Marco said he'll put the links on the Blender site ASAP. In the meantime, you can download the Tower Room sessions from here: http://growingontrees.com/bc2006/tower_room/ Thanks once more for all your great comments! This was a really fun project and (now that I've regained my strength) I can't wait...

rcas, thank you! The tower room stuff's been uploaded already but there's just one session (your head modelling workshop btw) that must be captured from tape. Marco thought id best to first get that uploaded as well and _then_ post the links on the Blender site. In other words, it'll take some time....

Thank you, zoogie.
I'll be putting the second room stuff online ASAP. If anyone's interested, there's a short commentary on the production on my blog: http://filipp.name

My experience is that one camera for taping and one for grabbing is not enough... maybe that was because I was doing it all alone. I just discussed this with Marco and it does seem that everything should be fine in the main hall. All the video and audio will be mixed and cut together and then just ...

Ah, thanks for the pics! Should I bring a handycam and pc to grab dv right after it's taped? I was kind of hoping we wouldn't have to do any capturing in the main hall at all. Unfortunately I don't know all the details of the facilities. There's a chance that only the projector and sound can be reco...

The small sessions are horrid to tape. It's a round room. I skipped all of thoose sessions. One could see them as a challenge :) The talks there are interesting though, mostly about future development. I guess that's why there don't seem to be even any pictures of sessions in that room. Is it reall...

Are there any plans to distribute the videos via commom p2p-networks? This could be a way to share them in full quality (25fps). Actually the framerate isn't that important. A presentation or app demo, for any practical purposes, looks the same at 8fps as 25fps. Even the presenters will look pretty...

I've set up some compression tests for both what I think will be the streaming quality and the later download one: Streaming (320x240 @ 8fps @ 140 kbit/s 32kbit/s audio): http://growingontrees.com/bc2006/tests/1min-128kbit.mp4 Download (640x480 @ 8fps @ 400kbit/s 64kbit/s audio): http://growingontre...

Somebody has to tell the speakers they need to repeat the questions, and if it's the camera guy then the speakers tent to ignore that remark. I think the trick is to yell across the hall to the speaker to repeat a question so that everybody hears. Then they'll be too embarassed to forget it. :twist...

joeri, all very good points, indeed. We may well end up with upwards of 12 hours of material per day. Editing in itself is not a big deal - just put the picture and sound in sync and cut some alternate angles in between, but the whole process is. Capturing 12 hours takes 12 hours, compressing it tak...

konrad, many thanks! I'll see if I can get an extra mic and tripod, that way we might be able to roll both venues at once. :) I'll let You know ASAP.

Thanks, zoogie.
The reason I signed up for this was because I think the sessions are really great. I actually pulled a whole rigging project simply by watching B. Kurdali's rigging session from '05.

Looking forward to this. :)

And another simple way of getting the questions on tape is to ask the presenter to repeat them into the mic. I'll try and do it this year.

My initial idea was to capture everything too, but by the looks of it, we only have 1 dedicated camera and several events going on at once. Audio will be my topmost priority this year. That and getting the presentations/screen grabs straight off the wire. The plan is to have a wireless lapell mike a...
