My Avisynth-fu has never been anything except rusty, but I think that means if you delete frames 68664 and 68665 from 4k83, you’ll get NTSC GOUT.

That’s right. 😃

Although I don’t see how there can be 2 extra frames after frame 68663.

It’s the two missing frames of the rebel fleet immediately after Luke’s conversation with Ben. Perhaps you are more used to the PAL GOUT.

What are you trying to re-sync, Arnied?

I want to be able to sync any of schorman’s GOUT synced laserdisc tracks to 4k83. So as I understood it somewhere 2 frames need to be inserted. So I want to duplicate the frame before the 2 extra frames 2 times to get an audio file of the correct length, like in the script above.

However, frame 68663 is already past the wipe, so I don’t think it’s the correct position.

Arnie.d,

I have them all done already. I will be posting them to tswt forums later today or tomorrow.

Edit: Now available!

How do I find them there?

Return of the Jedi subforum > “audio tracks” thread (of which hairy_hen is the OP). Post #12, specifically.

The result wouldn’t sound very smooth, but you could do that. If you take that approach, duplicate the frame before once and the frame after once: it will be less noticeable.

However, frame 68663 is already past the wipe, so I don’t think it’s the correct position.

It is though – I’ve checked. The missing frames occur before the cut to the briefing room. After the wipe, watch the first fighter that clears the nose of the Mon Calamari vessel.

If you want to continue this discussion, perhaps we should be move it to the GOUT-sync thread. 😃

EDIT: By the way, the frame-count of the NTSC GOUT post-IVTC is 190799.

Did you try it? I don’t hear it at all. I don’t even think I hear it when I duplicate the frame 10 times.

But it’s about syncing to 4k83 so I guess we don’t have to move the discussion. 😃

I was not sure about the frame count so I just picked a save number. The length of the audio file won’t increase because of a blank clip with to many frames.

Maybe I missed it but what are the framenumbers of the 2 extra frames? And how many frames are there in total?

IIRC the frames in this release are basically a superset of the NTSC GOUT plus the PAL GOUT, so it has one more frame than the PAL GOUT and two more frames than the NTSC GOUT.

Chewtobacca posted this in the GOUT sync thread for converting PAL GOUT to NTSC GOUT.

Chewtobacca said:

RotJ

PAL GOUT

Mpeg2Source()
AssumeFPS(24000,1001)
DuplicateFrame(141781)
DeleteFrame(68664,68665)

The Star Wars title card appears on frame 689.

My Avisynth-fu has never been anything except rusty, but I think that means if you delete frames 68664 and 68665 from 4k83, you’ll get NTSC GOUT. Really worth a second opinion though 😉

EDIT: OK, thanks.

So to sync your favorite GOUT synced audio to 4k83 all you have to do is:

  1. insert as a wavesource of your favorite audio track of ROTJ (that is GOUT synced) in the script below and copy it to an .avs file.
  2. open the avs file in virtualdub.
  3. click file > save wav

Although I don’t see how there can be 2 extra frames after frame 68663.

video = BlankClip(length=200000)
audio = wavsource(“ROTJ - 1985 Stereo Home Video Mix.wav”)
AudioDub(video, audio)

DuplicateFrame(68663)
DuplicateFrame(68663)

Wow! Just wow.
The detail is amazing. I love the fine grain structure. Thank you so much for all your hard work.

I have some questions about the colors. How accurate are they? I got used to harmy’s grindhouse release of ROTJ and prefer his colors. Is his to saturated? Also, the lightsabers often don’t have the bright white core I came to believe they originally had. Is this how they originally looked?

Anyone know when 4K83 releases?

oohteedee said:

4K83 is not gout synced. It has two extra frames shown in theatres.
The optical print audio is the primary audio track.
hairy_hen has created a new 5.1 audio track for this release.
schorman has updated all the English LaserDisc audio to this release.
All audio provided with 4k83 is synced to 4k83.

Any other gout audio you may have may be slightly out of sync after 0:47:41, if used with 4k83. It should not be noticeable though.

Foreign language tracks don’t lip sync anyway so you’d never notice it being slightly out.

In updating the audio tracks for 4k83 our audio experts actually discovered that the gout synced audio tracks are not actually properly gout synced themselves. All tracks are off sync by 2 to 3 frames for over half of the movie.

Is the gout audio + 2 or 3 frames out of sync or - 2 or 3 frames out of sync. In other words, if you mux gout audio with 4k83, is in 4 to 5 frames out of sync or 0 to 1 frames out of sync?

Empire Strikes back 35mm restoration feedback thread (POUT)

poita said:

Me too. Once I save enough up for the cleaning, I’m pushing to get it scanned as quickly as is possible, I am a bit paranoid about something happening to it now that it has been acquired.
I decided to get the thousand dollars worth of drives now, so that when a scanning window opens it will be ready to go, hopefully I will be able to afford to get it fully cleaned before the scanner becomes available again, but if I had to make the choice between getting it scanned without cleaning, or waiting a year, I’ll choose getting it scanned without, and then try for another scan once cleaning becomes possible.

How much do you need for the cleaning?

Team Negative1 - The Empire Strikes Back 1980 - 35mm Theatrical Version (Release Details and Updates)

alexp120 said:

Assuming that you have downloaded the torrent already, that sound mix that you are asking can be found in this file:

English [eng] (dts-hd ma, 48000Hz, mono).dts

The 8 files that I mentioned above were copied from the audio stream of Harmy’s Empire Strikes Back Despecialized Edition, MKV container, so, the mono mix of the 1980 16mm version is in there.

But those tracks have been synced to TESB Grindhouse, right?
I know Harmy’s Empire Strikes Back Despecialized has the track. I was just wondering if there is a track only download somewhere.

Therefore I’m re-encoding the main movie again to incorporate the Reel 3 cue mark fixes.

I love the quality of the film and especially the grain structure.

However, since you are going to re-encode again, is there something that can be done about the compression artifacts that are present in some parts of the film (mainly cantina sequence and some other dark parts)?

See for example:
http://postimg.org/image/7s64vt2sb/full/
http://postimg.org/image/qbc789hzv/full/

At 40 MB/s I doubt those are compression artifacts. If anything, they are imperfections brought out by the color correction process - these shots were brightened considerably from the original scan, and some of the shadow/color information just isn’t there. I suspect Poita’s scan will be considerably better, but until it arrives, this is as good as it gets I’m afraid.

Thank you, that explains it.

The SSE sync thread

alexp120 said:

With this Avisynth script and VirtualDub, is it possible to plug in a multichannel audio bitstream (AC3, DTS, etc), edit it, and have it output in the same multichannel bitstream with no 2-channel downmix?

I don’t think so.
If you convert the multichannel audio into separate wave files, you can edit them and turn them into a lossless DTS stream again.

Audio sync help

So to sync any GOUT synced wave file to TESB Grindhouse use the script below (and replace audio.wav with the name of the wav file with the one you want to use).
When you open the script in virtualdub click ‘File > Save WAV’ to save you synced audio file. Now all you have to do is mux it.


video = BlankClip(179667)
audio = wavsource(“audio.wav”)
AudioDub(video, audio)

loop(0,150198,150207)
loop(0,121720,121743)

It sounds like you’ve done so much to clean it up and improve it. Why muck it up with a seamless branching BD format release?

Many of us do not mess around with burning BD’s.

In any case, thank you for your efforts and I very much look forward to viewing it.

Because a BD-50 release with seamless branching is FREAKING AWESOME!!!

Anyone who wants an mkv of whatever version can easily extract it himself. It’s not so easy to do it the other way around.
