Your gift...

The internet is full of surprises these days.
I was contacted by a mysterious, shadowy group of subversives who SOMEHOW managed to film a substantial amount (over 400 GB!) of raw, unedited HD footage from three separate complete shows of our Lights in the Sky tour. Security must have been lacking at these shows because the quality of the footage is excellent.

If any of you could find a LINK to that footage I'll bet some enterprising fans could assemble something pretty cool.

Oh yeah, you didn't hear this from me.

There is about 405gb of HD footage available. It was recorded with multiple consumer HDV cameras during three shows: Victoria 12.05.08, Portland 12.07.08, and Sacramento 12.12.08.

This is raw, unedited, un-color-corrected HD footage. It will be primarily of interest to advanced users, who may wish to attempt to edit it together into something. It could be really interesting to see what creative users can put together using this and other fan-recorded footage. These guys are off to a great start already.

Novice users might not want to download this just yet. If you don't have a fast computer for playing back high definition video, or hundreds of gigabytes of storage available to save it to, this download will probably cause you nothing but problems. If you just want to see some live footage, you might be better off waiting until more advanced users get the footage and turn it into something more digestible for the masses. I'm sure a lot of this stuff will be turning up on YouTube as soon as people get it downloaded.

The footage is available as a free download via bitTorrent. If you don't know what bitTorrent is, please go to this link and read every word of it before you ask anyone on the forums what to do with the torrent files.

As the files are tremendously large, don't expect any instant gratification - the download may take days, even weeks. There are a handful of seeders to start things off. Until we get a large number of seeders, please only download these files right now if you intend to help seed them for a while after you're done. Certain downloaders will get much faster download rates than others, depending on your IP address. This is due to peering relationships our hosting provider has which we're utilizing to get some initial seeds out as fast as possible. If your download is going incredibly slow or not going at all, don't worry, it'll pick up within the next couple days.

Here are the links:

Victoria
Portland
Sacramento

The included README files have some further notes about the footage, which has been conveniently formatted for easy editing and even includes Final Cut Pro sequences with the footage pre-organized for editing.

EDIT - PC USERS: This footage needs to be converted before it can be edited on any PC application, as the HDV2 codec does not yet exist for PC. User 'bawitdaba' has posted some useful information for PC users in this thread. When someone has encoded all the footage in a PC-friendly format, we will offer torrents of that footage for everyone to utilize.

In regards to audio sync, is the audio on this footage usable, or is it possible that some soundboard recordings might mysteriously appear down the road?

Oh wow.

I wondered what that locked thread was about. Thanks, looking forward to getting on this when I'm back on my own computer.

edit: yeah, I should really read things fully before I post as a) I don't have 405GB free (more like 4.5) and b) my computer hates HD.

Still, extremely exciting news for everyone!

The great thing is I don't feel the pressure to download this as soon as I get home, since I could never download all this stuff and not run into issues. tongue sticking out smiley

I can't wait to see this stuff in other places, though, and also put together by those more technically skilled than me...grinning smiley

I wish I had a crapload of gigs available to try to download and play with, but alas.

But this is amazing. My jaw is totally dropped.

Reminder: Most torrent software allows you to pick and choose which files from the torrent you want to download. So if you don't have enough free space for the whole download but want to check out some footage, you could just download one or two files from the torrent.

Imma tard but if I dl something then don't want it anymore, can I delete it from my harddrive and free up that space for something else??


Anyone? Bueller? Rob?

Awesome stuff, but since I don't have a fast enough connection/enough HD space I'll have to be one of the waiting ones...Definitely stoked to see some of the footage though, hopefully someone gets on ripping audio as well...three live albums!! grinning smiley
