Re: PTC 1. The next step.

well, did some digging for what it's worth.. the torrent seems to be registered with http://denis.stalker.h3q.com:6969/announce i'm using transmission on osx: i get a connection with somebody in canada (toronto?) on rogers cable using Bittorrent as a client, and sometimes with somebody in the UK (lo...

Re: PTC 1. The next step.

well, it works somehow, but it seems not optimal to me.. at the moment my SD download stopped at 280MB and the HD file at 24MB both with 0 peers showing. i suspect that i downloaded from sparky but didnt get a connection to kent. DHT is quite clever, but there's more chances that thing go wrong. pit...

Re: PTC 1. The next step.

Christoph, do you know what happends if Sparky copies the files from the hard drive he will receive in a few days, and overwrites the files that the torrent software is slowly building up? most torrent clients should have an option to relink the torrent file to the new complete files, so he could i...

Re: PTC 1. The next step.

jup, the SD version is seeding now.. congrats ;) the HD version is still stuck it seems but maybe it just needs a bit of time. but then again it might be best to wait till two or three people have the SD files so the HD upload doesn't slow down the SD torrent. i can help seeding for a few days as i ...

Re: PTC 1. The next step.

hehe, i agree that this is far from a nightmare.. have you ever dealt with setting up a DNS server? took me the better part of 3 days... ;) it's quite simple really: 1. use the client software to create the small .torrent files, including the link of the tracker you plan to use) (already done, but c...

Re: PTC 1. The next step.

a torrent really only works well if you use a tracker to share the .torrent file. from http://www.utorrent.com/documentation/make-a-torrent The Tracker A tracker is an application or script on a system that relays connection information about peers on a given torrent. However, it is most important s...

Re: PTC 1. The next step.

unless you created a trackerless torrent, you need to upload the torrent files to a tracker, not just send a zip... trackerless torrents are possible but not are supported by all clients and more prone to problems, so personally i don't recommend them. it's usually a good idea to make a test file of...

Re: 8mm Avisynth film restoring script

Has anyone tried Avisynth and Fred's script on a Mac? I found this link and wondered how effective it might be... http://www.animemusicvideos.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=65&t=95075 crossover is basically a windows emulator.. it could work, but you're most likely having less trouble and more options b...

Re: PTC 1. The next step.

it's rather unfortunate that bittorrent got such a bad reputation. the protocol itself is totally legal, and in fact very clever... the idea is that you have a file (or bunch of files) on your local harddisk, and create a small torrent file based on that which you can upload to a tracker (there are ...

Re: PTC 1. The next step.

Could do with some advice as to what to do next. I'm all for distributing the raw transfer to all the partakers- maybe on DVDs or is there a good way to host it online for selected downloading by those involved? wow, never thought this would happen, but it seems it all worked out in the end :) as f...

Re: 8mm Avisynth film restoring script

i agree that this script is most likely the best source for those who want to improve their super8 transfers (myself i'm more of a soft, grainy guy ;). avisynth works only in 8bit internally, but that's really not a problem for screen playback because a well done 8bit frame looks identical to the ey...

Re: Is an HD Super 8 transfer overkill?

Ah, OK. With the film out in mind, I modify the question to Christoph: sorry kent, i'm out of this discussion... i already answered this question in detail in this thread and i even posted a real world comparison a few pages back: flashscanHD 720P transfer: http://eightmm.net/filmshooting/flashscan...

Re: Is an HD Super 8 transfer overkill?

well, looking at the sample clips on their website, their system has a true resolution of just slightly higher then PAL. Can you tell directly from their test footage? but make a guess for yourself, which one of these crops has the highest resolution, and how much? well, apparently nobody was inter...

Re: Is an HD Super 8 transfer overkill?

I'm sure it could look nice but is a non-issue if you choose to capture in HD to begin with, even if you are doing a low end telecine. if you do low end telecine, you have crappy results anyway, no matter what you do, so what's the point of slightly more detail and less problems of uprezing? the fu...

Re: Is an HD Super 8 transfer overkill?

It isn't like the techie guys at SMPTE whipped out their best Super 8 camera and shot a test chart pinned up on the wall with a cartridge of Plus-X, is it? it's fine grained print film (like 6ASA) and printed in the lab using special high contrast targets (resolution is dependent on contrast)... bt...
