Could you leave some tips on how to become a good editor? Or basically where to start. I'm quite used to different programs, but I'd like to become really good. Like you, I think you're really good, so it would've been nice if you would help me out. If you may give me some tips or leave som links.<3 Caoun
My #1 tip is to just have fun with your editing and edit for yourself. Make friends online who are also interested in editing AMVs. Audition for random MEPs on YT (that's how I started out). Join a studio. Don't worry so much about trying to impress or please others. You get better by experimenting and editing things you enjoy. For technical AMV knowledge, I like the tutorials on this channel: https://youtube.com/user/AMVlogChannel
Hope that helps! Feel free to ask me questions here.
how many times did you visit France ?
Is there a song you always wanted to edit you never did?
Yes. So many haha. Usually I just can't find a source to fit them, so it goes unedited.
what's the flow , and thank you ^^
Are you asking me what it means to have "flow" in an AMV? I think flow can always be interpreted differently depending on the editor. To me, flow is about the atmosphere created when the song and the video just mesh well together. It's the mood and the pacing of the clips with the music.
Is there a trick to quickly adjust a detailed mask if the change is big between frames?
Sorry, there is no quick trick that I know of (I wish hahaha) but the best thing to do is to reset the mask for next frame and start again. It's quicker than adjusting the previous mask for the new frame.
Hi! May I have a link for the song in Sakura Trick amv "The road together"/
Why wasn´t Nisekoi, Tamako Market or K-On! not in the video, who are very famous, in the Video "Anime Got Talent" ?
Tamako Market is in there.
And I don't know, we just didn't choose to use K-On or Nisekoi.
give me an advice for a beginner editor ^_^
Edit for yourself, and don't worry about the approval of other people. Editing is fun when you're creating something that YOU like.
I've learned that the hard way. Now that I've been editing for a long time, I've started caring too much about what other people will think of my work, and it has made editing stressful for me at times. It's not as fun anymore.
Hey Jazzy love your works and can't keep count on how many times i've watched some of them. The question i have is, what is the most important part of editing to you? the feelings behind it or the reactions from the people after having completed something? or maybe something entirely different ^^ Von Hammer
That's a difficult question haha 😅
It depends on what I'm editing. When I'm editing something dramatic, the emotions and feelings are important to me. I want to create something that causes a physical and emotional reaction from the viewer. Somethimg that will also move myself when I rewatch it.
When I'm editing something fun, I'm more concerned about the viewer's feedback I'll receive from it. I'm purposely trying to create something that'll entertain others. So then my focus is on making something interesting, funny, or relatable.
jazzy how did u let the shadow get showing only above the guy http://prntscr.com/adjhes
I made two duplicate layers of the guy. I masked the top layer of the guy out, and inverted the mask, so that you see the duplicate underneath.
Then I took my masked shadow of the bunny and placed it between the duplicate layers. That way it only look like the shadow is on his body. (hope I explained this well)
https://youtu.be/kePePgk5HuI 0:17 main character's childhood, 0:34 violin performance, 1:10 transition indicating character died, 1:33 character "comes back to life" this was built around those scenes especially the ones they could incorporate masking in, do you have scenes in mind before you start?
I usually first have an idea for a theme, and then I look for scenes that will help me create that idea.
Soooo for me, ideas first, then scene selection.
What is the song and the edit of the amv song soul for sale?
Music: Simon Curtis - Soul 4 Sale
Anime: Ai no Kusabi (2012)
Ur a genius editor!^^ good luck in editing, and btw will u participate in this JE?:)
I don't think I'll participate in JE this year.
Hello o3o I have a stupid question. In your AMV "Vacant Heart" there's this scene with hands forming a heart and it's really pretty, unfortunately i have not watched all the animes you have used, so can you please tell me from which one it is. ;w; Thanks in advance!
I believe that hand scene is from Clannad. It's been awhile since I've visited that project.
What is the song and the edit of the amv dangerous love?
Jeffree Star - Get Away With Murder (Orchestral Cover) by The Difference
Where do you download the episodes? And if yes, do you use a vpn?
I download my anime sources from nyaatorrents.
I don't know what a vpn is. >w<
Hey, I'm editing AMV's aswell and I love your AMV's so much because they're outstandingly well edited. So I wanted to ask you what plugins you are using for SV and AE (example: NewBlueFx, Magic Bullet Looks). How long are you already editing? Did you learn all that by yourself? Jeff Jeff
I use Magic Bullets for my colors and color correction. I also like Twitch for camera shakes.
I've been editing AMVs since 2009, so a long time hahaha. I learned mostly on my own, but I've learned from other AMV editors as well.
Hello this is kind of sudden but do you have any tips on staying motivated to finish a project? ;v ; I am currently struggling with getting lots of ideas but ending up doing nothing productive due to loss of motivation LOL.. Thanks in advance!
I understand. I'm currently having the same struggle xD
For me, motivation comes when I get to compete for something. My suggestion for you is to participate in AMV contests to give yourself a deadline and a goal to work towards. Also collaborating on a video with others is a great way to push yourself to finish something. Hope that helps :)
