    Due to some deinterlacing issues, the download won't be availible until they are
    resolved (motion + deinterlace = enemy?)

    Quick Description: An interesting ride through Rayearth dvd 5.
    Bouncy Lively AMV

    Story behind the video:

    I was recently given the Rayearth 5 dvd...
    by accident. My friend returned a couple of my dvds and this
    one was in the bag. (someone out there is missing a rayearth 5 now!)

    So ... being the insane individual that I am... I thought... hmm I
    should make an amv from an anime I have never seen, and wouldn't
    have any clue what the story is or what any of the spoilers are. So I
    ripped the dvd and cut a pile of clips and decided to go with the
    Boogie Nights cd to supply the audio. I must admit I was impressed
    with the amount of very interesting/eye catching footage. These four
    episodes were loaded with good clips. Although... I dunno if they are
    spoilers... haha I kind of assume they are as I saw there were a few
    surprises as I slid through the footage. I still have not watched the
    DVD... who needs dialogue? :P Though since I looked up the disc ... it
    is the final one of the season... so uhm... it is fairly likely that
    this video has some spoilers.

    Video content notes:
    1 - This video is dedicated to my love of the Rayearth series...
    whatever it's about... hehe.

    2 - There is a section later in the video that has much slower editing
    etc... this of course was intentional as the pace of the song allowed
    me to use some of the slower clips that are wonderfully animated.

    3 - I opted to end the video without syncing the final set of drums...
    it just didn't seem to fit well with the slow down I was going for. I
    think it works out fine.

    4 - I think when it comes down to it... this video is meant to be pure
    fun. I had a blast making it and coming up with weird things... the
    strange thing is that although it's flashy and bouncy... it does kind
    of follow a story... even in the end of the video... :P Most of the
    big spoilers are missing (or so I think) but I think it's still kind
    of obvious... "gee what's gonna happen next??"

    5 - The intro was quickly put together... using a song that isn't on
    the boogie nights soundtrack... Boogie Nights by Heatwave.

    6 - Sorry there is no actual dancing in the video... :P Just the little puffball
    jumping on occasion. =)

    Technical notes:
    1 - Fun with motion!

    2 - Fun with bouncing bunny thing on a green background! Thanks to
    premiere's RGB difference... since green screen doesn't do so well.

    3 - Fun with invert... and strobing etc etc.

    4 - There was probably something new that I learned while making this

    5 - So here's the update for #4... I MUST remember to deinterlace the footage
    before using motion within premiere... otherwise there is no chance that a
    deinterlace process will work correctly... always learning something new! :P

    6 - I went with a slightly lower vbr rate with this video... I am trying to cut back
    on the huge video sizes haha... I may experiment with a xvid/divx encode... if
    it doesn't destroy my counter like it has in the past...

    7 - I found the quality of the DVD to be kind of lacking... but it is an older anime,
    so it's no huge shock.

    ... if I think of anything else I will add it ...

    Enjoy the Video! =)
