Superman I-III extended TV cuts: Where have the preservations gone?
Time

I don’t know if there are multiple releases or not, but that it’s not uncommon for there to be multiple releases of a film on a particular video format, ex-rental versions with bonus features stripped out, reissues with different or more/fewer bonus features, etc., and since it had been out on BD for a while, figured there might have been a “silent reissue” or so which differed from the original.

Time

Well, I figured if I could dig up the proper BD sources, I could create an abbreviated version with the HD material I had, then downgrade that to SD and cut it together with the RIC to create a complete version that still looks superior to the existing version…

(For what it’s worth, I’ve rebuilt about a quarter of CardCaptors and the first 8 eps of Robotech - it might be out of my reach but it might not. I guess it’s like trying to pull a Harmy in reverse.)

Dragon Ball Super Toonami Asia dub by Bang! Zoom Entertainment
Time

We have been looking, without success, for someone in the region who would be able to record it for us. 😕

It is extremely rare for Asian-market English dubs to make it to video anywhere (Cardcaptor Sakura is a counterexample). This would be important to capture for preservation.

Dragon Ball Z, and the Dragon Ball series in general
Time

All this Ocean Z footage is giving me a headache. I just got new copies of a few episodes from a FOAF on IRC.

I lost my rebuilt ED, I think, so I’m going to have to redo that, and that’s going to be a pain. Once I do, though, I think it won’t be difficult to throw together a few test episodes, for the maybe 10 or 12 episodes where I think I have the whole episode, the recap, the preview, and a title card taken from the R1 singles (this is the magic).

OK, the question came up, is any of TFA 16:9 on WOWOW. No - it’s all 2.35, sorry.

I’m not sure what I’m supposed to be looking for, as far as non-2.35:1 scenes go, but I have the TS and have been preparing it for upload.

Alien speech is doublesubbed - both English (in the usual place) and Japanese (in the top right).

I’m downloading the subtitled TFA to one of my own servers (had to move a lot of crud around to make room). The routing isn’t as good to my French servers as it is to my friend’s server in Sweden, but I didn’t want to involve it this time. The file is a monstrous 23.2 GB, and probably not very useful, unless maybe the subtitled alien lines are done in such a way as to be clear…

I dunno, it doesn’t make sense to me either. And not just the bitrate, because WOWOW is mpeg-2.

I already did, unfortunately. I felt like I was abusing other people’s resources badly enough with the OT (we’re talking about 60 GB of stuff which I had to stash on a friend’s server because I had no room on my own), but it at least had some utility, because of the fact that the OT movies have multiple Japanese dubs. With hardsubbed prequel rips, and they were unquestionably post-2012 masters, I was much more concerned that I’d be wearing out my welcome.

I could, I suppose, give it another shot, but again - hardsubs. One can’t make use of the audio for anything, and one can’t make use of the video for anything, so it’s about 70 GB of wasted space.

Oopsie! Looks like today’s prequels marathon is SUBTITLED. Reject?

(ETA: Confirmed. Yeah. It’s just the new Disney digital masters with subtitles, and they’re twice the height of the letterbox. I’m sorry, but I think not even the completists here will have a use for this, and while I can’t abort at this point, I don’t think I’m going to be uploading these. Sorry, guys.)

Looks like we’re about to start in 15 minutes or so.

If I’m reading the control panel correctly, TPM will be capped on one tuner, then AotC and RotS will both be capped on the other tuner.

This is WOWOW Cinema, not WOWOW Prime, so it’s possible the bitrates etc. may be different.
