I already know how to make it better quality and full screen.
also some parts are out of sync and i now have the means to fix that.

any other advice would be appreciated!

eg. did the song fit or not. just giving u something to comment on lol


You should really dont put stuff with subbs in like at 0:16, especially at 3:51.
And just what Kr3w said you really shouldn't overlay audio from the anime over the music for its just annoying, and if you want to use the audio from the anime I would suggest only use it in the very beginning of the amv with out overlaying the music and it has to make sense.
Most of the scenes just got prolonged too much and you could do some beat sync. The part at 0:17 was kinda weird imo.
There was a few interlacing threw out your video. And some of the scenes didnt made sense.


yea about the subs. they were the credits and i couldn't really do anything about it. do u have anyway i could edit the image to get rid of the writing? and the part at :17, was it wierd cause it looked like it was paused at right at the start of that clip? what scenes were the weird scenes in it specifically? also the anime audio might make a bit more sense if you wached the show possibly.

I already know what I want to change with all my videos :3
I never tell stories with my amvs... I just use scenes i like and i think fit well. I love amvs that have a theme/msg/story to them. . Maybe it's cuz I'm never inspired by animes, I'm usually inspired by song, so I try to fit the lyrics with certain scenes or storylines in animes...sometimes it works out but other times, nay

here are two of my recent ones

Well you should really improve on the quality of your video, cause i can tell its a wmv. type format, use avi then decompress it.
Again with the anime audio. And you could've really use some beat sync, seeming as its an action type amv.

thanks. one thing. if i upload a 100mb video to youtube does it compress it to make it smaller or is everyone that is going to look at is going to download 100mb? haha
cause this would help me a lot with increasing the quality.

the first one seems pretty good. the synching is somewhat different to the way i would do it but ur method is a really good way too. and i the end clip wasn't bad but possibly could have ended with something a bit more emotional maybe. but i really had no real problem with this one at all.

and for the second one the start and end is disturbing but quite funny lol. otherwise probably the same as last time but i had no problem at all with the ending clip of the actual song.

anyway i really can't find any problems with any of them. like of course u could make better amvs but i don't see any big problems with them.

NOTE: i am not an expert but i am just saying what i think personally. lol

Count 7
Originality 8
Visual Quality 8
Audio 9
Action Sync 6
Lip Sync
Special Effects
Effort 8
Re-view-ability 7
Overall 7.5

No subs was a good point, the quality could have been better, the song was quite nice.
In the opening scene, the girl singing didnt made sense to me at all imo. The outro was a bit off. And some of the sence didn't made sense to at all to be honest. There was random some random scenes that didnt fit to the timeline and I cant tell the theme of the amv. But its not all that bad, all you need to watch out really is the opening of you amvs and outro and scene selection.

No you basically render is out as an avi file which would go around 1gb+ then you should download VirtualDub which is one of the furom topic. And in VirtualDub is where you compress your videos to Xvid or DivX.

Your amvs are better them some here but all l can tell you is that some of your scenes last to long and then tend to bore me (It happens).

Your syncing is sometimes random and l've seen that through your videos to.

Just making a thread to help people with there videos but if you can't handle criticism then l ask you to please not post.

l'll update this later l suppose.

1.) Favorites: Your favorite part of this amv, and why

2.) Problems: What you thought could improve. (no flaming, only constructive criticism)

3.) Solutions: Advice on how to fix the above problems.

4.) Opinion/Rank on scale of 1-100 (yes 100!) This will kind of be like a percentile ranking.





Alright this is kind of getting out of hand. There are too many people wanting to get advice and not as much people to give it. May I suggest an idea?

I think it would be beneficial to the group if there was only one amv at a time. So if you want advice on your amv, you must first give advice to the prior amv. So in this way we can have a nice organized chain of amv suggestions.

Ok. If this was confusing, let me demonstrate by showing:

Person 1: here's my amv: www.youtube.com..........(blah blah)

Person 2: Here's some advice for person 1's amv: (organized by Favorites, Problems, Suggestions, and Rank). Now here's my amv: www.youtube.com....(blah)

Person 3: Advice on P2's amv and here's mine: www.youtube.com........etc.

etc.......etc........

Yea, they seem to want advice for everything they make and l'm not personally up for that when l want to edit at that time.

Take your damn time in other words.
