You might want to mention if people need to letterbox widescreen videos or not. Other than that it seems legit.

letterbox widescreen footage? :uhoh: my resolutions are 720x480 when i throw them into Zarxgui but i change my sample aspect ratios to 16:9 when i compress. is that acceptable, Deuce?

Letterbox is fine as long as the resolution is no larger than 720x480.

I think you misunderstand the point of the question...the point of letterboxing would be if the playback method won't read widescreen flags and the content would be played squished...so letterboxing will allow the video to be played back with the proper aspect ratio. Considering what you're asking for, I think it would be safe to assume that people who have widescreen videos need to letterbox it.

Requirements:
> 29.97 fps -OR- 23.976 fps with 3:2 pulldown
> Non-Interlaced video (Progressive scan)

There is some contradiction there. Why flag 23.976 fps files for for 3:2 pulldown if you are requiring 29.97 fps progressive? Performing 3:2 pulldown creates 29.97 fps interlaced video. Also many of the formats you accept have no mechanism to flag a progressive 23.976 fps file for 3:2 pulldown. I suspect this is a rule oversight from the MPEG-2 days when we all used to submit that way because output was interlaced.

If you indeed want 29.97 fps progressive and 23.976 fps with 3:2 pulldown when possible I would suggest rewording these rules to:

"Progressive 29.97 fps or 23.976 fps. If your file format supports it please flag 23.976 fps files for 3:2 pulldown on playback" This may help avoid some confusion.

If you want nothing but progressive video then simply specify:
"Progressive 29.97 fps or 23.976 fps video only."

The less lines the entrants have to read is usually better.

I sent my Time Twitch video in but I got a few emails that changed the way to submit. Did my entry eventually go through?

Sorry, but I haven't.
Even looked in the spam folder.

Had to make an "executive decision."

The deadline is being extended to January 11, 11:59pm due to the holidays.

That is all.

Looks like I better make a comedy video or something, the two categories I entered have the most. It's 3 submissions max if I read correctly right?
