You obviously failed to get the meaning of this song >_>" The "rock" thing was kinda original but WTF does it have to do with the song / anime?, it made no sense at all. Listen to the lyrics CLEARLY and you'll get the TRUE meaning of the song :lol: . Overall the video was just a failed effects video with an even worse concept, plus the quality was terrible :down:

Way to offer constructive criticism...

I'm of the opinion that anyone who claims to know the "true" meaning to any MSI song is full of shit, so we'll disregard that comment. The effects were fine in my opinion, just a little overdone and repetitive. Yes the video and audio quality was somewhat poor, but not as bad as you'd expect from the vast majority of Naruto videos out there.

Its a step in the right direction, you just need to refine your effects and maybe think about quality control a little more.

3/5

Yeah, 'cause MSI doing any song with an actual meaning must be bullshit right. So if I claimed to know the meaning of a song such as "Bed Of Roses" I must be full of shit huh |:



Anyway, I won't dl this simply because it's a ripoff of frost's video, which more than likely won't be as good, and I hated frost's aswell. So yeah, just wanted to throw that msi comment in there. Good luck with the crit \:

@Chrono: ..., but I´m first!

Ok let´s say it as it is: In this case you can´t just come along with this quality and ressolution. The whole video is full of effect details and the quality/ressolution mix is just too bad for this concept.

Anyway I like the concept and even had to laugh loud at "she killed my brain" part, but I really wished that I could see more, but I can´t because of the quality...
First I thought that you would come up with Rock as maincharacter something, but the story surprised me.

I can´t even say anything better to the effects than: Somebody got a Videocopilot product, right? Ok. Maybe they´re a bit cheesy, but overall I think they´re alright for such a crazy song, vid+concept combo.

Yeah I do think that the quality/ressolution is a bad choice for this case and maybe the worst point.

I think the quality issue is because of the format being an Mp4.
I was able to watch this on my psp and the quality looked alright.

The Amv itself was very random and kinda funny.

*chough*

#1 no... let´s start with #2

#2 The PSP has a smaller display and ressolution. It´s like watching DVDs on a normal TV. They will look good, but on a full HD tele it might look like shit.

#1 It´s always about how you use a codec. mp4 is a container format. I think he used the codec h.264. It´s a distribution codec and was made for such things, but it´s limited to the editor itself. If you feed the codec with shitty quality like old DivX5 fansubs or whatever you will get even worse shitty quality. So in the end it depends a lot of things only on the editor to get decent quality in the end.

@Chrono:
Goal reached. You´re sad now =P

Nice to see some constructive comments here. :) I watched the video after I read the first comment (when someone claims something is terrible you just gotta check it out right?) and of course, I think as far as editing goes, the author did a good job. It's not exactly my type of song or editing style, but I think they go along fine and even I laughed at a few parts. ^_^

Now then... MP4 has nothing to do with the quality; the video is simply encoded at too low a bitrate (a 2 minute video under 10MB..?) to achieve good quality. Most high-quality AMV on the site are well over 1500kbps. Resolution is another issue - not sure why this was encoded at 320x240 - I am assuming for upload to YouTube? Standard NTSC resolution is 720x480.

yah, what was with that guy's bullshit about Not knowing the true meaning to any MSI song?.. I fucking love MSI, but I'll be the first to tell you that about 94% of their music is about as deep as a teacup. You don't have to look much to find the "true meaning" or whatever.

I am also not downloading because I figure it'll be Frost's vid, but slightly worse.

XDD "Kill the Rock for dummies"

Well, I've got to admire the effort you put into it - and did that rock have any significance or was it a random rock?

You repeated a whole section of footage, too, at 1.34. Plus it didn't look like the rock was integrated into the footage well - it was just floating around surrealy. And it was the wrong size for some of the footage.

Overall, not bad, but there is some room for improvement. But it was a fun vid. ^^

LOL well you have to actually watch the video to understand what I meant about him not getting any meaning of the song whatsoever >_>. He was WAY off!

Dazza's post Helped me guess that he prolly poorly masked a rock into all these places.. either that or my initial guess which was that he made it about rock lee.
