Well, I just grabbed the laserdisc, and it looks EXACTLY like the tests we’ve all been doing. So I’m starting up the project again now that I have a good reference. More updates coming soon.

Also, thanks for the tip paja, but I have no way to scan film. 😃

This is a cool idea! I’ve personally been toying with the idea of fixing the opening Disney logo on the Toy Story Blu-ray release. I hate that Disney added their “new” logo. The original 3D Renderman Disney castle (with its music) is SO iconic and special to me! The only problem is, I haven’t been able to find a single HD 16:9 (or 1.85:1) version of that opening logo ANYWHERE! Out of all the Pixar films, the only Blu-ray releases that have the original 3D castle are The Incredibles, Cars, and Ratatouille. But all three of those films are 2.39:1, so the framing doesn’t match up with how it should look on Toy Story. Every other pre-2006 Pixar film has had the logo replaced, unfortunately. 😦 Any leads on where to obtain a 16:9 HD version of the opening logo? I’m worried I may up needing to composite the 2.39:1 logo with the top and bottom of the SD logo from the Toy Story DVD… but I really would rather not use any SD sources! It just won’t look as clean.

The project I’m working on will also include the original renderman castle. The best source I have is the original DVD, which will be upscaled as best as I can. I have some tricks up my sleeve. 😉

Same here, this looks incredible. Imo the best it’s looked since the original DVD release in 2000 haha. Very Excited.

Decided to adjust the colors to match the Laserdisc a bit more. I’ll post a sample video later tonight.

I’ve also tried fixing the opening Disney logo on the Toy Story Blu-ray release. I hate the new Disney logo so much. Luckily I have the original 3D Renderman Disney castle in HD 16:9. Its not from Toy Story but Its the full length logo that can easily be edited to fit back into the film. I have a archive of it in 1080p and a bitrate of around 15,000. Would love to contribute with helping this project so please get in contact! 😃
