After recording everything, I needed to edit the video so that it would be a video instead of individual clips. For reference, I watched alot of other combo videos to see how they managed to do transitions and how it worked out for them. After doing so, I immediately ruled out the idea of using transitions other than fade out. It looks too tacky and generally disrupts the flow of the combo video, unless you know what you're doing I would assume. I decided that it would just be better if I did it simply and didn't try and complicate things any further so I just used fade in and fade out transitions for the combo video.
After making that decision, I needed to decide how I wanted to order the combos. I knew that from the beginning I wanted to have a combo video that synced with the music since combo videos are essentially just entertainment with generally very impractical. So, all I really wanted to do was make something hype and fun to watch even for people that knew little about the game. Though I have to say that my method of determining the order of combos was completely arbitrary. I took combos and put them in, watched the video, and noted what didn't work out well and changed the ordering from there. Interestingly enough, when I watched the video on youtube, it's out of sync compared to a local copy that I have which is a little annoying to deal with.

|Too super, too kawaii desu|
I ended up getting 4th in my pool, which unfortunately wasn't as good as I wanted. I did want to qualify for top 8, but watching top 8 was also great. Though Blazblue was a complete disaster, so fuck that. All of grand finals was fun to watch and hype to watch, though I did miss some of it because i had to play some of my matches. Afterwards, I hanged out with east coast which is always great. I have to say, I have the most fun at east coast tournaments especially those run by Big E. They're always fun, and I love the east coast community that I sometimes only get to see then. I'll probably be able to go to NEC which is probably my most anticipated tournament. With Japanese players going and once again a large pot bonus, I hope good things will happen.
|Oh yea, Happy Cirno Day~|
