I haven't made any videos in a long time but I decided to once again give it a go. After a couple of weeks work I now have something to contribute(instead of just lurking all the time). You can watch the video HERE or you can watch it right below.
I learned a lot trying to replicate the effects used in the original introduction. There is a lot of animated multi layered masking as well as a whole ton of text effects and transitions. I think I made the new intro pretty faithfully to the original and I did my best to include relevant clips and the correct credits.
It was certainly a lot of work but also a bit of fun. I hope you guys enjoy it. If you're interested in taking a look I also made some other short videos back when the original series was airing. You can find my youtube channel here.
Also keep an eye out for Yumi's facepalm, it was fun clip to sneak in there.
