more like, everyone necessary (admins, tracker people, etc.) were online at the time, so let's just push it out the door instead of waiting yet another day to start getting seeds in place. if we would've waited ahother cycle, you'd be starting your download in about 4-5 hours instead of finishing it 2 hours ago.>>2654
if someone wants to make a downsampled version they're more than welcome to. i try to aim high with the resolution and encoder settings so the necessary data gets out there and it's over with in one shot.>>2695
less shakycam this year means less keyframes and differentials for the encoder to pack into the file. there's also a tiny bit saved from the black borders on the 4:3 shots. xvid was also set to compress better instead of faster (it took around 8 hours to render and compress this year).>>2785
If there's any demand for the two videos from last year (panel/aftermath), I guess I can dig them up and seed them. Compared to this, last year's audio/video was a complete mess though.>>2793
that was the last thing i put in. i found my DV tape from last year and was like, what the heck.
