What are AMVs?

AMV means Anime-Music-Video. Videoclips cut together with a fitting song, like the music clips known from chart songs. Often used are clips and scenes from animes or japanese video games. They should fit together with the song and perhaps even tell a little story which also fits to the song.

If you search for inspiration or did not understand what an AMV is then search for the term 'AMV' at a video page of your choice.

With which tools can I create an AMV?

First you need anime video clips an your comouter. You can cut, link and align them with the music using video editing software. But of cause it is not as easy as it sounds! ; )

Here you find a list of video editing software.
