I don't want to come off as harsh, but I feel I must be honest...

IT NEEDS WORK.... SIGNIFIGANT WORK.

For one, popping up "OWNED!" or "HEADSHOT!" right in the middle of the video is corny and lame... if you want a good promo video, don't EVER do that.....EVER.

For another thing, you need to do a much better job at editing your video.
What I mean is other than you pwning and the Linkin Park song playing in the background, theres no pizazz, as in there's nothing that really grabs the viewer's attention. One of your biggest mistakes is having just 1 long uncut, unedited peice of film playing the whole way through. The best thing to do is to have multiple clips, splitting apart those clips into highlights and cutting out all the dull moments, then mixing them back in together, MATCHING (and I cannot stress this enough) THE FLOW OF THE VIDEO TO THE MUSIC.

I just have 3 words to leave you with when it comes to putting together music and video....


TIMING

IS

E V E R Y T H I N G


If you want to see an example of why this matters, watch this video I made with the Half-Life 2 demo.

Best of luck to you dude! :wink:

Your sniping is good. But that would have been a bit better if there was more than just that one clip. Also, just watching sniping isn't very fun.

I know my video's are no better, me thinks they are worse. However, I do know a lot of errors I made with them. (I don't like adding text, because I'm lazy.

In one of those videos I had a 14+ knife killing spree, but a lot of it was waiting, so I cut all the waiting out. (The one with Big balls playing I had a 11 knife spree as well.)

@OP


Your video has got some nice overlay with text and stuff, my only complaints being the music choice (linkin park generic fragvideo song) and the fact its only 1 clip of fairly decent sniping, ;)


spend a little time gathering some good shots, spend a bit of time putting it together with a decent editing program (Sony Vegas?) and you could produce something like this :P

(my tce fragvideo for .49)


EDIT lol at frylocks comment, your knife video brought a tear to my eye



SECOND EDIT

This is a fragvideo made by ::SGM:: U-Taro, who is thought by many as the greatest TC:E player. He is japanese and he is *i-need-a-broader-vocab* unbelievable. enjoy.

Do you have just the trial of Vegas, or the full version?
(If you have the full version, I just may have to eat your soul :evil:)

the video could use work, but it's a great start. everyone needs to start somewhere.

just like every programmer has to make a "hello, world" program, every machinma director has to go through a few crappy videos. it's a rite of passage.

Yeah, I know, but I just felt I should give him some advice to help him out for, say.... his next video.
