Here is something I think you should strive for in your edits. Jordan showed me this video a while back. I think this guy basically does what you are trying to do. Stop butchering gameplay to the point where people can't even make out what happens. It's not what you should strive for at all, you should easily be able to show both gameplay and your gfx skills at the same time.
Actually that's not my style in the least. This guy does not 'do what I'm trying to do'. For starters, you don't know what I'm trying to do. My work is solely experimental and self taught, I will do as I please. There's no one that's going to govern over how I conduct my work but me. Secondly, I actually hate that edit, I don't see why you would think that's remotely my taste. Please don't get ahead of yourself and think you know a thing about me, especially what I like or my creative aspirations. And if Jordan is Wonderland I can pull up 100 videos of what he is trying to do, starting with NIIGHT. If these edits are new to you, you may want to start checking out the many editing communities there are, like T10, Revise, Requiem, Relative Minds, UniqueTrappin, OCC, Verum, T3C etc. Don't tell me I'm 'butchering' gameplay because it doesn't suite your taste. I'll happily hand over the footage to you so you can do a better job if you so please. You act like I made this because I have something to prove lol but, at the same time, you have not proven to me why you seem to think of yourself so highly. I still don't get it.
I'm not going to waste anyones time by posting a long write up about this since everything I saw had the same mistakes (imo) as your last edit that I commented 3 paragraphs on. Forced syncing, unfitting effects, twixtor distortion on clips that weren't even slowed down, the list goes on.
1. No one asked for a long write up, or anything at all for that matter. 2. I don't even know what video you commented 3 paragraphs on because honestly I don't pay you much attention to you. 3. Forced syncing? Unfitting effects? Haha I don't think you understand that art is subjective so who are you to tell me what does and does not 'fit'? And I don't know if you've realized but twixtor doesn't create motion vectors on something that isn't slowed.. twixtor interpolates footage between frames using vectors......so.......... if you see it.. that means it's slowing something........ you may want to start shortening that list. And while you're at it you can hop off that pedestal, looks lonely up there. It seems you don't understand how constructive criticism works. Sorry I don't make the same template, cut & paste mimicked work you're used to but trust I couldn't care less. Just because I'm not doing what you're teacher told you to do in creating an artform, doesn't make it wrong. There's no right or wrong in the art world. That's why there's men like Basquiat. Sorry to break it to you but you're no Scorsese of the Halo community, so please don't attempt to belittle me. I can be as unorthodox as I like with my work and I don't remember asking for you validation. I know exactly what you two would like to see, and I am more than capable of doing so, it's just I have other plans, like being original. Thanks though.
Ugh, and just as I was saying not to take offense to bias remarks. Making me put my foot in my mouth lmao. Well, I guess I'll just wait for the snarky remark that's sure to ensue.
