Ronster, it’s been a long time since I’ve encoded anything to DVD. But there is lots of freeware, you’ll probably know. Convertxtodvd I used to use. I watched the segments you uploaded, they were great. Personally I wouldn’t upscale. Perhaps leave it in the native quality and let people’s Tv’s do the upscaling. Many thanks for this great project.

This is the way I am feeling too… Leave it to hardware to upscale and keep the native resolution. I think this is the best solution I agree.

Quick update… Discovered a few flipped shots they have been flopped 😃

I also have tried a DVDlab version (maybe Pro?) about 10 years ago. At the time, I think it was one of the better ones, but the user interface wasn’t as friendly as DVD Architect Studio from memory. I noticed that the current layout looks very similar to the Vegas flow that DVD Architect Studio is part of. I don’t think I ever completed a project using it.

Whatever I choose to use It will be extremely basic and totally bare bones.

I have little desire for anything complicated and loads of menus and stuff.

I might model it to be similar to an old VHS that just plays but has chapters as a bonus to skip to a scene that is all i am planning for. There will be no subtitle track unless somone cares to create one.

But cheers for the info I need one that will create DVD9 anyway.

I was reading about how the last avatar anime was up-scaled to 720p and colour-corrected, but I have not figured out how to do it myself.

Or even Neat Video stand-alone or video edit plug-in can be used for
up-scaling and some digital noise reduction.

And then there is AVCHDcoder for simple BD menu-making of HD video and
audio.

Anime is quite different to real footage but the best thing I think I can do is release what I have done and if someone who is more talented than myself can further improve on it or cares too… Then that would be fine by me.

just doing some final tweaks to it… Not much left to be done at all.

I don’t really want to digitally scrub the film clean either only color correct it and sort the contrast out which is 99.99% done practically. I am pleased with it.

Thanks for Linking to AVCHDCoder looks quite good…

Made another astonishing discovery… Williams Vs Han.

In the sequence inside the office although there were 2 small snippets of footage missing from it, what I also have discovered is that the shots were re-arranged including the music and sound effects with the subsequent re-arrangement that took place or editing goofs. There was also a shot that was flipped that should not have been flipped.

This has all been re-edited and for me it was a very nice find and it’s like watching the film properly for the first time now it’s in the right order.

I liked it so much, I want to share the clip for history sake and to log the editing goof in public. I will keep the mirror maze under wraps though until releasing the edit.

Audio wise there is 4 edits.
1.Han says today instead of yesterday matches his lips too.
2.Missing Foley when Han swipes one of his own guards
3.Han shout from the Hong Kong Trailer Mono Sound mix when he knocks williams through the wall which can’t be found on the Mandarin or Cantonese mixes.
4.Added missing Base frequencies to Disco Room

clip below and please tell me what you think if you have any thoughts on it.

Nice! It’s much better than the one in the comparison clip and I like how you incorporated some of the missing footage in there.

Thanks! I just think it is nice now that their positioning now makes sense. The footage flows better.

Happy chinease new year 😃

Ronster, this is incredible work, I only stumbled across it trying to find out who did Parsons infamous voiceover 😃

I remembered some scenes in Game of Death II were clearly taken from Enter the Dragon, but had no idea there were so many subtle differences and cuts out there, other than the UK’s version missing the nunchuck fight. The Williams fight scene with Han that you’ve put together is outstanding. I hope you eventually re-release this in parts again like you did long ago, but wanted to let you know that I have the original 70’s OST on vinyl if you needed any of it 😃
