Even though you said on youtube that this probably was your last cs movie, I'm going to give you some constructive criticism.

The music is way to slow and calm and there are barely anything to sync your frags to. The frags are mediocre, but I've made a lot of movies with just half decent frags so I know how it is. In those cases you need to do something more than just have the frags present themselves. A powerful song with great sync would makes a big difference to content like this.

The wallhack and white walls effects just seem out of place. They don't have any purpose and does not look good. Apart from these two there were no effects, which sometimes can be nice, but as I said, with these frags you would need something more to bring the movie to life.

Also, a lot of people prefer not having to see the hud in movies. This is of course a matter of taste, but I think the majority would vote for no hud.

Good luck with your next movie, if you decide to make another one!

thank you! I was trying to improve after my previous movie but looks like I didn't got what I wanted to achieve.. The thing with effects is I don't really like em, I prefer having all clean and about the white wall and wallhacks I was trying to use them for the first time but had no ideas how to make it more interesting.

Hud and cameras man. Both bad. Always remove the hud if possible, you can add any relevant info (like money, ammo count and such) in post. The cameras were static or horribly moving - just look at other people do and replicate.

Trial and error :) Just give it another shot and show it to some of your friends before releasing it. Sometimes you go blind when editing a movie and will need someone elses eyes to see what is good and what is bad.

ignoring the editing part, the fragpart was horrible, i mean like its every match standard frags, but i appreciate your hard work put into this i do know how much time it consumes to edit such long and standard actions with many cameras
