I am pretty sure Jloader has nothing to do with torrents, if I remember correctly.

Not sure if I can help you here...

I appreciate it, but it seems that this thread is not going well in regards to it's original use, I am not sure anyone will come to this thread for awhile, the way it's looking...

The blu ray is not so good a source for reconstruction Lucas removed the original intended techniscope film grain with dvnr.

The same was done to American Graffiti.

What source do you suggest? I know it has been de-noised/grained, but atleast the outcome should be better than the angrysun version's quality.

While I don't have any objections to it (as the nature of these fan preservations is open source), if we're both doing it we could despecialize different shots and get it done with more efficiency.

If you're interested, my conform is edited from the raw VC-1 Blu-ray rip (thanks to MeGUI's AVS generator which works flawlessly on CS4) and clips to be despecialized are exported at 1:1 resolution in Lagarith, where I use a 1920x822 center crop (the Blu-ray is *very slightly* windowboxed at 1-3 pixels and that's how much of the letterboxing bars I leave in to ensure I have the entire image).

 Well i am using a different editor, but it shouldn't matter much as long as we render the video similarly (Resolution, bitrate). I am using Sony Vegas Pro 12, but i also have Photoshop and other software at my disposal. So far what have you done? How will we plan this? I am using the AngrySun version, and the DC Bluray rip (Obviously). So far i color corrected the font at the beginning credits to be the same as the original.

Forgot to mention what FPS are you working with? I think it's best to use 24fps because it's the FPS that is used by most movies.

Also, what about the Buck Rodgers trailer? At this point in time i have color corrected it to match the original.

I'm matching colors to the Angrysun rip for now (with Black Input levels calibrated so the letterbox bars are black), first by waveform then calibrating by eye. I also re-color the LD cuts when necessary to match the corrected Blu-ray footage. When a better source comes along I'll match to that.

On that note, what's the opinion on the NTSC LD's colors versus the PAL LD?

Do you mind me making a despecialized version myself? There's no harm in having a choice between 2 versions.

Got my hands on a THX 1138 Bluray from a friend (Bought it from him) and he let me rip it with his computer (He has a bluray drive) and i might try dabbling with despecializing. Though i do have to wait as he is ripping it and i will get it in a week.

Edit: Does anyone have some info on original individual scene colors (For accurate color correction) or any other info? Or even a rip from a good source? That would really help! Thanks.

I discovered it's not actually an LPCM track, that was just the audio stream for the menu screen haha!

I thought the angrysun audio had better dynamic range while the other rip sounded a bit more compressed.

I did try to port over the audio but the sync seems different and drifts.

I will need to check it out again.

Edit: Nevermind, i was thinking of a different rip.

Maybe a FPS timing issue? If i remember correctly the AVI rip is 29.97 fps.

 I may take the LPCM track from Angrysun and marry it to the AVI version.

Hmm, i actually felt the angry sun edition had pretty bad sounding audio if i remember correctly, and the AVI version had decent quality.

If i had the blu-ray (And a blu-ray drive for that matter) i could try to despecialize it, but seeing as i don't have those 2 things, i can't. I believe i already have that original LD rip that NeonBible mentioned, very watchable.

AVI version of another LDrip. The picture quality on the former is pretty rough, and to my surprise the AVI has much better picture despite being compressed to 700mb. It's very watchable.

Hahaha! Is that the one with the hair on some frames?

So, what you are doing is basically editing the bluray version and adding the original's missing scenes, rotoscoping the HD version to recreate the missing original scenes from the original version to keep the quality, or atleast most of it.
