    Is this what you want?! Hopeful Video Editor

    Hello my fellow HoN Fan Media whores.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Lazy mans instructions: (Read this part if you won't read the rest of the page)
    Watch Video link here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TtBx1CgqFIY
    Comment on if its what you want in a HoN video
    Profit!
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I come to you today to ask you for a which minute of your time.
    In my last video I made someone said it was boring, others said it was badly made bla bla bla.
    (See here for the ****: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TIptV6oM2p0)

    So i agreed with them and took time out to focus on a few of the things that are important in video editing.
    Style, Quality, Content and a load of other things.

    After a long period of time, I also have to concentrate on my studies, I played a game and there was a 'pro' moment that I thought would look good in a video.
    Instead of making a video with 4minutes of footage using my new found view of video editing I decided to use that video, edit it and present it to you.

    All i ask of you is to say if its what you want?
    Is the content good? Is the style cool? Is the angle/video editing satisfactory? Could you see yourself watching more videos like that? Is there enough change? Do you understand what is going on?
    Please don't comment on the content.

    IS IT WHAT YOU WANT?
    Heres the link:

    Thank you and good night.

    P.s. Nymphora is Hot.

    Could you perhaps expand a little?
    I can't really improve without anything else.

    You probably did the lazy-mans way.
    Can you expand on what else you thought about it?

    So out of all of those choices you chose the one that contradicted itself?

    You should use the normal camera angle for the frag parts (Intro|Frag Part|Outro/Credits) in your video and lock the camera to the hero you play (I can't see what is happening in the whole scene / add the user interface for frag parts!!!).

    Also:

    - Using the ingame sound makes a movie more adorable imo
    - Don't overdo it with soem effects! ( example light rays/TV simulator in your movie "NoScrub's Journey of HoN" )
    - Remove the mouse cursor in your videos (fraps = hide mouse cursor in options)

    my 2 cents

    Edit: It's not what I want

    Edit2: Maybe you wanna watch a short gameplay related scene that I've uploaded on youtube as an example what I'd like to see:

    This one without the UI:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QNirY...el_video_title

    And the second one with the user interface:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OPIWa...el_video_title

    good luck

    /edits over

    I dunno you could have tried not contradicting yourself how about that

    Agree with others, to be able to understand and have a good overview, lock camera on hero and use original game camera

    You should try to concentrate on what the viewer actually wants to see. The first link in your video contained a 10 sec intro of nothing that one has to see. Especially on YouTube, when a video longer then 30-60 seconds has smaller estimation of being seen.

    When the fight actually started, it was not easy enough to orient yourself of where on the map the encounter was taking place, and who were involved etc etc. Keep it more simple.

    There is almost always good to think "less is more". Fancy transition, edits along audio and well constructed storytelling, even if its just a gank or two, will surely enhance your videos.

    I study Digital media and digital marketing on the web at the university, and if its something I know, it is this stuff.
