...Introduction
Good evening dear fellow editors. I present you project „X Ghosts“. Please follow the project document (look below for the link) to navigate threw all the information and find what you want and need to know about this project and to be part of it. This thread is here to keep you up to date about participants, used sources and songs and to provide a short introduction. I encourage you to have a look at the whole document. This file contains all the basic information you need to know. Feel free to spread the word with this .pdf file or with a link to the project thread.

The idea of this project came when I listened once again threw a lot of great songs of the band Nine Inch Nails (NIN) and I thought about starting a project which is based on the songs of NiN's album Ghosts I-IV. This project will be a collection of tracks based on songs of this album. Thanks for all the suggestions and input in the interest gauge thread. It really helped to make a much more clear vision of how the project should be.

As said the project is based on the songs of the album Ghosts I-IV by NIN. It's a collection of 36 unique experimental songs which are all published under the Creative Commons license. This CC license makes this album avaible for free and for non commercial media work. You can download all these wonderful instrumental songs under the link profided in the chapter Music Source Download.

Note: You're also allowed to use remixes of this song from the website remix.nin.com as long as they follow the rules & guidelines in the project document.

This project will not have a fixed mix. It's simple: You pick a song of the album and you make a video track. This track will be part of a sequence (collection) of other tracks set to the same album. This project doesn't need a mix. I want people to have freedom to submit something or let it be. I also don't want to be a slave of a stare mix. Imagine somebody doesn't finish his track. The whole project relies on it and it won't be finished until this track is finished. No I really don't want this to happen. … btw.: Greetings to the Project Gateway team =P

I don't see a problem with not mixing the songs. The album is a quite round one. The songs almost have the same kind of atmosphere and characteristica and go hand in hand. The „mix“ will be in the end just the tracks with a short pause between them. Don't worry about it.

The whole information and rules of the project can be found in this .pdf file. I really don't see a reason to rewrite everything into this thread again so please download it:

Thank you for joining, but I'm really sorry to tell you that this project is in 720p. I still write you into the participant list.

I point at rule of the MEP #0: Convince me. If there are enough demands for SD ressolution we will do it in SD, but personally I would love to see this done in 720p.

Personally I searched a lot for soft subs version of Ergo Proxy in HD to buy on the internet. Maybe somebody has done it already. :| I'll try to find something for you.

I'm actually VERY interested in this music now that I've given it a listen to. I really like Ghosts 1, and I'd like to attempt it with Cardcaptor Sakura and their more darker episodes and do some coloring effects to make it less pink and sparkly, so it'd fit more with what I'm suspecting will be a dark video. But if you're not a fan of the source, just let me know.

Protip: ergo proxy was released on DVD only in japan from what I can see. Any and every HD release is an upscale, likely from a TV raw even - a less than perfect choice.

Mhm... I think you made a typo. Didn't you mean Bluray? I remeber one HDTV rip that didn't looked that bad. I'll check it out again when I have time for it. Thx for pointing out!

Does somebody maybe know a good process to upscale footage? Some sort of Avisynth methods? :|

@Dar: The source has a nice drawing style. I'll note you when you decided for a track.

@Code: Cardcaptor Sakura is also avaible in 720p? I didn't know that. I look forward to your track. Good look with the colour corrections!

bahhh, 720p narrows down my footage a lotlotlot.....
ohwell I'll just observe and see what goes on and what's possible for me....

anyway just wanted to note that there are in fact Ghosts 37 and Ghosts 38....
Those two tracks were a hidden bonus on the limited editions of Ghosts I-IV....
Anyway I can upload them if there's interest!!!

Oh wait. Upon futher review, I realize I was a twit and this won't be possible with Sakura [doesn't fit the conditions of the video quality]. Sawright though, better to have found out now than later. I'll look over my collection, but I doubt I have anything to meet the conditions. So let Ghosts 1 back open.

fu.... I missed them. Can you provide us with lossless versions of the songs?


If my Avisynth wouldn't have been down at the moment I probably would have tested some upscalling processes. Damn
