I think he was expressing frustration that we cannot review calibration movies except if we are lucky enough to be able to still backup, and even then there is no indication of where the track was. As I have gotten more experienced I am now missing no (knock on wood) calibration movies, but I believ...

triangular gouges

Does anyone know what causes the line of triangular gouges that show up fairly often, as in 5964974V1?

That sounds reasonable.

I wonder why you are seeing so many movies with focus bars missing and I went through several hundred before I stumbled on one.....

Okay, seeing that, I retract my theory that it has nothing to do with the particular movie.

Maybe we should be marking these bad focus. If most people are skipping them by logging out and in or refreshing, the project may erroneously think they are being looked at.

6802226V1

I got some sort of java(script?) error a few times while a movie as loading, then it stopped, partly loaded. I hit refresh and got a movie, which was like one I had not seen before, everything was light gizmos. So I log it here in case it is interesting, 6802226V1 . There was nothing I'd call a track.

It happened on one, I hit refresh and got a different movie number and it was that way also. I believe one of the movie numbers is visible on the print screen. My gut feeling is it has nothing to do with the movie, however. (Didn't there used to be a go to next movie button? Or did my fevered imagin...

clipped focus

Suddenly the focus gizmo became clipped. It stayed that way when I hit refresh. Logging in and out fixed it. Just a bizarre item. I put a printscreen at:

I just did a little experimenting. If I wait for both bars to complete, then backing up works. Ditto going forwards. But if I try to back up or go forwards when the bars are still completing, the movie context is lost and I get some other one. I didn't experiment to see if having one bar complete wa...

problem with backing up

It used to be possibly, when having answered a calibration movie incorrectly, to hit the browser back button to take another look at it (not to re-answer, just look.) This no longer works on firefox. Instead backing up gets a new movie.

Movie 9593072V1

What do you think about a possible sideways track at the right edge of the upper right quadrant in Movie 9593072V1? So far 131 people disagree with me :-)

number of calibration movies

I've seen 97 calibration movies and 192 real movies. Don't you think this is kind of overdoing the calibration movies? Although I am pleased to finally see some that have real but not-immediately obvious tracks. I wonder what the expected ratio is of sideways tracks to straight in tracks? Is there a...

I am so not going to install software to "read" an answer, or play sound in the middle of the night when others are asleep.
