You used 3rd person wayyy to much imo. Also there were some decent frags but for every good frag there was also just a random average or garbage one for no real reason.

i used 3rd person because i couldn't get smoothing to work and didn't want it to be plain first person frag dump, but for the next one i managed to fix and get HLAE working so it'll be something way better hopefully! :)

i dont understand why this video has so many dislikes on youtube, please dont let that stop you from continuing to make stuff. i agree with what tino said, you did use third person a bit too much but i dont think you should scrap that idea altogether. you should be using third person either when necessary to show something that couldnt be understood in first person (the rollers on sunshine are a perfect example of that) or as a method to go from shot to shot, which will separate your video from just another clip dump, you showing off an airshot outside of first person was a good use for it, but showing the heavy on that gullywash clip was completely unnecessary. try and get an idea of how your video should flow because breaking that flow is really detrimental to how your video will be perceived. its clear you have a lot of ideas for stuff so you should just experiment, continue to make stuff, and find out what you think looks good

Tino and Nick already listed everything negative that I could come up with except why was there no audio for the frags? Was that on purpose and if so why? Problems aside I really enjoyed it and I like your style. Not a song I would normally listen to but worked well for the video.

Yeah, I have to agree with Nick, the dislikes are completely unrepresentative of the quality of the video, and I hope you continue to make frag clips. Aside from the already mentioned problems, I feel like this was a really solid frag video that synced with the music very well. Keep up the good work!

my best tip would be to watch your favorite frag movies or edits and just study the aspects that make them so enjoyable to watch. Improvement takes time, but it will come.

And don't let the youtube negativity deter you from projects-- a lot of people here know when they see something they don't enjoy, but usually aren't too good in articulating why they dislike it. Just don't forget that were just making videos about video games, some negative votes shouldn't be the reason you stunt your creativity.

you got some mad potential though so keep it up-- hmu on steam if you got any tf2 recording or general editing questions.

I definitely liked certain aspects of this video but I really think your technical skill is holding back your creativity. Here are my thoughts:

1. I don't think I've ever seen a video that has had static third person cameras that I've thought looked particularly good - you should try to learn how to create smooths for your videos as this will definitely help to make frags in your videos memorable when paired with music syncs. There are various tutorial videos for this that you can find whether you do it using only HLAE or HLAE and Cinema 4D. That said, I really liked the way you used some of the third person (the airshot on snake for example) and the effort is great.

2. Flashy transitions can definitely have their place but you used far too many strange transitions like radial wipes for seemingly no reason. Simple can work very well! I find quick fades, wipes and pushes (add some blur for these) to be the most enjoyable and non-distracting to watch.

3. There were a couple of easily solvable 'quality of life' issues that I noticed. Firstly the game audio was way too quiet and I couldn't hear it at all - this may be personal preference but I personally think you should have made the game audio a lot louder. Secondly, you may want to install casting essentials so that you can highlight the killfeed for the player getting the frag in a clip. If you don't do this it can sometimes be hard to tell how many frags a player got in a clip and (imo) takes away some of the feeling of seeing an insane frag.

With all of this said, I still think you made a good video and you shouldn't feel disheartened at all by anything anyone has said in this thread or on youtube. You did a lot of things well and as you learn more your videos are going to become really enjoyable to watch I think.

Hope some of this helped. Keep making good videos!
