I’ve tried Resilio, but my ISP throttles uploads with it, so it takes about a week to upload 10GB unfortunately.

I would use rars less than 4gb (or is it 6) on mega due to their newer caps. There are ways around that, but separate files makes things simpler.

I’ve used myairbridge.com before. It always used to have a 25GB limit and I think that’s still the case but recently I think its download windows became annoyingly short. Worth a try though, as a straight direct uploader/downloader.

I like Goggle Drive for sharing large files. Just make an account with fake credentials and you’re set.

Looks like it will be Resilio Sync, just trialling it with a small group at the moment to see how well it works.

Here are a few seconds though, would like feedback on if any problems have been introduced during the cleanup.

Looks great!

Frame 201 appears to show some warpage along the letterbox bar at the bottom of the screen.
Frame 292 is out of sequence - appears to be from previous shot?
Frame 562 appears to show some warpage along the letterbox bar at the bottom of the screen.

Thanks.
Yeah, that sudden frame reversion is a glitch.
Also ignore the bottom and top edges as the framing is open way past the crop area, and the edges will be rough.
You are right though, those two frames are the glue frames, I’ll have to handle those manually.

Having just finished watching Grindhouse this looks superb quality-wise. I’m sure color correcting is still in progress.

And in the time of greatest despair, there shall come a savior, and he shall be known as the Son of the Suns.

No colour correction done yet other than adjusting levels to allow restoration.

it’s a lot cleaner than I expected! thanks for your hard work

frame 66 has a black blurp at the top of the frame, right in the middle
frame 270 has some green smudginess in front of R2

pretty minor issues, but thought i’d contribute 😉

That clip looks great! Less grain than I expected (was there noise reduction applied?)

Looks absolutely fantastic. The Grindhouse LUT may not be far off from what this scan needs for CC. I am very pleased with these results!

It doesn’t hurt to offer help, but it always hurts to disregard those that do.

Hi,
Not sure if I can be much more use than the folk already here, but if I can I have a pair of mkI eyeballs to offer for frame checking and what-not.

And, thanks for all the work you (and everyone else) has been putting into this.
