The Terminator - Color Regrade — Page 7

Hi guys, I’m currently syncing all available mono mixes for another project.
I tried to sync the mono mixes rips from the 1995 THX LD that previously had been released all over the web, and sadly, I must report those mixes were cut down to match the 5.1 track, meaning some parts of the sound are missing.
I’m currently awaiting for a new rip of this THX LD, that I will resync without any cuts being made to the original audio. The only improvement will be filling in the blanks at the end of the reels changes.
you can follow the progress on fanres.

That’s great news! I’d love a proper PCM mono to pair with Dek’s awesome regrade.

Great news indeed! Interesting that it was cut down. And I thought I didn’t have to worry about the audio. 😛

There are two ways to match audio, either you do it by ear and by matching the waves forms, which means sometimes the people doing it make tiny cuts so that the audio stays in sync.

Alas it’s wrong because a) you alter the original audio b) from one master to another, the audio never match exactly because it wasn’t captured the same way, but when you view it with the image, you won’t notice the tiny ms differences.

Or you do it like I do, which is syncing the audio by matching the image to the available current master.
In that case, you don’t have to worry about the waveforms being exactly in sync on every version you sync. It worked for the source master, then it will work for the new one as the frames of the film are the same.

The only modifications are adding missing audio at the end of reels or beginning, when the source master misses some footage.

I advocate as a rule to always sync by frame matching. It works 99,99% of the time.

Wow…screenshots for this look really, really great. Love your dedication to getting it right too Dek!
Would love to see this one in motion.

Finally got a chance to watch this last night…an absolute pleasure. I realize this is something of a guessing game due to the lack of materials available to base a definitive look from but this really does appear to give a very good approximation of how this might have looked on big screen way back when. Simply put…The colors and contrast were great.

I actually watched this in a double bill with the new The Hitcher blu-ray (which was itself was scanned from a German theatrical print) and although obviously different beasts they both looked very authentic to the era which is a testament to all Dek’s work on this project and this will be my go to version of this classic for the foreseeable.

Thanks again Dek!!
