Yesterday we got word of the Avengers Remix Editor and, being a huge comics fan, I had to run over immediately to make my own remix video. I'm really looking forward to new movie coming on May 4 and having access to content like this just pumps up the excitement level even more. I know this is by design but in this case, I don't care. The more I can preview the movie, the better.
That being said, I did look for a way to make a slightly funny remix and here is the result. The working title was “Hawkeye: OOPS”
A WeVideo editor, integrated with the YouTube page, provides the heavy lifting through a pretty decent flash interface. I had a couple small issues when trying to edit – when zooming in on the video timeline if you don't click the mouse, the setting won't stick. If you move your mouse to the left or right the zoom levels will go out and in accordingly.
There are many video clips available. Most are very short and need to be combined to make a good story.
Here is a break down of the Avengers media available –
- 29 action scenes
- 34 character scenes
- 21 story scenes
- 4 songs
- 20 sound effects
- 6 voice overs
- 14 transition effects
- a video bar where you can drop/insert the video media
- precision editing (you can split the video and cut, zoom in/out)
- 2 sound track bars with volume control
- overlapping sounds – this gives flexibility on how you apply sound effects to the project
- 90 second ‘movie' maximum
