Oh that's awesome! Well, you definitely surprised me again. That's the only thing I can expect from you!

You know, I think the key to using a lot of effects is that you have to start with a strong foundation in the basics - movement, composition, and flow. Yours does all of this well, so the effects aren't a crutch the way they might be with some other vid.

Love how it started and ended with the same effect, and it perfectly expresses the music throughout. Fav moments:

:08 The standup. Perfect opening.
:20 Huh! :) Nice.
:30 You really showed off that shot well
:39 Dirty babe. Very funny.
:44 Love the well timed camera movement
1:02-1:08 - Amazing image sequence. Almost doesn't look real. And then that dramatic gun raising motion to end it. I love how it looks like the main character in the vid is one of the singers.
1:10-1:17 -Again with the gorgeous motion. Very kinetic.
1:27 - The "get your sexy on" fight. Neat.
Ah, I see the "ow" effect. Nice. It definitely works.
1:52 - the little dissolve on the "yeah". Ditto at 1:56. Great device.
The ending sequence with the grenade was well-conceived too, particularly the timing of the explosion.

Loved it!

wee, feedback is fun

For the most part it's recoloring because as pretty as the flashbacks were, they were SO orange and I wanted everything to be in pretty blues.

I wrote the xml thingy and tried it give it a sort of comic book feel, but I don't know how well it came out as far as looking like a comic book. It looks more like the rain from "Sin City".

:08 The standup. Perfect opening.
Yay, I was kinda thinking it would be a slow opening, but I went with it deciding it's a intro: "This is Ronan, Ronan > you."

:30 You really showed off that shot well
Thanks. I did a lot of time toggling in the vid, but that's actually a time toggle already in the source.

1:27 - The "get your sexy on" fight. Neat.
Thanks. When I was working on that section especially, WMM died so many times, so I'm surprised I was able to get it to work.

Ah, I see the "ow" effect. Nice. It definitely works.
EHhehe, I looks a little better without my letterboxing, but the scifi logo in the bottom kept bouncing around in the corner and changing color, so I had to get rid of it. And I find a way to do it, so yay for learning new things.

1:52 - the little dissolve on the "yeah". Ditto at 1:56. Great device.
It's my new favorite transition. I used it in Silent Night too, but differently. It basically takes the two clips and blends them together where they're light (kind like screen mode in photoshop).

The ending sequence with the grenade was well-conceived too, particularly the timing of the explosion.
OMG, time toggles out my ass. :) The basis for it is actually Justin Timberlake's music video for SexyBack (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w7SxvdIFvgk) where it has a :14 slow motion kiss lean in.

Not sure about comic book, but the opening/ending effect definitely had a "illustrated" look to it. Worked well. Blows my mind that you're still using WMM. Nicky was just saying a few days ago that once you get your hands on some pro software, the rest of us can just give up!

that's actually a time toggle already in the source.
But you handled the placement and presentation of it, and that's why it works so well. It would have been easy to lose the impact of that clip if it were poorly presented.

Yeesh that sounds like a lot of work! Always fun trying to trick WMM into doing things, eh? I'd say WMM is pretty much your bitch at this point.

Aww. I'm getting a new computer for my birthday and I'm looking into which program I'm going to get, so hopefully I won't have to wait too much longer.

Getting rid of the logo is actually one of the easier things. It's just adding a letterbox over it, which isn't getting rid of it more than just covering it up. :)

Hehheeh, it feeds me grapes and fans with a giant feather.

Knowledge of fandom = zero, but it rocked for me all the same. LOVED the opening and closing effects. The colouring is wonderful and, as usual, the movement and audio-cued motion are all intimidatingly spot-on, and the pacing is out of this world! The bit where it starts going crazy with effects is so fun and awesome.

I love the bit at 0:23 where the bomb(?) lands on the beat, and then there's a fade to him walking away, and that crossfade there fits perfectly with the audio.

"Take 'em to the bridge" - nice! :D "Dirty babe", too. Fantastic lyric matches all through.

LOVED that "oooh" right before the end. I laughed out loud at that part.

Awesome stuff! :D

Thanks. The part I wanted to work most was the coloring because it was the first time I did any recoloring in WMM.

The fade on him walking away is a composition a to b kinda thing where it blends the clips at parts where they're both light, then I had it fade in.

I was going to do something else for the Take em’ to the bridge part because I looked at it and thought it was too cheesy/crappy/awful, but then I kept it. :)
