    This is my sixth AMV using Premiere and Photoshop

    I think you'll find this is more than just your average FFX video. There's a lot of precise timing, very beautiful editing, and multitudes of emotion in this AMV. Not to mention a few neat special effects!

    ------------------VIDEO SUMMARY------------------
    This video is about the starcrossed love of Yuna and Tidus, about the struggles they overcame, and about their inevitable separation. It's funny how lightly our society treats video games, when in fact, some of the best stories ever told in our generation are those of games like Final Fantasy X.

    A lot of personal emotion went into this video. I fell deeply in love with a girl who moved far away... I don't know it was a mistake, but I do know my feelings still painfully burn in my heart... this video was built in the midst of that confusion, heartbreak and sorrow.

    This is all very fitting, given the plot of FFX. This video is all about the love story of Yuna and Tidus, which cannot last and must end with the story of FFX. Tidus dies, and leaves Yuna in the final chapter. You'll see her painful but bittersweet memories in the final moments of the video. These are the emotions I tried hardest to capture.

    Probably the most important part of this video, the sync really brings it all together. You’ll notice the images are on time with the beats throughout the video, and the transitions are also nicely planned too.
    You’ll notice the words are also well synched up! I tried to match the lyrics to the scenes on screen without being cheesy. It think it works very well! (Lyrics below)

    There's a good deal of special effects, but I kept them subtle (outside of the cropping). Here are a couple you might want to take a look for:
    -:31 some pretty heavy work on this eye!
    -1:59, notice the shadow of Yuna on the backdrop. She is doing her sending dance, and in the foreground are the Kilika villagers who will soon die and be sent to the afterlife...
    -2:20 zoom effects, a lot like this through out

    All source files were high res HuffYuv, any quality loss as all probobaly comes from the converstion.
    -Just keep in mind, there's not all that much FFX footage to use, and I used just about all of it!

    Oh last but now least, thank you everyone who helped me out of the forums. Namely; Madbunny, Zarxrax, Gepetto, x_rex30. And also the people who tested the video for me Nejis-Eyes, InGoW, Cornwigglem, kisanzi, MaBelle

    ENJOY! Write me an op, I always respond :)

    I know there's something in the wake of your smile.
    I get emotion from the look in your eyes, yea.
    You've built a love but that love falls apart.
    Your little piece of heaven turns too dark.

    Listen to your heart
    When he's calling for you.
    Listen to your heart
    There's nothing else you can do.
    I don't know where youre going
    And I don't know why,
    But listen to your heart
    Before you tell him goodbye.

    Sometimes you wonder if this fight is worthwhile.
    The precious moments are all lost in the tide, yea.
    They're swept away and nothing is what is seems,
    The feeling of belonging to your dreams.
