Hey, no prob. I caught on to the KVCD standard a few years ago... it definately breathes a little more life into the VCD format. Since I have access to an excellent editing machine (dual processor G5 w/Final Cut Pro 4), I thought I could put together a decent intro clip. Glad you liked it.

I'm making KDVD and SKVCD clips as we speak (same style).

It would be better still a full resolution clip, pal and ntsc.

If that's a suggestion, I'm all for it too

@Seth,

If you can re-encode to other resolutions, feel free to send them in, and I'll post the download links.
Probably 704x480, 720x480 and 704x576, 720x576 are the ones most people will look for
That will just about cover KVCDs and KDVDs.

I'm on it... (re-encoding in higher res). The original was 720x480 uncompressed, so it won't be a problem.

I doesn't upset me at all, but I think Seth does mind, becauses he asked me to leave the file name as it is, to give him credit
But then, that's the links I provided him, and if anyone else downloads and renames the files, that's out of my reach

Is *.mov the preferred file extention for these? Anyone looking to use these will surely have to transcode them to *.mpg before making a K(S)VCD/KDVD?

Or is that the whole point, since each person will be doing encodings at different bitrates and resolutions?

Sorry for not keeping up with this thread... here are my replies to several questions:

I used a program called "Livetype" which came with Apple's "Final Cut Pro 4" Suite.

Actually it kinda does, but I guess there's not much I can do if that's what you feel is necessary, although I don't see how it's really more complicated to have my name in the filename (at least when hosting it). I decided to do it that way so that I would still be credited with making it without putting a large intrusive "made by" text in the middle of those movie clips (KVCD... go to www.kvcd.net... LOGO BY SETH MCCAULEY!!!!.... just seemed cheesy). I also wanted it this way since I figured (correctly) that the files would end up on various FTP servers with no description of the files. Many times clips like this simply become anonymous this way and no one ever knows where they orignally came from. I suppose I've learned my lesson though (about trusting people to respect the work I put in to these)... next time I'll probably just put my name in the video. Can't go wrong there. I have to admit though, I'm a bit amazed that it only took three days for someone to strip my name off the filemane.

That's how I feel about it, anyway. I would at least prefer the people hosting the files to give me credit in some manor, and this is the only way I can think of in a file server without descriptions. I did, however, post these files here as a gift to the KVCD community to be used in whatever way people want. I submit/transfer the copyrights for these clips to Karl Wagner and KVCD.net to be used however he decides as long as he gives me credit for making them whenever possible (which he has done quite well). I didn't expect to get like, world recognition for this, LOL. I would like to get credit for doing them for more than three days though (Zerotype).

If nothing else, could you call them "SAM's KVCD Intro" (my initials) or "Seth's KVCD Intro"? It would be much appreciated.

OK, I figured someone would be asking this. I did all my editing on a Apple G5, so Quicktime is the main format used in nearly every program. I have actually come to like it, at least during editing, for it's level of quality at most compression levels. I know alot of people though that think, "Awww man, I gotta install quicktime to play this?", but I did it for a reason. While the editing software (Final Cut Pro) does export to Windows formats such as AVI, the compression codes for those formats is vastly out of date (which would mean poor quality files). I could re-encode the files on my PC, but that would mean the clips end up being compressed three times by the time you're done coverting them to VCD/DVD format. I also figured most everyone would be able to re-encode them... even the older versions of TMPEGEnc support quicktime movies (with a plug-in).

"Or is that the whole point"... Yes. I thought about encoding these to each format of VCD/SVCD/DVD, but that would be tons of files and might not be the same settings that everyone wants to use. If anyone needs these in a different format, I could export them to AVI but can't guarantee they'll be as high quality. I should go install the DivX codec on the Mac...

---------------------------------------------------------

And last but not least, thanks!... glad you liked the way it looked (Kwag, Dialhot, Zerotype). The only thing I'm not %100 sure of is the sound. I didn't spend as much time on the music, and I didn't use any sound effects. Any ideas? Should I change it? It seems a little old to me with that music (like something out of the '80s...). Let me know.

As said by someone above, tmpgenc can read en convert to MPEG2 (or MPEG1) all you .mov logos. So do not bother to deliver them as avi.

I looked at them at office, with no sound
