Idea & Info: 'Avatar - The Last Airbender' 1080p Remastered Blu Ray Set

I recently just discovered the absolutely amazing remastering project of the Last Airbender which upscaled all the episodes to 1080p. The show is done justice by a few talented and dedicated fans over at reddit. Check the link below for more info on their amazing project:

But the point of this thread is that I really wanted to take this amazing restoration work, and then create a custom blu ray set for the series using this restoration as the base of the project. Since there has been no public blu ray release, I thought this could be nice. I would create custom blu ray cover art, port over all the special features from the DVD’s, make some simple menu’s, make sure all the audio commentaries are there, and then release a nice and tidy .iso for all fans of the series to be able to burn.

This would require me to learn Adobe Encore from scratch (zero knowledge of that program though I do use Premiere Pro for my fanedits), also learn for the first time how to do blu ray cover art, and then buy and rip all the DVD’s for the special features/commentaries…but I think it would be worth it for such an outstanding series. I would have to start this once all of my AP exams are over but then I could go full throttle and try to get it done.

Thoughts? Anyone who would maybe want to help?

I got a 720p upscale version which is lovely however I noticed there was a slight issue with the voices. It was either pitched higher, not sure why. Did anyone else notice this. By the way good luck with your project, can’t wait to see it

Here’s hoping Nick doesn’t screw it up by cropping it to 16x9 or something. I’m actually very afraid that will happen.

That’s what YouTube leaks are for.

Although it just occured to me that perhaps the show was originally created in 16x9 and cropped to 4x3 for broadcast.

I worked on a private Avatar project myself before I got distracted by another project which consumed 6 months of my life. I also got the very nice looking 1080p upscale and tried to make it the ultmate german version (with german and english audio tracks, all commentary tracks and subtitles for english, german and commentaries). Now I’ll wait what the blu-ray provides and maybe get back to it.

What’s interesting is that there’s no difference in speed between the PAL and NTSC release.
