Unusual rejection reason

<< < (2/3) > >>

Hi! this happened to me too in P5.

If you're resubmitting the same clip you will get the double detection. Double detection reads metadata of your file. So the workaround that i found was to render it again. That will create a new metadata ID for your clip and will be good to go.   

When you edit your 8mm clip before submit to review you got at the end "curator note".
Just write there "Native format 8mm 4:3" and use some tags like 8mm, old film, archival in the description.
Sometimes It will pass but others not really. I suspect not all curators read the notes that I put in the clips.

Anyway after review simply send the reply with your justification in case of rejection. That worked for me.

In terms of sales it didn't match my expectations. But each case is one case... GL!

I sent P5 an e-mail and in their reply, they recommended that I submit the clip as a 4:3 file instead of 4:3 inside of a 16:9 file. So I selected 4:3 with an NLE program and exported it as  3840 x 2880. When I view the thumbnail of the clip, there are no more black bars on the left and right. Though now there are thick black bars on the top and bottom. I wasn't expecting to see those.

Why not just crop it tightly and tidy to 4:3?
I'm with them with this one, if the original is 4:3 submit as 4:3, buyer can easily incorporate it into 16:9 as he pleases.

Yea I'm trying to give them what they want. By exporting the clip as 4:3 and 3840 x 2880, I thought it would end up as 4:3. Just a little surprised to see those black borders on the top and bottom.

Oh that sounds cool. I hope you get that 16mm footage added to your port. Ive shot a bit of 16mm with a Russian camera (Krasnogorsk 3.) The K3 had a wind up spring motor and was very reliable for a few years but one day, it refused to run anymore.

Ah yes, I found that out the hard way.

Good tips. I'll definitely write a note to the reviewer. I wish I could use tags like "öld film" and "archival" but in actual fact, this footage was shot two years ago. I shoot mostly digital these days but once in a while, I'll expose a little bit of super 8 with a 1970s movie camera. I like that retro look.
