Battle counter 002. Creator name: HAX. Video: Teenage Cowboy Bebop Turtles. (or TCBT for short)
This was a fun one to make. The hardest part was actually getting the footage - numerous attempts only proved to have interlacing problems with the footage - it's still not perfect, but the best I could get it. This one is another unique AMT (I differ from music videos as AMVs & music trailers as AMTs, but I won't go into that). To my recollection, I use clips from every episode except 13.
Some specific notes follow.
- All custom made fade ins/outs would have still been done painstakingly by saving the image sequence as bitmaps, opening them in GIMP, putting them all as layers into one image, take the next scene and slowly change the transparencies to make the blend. However, there weren't any (if you don't get the joke, look at "The Fight Must Go On".
0:05 - 0:07 - This was done to mimic the old opening of going from the top of the buildings to the manhole cover
0:15 - 0:16 - I believe I got the concept for this idea from a TMNT video game
0:16 - 0:17 - Title Cards following the Bebop Opening
0:17 - 0:22 - My original plan was to put Julia driving her car in here, to play the role of April O'Neil, but it never materialized.
0:24 - 0:27 - Pods = Shells, the green should be obvious... get it? Ha ha ha ha.....I need a better sense of humor
0:29 - 0:33 - Probably one of my favorite sequences in the vid - had it planned form the beginning
0:37 - At this point I realized I needed more Ed/less Spike
1:15 - At this point I goofed and encoded my main edited video & backup degrading the video quality slightly. Other than start over, there was nothing I could do, so I kept going.
end - My original plan was to have a card stating the episode title "The Turtles vs. Casey Jones" who would of course been played by Laughing Bull, but I decided against it.
Please leave comments, I really appreciate them
I've had several comments in my quick comment box that the video has not been playing. You should have XviD installed to play it. If you are having trouble, email me at Heavyarmsx_wpi@yahoo.com and I will try rencoding it for you or help you get the right codec
