I managed to quickly put together a short teaser video of my dogstake/waterplay attempt IN the beach. Still waiting for the rest of the video bits to come in.


Enjoy Posted Image

BTW, thats not me just taking a dip in the water. Kite is dogstaked with the lines running both below and above the water. Made the whole setup super heavy as hell :)


That is one of the coolest things I've seen in a while.

I hope to not see any Revs sacrificed to the shark. Only because I'll have to hunt the shark down to get the kite from its belly Posted Image

FYI, the problem is with the FLASH uploader...

You should still be able to use the basic uploader, just have to turn off the "visual RTE editor" via your profile...

Working on fixing the RTE version, no ETA yet.

Posted Image I was at the doctor's office the other day and Jaws was playing in the waiting room, on VHS no less. There were younger, sick kids there. I asked the nurse who does the check-ins if she thought the movie was appropriate to play in front of the kids, and she said "What's wrong with Jaws?" Posted Image

I've got some more contest questions..... Thanks for the clarifications!

John mentions 1280 video.... I just got my first video camera and video editing program. Does 1280 mean 1280x720? Does the frame-rate I render to matter? Does the format I render to matter? There are so many choices........

Is there a maximum to the amount of video I can send in? Posted Image I don't want to overload the judges!

Have Rev, Will Travel

If you're mailing it in to Rev, the preferred format is probably MOV... It's easily created and handled by most video editing software.

Yes to 1280x720... But honestly, if your original is larger, go with the original size... It'll look best on DVD.

I'm not a video expert, sadly, not 100% sure on frame rate...

However, if my minimal understanding is correct, you'll want to match the same frame rate as the original footage you started with, to maintain quality.

If you go to a lower frame rate, you drop some frames (think old film that looks like this [][][][][][][][])...

If you use a higher frame rate than the original, it has to get creative in filling those new frames.

Can someone here confirm or correct that oversimplified explanation?

As far as uploading entries to YouTube, none of that matters as much, they can handle just about anything.

Thanks for the tips JB! I especially appreciate the help considering this is a Rev forum Posted Image

I totally get the frame-rate explanation - I'll render to the 30 fps the video is shot in, no need to use a fancy option with the video-editing program here.


Is there a maximum length for the video I enter into the contest? 20 minutes of video total? 30 minutes total? Or should it just be the very best 1-4 minutes I can muster?

Alright, just confirmed with the boss... Here are two important clarifications:

  • All video submissions for this contest should be a maximum of 10 minutes in length, this makes it attainable for everyone, and it will assure "the best shots" are used.
  • All video submissions should also be uploaded to Vimeo or YouTube, otherwise the judges will not be able to review them (geographical limitations).
If you don't want to share your video with the world, I know YouTube will allow you to upload it as "private - only viewable with the direct URL", it won't show up to the general public.

Hi John,
Can you specify the finale destination media ?
The videos which will be selected from the winners are going to be diffused on what sort of media exactly ?
Normal DVD or Blu-ray Disc ?
Thanks :blue_wink:

Hi Ben!!
This video review is a very good idea.

I will present the performance of my quad teams in Japan.
It's named Wind Ripper.

Please look this perfomance to three judges, and everyone.
