you certainly have a very good point there. however I'm making a machimina video with my character acting out various things, etc. I wanted to make it seem like a 3d version of a star trek episode, but the UI would have ruined that effect that I was looking for. so that's why I asked about things like that.
Your editing and plot is very nicely done and the Japanese music does make it feel very serene and epic at the same time..
One piece of advice is that you notice the recorded framerate is very low? This is quite normal and here is the method to reduce the stuttering between each frame without having to buy a new computer:
1. Record longer clips than usual
2. Speed up each clip to 1.3 to 1.6x speed
3. Publish the video at a higher than normal framerate for added smoothness - this will increase your filesize but the quality and playback smoothness is greatly enhanced.
4. For moving action scenes like ground combat, turn down the graphical details. Smooth motion is more relevant for such scenes - no one needs to count how many pixel shaded blades of grass there are on screen, they will just slow down your recording.
5. Try to 'dogfight' the enemy as Picard does, instead of sitting still and taking enemy fire. I usually just do the TNG style 'sweeping through phaser arcs' maneuver.
ps. I also like the Goth makeup on all your officers and the captain, who looks like a vampiress :3
