Macross: Do You Remember Love?

Thanks for the update.

Bummer about your computer problems. Glad to hear you have a good solution.

Will you include an option for original theatrical black only end credits?

It's not clothing. Not a release date (Still way too soon for that). Not another print. Not more screenshots. It's from an idea one of the original member of the group had.

Team Negative1

If it's Star Wars cut & timed to match the Dark Side of the Moon, we're all going to be very disappointed.

 speak for yourself 

Okay, fine. But Funky Cold Medina would be way better.

 I'd be ok with that.

Well, it is Sunday morning. I've noticed over the years that many people go offline for a time and will return either Sunday afternoon or evening.

I lost my internet connection.  As of today, it was seeded through to ALL those waiting.  As promised.

I hope we will have some folks stay on and seed.  It would help immensely.

Enjoy!!!

I'm glad you're back and finished seeding the torrent.

I hope everything with your connection works out.

And yes, I will continue to seed.

You are welcome mackit.  My connection isn't huge so I'm glad folks are being patient.  I will stay on seeding til a few folks get it 100% and then I'm going to let them take over.

Enjoy!!!! 

 No worries about how long it will take.

My philosophy is: good things take time. So, I'm willing for it to take time for a product of quality.

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan: ABC cut

Here's the scene as it appears in the ABC TV cut.  If your friend's recording matches, then he has what we hope he has.

Thanks for the link.

I grew up with the ABC version with the tubolift scene from the link Chewtobacca put up. One thing always confused me about that scene when I was watching it in the 80's: when Kirk says " you may ask", he presses a button on the turbolift controls. I could never understood why he did that, nor McCoy's subsequent line when the doors open.

But, looking at my Director's Edition of TWOK with the static turbolift scene, when both Kirk & Saavik enter and the doors close, you can clearly hear a sound for the lift, indicating it is moving. When Saavik says "May I speak sir?", she touches the control panel, and the sound stops, indicating that the lift stopped and the button is a stop button. When Kirk says "You may ask" and presses the button, the sound resumes indicating the lift is moving again. When the doors open and McCoy asks "Who's been holding up the damn elevator?", his line makes sense.

Now, listening again to the ABC cut, Saavik never touches the stop button and the moving sound is continuous throughout their conversation. Now, Kirk still touches the button at "You may ask", but the sound was always there. When the doors open and McCoy asks his line, it doesn't really make sense.

While I prefer the acting in the ABC cut, the weird continuity error in it does make watching the scene a bit odd.

Now, if the scene existed in a good widescreen version, one could do some fancy editing and create a best of both worlds with that scene: cuts from one actor to the other, but including Saavik pressing the stop button, and editing the audio to have the sound stop when she presses the button and the sound resume when Kirk presses the button.

Ask him to tell us specifically about the turbolift scene between Alley & Shatner. Is it one single shot during for most of the conversation, or does it cut to each actor during each of their lines?

50G versions? That could fit on a 64GB USB flash drive.

They are quite small and lightweight now. Still a little pricey but it would be the ezast thing to ship.

 I bought a 64Gb flash for my girlfriend last October. It cost me £12. My mate said to me after, that anything above 32Gb in flash form is currently unstable and could loose its data. My GF stick still works fine.

 My GF still works my stick fine!

 Booerns!

Hi Poita and Matt:

I would be interested in a copy of the DYRL PCM audio file, too!  As well, could you walk me through on how to do a LD audio / video capture?  I have quite a few DYRL and Macross LDs on hand, but I'm not sure about the procedure. Thanks a lot!

I understand that Matt has been very busy with work and a big back log of other personal projects, so I would really like to get this project going.

I have the DYRL Limited Edition BD set that includes the Macross Flashback 2012 BD (DVD upscale) on hand.  And I have a few more DYRL audio tracks and fan subtitles that can be added onto the BD.

After 2+ months, my desktop computer is almost up to speed for HD video editing. Sony Vegas Pro 13 and Sound Forge 11 are installed on Windows 8.1 on an SSD, i7 4.5 GHz, 32 GB Ram and a 4 TB thunderbolt external hard drive. 

I just need to do some file back ups and get my GTX 580 3GB Classified video card water cooled, which will take me most of this week to do.  I'm likely to need some video editing, sound editing, BD authoring, BD cover art advice for this fan edit, since I have not done an HD fan edit before. 

I have been looking at these fanedit.org threads in preparation for this fan edit.

 While I'm really happy to see someone taking on this project, I just want to say to this about Evan's computer: drool !!!!!

I've registered and posted on their boards 2 days ago asking for an invite. So far, no answer. Do they normally take this long?

P.S. Not that I'm impatient, but I've been waiting for over a year for this project. Cannot wait to see it and bask in its awesomeness.

If you weren't impatient you would have waited longer than two days to come back here maybe looking for a quicker response.  LOL

We have had so much trouble with people flooding any thread they can for an invite only to hit n run over there and never come back here again that we changed how it was done.

I cannot stop someone here from sending you an invite via pm.  I am concerned about people signing up there only to hit n run.  They don't deserve the disrespect and neither do we.

Please give it a day or two longer then politely bump your request there.  Those folks are busy too.

Thanks  

Someone helped me out. I received an invite , as of this post, I'm 55% completed.

Jetrell, I have no intention of doing a snatch & run. While I may not have the greatest of connections, I'm planning on seeding these for quite a while (with a ratio of over 1).

As an FYI, I'm also a member at another private torrent site with a high ratio demand. I seed over 50 torrents there and my ratio is currently 3:1.

I understand your concerns, but you do not need to worry about me.

So simple, yet so beautiful at the same time.

The colours really work for each movie, and I like how you combined all 3 for the documentary disc.
