team negative1 - star wars 1977 - 35mm theatrical version (release details and updates)
Time

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.

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.  :)

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?

Retiming dvd structure
Time

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.

how to get back to 16:9?
Time

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:
Width:720
Height:480
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.

THX 1138 "preservations"
Time

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.
