2868Re: [the boredoms] LIVE At Sunflancisco
- Dec 26, 2007How long does the DVD run? In the past, at least, it seemed as if the
group was under-represented in music video and official concert video
output, very odd for a group with such visual qualities. I haven't
seen the video described here, but the "blurs" (though likely
deliberate) also sound like partly a side-effect of certain digital
video transcoding errors, where dark scenes or scenes that fade to
black leave a weird artifact-type smear on the screen instead of just
fading properly from light to dark. It's been years now, and I'm
still waiting for this digital flaw to be corrected; if anyone can
explain why it's never been corrected, can that be explained, too?
It's especially evident in certain TV broadcasts. Transfers of old
videotape show this flaw readily. VH-1 Classics ran some early MTV
broadcasts awhile ago, but instead of using tape, or a propely-coded
transfer from tape, they had these gritty-looking bad transcodings
that looked like they were done by an amateur, with the same sort of
digital flaws (weird fades, dropped frames, smearing, etc.). --- In
