Honestly, I would love to know what you think.

In the past 3 weeks I've grown from 30 or so subscribers to over 100 and I would love some feedback about what I am doing.
I'd love to know if you have any advice or similar.
It is my first time making videos, only been doing it properly for a month or so and I would love your critique. :3

I watched this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b9ulVGNR3eM

I skipped around a bit, but I liked the intro with the electronic music. I've always wanted to pull off a montage for WoW but never really knew what to do. One of the things I noticed is that you switch frames off beat a lot. I'm not sure if you're even going for the beat synchronization, but from a presentation point of view, it would feel a lot better if you would switch frames on a beat or a half beat.

Other than that, I really like it. I'm purely on a design point of view cause I'm in no position to comment on gameplay or anything. xD

I did notice afterwards that it was slightly out of sync in the opening scene as I was changing with the music. I don't know what happened, atleast while I was editing the start it was perfect, some where along the line it got messed up.

I'll make sure to always double check before uploading next time, not sure how I missed it.

A trick you can do is slow down the footage so that it is easier to sync. :D

Not sure if you're into shooters, but I think this shows off that effect really well in some places. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I2aividvQLU

I watched the one you posted at the top...

If I had any suggestions for you it would be.

1- Maybe cut down on the intro a bit as it seemed to jump around for a bit longer than I would have typically expected.

2- I guess its a preference kind of thing but I think you might be zoomed a bit too far out and it looks like you enjoy a top view camera angle, most videos zoom in a bit more and are recorded from less of a top view angle but I understand if it is going to affect your play.

3- I think the best part was the arena match as IMO these videos are most useful with the commentary and hearing what other peoples communication sounds like. It wasn't that bad but maybe turn the music down slightly or turn the voices up slightly more when doing the arena.

Best of luck.

Here you go: http://www.arenajunkies.com/topic/222642-default-ui-scripts/
It has everything you'll need to learn the basics about using macros to change parts of the UI.
Personally all my stuff is in an addon that I've created, but youll get the same effect from just using a macro to hide the gryphons and ect. :)

Thank you all for your help and advice!
It means a lot to me that you would take the time out of your day to respond nicely and positively with stuff I can work on.

Cheers! :3
