Hi. This is my first entry.
I edit videos for my own music, since it seems people are more keen to hear it if it has something to look at, sadly.
I want to know what you guys think of the video: If its ok, mediocre, plain bad.. heh.
I went for a retro-80s feel, since the music is "synthwave". I downloaded some stock footage from the web with a common theme for each part of the track.
The issue I had is that sony vegas pro 13 DOESN'T HAVE any automatic audio spectrum visualizer generator! So I had to screen capture winamp's visualization and blend it over the footage.
FInally, I threw some warp fx and tv simulator to the video output so it looks like seen on a CRT TV.
Hope you like it. :phones:

why don't you put together a series of news clips from that era?

I felt that the drums were too far back in the mix, probably because of too much wet on the reverb. I think you could improve it by reducing some of the reverb and giving the drums more of a clear presence in the mix.

Thanks for the tip.
I was so afraid of the drums being "over the top" and had this idea in mind were I wanted all to sound "spacey" but clearly maybe it was too much difussion overall and that killed the drums. I'll got that in mind in the future.
