    Something fun and entertaining for all. This was at first intented to go into a video to follow my Actiony! video, but I decided not to finish this "part 2"... but I liked this segment too much to let colect dust on the hard drive or simply be deleted. I would have decided to just go on and complete the whole song, but there is only so much one can do with just the first volume of the series. The total time I spent making this was one weekend, Friday to Sunday. Not working on it straight, but some significant hours of the day.

    To be a part 2 to my Actiony! video, this is odvously a action video. I had fun with most of it and threw in some nifty effects and lip sync. I found FMA to be very easy to lip sync with because the mouth movements are very clear, so I didnt have to spend a whole lot of time perfecting it.
    Image mattes were a big part of the effects used in this one. The first few were simply triangles placed for each corner that appear at each beat, then finally the whole screen is visable. The sliding white lines were done the same way. I made a matte for each position of the line, then just used Image Matte [transparency / keying] on white video to get that effect. Very tedious.
    Other than that, it was mostly Brightness[and Contrast] and Raidial Blurs used. The part with the sliding bars was done with a combination of the "Clip" and "Extract" effects with key framing to get them to move like that.

    Here are the lyrics for the entire song, though, I only got as far as the first two stanzas.

    "Nothing Ever Dies" Lyrics [found at http://www.goldlyrics.com/]

    Nothing Ever Dies

    Here we are
    Under the same old sun
    All alone
    Yet somehow bound and unify

    Dust to dust
    Ashes to ashes won't take long
    The search for the harbor
    For somewhere to belong

    They say that faith is all you need
    To stay forever young
    What you sold is what you read
    Our sins can be undone

    There is a garden
    In society
    So right is wrong but wrong is right
    No one can be sure

    But still we are certain
    Of what we know is truth
    The only truth
    We're building our temples taller

    They say that faith is all you need
    To stay forever young
    What you sold is what you read
    Our sins can be undone

    How can we trust that once again
    But you still tell us lies
    And their voices will sustain
    'Cause nothing ever dies

    Love
    Love is the only truth
    Pure as the will of youth
    Until it breaks your heart

    You took me higher
    Than the mountains I have climbed
    You
    You waited all your life for me

    You
    Left me all alone behind
    But we'll meet again
    We will meet again

    All alone
    Stuck without you

    They say that faith is all you need
    To stay forever young
    What you sold is what you read
    Our sins can be undone

    How can we trust that once again
    But you still tell us lies
    And their voices will sustain
    'Cause nothing ever dies




    Thanks for reading, and I hope you ejoy the video. :)
