This film was captured from a VHS tape that lacked any audio track. It's typically
been shown over the years, as it was filmed, upside down. The film was
shot at 6 frames per second, but displayed at 29.972 frames
per second for the TV audience. In other words, 5 times too fast.
In addition, a 3:2 pull down was done by the studio which, basically, adds
an extra frame every 4th frame. The end result was an
upside down film being shown 4 times too fast.
I captured the video at 29.972 fps.
I then rotated the image 180 degrees and restored the colors as much as possible, given the source.
Next, I cropped the video artifacts, removed the 3:2 pull down, and
saved the resulting file
as a 320x240, 6 frames per second Quicktime movie, using the Sorenson codec. Shown at
its original frame rate, this movie is 2 1/2 minutes long.
Why Sorenson? This video was over 225 megs before compression.
Sorenson, by far,
gives you the most compression while retaining much of the original quality.
Quicktime 3, or better, to view.
