Re: AWA pro thoughts/followups?

I was actually kind of surprised that motherlover that won for best comedy in pro couldn't be screened. There was no nudity, all the audio was bleeped and even the graphics were censored. Add on the fact that the song was from Saturday night live so essentially basic cable friendly (albeit late nig...

Re: AWA pro thoughts/followups?

On another sidenote: would anyone on AWA staff object to me broadcasting the awards on ustream or other service for the folks who didn't get to go to awa to watch? On general principle, I don't think there'd be any issue especially if the focus is on the action up front as a broadcast of the awards...

Re: AWA 2011 Pro Video Discussion Thread

I also liked the title screen in the VAT so if you came in during a video you could see what was going on at a glance. I think that was there last year as well but I guess I noticed it more this year. Glad to hear it. It was a last minute addition by me last year and went over decently enough, desp...

Re: AMV .Org App... go get it!

Pretty good experience so far, thanks. Comments and critiques: Open the program, log in, "You have pending stars," blah blah, hit done and...you're back at the login window.

Re: AWA 2011 - Contest deadline dates

Hrm, something might have been left out in the rules rewrite. In the past (and I assume still, in the spirit of blind judging) the Masters entry was also required to be blinded (for judging purposes) with the option of including a second version with title card info (for public display). I'll ask ji...

That's a question that jingoro, the director, needs to address. Email him at videoart@awa-con.com just in case he doesn't see the forum post.

Re: AWA 2011 - Contest deadline dates

Expo is more or less a broad, free-for-all Exposition of anything and everything Video Art (note that we say AMV a lot, but honestly the VAT will take anything that's a combination of video+audio and is fan created. Anime, live action, original animation, even original live action!). As Pwolf indica...

Re: AWA 2010 - Pro downloads active; Expo 4 days left, August 20

While it's generally true (but not universal), it's much better to have a computer or a dedicated scaler adjust the resolution than it is to trust that the manufacturer didn't cut corners and install the cheapest, lousiest piece of garbage scaler in a projector/TV. Anyway, godix is kinda getting to ...

Re: AWA 2010 - Pro downloads active; Expo 4 days left, August 20

Everything being said is spot on in my experience, relative to the situation at AWA, and, as I understand it, what other cons have to deal with. You can get away with a higher definition projector, at a lower 'quality' with regards to brightness/contrast in smaller rooms for a number of reasons, inc...

Okay, in an attempt to derail some of the feeces flinging, the complete and unabridged winner's list.

Re: 2010 AWA Editor's dinner

Oh....er....um....speaking of weddings.... Apparently a couple that met at AWA is getting married AT AWA, specifically the lobby on Thursday afternoon. I THINK they'll have cleared out and gone to the reception (which should be elsewhere) by the time you start to gather for the dinner, but just be a...

Re: AMV Encoders - A/V Sync Test

MPC-HC has no transcoding feature, so if you want to get an accurate representation of DirectShow based output you'll have to run it through GraphEdit. After the con I might try and see if I can add uncompressed output as a 'render' option in my program if you think that'd be useful.

Re: AWA 2010 - Pro downloads active; Expo 4 days left, August 20

We've got a list of awards up from the last three years so you can get an idea. The Expo award list is dynamic, but we try to hit a few 'core' categories including those listed in the awards while expanding to about 20 total (or as time permits) sharing the love around as needed. We make up categori...

Re: ּ~=פ÷ΞЖΞ÷¤×=~ּ AMV Hell 5 ּ~=פ÷ΞЖΞ÷¤×=~ּ

Is there a tentative time for when Hell 5 will showcased at AWA? Hopefully it won't clash timeframes with big Friday night hits like Anime Hell and Totally Lame Anime. To my knowledge, AMVHell5 is scheduled for 7ish Friday. I don't have info on those other events, but it's certainly early enough to...
