I just won the laserdisc for the anime movie Lensman off ebay. It’s not on dvd in any region and I’m wanting to convert this lost (and one of my favorite’s) title to dvd here soon. A friend of mine has an LD player and a nice standalone dvd recorder and I was thinking of doing 1 side per dvdr, a total of 4 dvdrs with both audio tracks to start out with to get the best quality. Then take the dvdrs, since the audio into 2 different streams, and make a dvd out of it. I just have my laptop so a capture card is kinda outta the question, and we figured that doing it this way would hold quality better. Then I’d make a menu and all that jazz later. I’ve never done this before, but I"m hoping it’s not too hard.
What I am in need of is someone to translate the yapanese audio track and someone else to time the subs. I might just end up hitting up a fansub group to do so, but I figured I’d check the OTT forums first. Anyone interested in either getting this when I ever get it done, or helping me out? Any help would be greatly apprecaited (from how-to’s to just bout anything).
Yapanese audio is on the digital channel, English on the analog, and it’s 4:3 video. I figured that a DL dvd would do both audio tracks and a sub stream (2 if the dub is drastically different, but I’ll come ot that bridge later).
What does everyone think?
