AtomFilms Hi-Def - cool place to get film played

Hi guys,

I just read this cool thing about Atom Films doing High-Def indie's, so I wanted to pass on the information to us HDV users.

http://www.uemedia.net/CPC/directors...cle_6223.shtml

WMVHD is their codec scheme, but it's weird because they are saying "Near DVD quality" on their opening page.

The quality all depends on the bitrate that they might be suggesting. Sure, media 9 would be 'near DVD quality' if they say to use a 3 megabit rate. What do they recommend to submitters?

I always read that Atom Films actually KEPT the (c) of your film! Is this true?

I think the "Hi-Def" tag is just a sales ploy, and not really hi-definition, it's probably standard definition at better quallity than they used to make available.

I did try this and two of the 6 or 7 films are 1280x720p WMV sources, very nicely encoded film scans. I hope to see more soon.

The WMVHD short "Gulp" reports as 6320Kb/s which is about correct for a 330,000k file that plays for 7:17.

GULP was made via Ford, right?
