This video was great, very clean. Pretty impressive that this is your first tron as you smashed it. It had a massive old school feel to it which I enjoyed a lot. From a viewing standpoint, it was a very fun watch and I guess the theme helped with that a ton but the clip selection is your strong point of this. I am not going to go into editing too much as I know you have been doing this for many years and you know your craft. But I think one thing that you could try and work on is playing with your velocity work a little bit, it isn't bad at all but it could be a little more smoother if you was to play with the keyframes a little, with moves I usually tend not to set the speed back to 100% until 5/6 frames after the impact (hitting the move on the beat at the same time of course). But overall his is great, watched this about 3 times before feedbacking this just because I enjoyed the watch.
Eh, I really don't know what to say about this. It really isn't bad but I just didn't find this enjoyable. This also seemed really rushed to me and felt as so it needed a lot more polishing and playing around with. The nameplate itself started really cool but when the text appeared it just ruined it, feel as if the text is too big/plain and it doesn't really stand out too much. I know this song is really slow and hard to work with, but I feel you could have done a lot more with this editing itself, it wasn't bad just a bit too simple. The clip selection was probably the strongest part too this though you could have probably grabbed a lot more footage to work with which could have helped you out a lot with the editing as a whole. Sorry if this feedback isn't the best, just feel as so this tron is a big step back from your Butcher and The Blade one. I've seen a lot of your comments on feeling limited with the program you are using, I am not sure what Final Cut is like but if you feel you are limited with what you can do, it's worth trying to jump ship to learning a different program. Also, make your watermark a little smaller as well lol.
To start off, I really dig this nameplate with the string coming off the text, not sure if it's the font itself or you did it yourself but it looks really cool. My feedback with this is gonna be the complete opposite of -EX-'s but I feel you over edited this a bit too much than what was needed. The invert effect you used with the moves was a bit too heavy to even see the impact of the move properly, not sure if that was because of a shake effect you added but it was a bit too much. You're pacing in this was a bit too fast too, it didn't really match the song and it didn't work very well with the syncing when trying to keep the pacing as fast as it was. This felt more like an MV than a tron to me, just where it didn't really feel like something you would see on a stage when a wrestler would be entering the ring. Something that bugs me with your edits is Twixtor work, I know we spoke about this before lmao but stop being lazy and keyframe it lol. Just think you need to chill out a bit overall with your editing as you seem to always try over editing when it isn't needed, same could be said with your Balor video. Try working on your own editing and making it look watchable without any effects before adding them, that is what I do.
Musemvx, loved this video. This was done very well. I really don't have any issues with it honestly. Your pacing was great, and your clip selection was also amazing. I really liked the beginning graphic and if you made it yourself I applaud you. Great work. Nameplate was simple but looked very good also. I could literally see Christy using this as an official titantron video. Great work, I enjoyed it a lot. Probably one of the best titantrons I've seen in a while.
-EX-, this was okay. First off, the text you used for the nameplate could have been better. It was kind of too big and just seemed generic. So I think you could have did a better job with that. But your clip selection was pretty good tho. For how slow of a song this was I think you did a pretty good job with your choice of clips. I also think you did a good job with the fx. It was very simple but seemed to suit the video well. This was decent for what it was, but it could have been way better.
Pehrox, this was great. I enjoyed this a lot. First off, the nameplate looked amazing. You did a great job with that. And the smoke overlay you used in the background was a nice touch throughout the video. Your clip selection was very strong in this also. Loved it. Only thing I didn't really like too much was the effect you used during the move sequences. It was way to bright. If you would have maybe toned it down a bit I think it would have looked a lot better. Also, the transition of Orton posing behind the fire into the fire from the nameplate at 1:19 was a very nice touch. Overall, I thought this was a very good video. Great job.
Musemvx: Already gave you my general thoughts about this and they haven't really changed since. Thought you did a really nice job with your technique, clip selection, and motion design to produce a really nice entrance video. Wished you would've incorporated the design you made at the start with your nameplate but didn't affect your video overall. Really nice job.
-EX-: Decent work, just didn't think it profiled the character well enough here. Getting the character across is more of a priority than showing off move-set in this case and you felt you struggled with that at the start. 0:40-0:56 would've been the perfect way to start your tron as there was a great balance of unique expressive shots and wresting that make the wrestler stand out. However, by that time I generally lost all interest as what was shown before didn't really stand out. Just about having a good balance and managing your time well.
The nameplate really didn't look great or good for that matter. The font used didn't really match with the overall look you were going for and the stroke used made it worse. I'm not completely sure if motion design interests you, but it is something you need when doing this stuff. Compared to your past work, it is something that has regressed with time, so limiting it might be the best for you, imo. If I'm wrong, put in more time in that by improving your resources and looking up guides and techniques to help improve in that area. Decent work overall.
Pehrox: Not a bad tron overall, just thought you overdid it some when it came to your technique. As the pace picked up, you overcompensated a bit which showed a lack of control. Wouldn't say it looked bad but didn't have a great flow, imo. Wish I had more to say but didn't really have any issues other than your lack of control. Compared to your recent video, just think you need to be a bit more consistent as you showed such good control, something that lacked a bit here. Solid work.
