During these holidays, I managed to start and finish making a video- or more specifically, an anime trailer. Now, as a self-critic, here's a number of points I'd like to note down:
-The video quality is terrible. It is pixelated beyond the point of which I, and even normal people, can stand. Uploading it onto YouTube made it even worse- to the point that I'm now pretty (well, you could consider) 'ashamed' to have even decided to upload it onto YouTube.
-The music track is alright, however at the beginning, I can tell that the music is potentially slightly off beat, by maybe a quarter beat? Or perhaps it's the change in key.
-Towards the end of my video, I realise that the 'video size' changes. This in itself shows the lack of skill I have with video editing- all 'legit' videos have constant 'video size'.
-PIXELATED....it gets me more annoyed the more I look at the video haha. The black borders also don't help, as it makes my video smaller, and the subtitles (which were intentionally included) harder to read, if readable at all.
-Timing of some clips also seem to be off, perhaps more so towards the end/"climax".
Okay, done with ranting about my video and it's numerous flaws which have been screaming out to me since I finished. I guess what I was most disappointed about was how not-spectacular looking it turned out to be. The major fault really lies in the original video quality which I took clips out from- after all, better video quality = increased viewer enjoyment. Hey, and that's not just my opinion: why else would people invent Blu-Rays, and HD TV??
Okay, so maybe I wasn't quite that done with my rant. But it's fully over now- because I'm just going to post the video and be done with it. Honestly, after seeing how it turned out when I uploaded it onto YouTube, I really didn't want to post it here, but I already told my good friend today that I would, so here it is. (=_=)
Edit: Okay, I was watching my video in 360p instead of 480p. In 480p, the video is still not extremely acceptable in my books, but at least it is a lot better than the 360p version.
