Right Click, Loop (FLCL)

Post by ShadeTheNovice » Sun Mar 21, 2021 3:17 am

So I decided to make an AMV that is intended to be looped. To do so on the YouTube link below, simply right click the video and press Loop. The looping isn't seamless, but hopefully you get the idea.
I wasn't sure if this idea would work at all so do tell me how I did, I'm always up for some feedback.

This is really neat!

I assume you've done some kind of colour correction or tint (I'm honestly not the best at detecting that kind of stuff)? The colours really stand out, which is saying something as FLCL is quite colourful anyways, so I'm impressed that you managed to improve on that.

The looping aspect is interesting. I've come across looping AMV's before, but they've mostly been on sites which auto play, like instagram for example. They are also usually only 10-20 seconds long before they loop and mainly seem to exist to fulfill certain aesthetics or ideas that the editor couldn't fill a normal length AMV with.
Your video gives me more of a groundhog day vibe, we're on a journey that these characters are perpetually stuck in. Despite all the randomness, the way the cycle repeats also makes sense.
You've also got good sync going on which matches the sounds of the song quite nicely, so it's enjoyable to watch.

Awesome job!

(And you've also taught me something new. In all my years of using YouTube I never knew there was a loop option :sweat: )

Thank you so much for the compliment! The colour correction was honestly a happy accident while I was importing the show. It looked really good though so I decided to stick with it. I do wish I can figure out what exactly I did to make the colours pop out like that, might wanna do that again for other projects.

Yeah I decided to take the idea of a looping AMV fully, making the theme of the AMV fit along with it. I'm glad that I managed to get that across.

(Also don't worry, it took me a while to figure out that you could loop like that on YouTube too :P )
