I cut together HQ bits from Rio first night shown in this documentary https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W4uUNOJ2iTM . Removed all the interview scenes, only live footage here. Also, I didn't crop off the letters visible from the watermark ("TI" & "W" from "MULTI SHOW") but removed them other way, so that they're not distracting.
Unfortunately there's like 1 second of footage missing at the beginning. That is because I used video file that Beta215 cut and uploaded here. I didn't realise anything was missing when I was making this, only noticed it afterwards when I took a peak at the youtube video once more.
Anyway, since it was uploaded on youtube in 60 fps, I didn't change that since I don't know how to detect frame dups and remove them accurately thus making it into a proper 25 fps video that surely was the original source. I decided against converting it to PAL because it still leaves some dups and removes some unique frames instead. Until I find a way or understand how to remove dups or blended frames, I will leave the frame rate as is.
I also made it smaller size. It doesn't change the quality that much though. https://www.mediafire.com/convkey/9fe4/ydnas0wix7bhas47g.jpg" border="0" alt="Simple, Free Image and File Hosting at MediaFire" /> https://mega.co.nz/#!KF0RGYgR!WxrCPEt_D24sWtN0hRXrFt_FoNhkDTrFNcWm4NfLrz0 .
Did you check the original bitrate? Also, the file size would have been about 3x smaller of I had converted it to 25 Fps. I always encode my videos in about 3000-4000 bitrate, that is, CRF = 16. Since I applied a couple of filters to reduce compression artifacts, small bitrate like the youtube uploads have would be pointless since it would introduce more comression artifacts that I tried to reduce in first place. Simple math.
About your PM, can't promise anything. Will take a look tomorrow.
"Deacon makes quite a little jump at :52."
Yeah what song is that? The audio is still Under Pressure but Freddie has his jacket back on. I assume Tear It Up? Deacon is becoming the real hero in Queen :)

Would you like to revisit this short footage, since I think you understanded how to remove dups (according to your last big remaster St. Paul)? If it don't bothers you.
Well, I needed to remove them from St Paul footage in order to increase the frame rate to 29.970. But for this video all that would achieve is smaller file size. I think it would look about the same. Got a couple of other videos to do yet anyway :)
