Rogue One * <em>Spoilers</em> * Thread
Time

Saw it tonight and enjoyed it; I think it was better than The Force Awakens, but I still need to lie in bed and think about it to be sure!

There’s a scene where one of the characters is looking through some binoculars and there is some random text flickering past. It may just have been a trick of my brain, but I think I saw the text “TK421” for a few frames 😛

TPM 1080p Theatrical Preservation

Well even the link you provided...

... which was in my "correction" post, not the original one :)

Anyway, everything's looking good! A few pixels on the subtitles won't be noticeable and was just making sure that you were aware. I'm not trying to complain; what I've seen so far is several orders of magnitude better than anything I'd be able to produce!

Apparently only the Blu-ray was changed. As you were :)

I listed the differences from theatrical to dvd here. Note that's the first post on page 2 so I'm surprised you missed it!

I didn't miss it. I read it, noticed that the "bridge scene" wasn't on it, and posted about that (incorrectly).

This looks right:

Since I apparently can't help nitpicking... that subtitle is a little too far to the right :)

Pee-Wee's Big Adventure Restored in HD
Time

Warner has ruined "Falling Down" in the same way. It's supposed to start in total silence and gradually fade in the audio over a minute or two. On the Blu-ray they've plastered the new WB logo, complete with fanfare, over the top of the old one. Sigh.

TPM 1080p Theatrical Preservation
Time

I'd missed this thread until now. Going back up to the list of changes, I *think* one of the shots near the beginning of the movie is zoomed further out on the DVD. It's where the viceroy (I think that's his title) is watching the droidekas on a viewscreen.

Fantasia

Wow, just wow. I was under the impression that all of the magnetic sound had degraded by now so I never thought that we'd ever see (hear?) a complete copy again. It sounds like this will truly be one to treasure.

Like DoomBot, I will gladly contribute something if it's any help.

PS. Yay, forum's working again :)

The Hobbit (2014) - Resource and idea thread
Time

Sorry to dig up this old thread but it seems to be the most relevant.

I've just come back from a screening The Battle of the Five Armies in NZ and thought that some people might like to know that there's a "mini-documentary" on the front. The impression I got is that it's exclusive to NZ screenings, so it'll be interesting to see whether it makes it onto any home video release.

It runs for about five minutes and has Peter Jackson and many of the actors talking about the movies, all the friends they've made, etc, along with clips from the earlier films (including Lord of the Rings). It ends with the text "Thank You New Zealand".

The clip doesn't seem to be on YouTube at this point.

THE PHANTOM MENACE - THEATRICAL HD Topper's Version

The color correction is a good start.

Is there a good theatrical subtitle formatting/timing reference for TPM? I'd love a theatrical-restoration TPM to have accurate burnt-in subtitles like Harmy's Despecialized releases do.

 There's a "Z" theatrical camcordered copy, which of course has the original subtitles. The quality is terrible but it's probably sufficient for positioning and timing the subtitles correctly. Getting the correct font may be trickier.

TV Shows on DVD ruined by music replacement or cuts/edits: Restoring them back to original state (a project) (Update: The Andy Griffith Show: Season 3 DONE)
Time

One of the last episodes of Vicar of Dibley had music altered - I recorded it off TV here in NZ but accidentally cut the end off. I then downloaded a torrent of a broadcast from another country (possibly UK but I can't say for sure) and the music was different in one particular scene (NZ broadcast had Keane's "Somewhere Only We Know" and the overseas one was a different song that I didn't recognise).

I ended up buying the UK DVDs and they match the NZ broadcast, but I still don't know which song is "correct" (ie. which was present for the original UK broadcast).

Who Framed Roger Rabbit? - uncensored HDTV airing(s)
Time

Thanks for uploading; it looks great :)

I just watched it and noticed something - at 3:52 there is a sign that says "do not disturb the bees! - thank you". At 3:53 Roger moves in front of it and it loses a bit of the text; it's more like "thank yo" at that point. It then pops back to "thank you" at 3:54.

This is NOT due to your encode; I went back to the original Blu-ray and the same thing happens there. Does anyone have a DVD or LD copy that they can check to see whether the same thing happens (if the quality is good enough to tell in the first place)? I'm just curious as to whether this is an issue with the Blu-ray or whether it's actually an animation error.

I'm not complaining; I'm just curious :)

Harmy's THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK Despecialized Edition HD !!!MKV and AVCHD v2.0 NOW AVAILABLE!!!
Time

Harmy said:

Well, regardless, it's hopefully all solved now :-)

I will wait before I render again though, in case more problems are discovered, because with all the effects applied, it takes over an hour to render the credits and I've already rendered them at least three times so far.

 Unfortunately these fixes (typos in the credits - quote is from page 77) didn't make it into the released 2.0; it looks like you forgot to re-render them. Something for the 2.1 to-do list :)

And since I haven't said it yet, thank you very much, Harmy - 2.0 really is excellent and I truly appreciate all the work that you've put into it.
