Dirty Harry - Color Regrade and New 5.1 remix project (Released)
Time

The original mono or stereo tracks require edits to be in sync with the BD, + they require the center channel of the 5.1 to keep the sync double checked, as some LD scenes have additional frames but the audio is untouched.

One wish indeed they materialise on 4K, with both the mono and stereo original tracks included, but one doubt it since this is Warner. You’ll get the exact same tracks as before. Check out the Eastwood thread on the other forum for more information.

I think this was an asnwer print mistakenly sent overseas.

There’s no problem with the file, get it again or maybe check your computer setup and clean cache and stuff.

An answer print is the first version of a given motion picture that is printed to film after color correction on an interpositive. It is also the first version of the movie printed to film with the sound properly synced to the picture.

Answer prints are created during the post-production process after editing, dubbing and other related audio work and special effects sequences have been finished or completed to a degree satisfactory for pre-release viewing. They are used by the filmmaker and studio to ensure that the work going into the film during the post-production process is cohesive with the final goals for the project. In effect, it is a post-edit editing where the filmmaker can observe and direct the course of the film’s final look and feel as it pertains to color correction, sound and special effects elements and overall pacing. Pre-release screenings for test audiences are often run from late answer print copies of the film, because often the filmmaker is using the screening as a way to help direct final choices regarding the finished project.

When the last answer print is approved and finalized, it is used to make an internegative from which the release prints are struck.

So I checked out the mono track on another rip (not of this one, of the SE).

Clearly, the mono is remixed and is not a fold-down.

I’m guessing some low level theaters got the mono mix initially, and Cameron being then the crazy director he was, did custom mixes for different theaters (ie some got the stereo mix DS, some the mono mix, some the 70mm 5.1 mix)

So a rip of the mono mix would be nice, it levels the film with the original, and really crunches 😃

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.

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.

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.

Info: True Lies - Archival Project???
Time

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.

Preserving "French" Original Trilogy - ANH V1.0 released - ESB in progress

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?
