thx 4 feedback. I was thinking flashbacks might be nicer too have only checked one of the AMVs so far, I'm in a bit of a rush... "from the ashes" is nice though. haven't seen Alchemist yet so I can't say how well it tells the story but certainly skillfully done XD
hey thanks don't worry this is exactly the kind of feedback I wanted. I mean, I started to play around with vegas about three weeks ago...I'm still in the proccess of learning some of the more basic stuff.
I want to stick with the song in this case because I think it fits the following fight with the bandit nicely (and I plan to add that in time, there's still another 1min50 or so of song to go to). What I do need to do though is to change the vids beginning so that it's faster paced and better fits the music just as you say
anyways... problem is work is still very slow going since even simple things take me quite long. As for the background it needs you mentioned, I was planning to spice up the first 40 or so secs before she jumps down the cliff with fadebacks to clare/theresa... or maybe take that rather long part where she's running, and running, .... and running ... and have the flashbacks in there as if she's thinking back to clare while running.
If you like, drop me a line where in the vid you would put the additional background scenes... more at the start, or more like flashbacks? apart from that, I basically only used crossfades, tried to time it a bit to the beat and had some simple effects like black and white. Basically I posted it as a beta version to get feedback like this and try to work on it, so again, Thx
edit: oh and thx for the link to wispers in the dark, one of my favorites XD ... If I was capable of making it look like this I would have
well the manga (translation) directly says sophia is the strength one and noel is the agile one. whether the translation is accurate or not, i can't do anything about that, as i don't know japanese and am stuck with the translation.
i totally forgot about the manga pics....
sorry but in this, you are wrong.
the manga pics SHOW sophia as the strength one (she has the curly downward hair) by her cutting through the stone pillar and the yoma behind it.
the manga pics SHOW noel as the agile one (she has the more male-like hair) by her doing the cartwheels and killing 3 or so yomas.
