There's a torrent 11.5 GB in size that has a slightly different video transfer (although it looks to be about the same quality as the schorman version), it's also the DVD cut. It also claims to be the same German broadcast as the 34GB torrent. So I was wrong it is different to the cap that schorman used.
Here's a screenshot.
is occasional double posting frowned upon here? anyway..
Any chance you could help me get my hands on Schorman's version? It's the biggest reason I joined the site. I've been scouring the internet for it (see my last post) but I can't find it. Any help here would be hot.
You can find it on MySpleen.
Is it just me or is the left channel on the stereo mix on the 35 mm release louder than the right?
I can't access the the page for some reason.
you could always do one or two select episodes and share to get opinions on it?
OK, I will do a test on Sailor Moon by doing a super resolution upscale on the first episode, using the Italian DVD release as the source and compare it to the Blu-ray. I'll be back in a week or so with the results.
You know, I had an thought recently…
You see, with Viz Media’s treatment of Sailor Moon on Blu-ray and the minuscule chances of seeing animated shows like G1 Transformers or Batman: The Animated Series on Blu-ray, I thought about maybe using a super resolution algorithm to upscale animation to HD. But I wonder in all honesty, should we do it?
So what was the difference between the 16mm 1080p WMV release and the DVD release? Naturally, the DVD would be a downconvert, but was it different visually?
Probably not from what I've understand, but what do I know?
Hey everybody, Avatar_Emil here.
I would be lying if I ever said that Disney’s “Beauty And The Beast” wasn’t one of my favorite movies of all time. But lately, something’s being bugging me. You see, for some unknown reason (at least to me), the opening narration on the Swedish dub has been redone for the first DVD release in Nordic countries like Sweden, Denmark and Norway and it’s still the redone narration on the (Nordic) Blu-ray, when I know it’s the original narration on the VHS release. How do I know, you might ask? Simple: https://mega.co.nz/#!SENAnSpB!68LPNMnuvmoSmProP4zLJ6pV3F-tkOtZiVPiIrEmXHs
The link I provided is the first track of the Swedish soundtrack album. On the track, you will hear the original narration as heard on the VHS release, which I guess is accurate to how it sounded during the first theatrical run (I personally don’t know because I was born on March 1993). By contrast, here’s the opening narration as heard on the DVD/Blu-ray release: https://mega.co.nz/#!6RFSyQJK!7f7iA521XQgTzkMBJnH2xCmY11iI4ky6MVegjmPjLu0
See what I mean? Now obviously I wanted to add back the original narration in an attempt to preserve the theatrical sound, but that’s where I need your help. Why? Well. I recently heard of a program called ADX Trax which is probably the best piece of software to isolate vocal parts, even from mono mixes. Sadly, the program is only available to MAC-users, but if somebody had that program, he or she can do the preservation for me.
Hey, dark_jedi. Are you aware of this: http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/The-White-Buffalo-Blu-ray/121152/
I've found a better way to convert PAL to NTSC via deinterlacing, doubling the frame rate, and then convert to NTSC. There are little artifacts and it does the job great. That way, I can do a DVD-9 version instead of BD-25.
That sounds terrific! BTW, do you think the current rights-holders will ever release the classic series on Blu-ray?
Unfortunately, I don't have the software or the know-how to pull that off.
Sorry to hear. But do you know anybody personally who might help you with video-editing?
Have you got ANY video-editing skills? If so, then perhaps you can (probably) recreate the trailer using the blu-ray as the video source.
Well, I found the two laserdisc releases you metioned and well... the first one I found has surround:
and the other is stereo:
For the LD with stereo, I found this listing on eBay:
I think that the best version must be the HDTV versions you can get on myspleen or rutracker.
Your fan-edit sounds AWESOME!!!! I'm a huge fan of "Avatar: The Last Airbender", so I look forward to seeing the result.
MGM's record with original mixes hasn't been that great. It certainly won't be lossless.
The picture may fare better, but it's more likely that it comes from the same dated master used for the DVD.
Well, if that's the case, then perhaps someone can do a lossless capture of the audio from this laserdisc: http://www.lddb.com/laserdisc/07067/ML100872/Fistful-of-Dynamite-A-(1971)
According to blu-ray.com, there will be a new release of "Duck You Sucker" in the US October 7th of this year. More info here: http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Duck-You-Sucker-Blu-ray/83758/

On you-know-where, I found a workprint version of "The Lion King" that was sourced from VHS. PM me for details.
I don't know about ac3, but there is DTS available on myspleen. I'll pm the the link.
Here's a screenshot:
Where are the MKV's available? Anyone willing to upload it the 'spleen?
Avatar_Emil said: IT DOES? How do you know that? I was under the impression that the 75th anniversary Blu-ray DIDN'T have mono. Also, according to this, there was a DVD release which did have mono, if not two.
This article on bluray.com on the release does confirm a mono mix.
Thanks everybody for confirming this. Here is the updated info:
VHS: Unknown if VHS had original mono. High possibility that they have.
LD: Some LD's are mono (like the 50th Anniversary Edition), others were fake stereo (like a Japanese release with reference number G98F5545).
DVD: Dolby Digital 5.1 for the simple release, slightly altered mono included in the Collector's Edition and 70th Anniversary Edition.
BD: Both Dolby TrueHD 5.1 and mono sound is available on both the 70th Anniversary Blu-ray and the 75th Anniversary 2D and 3D Blu-ray.
And here's something that I can't wrap my head around. About 2 years ago, the 1994 Don Bluth movie Thumbelina got released on Blu-ray. As far as I know, it was a European only release, but despite having 8 different dubs available, one is very absent, namely the Swedish dub. I know that this movie got a Swedish dub, because I owned a VHS that was dubbed in Swedish, but the only thing we Swedish speakers got on Blu-ray and even DVD was Swedish subtitles. I think that when 20th Century Fox got the distribution rights for this movie from Warner Bros., they for some reason removed the Swedish dub. What do you think of this?
