Cynic, just so you know ... Oct 1st is Sunday NOT Monday. Didn't want you thinking you had an extra day there or something & miss it. :)

question b4 i upload

on the .mov file I right click goto propetieson winxp(and get info on OSX i have both) its says the file is 49.9MB. then is says size on disk is 52.3 megs. Doing the math 1024=1 meg 49.9 is correct... if i do Hard drive math 1000= 1 meg then its 52.3 megs. I just want to make sure that my upload is good to go

I would think that a base 2 (2^10) approach would apply as the limit was specified as 50 MB not 50 Million Bytes.

I know that you want an anamorphic .m2v file, but have you specified if it must be CBR or VBR or our choice?

Jarred Land
09-28-2006, 11:31 PM
CBR please.. or else its gonna go through a rencode.

Norm Sanders
09-28-2006, 11:32 PM
My guess, Blaine, is that is up to the user ... CBR vs. VBR simply changes the size of your file by being constant or changing the bit rate where it's needed most. I typically prefer CBR myself, but that's just me.

EDIT: Yeah, what Jarred said ... CBR. :)

Can I just call my file 'LITMDF' since the full title is Love Is The Most Deceptive Feeling???

That is for the part of the movie title...LITMDF-JohnLahanis....etc

ps. if you get confused, that's the one to compete, the door between will be up for exhibition (if I finish it in time)

VBR is okay for .mov file.
CBR is required for .m2v file.

Right?

Jarred,

Just so I'm clear, the h.264 is a Quicktime file less than 50MB? Is an .MP4 OK or does it have to be .MOV? And the mpeg 2 file, any size limitation? The mpeg 2 file is for the DVD?

Thanks,

RobertE

FCP 4.5 HD doesn't allow me to export mpeg2. Is there an alternative export option I can use for the DVD? Thanks for the help.

I am trying to upload, but it says that the server closed the connection before it starts the upload.

I can see a couple of zip files already uploaded.

Is the ftp taking files?

hello. AAAAARRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!

all right. i'm using CyberDuck to upload. the file is 134mb and i get to about 40mb or so and it keeps disconnecting from the server. something about "broken pipe"
i have a slow connection here and it uploads at about 4-5 kb/s so that's 7 hours of uploading. i've tried 5 times now and the same thing happens each.


someone please help me.

Can one of the Mods make this a sticky for the 100+ folks that may be looking for it? I'd hate to miss out on watching someone's film because they didn't know where to look to upload. :beer:

I'm using fetch and I can't seem to connect. I will keep trying. Is it just being bombarded right now? Does anyone have any ideas?

Jarred,

Can we submit now and if there are technical problems or we have a better quality compression, submit a 'fix' later?

khmuse

Haven't uploaded yet (not done compressing and zipping up) but will we be soon. I was wondering if we will be able to confirm the presence of our file on the server? Or is it setup write only?

We have until tomorrow at midnight... if we're around. I'm supposed to be out of town tomorrow. This process is going to take longer than the production of our movies.

I'm uploading now. I hope that the files are acceptable?

Jarred, will you be checking the files and letting us know if they're O.K. for presentation? The .mov and the .mpg 2?

Jarred Land
09-30-2006, 06:41 PM
Im grabbing them off the server now.. checking them as we go. Ill let you guys know if there was something screwed along the way.

Robert Eldon

Jarred,

Just a thought... would it make sense to upload the H.264 files first, so that we could watch them? And then have a seperate deadline for the mpeg-2 files, after everyone has uploaded their 'less than 50MB' files?

There would be a lot more bandwidth and time available for all of the entries uploading before the deadline.

Just a thought?

Hey Jarred, you should be able to adjust the idle times of the server.

Hey Jarred, you should be able to adjust the idle times of the server.

unfortunately server side timeouts are no longer effective as most clients have simulated activity packets to avoid being idle, even when they are.

im a bit confused.. i thogut the entries had to be 50mb, so why are some of the already uploaded vids on the ftp in the hundreds?

Blaine
10-01-2006, 02:28 PM
The online entry is restricted to 50MB. The DVD files (m2v) are going to be bigger, and they're being uploaded together.

Jarred Land
10-01-2006, 03:43 PM
guys dont worry about not making it.. ill make sure you all get them uploaded if your having problems. There are a crapload of people on the FTP right now, so i know its slow for yall.
