Would you happen to have an automated process to cut up the original files into each shot as an individual file without any recompression, modification or data loss?
For other films, RotJ, was looking at an After Effects plugin which ‘spots’ film edits. So the program would hopefully spot the easy 90% of the shots which don’t look the same at the edits, then tweak that to find tune. But didn’t get into that at all before my SW life derailed. Otherwise back to Avisync and just scroll and write down the values, try to do a minute or two at a time and over a few months it’s all done.
I was thinking about this myself actually, And Ive just remembered my simpsons restoration scripts have a scene change detector which worked okay, a bit of tweaking could get it working better. Just having it export frames to a txt file and dump into avisynth. All my shot cheking was done in premiere pro, setting the TC display to frame counts.
Is your random selection done in the spreadsheet or a script of the video editor program?
It’s a spreadsheet script, which generates a random number, you pick the sync (GOUT/SE/BR ect) and then it will select between GOUT only sources or all sources based on criteria from the dataset. then the ins and outs are moved into an AVisynth script format.
Remember to write yourself very explicit notes on how you did each step. Ran into many steps I couldn’t reproduce when trying to complete the ESB version of AARRSSTW. Have thus far given up with the frustration, my apathy towards computing is making me a pissy piece of shit. Happy happy joy joy. Good Luck!
Yes definitly. My simpsons project is stalled because i forgot how my script worked. Just a big fat mess that needs rewriting.
