The couple had already said goodbye for the night a few scenes earlier. There was zero context for them being at the play.

When can we expect Disney to buy Paramount so the next Indiana Jones Film has the Paramount logo?? 😉 KIDDING, kidding!
I’d settle for Paramount finally cooperating with Movies Anywhere…
Expect that to be a term of Disney’s negotiation.
Not sure why so many folks aren’t understanding Luke’s death. He didn’t wear out from mental exhaustion, he willed himself to the force, just like Obi-Wan, and he said he was going to do it to Kylo beforehand, just like Obi-Wan did to Vader. And clearly he intends to haunt Kylo.
God, I love my country:
So, with Disney now in charge will we finally get the OUT on Blu?
Would you like the brick I just crapped???
Doctor M ... I did color correct the scenes somewhat. I can still tell a couple of them but they're not as pronounced as the source material. I didn't mess with the Ron/Romilda scene, but simply inserted the map scene between Slughorn closing the door in Harry's face and that one.
As for when these will escape into the wild, we'll see. Superman I'm hesitant on simply because I may re-do it and add in the return to Krypton scene. I haven't fully decided yet.
I think I'll work on HP7 next. Considering making it one epic film like an old David Lean film just for giggles.
Updates to the initial post regarding:
- Superman Returns
- The Wizard of Oz
- Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
IN BLU RAY!!!!!! And so it begins, folks. I've missed you all.
NPR's Morning Edition talked about this and referenced this site. W00T!
Edit: They published my comment. Double-W00T
Vegas 11 does a good job editing .ts files. I've had success with a tool for the Mac called Foxit Video Converter that will convert the .m2ts stream to .ts. I think DVDFab will do this on the PC itself but I've been running off an expired (read: free) version that has the conversion features disabled.
The rub so far has been that FoxIt downsamples (nicely, but downsamples nonetheless) the DTS audio to AC3.
The nice part is that you can import the .ts file and it map the video stream and the audio stream locked together with the audio channels assigned appropriately.
I'm using Vegas 11 Platinum, not Pro, so my output audio ends up being 5.1 PCM. Not generally problematic, but a space hog on BD-25s.
So the debits so far are:
1) Downsampled Audio
2) Recompressed video.
It all looks and sounds really good, but isn't the perfect-as-original stuff I've done with Womble and standard-def. I'm going to play with some other formats, such as converting to AVI instead of .TS and extracting the .DTS streams to WAV. Then, it's just a matter of getting the seventh and eighth channels to map an encode correctly back into the BR. Not sure if Vegas 11 handles that yet. Documentation on Vegas 11 is really bad for such a nice commercial product, so I'm learning as I go.
Still wish I could find a way to do this for a living. Both editing and teaching how to edit.
As I re-learn and re-tool my process for HD, I will likely post a new guide for all of you. Vegas 11 has become a good friend of mine lately.
Happy new year folks. Still busy in the day job, but did some HD editing for my own sanity over the holidays. I have Wiz of Oz and HP6 completed in 1080p. I finished Superman Returns in 1080p a couple of years ago but never released it. I'm contemplating adding in the Return to Krypton scene now that it resurfaced before it ever gets seen. I haven't invested in the 1080p Superman Boxed Set yet.
I miss the time I used to have to do this and hang out with all of you guys. I'm hopeful that may change one day soon. Time will tell.
Until then, keep editing, keep watching, and keep hoping for better stuff!
p.s. I used the U.S. version of Austin Powers on all 3 films.
Are the deleted scenes (both prequel and OT) presented in 1080p or something else? I'm planning to re-do my edits in HD if the source material is up-to-snuff.
Love this ... https://wwws.whitehouse.gov/petitions/%21/petition/prevent-george-lucas-altering-his-movies/GbL46tgS
I live but I am busy. Thought you all deserved that much of a check in. Keep hope.
FWIW, I ran into snags converting framerates so I could edit video files properly in Vegas that properly matched up with the audio. I haven't solved these. I'm sure the solution is simple but time is time. ;-)
I'm feeling Super and magical. Magical in more ways than one. Magical like a boy wizard, and magical like I've been whisked away to another land by a tornado. Highly. Definite.
1187hunterwasser you have the coolest name I've seen on these forums in many a year. You're welcome in this thread to be sure.
I've been feeling SUPER since Thanksgiving. Highly. Definite. I've been feeling so SUPER for so dang long that I'm ready to stop feeling so SUPER so I can start feeling a little magical.
Seriously, George, it's time to get this party started!
Updated the original post, as over the summer and fall I created "Version 2" updates to Superman II, Superman Redeemed, and X-Men 3.
Talk to Manono at VideoHelp. He was extremely helpful in doing all kinds of crazy IVTC things. I believe I even once had a source that was from PAL that was then converted to NTSC and he was able to figure out the algorithm so AVISynth could deinterlace the whole thing.
Congrats FP! Hopefully you're starting to get a little more sleep by now.
