The video says "Inspired by the paintings of John Register" but the first thing I thought when I watched this was the painter Edward Hopper. Gorgeous vid either way.

yeah i thought it was pretty hopper-ish myself
till i dug up 'restaurant overlooking the pacific' and 'cadillac hotel'

This one 'll be my fav of the month. The paintings are amazing too.

captainmarc22, April 18, 2008 9:37:36 PM CEST

favorite of the month? This is like 11 years old.

I do remember seeing a link on the Antville BBS back in 1997.

subtly sharp. (but: interlaced, much?)

progosk: horrid encode - maybe the encoder thought they could get away with it considering the amount of static shots within the video. in my experience most interlacing issues come from field dominance problems on the master (i'm self-taught so i hope a wiser person than me could explain this problem for the good of antville - dek?), but not exclusively by any means. its a shame for this video because it detracts from its beauty.

sorry for the over-familiarity with you regulars, i've just lurked for too long.

progosk, April 19, 2008 9:34:22 AM CEST

it's simpler than that, kappado.
this was encoded from the videotape master, and someone forgot to check the deinterlace option. (though the video is from '97, the encode, given its size and the fact it's an h.264, was done recently.) information on tapes was meant for tv broadcast, and traditional tvscreens needed interlaced information, since that's just how they work - they alternately refresh the odd and then the even lines - the tape stores this info as an "odd" and then an "even" field, each of which consisting of 50% of the given frame's lines. any medium that, on the other hand, refreshes the frame progressively, that is, from the first to the last line one after the other, necessarly adds the odd and even field together to make a full frame, and that's when you start seeing lines. the wrong field dominance will exacerbate this problem, but it's basically down to forgetting that computer screens (from the file name&extension you can tell they intended it for the iphone) are progressive.
odd mistake, given rockpaperscissors' expertise&savvy. (btw, nice site interface...)

Methinks that's actually 3:2 pulldown, maybe with some aliasing due to "point sampling" or any other low quality/high speed rezing algorithm.

progosk, April 20, 2008 12:46:27 AM CEST

now that you mention it, methinks you're right...

kappadonna, April 22, 2008 5:21:51 PM CEST

i was under the impression that deinterlacing is a bad idea as it only uses the video information on the first field so therefore only giving you half the available information? also how does one mess with field dominance - editing programmes always seem to be frame based?

This is the faster (and poorer) deinterlacing algorithm, not the only one.
Also, unlike interlacing, telecine pulldown is completely reversible, unless you don't mess with the footage (i.e. high compression and/or interlacing)

kappadonna, April 29, 2008 7:45:08 PM CEST

dek: thanks for the info and the link, that site is very interesting. is there a list anywhere that says which type of deinterlacing various programmes use? thanks again!

dek, April 30, 2008 6:32:08 PM CEST

Don't know. Consider that some sw houses doesn't even disclose this information, because their algorithm is proprietary.
