Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows part 2 open matte broadcast

Andrea, why do you need to merge captures? This in itself is the best possible quality source of a WEB-DL. Plus this is 1080p. Do you have another 1080p source?

Yes, of course! This capture is great, but the one I have is very good, too; merging them would lead to delete eventual noise, while reveal some details; of course, it should be tested, as it not happen all the time. But, until now, I’ve seen that, even with seemlingly perfect sources, when merged with another (or other two, that’s even better), the quality usually improves - from a bit to a lot.

Halloween [spoRv] *BD-25 RELEASED*

Thanks for your kind words, and for the advice!

Subtitles promptly corrected; if anyone want the correct SRT file, drop me a PM; of course the revised version would be used in the remastered version.

Aliens (1986) open matte
Time

Anyone interested in this project?

Aliens open matte test clip #1: https://we.tl/WqiNF5IuW6 (906MB, link expiration date 2017-06-23)

Known problems:
first part of the shots inside the rescue ship has top slice darker
horizontal pan over the Earth is stuttering - my fault 😉

Please download and review; apart the previous noted one, the other slices seems consistent with the rest of the picture, in colors, brightness, grain - I’ve used the new Alien custom made grain plate from the very same film.

Waiting for your opinions!

Well, I have upgraded to a powerful PC few months ago - about ten times faster than old one… so I’m ready on the hardware side… now I have to find time, and a lot of HDD space I’m lacking lately! 😉

Is there someone who could record HDTV broadcastings?
Time

If so, there is a desperate needing to record Harry Potter saga - it would be broadcasted today, tomorrow and on Monday (2017 May 27, 28, 29), on Freeform - http://freeform.go.com - schedule: http://ew.com/tv/2017/05/26/memorial-day-weekend-tv-marathons-2017

The only requirements are that the movies should be full screen 16:9, and the recording should be 1080i/p, a bit-perfect copy would be preferable, but an high quality capture will do.

HP 7 (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 1) is the most wanted, but the others would be welcome as well!

Thanks in advance!!!

Harry Potter saga - open matte
Time

@Beber: AFAIK, HP 1 HDTV is 100% open matte, so technically this version would be 99.8% open matte and 0.2% cropped!

@Papai2013: sorry, you are right, but with all those sources I forgot to credit you, please forgive me! First post edited to reflects your help (both here and there), thanks again!

  • Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002)
    BD 2.40:1 original aspect ratio
    HDTV 1.78:1 open matte
    PLAN: video using HDTV as only source, restored; audio and subs from BD untouched
  • Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004)

    HDTV 1.78:1 pan & scan/open matte
    PLAN: video using HDTV as only source, restored; audio and subs from BD untouched
  • Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005)
    BD 2.40:1 original aspect ratio
    HDTV 1.78:1 open matte
    PLAN: video using HDTV as only source, restored; audio and subs from BD untouched
  • Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007)
    BD 2.40:1 original aspect ratio
    WEBdl 1.78:1 open matte
    PLAN: video using WEBdl as only source, restored; audio and subs from BD untouched
  • Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009)
    BD 2.40:1 original aspect ratio
    HDTV 1.78:1 pan & scan/open matte
    PLAN: video using two different HDTV as sources, restored; audio and subs from BD untouched
  • Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 (2010)
    BD 2.40:1 original aspect ratio
    HDTV 1.78:1 mainly pan & scan with limited shots
    and complete “three brothers” animation in open matte
    PLAN: video using HDTV 720p as main source, BD as second source for cropped shots, SDTV as third source for logo removal on open matte shots, result restored; audio and subs from BD untouched
  • Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 (2011)
    BD 2.40:1 original aspect ratio
    HDTV 1.78:1 mixed open matte/pan & scan
    "IMAX" SD 2.40:1/1.78:1 mixed open matte/letterbox
    PLAN: video using HDTV 1080i as main source, 720p as second source for logo removal, result restored; audio and subs from BD untouched

Notes:

The fullscreen DVDs of HP 1,2,4,5,6 are 1.33:1 open matte, but, apart in rare cases where there is a bit more image (and a lot less), they are in practice contained within the 1.78:1 frame; for this reason - and also because they are low res - they will not be taken in consideration

HP 3 on DVD is pan & scan; on HD is mainly pan&scan but has more image than fullscreen DVD on both sides, even if cropped in comparison to widescreen; it retains few lines of image more on top and bottom

HP 6 is the same, but retains a bit more few lines in comparison; actually, this is applicable only to pan&scan scenes; there are many scenes which are open matte, can’t quantify them for the moment, but are not surely scarce like ep. 7

HP 1 2 3 4 6 do need IVTC, while 5 does not; HP 8 has some residual deinterlace artefact; HDTV would benefit of deblocking, denoise, and a grain plate, as well as the WEBdl, even if for the latter difference is less evident

HP 6 7 8 have logo that would be wiped away using a second (or third) source

HP 7 best currently available version is 720p - a 1080i/p HDTV would be very welcome!

HP 8: an eventual “IMAX” reconstruction could be taken in consideration as a side project

HP 1 2 3 4 6 7 8 HDTV and HP 5 WEBdl would be used as main sources

Of course, the usual 5 languages (audio and subtitle tracks) would be added.

Thanks to:
babouin for HP 6 1080i, HP 8 1080i, other episodes, general help
nightstalkerpoet for two HP 7 SDTV, general help

The goal of this project is to preserve the entire Disney Animated Canon up to Fantasia 2000, with all of the details of the cels, in full 4K.

OK, understood. So you have all those titles on 35mm films, in good shape, and a film scanner, or at least the means to scan them all, right?

this massive community-wide effort will restore the following titles for 4K Blu-Ray, preserving all of the detail in the original cels. All of these titles have the 1989 Walt Disney Classics logo before them.

Please explain better, so that even a non-English native speaker like me could understand.

Thanks!
