I spent the past week making an AMV, and ladies and gentlemen, we have a success. If you're new to anime and have no idea what an AMV is, hit your head off the nearest wall. And AMV is short for Anime Music Video, a production made of taking anime clips and setting them to music however the author sees fit. The process is extremely complex, and requires expensive software as well as splicing, time-matching and in some cases, reprogramming your computer's codecs.
This is my first AMV, and as the title screen would obviously suggest, it's made using random clips of .hack\\Sign. It's set to a music video-style progression, though there are some "artistic" sections of the AMV absolutely not intended to match the beat as the rest of the progression would -- which distresses me, because I feel a few people who watch this may misinterpret it. But what can I do?
A few notes. Pay attention to the beat as the video progresses.. once the drum beat is set into the song, the clip synching begins. Normally, the frames while change on the 1/1 beat, though sometimes I'll change them on the 1/2 beat, or 1/4 beat -- not to mention the synching involved with the actual onscreen action (Bear's arm saving Mimiru after falling, Tsuaska's back hitting the wall after the guard shoves him).
Downloading now. A bit big, eh? Hope it doesn't kill your bandwith dead. Edit: Mm, fairly good, although I suspect it'd help if I had seen the anime in question. -_-' What programs did you use to make it, out of curiosity?

::Chuckles:: I picked DivX compression because most people have cable/DSL now anyway, and it's more common than the other forms I wanted to use to compress it. I used Ulead Mediastudio Pro, Adobe Premiere, and Goldwave (all retail, of course) to compile it all, though most of my work was done in Ulead, which is teh r0xx0r.

I HAVE RETURN !!
For those who haven't realized, or for those who haven't seen my AIM profile, I had to remove the file because it sucked away 2 GB of bandwidth in two days. I don't know if I should make myself a medal or shoot myself, but I took it down anyway. If you want it, catch me on MSN or AIM and I'll send it over, or PortConMaine, an anime convention where I'll be showcasing it in a contest. ;D

Now, I don't mean to say I told you so... BUT I TOLD YOU SO! I'd use a different compression next time 'twere I you.
