Earlier I was searching for a software that could extract the audio from a .mp4 video file. Then I ended up on a website with commands to a very useful text based program called FFmpeg, including exactly what I was searching for. You can find all necessary links below:
Some weeks ago I stumble across a really cool video where Hatsune Miku performs live at the 39′s Giving Day concert in Japan. There are also three other characters performing, but I don’t know their names. ^^
Check out Miku’s performance below:
The first time I watched the video I saw it in very low resolution, so I couldn’t really tell how the technology to show her worked. At first I thought that maybe it was a real actor in a costume or a robot, since Japan is a really robot friendly country. Then I googled to find answer and I found this article – stating that Miku on the concert was a 3D hologram. But I wasn’t sure if the article was right, which it wasn’t. Because I thought it sounded a bit too advance with 3D hologram.
If you watch the performance in higher resolution you can easily see that she is very pixely at close distance, which proves that she isn’t real or a robot. It is also possible to see that there is a huge frame on the stage with a net, that Miku is projected on with a camera from behind. So in reality it is only a 2D image on a net. However, it still looks awesome and the spirit on the concert is fantastic.
This is a really nice track that I heard on the State of Trance-podcast. Enjoy!
This must be the very best anime OP of all times.
Now it is only two weeks left until Equilibrium’s album Rekreatur is released, the 18th of June! They have already uploaded two of the album’s songs on the internet for listening, and they are totally awesome. Hrm… I was going to add links to them on Youtube, but it seems like they recently have been deleted.
I’m thinking on buying Equilibrium t-shirts from their store, but I’m not yet sure because it’s far from free. An Rekreatur shirt costs 16 € + 3 € (shipping) = 19 €, which maybe is a normal price, but still pretty high I think.
