At the same time, I am neck deep in my ground up re-capture and re-master with the addition of the new sources. I have updated capture equipment as well as an updated process. So you may want to wait on those. Your call.

I started in earnest about a month ago once all of my new equipment was in place. I’ve finished the first episode and moving on the the next. Will probably be another month at the very least.

Oooohh! This will be good!

Beware! Most times these “helpful” videos only take you further down a rabbit hole. It’s only too easy to take advantage of a desperate user and have them install even more malware. Proceed with extreme skepticism!

Help & Advice Wanted: 'Destroy All Monsters' - AIP dub 16mm...
Time

It would be cool to see this as a grindhouse-style project, even with minimal clean-up and colour correction.

Do you think this print is in any way different, content-wise, to the other sources you have for the AIP version?
Even if the actual images turn out unusable, the print could be a good (better?) source for the soundtrack. It may also provide a verification (or not) of the frame-accuracy of your previous reconstruction.

Yes, frame blending is there - that’s why I posted the “double laser sword” screenshot! 😄

Still, DVD has the perspective fixed, so I don’t know that I can do with it, apart denoise, grain plate, and eventual deblocking and color correction.

I leave it entirely up to you to judge whether it is worth the effort or not. Let me know, okay? 😄

Andrea, take a look at my rundown of some Ep II DVD bootlegs on page 10 of this thread:
http://originaltrilogy.com/topic/Theater-Performance-Preservations/id/12161/page/10
(Unfortunately, some screengrabs are missing due to ImageShack messing up.)

I’m wondering if one of these DVDs might be from the same source as your Centropy SVCD? If they are, they would be even better than a SVCD copy, right?

Monster Zero - HD reconstruction (Released)
Time

Finally!

The delay has been all my fault. The first three covers were finished nearly three weeks ago but I wanted to add one with the German poster. I couldn’t find any good images of it online so I ended up ordering the actual poster on eBay ($58 shipped, but what can you do?). After some unnecessary delays in the post, I finally received the poster yesterday and here at last are all the covers and discart for Red Menace’s MONSTER ZERO restoration project.





These will be included in the actual upload, but drop me a message and I’ll set you up directly.

Thanks for everyones’ patience.

Ghidrah the Three-Headed Monster - US version HD reconstruction (Released)
Time

Having just seen the finished project in its entirety, all I can say is thank you once again for all the effort and attention to detail you put in. The editing is seamless, the colours are wonderful and the amount of grain is just right. Apart from a single sound dropout (at 15:37) the sound was perfect, preserving some of the wonderfully analog crackly nature of its 16mm origins.

Also, thank you to all of you who contributed your resources and advice. Truly this is the work of a community working together and pooling its resources. It’s a great time to be a Godzilla fan!

Oh, and once again, thank you for the shout-out in the credits 😃

Will you guys be pooling your resources, perhaps? Red Menace is making the most out of what he has, but it appears to me you have even more resources at your disposal.

If it’s any help, I guess so.

Perhaps not my place to say, as he may not even need “help”, but if you’d send him your 16mm reference video, the 16mm audio from the Australian DVD and your recreation of the opening credits, his project would move up a notch. Or are you currently working on a similar HD recreation yourself?
