    Is mp4 the same as mpg4? I rendered a trial snippet and main concept acc avc mp4 render renames itself as an mpg4 movie. Did I do something incorrectly?

    So do we have to submit our films on the 26th or can it be done sooner? If so when?

    No, you can upload anytime between now and midnight (Pacific Time) on October 26. That was the point of the announcement, to let you know the upload system hsd been activated.

    Be sure to read through all the information in the first post to ensure your entry won't be disqualified.

    Peace,
    Larry

    As far as I know, mp4 and mpg4 are the same thing, just different extensions. After it completes compressing, try renaming it to .mp4 and see if it still runs correctly.

    No problem. We try to provide more than a single day for uploads so that the server isn't beat to death with 50+ entries all uploading at the same time

    We accept anything 5 minutes or less, as the final compressed file. If you compress and it comes out to 5:01 then you will need to check your compression settings or your edit and see what you can tweak to get at, or below, 5:00 TRT.

    Peace,

    If you end up at 5:01 or 5:02 after compressing I'd suggest you use QuickTimePro to just trim the damn thing. It would be a shame to get the compression done and have to recompress everything. Some people aren't aware you can cut and paste and trim with QTPro without recompressing.
