You probably know already but Night Trap recently had its original source negatives found and scanned for re-release. They basically “remade” the game and it looks gorgeous. There’s a clear demand for projects like that but movement on any of them is little to none unfortunately.

Negatives? I was under the impression that Night Trap was shot on video.

Night Trap was actually shot on 35mm film, but that’s not what was used for the 25th Anniversary Remaster. The 35mm negatives are lost, so what you see in the game are time-synced tape masters that James Riley (the director of Night Trap) kept. There’s a few tape glitches and some scenes are missing outright, which you can see here

Wow I thought they got the negatives! It still looks really good.

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974) Mangowolf Edition [V2 AVAILABLE NOW VIA PM]

Look, I made this project because it interests me. I’m sorry I didn’t do it with the sources I was apparently supposed to use, I just used what was available to me. I’m not going to buy another copy of the movie just so this project can be completed by the standards that were apparently expected from me. If it truly is a “lost cause”, then I’m just done with it. If you guys really need it to be in 4K with lossless audio, you are free to try the project yourselves.

Dude no one said they wanted it in 4k, they were giving an example of sources without video and audio errors. The 4k disc happens to be a valid source for this along with the new UK BD.

The newest UK edition has original mono audio; what we got in the states is a fold-down of the 5.1 remix. If you’d like I can rip that track for ya if you’d like that instead.

No thanks. The original pioneer DVD has the REAL original mono mix. The 40th Anniversary and UK bluray were ripped from the 35mm version which had edits to the audio as mentioned in the first post.

That’s the first I’ve heard mention of this anywhere. Details? I’m not sure you’re following what I’m trying to explain: the U.S. Bluray from Dark Sky has a newly mixed 7.1 audio mix with messed-up sound effects, and the mono audio on said disc has the same problem because it’s simply a downmix from the 7.1. Second Sight’s UK release’s mono track does not have any soundtrack problems because it’s the actual mono track and not a downmix from an altered source. They’ve been compared and discussed online. If there are truly two different mono tracks out there that’s a first for me. lol

Looking for workprints that were floating around in trading circles in the 1990's & 2000's!
Time

I’ve heard conflicting reports as to what Crash’s workprint is. One particular post claimed it ran roughly 160 minutes, another that it runs “10 minutes longer than the R-rated cut” which if true, makes it no different than what was released in theaters as it was put out uncut at NC-17. The R-rated “cut” was assembled for the DVD only via seamless branching.

If the workprint truly is longer than the “uncut” version I’d love to see it too.

The UHD disc format, still Blu-ray disc but different 0 and 1, uses HEVC/H.265 for the video codec and uses a better compression algorithm. AVC is H.264 and is widely used on Blu-ray disc amongst other digital formats.
The Blu-ray disc released by WB for Stephen King’s IT (1990) uses the AVC codec. As obviously stated in this thread it’s the edited 187 minute version compared to unedited sans commercials as was broadcast.

Well the PS4 plays Blu-Rays, but idk about HEVC. I would imagine so.

I know it plays Blu-ray discs. Does it play UHD or is that the PS4 Pro or Cheeheadmullet or what?

Do you have access to a Blu burner? If so, I’d simply grab a cheap pack of 25GB blanks and burn a menuless Blu-ray movie folder structure & be good to go. TSmuxer spits those right out easy as pie.

I always buy spindles (50 count) of Optical Quantum 25GB 6x logo top. Runs me around $27 and they’re very great quality if you store them correctly. Have always made sure to use Verification/Verify with IMGBurn and burns in about 30 minutes. After I create an ISO from the Blu-ray disc folder with IMGBurn, I re-use IMGBurn to just burn the disc. BDRebuilder helps too if you don’t want a BD50, unnecessary audio/subtitle tracks which some fan preservationists and fan edits have.

I recently tried those Optical Quantum discs, super cheap for a pack of dual layer discs. According to my drive they’re generic branded Taiyo Yuden discs which are the ones Verbatim uses. Hella cool and so far nice burns.

The Mummy (1999) 35mm Feature Film SCOPE print!!!
Time

@dvdmike, maybe. But there’s just something else, watching a film print. It’s like getting transported back in time. An experience, that you won’t get from watching clean digitised video.

Anyway, the print has been sold, so that’s that.

The new 4k disc is pretty faithful and non-digital looking from what I’ve heard, yo

Would still totally love to see this get scanned though!

TITANIC 35mm Preservation!

Some people need to get hobbies and get off their holier-than-thou high horse over a movie.

Titanic (1997) is completely overrated, IMO. The Blu-ray disc release isn’t good enough for you rabid fans?
Typing more about James Cameron, really hoping the Avatar sequels go shit at the box office.

I’m such a rabid fan I’ve only watched this movie once and find the thought of a 35mm print scan a curiosity and nothing more. Can’t get any more rabid than that!
