What it means to be young by atchang is my nominee here.

I think there is no effects in this vid (hasn´t played the games so I can´t be 100% sure) but it seems to be clean.

I went ahead and left the effects box unchecked for Everyone is Different, since all it really has are canned page transitions and two split-screens. I wouldn't consider the former to be an effect (any more than I would another transition like a cross-dissolve), but whether or not the latter is would be iffy. But, yeah, I see where you're coming from; it can be hard to draw a definitive line on what constitutes an "effect". Still, it's a decent category, as a complement to "Best Use of Visual Effects".

Anything more than a cross-dissolve from clip A to clip B, according to the definition you see when you're entering a video. That's what I use as my guideline in the VCA nominations.

Ummm, that vid's full of motion effects...
The best effects are the ones you don't notice.

Ugh! :x

Technically, I'm just picking off videos that just appeared in the filtered lists (practically any video that doesn't have the Effects score filled in).

An odd guideline, as all my videos have at least a bit of motion and perhaps a brief overlay or two, but you can't say I have many effects in them at all (excepting for the two vids with severe cases of various flying color-objects).
The Birds are using humanity in order to throw something terrifying at this green pig. And then what happens to us all later, that’s simply not important to them…

I ended up not nominating anything for this category... It's too similar to Best use of simplicity and I saw myself nominating almost the same videos for both categories.

Besides I have difficulties considering / recognizing something as an effect if I'm not the video's creator and don't know the anime. On top of that it's kinda ridiculuos in my opinion to nail it on the fact that there shouldn't be one single effect. For the rest we have the simpicity category.

So I figured the best option for me is not to nominate / vote for anything :)

There is a difference. For example, some people use effects that are simple, but are just enough to kick you away from no effects. Use of simplicity is the use of effects in a minimalistic way, rather than being no effects at all.

I know theres a diference, but I don't think its enough to warant to seperate categories for a contest as large a scale as this. Both types can compete fairly under Simpicity, wich is why I opped for that one over No Effects. Frankly I have no video in mind I would nominate under No effects that I would'nt also nominate under Best Simplicity.

I agree. Jasper-Isis and I were discussing this when the nominations first went up. I really don't see why "Best No-Effects" videos couldn't work in the "Best Simplicity" category. :shrug:
That's just my two cents :)

I agree, even if you do know the anime it's too hard to distinguish between them. What counts as an effect? What about a white/black flash? What about zoomed in footage? Speed changes?

Best simplistic video says it all.

Well, there ARE two seperate categories, so why dwell on it? One more person gets to be recognized by their peers for making an AMV that people enjoyed. Is that a problem? I don't think it is. Let's stop debating that which we cannot change (the existence of the category), and return to discussing that which is relevant (what is the definition of 'no effects' you're using when nominating? what video do you want to pimp for this category?)
