CABAL (Alternate extended cut of Nightbreed)
Time

Just finished to watch “Nightbreed - The Cabal Cut” retail version. Some considerations:

  • of 12 minutes added, I think about 9/10 are very good quality, probably they used the deletes scenes; still, no color correction
  • the rest has an awful quality - VHS “as is” including noise and drop-outs; the shots which originally had timecodes, were cut on the bottom, and a black box is placed over the top timecode… and almost all could be dropped, as most shots were mere fillers.

So, I think this project still have a reason to be finished, maybe using the good parts of this retail version as source.

Star Wars saga - Extra Extended Edition (1080p)
Time

Looking for an 8TB now, picking the best price… cost would be the same in Italy or Germany, more or less. I’m slowly making order in my electronic gears, and that HDD isn’t on top of the list, but it will be bought soon - I must also admit one member said he wanted to donate one drive, so let’s wait few days for it, who knows! 😄

oh ok, so you don’t use RG or UL on ncrypt for example

if not I have to give this a pass!

“Oh no, I must live with the fact ilyasdesign40 didn’t get my project…”

Not only I worked a lot, for free, but I also MUST upload my project on a preferred place, with preferred method, following a newbie, never-did-something-for-the-community-apart-vomit-bad-things-and-askinkg-everything-on-the-whole-forum request?

Well, this is the kind of people that let me think to stop making projects right now… don’t want to be banned to have answered you in a way you deserve, so I stop here.

Please DO NOT POST ANYMORE in any of my threads, thanks.

Well, in motion it works well, as the green blanket is not severe as on other films released this year (Wonder Woman or The Mummy, for example), hence I decided to leave it “as is”.

To whom it may concern: the new version is out - Alien: Covenant IMAX [Fundamental Collection] - now all the IMAX/open matte shots are perfect, no more subtitles and/or logo remains, and eventual top/bottom “slices” differences in brightness and/or color, due to the use of two sources, are completely gone.

More, it’s the usual multi language edition (English, French, German, Italian, Spanish audio and subtitles) plus the Russian tracks, and the English commentary with related foreign subs.

Now you can find it in that demonic place. Have fun!

Star Wars: deleted and extended scenes * database *
Time

I’m aware of many (or all?) of them, but too lazy to edit the first post! 😄

It would be great to have a small photographic database with a screenshot (or more) of any deleted shot/scene, just to have a visual guide and let the search easier.

Would someone (else than me 😉 ) accomplish this task?

Harry Potter saga - open matte
Time

I’m sure DVD-BOY was right.

Back on topic, it would be finished ASAP, because there is also another source (probably) to be used to get even higher quality.

And, as clutchins wrote, I update the progress on fanres, mainly.

Halloween [spoRv] *BD-25 RELEASED*
Time

I’m pretty sure THX DVD color grading is not the one found on theaters, but one of the various “DP approved” versions (which is the right one, frankly I can’t say…)

Now, if LD color grading is sufficiently different from other BD ones, then it could be interested to use LD as color reference.

kk650's Regraded Titanic (1997) IMAX (blanket yellow tint removed from 3D blu-ray)

I personnally prefer the LD master that came out in letter box with the first DVD in which colors were even more natural I think.

May you get some screenshot comparison? I noted sometimes differences between LD and DVD color grading, but usually the DVD version was released several years after LD.

And yes, this grading is a lot better than 3D BD, which is overly teal.

Raiders of the Lost Ark - Bluray color balanced

Dre, are you using WOWOW as color reference? I think so, but I would like to have a confirmation.

DVD color grading is different from both WOWOW and BD, and, IIRC, LD has another different grading, too; can’t say the latter is the closest to theatrical one (there is a proper 35mm scan, after all), but, again, IIRC there is at least one LD version taken from release print (first Italian version); sadly, it’s p&s, so I wonder if there is a widescreen version as well (from release print).
