Yes, RIP, Miss Fisher.

Thank you, though, for this release. Had a chance to grab from the Spleen and it looks wonderful. I tried a similar 1-pass grading before, but ended up with green end credits! Glad to see how saturated and vibrant this looks in comparison to the original. Would recommend burning this with all the synced audio, including the trimmed '97 SE 5.1 audio someone created!

You are most welcome.

And Williarob, thanks for helping me seed it! What a fun experience! 😃

Thank you for uploading this!

Please could someone advise me the tools necessary to convert the original Grindhouse ISO (Blu-ray compatible) so that it uses Dreamaster’s video file?

I’d like to be able to burn it to disc and play it on my standalone player.

well, that depends on how Dreamaster encoded this, if it is still a blu-ray compliant x264 stream it should be pretty straight forward… (ish)

Aye… it was encoded with x264. The program you’re looking for is called TsMuxer. It’s pretty straight forward.

I just wanted to say thank you for this version. While far from perfect the colours are beautiful, and it made the Grindhouse version infinitely watchable. I am enjoying it immensely.

Thanks - I shall give it a go. It’s impressive how consistently good your results are with the single-colour pass.

Thanks so much for this! I’ll hopefully get chance to check it out properly soon and I’ll be seeding for a while!

OK, a few days have passed and the file still doesn’t download.

Dreamaster- as others have said, your single pass regrade made this a much more enjoyable watch! I’m really amazed at how great certain scenes look (while I didn’t have any reference point while watching, the scene with Leia rallying the troops prior to the Hoth battle/escape looked wonderful)!

Thanks again! Glad we have people like you in this community!

Dreamaster, this version looks wonderful; thanks for uploading it!

May I inquire as to how you applied the regrade and re-encoded?

You want to know the secret sauce eh? 😃

Amazingly, it was a free to use software called Avidemux. It’s pretty good for quick, one pass adjustments with a few caveats. It seems to render the video with more red versus the green… so I typically have to “get the preview perfect” and then pull the red channel back until the image is starting to just look a tad green. Blech, lol

For this project I had two color filters, MplayerHue, set to +14 and then I added the MPlayer eq2 adjustment with these settings:

I set the audio as “copy” so it didn’t get altered, but set the Video output to Mpeg4 AVC (x264) and then changed those settings to do a 2 pass render with a target size similar to the original grindhouse.

That’s it!

Try port-forwarding or allowing your download client through your firewall and maybe also through your anti-virus.

I’ve tried just about everything and the damn torrent still won’t download, it doesn’t pick up seeds or anything.

Are you connected to the internet?

Just kidding, but your issue is beyond my sphere of knowledge. Hopefully someone who can help you will do so soon.

Thanks! I’ve been looking into doing a single pass regrade on a film in the near future, so I thought whatever route you took might help me figure it out. 😄

How can I access this torrent if I’m not on Myspleen? Or does anyone have an invite?

Just did a quick look over this. Looks great!

Could somebody upload this torrent elsewhere that isn’t usenet or tehparadox? I really want to get my hands on this gem but the torrent file from myspleen doesn’t download.

This is a great release! Thank you for sharing this with us! I was able to successfully mix in the other audio options and everything seems to remain in sync luckily enough.

I watched this last night Dreamaster, and I wanted to thank you for this amazing improvement to the Grindhouse! This is now my go-to version of ESB until Poita’s restoration becomes available. Well done!

I’m really happy this regrade has been so well received! And it’s intention was exactly that, a bit of fun and education until the amazing work of others comes to light of day with these Poita/Harmy/Adywan versions rock our socks off later.
