Ignition by racecarghost1

Racecarghost is back with another action packed video of epic proportions! Great use is made of one of my favorite editing techniques, which is using washed out colors for the slower parts of a song then having the full colors explode onto the screen when the music picks up. Awesome use of small zooms as a transition during the fast parts was also very effective.

Only for crazy ponies by MrDzoni955

Today’s video is only for crazy ponies, so if your mind is still mostly intact I suggest you be on your way. …are they gone? Good, now we can enjoy the video without all those sane people giving us a hard time. Some of the best moments in the show are when one of the characters starts to completely lose it, and the addition of some really fitting music just brings the madness to the next level. Some quick cuts and screen distortion during changes in the music add some great creepiness as well.

DashStep by Final Colt Productions

Dubstep music is always great for some action packed PMVs, and especially good when you focus on all the awesome villains in the show. The hard part is making effective use of all those ‘wubs, but this PMV does a stellar job matching the video to each little variation in the music. Lots of quick cuts and changes to the playback rate are the main tools, all with almost perfect timing. I also thought showing the appropriate Rainbow Dash scenes to match her voice clips in the song was quite enjoyable.

BURN by gakpls

This PMV is short but intense, to put it lightly. Lots of shaky cam, distorted colors, and flashes of light turn the chosen scenes into something truly frightening. Of course the best part is the GLOWING EYES OF DOOM on all the monsters. Looking forward to more from this author!

My Little Gurren Lagann by TheEmpty10

 

No words can express the amount of sheer awesome that is contained in this animation. The combination of ponies and Gurren Lagann, the two best shows ever created, what could be better? The animation may be unfinished according to the author, but what’s there is already very fluid and really manages to combine the styles of both shows. Just make sure not to watch too many times in a row, your computer may begin to melt from awesomeness overload!

Canterlot City Theme by jhaller2

Jhaller is back with another video just chock full of really neat effects. The dissolve effect from Twilight to Shining/Cadence was really cool looking, but my favorite part by far was the scene where each character pushes their element of harmony onto Chrysalis, causing her to shatter spectacularly. The comic book style panels towards the end were also a nice touch, and I haven’t even mentioned all the painstakingly created masks that are used throughout. There’s a lot going on in this short video, but it all fits together great with none of the effects overshadowing the storyline.

Starvation by ObbsessiveBookworm

Today’s video gives us a dramatic look into the dark and sordid history of the great nation of Equestria. Some really intense music and perfectly placed sparks and fire make the history shown in “Hearth’s Warming Eve” more striking than it has any business being. The scenes overlaid on top of panning shots of the map of Equestria was also a very nice touch.

Flight Of Icarus by King Madward Hatchet

A song about flying? That must mean a Rainbow Dash PMV is imminent! And if it’s an Iron Maiden song then you know it’s going to be an awesome one. With so many great Rainbow Dash scenes to choose from, especially after the recent Wonderbolts episode, a video like this practically writes itself. But that doesn’t mean it’s easy to get the timing just right, which this PMV manages to do.

Krewella Killin It by Dazzl fck yea

Today’s PMV is about competition, both between friends and between enemies. The video does a good job making both extremely exciting to watch, with lots of split screens and multiple layers. The smokey text effect was also very cool. We don’t get to see the mane six compete with each other very often, so RD and AJ’s Iron Pony Competition still stands out as one of the most interesting episodes.
