Has there been any fan scans of 70mm films yet? I’m curious how it would look, though I’m sure it would be at least 3x more expensive then a 35mm scan.

The only one I can think of is about 5 seconds of The Empire Strikes Back that was done in 2016: https://www.thestarwarstrilogy.com/2016/02/04/70mm-empire-strikes-back-in-4k/

Van Halen's "Once" video
Time

Hello everybody!
In April of 1999, Van Halen posted on their official website a music video for the song “Once” from the 1998 album Van Halen III. Time has not been kind to this video, as the only copy one can find nowadays is not only poor quality but also the shortened version. Searching the Wayback Machine yields nothing as well.

I know it’s a shot in the dark, but if anyone can find the video in its highest quality, I’d finally complete my Van Halen music video collection. Thanks in advance and good luck.

You could recreate the game footage in HD

A lot of the gameplay in the early episodes was pretty poorly recorded (using composite and a DVD recorder). If you wanted you could probably re-create it in emulation and get much better quality.

That seems a bit overkill. The game footage is turning out surprisingly clean, so I think it’ll be fine.

I’ll be doing more scans soon. We have Covid delays again but I have access to good scanners and to prints.

I’m thinking about setting up a subscription payment system to get things rolling. The goal will be to do every Disney classic - and where possible to scan multiple prints. I might re-scan Pinoke next year as well.

I am 100% in. Sign me up. Quality Disney scans are at the TOP of the list of projects I want to support.

Same here

Count me in!

Good point. I mean, the first episode “Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest” is literally just gameplay footage with no footage of the Nerd whatsoever. The gameplay footage may not be suitable for Video Enhance AI, but instead upscaled using a Nearest Neighbour algorithm such as PointResize in Avisynth.

Toy Story 2020 Theatrical "$5 Fan Favorites" Re-Release Recreation (a Work In Progress)
Time

I think saying “print” is wrong in this day and age. I mean, unless you have evidence otherwise, any modern showing of Toy Story or any other film is highly likely a DCP (Digital Cinema Package). And another thing, you say print in a way that implies that every theater chain gets its own unique version. And lastly, please update the first post to remove the mention of 60 fps.
