I quite agree with the no-rap suggestion, but that's mainly a personal preference issue. I can't stand that noise. But I don't see the problem with usuing a popular song repeatedly. I download a lot of vids done to my favorite songs, and I like them a whole lot! I think a good song, no matter how ov...

Lol, Kenshin's got a lot of either falling-on-head or getting-hit-on-head slapstick shots. I think Slayers has its fair share too. ~Shada~ I'd have to agree with Shada. Kenshin and Slayers contain a good number of whams. Of course, in Inuyasha, Kagome slams Inu into the ground about every other ep ...

The trouble I'm running into in the effects department is on the artistic rather then the technical end. I just watched three video's all with nearly perfect use of digital effects artisticly, one flashy, the other two more subdued. I know, technically how to do all of those effects, but placement ...

To add to my last post: this applies if you are even going to add effects at all. I don't use many myself. Having only MovieMaker at my disposal, the effects I use are usually only transitions (mainly fade), double time, and the occasional minor filter. Not all that dramatic, but it's not distractin...

Ok, so I know what that program is now. Thanks! On another note, I'd rather not shave off footage. That cuts stuff off that I'd like to keep, even if it is slightly obscured by subtitles. In some cases, I've actually had fun with the subtitles. I have one vid where I matched the song lyrics to the s...

Well put, Shada. I'd have to agree. What program a person uses doesn't matter as much as the ability and skill of the person making the AMV. Sorta like comparing the quality of art materials. An artist armed with nothing more than a mechanical pencil can produce far superior work as opposed to someo...

So basically, the rule is videos are only allowed if they contain at least some animation that was created in Japan. No exceptions. Except when there is an exception. But that is the exception. Excepting when an exception is the norm, then that exception is not an exception. Of course, that in itse...

With VirtualDub in existence, there really is -no- reason for anyone who's just a little bit serious about AMVs to have fansubs left in. It's one of the simplest processes in the world, and there's a guide for it right on this site. On the contrary, I have only ONE source for anime, and it is a fan...

. The issue's at hand are the Copy Right 's of the series. I would love to have fun with an AMV from The WinX Club, but like SMURF's they are just not allowed on this site. *rolls on floor laughing* :lol: Oh man, the idea of a Smurf music video on this site...that's too funny. :mrgreen: Even the wo...

The problem is.. If you start letting ONE type of american animation in. The others will whine because you cant have the looney toons, then someone will whine because animation was inspired by real life. That is why I said the line is difficult to draw. It is obvious that real-life video and ordina...

On another note, I will say that I don't mind at all the creation of AMVs to overused songs. If it's good, then do it! Everyone has their own ideas and would like to share (regardless of wither it is a good idea or not). If enough AMVs are done using a popular song, then theres a better chance of ev...

Beware what you say. Some of us are college students and can't afford DVDs or After Effects. I happen to have two vids to two of those songs you mentioned, and they're actually doing pretty well for fansubbed AMVs (Evanesence, Bring Me to Life for Takako from Pretear, and Bon Jovi's It's My Life fo...

I believe some people made very good points about why Teen Titans isn’t considered anime, however, I myself must disagree. TT was created using just about everything you’d find in anime such as emotion symbols (ex: tic mark and sweat drop), patterned backgrounds, freeze poses, abrupt comic chibi tra...

What happened to the Teen Titan AMVs?

My sister and I noticed that, quite abruptly, most all of the Teen Titan vids are no longer downloadable. My sister made two herself, and they were her most popular vids. What the heck is going on?
