Jurassic Park 35mm Restoration Project? Where is it? :(

There is more information here:
http://originaltrilogy.com/topic/Team-Negative1-Unofficial-Jurassic-Park-35mm/id/18007

Some of the project is still available, and will be released by other
members at some point in time.

What would you say the chances are of having this completely gone through and uploaded? Downloading the current one that’s roughly 21GB large. I’m interested in seeing it!

“Audio track #1 (default) is Cinema DTS ripped from CDs that were playing in theatres 22 years ago. This is the recommended track to watch this release with.”

This definitely caught my attention, wowzers!

There is a 35mm film print scan available online. I wouldn’t call it an “end all” release, but it probably looks the best of anything you could watch. If the guys who scanned it ever get the time and/or money to make a finished release, that would be great, but to my knowledge that hasn’t happened yet.

And a 35mm copy isn’t the same as Harmy’s Star Wars releases. He uses 35mm sources, but they are Blu-ray based.

Do you know where I can find this 35mm film print for Jurassic Park?

I’ve spent many months trying to find an “END ALL” remaster of Jurassic Park like Harmy is doing for the original Star Wars trilogy, but I cannot seem to find it. Does anyone know if such a project exist, and if it does, could someone point me in the right direction?

It’s a damn shame that something this important in filmmaking hasn’t had a “proper treatment” by 2017 … wow … 😦

Harmy's STAR WARS Despecialized Edition HD - V2.7 MKV IS OUT NOW

The 1.0 versions of all three movies, which draw primarily from the DVDs and laserdisc footage, are all released. Harms has put out HD versions of Star Wars and Empire (2.5 and 2.0, respectively) that use the Blu Rays as their basis and use more 35mm footage. He's working on 2.0 of Jedi currently.

Where can I download 2.5 for Star Wars and Empire to burn on Blu-Ray? Thank You.

Does anyone else on here take the existing MKV and AVCHD files (for ROTJ), and convert them to an HD mp4 via Handbrake?

This makes for great looking files that play on my apple tv and iPad.

To me it was a lot easier than locating a Blu Ray Burner, finding burning software, etc.

I realize it's more compressed, and burning a blu ray would look better AND allow me to hear the DTS-HD track, but until I buy a blu-ray burner, it allows me to watch these beautifully restored films in HD, on a variety of displays.

If this is a redundant post, I apologize.  I've just looked through almost every post, and I haven't seen anyone mention doing this.

 Where did you get all three films for Blu-Ray? Are they all finished?

I found 4 versions of Building Empire on usenet in a.b.starwars

If anyone is having trouble finding them there, try searching for the following:

BUILDING_EMPIRE-NTSC
BUILDING_EMPIRE-PAL
BUILDING_EMPIRE-PAL-MIAMI
MIAMI_BE_PAL_NOV_2008

I can't seem to find anything on binsearch or nzbindex

Is there any chance you could seed?

I appreciate the help and all, but I don't think I want to follow that guide. For one, it's way too long and complicated. Secondly, I don't understand a lot of that stuff so it would be pointless for me to follow. And finally, I'd much prefer some professional do it and teach me instead. 

Calibrating a TV shouldn't be that damn hard. It's rediculous to think that to achieve the DVD's intended picture I have to go through that 100 page guide. No thanks.

Yeah, I just wanted to mention the guide since some people (like me... haha) get interested when starting to read it. It mentions a lot of stuff other than the calibration process itself and explains it so I think it's one of the best there is.

But on the other hand I agree with you that it shouldn't be the way it is, that one needs to go through such a guide to get the intended picture. That's why some TV manufacturers have started to include more correct presets in their TVs. I know some of the mid- and high range Panasonic sets have Cinema/THX settings which often produce a result close to a calibration, even out of the box.

Unfortunately, as long as all that dynamic contrast bullshit sells, it will be prioritized over a correct picture.

Honestly, I'd love to get a new Panasonic, but the reason I keep my Samsung is because of the "flesh tone" option. I have old animated DVD's that were never remastered (aged film put onto DVD), which, the flesh tone option seems to color correct to where it looks like the proper colors are back (restored for the most part).

It's just that I thought with a proper calibrated TV, that flesh tone option would be even better! 

 

I also don't think Panasonic has a flesh tone option. =/

What's the best way for me to calibrate my TV for movies, anime, and what not? I want to be able to put a disc in and watch it the way it was intended.

Get a reliable colorimeter and a test disc set like AVIA.

The colormunki is cheap and works great, for something more then the i1 Display Pro is a good choice.

Myself I got a used (but only a month old) i1 Display 2 when I did my calibrations. I think colormunki is more expensive, at least it was back then. So to everyone who wants to do a calibration I'd say see if you can find a used i1 Display 2, as long as it's not a few years old. (After some years colorimeters lose their accuracy)

@animemaakuo As per the rules stated for this whole project, which no doubt you've read, you should own the source materials so as not to pirate its content through obtaining the 2.1.  So just pop in your official Blu-ray if you'd like to compare the two.

I don't have the official Blu-ray on me right now, is the audio difference fairly noticeable?
