    # 2007-07-08 16:53:40A great amv, unlike most all of the rest on the top 10% list. Thanks.

    I started making this amv on 30 December 2006, because I've wanted to create an amv on this song ever since I first heard it. And now, I finally did it. ^_^

    The video is based mainly on mood and lyrics sync, and of course beat sync. I separated it into four main parts + credits:

    1 - Ah! My Goddess - the song is gentle and light, so I only used fades and beautiful footage.

    2 - Hoshi No Koe/Pale Cocoon - With the beath that introduces the second part of the song, I start more action-like, but gradually calm the video down. This was the hardest part - I made 3 versions I didn't like (with AMG and Shakugan no Shana) and only that last attempt with Pale Cocoon and Hoshi no Koe satisfied me. But creating it was pure masochism, because of all the manual motion tracking involved >.<

    3 - Beyond Clouds, The Promised Place - The part has a specific tune to it, of which I made full use, letting it to lead the tempo alongside the lyrics.

    4 - Chrno Crusade - The song softens and then explodes again which results in beatsync and effects. Ends with some seconds of tight beatsync.

    5 - Credits - I took me 2 hrs to render 12 secs, after which my Pc crashed. I send it to a friend of mine with core 2 duo + 2gb ram and he managed to render 25 out of 35 secs. So it is hardcore :P Created only with AfterFX

    Rank 1 - Breathing

    feel it on my skin
    your breathing
    falling to your arms again
    spread my wings and fly
    hold my head up high
    feels like summer wind
    when you're breathing,


    everytime I close my eyes
    when the stars begin to rise
    I feel like I could fly
    you're the reason why
    when i need to have you near
    drowning in my tears
    the colors fade to grey
    you wash them all away
    morning sun
    you're the one
    deep within
    I hear you breathing
    feel it on my skin
    your breathing
    falling to your arms again

    spread my wings and fly
    hold my head up high
    feels like summer wind
    when you're breathing
    oh when you're breathing

    Conjure one - Center of the sun (Solarstones chillout remix) (from my cut)

    ...but I hear violins
    when i close my eyes
    i am at the center of the sun
    center of the sun
    and I cannot be hurt
    by anything this wicked world has done
    `cause I hear violins, i hear violins
