There’s a print for sale on 35mmforum if you guys are interested.

RU.08 said:

$650 + postage (in the US). Good overall condition. It’s over 3 hours though, so even the most affordable scanning options would still cost about $1K.

That print was finally sold…at $600 + postage.

I hope that the person that bought it is one of us.

In that case, one suggestion would be to fix the audio to fit the length of your final rendered video. But, there is a way you can do that without any trimming. You just have to adjust the duration of the audio to fit your finished video.

A free software download, like eac3to, can do that for you. Use it to demux the audio from the video, giving a .WAV file. Then, just adjust the duration–making it slow or fast.

Finally, mux your adjusted audio to your finished video. Check the beginning of the video and check the end of your video. If both ends are in sync, you’re done. If not, go back to eac3to again and adjust the audio to another duration time. You may have to play with the duration to get the right fit.

I, personally, have not used it, but other members here have.

I was hoping someone with experience in Premiere Pro would respond to your query by now, as I am not familiar with that software. However, with some sync’ing projects that I’ve done, I’ll attempt to answer.

From my reading, both the video and audio are from one source, the .VOB files, right? If that is the case: from your description of your sync’ing issue, when you imported the .VOB files to Premiere Pro, the frame rate of the video—the amount of frames displayed per second (fps)—may have changed, but the audio that was sync’d to the .VOB files remained the same. You may have to convert your restored video back to the fps it was in the .VOB files so that your finished video can be sync’d to the original audio.

So, first, compare the fps of the .VOB files, your imported video, and/or your finished video and see if there is a difference.

Anyone considering attending the event and doing an audio capture of this performance, so that it can be sync’d to the commercial Blu Ray?

As for listening to this audio with the GOUT: I suppose someone with exceptional audio-editing skills can make this happened, also. Even if sound-effects from the 2004 edition would appear out-of-place in the GOUT cut, it’s all about the performance of the music and sounds of the crowd.

The broadcast is to my surprise, uncensored with the expletives “bastards” and “horse shit” included but the first couple of minutes are missing because C4 began the broadcast earlier than billed (and even earlier than my PVR’s “padding” compensation feature). If I’d realised in time, I would’ve grabbed the time shifted +1 broadcast an hour later.

The portions that were not recorded: Would the shot in the beginning of the film where Bodine says, “You’re so full of shit, boss” be among them? That is the first expletive in the movie at 3 minutes and 19 seconds into it.

Perhaps we take the beginning parts of captures from the previous broadcasts–censored or otherwise–and edit them to your current capture.

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.

The runtime is 195 minutes, that is ten reels of 35mm, it is a beast. If you want to pony up the $700 in return freight, plus funds for the HDDs and scanning, then sure thing ;^) I’d be more than happy to send it to along to them 😃

In all seriousness I don’t currently have the 30TB storage to scan it here, and my scanner needs a new driver board, so it will be on the shelf anyway till that is replaced.
If the opportunity comes up to get it scanned, I will certainly get it done, at the moment it is going to sit in the archive for a while.

So, from my reading of this last post, what is involved is the cost of freight, scanning, and HDDs.

If anyone can make this happened, I’ll be the first to do a monetary donation to the project…well, maybe not the first, but I’ll donate 😃

Good luck.

The UK-broadcasts on 4 I’ve seen showed much more of that violence but in return such things as Fred Fleet screaming “Basterds!” into the phone are missing there.

It goes without saying that if a capture of the pre-2012 version is made where the violence is retained, but the dialogue is censored, there is no need to discard it. The audio from the DVD/BluRay can be used to replace it.

I contacted C4 to ask if there’s any possibility they’ll show it again in the near future, uncut and received the following response…

“Unfortunately there are no current plans to repeat this programme, however, I will pass on your interest for this film to be repeated post watershed to those responsible for our programming”

Let’s see what happens. 😃

Perhaps you can contact Channel 4 again to inquire about another broadcast of this film, as this year is the film’s 20th Anniversary.

E.T. 20th Anniversary Edition in HD ?
Time

Although totally unrelated to this project, I just uploaded on that popular organ of the human body an MKV version of this 2002 cut that is made from the following elements:

  • A 720p capture of the film from HDNET.
  • All of the audio tracks from the 2002 DVD release that I’ve sync’d to this capture which includes:
    • The 2002 English sound-mix in DTS 5.1 channel sound
    • The 2002 English sound-mix in Dolby Digital 5.1 channel sound
    • The 2002 French sound-mix in Dolby Digital 5.1 channel sound
    • The Live-Performance Audio from the premiere-screening at the Shrine Auditorium featuring John Williams’ Oscar-winning music score being performed live to picture, orchestra conducted by the composer, in Dolby Digital 5.1 channel sound

This capture was made by another member of that said forum and it was previously released in October 2016 in that forum as part of his BD50 ISO file, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial Archives [BD-50]. Unfortunately, in that ISO, one of the 2 audio streams, the live performance audio, was not sync’d property to this capture. With my own copy of that 2002 DVD, I made a rip of it, took out a few seconds—both at the beginning, just before the studio logo clip appears and at the end, just after the end credits; and muxed both the AC3 and DTS streams from that DVD to the capture. All the streams are properly sync’d to this video. That member gave me his permission to release this capture provided that it be kept in that forum.

Also, this capture has a HDNET MOVIES logo on the bottom right-side of the screen that is displayed for one time at the duration of 11 seconds.

Hopefully, this post will re-ignite this project for a higher-resolution quality of the reconstruction for this version of the film.

If this project does get restarted, please, let me know if I can help with the audio sync’ing/editing.

The Original Trilogy restored from 35mm prints

Say, Poita,
Are you aware that in the German Print/Reel 3 scan, there’s some cropping?

Here is one frame from the scan of the German print.

And here is the same frame from the UK print.

In the area between the 2 yellow lines is the picture information as it appears in the scan of the German print. The areas above the upper yellow line and below the bottom yellow line are what are missing in the German print scan.

Was this a glitch in the scanning device?

  • Rev

If you need to cure your 5.1 fix, on the 'spleen there are audio files for the Star Wars Original Trilogy (aka. GOUT) that uses the rarely heard 1997 Special Edition sound mix made from the original CinemaDTS CD-ROM discs. Of course, portions of the audio include the sound mix from the GOUT to patch over footages where the 1997 SE audio would be out-of-place.

Just mux these to the MKV video and you are good to go.

Here are the shots that have missing frames from the red –faded version of the portion of Reel 2 from the German print of ESB.

As you have requested, I am identifying the skip-frames of these shots from the scan as file names that are posted on the bottom of each frame in the scan. I hope that I am interpreting your request.

For GOUT References, I’ll be using this timestamp format–Time (mm:ss.ff) / Frames numbers,

GOUT Frames Missing: 7. They should appear between Files Names, 01:01:58:22/2854 and 01:01:58:23/2855. In those 7 missing frames, the static on the viewing screen would dissolve to the image of the officers. In the German print, the static image on the viewing screen jump-cuts to the image of the officers.

There are two skip frames in this shot.
The 1st one occurs between file names 01:02:09:18/3114 and 01:02:09:19/3115. In 01:02:09:18/3114, there are two dark horizontal lines on the bottom of that frame and on 01:02:09:19/3115, there is one dark horizontal line on the top of that frame.
The 2nd skip frame occurs after file number 01:02:10:07/3127, where there are two horizontal lines on the bottom of the screen

GOUT Reference:
Harmy’s : 23:29.06/33789-33910, Number of Frames: 122

GOUT Reference: Harmy’s ESB Despecialized Edition. MKV video, 23.975fps.
Additional Reference: Renegade Grindhouse ESB. M2ts video of release print scan, 23.975fps.

For each source of each shot, I’ll be using this format to describe position of the length of the video:

UK Print: 00:00.01/1-91, Number of Frames: 91

UK Print: 01:44.14/2614-3029, Number of Frames: 416
Comments: Missing 7 frames. To be honest, I can’t find where the skip-frame is in the UK print. The shot looks physically clean.

Vader’s Medium Shot

GOUT: 23:29.06/33789-33910, Number of Frames: 122
Renegade Grindhouse: 23:28.12/33771-33892, Number of Frames: 122
UK Print: 02:01.05/3030-3127, Number of Frames: 98
Comments: Missing 24 frames. I am taking a guess that the missing frames are from the tail-end of this shot because of the shot that follows…

Vader’s Viewing Screen: Ozzel gasps for air, Piett reacts

GOUT: 23:34.08/33911-34025, Number of Frames: 115
Renegade Grindhouse: 23:33.14/33893-34007, Number of Frames: 115

Comments: 98 frames missing from the the head-end of this shot.

GOUT: 32:30.14/46768-46918, Number of Frames: 151

UK Print: 10:35.12/15887-16000, Number of Frames: 114
Comments: 37 missing from the tail-end of this shot.

Total Number of Missing Frames: 176, over 7 seconds of footage

What is impressive about this print is that even though I know where the skip-frame is in a shot, I see no evidence of where a frame may have been damaged-- dried-on adhesive markings, a torn frame that is poorly pieced together, etc. Either some digital enhancement has been applied to the frame to remove the said anomalies or the person maintained this print very well.

JEDIT:
UK Print… Of course, I meant the German print. I’m sorry for that

Excuse me, but how do I convert the raw .wav files of the 1993 mixes from schorman’s collection to DTS-HD Master Audio?

I am planning on doing a separate MKA with lossless 1993 mixes since Harmy only added the 1993 mixes in lossy Dolby Digital format.

I know the 1993 mixes aren’t theatrical mixes but I am partial to them since they were the most polished pre-1997 mixes IMO and are my favorite.

To encode the .wav file of the 2-channel ’93 mix to DTS-HD MA bitstream, you’ll need the software, DTS Master Suite and that costs $1500.

A much cheaper and effective alternative would be to download the free audio software, Audacity, sync up the ‘93 two-channel mix to the audio of the despecialized edition, and save your edit as one 2-channel .wav file. Your new edited .wav file of the ’93 mix will still be lossless–no compression is applied. Then, add (or mux) your new wav file to the MKV video using another free software, MKVToolNix

That is how I did it when I edited schorman13’s LaserDisc audio rip of Raiders of the Lost Ark to fit litemakr’s Raiders LPP scan.
