    I think that Linkin Park should make a mash-up of the Official BITS Video and that of the concert Visuals..

    We use Final Cut Pro for editing and the entire Adobe CS5 suite currently. We also have a slew of other programs for 3D motion tracking, 3D modeling and animation, rotoscoping, and other specialized effects. We mainly use a very heavily modified version of Adobe After Effects for most of our work. We have yet to find something that After Effects can't do. As far as getting started, since you are in college you can probably pick up the Academic versions of the Adobe CS5 collection and Final Cut Pro for a good deal from your campus store. Once you start learning the basics of the programs, you can dive into more advanced tutorials available on the web.

    Great video by the way. And don't let the YouTube commenters get to you about the sound. I'm surprised the mic didn't blow out being so close to the speakers in the front row.

    Well, I feel like it is only right to ask you guys this question after all the debate over the new Burning in the Skies video. Please, could you tell us more about the making of that video and the inspiration behind it all? Perhaps tell us some insight into the video to give us all a better understanding of the video. Although I personally love the video, many fans here are more conflicted on their opinions of the video.

    Well you aren't going to like my reply to this one, but that is really more of a Joe question. I don't feel that I can speak for Joe, but what I can say is that he is the type of artist that definitely looks for the abstract in his work. I'm not trying to be cryptic, it's just not really my place to speak for another artist. :)

    haha, I was expecting that. But having the chance to ask you guys a question like this is definitely worth trying. Hope you guys bring it hard for the next video. We're all very excited to see something beautiful for Iridescent.

    Amazing work Ghost Town. the visuals really added another dimension to the live concert. The blackout one is better then i could imagine for a music video.

    Question for Ghost Town, I'm assuming that it was you guys that did the ATS Laser Light Show too, is there any chance that you guys could release the videos from that as well?

    Thanks! Much appreciated. Just wait until we can release the 1080p versions! :)

    Actually the laser light show was done by a different group that specializes in laser light shows. Unfortunately we don't have access to any of those videos. Sorry!

    I concur, though I'd be happy with just a ballpark, as I assume you don't have an exact release date finalized yet.

    Unfortunately we don't have even ballpark figures on when the videos will be released yet. We're just as anxious as you all. And I'm glad to be able to answer questions. Remember that we're fans too!

    I don't think I would watch the visuals.
    Of course, I mean not until I've been to one of the ATS shows and watch it in the way it is supposed to be watched.

    Ghost town, I wanted to let you know that the live video effect for Jornada Del Muerto gave me chills. Great work. Anyways, on to my question, did you guys also come up with the idea to use the old TV test patterns? I think little effects like those work brilliantly with the creative feeling of Linkin Park's last two albums.
