I believe a VHS restoration of Spaceballs would be more appropriate, in this instance.

Team Negative1

Thank you so much for your brilliant work.

That doesn’t make sense. The project is available in two cases.

What do you mean you can’t respond? Do you mean that you don’t want to respond? Do you mean that the team account is banned? You have a functioning account right here (or are you saying it will be banned for being a duplicate account?), Williarob has a functioning account, and negative1 has a functioning account.

I really want to like the team, and Williarob is a good guy. I just don’t understand why everything negative1 (the individual who did not leave the group and is the group leader) does has to be for the sake of ‘pushing buttons’ and being confrontational.

We can still discuss the project regardless of it being active or not. And regardless of it’s authors being active on the forum or not.

I’m sure we got 100s of this kind of project here…

  1. There is no “we” anymore.

  2. Individual members are still perfectly capable of responding to questions.

  3. Why should we not be allowed to discuss the project anymore just because TN1 disbanded?

Not for much longer…

Very neat. Good listening for an early Sunday morning.

It may be totally unrelated, but at least you posted it multiple times.

What would be the protocol for something like that.
If anyone of us spots a sale of complete reels to a film of interest, whom, here, should we contact?

Ooh, Star Trek: The Motionless Picture. Wake me up when a copy of The Wrath of Khan or the one with the whales shows up. Those are the only good ST moves.

Beats me, but I know what the protocol is not, and what you are doing is that.

‘Protocol’ isn’t always followed and people do post 35mm stuff of interest in the various SW 35mm threads for visibility, which isn’t a big deal.

More appropriate would be to use the ‘other’ film restoration subforum (non-SW). But visibility is a bit lower. But that’s less of a problem when there’s more than 13 hours left of an auction. Regardless, crossposting is unwanted. Especially bumping various threads in the same subforum. Anyone who sees one will see them all. And in this case, we’re seeing a print in poor shape that isn’t really usable.

Protocol? Why it’s my primary function.

Sorry. Couldn’t resist.

Oh, really. I never noticed, being that Star Trek IV (the whale one) is the second-to-worst classic era ST film.

How can you tell the condition of it from those pics? Just curious.

I can’t, and maybe someone with more experience will correct me.

But I was going off the ebay description, which states that it has vinegar syndrome and warping bad enough that the owner calls it shrinkage in the auction.

(in b4 “I WAS IN THE POOL I WAS IN THE POOL”).

But it might still have been worth posting if someone else already had a copy and needed specific frames or audio or whatever. I dunno. 😃

I dont know if this has ever been asked, and maybe its not even possible to do. Is there a way to alter the file so that it is in the scope format so that us folks with projectors/anamorphic lenses capable of stretching that image to the 2.35:1 AR can get our moneys worth on all available pixals?

I may have overlooked it, but what type of print was the source for this project? Im not to keen on film source types. I know there is 35mm flat, 35mm scope etc etc.

You can crop it to another aspect ratio in VLC I believe.

Ive never heard of VLC before. What are the benefits of using that media player? Again, bare with me, Im still learning when it comes to manipulating digital video media. I dont know quite how to ask this question, but what exactly happens if I crop or squeeze the TN1 movie into a scope format? Will I indeed get the desired result or be wasting my time?

VLC has very high compatibility compared to many media players. It does allow you to crop however many pixels you want off of any edge (not sure if that answers your original request or not).

Thanks dude. Not sure if I was understood though. Do you understand what I was asking? When you watch a typical blu-ray on either your tv or projector, youre really not getting the most out of your display. all that black on top and bottom is wasted pixals and wasted light, or lack of. If you watch the movie thats in the 2.35:1 AR that has roughly 1920x820 pixals, youre not getting the true benefit of your viewing medium. If you have a scope source, then using your projector with an anamorphic lense project it, you will have more light and more pixals and a better movie viewing experience. Since the whole point of TN1’s endeavor was to give us the closest thing to experiencing SW as it wouldve looked back in the day, I was hoping to go one step further and add to it.
Thats why I asked what was the original source print. Was it scope, flat etc? I just want to know if its possible to change the MKV file to a scope AR, basically sqush it to a square or a 16x9 AR, then let my projector stretch it back out and get more bang for my buck.Im sorry if Im not quite articulating exactly what Im trying to say.
