What the vid contains: Mainly solo and some (very) small gang pvp, mainly conisting of ankaa t1 frigate gangs, and shows severe recklessness at occasions ;)
About the vid: It's been a long time since i've made a vid now, and i coulnd't keep saving up more footage now, since
I've used a little over 500 GB of fraps to make this vid and my HD was getting almost full...
The vid shows a lot of how life in low sec is. The vid contains no ganks except a few few second clips every here and there to make it fit. It has several heartpounding fights throughout the vid as well :)
There's a target overview on lower left part that tells what vs what and occasionally strategic info.

All that's left to say is, Welcome to low sec, and enjoy!


Vid stats:
Type: MKV file
Lenght: 43 min
Size: 980MB
Other stats: Frapsed at 1680x1050, encoded at 75%.
Quality: High (you can read overview and local)
Speed: 3x and 4x, and a very few 2x scenes.

NOTE: If you don't have a player that can play mkv files you need to do the following:
You'll need the CCCP (codec pack) or VLC (standalone player) in order to play the video. Also note you need a pretty fast computer to play it back without stuttering. If your computer is too slow to play the video at full speed, download this codec pack and install *only* the included CoreAVC. If you have the CCCP or FFDshow already installed, disable H.264 decoding in its video codec settings to activate CoreAVC. Note that VLC does not support CoreAVC.

Vid contains a few tiny errors but nothing big.

Ships flown:
Retribution (wrongly written as punisher (only a few short scenes), sorry)
Kestrel (rockets)
Amarr Navy Slicer
Drake (heavy missiles, t2 ham's not yet trained :/)
*i think that was all*

I'd love feedback, so please give when you've watched! :) (Also i would love if you could specify what parts of the vid (or all :P) you want more of! :)) Thanks!

ps. the part of where i'm ransoming a pod, i know i ended fraps a bit too early there, but if you slow it down you'll see i unlock him.

Also, thanks to kil2 for helping me with ecnoding and chribba for helping me get eve-files to work.

also, im gonna keep my vid lenghts to 20'ish mins from now...

Awesome YARRRR!!

Particularly fun for me to watch as both my main and before that my young, carefree trial alt can be seen dying/smacking in local (not at adriaans of course!) at various points in that vid Embarassed

The vid shows a lot of how life in low sec is
I would agree with this comment, this truly falls under the classification of documentary. Minmatar low-sec is a lot of fun I remember Twisted Evil however this video could have been half the length, or a little less than half. Not every fight in here was vid worthy, but I know how it is when you don't want to throwaway cool footage. Some fights were sped up so fast it seems like stuff was just exploding and I couldn't really enjoy what was happening. To me, this was a fast-forward documentary of your day-to-day low-sec life, and at 43 minutes its just too much to watch at blazing/blurr speed. Given that the footage is 80% rifter and thrasher (during the first 14 minutes i watched), there are tons of 10-20second supersped up clips that were hard to enjoy because it went by so fast.

If i was in your corp, or fighting against you in the majority of clips, I think that is really your audience for this video. For the rest of the community, I'd have slowed things down a bit moar, and been moar selective in what makes the final video. You have a ton of great content, a ton of not-so-great content, and the production quality if the video is fantastic btw, one of the few opening sequences I don't just skip over. I think if you took 15-20 minutes of highlights, don't speed over 2x, and made that into a vid, it would turn out awesome. I just can't get through all 43 minutes of this and I am sure I am missing some even better footage than what I saw during the first 14 :(

Osiris Occido has a great basis of correctness in his comment.

I can't add much to what he's saying.

I think most people don't usually value frig-size fights that much unless it's something really breathtaking. And dumping down a load of these in 10-15 minutes straight is a bit excessive if you know what I mean :)

I know you're enthusiastic (as I was when releasing my first 2 or 3 movies) about making a vid with tons of exlosions but you'd better be more fastidious in the fraps you choose.

I've watched 13.45 so far and I feel I just need to have a rest now to get back to it later on :)
That's definately NOT the effect moviemaker wants to achieve.

I'll update my message after having seen the rest.

Its decent video, but tbh over 75% of the footage is filler and downright boring. I really don't want to watch you just kill pods, there was at least 4 clips where you kill a pod under sentries, yes its funny for you, but really its not that entertaining to watch.
Ransoming a pod, also not fun to watch, i know you want to show everyone your an honourable pirate and all but propaganda doesnt make for a good video.

The flying around avoiding the blob clips and or clips where you just die to the blob without really achieving anything are also not necessary. They just take up time, are boring and just detract from the quality pvp that is in the video. We know the FW blobs are out there, yes its lame, but its doesnt need to be in the video.

There is about 12 mins of really solid pvp contained in 43 mins. Its hard to justify me keeping a GB file on my HD for that.

Also too much power metal! Razz 43mins of it except one offspring song is just too much!

The good fights that are in the vid are top notch but its need more of them and a lot less filler.

Sorry m8, some fight was good but ...
1) You were doing a lot of mistakes in fights (not aligned in pod killing under sentries etc...) even that you are surviving them ...
2) Better to choose best fights and make a vid, it will be 1/2 or 2/3 shorter, but more entertaining.
3) WTF was in that comments, format that crap a little please ...

Small advice - it's better to have passive modules hidden, because they will speculate over your fittings :)

Sorry to being harsh i hope you will do next time a little better ;P
