    I believe i have uploaded successfully, but this is the first time, so I am unsure how to tell that the upload worked. I saw my files in the FTP folder, but do they play through, etc? AHHH I am stressing out!

    hmmmm half scale... I have a section that drops out a little when small because of compression. The scene has a ton of 1 pixel particles and when compressed too much they just disappear.

    I just PMed Jarred and asked if we couldl have
    480X320 for letterbox within 4:3
    480X270 for cropped 16X9
    and
    480X202 for 2.35:1
    EDIT: We call it 4:3 because we watch it on / it plays back correctly on 4:3 monitors.



    480 is the industry standard for large trailers and as long as the file size is under the 40ish MB limit - it shouldn't matter unless theirs some flash or streaming window or something that it will foul up. But if we are downloading it shouldn't matter.

    I liked it in Zombie fest when there was just a file size limit, not a video size, so you could compensate for issues like that.

    You need the extra resolution.

    Someone else might have artifacting problems and want a smaller file.

    Also we'll look like postage stamps next to teh HVX files, lol.

    We'll see what the big man says.

    fine 480 is good by me if you keep it under 40mb.

    Wouldn't letter box within a 4:3 be 480 X 360?

    360 is 3/4 of 480...

    but 4:3 isn't accurate actually -- thats a 640 X 480 file which is NTSC 4:3

    We really have NTSC 3:2 (720 X 480)
    So halfsacle of (320 X 240) doesn't equal 4:3 either, but 3:2

    So 3:2 (720 X 480) scales down to 480 X 320, not 360.

    If you open Quicktime 7 for example and just change 720 to 480 with the maintain aspect ratio checked it will pop down to 480 X 320.

    So if you just set the vertical size to 480, it will take care of itself in most instances. You only have to get our your caclulater if you want to crop to 16X9 or 2.35:1

    Does anyone else think that it might be a little unfair to have 720p HVX films competing with 320p DVX films? I don't mean to sound like I'm complaining, but why do the DVX films have to shrink their size, when they're already so much smaller? I know there's bandwidth concerns and all that, but shouldn't HVX types have to play by the same rules? At least it'd be more fair to let the DVX people take advantage of the 40MB in the way they choose.

    If so, I would upload a 720x480 under 40mb file. That would rock!

    Yeah, the thought crossed my mind. If anything it sets the videos apart and says, "this was made with an HVX, and that with a DVX" from the get go. That ain't cool. It's almost like class basketball or something. I think it would be neat to have everyone on the same level playing field. The HVXers are already going to have an advantage when it comes to color sampling 4:2:2 vs 4:1:1 right? Now resolution too?

    I'm just saying it would be neat to go from film to film not knowing what camera was used really. It would be neat to see a DVX film and wonder "Wow that looked so good, I wonder if that dude was using an HVX?!" instead of a dramatic jump in resolution beating it into your head from file to file. Get it?

    Oh well, no biggie I guess. It just seems a little odd.
