You might remember not too long ago Harmy wondered if he’d found a grail when he noticed less smearing on his PAL THX compared to GOUT.
Harmy’s thread is here.
I suggest opening that thread in a new browser window so you’ll be able to compare many of the same frames.
Maybe I follow Harmy down the same dark path . . . or maybe I’m onto something heretofore unknown. I hope you can help figure it out.
So anyway … I was at Disneyland the other day, and a serious preservationist turned me onto this.
The disc was mastered on 1993-08-21. DC project was already in pre-production by then Shirley [RIP]
Look, there’s our old friends! Do you recognize them ?
IVTC’ed – that’s why the display is wonky
d00d’s about to get Vasoline all over his boots. Watch your step!
(In GOUT the Vasoline has already dissolved his boots 😉
Look Ma, no shrinkage
We don’t need no shrinkin’ ratio!
The next one was made a few days ago, so might have had different settings (bright/contrast/color/hue) than everything above.
There is three seconds video (17MiB) of this shot in motion
So what do you think? Is it worth a damn?
Not so much talking about the quality of samples shown, but rather the source.
Could this be the most important laserdisc you’ve never heard of?
Can it stand beside JSC as a smear-free alternative to GOUT?
Is this a disc aleksbmw will want to capture on his Hercules?
Will breaking this story earn honorable mention on TV’s listing Who’s Who Among Darths ?
However, in practice you must take into account the “fuckwit factor”. Just talk to Darth Mallwalker…
