    Nicely done. Could be a little bit longer. But I know, how much time you have to spent, for some seconds of extaordinary animations.
    Good luck for further Videos (Headys:)

    I would suggest in the future not obscuring the view of the shot with ripple effects, I couldnt see it.

    Also Vegas is pretty cool, I used it to make a 5 min video on Riots not long ago, my video can be found on youtube.

    EDIT : Watched it again and I must say very good choice of music, fits well !!

    I was using a SourceTV demo.
    To those of you saying about the length of it, well, I couldn't make this one frag clip any longer without it dragging on really.

    Biohazard, thanks about the ripple, you can't even see the shot in the actual video though, it's that quick!
    I'll still consider whether to use a ripple next time for certain shots as I know what you mean about it making things difficult to see.

    Thanks for the input guys!

    Well, I did not choose the song, and it syncs well so I let Tr!gger have it in there.
    However, I've never actually heard "Hit The Floor" in a frag movie before...
    Suckage, well, he does a lot of things ;)

    The editing looks pretty good, but remember one thing. Linkin Park is the most overused band for frag videos, no matter what the quality of the frags are, if the music is terrible then nobody will want to watch it.

    I didn't say a lot of frag movies used that particular song, I said that the band is overused by people making frag videos. But, you wanted links so here you go. All of the following links have Linkin Park used somewhere in the video.

    One
    Two
    Three
    Four
    Five
    Six
    Seven
    Eight
    Nine
    Ten

    Well, that was fun, but retyping all of this xhtml is starting to get to be a pain in the ass. I'll let you google it if you feel like finding anymore.

    Only one of those videos uses the same song that I did and it wasn't even a frag movie really, just some recordings thrown together in windows media player. I don't see why people don't like Linkin Park, the song syncs well with the video, I looked through my entire library and only one other song did, and that was Wth>You - Reanimation - Linkin Park, TR!GGER did not want it in the video though as it is too heavy for his tastes. I did not pick the song, he gave me a list of songs to look through and that's the only one that synced.

    I said that they all had Linkin Park in them. But anyway, the reason why people don't like Linkin Park for frag videos is because they are so overused and it gets very old. I just don't like them because they try to mix rap with metal and do a terrible job at both of them but that is besides the point. I was just saying for future reference, use better music than Linkin Park, it makes the video seem like somebody with no experience put it together. Even if that is the case, you don't want people to think that >.>
