i love the artwork you've picked my friend i looks really cool, the only thing i would say is the background you've used for the theme should be for SEGA lol...im sorry to be fussy but that sets off the OCD in me lol 😀

 

i have a really good one for Nintendo if you want to use it 👍

@BluSonik Haha you're right, i ripped the background from the theme i use in launchbox, but i still have the project, just need to render it again, no problem
I'm using random images for the videos, if you want something specific, just let me know!
Before i upload the Sega theme, you can have a look, do you want to change something?image.thumb.png.5af2b96b5b542fe9b6fc7078b0181dbf.png

@Yt4nu4 i would use the original artwork you used for the Nintendo Theme on the SEGA one as it fits perfectly and the logo for SEGA looks a little stretched out, the height is perfect its the width that is stretched too far lol....then its perfect 😀

i do apologise if i sound really picky and critical, my OCD goes crazy with this sort of stuff lol

 

FYI - Most of the Backgrounds i personally use i got out of the unified theme as its the same ones that were used to make the videos that are on emumovies that another forum member recorded from Hyperspin as they all match perfectly 👍

@BluSonik No problem on being picky, i'm doing this for everyone to have good videos, i don't care if i have to redo it, and also the videos are pretty easy to do, so not much to do, the only thing that take some time is the rendering
So, i'll keep the same background as the ones used in the unified theme, to match the playlists background :)

@BluSonik Thanks! I was woried that i didn't reduced Sega logo enough haha!
I'm using Sony Vegas 17, it's definitelly overkill to use such a complicated program to make so simple videos, but is the only editing software that i know how to (barely) use and i already made the presets so now its way easier to make videos
The only problem is that my Sony Vegas is cracked, so it don't work 100% of the time, crashes and constants glitches when rendering, so, not ideal...

@Yt4nu4 do you have a .png image of the border that you use around the video clip? I would like to give this a go.

i dont have sony vegas but i have another video editor, it will most likely turn out 💩 but you never know unless you try 😁

@BluSonik This is looking pretty good! What program are you using?
The video is done, i would only do little tweaks for preference reasons
When i was doing the preset for the videos, i got my reference video and tried to replicate every detail, the size of the center box, the animation speed, even the duration...
Then once the preset is done is alot easier, just throw the art you want and the video is done!

@Yt4nu4im using a free program called shotcut, its not a bad little program for free. Ive used it before for very minor editing but i sat down last night for an hour or so and had a play with a few more settings and thats what i managed to come up with 😁

I need to take a look at the speed of the animations and the sizes of the images for a start and then adjust the duration...

i used your videos as a visual reference but now i know i can actually get my idea into the program and make a video i will take your advice and let my OCD go wild lol 😂

ill take another go at it later and ill post an updated version for your opinion 👍

Looking perfect!
If i would change anything, i would make the logo come out from the top of the screen, in the video there is a gap between the logo coming on screen and the video border, other than that it is perfect!
The arts and the video are kinda of each person preferences i would only sugest for you to save every project, if you someday find a better fitting art or video you can easilly change it way and render way faster
Congrats! 😀

Thanks@Yt4nu4 😁👍

Im glad you spotted that with the logo as i had the same issue with the images when trying to learn how to do the slide in effect, thats an easy fix so ill do that asap

I had the same idea when it comes to saving the project, i must have changed the artwork 3 or 4 times and no doubt ill change it again lol 😂

Thanks for the tips with this, never thought i could pull it off to bs honest, cant wait to get this fixed and finish it up 😁

It's looking amazing! Where do you get this intro? For the Mp3 part it is due to preference, i would prefer the video audio because if you come to think, whats is a theme song that's represent Sony for example? Not all publishers/Developers have a memorable theme song, Nintendo, Sega, and maybe one or two more have a decent soundtrack for using in the video but i don't think every video would have a memorable mp3 to put instead of the video audio.
Today i will be making more videos, but i do love the ideia of the intro, maybe i'll try it by myself haha
