How to change HD to DVD?
Moth3r said:

You should only deinterlace if the source is pure interlaced. If it's 3:2 pulldown telecined, then you should IVTC.


The source is a 1080i MPEG2 file. How do I know if it's 3:2 pulldown telecined?


As you can see, I know very little about those things ... I had hoped for an easy solution to my problem. But I'm afraid this is gonna be a lot more difficult than I thought ... :-(

This is a Star Trek The Motion Picture thread? I understand you excitiment over a Star Trek 6 recut but can we keep this a Fanfiltraion TMP thread. Thanks.

Of course, just let me clear this up: There are three versions of TUC:


The Theatrical Version

The Home Video/DVD Version - Including additional scenes

The Special Edition DVD Version - Including the same additional scenes plus a few re-edits

The HDTV version - The Theatrical Cut in HD (not officially released, but out there on the internet)


I don't want to turn this thread into a debate about TUC, so if you have further questions, feel free to PM me.


That being said, I can't wait for the SLV of TMP! It's my favorite version of the movie and I'd love to see it in widescreen!

Geez, all this talk of restoring other versions makes me think about my other favorite "lost Trek" movie ... the theatrical cut of Star Trek VI, without all that Scooby Doo stuff at the end.  Has anyone ever considered trying to re-create that?  It seems like it would be fairly simple, given the two versions out on DVD available to work with...

I guess the hardest part would be finding a source for the original theatrical cut, so you could tell what edits to make.  If it even exists, it would probably only be in the form of some poorly-shot bootleg taken by a video camera in the theater ... :p

The theatrical cut of TUC is already out there, and it's even in HD!

Guys, I would LOVE and NEED to get a hold of that HD2DVD version.

There are a few shots I am forced to take from the LaserDisc because they are not included anyplace on the Director's Edition DVD.

I am sure that a HD2DVD transfer looks much better.

If anyone can help me out with this project, your assistance shall not go unrewarded!


I have an 8 GB HD version of the theatrical cut on my hard drive. If that could be of any help to you, just let me know!

I just can't wait to have the extended cut in DVD quality AND widescreen!

I just noticed something strange. I still have an AVI file of TMP on my hard drive, 4:3 ratio, probably taken from the laserdisc. I wanted to compare the subtitles to the ones on your transfer, and guess what? There are no subtitles at all! Very strange ...
