When we were working on our version and I was cleaning individual frames, I remember reading that the orange marks were the glue used to hold the film splices together, since most of them were at the scene breaks.
Not just missing frames, but extra audio. I don't recall which set it was, but the destruction of Alderaan was at the end of a disc flip. The scene went black, but the audio of the explosion tapered off for a second or two after the screen went black. I don't recall specifics, because that was many years ago, but I found it very interesting. It might have been the Def. Col.
Looking at my subdirectory of scripts, I noticed that one of the AOTC scripts had the credits at the end, but most of the others didn't. Try looking up all the scripts you can find, and see if you get lucky.
Otherwise, It's likely you'll have to type them up on your own. :(
I wonder if Laserman ever found that last hard drive with the remaining ROTJ files. ;)
So, under one video template you get 23.976 and 2.0, and under a different template you get 29. and 5.1 audio? I've never used the studio version, but I know it's more limited than the regular version. This might be one of those limitations. I would try going on the Sony forums and see if someone there can help.
Well, I thought I'd come back by and see what you guys thought of the new Disney acquisition. Seems I arrived just in time to see this exciting new project.
Hard to say which way this will go. I've heard that Disney is litigious, but maybe they'll see the value of re-releasing the original versions and do it themselves?
Well. we all know how much Disney hates reissuing movies for profit, much less multiple versions and/or sequels. [/roll_eyes]
"I'm pretty sure we aren't doing anything illegal, since we aren't making any money."
Oh, the studios have that contingency covered as well...
The trailer on vimeo looked great. Can't wait to see what else you guys have done with this 35mm print. I can't remember the last time I've even watched the OT....never in the mood for it anymore. This would be a lovely change. :)
I won't buy a BD player. Media players and hard drives are sooooo much easier and media-friendly.
Maybe it's because my Vegas (Movie Studio Platinum 8.0) is an older, consumer-grade edition.
Oh, yep...I believe that is the culprit. I meant the real Vegas (as I refer to it.) Mystery solved. :)
I wonder, though...why didn't you also use Vegas to make the subsequent AC3?
Vegas 8.0 (or at least my copy) doesn't give me control of the AC3 bitrate
Well, I don't know about the other parts, but I've always been able to control the bit rate. Weird.
Next was to create the channels for my 5.1 file. In Vegas, I used the VST effect program V.I. Stereo to 5.1 Converter. If you decide to use it, you can read its manual to figure out how best to do this for you. The important thing is to end up with 6 separate Mono PCM Wav files at 16bits and 48kHz: Front Left, Front Right, Surround Left, Surround Right, Center, and LFE.
It's probably not the most efficient solution. But, when I was in a panic trying to fix this mess, it was the best I could come up with.
Interesting. I wonder if that VST was around when I made my own 2.0 to 5.1 conversion. It would have been a lot easier to split up the channels in Vegas. I wonder, though...why didn't you also use Vegas to make the subsequent AC3?
I didn't know there were ANY releases of this. I never got to see this ride, despite being a So.Cal. resident. :(
To be honest, I have no idea if a video - edited or otherwise - could be re-inserted into the original DVD structure. I would imagine that Ifoedit might make this possible. I guess it would all depend on what program you are using to re-intergrate the DVD files. I know that DVD-Lab Pro can recompile designated parts of a DVD project, so that you don't have to redo the whole thing for a few small changes, but that's a project created from scratch.
Worst case, you can try just adding those four seconds to the end of the video.
What, exactly, are you editing the video in?
Yeah, I found it last night, and am still at 0% this morning. I guess it's a bit dead. It'll be interesting to see how this version of Star Tours compares to mine.
Anyone got any links to the Star Tours preservations? I have a version that I tried to color-correct, but it still never looked very good. Too many blown-out details.
Makes me think of Dune...
PM me another email address ;-)
(surely you have more than one)
No, I don't.
And don't call him Shirley.
You might want to check your spam filter.
Any copy that's been synched to video will have undergone lossy encoding again
Unless the video was altered to match the audio.
13 minutes isn't too bad. I've done worse, believe me. ;)
If possible, give me a few frames before and after as well.
I like Ouzo!
ibleedspeed, are you using the templates in Vegas? First of all, your project settings should be:
Template: NTSC DV Widescreen (720x480, 29.970 fps)
Which would give you:
Pixel Aspect Ratio: 1.2121
Then, when you render, select the same template: (Project settings are independent from Render settings.) Click on the Custom button and go to the Video tab to change your codec.
Tell you what - render that section out with VDub and send it to me. I'll see what I can do. (Huffy would be nice, though I've seen talk of another Codec called Logarith(sp?)) Removing stuff like that was easy in Combustion because I could steal from the frame prior or after. A static image poses a different situation, but it's worth a shot. I'd hate to leave something like that in the final version if it could be helped.
