Footage from Five Centimeters Per Second
23.976 Frames per Second

Audio from Pendulum's Watercolor
1080 version contains FLAC audio - this is a specific area of interest, can you support FLAC or shall I use MP3?
other versions contain various MP3 bit-rates but If I can I'd like to submit a FLAC encoded variant.
The opening sequence during the song introduction/build-up has dialogue from the first episode, with the characters having a light conversation about cherry blossoms before one of the characters runs off.
The full video also has karaoke subtitles and a Japanese translation as I created the video with the intention of showing it to a few friends here and there, including Japan.
I was recommended to enter it in a competition, and was pointed to newyorkcomiccon.com.
I can upload a 640x360 with any audio format, depending on what you support.
I spent a day on the timed karaoke subtitles. Leave them or remove them?
Dialogue: yes or no?
If these two last aspects are likely to hinder me, I may as well not bother as I'd have to re-edit the whole opening and recompress the whole thing.
I've tried to e-mail this to them as well, but it keeps saying the e-mail doesn't exist. I really just want some critique on it as I just had the idea out of nowhere then two days later it's done.

Karaoke subtitles.. well, I'd probably remove them, but once again it's up to you, however I'd suggest you do so. They usually hinder videos in my experience.
If you need critique on a video, there are plenty of people that can give you it.
Video should be at least 480p.
Alrighty, well the song Watercolor has quite a build-up and it just doesn't really work with this particular anime so the dialogue fills the gap a little.
Karaoke subs - fair enough, it's more of a specific fan-base area of expertise...should/can I have a watermark of my name also? IE: Yiu korochko. The subbed version has it purely for online distribution but if it corrupts the visual layout at all, I can take it away for this particular contest.
Would you mind having a quick look?
Technically speaking, 640x360 is 480p...:confused: 480p goes back to Standard Definition where 4:3 was king (640x480) and any 16:9 footage was fit into the picture with letterboxing. HD standards have flipped it, where 4:3 fits into the 720p and 1080p with pillarboxing. To be safe, I'll just upload the 1080p version. Do you know if they support the FLAC audio format?

As I feared, an Anime Music Video competition with poor audio support...has happened to me in college as well.
848? That's a really weird resolution...mod16 capable but strange...
Be good if they had someone with VLC on a Windows machine at the backend of the projector/thing...
