Hi Emily, welcome to the Org.

I've been editing for twenty years and I still struggle to make decent AMVs without extra video effects. The important questions, however, would seem to be: are you having fun and are you interested in improving? If you answered yes, you're in the right hobby and in the right place.

As to uploading, well... we still use an old method called FTP. It hasn't aged well in comparison to modern-day "drag and drop" uploading experiences like you've largely grown up with and so it might seem daunting at first. It actually isn't that hard once you do it. Start here. Then go here. And if you get lost, there's an entire guide here. Eventually we hope to implement a very intuitive drag and drop upload method ourselves.

I'm also a girl. Many of the most active editors are and have been. Compared to the perception of other technical hobbies, I think we've done a pretty good job of being gender balanced. That doesn't mean this was always true, but it generally is now.
I hit a wall imediatly, my amv after exporting was at 510mb so ofc I compressed the video and I got it at a nice 183 mb without losing too much quality but now when I look at the Ftp uploading thing it says max 150mb... any ideas on what I can do?

Here is the link to the Site FAQ. Hopefully that will answer most of your questions viewtopic.php?f=15&t=125099

And here is the specifc FAQ question about uploading videos viewtopic.php?p=1546652#p1546652

To catalog a video, go to the “Enter New Video” page located in the “Editors” dropdown menu located on the left side column of the main site. Once you follow the steps listed on the page, and enter all the required information, you will then be able to “request upload permission” by going the the “Upload A Video” page that's also located in the “Editors” dropdown menu. Once you do this, you will have the option to either use the site's web uploader or to upload your video through a FTP client with the information that will be displayed after you request upload permission.

Information specifically on how to use the web uploader can be found here.
Instructions on how to upload videos using a FTP client can be found here.

You're only late in the sense that there has been a lot of history before you showed up, Tyler. But that's no matter.

I started editing at your age, and that was... well, a very long time ago. But I'm also a JHS teacher (7th, 8th, 9th) so sometimes it doesn't feel like all that long ago at all. I have a running joke that I turn 15 every year, forever.

We're glad to have you.

Hello there :) !
I'm Lylaaz, this is my first post here.
I joined this site in hopes of receiving better feedback of the AMVs i have made and to also give my opinions/suggestions of other's people's AMVs.
I hope i joined the right community for it? :)

Other than that, i have watched anime for about 9 years now, and my oldest AMV is 8 years old (with movie maker when i was 15, lmao), yet i have made some with very long year gaps and still self thought and i don't know much about effects. But i love to find right scenes for the lyrics, i think that's also what makes whatever video a lot lot better. Sadly i have not received much feedback so that's also the reason why i have not made many AMV. So this site is kind of ly last attempt to find any community at all to discuss AMV and etc..

Nice to meet you!

You can create entries for your old videos here and if you want to upload any of them, you can even do that here afterwards, if you want.

Do you have a YouTube channel? What are your favorite anime series or movies?

Hi! Thank you for the info and reply!
Yes, i have a youtube channel, i guess i'll share my most recent video on this forum soon. :)
I have made videos of Durarara, Attack on titan, Nagi no Asukara and Hero Academia. But those are not my only favourites. It's just that these series have shared some interesting themes and my free time :D

Hi everyone, I'm Yak_NN, 21, and I've got a ton of ideas for AMVs yet don't have the know-how needed to make them. It has been bugging me for over a year, but today, I've done a quick google search because I was tired of dreaming about having hobbies and wanted to have them for real. And here I am!
My main interests are military related anime, I've watched and enjoyed very different things as well (Madoka Magica, Steins;Gate, Amaama to Inazuma, Hanasaku Iroha...) but the AMV ideas I have involve military stuff, be it moe shows like Girls und Panzer or serious ones like Senjou no Valkyria, coupled with either rock/metal songs about military history (not only Sabaton) or Red Army Choirs stuff.
So, I'm now here with the goal to learn from you and join your ranks for real as soon as I can!

Have a nice day!

Welcome to the site. Have you seen "Girls Last Tour"? It's not quite a military anime, but it does have some military undertones and themes and also moe. Even though it's not primarily military you could probably use scenes from it to create a military themed AMV.

Looking forward to seeing your AMVs.

I am a huge fan of Girls Last Tour, it was a contender for my best series of 2017. I also liked Hanasaku Iroha when it came out.

Welcome the Org. I've been editing for as long as you've been alive, or very close to it, and AMVs are probably more of a hobby for me than anime is these days. I'd say of all of the hobbies I have pursued over the years, AMVs (and the Org specifically) as a whole is probably the longest lasting of any of them. There are few things I started doing as a teenager I am still active in today, and probably none are older than AMVs. It's easier than ever to get started now, so if I could figure out how to do it at 14 in 1998, I am sure you can manage it at 21 in 2018!
