A handful of people enjoyed my previous APB montage so I put together another one. I hope you guys will enjoy this one too. Constructive criticism is once again welcome!

This time around I put in the effort to have sound in every clip, I had to re-encode a couple of recordings due to the issue with importing variable framerate recordings in Premiere. I took your criticism to heart Felin even though music is louder than me in a lot of clips but that's okay because I say a lot of stupid mommy when I play. :D

It definitely made a difference having in-game sound so I'd say it was worth the work.

Overall, enjoyable to watch, but I wouldn't expect any less. Keep it up!

Overall nicely done, was fun to watch. Brilliant music choice for the gameplay part.

 

I liked how you minimized that clip and left it in the background and how you zoomed in later again. Also I personally like it if the proper gameplay part and funny clips/moments are separated like that, I usually do it like this myself. Could be edited more seriously but that applies to all apb montages I've seen/made.

 

Well done =)

Thanks. What do you mean by "edited more seriously"?

Syncing kills, using different colour corrections, playing around with panorama cropping & -keyframes, coming up with creative ideas such as cinematic scenes or other no-killing footage and adjusting/syncing them to the music, adding special effects (explosions), adding a creative intro (cinematic spot + motion tracking text), etc etc etc.

Maybe it's just me who likes to see stuff edited like that, some might call this 'overedited'. So don't take this as criticism, this might be just me, your style is completely fine.

 

Obviously I'm unable to reach my personal objective regarding montages myself but if you cannot conceive an idea of what I'm talking about, these would be examples where I gave quite my best.

I get it, thanks for clarifying. Personally I don't appreciate footage that is speed up, slowed down, stopped, re winded, restarted, cropped, enlarged, shaken and stirred constantly but I have enjoyed videos where it was used sparingly and it added something to the experience for sure - I might try to mess with that a little more in my next montage, not sure I can pull it off though. :P

Editing was nice as well as the montage, a tad too long though.

 

 

Also, I'd like to know the song names.It's a fair move to give credit to authors as well.

Jesus. These were some of the longest gunfights I've ever seen. The ones I encounter usually never get past the first reload for a 1v1. It's usually melt or get melted for me.

I wanted my second montage to be shorter than my first one, that didn't really work out. I'll try to make the next one shorter! Promise!

 

Songs used:

  1. Vicetone vs Popeska - The New Kings Ft. Luciana
  2. Mord Fustang - Pop (Futuristik Remix)
  3. Paula Abdul - Opposites Attract (Saints Row 4 Version)

I often run out of bullets, need to be able to exchange all the other consumables to ammo boxes!

Thanks. It's become somewhat of a sport for me, getting torch kills on golds. :D

Oh hey, this video recently broke 1K views which is pretty neat, especially considering I only have 30 subscribers - I think I have you guys to thank for getting so many views!

 

I've been toying with the idea of making another video with the small amount of unused clips I still have, finally got around to it this weekend!

 

 

Hope you enjoy!
