Terminator 2 JP SqueezeLD Laserdisc Rip - Different (possibly original?) Color Timing (Released) — Page 2

So I checked out the mono track on another rip (not of this one, of the SE).

Clearly, the mono is remixed and is not a fold-down.

I’m guessing some low level theaters got the mono mix initially, and Cameron being then the crazy director he was, did custom mixes for different theaters (ie some got the stereo mix DS, some the mono mix, some the 70mm 5.1 mix)

So a rip of the mono mix would be nice, it levels the film with the original, and really crunches 😃

I recently saw this film on 35mm, an original print, definitly looked like the THX DVD and not this LD.

Pardon my asking, could I request a copy of this version of T2?

Yep, that DVD (and subsequent releases) is how Cameron wanted the final product to look. This LD is cool to see though, the scene where the t-1000 kills the cop in front of the coffee machine looks SO much better on the un-timed LD. The actual release has an odd green/teal tint to it where the LD is darker blue with the red light from the machine shining on him.

Even if this isn’t how Cameron wanted the movie to look, I’ve gotta say this looks better.

I think this was an asnwer print mistakenly sent overseas.

There’s no problem with the file, get it again or maybe check your computer setup and clean cache and stuff.

Quote:
An answer print is the first version of a given motion picture that is printed to film after color correction on an interpositive. It is also the first version of the movie printed to film with the sound properly synced to the picture.

Answer prints are created during the post-production process after editing, dubbing and other related audio work and special effects sequences have been finished or completed to a degree satisfactory for pre-release viewing. They are used by the filmmaker and studio to ensure that the work going into the film during the post-production process is cohesive with the final goals for the project. In effect, it is a post-edit editing where the filmmaker can observe and direct the course of the film’s final look and feel as it pertains to color correction, sound and special effects elements and overall pacing. Pre-release screenings for test audiences are often run from late answer print copies of the film, because often the filmmaker is using the screening as a way to help direct final choices regarding the finished project.

When the last answer print is approved and finalized, it is used to make an internegative from which the release prints are struck.

I’d love a link too. I have the original squeeze LD’s (both of them) and i think about 15 other versions of T2 on all different formats, including D-VHS, DVD, BD, HD-DVD, LD and so on. But it would be nice to put this one in the media player too, thanks a lot in advance.

I’m sorry this took so long, but I finally ripped the Mono track!

It sounds awesome. If you would like it, shoot me a PM. After re-ripping the LD, I realized what I thought originally was an error in my quick initial rip of the disc was actually true. That as cool as it is to see the un-timed colors, the LD really looks like garbage. Not because it’s 480p anamorphic (doesn’t help of course), but the contrast is way off. Slightly dark scenes are too low contrast and super saturated, to the point where basic detail is lost. (See the cop that Arnold throws out of the car after they break out of the hospital. You literally can’t see his face through the windshield on the LD) But if I increase the contrast, lighter scenes are WAY blown out and almost look over exposed, I.e. you can’t read the opening titles at all if the contrast is raised.

Nevertheless I ripped it and included the Mono track.

I’ll be sharing a folder with these files (about 6gb total):

-Raw MP4 rip of the squeeze LD

-WAV of the Mono track that syncs to the R1 “Skynet Edition” Blu Ray

-MKV Remux of the Blu Ray (3ish gb) with the Mono track synced and the 5.1 folded down to Stereo.

Pardon me, I have been asleep for a while. What is the “Squeeze edition” and how will I know it when I see it?

The Squeeze Edition is a Japanese laserdisc release for some movies.
It is literally an anamorphic LaserDisc release with the whole 1.33:1 formatted video being used, but stretched, as with Anarmophic Widescreen DVDs. So they need to be Squeezed to fit on the old format.

Only Japan had such releases.
There where two different squeeze LDs for Terminator 2,the first one had a not processed color timing, the second one has the known color timing.

I think on lddb.com you may find cover artwork images of both releases, because they did not share the same cover design.
