I know there's a site with Parkrun and others at 720p/1080i/1080p in raw YUV format, but I keep losing the link; someone care to post it?

I think you are talking about this one :

ftp://ftp.ldv.e-technik.tu-muenchen....est_sequences/

Another one with 1080p uncompressed video :

There is an online database of high quality video tests clips. It is very well documented about the aquisition and processes applied to sequences.
Access and videos are free for research and development (and personnal use I guess) but you need to register.

Found on a flee mart:
I have digitalized a 3 min. 8mm Laurel&Hardy "La voiture aux encheres". (car in auction or something)
Rough, ungraded, HD, Stabilized (but with borders).
EDIT: (dirty and scratched, fluctuating light)

I could share it if this could interest someone.

But what about rights?

Source samples are more appropriate here, not processed/fixed samples.

EDIT: Some of the previous given full size samples [maybe Elephants Dream, or Tears Of Steel] are truly massive,
something like 800GB lossless/uncompressed in some cases, audio samples too can be enormous.
But some, samples are examples of problem video.

Do you mean, the file out of the camera right after capture = the clip before stabilisation?
But still, I can process the excellent script I have that removes duplicated/mixed frames to become a frame accurate capture?

Clip before anything is done, ie source.
These samples are intended as test sequences, not results of some obscure processing.

The clean lossless/uncompressed samples, can be used eg to create problem video, which can then be used as problem source,
and test clips for implementing tools to fix the synthesized problem.

It is advantageous to have test clips without eg compression artefacts, when trying to create a filter to fix some problem,
artefacts make it harder to find algo that works best for a specific problem.

[But some of the samples are actual example problem clips]

When someone posts about a problem clip, any responders always want the source clip,
the result of failed processing is no use at all to someone wanting to assist to solve a problem.
[although a poster could ALSO post the tried and failed script, so responder can re-create and see results attained so far].

Before clip and successful After clip [maybe side by side] can be interesting and informative, but failed After clip
on its own is almost pointless.

No obscure treatment, of course.
But I cannot post the film reel
Ideal woild be raw output from cam. But mine cannot.
Best is XAVC-I MXF 4:2:2 Intra 5.2 (well, mp4)
So, still, compressed.
From this, I only remove the unuseful frames and crop, can output AVI.

Yes of course, digitized OK.

If that is the closest to RAW that you have, then that on its own might be of interest (as an example of "XAVC-I MXF 4:2:2 Intra 5.2").
[I have no real idea what it is, although I think I just used FfMpegSource on your earlier posted clips].
And also any dupe removal and crop is probably OK too, so long as result is at least lossless.
But maybe no deshaker, nor deflicker, nor descratcher, nor denoiser type stuff applied.

It's just a normal H.264 10bit planar but with all the frames encoded as Intra (like --keyint 1) and --slices 8.
Nothing too fancy...

Seems so easy...
So, after dupe removal + crop, I just can export it in Vdub as H264 10bit planar Intra and this will produce no loss? Or is uncompressed AVI better?

Anyway, I'll post both files.

Either or both probably well accepted.
[it not for me to tell you what you can and cannot post, but if everybody posted processed holiday clips, would make the list of limited interest due to the
mass of non useful (for test purposes) clips].

Some of the clips are posted by eg TV stations, Universities, 30 secs or so duration and professionally produced without lossy compression.
Not sure, think those last two links in post #9 might fit that description.

Would be nice if an old 60 secs or so source clip was provided by the likes of VideoFred and/or JohnMeyer,
along with the specific processing script/s, and maybe also link to result on YT, (either here or maybe better suited in their own threads),
so that others could reproduce both the procedure and results [and also learn from the experience].
Your clips and results would likewise be of interest to many. [maybe post here and link to fix thread].
In such case, then could defo (definitely) provide the MXF and dedup scripts too.

EDIT: FranceBB posted something like that a little while ago, probably a candidate for this list too.
[Sky advert I think]

Thank you for your explaination.

Ok, I'll post these MXF + unduped version in some cleaning thread perhaps.
As they seem more interesting for cleaning/degrain purposes than for the file itself.
Ok for restoration clips and scripts. Gotta setup something clear first though.

In that context, I might have something more adapted. Hope it is of any interest.
No lossy compression, professionally produced in our macro shooting studio.
It is a Red R3D 4K 16bit 39seconds file. 2GB. It is a RAW file resulting from macro motion control tests.
I didn't find a way to open it in Avisynth64 though. If someone knows how, I'd be curious to try.
