Melody of Friendship (PMV)
This is a video i made 2 weeks ago. it's a simple PMV, and i played with colors a little. As always, i used Vegas 10 and Photoshop to make some effects.
I would like to hear your opinion?

RE: Melody of Friendship (PMV)
I really enjoyed it, this style was really effective with the music! I'll be giving lots of picky advice on particular things, cause that's usually what I look for when I submit videos for concrit. To the nitpicking:

This music is really interesting, since it's not a bass pumping EDM track, but still has quite strong hits on the beat. For most of your clips, the sync in cuts and internal sync (things that happen in the clip) fit well with the beat, but where it wasn't, it didn't have the same impact. Syncing everything up would give better flow and make the music and visuals more coherent.

The blue flourish at 0 : 35 doesn't fit so well IMO, the colour doesn't blend nicely with the background and looks too foreign. A gradient overlay with more neutral colours would allow it to work with the BG.

The scene at 0 : 39 with RD flying is great, but her colours being off distracted me too much. Maybe you could use some colour correction, especially since there is a canon scene right after, which would make it feel like it's more the same scene. Also, horizontally flipping the IRL scene would allow it to flow much better with the next scene, since if the RD's are flying in the same direction it'd feel much more coherent, and would suggest that it is supposed to be the same scene (if that's what you were going for)

The cut at 1:18 seemed really abrupt to me- I can see that you're trying to make the position of filly and adult twilight fit exactly, but it was quite jarring for me since it was such a big skip from small to adult twilight. Also, the few scenes from 1:18 seemed too twilight-centric, in contrast with the rest of the video which were more about all of the mane 6. On the other hand, the cut at 0:50 was really well done IMO, even though it was from adult RD to the filly mane 6's, since you had the sonic rainboom as a coherent device, making it flow reeally well (I only noticed it the second or third time I watched it).

Sorry if this was a bit too much negative advice, but IMO with this style of PMV, negative things are much easier to spot and point out than the things that are done really well, which is only really indicated by a particular feeling the viewer leaves the video with-- and I felt it. It was well done, but just polishing off these fine details can make it an amazing PMV.

RE: Melody of Friendship (PMV)
I am always opened for a constructive critique! And i agree with everything you said here. I'll try my best to fix similar problems in my future PMVs.
The blue flourish really doesn't fit well, i shouldn't have used it at all.
0 : 39, i wanted to make that RD part look like a dream, so the next scene looks stronger. I guess it would still be better if i fixed her color, and flipped IRL scene.

Tnx for the replay!
P.S. sorry if i messed up my English here Smile
