Does anyone remember a while back, when i said that i'd try to teach myself video editing? I've been fiddling around for a few days with Windows Movie Maker (basic program to teach me the ropes), and hopefully i'll move onto proper programs soon. I don't have many options available, e.g. backwards video, and all of the videos are just clips i downloaded before (mostly Nekton's :p), and i didn't have much material available :down: It's my first effort, so go easy on the criticism :scared:

It's encoded in DivX 5.03, so download this and it should work fine :)

http://download.divx.com/divx/DivX51Bundle.exe

It's 17 MB, so sorry dial-uppers :p

I don't know man, that Orff remix is pretty messed up, the chorus is groovy but the rest.. :mute: I'm sure you meant well though ;) Also, the other audio is not bad (or the stuff that's in between at least) :)

For some reason the quality of the flick is questionable, dunno if that's the original or if I'm missing a codec but everything else seems to run perfect here so I think it's the video :p

Nice mixing and choice of material :cool:

Ps. Sorry for being so critical of your early work ;)

screw you Prez ;)... i liked it .. i think it was awesome :thumb: :cool:

i liked the choices of goals and the part where he gets a yellow card.

PS although i dont think this part fits at all, but u still gotta love the formal miss!! :howler:

i think the sound track was pretty good. it played nicely with the videos.

not bad for the first time...i see a lot of potential :)

Hehe I know the remix is a bit weird, i would've liked to cut some bits and pieces out, but audio eng. is not my thing at the moment. You got it just right, I love the chorus, but other parts are weird. Listen for a weird noise like a cat choking on something, i tried to sync that as much as i could with one of the goals, but it just didn't work out :undecide:

Some of the weird stuff i put in there (e.g. the still frames) is just experimental, i probably wouldn't have tried if my life depended on this.

I think the quality's a bit stuffed, i cut it down from 60 odd megs to 17, so i expected to lose something. I didn't really check out the compressed version that much, but the original seemed okay.

I'd hardly call that a blasting ;) Comments are very welcome, especially early on. I hate it when people are beginners at anything, and they get all defensive when they get shut down by more experienced people. Thanks :)

Thanks Majed :D

Haha I know about that Forlan thing, I just wanted to be cheeky, and I just had to share it with anyone who hasn't seen it before. It also kind of serves to slow down the tempo a bit after all that excitement, so i made the music fade out a bit prematurely, because the Forlan clip dies down a bit towards the end. I just hope people who don't know footie that well won't confuse him with Nedved because of the similar hairstyle :rolleyes:

that's the first thing i thought of when i saw that clip.

also, it doesn't exactly help Chimenti's reputation!! (oh wait...what reputation? ;) )

Oh crap! I just realised that there were new goals i could have used... I just realised that Nekton's still putting up all the Juve goals!

I was thinking of putting the yellow card clip at the end, since it doesn't fit in with the pace of the rest of the vid, but I thought that's a bad way to end it, since he's done great things since that incident :)

Gray...not bad not bad........!

I enjoyed it.

And thanks for confirming me that that stupid blonde who missed a goal was not Nedved. I was watching it...thinking " how fvcking stupid!" then i remember it's suppose to be a Nedved video. But the close up at the end ...gee didn't he look like Forlan. And that's the end so I didn't give much thought about it :D

Thanks for the effort my dear gray and hope more nice ones are on the way....

:cool:

Of course I remember. And I've been waiting quietly for your masterpiece....

And God, the yellow card incidence ripped my old wound open again....the endless "if...." questions....it's sad....
