Not to crap on this, but the scanning colors are waaaaayyyy offf It all looks milky. Not the way the film actually looks in 35mm.
I like that in this transfer, clipped whites in all home video versions of the film (including the 3D) clearly have some information here. Clearly this film need a 4K redo (ie adjusting the clipped stuff, grain restore)
Cool you know the manga video dub is already sync to an HD version it’s on YT.
There are two ways to match audio, either you do it by ear and by matching the waves forms, which means sometimes the people doing it make tiny cuts so that the audio stays in sync.
Alas it’s wrong because a) you alter the original audio b) from one master to another, the audio never match exactly because it wasn’t captured the same way, but when you view it with the image, you won’t notice the tiny ms differences.
Or you do it like I do, which is syncing the audio by matching the image to the available current master.
In that case, you don’t have to worry about the waveforms being exactly in sync on every version you sync. It worked for the source master, then it will work for the new one as the frames of the film are the same.
The only modifications are adding missing audio at the end of reels or beginning, when the source master misses some footage.
I advocate as a rule to always sync by frame matching. It works 99,99% of the time.
Not sure, maybe they did a real mono version. I listened to it years ago but forgot. It could be cool to get it again.
Awesome, did you rip the mono mix? It’s on the analog track.
Hi guys, I’m currently syncing all available mono mixes for another project.
I tried to sync the mono mixes rips from the 1995 THX LD that previously had been released all over the web, and sadly, I must report those mixes were cut down to match the 5.1 track, meaning some parts of the sound are missing.
I’m currently awaiting for a new rip of this THX LD, that I will resync without any cuts being made to the original audio. The only improvement will be filling in the blanks at the end of the reels changes.
you can follow the progress on fanres.
You sir are awesome.
Awesome, looking forward to it! Great work!
All these are available on public trackers. However I would be interested to know if fanfiltration original LD rip of the complete chronological saga is available somewhere. It’s unique because that LD version had all three films in open matte full screen.
Hey guys, this edit was made on SD DVD quality so I thrashed it. I wanted to redo it in HD but the whole event with the DNRed Blu-ray master put me off it. I think I may redo it later using the HDTV which is sightly cropped on all four sides, but offers solid grain and color and picture quality.
FCPX has made it so much easier now to do these.
Don’t forget what reshoots means these days. Since most scenes are done with green screen, they don’t have redo everything if they replace a character or a performance. They just need to block the actors the same way, and swap the previous green screened actors with the new ones, keeping all the VFX shot. Easy as pie.
There was an iTunes version I got it like years ago, but deleted it since the file was fairly compressed. Maybe it’s the same one.
There’s no Blu-ray of True Lies, not even in Albany.
I doubt this version will be released, when it get released, this will be an all new scan. Archive this one while you can!
I think it might be source from iTunes?
It had NL subs so maybe it’s from NL.
It looks pretty clean, the pans are without any strobe.
Regarding open matte with russian audio, check if the station logo doesn’t intemitently appear. That new one was released a while back, but the station logo that pops in and out ruins the presentation.
If you have an older one, then muxes with DTS audio already exists out there.
Ouh là ne prend pas mal, mais dans certains caps au début du sujet, les intelettrages sont à l’arrache, dans les videos demos aussi. peut être devrait tu les supprimer !
Si tu as tout conformer, bravo !
Salut, bravo pour ce projet. Cependant avant que tu le release à nouveau, as tu bien fixe l’interlettrage dans tous les textes cartons pour être exactement comme l’original?
Les espaces entre les lettres font amateur, il faut vraiment conformer tous les cartons à l’identique. J’ai vu que tu as ajusté pour le début, mais pour le générique de fin, j’ai l’impression que tout est en spacing 0.
Toutes ses choses sont très facile a conformer sous photoshop ou FCPX ou Adobe pour le déroulant, il te suffit de placer l’original dessous en transparence, et d’ajuster ligne par ligne mot par mot pour que tout soit identique.
Sous FCPX, tu as même un plug inclus pour faire le crawl, plus besoin de créer le texte sous photoshop tu le fais dans FCPX direct.
Milles excuses si tu as déjà ajusté ces éléments là, mais je n’ai pas vu de mention dans les dernières pages.
Je peux t’aider pour les polices et l’interlettrage panneaux fixes si tu cales.
Pour les fonts exacts, as tu utilisé whatthefont?
Yes bring it on!
Can’t remember. Falcon, how do you figure out the order? Do you watch all the videos in the Blu-ray folder and sort it out, or is they a software way that can produced the seamless order list of each version?
Can’t you use the TC seam for this point? It plays that way in the TV cut as listed here.
Oh I know I’m awaiting it! But it’s nice to get a full lenght one (the TV cut has some slight edit that PDB will follow) with the subs & all. Just done it and it’s perfect.
Hey man, thanks a lot for this. I will try to rip my Aliens Blu-ray and do the custom TV cut.
I wonder if there is a way with Terminator 2, to do also a middle of the road cut, that would involve the best scenes from the SE and remove the stupid parts like the smile scene. But what to keep?
I have it if you want to resync it. Including the original french mono dub.
Hi, some frames are missing in most DVDs and Blu-ray because when syncing the soundtracks, labs removes frames whenever there’s a problem in the sync, hoping no one would notice. Filmmakers have seen their work so many times, they usually don’t notice. They seldom rewatch their films in fact.
I’m totally confused by the new board layout, can’t find my PM. But PM me I might be able to point you to a TV recording of this one. (the lelouch produced travesty)
What’s the point of preserving this one? It’s Ed Wood level filmmaking. The TV airings are good enough for archival purposes. It’s not a version one would review again and again.
