PLEASE NOTE That I would personally really like to delete this video. Unfortunately the rules of this website won't allow me to. In short, I wouldn't recommend this video, and I'd dearly like to not be judged on it.
Edit: (Standard warning for all my AMV's) PLEASE DON'T UPLOAD ANY OF MY AMV'S TO YOUTUBE OR SIMILAR-THANKS
Okay....now I have finished this, I can sleep again! ^___^;;
Okay, to start with, I've always wanted to write a really long description for an AMV, that's why most of this is pointless stuff that you really don't need to know....^^
Well this was done with a shiny expensive new problem. One thing I hadn't expected:
Expensive Program=Even more work!
Despite all the uber new effects it comes with, there's a lot of manual work that comes with that....the movie file is covered in crosses, dashes, and zig-zags ^^;;
Looking at the receipt for the program, I can tell you that this AMV took 1 month and 11 days.....doing 5-7 hours on it. A day.
Before this I was working on an earlier version of this AMV.....which was truly terrible.....^_^
Luckily for me the people who've seen this seem...um....excitable lets say...^^;; Despite my friend who hates the song. Luckily she hasn't seen this AMV :p
Quality-This was such a huge issue. I kept saying 'There is NO WAY I'm going to do this in WMV. As you can see, this is in WMV. >_<
Shockingly, this came out at 30meg....the next one up was 120...soooo ^^;; I don't think the quality looks terrible, there's only one part that really isn't good quality wise. What can I do.
Firstly, Credit's to 'Rich SC', 'SaturnBabe', 'WierdSista', 'Saijin Princess' and Unadorned Spirit' for watching this AMV at various stages. Special Thanks to Rich SC, who made my lovely credits at the beginning of the film. So thanks alot for that!
Someone once told me (In my Movie Maker Days) To make my own effects....Didn't have a clue what they meant at the time, now I do! I made 90 effects. Having just checked that, I am horrified.
But it still stands. YOU CANNOT MAKE YOUR OWN EFFECTS ON MOVIE MAKER!!!
comments on certain bits in the AMV-
-The beginning bit....yes it is abit weird...this is because I didn't actually start making at the beginning.....I started at the image of Lilith....btw there is no scan-down of that image in the actual DVD, that was an effect....
-I hope you don't dislike the stills....I'm still not sure about them....
-I'm also sorry for the quality on the part with 3 faces on it....
-The bit with Shinji being dragged along by Misato and the part with Asuka destroying things took ages to do...they were both homemade effects.....well...the Asuka bit was more of an effect combining thing...
-The bit flashing in time with the beat, was murder to do :P
-Also horrific, the part with the cross...
-Yes there are separate animations used in this, I have the licence for them though, so it's okay! ^_^
-The flashing part (with colour) was yes....to see how many people I could get to have a fit.
-What looks like simple effects, never are :P
-Flashing in time is HARD!!!
-The part were Rei's blood colour changes with the beat wasn't my idea of a sick joke or anything.....honestly! ^^;;
Well that's my nice long description.....on after-thought:
I LOVE REVIEWS! PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE!
