No con... No person could be able to contain it.... :shock:

Was listening to an online radio and heard a song that's pretty well-used but I think could work nicely as a Kenshin character profile using Reflections/Seisouhen. Because as we all know, we don't have enough of those already. :roll::P,

I'm in the process of getting a Laputa video done for the contest. I was originally going to finish a X/1999 video that I've had partially in the works for ages, but... eh. I still can't get the rest of the video down onto paper, so to speak.

Here's hoping I make it in time...

I hear ya.  I need to make sure my video files are still working or if I need to order the series in.  That would suck.

I was curious if we had any Gungrave amv's in the past?  Im hoping to get one done and not use any spoilers if that's at all possible.  I've got this great idea for one.  I worked on it before but my computer died on me at school.  It just sucked!

Uhmm... I'm in the midst of trying not to drown in all my amvs. Let's see I've started about 17 but I haven't finished any.

...eventually here though I'll start finishing and getting a faster pace on things.

You could easily use a program like VirtualDub or TMPGEnc to crop the subtitles out

I worked on my amv for hours yesterday running into compression problems but sadly that's usually always the case with me.  I just have this bad vibe.

But it's turning out really well.  I'm afraid it might turn into an action peice more than a drama and concidering it's Gungrave I had to cut out alot of violent clips.

I made it PG-13 to the best of my ability so hopefully it'll work.  It's really good.

Only thing: I had to cut up major chunks of the song I was using.  But it work out ok.  I didn't want to drag people on too long with Gungrave material.  I think it's sad when amv editors think it's neccessary to just use footage tht's action heavy.  I used some elements from Brandon's past to make a real impact.  Concider than when making the amv.

Here's an idea: Convert the files to AVI files unless they already are.  But that cuts out the subtitles.  You can do this by going into Premiere.   That's what my friend did yesterday and the images were just fine.

with anal catholic parents.
I've been checking in from time to time, (staying out of the encoding questions threads for reasons of impartiality,) but I found these words quite saddening.

So, I'd like to assure anyone who reads this, that the AMV competition is open to any and all without regard to creed or ideology, and that I and the judges panel will do our best to ensure that the event is enjoyable BY ALL as well, including people who espouse or are exploring little-o orthodox religions and Big-O Orthodoxies as well.
(And even fans of The Big-O!)

I hope that the rest of the con will be as welcoming.

Next, I'd like to point to 'Trinity Blood' as an intruguing anime series for fans who have contact with Roman Catholics. The series has plenty of action, plot, and decent depth, beautifully drawn characters, (bishie!) fantastic costuming and settings, just about ZERO 'service,' chaste relationships, GREAT music, and little if anything that would offend most Roman Catholics, or most other religious I can think of off-hand. There are some 'odd' circumstances with the Papacy, but as the series takes place in the far future, on another planet, and possibly even in a parallel universe (we're talking Pope #490-something, which could place this around 3500AD, plus there's no forced connection that 'their' Rome, Florence etc = the 'real world' Rome, Florence, etc) so these divergences should not only be tolerable but might make for good conversation. (and possibly make a few new anime fans as well!)

Woah there, Geirr. That was kind of a really serious answer for I think was meant to be a slightly light-hearted comment who was talking about known experience.

If anyone had taken that comment all terrible needs to just calm down. No real harm was meant I suppose.

I understand that you posted it Geirr for extra safety measures or someone complained, but... yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah. I'm not going to go Colbert. Nu uh. No. *sits in corner*

P.S. Has anyone ever seen Tenatious D's "Lee" song done starring Rock Lee from Naruto?

Best advise would be to just look at some AMV"s you like and get ideas.  Second thing: sketch out your paneling that you want to use or just draw out roughs.  Trust me, you need a list of your shots and where to use them.  

Typing out a chart with Lyrics really helps for a better amv.  

Other than that, I would say tht using DVD's is a better way to transfer your clips.  They are clean, you don't need to defrag or reconfigure and I personally like Final Cut Pro for my editing.  Premier is easy and cheeper but I just love Final Cut Pro.  It's user friendly and not something you wanna shoot your eyes out for.  Some programs will be that way.


Enjoy and that AMV sounds hillarious.  I've heard that song, Lee.

Heh heh, I never ever did that. x_x' I just get a semi-idea in my head and listen to the song fifty billion times in a row. Probably not the best way to choose clips but hey. I just started doing that sort of thing with a trailer I'm creating though, because that has to be very precise.

It is also a good idea to get the lyrics to check you are interpeting them right. If not, it'll be slightly confusing. And then when you do find out that you've been putting clips to different meaning lyrics it's a tad disappointing *talks from experience*

You'll have to get a DVD transferer thing though in order to make them into clips that you can manipulate. There are lots of things on the internet though that you could get to do so though. You also have to keep in mind that when taking clips from DVDs it takes a lot more time and effort since you have to sift through everything (like hour long clips) If you're just making a test AMV or just making one for practice or fun, go for using clips from other things.

If you are just starting out I highly recommend going with whatever is free. Windows Movie Maker is a great program to just test out your AMV making skills and see if you really really want to do this. I don't recommend getting an expensive program if you find that you won't want to make AMVs after three monthes or so. Besides Windows Movie Maker isn't that terrible. I worked for two years on that before getting Premiere Pro, and I'm glad I did.

Hm, I have one I think.  Since I was using Sony Vegas (don't know if anyone else is using that) I was having that hardest time trying to make the text appear on the video.  It would either go to black and show the text, or not show the text at all.  I looked for some "Set to Front" option, but couldn't find any.

Finally, I realized that in order for text to appear on the video, the text bar has to be set one track above the video bar.

if you have dvd's that you need to use "VicBond007's Guide to Working with DVD Footage". they have it at animemusicvideos.org.

i never did sketches or an outline or anything either. i just listened to the song over and over and got an idea and started looking through the series for clips that fit my idea. first of all take some footage and fool around and figure out how to use the program you will be using first.

i am getting so frustrated with adobe premiere. there is almost no footage that will play when i import it anymore. and even if it does play, the sound doesn't work. a while ago i was trying to figure out why my project wouldn't open, and it took me a long time to figure out that it was because i had gotten rid of a few codecs. then, when i moved away from home, i bought a new computer and let my parents have my old one. and now, none of the projects i was working on will work on this computer. i installed the same codecs i did before, so theres basically no way for me to fix this. i made a video on my old computer of what i had done so far, but now the stupid source videos which i had already run through virtual dub and stuff, won't run in premiere so i have to run them through virtual dub all over again. i am so frustrated. i don't suppose anybody has any ideas for me?

Ok, so I got a wild hair and made an AMV recently. My first one ever and I'm kinda proud of it and would like to submit it for the contest but I've ran into one little snafu. I used windows media maker since it's the only program I currently possess and then noticed that it's in .wmv and the guidelines state it has to be in .avi or .mpeg. Is there a way to convert the file?

After the contest there'll be a thread listing off all the videos, both participants and winner. We can request to have the listing of each video to include the video and audio sources.

I'll do what I did last year: within a day or so after the deadline, I'll post a list of the the -total- number of AMV's received, and a cumulative list of all series represented. (Exception: if someone does a 'Various' and it has slices from 20 shows, I'm -not- gonna pad the list. Otherwise one entry like 'Odorikuru' would take up 25 names ... you get the picture...)

But I won't post any personally identifiable information, entry titles, etc until after the contest.

KEEP 'EM COMING !!!  :D

On a CD

If a video can be put on a floppy, it better be damn short.

It can be on any medium as long as you don't ABSOLUTELY HAVE to get it back. So even a 100MB ZIP disk would be OK.

Fun comments about 1.44MB floppy! It'd have to be either:
a) dang SHORT, or
b) somthing like 32x24 pixelated crud, or
c) compressed in some uber-codec that just about nobody has (which would limit the sharing & distribution among other fans.

A CD is probably best - and REMEMBER THE PAPER INFO SHEET!

Does anyone know if the rental computers at Kinko's (or similar a business) have burners in them? Office Despot may also offer a burning service.**

** OK, ok: room here for puns about incense or Beltaine as a 'burning service...'

*tugs on Pie Row's sleeve* I require your mass knowledge once more. Found out I can burn on my computer, but when I burned my AMV onto a CD it only plays the audio... why? And how do I get it to play both... I'm such an idoit about this... this is my first time, I am an AMV virgin ^.^

I think (at least from what I know) CD burners are still fine.  I've never used a DVD burner before.

You may be burning through Windows Media Player in which case the problem could be...

1. You have it set on Audio CD when burning
2. You have the wrong format of cd where it only has enough room for audio.

I've encountered those problems before. If you have the right format of CD you should be able to change it to HighMat or Data CD by using the right side arrow bar so it'll read 'CD Drive (D:) - Data CD'

Tell me if you don't burn through Windows Media Player...

Alright Alright...

I'll let it slide... for now. *sits in armchair and stares at rusting AMVs in the computer*

Hmm to get back on topic, I finished another AMV to add on... so I have to re-burn everything because I like things to be neat and tidy before I send them.

To obtain the footage from a DVD you have to rip it then convert it into an editable format.

Check out AD and Ermac's guide on how to rip them or you could try VicBond's guide (PDF file) instead.

I'm not 100% sure on the term myself but I'm pretty sure "ripping" a DVD means downloading footage from the DVD.

Out of curiosity, what kind of computers do you guys use to make your AMVs?

I have a Dell desktop. It's pretty decent, but I think I'm gonna need to either get an external hard drive to add to my disc space or get a whole new internal hard drive cause I recently learn my comp only has 33 Giga bytes or hard drive space O.O That sucks!!!! I need like a 120 or more.... currently after doing a huge wipe of my system and mostly putting all extrenous file on disc I still use 22 GB.... makes it hard to do anything of real potential... *sigh*

*mutters curse words* Gawd, these cds never work with me.

Why can't we just enter AMVs through online (on amv.org) like Sakura Con allows. It's so much more of a difficult hassle to send it through the mail on a cd. I had the same problem last year as well. At least with Sakura Con I can get mine in to be judged without having to worry about postal, arrival time in mail, cds being broken, programs working alright, cds working alright and so on.

Oh just various things. My video always seems to be in the wrong format with my discs no matter what.

Things that I could fix, but it would be so much easier if we could enter through online as well.

I sent off one of my amvs (the rest are still in need of reconstruction) but I don't know if the file worked with the CD because when I tried it, it works fine on Windows Media Player and PowerDVD but it's crap and is staggering on realplayer. I'm hoping it's just my computer.

I started a new video last night and somehow managed to finish it tonight, a serious trailer that I didn't think would come through but it did and that just rocks. Wacky, but it rocks.

I also plan to turn in a video I entered last year but didn't get shown. For some reason. Guy assures me that he liked it, but I smell a conspiracy afoot. An AMV conspiracy. With badgers. Badgers teaming up with the Roman Catholic church to take on Letterman and Leno in a showdown of darkness in Israel!! Totally!

This is a good time to note that there is -NO- age limit to how old an AMV is. If you have a project that fits a current category, feel free to send it in!

Most of this year's judging panel are new faces, and so I am hoping for good results. The only 'conspiracy' I would think possible would be if an entrant somehow individually and privately contacted a sizable slice of this year's gang and they all agreed, jointly or severally, to *do* something, one way or another. But, since all awards except Judges' Choice awards are based on audience voting, the only problem would be if that act was to exclude one otherwise good entry from running against of the all the others in a category, or at least the "conspirator's pick" in that category. Other than that, even if someone were to bias a majority of judges so that an entry gets ADDED, then we all rely on the audience to choose the winner they were going to choose anyway.

This is a good idea - I'd like to know if it's possible to set up a PC to retrieve files sent by FTP. If I get to do this again next year, I think it wouldn't be a problem to receive entries if they're already posted for download on www.animemusicvideos.org.

Another way people could do submit electronically would be to load AMVs onto their own webspaces, and then email me URLs. As long as I could download it without registering, logging in to anything, or accepting cookies, I think that would work, EXCEPT: (and I can see the nightmare now...) It's 4:39PM on the deadline day, and I get 25 e-mails at ONCE!!! Each of these are 85MB projects! There goes my bandwidth for half a WEEK!!! (sizzling, smoldering phone jack...)

Yes, this would be neat and there should be a way to do it while retaining internet privacy and anonymity. (I could even go to a Kinko's and d/l from there if I got good connectivity and the project wasn't too large...)

I am working on the contest OP right now, using Virtual Dub, Sony Sound Forge, and Hash Animation Master.

As indicated later - I'll be experimenting with on-line submissions and/or FTP over the next year. BUT here's a recent news story below to consider.

My problem with the Sakuracon page is that UNLESS you give up your PRIVACY, (usr_name & pw) you can't -DO- anything. Now read this:

 "Amazon.com has applied for a patent to create an online customer
database which would allegedly contain 'massive amounts of intimate
information about its millions of shoppers, including their religion,
sexual orientation, ethnicity and income.' "

http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/business/280894_amazon10.html

THIS is why (a) I never order anything on-line from Amazon, and (b) outside of my job, I avoid as 'logging in" where ever possible. Logging in means "you are being watched and tracked." I don't consider that a friendly experience.

Isn't that a bit "Big Brother" paranoia working at you there?

When you mail someone a package or something, aren't you giving away your address to whoever sees/touches the package? Sometimes that is worse than giving someone your gender. My parents work online in the book business and they get addresses from all sorts of places, if they had malicious intent they could easily store each one of those addresses, look them up on google and find out all that information.

At the same time, many retail stores need that information for their own data. Markerters need to know their customers such as what gender they are, what their income is and just who they are. When a business knows their customers more, then the better the business can be and the more knowledgable they can be when providing service. I'm not saying that some businesses don't abuse this, but there are other reasons there for this information other than 'they are going to stalk you, steal your money, and watch you as you sleep'

If everyone didn't log in, how would we identify anyone. How would we know it's actually you G? If it was just guest posting without having to log in, perhaps I could be G in my next post. After all, usernames and passwords don't exist.

Just thought some other thoughts should come up about such things.

I know that on the AMV homepage ( http://www.animemusicvideos.org/home/home.php ) they have guidebooks on how to make one.
After skimming the schedule I didn't find anything about a panel on how to make one.

I have asked staff to schedule a 2-hour block (somewheres) so we can set up a computer, projector, and even a boom-box, and we can go over basics like compression, working with video clips, sequencing to music, and lip-syncing.

At this time, I'm not sure where or when would be, though (except NOT during the AMV contest or show. THAT's a given!)

If this event does -NOT- get programmed in, AND if I can whistle up / beg / borrow/ some equpment and find an unused room, THEN I will tack up some notes (I'm sure there will be a general note-board zone somewhere) and let people know where we can all meet and pound out some of these issues - or just run some leftover AMV's ...

Hm, will you be covering anything about things that compliment that editing software, like Adobe After Effects?

Isn't that a bit "Big Brother" paranoia working at you there?
Just thought some other thoughts should come up about such things.
Good points - I've started a new thread on:
http://www.kumoricon.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=2968&sid=8aa699ced2bfaa67369dcff0b8ebb50e
regarding privacy, etc.

No conneaction to AMV's, etc.

Well, FIRST we have to find out if programming SCHEDULES it in. (No one has told me yet.)

BUT yeah, we could touch on After Effects a bit - perhaps I could keep a saved effect in a recent AMV, and we could dissect it.

I've always wanted to know how to use After Effects to do that pulsing effect; it like creates a duplicate transparent image of what is displayed and it enlarges immediately (kinda like sometimes in Naruto when Naruto goes Kyuubi, and the effect is accompanied by the sound of a heartbeat).

You can easily do that with Premiere. Copy and paste the clip onto a video track above the original, onto Video 2, then use the rubber bands on that clip to lower it's opacity and eventually reach zero opacity.

To do the zoom-in part, right-click and go to Video Options --> Motion. You'll see a small black line as a "miniature timeline" for that clip and a preview of what it's doing. Click on the right-most side of the black line so that the arrow is on the right side, then increase the zoom to whatever amount you want. 100% zoom means normal, anything bigger enlarges the image while anything less decreases.

If this doesn't make much sense, let me know and I'll make some kind of detailed guide.

Hm...well Pie, looks like I never did get to that pulsing thing.  I used Vegas, also.  Oh well, I got my AMVs done and sent in for this contest.    My AMVs aren't flashy with effects at all right now due to my limited knowledge.  I just try to make thing flow with the music as much as possible without anything extra...for now.
