Hold Me Up

Postby CrackTheSky » Sun Jun 08, 2014 1:50 pm

Hey all I made a thing and I think it's a decent thing and it's a thing I want to share with you so here:


Also, if you're going to complain about the visual quality of the thing please read the thing's video description first.

Thanks!

Really dug this. Not only does it feel totally evocative of a particular time and place (I'd actually love to see more videos like this being made now), but it's a really fun video in it's own right. Really fucking great work, and honestly one of my favourite videos from this year so far.

Thanks Crack in the Sky!

I feel much the same about oldschool AMVs, and I can't get enough Kare Kano AMVs.
This will fit neatly right next to Kusoyaros Build Me Up Buttercup (how you mentioned in the viddesc) and Mabaroshis Far & Away .. yeah no dl HERE YOU GO

Thanks again,

Thank you! I'm especially glad you felt like it came from a particular time/place, to me that was the most important element in making this video. I'm probably going to be making more videos in this style, it was so much fun and I'm really pleased with the result.

Gaaaaaahhhh THANK YOU <3 I actually PM'd Maboroshi just over a week ago asking for a copy of Far & Away because it's the one video of his that's NOT on his website. He didn't give it to me but he said that he would upload it to his site...and he hasn't yet. SO GLAD someone has this, thank you for sharing! And thank you for watching and commenting!

I miss videos like this.

Only complaint: the encode should've been for Video CD. :P

Teach me, master.

Free version of TMPGEnc with the 'NTSC Film' (for 23.976 fps) template under VCD is the easiest way. Or more technically, 1150kbps CBR* MPEG-1 @ 352x240 (352x288 for PAL) and 224kbps 44.1 kHz MP2. If in doubt in regards to compliancy, get an old version of Nero and try to add the .mpg file to a Video CD project. I doubt current versions still have that option; I might be wrong, though.

*at least according to spec; XVCDs that used VBR may or may not work in standalone players. This is technology from 1993, after all.


1150kbps + 224kbps = 1374 kbps / 8 = 171.75 KiB/s * 60 sec = 10.305 MiB per minute

That old '10 MiB per minute' rule that was so ubiquitous back in the Xvid era? It was a direct product of VCD conventions whereby a standard CD would hold 80 minutes of content, as the intended maximum duration of a VCD was set to match the maximum duration for music CDs.

Lol wasn't actually expecting a response for this but I s'pose I should have known better...being that you're a video knowledge database and all :P I'll try this for my next project, which is in the same vein as this one. Thanks :D
