This is a remake of the first someone told me i should have more sound during the part where I'm dodging so i watched that part of the "Matrix" over and over and recorded the sound and put it together and this is how it came out!!! Eventually I will make a full movie with a plot!!! So you can expect a trailer soon!!!

neutral As far as I could see, there wasn't really that much different about that compared to the first one. Still think it's not a great effect. And, yes, I noticed the sound and editing differences. confused

To achieve the effect i used a Video Wave 4. What I did was film it 3 different times and 3 different ways. I just combined the first part with the second and made the 2nd partly transparent and then did the same with the 3 clip!! biggrin So i didn't do too much editing lol hoping to get an even better version after a while!!

Yeah, good work, but i a tip, it should go slower and some should go faster, that would make it seem more, humm. .cool biggrin and u have to fit the sounds a little bit, But Great work! just ad some bullets and u got your selves a great clip!

Good effect! I'm happy to know how to do it...I haven't notice a lot of differences tough, between the first and the second clip.

I would have liked to see different angles, maybe a side shot of the man waving arms.. lol

it would be nice if you put all these clips/ tests together and make a short 1/2 min film, that i would like to see.

keep at it, we are all learning.

3 points.

hey 'black guy' guest... i don't see u trying 2 do anything remotely creative. did u ever consider that the budget of 'the matrix' was slightly larger than Sith_Knight's?

anyway, enough of the unplesantries... that guy will never even come back.

i never saw the first version, but it's a very good effect! it's amazing how well some simple transparent layering can turn out, isn't it!!!
well done - 3 stars
