So anyway, we made this video back in 2004. It was a part of the final "DDR Project", a series of multi-editor AMV projects which took the nonstop megamix soundtracks from the Dance Dance Revolution series and made hour+ strings of videos. This is why it starts coming in from a Naruto video (our buddy mckeed who also did a track in the "Doomrider" DBZ AMV project), and ends in a green-screen to transition into the next track.
Made it with the FUNimation DB DVD releases (double-disc packs). Just realized I still had one of the scripts we used, too, in case anyone wants to use those older discs for anything (which I wouldn't recommend):
DB AVS Script wrote:a = MPEG2Source("locationfile.d2v").Crop(8,0,-8,0).Telecide(1).Decimate(5).ConvertToYV12().Deen("a3d", 3)
lm = a.FluxSmooth(7, 24).Deen("a2d", 7).Blur(1.5).Blur(1.5)
lm_m = lm.EdgeMask(0, 1, 255, 255, "cartoon", Y=3, V=1,U=1).Binarize(threshold=20).Greyscale().Invert().Blur(1.5).Blur(1.5).Blur(1.5).Blur(1.5)
nlm = MaskedMerge(lm, a, lm_m)
mfToon(nlm).Tweak(sat=1.2, cont=1.1, bright=1.3).AddBorders(8,0,8,0)
But yeah. 2004. Our first real dive into After Effects. Also, hey... original DB. No DBZ. Nice.
