Cast A Deadly Spell
Time

The HD source I have had subtitles that I exported to be able to use in Encore and I think it messed them up severely so I had to redo them, missing dialog and wrong sentences and the sync was all out of whack.
Having tested the disc at home the subtitles work and look great though.
Encore is a great tool for making Blu Rays but their subtitle feature is lacking quite a bit.

Cast A Deadly Spell
Time

The project is finished. Subtitles were a pain in the ass and I’m not sure they work properly (were wonky when I played the ISO on VLC but I still have to test the disc at home in a regular player)
I cut together a unrated audio track which sounds pretty good considering the source I used. There’s also a mono track as well as a Turkish and a Russian dub I found.

You can find the ISO along with cover art and disc art over at the star wars trilogy forums.

Thanks for your help Doc!

Cast A Deadly Spell
Time

I’m doing a “Special Edition” Blu ray for this under seen gem. I’m using the HD version that’s floating out there, taken from a HBO stream most likely. With it is the trailer that I remade in HD and a “Noir” Black and white version of the film. I didn’t just simply make it black and white but went scene by scene to ensure the contrasts was good as many scenes have stark saturated single colours and when they get turned to BW they become flat, with little contrast. I also added grain to the BW version.

This also comes with english subtitles that I’m working on right now.

This will be a dual layer Blu Ray in the end.

Here is the trailer I remade in HD, using the audio track from a low res version I found online.

And here is the cover I did for it.

I too made my own Special Edition of the Holiday Special.
I used the “Broadcast Master” copy that’s out there and blew it up to 720p.
I gathered a few extras for the disc as well, a commentary track that I found by the B-Movie podcast as well as various clips of the cast and crew discussing making the thing as well as the commercials and the CBS promo.

When I figure out how to upload the ISO up to trackers I’ll do it.

you don´t use the bluray for some scenes?

No. I just don’t see the point to be honest. I like my turds pure, not polished.

^ Love that - looks very iconic and effective in it’s simplicity - something which would sit proudly on a shelf or display with other dvds, blu rays and collections etc.

Plus, with the border surrounding the actual image… anyone could quite easily adapt it for use with their own particular appealing/favourite piece of artwork.

Hope you do another couple more covers for the other parts of the Trilogy 😉

Sweet work, Oswarez 💥 👍
 

^ very cool ! is the drawing by Oswarez ? it looks like a Tom Jung poster concept that I remember seeing somewhere .Either way , it’s a very good package design and layout !

No this is an old concept poster. Thanks for the props guys.

So am I to understand there will be a Swedish overdubbed audio option?

Sorry, it’s English audio with Swedish subtitles.  Interestingly, Chewbacca’s name appears to be “Tugg”.  Hmm, now might be a good time to ask the question that the subtitles left me with — what’s a “misslycat”?

Tugg means chewing in Swedish. It’s the same with the original Icelandic translation as well. Chewbacca was originally named Tobaks Tugga which translates to tobacco chew. Later on he was renamed Loðinn which just means hairy.

THE KEEP?
Time

Seeing how many preservation projects that are going on here from 35mm prints, films that are easily available in HD, isn’t anyone doing a 35mm preservation of The Keep? I’d be all over that and I know that there is a pretty rabid following for that particular film especially since an official HD release is slim to none.

Are prints of it especially hard to come by?

Audio issue with 4K83
Time

Hey.
So I got the full 4K version of the package and I wanted to down convert it to regular Blu. I had allot of problems converting it, TSMuxer couldn’t handle it, Adobe Media Encoder couldn’t handle it (something about the file not having a set frame rate) but DVDFab had no problem crushing it down to manageable size and format.
So now I have the film in .m2ts format that I can Demux but for some reason the video and audio are not the same length. This is probably due to the afore mentioned frame rate issues but weird none the less ( the basic film only blu I burned from the DVDFab ISO plays and syncs fine).

So I wanted to know how can I either change the frame rate on the film to match the audio? A more simple question is; what is the frame rate of the audio?

My Blu ray trilogy covers
Time

I made these based on the original CBS/FOX VHS covers and copied them exactly. I made the original one for the Silver screen edition and then I made the rest hoping to complete the collection one of these days.

The Original Trilogy restored from 35mm prints
Time

Wow. Just learned about this project a few minutes ago. Really exciting stuff. Empire looks incredible. I just made myself a Blu Ray copy of the Grindhouse V2 and it looks off, way too much grain clean up, and unnatural/digital looking color correction. I’m a stickler for authenticity and want it as pure as can be.

I adore the way the Silver Screen version looks and this looks to be on par with that. Amazing work and I look forward to hopefully enjoy them in the future.

Done with the label!! It’s meant to go with the Disney releases that way you can display it nicely with the last Jedi 4K Blu Ray. I will work on a slipcover and a disc label next.
Tell me what you think!
{Btw, you are totally free to use that as the official artwork 😉}

I would have the text over the image of Darth and Ben fighting white instead of black with yellow outline and the text in the box below only black. It’s too busy now and hard to read.
