Track list has been updated and an update has been made to the project's news section. Cross posted here:

Alright, everyone who has requested a track that I have been able to confirm has gotten their wav for editing.

That being said, we still have room for 19 more people to jump on in. And if you haven't seen it yet, the beta dates have been pushed back to allow for more time for completion, so those of you who are worried about having too much to do right now still have plenty of extra time to complete your track.

I do however suggest that if you are wanting one you take a moment to request the track soon. I do plan to open the MEP up to it's current members to take on a second track if they desire as soon as I receive their first proof of concept beta.

Keep in mind also that these beta deadlines are a guide for how I would like everyone to progress with their track. It is there to guide you along so that you don't wind up having to whip something together at the last minute in order to get your final track in on time. That being said, you don't have to strictly abide by it, I'm not going to actually cut anyone for missing a deadline. However don't take my patience for granted. I do expect to have this thing finished, and on time for at the very least an AWA debut.

Get your requests in! And get to work! :P

I said I was going to get more information posted to the site, and I mean to come through with that promise. So I'll be updating the project website with more information, including guides and extra info. I will also be sending out the first round of status checks as well.

As a preview of some of what I'm going to get up, here is the upscale script that I have tested out and have seen it work. Keep in mind this script is meant to upscale your final product, after proper filtering has been done. I haven't tested this on a source that wasn't already clean yet, but I imagine it will not look as good. Thanks to Mirkosp for providing the script to me.

Code: Select all
spline36resize(1280,720)
limitedsharpenfaster(edgemode=1,smode=4,strength=75)
awarpsharp(depth=8)
vmtoon(sharpen=false,thinning=0,strength=35,luma_cap=203,threshold=8)

well with a depth 8 it's pretty light, it won't thin too much, just about right. <.<

I've updated the track selection with new editors as well as freed up some tracks where editors have dropped out. We still have about 17 tracks left unspoken for.

I will be sending out updates here soon for those of you who haven't contacted me directly about your betas. We are at the Proof of Concept Deadline.

Ok, seriously, I've been a bit lazy here, but I'm still planning on going forward with this MEP. I've seen some great betas so far which is making me more fired up about this. I will be sending out updates soon as we're in the Working Beta stage. I wanna see more of these working betas.

So get to work, and the rest of you, sign up and take a track!

Yes, we are still alive and kicking. I've gotten betas from some of you involved but quite a few have yet to provide Proof of Concepts. I will be pinging everyone shortly to ensure that you all are still committed to finishing your tracks and to get betas out of you all.

I've added a few new editors to the mix and taken off a few drops that I was able to confirm. If you're taking part of the MEP do try and get some of your friends to join.

As of this time I am debating removing the final requirement of 720p for everyone. Essentially, I want to know how many members are actually editing at 720p and how many are planning to upscale their final video. If the number of upscalers outweighs the number of native editors I will probably decide to take 480p entries as they are, as well as 720p. This by no means will require that those of you editing at 720p need to downscale your finals, I will gladly accept the 720p versions. This only means that I will plan on having a 720p and 480p release, and those of you who submit at 720p will have better looking tracks in the end as your tracks will already be at 720p and need to be upscaled to fit.

I'm editing at 720p (I'm actually downscaling from 1080p)
...I suppose I should edit some more

Alright, for those of you who like banners we now have sig banners and banners that can go on websites if you so desire. You can check them out in the links section on the DPRN site: http://ngsilver.com/DPRN/links.htm

Also, I have posted new upscale scripts that are much faster and produce a much higher quality upscale. These scripts can also be found on the links/help section. But here they are for quick reference:

Code: Select all
nnedi2_rpow2(2,2,3,true,"spline36resize",1280,720)
limitedsharpenfaster(ss_x=1.3,ss_y=1.3,Smode=3,strength=24,overshoot=0)

Code: Select all
spline36resize(1280,720)
limitedsharpenfaster(ss_x=1.3,ss_y=1.3,Smode=3,strength=24,overshoot=0)

It should be noted that the nnedi2 script will be very slow. The quality it produces however in the end is better then the second script. It's really up to you which version you decide to go with in the end. The second script on my PC produces a video that without other filters can be watched in real time and on my older single core PC in near real time, so if you want to see how well your video can look with this script that is the one to test out with and make your decision as to which you will use and if you feel the need to use any other filters to further clean up the footage.

For those of you needing or wanting access to FTP to submit your betas let me know and I will give you the information. You will be able to download other user's betas as well and offer advice on them.
