I'm From Barcelona - "Treehouse" (from Thursday's gig)


This was taken from a DV tape using iMovie. I tried converting it to the correct size (424x312, and not 320x240 as YouTube tells you) using iMovie, but the resulting file had hideous interlacing artifacts. So I put it through ffMPEG (using the VisualHub front-end, which is rather nifty), telling it to convert it to MPEG4, scale it to that size, deinterlace it, and make the file about 90Mb in size (the theory being that the more detail I leave in, the less damage YouTube's processing will do to it). Oh, and I desaturated the colour somewhat, because my cheap video camera and the lighting conspired to make everything a bit too reddish-purple otherwise.
