TFA: A Gentle Restructure

I can’t recall if the opening theme music was going to be replaced in this edit or not (I know other editors have and will replace it in their own edits). I know most people have planned to use the prequel version of the opening theme, but back when TFA came out on DVD, Adywan posted an edited version of the TFA theme that made it sound more like the London Symphony Orchestra’s versions that he planned to use for his own personal edit. Don’t know how to describe it, more “grandiose”? Anyway, I can’t remember when exactly he posted it but I went ahead and reuploaded the version he shared if anyone wanted to use it for their own or we wanted to consider using it for this version, since it is just an enhanced version of TFA’s own theme rather than using a different movie’s theme.

I know it’s outside the scope of this edit but it would be a much needed improvement

Hell, it’s such a simple, almost benign change I don’t even know if I’d say it’s outside the scope of the edit.

Oh yes, the theme definitely needs to be replaced. The version as is sounds so anemic. It depressed me so much in the theater.

I will agree that there is one big difference between a male being harassed and a female being harassed. Most men are bigger and stronger than women, that is just the biology works. So when a man gets harassed, he can defend himself because he is stronger, most of the time. But when a woman gets harassed, most of the time she can not.

I find it kind of unsettling that sexual abuse in the public conscious is all about men preying on women… it goes both ways… I’d know.

Found confirmation of the Porg theory I mentioned a while ago.

When we first scouted Skellig Michael, the island where we shot Luke’s stuff, it was covered in puffins," says Johnson. "It’s a bird sanctuary, actually. So there were all these adorable little puffins all over the island. It was first just like, ‘OK, let’s come up with the Star Wars version of that.’

The rest of the article is good stuff too, by the way.

Psycho just messaged my girlfriend and said he plans to kill her and then himself. She already has an order of protection against him. If the cops don’t do anything about it this time then I guess I’ll just end up in jail myself because this isn’t gonna fly.

Jesus fucking Christ. I really hope they lock this psycho up.

Well, try to keep an open mind until you actually see it.

I have an open mind I just don’t want to see it. I hate Christmas and find it the most depressing time of the year.

Yeah, I don’t think I’ve really enjoyed Christmas since I was, like, twelve…

I, however, am still very much looking forward to TLJ.

Sorry to interject on the Zelda thread, but since the title still says Video Game Thread…

Nier: Automata finally came in the mail (ordered it on Black Friday and they sold out before filling all the orders). Anyone played it? What am I in for?

Can confirm, the car exploded on a delivery. That’s why I disappeared for so long. 😉

Well, there’s that, and then there’s the massive increase in maintenance needed.

FYI, the “first cut” would be the assembly cut, which is an assembly of every scene and line in the script, which may even include repeated shots from different angles/takes. There’s no polish whatsoever to an assembly cut, it’s just everything thrown into a timeline and put in script order.

My guess is the first “polished” cut was around 2h45m or so. That would probably still include every scene in the script, but in an edited, watchable form, rather than as a rough assembly.

The Simpsons: Embiggened Edition

I might have to try my hand at applying some of these techniques to the first 4 volumes of Futurama as well. I got decent results from Handbrake’s decomb filter when making a 23.976fps encode, but there are still issues here and there in each episode.

I didn’t count the Scorpion King cuz I’d heard he wasn’t finished when the studio rushed the film to theaters. I just did some research on it now, and I can’t find a clear-cut answer, though that one is tossed around here and there.

Anything else you don’t count that we should be aware of?

Just watched that clip on YouTube. First time I watched a scene from any of these shitty movies. Cavill plays a great Superboy Prime.

Wait, is that seriously Cavill from Justice League?

I haven’t seen it yet, but heard about the mustache removal stuff. I didn’t think it was that bad…he’s unrecognizable…

NJVC Custom Bluray Set of Harmy’s Despecialized Editions now available on Mega

Well, video quality would be the same since you’re not reencoding, and assuming you already have the MKV itself, it would be significantly faster to download. You’d just lose out on the extra stuff included in the BD50 version.

Of course, you’d have to make sure you remux the MKV to include the same audio and sub tracks that are on the BD25 version before you patch it in, otherwise you’ll probably run over on file size and the menus won’t point to the same tracks.

I think the question is, could the files for the 25GB version be posted with the video m2ts stream removed so people could download that and use the multiAVCHD method to patch in the MKV video. That way they can make the 25GB discs from the MKVs they already have without having to essentially re-download the entire video/audio portion.

Of course, if the video was compressed for the 25GB version, that won’t work, but if the video is untouched from the MKV, it should, right?

Episodic versions of Futurama movies
Time

Okay, so here’s where I’m at now:

Nothing’s worked, and I’ve wasted a bunch of cash using paid versions of some of this software in the hope that the Hulu recording functionality was behind a paywall, to no avail.

Software I’ve tried that has not worked:

  1. KeepVid
  2. Freemake Video Downloader
  3. RTMPDumpHelper
  4. GetFLV

At this point I’m unfortunately thinking I might have to use a screen recording program (which I really didn’t want to use as it’s going to reencode, might not capture the correct framerate so ghosting is a risk, and won’t grab the highest resolution) to do this, which would mean I’d definitely be using the 1080p iTunes copies for movies 1 and 2 and Blu-Ray rips for movies 3 and 4 as a base, only using Hulu video and audio when absolutely necessary.

If anyone has any ideas for programs to download the video stream itself directly from Hulu (GetFLV almost got me there, but I ended up with a bunch of useless empty “video files”) instead of recording the screen, please, I’m all ears!

The Alien blu-ray is one of the best looking transfers I’ve seen of a sci-fi film of that era. I’d be very pleased indeed if a new official release of the OT came out looking like that.

I heard that there were some issues with the color timing.

Aliens has some serious revisionist color timing going on.

Alien looks a little different from the earlier home video versions some grew used to, but it’s not obviously wrong the way Aliens clearly is. It’s entirely possible that it’s actually very close to what it would have looked like in 1979.

I do have a copy that was color-matched to a 90’s Laserdisc that I quite like the look of, but IMO there’s nothing actually wrong with the BR color timing for Alien.
