    Exclamation Programs? (for making AMV)

    I tried making an AMV but it didn't work. Do you need any special types of programs to make one? I'll really like to know please.
    If people are going to treat you like a little kid might as well act like one and throw the tv out the hotel window.

    First you need footage of an anime, either by downloading or obtaining it from DvDs (I can't explain how to get those due to site rules and the fact either way is illegal in most countries, especially the US), and a Video Editing Suite.

    I personally used Windows Movie Maker to make my AMVs, but there are quite a number of different programs out there, and alot of them are not free (Adobe Premeire, Sony Vegas to name a view.)

    There are tutorials online (use google) on how to make AMVs, but I will give you two words of advice:

    1. DO NOT USE SUBTITLED FOOTAGE. This is concidered amaturish and will turn alot of people off your AMVs. As anime fans, its second nature for our eyes to snap to any subtitles on the screen, taking away from what we really want to see, Your AMV.

    2. A slide show of pictures put to music does not an AMV make.

    number one i find a tad difficult. it's hard to find a site with legal (and free) downloads of dubbed animes.

    2. Completely agree

    as for the programs, WMM is already installed on your computer if it's a PC, so you should start there. It's got a surprisingly easy to use interface.
    Why hello there!

    Im sure everyone has started at Windows Movie Maker at one point. I use Sony vegas now though. Keep in mind that you need "flow" in your videos matching clips as well as solid song choices. just because you" THINK" a song is good and your favorite doesnt mean it matches what you want your AMV to do.
