I've been a moderator here since February 2014. I've done audio/visual production work as a mix of hobbyist and professional levels for the past 17 years. While my career is a software architect, I studied Electronic Media, Arts and Communications in college as a dual major (with Computer Science). I have worked professionally as a producer (doing both the audio and video) for distance education classes while in college. In addition, I produced the 3D animated intro video for all the distance education classes. I also worked with the paid Audio and Lighting organizations in college.

I have run the DVD Production efforts for Wiicafe covering the Electronic Entertainment Expo from 2002 to 2006 and also ran a wedding videography business for several years. I have since moved on to a wedding photography business after my second camera man moved away. Finally, I also production work for several annual conferences and have worked with multiple music festivals over the years.

I got my start working with crappy gear for non-profits and worked my way up through better levels of gear and training as I moved in to a professional level of work and then further improved through my college studies. I have also been the sound and at times video guy for the various churches I've been in over the years.

comment Can low quality video be manipulated to change the displayed time without being detectable?
Oh wow, if a computer scientist said it is "almost impossible" to change the video, they are full of crap and outright lying. Besides, a computer scientist is in no way remotely qualified to make that kind of claim anyway without other credentials. The best bet is still to find the original then.

comment Is there a video type for vector animation?
That's a pretty good point about the fact that most motion estimation really is kind of vector based, though not really in the context the OP is referring to since it can't scale indefinitely. That stuff from Bath is pretty impressive though. Very nice edge detection and pathing from what I could tell from the sample.

comment Is there a video type for vector animation?
It is also worth pointing out I was being semi-sarcastic and semi-serious in my response. It really isn't a video format. Video, pretty much by definition, is raster, however there are playable animation formats, of which Shockwave Flash (now known as Flash) is the most commonly used. As you determined, Flash Video is a different thing and is a form of raster video designed to be embedded within a Flash animation (which has actually grown to have a full scripting system allowed inside it's execution.)

comment Problems while implementing RTMPT server
Probably stack overflow then. I would suggest adding some code from around where the problem is first though.

comment Problems while implementing RTMPT server
That likely makes it even less on topic here I'd think. RED5's "development" is really more configuring end points though than I would really consider it development.

comment Problems while implementing RTMPT server
You may have better luck with this on SuperUser or ServerFault. In depth configuration of RED5 is really more server related than video production related.

I would also point out though that it doesn't really make sense that a neighboring store would provide footage with altered time code. Why not go to that store and ask if you can verify it is the footage they provided and verify if the clock on their camera is correct.

made a bit more question like to try to keep it in the realm of on-topic.

comment What tools do you use for command line editing?
There is still not a question mark in the entire question body. This still simply consists of a monolog on an option you like and is completely disjointed from the title.

comment Cinema 4D Objects Turn Black
Nice additional thought about the lighting and hardware texture. Glad someone was able to come along and provide more details about how Cinema4D does textures too. It is literally the only one of the big four 3d packages I haven't used.

comment How to add Letterbox to the Video I have shot?
do you want the resolution of the video altered so that it will only take up that space or do you actually still want a 1080p video with black boxes (note, this will waste bits in the video file). If you can give some more detail about the context you are using it in and why you need it cropped in this manner, then we may be able to provide better advice.

So you are specifically looking to crop them so they won't go full screen?

What format are you trying to move to? Do you have a particular resolution it needs to fit? What are you actually trying to accomplish? This will impact the best way to scale the video.

comment Process for crafting disparate travel footage
@AdamMannPro - yeah, I agree and it certainly won't hurt to check with family and friends, just thought it worth mentioning that there would be some noteable bias in that case. Still good for seeing some things that are easy to miss with your own work early on though.
