1. Thanks! It's really nice to realize that I can do some filming/editing stuff. Two years ago I couldn't dream of it, and then everything has changed. The filename 010 is just the number of project name. I save it into a new file every time I change a lot of stuff, so if something terrible happens I could go back to the previous state.
2. It would look great if you watch it with Media Player Classic (could be downloadable as a part of codec pack from http://codecguide.com
). This time I've used only good cameras, finally! Three Canon HV30 (it cost $1200 when it was new, but I bought them used for 1/3 price each), one of them mounted on steadycam (Flycam 3000 actually), one Panasonic HDC-TM 300 for non-stop recording near the drum-set (the same price, and it wasn't mine - Larisa from Vladivostok brought one), and megacool camcoder with great optics Sony HDR-FX1 ($4000!!! Found it at my workplace and asked boss to take that with me. And I was very lucky - now this camera is not ours anymore) - used it for full-scene footage. Each camera recorded into FullHD 50i.
3. Actually the sound is terrible, but it was even worse. I couldn't find a multichannel soundcard for multichannel recording, so I recorded a mixed stereo-sound from sub-output of the mixer. And it was damn bad - there was some trouble in some kind of clipping or whatever. So I recorded a clicked sound like when you're listening a very damaged audio cd. I think there is a way to re-draw the sound manually in these places, but it's too hard, there're about 5 clicks per second, with total count of about 27000 clicks I have to re-draw. I will upload pictures of it. Also I recorded live sound by stereo-recorder Zoom H1 placed near the sound-guy, at the center of the hall. I had to edit both recordings: stereo-expander, dynamic equalizer, graphic equalizer, multiband compressor. Then mix them both. So the result is in this video. I will upload short clips of original recordings later.
4. I always try to record gigs of the bands or persons I liked in the past, when I was young and crazy fan-boy. But of course I don't make money out of it. Often when I plan a new filming I spend all the money I collected on new equipment, road and so on. I just hope that one day I will be experienced so I could make videos for money, then buy more stuff (now I have some nice ideas with 3D filming - already tried it), then make more money and buy more stuff. And yeah, it was cool in Moscow, people came literally from everywhere to see the band.
5. I don't really know why this all-around cool VLC couldn't play my AVC H.264 files properly, and no player I've tried plays 50i mode as 50i (all of them either plays it with horizontal lines or try to deinterlace the video by combining two half-frames together, and it looks really bad - soap-looking slow picture). I didn't get what Media Player Classic does with interlace, but it looks really sharp (no ghosting) and smooth (no slideshow effect). It really looks like it makes a 50p by using some intelligent deinterlacing.
