MKV TO ISO - FILE SIZE INCREASE.???
Time

Hi Guys,

So I have a few MKV files that I am burning to Blu-Ray disc’s I am using tsMuxer to create an ISO from the MKV but when I do this the ISO ends up being a larger size…? does anyone know why this is…?

Example:
MKV SIZE - 29gb
ISO SIZE - 31.4gb

Thanks in advance.

LETS PRETEND: A Star Wars Technicolor print is for sale

How is it possible to have a technicolor print if the film was not shot on 3 strip technicolor…??

It can still be printed on 3 strip technicolor even if it wasn’t shot that way. Same as how you can have a 35mm film printed onto 70mm stock.

JEDIT: Or at least it could if Technicolor was still doing these kinds of prints, but Star Wars was actually the last movie they used this process for before shutting down their labs.

Oh ok got you cheers for the info bud… do you know why there would have been a need to create a 3 strip technicolor print since the film was already shot on the newer 35mm single strip colour film…???

Harmy mkv to blu ray disc...?
Time

alexp120 said:

As an alternative, you can just send the MKV file to a USB stick, then insert that stick into the USB port of your Blu Ray player. I’ve been doing that for years.

Beware: some Blu Ray players will not play the DTS audio tracks, like my LG model.

Yeah I could do that cheers mate, I will have to check it out as I also have an LG model.

Cheers for the suggestion.

Time

Hey Guy’s,

Hey guy’s I prefer to watch movies on my tv as opposed to my laptop, did anoyone put the mkv on a BD disc…?

I know he has an ISO also but I do not understand why it is only half the size of the mkv…? I take it the quality will be much lower…?

Cheers,

What happened to all the original SW prints.?

IIRC, Mike Verta has reported that the “destroy order” is still in effect. If Lucasfilm (now Disney) happens to get their hands on prints of the OOT, they will destroy them.

Just seems so stupid to destroy a piece of history, fair enough it may have once been common practise but to destroy a piece of film from that ers today is just ridiculous…

Actually (again, IIRC) the original destroy order dates from when there were 1997SE film prints out there. Theatres would get the reels, send them back to the studios, and the studios would send them back out again (not destroy them). That was normal. The order was to destroy all copies of the OOT as they came back in, so that only 1997SE prints would go back out. So even worse than you thought…

LOL…!! Just when I thought it could not get any worse you hit me with that…!!! I do not know what to say I am actually disgusted at that, I take it the order is from George Lucas and I just wonder what he hates so much about the original print of his films…? He can not seriously think all the shit cgi he added makes a better movie… I still have nightmares from the first time I saw Jabba in the hanger lol…

As I understand it, in most cases, the prints were either returned to the studio or destroyed:

destroying a print with a saw

Shipping prints around the country (and the world) is expensive, so it was often left to the Theaters to dispose of the prints. Some would just go out back in the dumpster, and may have been rescued by collectors, while others may have been taken by theater employees rather than being destroyed.

If you ever Google “Roddy McDowall FBI” you’ll find out just how illegal it was (and no doubt still is, at least in strictly legal terms) to be caught with prints in your house. The 35mm prints will always belong to the studios.

Obviously a few did survive, and we’re all very grateful that they did. In fact, given the red fading of the Eastman stock of hte 1960s and 1970s, even the studios were grateful that some of their prints had been rescued by collectors because without them some films may have been gone for good.

Bloody hell… I wish I never asked LOL… all those original prints that must have been destroyed…!! I take it the studio keeps a master copy for archival purposes…?

Imagine being lucy enough to be walking past the dumpster and finding it full of 35mm movies…!

TN1 sort of imploded, so who really knows what’s going on there. I know that there are plans to release a recolored and cleaned up version of the Grindhouse soon, so keep an eye out for that.

Will do, and I was going to ask whatever happened to team negative 1 it from the post’s I have read it seemed to go sour with the release of ESB…? Did something happen.?

Nothing happened to the members of the team, but some members of this community made some (false) accusations against them and their account here was banned.

Damn… did they get there account reinstated once the accusations were proven false… are they still operating elsewhere…?

Harmy's RETURN OF THE JEDI Grindhouse 35mm LPP

Is this the same as Harmy ROTJ 2.5…? or was this a different release.?

Harmy’s ROTJ 2.5 is a reconstruction of the theatrical version based off the Blu-rays, in an attempt to create a version of the movie as high quality as possible. On the other hand, this release is just a straight-up scan of a film reel from the movie’s original theatrical release. It has a lot more film-damage and doesn’t have quite as much detail and clarity in the image, but it does have the advantage that what you’re seeing is 100% the same as what was shown in theaters in the eighties. Which one is better is really up to personal preference.

WOW… I would love a copy of this one if it is a straight up sacn from a genuine print, I don’t mind the film damage I just want to see the version that was ment to be seen… Cheers bud.
