Title: AMV CHATTERBOX! (i.e, Say /almost/ anything we want to about AMVs & stuff!!!)
Post by: Prinz Eugen on December 12, 2008, 07:40:27 pm
Hey!

Great job to the board folks in creating this new ALL-AMV space!
Zillions of thanks!

Anyways, I thought I'd start THIS thread for random quips & one-liners about anything AMV-ness: what you're working on, tell us a nice one you just saw, ideas to try.

WHATEVER.  News from *me* next!

OK - last Wednesday I *just* finished torrenting a MONGO file from somewhere in Russian lands, with OVER 9000 512 AMVs in it! Most are 2yrs old or NEWER!

Anyways, my sweetie and I are culling them for the AMV Pre-Show and SHOW 2009...
Some real NICE ones in here... also some KLONKERS.

Most of the ones we are keeping around for a second look are 2min:45sec to 3min:40sec duration.

In about 90min we have eliminated more than 150 entries....

Some of the 4min pieces we are playing at 1.5x, and they work fine. Tempts me to manually re-encode them at 45fps...

Also we have a new 1920p flatscreen downstairs in the 'cave,' so we are seing quality (and pixel-crud) at a more discriminating level...

Five days of torrenting 17.68GB worth of anime was so freaking worth it. Getting Vegas Pro 8 is even better... Learning to use it is a feat unto itself that I hope to master long before the AMV contest deadline.

I'm thinking something terribly funny, or a fake trailer. Perhaps both.

I guess I need to look into Vegas then. I still have not began to understand the high quality end of AMV creation. I've got tons of videos I'd like to make better, but I don't think I can without starting over from scratch.

Hmm, I still want to make something with Fullmetal Alchemist, Claymore, Ninja Nonsense, Crisis Core. I have some catching up to do.

o.0 Dead thread, I'll have to revive it then ^^;;

What're everyone's ideas for this year's AMV contest? I'm thinking doing a trailer, along with another AMV if I have the time. I have a lot of catching up to do though..*thinks her AMV skills are horrid*

I recently got Sony Vegas Studio 9, the platinum pack. It doesn't look overly complicated, and there's a handy crop tool that makes it useful. I'm still trying to figure out where the track matte tool is and where I go to make the frames-per-second option to make 'em faster....(like 60fps! XD)
Title: Re: AMV CHATTERBOX! (i.e, Say /almost/ anything we want to about AMVs & stuff!!!)
Post by: Prinz Eugen on February 03, 2009, 08:15:27 pm
About 60fps: Google up "Nostromo" he has some tips on 60fps and I think he mentions a plugin for Adobe premiere....

Other than that, I have two realatively active projects in the cooker, one is a personal AMV-Hell type of thing that is so far about 2min long but I want to get it out to slightly past 4min - also adding some political satire for the current administration - and the other is a cut-down drama of the "Wreck of the Edmond Fitzgerald" using Last Exile...

Then there's the K-2009 OP to do and I am *clueless" so far as to what to throw together for *that* ...

... and I have an EVIL idea for th 2009 AMV Iron Chef contest ...

Thanks for the comment. Depending on how things go, I may be able to get each contestant more disks in each hand-out pack. More disks = more chances on the roulette wheel that there'll be something you know, or even know well.

Typically, for video sources each pack contains:
- some VOBs ripped from a commercial DVD
- some fansubs, and
- some raw footage usually from Japanese TV broadcasts

One thing I *did* look in to while arranging each pack was to try to select mixes from among several different genres in each pack, so that you wouldn't have one pack that was all dark gothic horror and another that was all space mecha battles and another that was all school-uniform romances. Instead, I listed about seven major categories and tried to throw three or four genres into each pack.

Then there's the 'surprise ingredient' or definition of a specific structure of the format.

Last year's constraint was that within each set of disks there were two particular ones, and each contestant had to use some minimum quantity of each of those two disks, but were free to use all of the material supplied in the pack in any entertaining manner he wished.

The slow but sure overhaul of my AMV for the contest is coming along nicely. I don't much like what I've just recently done, but everything else is pretty awesome. I'll prolly go back and smack it around, then delete what I've just done and leave the pretty awesome bits and continue in hopes of actually making it into the contest this year.

My only problem is that when I save it, it saves in  way that leaves afterimages that totally mess up my masking. I can't seem to find a way around this, either, while still saving in .avi format.

Guy, you really need to "hire" an assistant.
Title: Category Intros
Post by: Prinz Eugen on August 02, 2009, 09:54:39 pm
SIX done, ONE to go!

They're about 17 - 20sec long each, with a title and a kind of mini-AMV in the center to demo the category.

In no particular order:

Random Amusement: I'm re-using the one I did last year because it *still* cracks me up - Hello Kitty as the Eye of Sauron, with music taken form the 'Conan' movie OP theme.

Trailers: A long horseride pan from Millenium Actress set to the Good, Bad & the Ugly theme (E. Morricone.)

Genki: this is the one I haven't done yet.

Japanese Music: The girl-band from 'K-on' set to ep 37 Zettai Karen Children ED at 75% speed. Crunchier scratchier percussion and DEEP BASS for Mio. Composited with the classic IJN naval ensign in some parts of the background.

Action & Effects: A slice from one of my older AMVs, Honor of the Stars. The last battle of the Basroil set to the Terminator theme.

Retro: a spoof parody OP of an episode of the German WW2-era propaganda weekly called 'Die Wochenshau.' (We did the same thing in theatres at the time; here it was called Movietone News.) Title block reads 'Die Anime Wochinschau.' Music is from a panzerlied set to tank battle scenes from Valkyria Chronicles (TV.)  Nothing Nazi in it though, no symbols, and strict editing of the lyrics for zero political, racist, anti-semetic, or anti-gay content. Video is 90% color desaturated, film graininess added in AfterEffects.
A similar project to the clip I did for one of the AMV Hell projects: Victory Anime at Sea.

Tension: A slice from my 2005 Drama winner at Anime Vegas, Projekt Oktober.

That was my weekend...

Title: Re: AMV CHATTERBOX! (i.e, Say /almost/ anything we want to about AMVs & stuff!!!)
Post by: Prinz Eugen on August 03, 2009, 11:08:10 pm
I think I got enought stuff sampled for the 'Genki' intro.

D'OH: In going over the directories I noticed that in two cases I counted a submission TWICE. This is because for each of these AMVs I got a 30fps and a 60fps version. So the final tally is actually 32 AMVs for this year. I will test run the 30 vs 60 fps versions right before the contest to see how they play on the system we get. I hope we can run the higher framerates just because ....

<sparkly!>

But in any case I reviewed the show and it is going to ROCK.
Maybe not the crowning moment of COMEDY we had last year,** but the selections in Retro, Genki, Action/Effects, and Trailers will simply blow you out of the hotel on to the opposite curbside of the street...


** Does anyone remember 'Deeeeeep Huuuurrrting (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Deep%20Hurting)' from MST3K? (http://deephurting.ytmnd.com/)

Well, for Random Amusement, rather than Comedy, consider yourselves WARNED....

Title: "Genki" is Done!
Post by: Prinz Eugen on August 05, 2009, 12:46:47 pm
Anime is K-On and Seto no Hanayome,
Music is Lacuna, "Celebrate the Summer"

Now to start sampling 10-sec clips of each AMV in the final playlist,
and compile review videos. These are about 90sec to 150sec long.
Again, I make seven of these - one for each category.

One of the bigger decisions is choosing background music snippets.

When those are done, it'll be back to working the contest OP.
Then my last action item will be burning music and video disks
for the Iron Chef packs. (6 - 8 of these.)

I have two possible ideas for the 'secret ingredient...'

And last, on the OUTSIDE CHANCE that I have enough time ...
there could be a re-run of one of the "Sounds Easy but Actually HARDEST"
QUIZ EVENTS ever held at Kumoricon... (anyone remember it?)
Title: Progress this weekend.

About half-way through making the review clips.
Printed and ordered the AMV admission ticket / ballots.

This time rather than putting ballots on chairs as set-up, your admission ticket IS your ballot.

Will you be doing perfered seating for people who entered an AMV to the contest?
Title: Re: VIP Seating - YES!
Post by: Prinz Eugen on August 18, 2009, 06:27:48 am
YES.

Tickets will be available at the Info Desk  for regular admission,
I HATE LINES. (This is *not* AX.)
So I will be telling security to let people in as soon as possible anyways.

I also printed around 150 in a BRIGHT color for 'VIP Seating' and we will block out a rectangle of front and center sets for AMV editors, convention GoHs and their friends.

I will hand over about half of the VIP tickets to Programming at the next con staff meeting, but also have a bunch with me. Editors can pick these up at the Iron Chef check-in (Saturday Morning.)

I am also thinking of doing a Friday night Hang-out with Munchies meeting like we did last year. For those who showed up it was fun to get a chance to meet other editors, talk about our next projects. ( Mine: A game trailer - Blazing Angels to Strike Witches.)

I will let people know in THIS THREAD and a few other places on the forum where and when the pre-convention AMV Editors Hang Out will be.

Hey there, the 2009 Contest hasn't been added to animemusicvideos.org yet and I was sort of hoping to add the tag to my video... I would set it up myself but it looks like if I do it'll consider me the "administrator" which of course I am not.

Yay again! I submitted for approval my video and I watched yours. I'm not sure if it was my computer (I think it was) but occasionally the lip-syncing was a little off. Otherwise I loved the idea and all the titles and bumpers were just priceless. (Am I right to assume that the X for "Not real anime" stopping on Transformers was a deliberate jab at TCL? XD)

BUT let's just say we all have our OPINIONS about anime, and get to have fun with it now and again... !
I had originally started with a 5th character to 'X' on: Samurai Jack. But he looked like a white blob and he went away too fast. I also added SFX there because the original trailer was silent, and it felt kinda dead.

PS: I cannot find the 'confirm' zone on www.a-m-v.org for the 2009 Contest, and I cannot see your video (or anyone else's who wants participation confirmed. The database is still messed up, and I cannot do anything more about it. Regrets...

who has a lot of great ideas for AMV's.. but also wants the tools to do some of
the perfectionist stuff? Is there a good semi-easy to train on movie-editor out
there that you prefer? I don't think I am really willing to pay 600 bucks for a
software I'll only use for AMV's but... is there something economical I could buy

Video editing software is notoriously expensive and hard to learn how to use (as a side note it literally requires an at least mid-line computer, if you don't have one save up until you can buy one). I would say 99% of "not-really-bad" AMVs are made with either Sony Vegas or some version of Adobe Premiere. I personally have only ever used Premiere but when I hear them compared the consensus seems to be that Vegas is a little easier to use but you can do a lot more with Premiere. I would recommend looking around on the animemusicvideo.org boards and deciding which sounds best for you. I would also recommend /against/ investing in a "training program" as the skills you learn in any video editor seem to only carry over into other versions of the same program (even then there is surprisingly little carry over between things like Premiere CS3 and CS4) and it would be extremely frustrating to later have to relearn the basics. As for the actual obtaining of the program, I totally know your difficulties. Most people, including myself, who do not have the money to buy a copy themselves instead find a someone they can borrow a copy from or a method of otherwise acquiring it for free. Touching on the second of those options, that isn't just a euphemism for "pirate", I know that many colleges offer some sort of "video editing" class available as an elective, which either comes with a program as part of the cost of the class, or offer it at the very reduced college price. Although that is of course mostly applicable to college students, I imagine it might actually be cost-effective for some young adults as well, as you could theoretically just take that class at a community college.

I hope that was helpful, if you have more questions feel free to ask them here or PM me directly; I know from first-hand experience how difficult it can be to break into the AMV crowd but I seem to be doing reasonably well for myself. "Somanyturtles" also is in a similar position and, based on the little I've interacted with him, seems to be a really cool guy, you might want to try PMing him as well. Best of luck!

Noice? As in a cross between nice and voice? Like nice voice? xD Just kidding~

I have Adobe Premier Elements, which I learned the hard way utterly fails for the hundred I paid for it. I can't use my footage or my audio without crazily converting the fps on the video, etc. Because it won't let me enter in what fps my source is and stuff, being only Elements. Epic Fail... I don't want to return to WMM! T.T

I might be getting Sony Vegas for Christmas, though, so that's good. Maybe I'll get Adobe CS4 once I get a job~

Also, can't wait to see what changes are made to the contest this year; I've got a bundle of ideas... actually, I'm in the middle of gathering and cleaning the footage for one of them. I want to start early so I don't run out of time like last year... oh well, at least the one I submitted got in! xD

Fragile, the FMA AMV in Japanese Music. The song was Glass Skin by Dir en Grey

EDIT

This year I've got a bunch planned for Kumo and Saku; mostly for Kumo, depends on how many I get done how fast.

Oh yes, I remember that one... and I remember being glad I'd finished FMA before the convention because of it ;D

So umm... any news on this year's contest rules? I hate to be pushy but I start Winter Break as of tonight and I want to get working on this year's submissions.

Yeah; there were pretty major spoilers in that video. I should've put in a disclaimer. xD

I concur on the rules thing; I'm just trying to figure out where one of my discs is before I can start on one of the videos; the rest I've got the footage for any everything. I wanna get started, but don't want to make a video then have it be not eligible or something.

Hey, gang - I'm still here but have gotten slammed with mundane work.
(Beats not working, but sometimes - like even this weekend,I had to
do some catch-up e-cruft on a Saturday.)

ANYWAYS.

I am hoping to get the final "hey guys whaddaya think" edited next weekend
the last Sunday of Advent children and then get the FINAL, ready-to-rock
version up around New Years.

Please look for one or more  new forthcoming rules topics.

EDIT: Here's one: http://www.kumoricon.org/forums/index.php?topic=12044.0

I will read the comments and ideas, then make my best guesses and interpolations.

The rules page URL will be:

I just added a bunch of old AMVs of mine on my YouTube account after re-watching them for the first time in years. I had forgotten how much I really liked some of them; brought back some good memories of making them too. :)

It also reminded me to remake one that's been on the back-burner since making it in 2003.

Yay! This is the first year my BF and I are submitting an AMV. It's actually the fourth video between the two of us, but two of them need some polishing before submision and one doesn't count 'cause it was Invader Zim (not Anime)

It's a Final Fantasy IX video (no title yet but it's 99.9% ready for the con) that would be in the drama category if there was one *sigh*

I did the ripping and he did all the real work (with me as a consultant). It was his first time editing but it turned out AWESOME. I'm so proud! =^.^=
