The Terminator - Color Regrade [No Longer Available]
Time

Also, after the Terminator finds Sarah’s mother address in the notepad, during the shot where the Terminator walks in the corridor of his hotel holding his machine guns and passing by a black dude who says “what the hell” (or something like that), try and see if we see the Terminator shoes. Depending on the framing, I heard that Arnold was wearing snickers intead of the Terminator boots for that shot.

Alien saga [Fundamental Collection] (Released)

On “Aliens”, have you replaced the shot of Bishop cut in half reaching for Newt that reveals the bottom part of Lance Henricksen’s body? Or have you left the digital correction made for the Blu-ray?
Also, I read about the order of some shots when Ripley gets the guns and uses Scotch tape to join them before going to search for Newt. Apparently, the original editing made a mistake in its order and the Blu-ray cut corrected that also. Did you go back to the original cut or did you leave it the way it was on the Blu-ray?

FACE/OFF - complete 35mm scan opportunity (WIP)

@Beber- Did it even have DTS? I know it had SDDS. Digital audio isn’t too important anyway since the Bluray will have better quality audio than cinema DTS. You’ll have the optical audio though if you want to listen to that.

Hopefully if thxita gets more than needed for this he can get the trailer scanned too!

The ending credits show the “Digital dts sound in selected theaters” logo. Movies tend to be remixed for home theater purposes, so it’s cool to have the true original sound as an option if we can get it.

Which country is that print from? I mean, in what language are the credits? No burnt-in subtitles here and there?

What’s planned about the audio? Do you have the theatrical dts CD to go along with it? Are there missing frames? Is it going to be Bluray-sync friendly (and if so, Paramount or Buena Vista?) so that we can add any audio tracks we want?

I know I’m asking a lot of questions, but for 75€ to spare, I’d like to know what I’m buying.

Info Wanted: Best Sources of 'The Keep' 1983?
Time

The movie is currently airing on TCM Cinéma in France, entitled “La Forteresse noire”. It’s in actual 2.35:1, looking quite good in HD, though it looks soft. Probably not a real HD master. I wish I could extract the recording from the hard drive of my Freebox, but I can’t, it’s protected. I’ve never seen the movie, but I’ll give it a shot sooner or later.

Raiders of the Lost Ark 35mm LPP Theatrical Experience - v1.0 (Released)
Time

That’s very cool. However, while watching it by bits here and there, I noticed the framing was a bit weird. So I looked closer and saw that the bottom black bar is thicker than the top one and that the aspect ratio is about 2.33:1 instead of the expected 2.35.:1. Hopefully, the eventual v2.0 release will make this right as it should also help getting rid of the “glued frames”, I believe they’re called, which appear frequently at cuts. By the way, do you already have that second print you mentionned? How much money is required at the moment to get it scanned and stored?

Alien/Aliens Color Regrade (a WIP)

So this sudden switch from purple to teal during the same shot (no cut) is not a mistake?

I thought that maybe something went wrong when applying your settings and that it didn’t cover the shot until the end and that the Blu-ray colors popped-up.

Alien/Aliens Color Regrade (a WIP)
Time

I just finished it, too. It looks pretty good, though I noticed something weird at 32:19 - 32:20. The purplish tone switches suddenly to tealish. Also, in the first dinner/kitchen scene, some skin tones look as if the crew suffered from liver failure. And finally, a couple shots seamed almost monochromatic or black and white, like Ash running to get warmer or the outside shot of the [i]Nostromo[/i] taking off. Maybe all that is supposed to be that way, it’s just some stuff I noticed while watching it.

I’ve watched it with the “new” rare 5.1 audio track. Sounds pretty cool. Some lines were missing when they investigate the alien ship. I noticed that because it was subtitled anyway. And the line “Kane’s son” is barely audible.

All in all, thanks. It was nice to see it that way.

Okay, so now my question : when I split the video to get rid of your introduction so I just have the movie on its own, I noticed the audio came down from 256 kbps to 192 kbps, according to MediaInfo. So my guess is that the 256 kbps only concern your introduction, right? Isn’t 192 kbps a little down? What is it supposed to be when the Dolby is decoded from the print?

Actually, we used the GOUT audio, at 192k. For the Bluray, we are going to try to use higher bitrates, and better versions of the Audio.

Team Negative1

Oh, I see. I thought it was the audio from the print, just like with the grindhouse “Empire”. Okay, then, that’s one of the future improvement. Thanks.

First of all, a huge thank you, guys! I didn’t know it was ready when I bumped onto it on Blu-torrents, and then saw it on MySpleen as well. I watched it once and a half already, and it is so cool. After recently seeing [i]Minority Report[/i] in 35mm and [i]The Hateful Eight[/i] in gorgeous 70mm, now [i]Star Wars[/i] in digital-35mm, it’s just awesome. I wish I had a videoprojector now… As I see it’s a v1 and as I noticed there’s still room for some improvement, I’m excited to see what will come out of this in the future.

Harmy's RETURN OF THE JEDI Despecialized Edition HD - V2.5 - AVCHD DVD9 & NTSC DVD5 (Released)
Time

OK, so when applying my own resynchronized French subtitles with time-codes based on frames, I’ve noticed what will also cause audio sync issues : there are 2 moments with frame differences between this new workprint and v1.0.

  • The 1st one is a 2-frame difference that occurs at frame 68664 or 68666 (frame number noted from VirtualDubMod). The very end of the spaceship shot right before you see the 2 guys walking down the corridor.

  • The 2nd one is a 1-frame difference that occurs at frame 141781 or 141782 (frame number noted from VirtualDubMod). The very end of the shot where you see trees lying on the ground, right before you see an Ewok running away from stormtroopers right on his tail.

Maybe it’s the same thing like before, when the GOUT PAL DVD is different in frame count than the GOUT NTSC DVD. Anyway, I don’t know wich frame count was used for the audio tracks on v1.0. Was it out of sync then and will it be right on this time? Or is it the other way? You guys are the ones to adress to about that stuff. I’m just the reporting guy.

Info: The Matrix - with original theatrical color timing?
Time

Okay, so I watched the 35mm version from the Spleen, and a guy there gave this link to another LPP: http://www.angelfire.com/or/raylearchive/#35

When I see this : http://img15.hostingpics.net/pics/329851Trinity1.jpg
Then this other LPP : http://img15.hostingpics.net/pics/545850Trinity2.jpg
And finally the Blu-ray : http://img15.hostingpics.net/pics/292306Trinity3.jpg

I feel compelled to aknowledge that the Blu-ray, at least for this shot, looks quite right compared to the other LPP.
