This is a discussion on KO4U Tribute video.....by Terrorblade within the Media forums, part of the Knight Online (ko4life.com) category; Originally Posted by SoulsHunter

All of my points of view are as if I had never seen the game before.
When you "asked people" about your video, I can almost 100% guarantee that every person you asked had some previous experience with Knight Online and I can also almost guarantee that they were probably friends of yours.
So when they see things Knight Online related, they will immediately associate your video with fun times, making it enjoyable to watch (to a certain extent).
Yet put this video in front of some WoW nerds who have never seen the game before, and they will not be so impressed.
2nd wrong point - I made some betatesting and ppl liked the way I was putting my text there. It's a point of view, nothing makes ur words right.
-- I wasn't so much referring to the text. I was referring to the overall length of the video and the theatrical elements you used. But since you were doing it under pre-existing conditions to make it a 3 minute video, its understandable now that you would want to stretch it out.
As a final note, you honestly believe people that have only one chance to watch this video in its entirety will be able to read and interpret all of the flashy text clearly?
Oh and leaver your arrogant speculations in your head. 90% of ppl, that responded for this video on all forums, are unknown to me.
And most of them like it.
I seriously don't understand why you took the role of video critic when you obviously know nothing about it.
Tribute is not another pk movie, which you got used to. Tributes can be made in many ways and most of them are similar to trailers.
The whole PRINCIPE of Tributes is to describe something and inspire people to join/buy/participate etc.
Which is what I did.
As I said ... there are some stuff I don't like:
1. Transition of those two songs (but I can't solve it since I'm not skilled in any sound editor software)
2. Text itself in the second part (from like 1:40) - I will change it to text description of the server
3. Too fast credits

nop babe i am playing my priest lvl 81 and still in sacred Amity ...
Okay, obviously you know it all.
Since you mistake my experience for arrogance, I'll leave the trial and error up to you.
May you never encounter a real critic.
Also, this is probably the most ignorant statement I've seen out of you so far.
I'm going to say one last thing that you will probably tell me I'm wrong about, but regardless...
When I make videos, I imagine it being played in a movie theater. Not on YouTube where you can watch it over and over again for further digestion. One chance to get your point across. Would your movie do it?
--And if you want some better points?
- Get rid of all the names above the characters
-hide the mouse cursor in almost all of the shots
-The introduction is poorly written
"unknown worlds seek for those who reveals their mysteries. Such seeking takes its price."
- Maintain professional text throughout
- Do not replay the same snippet more than once.
Terror, doubt you will remember or what not from lasthope/newhope
but i remember you
glad to see your still alive and kicking!
But just about the mouse cursor, it was just in few shots, not everywhere
I know my texts in Intro suck. English never been my natural language. But will try to solve that.
As for replaying, I agree, I shouldn't have used it but I guess you know how editing is slow, u change ur mind a lot and then keep re-editing what you have already done for thousand times. I was kinda in a rush and wanted to finish it
