I love The Beatles, so I am willing to donate 10 EUR.
First of all, this is not my restoration. A YouTube user called Carnivol has spent over $20k restoring the Japanese only animated movie about Super Mario in 4k using a 16mm print and uploaded a test version on YouTube. https://youtu.be/8J_b8lUajy4
Will you also upscale the Nintendo World Championship episode? Can’t seem to find it in any other resolution other than 360p.
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.
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.
Try the 4K Blu-Ray!
speaking of which?
someday of someone in this website gets ahold of a 35mm negative of toy story.
we should contribute in this work.
Dvd is in the 2.35:1 aspect ratio. But the films were shot in open matte so the VHS has some information on the top and bottom that aren’t in the widescreen version.
True, but there are open matte versions available to stream in HD.
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.
Any chance you can share the raw video rather than a Youtube video?
I’m assuming you’re not going to edit in the movie clips in true HD.
On this website, you can watch the video frame by frame and see for yourself that Toy Story has never shown in 30 fps, let alone 60, not even on other recent showings.

yes because every time i go to a theater it shows the movie in 60fps.
Is that so? Then the only movie you’ve been to recently was Gemini Man in 3D.
I think LHUX was trying to be sarcastic. It’s really tough to tell the intended tone of plain text.
Do you have any way to capture your VHS? I have a digital VHS capture of the show and the Making Of tape and both of the tapes seem to have about a minute or so of runtime before the performance.
here is a video that i made back in November that should give us footage of the regal unlimited Dr X-Plor advent and the proof that it being in 24 fps. video was recorded in 30 fps
Alright, where is the proof that Toy Story has been shown in 60 fps?
Because that was how the film was presented in. However, i’m unsure if it was 48 fps or 60 fps though.
What’s your source? I fairly certain that Toy Story has never been shown in theaters in any other frame rate other than 24.
Nice work so far (although it would look even better color-corrected)!
Assuming the audio track on that print is 5.1 (or Dolby Stereo Digital, as it was billed back then), do you plan to capture it that way?
I’m a complete newbie when it comes to audio, but I think the audio on the print is stereo.
However, the DVD release of this short includes a 5.1 track, so I’m planning to mux that into the final! I’ll also include the print’s original track for completeness’ sake.
There is a way to know for sure.
If your print has a grey area between the sprocket holes labelled with the Dolby Double-D logo in the middle like the picture above, then that means that the print has a Dolby Surround track.
I would be interested in taking a look at this.
Can anyone provide me with a complete copy of the real ghostbusters series in 1080p?
I wish I can help you, but due to the current crisis, I haven’t been able to find motivation to continue this project. I want to finish what I started, but the way I see it, I can’t do it alone. Any help, both technical and financial would be much appreciated. What I mean by financial help is that I am considering buying Topaz Video Enhance AI to speed up the process, however the $199 price is too much for my wallet. But if nothing else comes up, I can resume work on this in 2021.
I heard Pingu got 3 LaserDisc volumes in Japan.
According to the laserdisc database, there’s 6 volumes of Pingu only released in Japan.
Is Darkwing Duck on Disney+? If so, then which version of the episode is available?
I am also going to donate 10$ via PayPal if that’s all right.
Over on Blutopia, you can now enjoy the first season of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine in 4K with a 1080p release coming in the future. Personally, I’m waiting for the 1080p release as the 4K release apparently has some aspect ratio issues, so if anyone can share their thoughts on this upscale, I’d appreciate it.
