FYI, I've added an updated list of guidelines/rules to Ben's first post in this topic. ;)




Thanks again for the clarifications JB!
Nothing worse than entering a contest and finding out that you entered inappropriately......

Polo, they'll be using regular DVD, for distribution to stores as demo media for customers.

Got it Kojima-san, arigato... We'll consider your video. ;)

Thank you John for your answer about the regular DVD. So, in this case the max resolution that accept this media is 720 x 480 (NTSC) or 720 x 576 (PAL).
Why asked videos in high resolution (1280 x 720, or 1920 x 1280) ?
Maybe it's only for another one destination as Youtube ?

Other thing. If the final destination is a regular DVD :
You say that it would be better to not change the "frame rate" to avoid the problems you described perfectly in your message, above. But I think these problems can not be avoided.
Let me explain: If the finale destination is a regular DVD, a choice will have to be made for the final standard (NTSC or PAL). A priori, for the United States, it will be the standard NTSC (30 fps). And like the contest is international, some videos will arrive in PAL standard (25 fps). (And also 24 fps for HD progressive videos.)
In any cases, conversions of the "frame rate" will must be made on some videos. (Except if the winners are only persons who have sent videos in NTSC :) )
I don't know what is the solution :blink:

Polo, I'm only trying to coordinate (and translate) for Ben here... Your technical knowledge of video is clearly superior, I don't have the answers to some of this.

Ultimately though, the important thing is to get good quality videos online where the judges can view them.

Once winning footage is selected, Ben can work with the flier(s) to get a size and format that will work for the end purpose.

This is the reason for keeping the original film in it's best quality, so it can be used *anywhere* at any time in the future.

Is my explanation clear?

Thanks for the questions, good ones, all.

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.


Hi!!

Yes John, your explanation is clear. Thank you.
In fact, as I said above, me neither I have no response for some compatibility problems. particularly for the frame rate.

Just want to clarify why I asked what will be the final media : It's to eventually permit to persons who don't have HD material to be allowed to participate, with their low quality videos. (Of course, at least with a regular DVD quality.)
It was only for that :)

Of course, if the possibilities of diffusion must be multiple (DVD, Blu-ray Disc, Youtube HD, etc.), I understand that at least a resolution of 720p is requested.

Very nice performance, I enjoyed the video. I aspire to the level of precision your team shows.

Just FYI to those with kids . . . . the music did not bother me, but I probably won't let my son watch the video (with the sound on) as there are some lyrics that are not kid-appropriate (at least in my house).

Got another contest question...

Since we must publish the video online to be judged (YT, Vimeo, etc.)..... Should we mail in our entries before judging is finished?

Well . . . here's my first attempt at video. Don't want Ben getting upset!

Wish the pilot was better . . . . but I'm reasonably happy with where I am for a land-bound midwest flyer with only a bit over a year of part-time quad line . . . I just have a long way to go to catch up . . . . better get out flying again!

[url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_KNszOF1Bjg"]http://www.youtube.com/[color="#880000"]watch?v=_[/color]KNszOF1Bjg[/url]

I'll post some more later . . . my son really wants me to post up some video of him flying, because as soon as I told him about this contest, he wanted to enter!

Ben, this isn't like shooting video of a wedding, graduation, or a baby being born - Revolution deserves only the very best video I can capture!

So what's the fine line between awesome cool flying :blue-music: and . . . um . . . discouraging the hell out of the rest of us mortals? :kid_cussing: :kid_cussing: :kid_cussing: :kid_brooding:

Seriously though, I enjoyed that a lot.

OK, so I've missed the WCRC since it's sold out . . . when is the WCURKFC (West Coast Urban Rev Kite Flying Clinic)?

The trick with doing an urban clinic is that I can only take 1-2 people out at time due to the nature of the places we fly, and how much personal attention is required to teach in them.

I'm game if folks are interested, you'd learn LOTS, but it'd just be 2-3 of us at a time.

:( Although the contest deadline is a couple weeks away, I fear that I have run out of time to capture and edit video.

Here's my entry, it's definitely long-winded, but got all 3 of my Revs in Posted Image: -

[url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=onK-GIeVe5U"]http://www.youtube.c...h?v=onK-GIeVe5U[/url]

Just in case the above doesn't work: http://www.youtube.c...h?v=onK-GIeVe5U

Thanks for watching! Posted Image
Play it over some decent speakers if possible, the second song in particular has an amazing bass-line.

Ben, I'm sending the clips in, tomorrow, with no titles/transitions/music, just the cuts, I'll include a copy of the above fully produced entry just in case.

Have Rev, Will Travel
