I'm verra annoyed.

I spent the whole of last week downloading 200gig of Farscape bluray .mkv files so I could cap them for [livejournal.com profile] farscape_20in20 (Hmm hi res screencaps!). Never mind that it has used all my credit, but the 720p that I downloaded was only giving me a res of 960x720. (This is partly because it was filmed in PAL and to do all the thingimajigs they'd have to to upgrade it would cost too much money.) SO It wasn't THAT much better than what is out there.

And now, I go to my site where I get all my TV and I see that there has been a 1080p version uploaded. ARGHHHH!!! I am going to have to seed these for the next 18 million years to keep my credits. 

I am only going to download 1 episode just now and see what the size/quality of the caps is like.... Stoopid.


On the plus side, I have a Priest!battle lined up with the wondeful [livejournal.com profile] vampire_sessah and I am slightly nervous as I love her icons and she's waaaaay out of my league. But it's Priest and the caps are so beautiful and I want to make Priest Icons. I'm so excited!

Ooooh yes. We desperately need some hi-res Farscape caps, very true.

Right? But theres better files out now and they are 4GB a piece. It is going to take forever. But it will be worth it!

UGH. I really despise that about downloads. I get them and then find out the resolution is half what it should be and I want to rage so hard.

Oh man a Priest battle. NOM Paul Bettany.

Thanks, something tells me it's going to be a labour of love.

That sounds super annoying indeed. But your devotion to farscape_20in20 is awesome. I take all my own caps but would be tempted to use hi-res ones!

As an aside, your new layout is so very gorgeous, I am jealous! I just changed mine yesterday and am jealous LOL Where did you get it?

Erm, the layout is from [livejournal.com profile] minty_peach. I think...

I'm so bad I meant to put a credit in my profile and completely forgot!

Ouch, I can imagine the frustration. :P Me too would be DESPERATE for good caps, though; especially episodes 1x01-1x05, PKW and maybe the fourth season. I use farscapecaps.com, and those I mentioned seem a bit worse in quality than the rest. I also dislike the fact that mysteriously there are 1000000 caps of every second John and Aeryn kiss, and some other scenes get no caps at all. How many do you plan on making per ep? I wish I knew how to cap, I'd be willing to help. That's a super big task for one person!

The capping itself doesn't take that long as I just set KMP Player to autocap every 18 frames or so. It's the deleting of all the unusable caps and then the resizing (most hi res caps come in at around 400kb. Multiply that by 3000 and you have a rather large zip file! ) that take the time.

I am starting with S1 as that's the only one available in 1080p at the moment that I can find. Once it's downloaded I hope to get an episode every couple of days done! Fingers crossed!

Oh, I see. That sounds like an awesomne pace. Keep us posted! :) and do tell me if there's any way I can help.

What I might get you to do is beta test the caps for me if you don't mind. Sometimes resizing caps means you lose quality. it would be good to get a second opinion on them before I post them for everyone...
