    A tribute amv to Tsuzuki of Yami no Matsuei, to the song "Iris" by the Goo Goo Dolls.

    I know -very- little on this series, my sister downloaded it to my pc and I've only seen a few episodes... so don't annoy me if i've got something wrong in this amv, please? ^^"

    --- Gaining footage

    I had to use fansubs for this video. But thanks to the subtitle removing guide on amvs.org, it turned out okay... no subtitles in sight, but a quite short screen x_x'.

    So don't complain about the quality, it's not my fault. But hey, it's better quality than if I'd have made it with Windows Media Maker.

    --- History

    The idea for this amv was sparked by an amv called "The Blossom's Lament", especially the song. I watched it and watched it, until I couldn't stop crying, I needed the song for an amv. I'd been talking to my friend LunaYuy on msn the night before, and she'd been talking about Yami no Matsuei ... and naturally, I had it on my mind.

    When I woke at 6:30am (insomnia x_x) the next day, I was still thinking of the song. I sat on my computer, messed around on forums for a while, and then started to watch the amv once again. It striked me; the song was perfect for Tsuzuki. Don't understand me? Read below.

    --- The Lyrics

    And I'd give up forever to touch you
    'Cause I know that you feel me somehow
    You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be
    And I don't want to go home right now

    And all I can taste is this moment;
    And all I can breathe is your life.
    And sooner or later its over
    I just don't want to miss you tonight

    And I don't want the world to see me
    'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
    When everything's made to be broken,
    I just want you to know who I am

    And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming
    Or the moment of truth in your lies
    When everything feels like the movies
    Yeah, you bleed just to know you're alive

    And I don't want the world to see me
    'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
    When everything's made to be broken,
    I just want you to know who I am

    -Instrumental Break-

    And I don't want the world to see me
    'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
    When everything's made to be broken,
    I just want you to know who I am

    And I don't want the world to see me
    'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
    When everything's made to be broken,
    I just want you to know who I am

    I just want you to know who I am
    I just want you to know who I am
    I just want you to know who I am

    ---

    The song was amazing. Lines were highly matching to Tsuzuki's life, in my idea, anyway. I feel that Tsuzuki is afraid of being alone in his life. And the series can back me up. The song accents the series beautifully, saying exactly what I'd picture to be in Tsuzuki's mind in every way possible.

    Read through the lyrics, and if you've any idea of Tsuzuki's life and leadings, you'll agree with me.

    --- Genre

    This amv is definately a serious, dramatical video. The tone of the song is dramatical, anyway... so what do you expect... and along with the series, it's a depressing series in itself.

    --- Programs I used

    Adobe Premiere ~ the sign is right... premiere hates me. I couldn't figure this out at all. So don't ask me for help in this program T_T... I need it a LOT more than you people do. Used to make the amv, and to use the music as a base for a re-make of it.
    VirtualDub 1.4d ~ To remove the subtitles (thank you, removing subtitles guide!) and to add the music (to shrink file sizes)
    Winamp 2.0 ~ To preview the amv, and see it was all in order

    --- Other Notes

    'Every Heero Must Die' said - "This is probably the most dramatic and heartbreaking video I'll ever make, so please, if you have the time, check it out... especially for Heero Yuy fans. I hope everyone likes it, and don't forget to leave a few reviews! ^_^ "

    Well, that's been overriten. I love this one. Dunno why because I made a mess of the programming. I also couldn't find out how the hell you fade files into each other, meaning why its made up of clips that cut into themselves.
    On a better point, I found out how to fade files into each other in VirtualDub. However, I found this out AFTER I'd made the amv.... damn.

    --- Extra Information

    While making this amv, it opened my eyes to the world of oppertunity within Premiere, and the amazing effects it had. However, I still couldn't find out how to use them... and with a mere 4 days (12th August) until it expired, I doubt I ever will X_x.

    About the file size -- I dunno what happened. Premiere made it big. But who cares. If ya like it, keep it... but if ya don't, go ahead and delete it.

    --- The Pain

    The day I completed this video was a long, hard day. How? Well... let's just say "Blaster". Yes, my pc caught the blaster virus, and due to the constant resetting, my pc generally gave up... or in other words, stopped itself from starting...

    Leading onto the "The Pain" title. I almost screamed. I lost the whole amv, apart from about 2 minutes of it, which I sent a friend before I'd got the virus. When I'd gave up trying to get it to start, I reformatted my pc, leading to more pain, as I'd lost every amv I'd ever made, including two others I had in progress; "Evangelion's Rain" and "One in a Million". But the worst was this amv. Most definately. I'd just got used to premiere, finished it off, and was reasonably proud.

    But then I realised; I could do a complete re-make. My friend had just got a copy of Adobe Premiere 6.5, and so, I asked if I could borrow the program to try and do a re-make of my newest amv. They agreed, so, my work started all over again.

    The hardest part was re-gaining footage. It's awfully hard to try and get footage from KaZaA due to all the users. But I succeeded. Even though about 30% of this video is completely different compared to the original, it's the better of the two, and I'm sticking to it.

    --- Thanks!

    Hope you enjoy, and leave some reviews! ^_^ Keep checking back for more updates, and information on upcoming amvs!
