Robotech: The Untold Story / The Movie
Time

Me and a few mates discovered the font used for locations and the credits, sadly it wasent a font, it was in a typeface book, and it had never been digitized, and ive sadly lost my images of it, ik the forum had somthing to do with identifying fonts from battlestar galactica, some of my screencaps of RTM where included to try and identify the font and find how far it went back.

The Brave Little Toaster DVD - Ideas on how to restore

Is the climax with Rob about to be crushed by the trash compactor SUPPOSED to have a thick red tint? Because the PAL DVD diminished it. Was it an issue with the print on the American DVD?

The tint could’ve been intentional in the original film, possibly the PAL transfer didn’t pick up on that visual cue.

ive not watched the film in years but i can tell you its Not on the VHS release. its probably either an issue when converting it to PAL ,sometimes colors can change, or it may be a issue when scanning the film (light exposure ect)

Does that mean I’ll never get to see it? That’s selfish.

That is not selfish at all, its still piracy.

I still want a copy of it!

Then create your own version, video stabilization is not that hard, i had to do it with my films on 16mm

You didn’t answer my question about the right Mac program.

You edited your original post, And i dont use a mac, i use a PC, Avisynth and virtualdub both work on mac’s

Togedu’s has posts suggesting that he would release and share it with others.

yes but he’s alloud to choose not to. similar to my restorations, i cant release them becasue of legal issues

What about all of those hundreds of other fan edits that exist out there? How come they haven’t been shut down because of legal issues?

All depends on the content. i cant release my restorations because i dont own the rights to the films and footage i have used.

MegaZone 23 Laserdisc Preservation (and other formats)
Time

Hellow guys, you may have seen my older post about a restoration to the short
-run film 'ROBOTECH: THE MOVIE", in my efforts to restore the film, ive aquired several copies of the MegaZone films on Varrying formats (VHD,LD,VHS).
I am Fully aware its now avalible on bluray, but i cant realy mix 1080p footage with scaled 480p footage, that would be an utter nightmare to work with.
So im looking for someone with acess to a VHD player (VIDEO HIGH DENSITY), a similar format to CED used in japan.
And a Laserdisc player. (i dont have one myself yet) and im willing to ship out the discs to be transfered, id prefer if you where within australia.

What is currently in my possesion/Collection:

  1. MegaZone 23 Premium box (a collection of 3 discs, Part 1, Part 2 and Part 2 English version) witch featurers a rarly seen english dub produced by HARMONY GOLD to teach Japanese audiences English.
  2. MegaZone 23 Part 2 Special Film (Similar to part 2 ENG, its a VHS copy of the english dub, additional footage is included at the begining of the film, it was commisioned by harmony gold for ROBOTECH THE MOVIE.
  3. MegaZone 23: SPECIAL MEMORY. A bonus VHD given away with cirtian JVC Victor VHD units, its a collection of music from the film synced to some scenes from the film, and some footage of the Vocals being recorded, Basicly its a music video.

That is all for now, hoping to find someone willing to help me archive and preserve these VHD’s and LD’s, Once they are done, ill be releasing them on MYSPLEEN for a short period.
Kalhi~

ROBOTECH THE MOVIE PRESERVATION/Fan edit
Time

Hello everyone.

Im here to tell you guys about my effort to preserve the little known and Somewhat lost film
ROBOTECH THE MOVIE/THE UNTOLD STORY.
http://img01.deviantart.net/1fb7/i/2017/128/1/3/robotech_the_movie__remastered__poster__by_darkspire17-db8mbxj.png

My Plan:
I will be reconstrucing the film using multiple sources (DVD,Bluray,Laserdisc,VHS)
The plan is to edit together and reconstruct the film using ADV’s Remaster of SUPER DIMENSION CAVALRY: SOUTHERN CROSS
And the streamline pictures release of MEGAZONE 23

History:

The film was played for around 3 months in the dalas metroplex area back in 1986. given A VERY SMALL US RELEASE
but a somewhat decent world wide release eg. VHS in the United Kingdom,Laserdic in the Netherlands, and a VHS release in parts of Latin america.
Even a broadcast on South African TV (no known recordings) and lastly a Spanish language VHS dub.

What i require to finish the project is:
A nice quality audio rip of the film (ntsc or converted from PAL to NTSC)
EDIT: i have gotten my hands on the MEGAZONE 23 PREMIUM BOX (Laserdisc), it includes the ending animation, aswell as a copy of the special edition of the ps3 game AOI GARLAND (it includes a bonus DVD with a dub of part 2 and the ending animation).

Color correction work:
Below is an old album (outdated) showing the color correcting Megazone23 needed to match the extra footage.
This was done in Virtualdub.
http://imgur.com/a/ag04F

EXTRAS:
Ive gathered all promos for the film i could (some have been reconstructed to edit in the megazone 23 footage that harmony gold removed due to licensing)

  1. Alternate opening (using THE UNTOLD STORY Sub title,Used in an Older print and commercials, Sourced from A&E Robotech Boxset)
  2. Public access promotion of the film (featuring carl macek, Sourced from Robotech Legacy Collection)
  3. DALLAS TRAILER (a small trailer promoting the film in dalas, Sourced from A&E Robotech Boxset)
  4. Theatrical trailer (3 mins) Reconstructed
  5. TV Trailer (Megazone 23 footage added back in, Sourced from A&E Robotech Boxset)
  6. Deleted scenes (From the original Release of Megazone 23)
  7. GALAXY OF THE STARS '86 Trailer (4 minuet trailer,Featuring deleted scenes from the “final cut”, Sourced from youtube, Reconstructed)
  8. DAPDX commentary track (DESTROY ALL PODCASTS DX) of Robotech the movie.
  9. Music only track (some songs left out due to them not being released)
    10. Fan commentary Featuring dakspire17 (me) and possible guests: Boinger (of macross FAN EDIT fame) Jonathan Switzer (ROBOBLOG CHRONICLES)
    11. Un-remastered video track (original vhs rip)
  10. MEGAZONE 23 (in English) Dubbed by STREAMLINE PICTURES(Carl maceks anime distribution company)
  11. Storyboard ending (storyboards for the ending that harmony gold commissioned for the film)
  12. Storyboard Opening (storyboards of the opening of the film)
  13. Commissioned Footage. a 12 minuet video showing the extra footage that was created for the film (Sourced from Atlus Bonus Dvd)
  14. Music Videos (One from the film, and one from the others from a VHD of Megazone Special memory) subs included.
  15. A small documentary on the remastering process (created by me)
  16. DAPDX (DESTROY ALL PODCASTS DX) Megazone 23 commentary
  17. Theater Previews for Megazone 23 (Sourced from the Premium box)
