  • Comments: This was my first try at using Video Game footage in an AMV, and I think I did pretty well. All the FF7/8/X vids I captured myself, and the Kingdom Hearts ones I was forced to download as no way of extracting the files could be found, so please excuse any less-than-perfect quality.

    Software used in the creation of this video: PsxMC, TMPGenc, Virtual Dub, AMVapp, Adobe Premiere, and the FFX .rar extraction program.

    Notes on song choice: It took me a long time to find a song that really fit all the games I wanted to incorporate into this video, but when I heard "Key of the Twilight" for the first time I realized how well it fit both Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy. The lyrics are as follows...

    Key of the Twilight

    Come with me in the twilight of a summer night for a while
    tell me of a story never ever told in the past
    Take me back to the land
    where my yearnings where born
    the key to open the door is in your hand
    now fly me there

    Fanatics find their heaven in never-ending storming wind
    auguries of destruction be a lullaby for rebirth
    Consolations, be there
    in my dreamland to come
    the key to open the door is in your hand
    now take me there

    I believe in fantasies invisible to me
    in the land of misery i'm searchin' for the sign
    to the door of mystery and dignity
    i'm wandering down the secret sun

    come with me in the twilight of a summer night for a while
    tell me of a story never ever told in the past
    take me back to the land
    where my yearnings were born
    the key to open the door is in your hand
    now take me there
    to the land of twilight

    Other notes: I've never had as much trouble with an AMV as I have with this one. It just seemed to create problem after problem, and took me weeks to iron out. Once I finally fixed all the avs script problems, re-ripped all the FF7 and 8 FMVs, and had to re-encode several of the Kingdom Hearts vids, the video in its entirety was completed in 7 hours. (One sleepless night, to be exact.)

    This video was shown at the AnimeBoston 2004 AMV 101 panel as an example of my work. I guess you could say that's where it premiered. ^^

    I hope you enjoy this video, please leave me an opinion telling me what you think. ^_^
