    Does the color board do like, shadows, midtones, and highlights? That's what the color corrector does, but I usually use different effects to change the colors in my videos. Except the ones with lots of masking x) I haven't made one like that in a long time. Naww, don't think like that. If you must reference me, we'll call it...inspiration xD

    OOOOHHH, I see. I guess that makes sense...FCP uses a color board. That's how I change hair colors and stuff.
    Well that's good. I'd hate to copy you XD

    Alright, I don't mind constructive criticism at all :) I just don't appreciate being told effects I use look "cheap, needless, distracting, forced, hammy, and garish," and I don't feel it's fair to refer to the media I've used as "an innocent vicitm." That sounds more destructive than constructive.
    But really, this isn't my usual style either, or anywhere near my best.

    Well Sonic, Color Correction comes in two different types in Vegas, and it's pretty cool. There are actually numerous ways to change the colors in your video in Vegas. Like seriously, there are so many ways I couldn't even count xD Naww, don't think it'd seem like you were copying me, I'm sure lots of videos inspire the use of different colors x)

    "But I think having a uniform colour correction mode is boring."



    Nah, I'm not attacking you. Don't worry! I don't bite XD
    I just have a question for, well, both of you:

    Is a uniform color correction mode something Vegas users have? Because if not, I kinda wanna get into it...maybe-ish XD I don't wanna copy Princess's style XD

    Well, here's something to ponder about having uniform text - imagine, for example, I had a video with colour correction, but I just rotated through 3 settings that changed for each new line of the song. The colour correction settings don't reflect on any character in the video, but I think having a uniform colour correction mode is boring. The point of using the same font for the video, just as you use one colour correction setting for a whole video, is that it creates unity and coherence within the video. The clips you've selected work together in part because they look coherent. You don't have to listen to me, just consider it.

    I left you the constructive criticism here, since you told me in the Starlight collab it wasn't your usual style so I just found your latest video to see what was different - and there are differences, you are correct. This is a good AMV, it has good flow, consistency, and some really beautiful moments, so please don't be discouraged by the fact I've given some of the criticism part of constructive criticism. I hope you come back soon with more work :)

    And there is nothing wrong with text. Why on earth would you use the same font the whole time. That's boring.

    If you want to leave me some constructive criticism, this is hardly the place to do it- this is definitely my worst recent upload.

    Okay, so I'll just say it - I'm not a fan of lyrics in an AMV, it feels needless, distracting, and like forced subtitles. But obviously you and others here like text in AMVs, so I guess to each his/her own. I will say though that if you are going to do lyrics, make them the same font and size - play with placement, but a rotation through fonts and sizes is just a little hammy. I'd also think about perhaps not doing every single line of the song: the ending, with the "I'll never leave." on it's own against the black, is really powerful - but the effect is cheapened by the repetition beforehand. You've already pointed out the overhang of text so I won't ping you for that, I also notice a bit of flicker in the top of the clips at 0:04-0:09, could be a render issue? I liked the lighten/screen overlay you added at 0:15, it's just sadly ruined by that garish red text (could be an innocent victim of colour correction?) A good story, short and simple, but looking good for the most part. Good shot selection and flow. I understand you've had some issues with Vegas, so some of the issues I've highlighted above could come down to that. If it starts to cooperate again, maybe revisit this at some point? Might be well worth it.

    Oh please, don't worry about the quality, it isn't the most important thing :D I love it all the same, 360p or 720p XD And when you've been in the business for so long, any AMV is good, especially from you XD I hope you get better working conditions soon :D

    Awww, come here you x3 *hugs* I'm glad you liked it, I only wish I could've done better. If it wasn't such a pain, I'd fix it and publish it in better quality, but it really is just that bad. I can't even play it in vegas so I don't know what I'm doing. But editing is the closest I can get to sharing how I feel x) As cheesy as that sounds. I just wanted to make something for you guys :)

    Thanks, the name and some of the lyrics are the only parts that meant something to me x) I really can't do much good editing when the thing crashes all the flipping time. I really want to make good videos for you guys, but I can't when I can't see what I'm doing

    That was awesome! I wouldn't say it's your best, but I love it! It's great! I love you guys too, I'm just happy to get to meet you guys and have fun with you, even if we're miles and miles apart! Great video...I don't have much to say on it, I like the theme of it all: "I'll never leave." It fits us well, me thinks XD
