The Disney + extra looks pretty good when played through Roku on a 4K TV. So maybe when a source becomes available we can see what’s what. I did try my hand at editing in the iTunes extra into the movie but that was the old non-frame rate corrected so it’s a little annoying to watch. If there’s a better version, would you PM me?

I’ve just ordered a new video capture device which apparently bypasses HDCP, so I’m hoping to capture the iTunes extras through that

That’d be great. Hope it works and you make the extra song available.

The iTunes one has been captured before, read the last few pages of this thread.

Would this work for the Disney + at 4K though? I assume the same frame rate process would have to be applied to that one too?

Yes, but the quality, it must be presumed, should be a quite bit better than on the iTunes one.

I made a really shitty version of this myself a couple of years back, with a version of the cut scene that had about 4 pixels. It looks like Minecraft. Does anyone have a link to one of these better versions? Thanks!

Video capture is difficult with Disney+ without a capture device because Disney has software blocks built in to prevent native capture. If anyone can do it, more power to ya.

Okay, I lied. With XBox GameDVR you can easily capture it.

Does anyone have the ability to capture it? I wonder if a 4K version of the film will be available at some point as well, so we can have the full, uncut film in 4K.

Wish Disney would just issue a UHD disc with the scene.

…does anyone have a full captured 1080p or 4K version of the scene without any missing frames and is willing to share with me?

Okay so update on the project that I swear I posted about somewhere on here (perhaps on the other thread, I remember there being two different threads for this):

I plan to redo the project using my own 1080p Disney+ capture of the scene… Have not compared it visually to the iTunes one I’ve got but I do remember checking and the iTunes one was missing some frames if I recall, so this one SHOULD be better. Not sure when I’ll do this but it most likely will be sometime soon.
I might also experiment with color matching the film to the LaserDisc, using my own transfer of the disc and the DrDre Color Matching Tool, but we’ll see if that gets anywhere. If I do, I’ll upload both a version with the LD color grading and a version with the BD color grading.

Sorry for the delay by the way!

I’m curious if anyone knows of a high quality source for the other extended sequence in the movie: the Marley’s song. Details are mentioned here: https://www.movie-censorship.com/report.php?ID=620312 and the scene can be watched here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WnZVY-ZdTHs

I remember watching the film on Blu-Ray and noticing something was off about the Statler and Waldorf scene compared to the home VHS recording I watched as a kid, but I couldn’t put my finger on it. Having this extra bit would make the film fully restored to its broadcast glory.

There may exist a 4K version of the movie…

So if anyone were to also get a 4K rip of the song, it would be possible to have a 4K movie with the scene.

The movie’s in 4K on Disney+. I thought someone said the deleted song was 4K too but the movie’s definitely 4K.

There’s a TrollUHD 4k HDR rip up on public trackers now.

If true, it doesn’t look QUITE as good as the film. Probably the best the scene looked to a home audience (previously on 1.33 DVD), but it looks like, to me at least (who don’t get some of the arguments about color timings so judge for yourself) from a high-quality workprint rather than from the negative.

Again, it does look pretty good, but the scenes still in the film book-ending the song look better than what’s in between.

It’s far from perfect, but I created a version of the movie where I spliced the song into its proper place. The main movie is 1080p bluray and the song is one that someone posted to YouTube. The coloring of the song is different than that of the rest of the film and it is pitched higher as well. But if anyone is interested, I can give you a Mega link.

So…any movement on someone capturing there iTunes 4k or Disney Plus version of the song?

I’d really like this sooner than later. I see many of you mention that they might get round to it. How long can it take guys?

I’d do it but myself don’t have the means/equipment. Be very grateful if someone could finally rip this properly!

It boggles my mind that people have ripped full series from Disney Plus but this sought after scene is still sitting there waiting to be done justice!

Come on guys Michael Cain would be proud!

I’ve ripped the Disney+ version but can only do it in 1080p, which doesn’t look much (if any) different from the iTunes version. I also captured it using PlayOn’s cloud service which only gives it in 720p - the colours looked a little better but of course the resolution isn’t as good.

There’s been a 1080p fan-edit out there since last Christmas. The video is sourced from Amazon, the 5.1 audio and commentary track come from the old DVD release and the stereo audio from the LaserDisc is also included.

If I’m not back in five minutes, just wait longer!

I meant just the extra song. Just wondered if it would be any better than what we have so far.

Looking at my iTunes extras today, it seems the version that is there now is higher quality than what was previously captured in this thread. If someone is able to capture it at the proper frame rate (or even if you can capture at a higher frame rate and send it to me so that I can delete the duplicate frames), I can put out a proper 1080p version very soon using the blu-ray and the captured video. When it’s ready, I’ll share it to anyone who wants it with 1080p video, 5.1 audio, chapters, subtitles, and tags.

Looking forward to getting a good capture from whomever can help!

DJPitaB, your (solid) way of dealing with any dupe frames in video… Real quick so as not to de-rail this thread (I don’t have a way to do your wanted capture 😦) what is your method for that if you don’t mind sharing the info? Thanks.

LightWave = fun times with gfx for me 😃
