Drist video clips are up

Drist‘s guitarist, Brian, passed by today to drop off two music video clips the band shot back in 2001 in LA. Apparently the .mov files still work with Quicktime on the Mac, but not on the PC (audio, but no video). Using VLC instead, I get video but no audio. For a moment there I got pretty scared that I won’t be able to export the files to a youtube-friendly format for usage on DristTV, but Sony Vegas Pro 8 came to the rescue as it was able to recognize and playback the files perfectly. So, I exported to h.264 .mp4 and then uploaded them to YouTube. Two things were unfortunate though: the original .mov files did not have the anamorphic bit set to ON (they were saved as 720×480 in letterbox instead of 873×480-via-anamorphic), and they were saved in a progressive format but without removing interlacing beforehand. So the lower quality and jaggies (even after using Vegas’ forced de-interlace artifact removal option) are unavoidable. Anyways, enjoy!
