|It turns out it wasn't as fun as this video ahhhhh|
I’ve been having fun making the combo video (so far), but at the same time it’s been tedious. For one thing, each combo pretty much started in training mode, me just messing around trying to find some weird setup that worked for whatever reason and running with it. Again, there was only one combo that I actually combo theory’ed out using Blazblue’s annoying proration system. Aside from that, it was a bunch of experimenting. Partially because of this, alot of the combos that I used were very situational and sometimes really annoying to setup as many combos in combo videos are. Not having another person to help setup certain things were pretty annoying too, but I was able to make do with what I had. Makes me really thankful for ArcSys’s wealth of options for training mode, though I’m disappointed that there is no way to start out near the corner or in the corner automatically.
|REAL COMBOS HERE|
I’ve also just recently decided on the music that i plan on using. I have some plans on how I want to sync things together, so hopefully it turns out ok. I’ve already tried my hand at editing stuff. I’m using Sony Vegas Pro, which seems to be pretty easy to use probably because I’m only using the simple features. What I tried editing together was really tedious and time consuming so it should only get easier from here. It didn’t come out as nice as I wanted it to, but I’ll write about it in a transcript later when I release the combo video.
Aside from making this combo video, the other thing taking up all my time is work. While working, I was able to ascertain some things about myself. The main thing I learned is that if nothing interesting is happening, I will inevitably doze off even when I have had a good night of sleep. The natural solution to this is to keep myself active which has been quite key. This has included drinking water, learning things on wikipedia, and whatever else is not overtly obvious that nothing is happening. I haven’t relied on caffeine because I don’t want caffeine to be a crutch that I have to rely on. Not to mention from what I’ve seen with my mom and my brother, caffeine withdrawal sounds painful and annoying.
|WHY WORK NEVER LIKE THIS|
Anyways, onto things that’ll be happening in the future, I’ll be done with my internship a week from now as will my finished combo video. But from what I’ve done so far with editing, I feel it’ll take me less time to edit the whole combo video compared to what I was doing last night. It should be pretty apparent why it took so long even though it all spans about 8 seconds when I upload the combo video.
