After almost 10 days of uploading, the 650 GB of 16 bits TIF files arrived safely at xiph.org. Ralph from Xiph converted these to 16 bits PNG and mentioned it was actually 165 GB less data Both TIF and PNG are available there now.
Hopefully they can manage the bandwidth. Thanks for hosting it xiph.org!
We’re very interested to host and link to brand new superior encoded HD Sintel versions. Post urls here!
