Have to fight, cause I know
    In the end it's worthwhile,
    That the pain that I feel slowly fades away.
    It will be alright.

    I know, should realise
    Time is precious, it is worthwhile.
    Despite how I feel inside,
    Have to trust it will be all right.
    Have to stand up to be stronger.

    I have to try to break free
    From the thoughts in my mind.
    Use the time that I have,
    I can't say goodbye,
    Have to make it right.
    Have to fight, cause I know
    In the end it's worthwhile,
    That the pain that I feel slowly fades away.
    It will be alright.

    Oh, this night is too long.
    I have no strength to go on.
    No more pain, I'm floating away.
    Through the mist I see the face
    Of an angel, who calls my name.
    I remember you're the reason I have to stay.

    I have to try to break free
    From the thoughts in my mind.
    Use the time that I have,
    I can't say goodbye,
    Have to make it right.
    Have to fight, cause I know
    In the end it's worthwhile,
    That the pain that I feel slowly fades away.
    It will be alright.
