Anime Expo Idol 2008 Video Is Now Available Featured

Written by 

Well, after about a week of swearing at this software and finally getting everything I wanted to do to it done, I have finally managed to encode the Anime Expo 2008 Idol Competition (thanks be to Nyaa Torrents for hosting the link).

It was a tough competition this year, everyone having practiced long and given their best; as such, I hope my efforts at taking this video honor their effort at least in some small way. It's a larger overall frame size, 704x400...I'm uncertain why the software determined that to be optimal, but it worked out well when I previewed it. Bitrate is about 3,500kb/sec at 24fps which should be DVD quality for those wish to transcode it. Unfortunately where we were recording from, what you see is the max magnification my camera was capable of. It's good enough, but I'd have really liked some better close ups of some of the participants. I'll have to see about getting a doubler later.

I hope you all enjoy it as much as I enjoyed shooting it.
