Ik was groot fan van de Raver amv die won op Tsunacon,
en hoop dat we deze keer weer yoko-sexyness te zien krijgen.

En de Tsubasa Chronicle trailer-amv op Chibicon een paar jaar geleden,
was de reden dat ik verslaafd ben TRC.
Noooooo~s!! Gaan we nu eindelijk Nederlands praten? xD

Het het nivea ligt niet bizar hoog hoor, naja, op Tsunacon iig niet...

En ja, het wordt weer een Yoko AMV!!

w00t ik heb een fan!!
of nee... w8 er staat "was" ik heb geen fans...

Back ontopic:
Music choice is now set and ready, 1 july will be my starting date.
(Need to make 1 or 2 vids before the amv)

I'm really leaning on originality for this one, hopes it's gonna turn out wel...

I've rendered my video over and over and I kept getting complications and last 2 renders even crashed. I figured that DivX makes my video pixely and that my XviD (even though it's HD) has better quality. I tryed, I really did, but I just can't get it the way Power2All suggested.

Now I'm wondering... could I lose the contest due to the technical part?

Because the video looks great, I didn't get any extra pixels and if there are any pixels to see, those where already in the source. (i.a.w. the Anime) and the audio sounds just like the original audio I used for the AMV project.

And after all, this is an AMV contest, not a quality contest... (I hope )

yes, the quality of the encoding is definately part of the equation. it's not just a test of art but also a test of technical skill. a really good AMV which has some encoding problems will still rate higher than a bad AMV which is perfectly encoded though. The content is definately the biggest part but the tech also contributes to the final score, but the tech only becomes a bottleneck for the judges when the problems are really appearent.

if you feel your file is presented better in XVID, it's fine to use that. Any combination of the codecs and containers mentioned in the FAQ are allowed to be used.

What power2all did is give a suggestion to how he knows he can get the best result. but it's still that: a suggestion, not a requirement.

also note that we will test the videos before juding to make sure they run correctly. if we notice big problems (like crashing video players (which happend with one video last year)) which are easy to fix with a reencode we do allow people to send in a new version before the deadline. that way we try and get the best out of people and the most out of the competition.

one glimps into the world of our AMV juding: we have several judges. some are more geared towards content and others towards tech. that way we get a good overal view.

Sorry for being unpolite but I'm really stressing on this part...
I'm going on a holiday the 16th of July, so when can we sign up?

(I will have a pc available but not my own and WiFi will work like sh*t...)

There's a new plus here:
I finally got the technical part the way Power2All suggested!

I hope theres an Abunai! stand at Chibicon to get some more info.
