Glad to be so enlightening!

The HD version is only 3.96 GB but it’s gonna take another two hours to upload (my internet…). It’s at 25 fps.

Oh, I remember the original audio, I had a recording on tape of it! Where can I find this?

Ol’ George has the GOUT, I see.

I didn’t think there were multiple HD sources. Is the AUS Blu-ray actually a different source than the 2009 release?

I have this:

http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Wallace-and-Gromit-The-Complete-Collection-Blu-ray/5984/

The AUS 2016 Blu Ray was resourced from the original film negatives and maintained the original 25fps framerate, whereas the 2009 Blu Ray which is currently available in UK and US had the first 3 shorts slowed down to 24fps.

Another thing worth mentioning about the AUS Blu Ray (and I believe the original 2009 BD) is A Close Shave has been cropped to 16:9 wheres when originally broadcast on BBC1 back in 1995 and on my 2005 PAL DVD, it’s 4:3 open matte.

They’re asking if they use the same transfer. If they do, then the US bluray is the one worth working from, as it’s 1080p progressive and can be sped up to 25fps easily, whereas the AUS BD would have to be deinterlaced. (the BD spec only allows 25/50fps in an interlaced form.)

That is exactly what I did. Changed the frame rate from 24 to 25 with tsmuxer and edited from that.

True, but if the source is truly progressive, then the 1080i50 stream will be identical to what a 1080p25 would’ve been if it were a permitted format. If there is any hint of interlacing (such as scrolling credits) then it would’ve been intended on the original version. There would be no interlacing created by making it 1080i50,unlike NTSC would have.

Dek’s restoration is great! Thanks for all your hard work. I’m not that experienced or knowledgeable with things like interlacing or anything like that but the 24-25fps conversion was great. I just figured the native 1080i50 source would have been better to work with from a purist standpoint but this current preservation will certainly do for now. Thanks again. 😄

Just listening to the official soundtrack of the opening theme to A Grand Day Out, the speed/pitch matches that of the Blu-ray, so wouldn’t that mean the Blu runs at the correct speed?

Was the soundtrack ever offically released?

I did a search for the soundtrack on YouTube myself and found this;

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZDw40l-hsas

In the description, the uploader said he had to speed the audio up (from a source uploaded previously by another user) by 4% to make it accurate. Maybe that link you found was sourced directly from one of the 24fps Blu Ray audio?

I have no idea, i just assumed it was but can’t find anything of it. But the theme sounds more correct with the audio sped up in the linked video.

The strange thing is though on the most recent showing of The Wrong Trousers on the BBC, it matched that of the Blu-ray audio, with the slowed down pitch, so even they are showing the incorrect version!

I have the Blu-ray, so just wondering how i can rip those files and correct the speed/pitch? I do have a Blu-ray drive.

I decided to start watching one of the uploads on Youtube, and I noticed the change in music immediately. It bugs me.

I’d like to get a copy with the original audio.
