AMVS are all about flow scene selection and timing, you dont need effects if ur able to catch the emotion of the song you use, the effects only improve visual qualities, that is called "eye candy" but yea also u need to have patience, the more time u spend on your amv the better im becomes.

First of, NO SUBTITLES. That kills an AMV faster than anything else. Variety of clips is important to. Mood is also important. A general rap song to an important plot fight doesn't work. The pace of changing clips should fit the pace of the song. The key thing with effects is that it shouldn't distract from the AMV. In other words, everything this AMV has, also the AMV has a ton of spoilers:

Well in my opinion (and I've been around amv's for a very long long time), the best thing you want to do is to start off with the song. Songs can be inspiring. Once you've found your song, then think about what anime would best go with it. The song and the anime needs to be able to compliment each other. They need to be compatible. The video clips of the anime you have chosen needs to be high quality and no sub titles or channel icons. That really takes away from the overall quality and cause too much distraction. The best way to get high quality clips is to rip them from the dvd itself. Timing is everything! If you have clips that have any of the characters talking, try your best to match it to the song's verses. If the song's tempo suddenly changes from slow to fast, make sure the clips match the tempo change. Listen to the song and try to visualize the best clips for it. Work a verse at a time and then go back and look at it. Does it look right? Does that verse and the clip complement each other? If it does, go on to the next verse. Effects.... use effects accordingly. Don't go overboard, but don't be afraid to use them. Like fading, going from one scene to another different scene, fading or blacking out gives the viewer a bit of mental pause. Not fading a scene out and just letting it jump to another scene can cause the viewer to wonder 'what's going on?' or even worse like 'wow, they didn't even try'. Too much effects can ruin a amv just as well as not enough effects. So do the same with the effects as you do your clips and verses... check and recheck.

And one last secret.... the really good/great amv's takes weeks or even months to make. It takes careful planning and execution. It takes a lot of thought and devotion. And in the end, it will be enjoyed by all who view it.... truly enjoyed.

A great amv is the one you put most effort on, the most original masterpiece you can think of and put it on an amv, that is a GREAT AMV!

It's not only timing, effects, lipsync, flow, high definition and feeling on it. It has to be shows as an inspiration :3
