The Official babyhum Release Thread
Time

Hello all,

In order to release the long awaited bh019 I'm going to need a little help from the more technically savvy of you wonderful people.

I have recorded a show from Channel 4 HD here in the UK on my Humax HDR Freesat box in UNencrypted non-Freesat mode. It plays fine in VLC, but I want to remove the commercials and top and tail the rubbish AND keep it lossless. 

I've tried loading the .TS file into TMPGenc MPEG editor 3 but it tells me there is no video track.

VideoREDO suite will save the file after editing with a filesize of 0kb.

ProjectX will not detect the video track.

It will convert into an MKV container (my new release method of choice) but unedited.

The video is h264 and the audio is AC3 which is why I want to use MPEG Editor 3 to get rid of the garbage.

Any help would be appreciated.

Regards

bh

P.S. If you haven't yet checked out JD's 'Raiding The Lost Ark', do so immediately

Very briefly: Did a short test. It's hard to notice any difference when you have source material that is now nearly 30 years old! I might put a test up online for everyone to download. I do want some advice on something though. I want to resize the frame (not the image itself) to 1920x1080. This will pillar box the image. The original footage is DV so what's the easiest way of doing this?

I just want to know if there's any interest out there for it.

 

 

On this Clapperboard (v3) work, will it require a new cap from the beta source.  Or do you still have the original cap, and are trying to improve the compression of that source?  

none

The source is the original DV capture I did directly from the Betamax original. I'll be deinterlacing, possibly upscaling to 1920x1080 with pillar box and containing it in an mkv file.

I'll let you know how I progress

Hello all.

Long time no see.

I'm glad to see the scene is still thriving here and lots of fantastic projects are still in the works.

As you know it's been a while since my last release. I had great fun doing my set of DVD's but then real life took over. (It's a very time consuming process as many of you authors know).

I've been toying for a while with the idea of releasing some new material and also rereleasing some of the older stuff in a better quality format. I just want to know if there's any interest out there for it.

I'm not promising it's definitely going to happen but it would be nice to get some feedback.

This weekend I'm going to experiment with bh001 (Clapperboard). I'm going to try encoding it with h264 video and lossless PCM audio and see what comes out at the other end. I'll be using Handbrake on the Mac. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Good to see everyone keeping this place alive.

Regards

Bring Back... Star Wars (Channel Four Documentary)
Time

As many of you will already know, this coming Sunday Channel 4 Television in the UK will be screening 'Bring Back... Star Wars' with Justin Lee Collins attempting to reunite members of the cast of Star Wars. I will be recording the digital terrestrial transmission of the show for eventual release, but is anyone going to be recording the HD version from Channel 4 HD. If so, let me know. I'd like to make it my first HD release.

Cheers!

THE STAR WARS SAGA - 1080P AVCHD DVD-9 for PS3 & Blu-Ray players - Episodes 1, 4 & 5 available now
Time

I've been watching this thread with great interest and can't wait to see Adywan's results. The demo looked fantastic on my PS3. It's the next step in my releases but until enough HD content becomes available I'm taking it slowly. The one question I do have is, has anyone tried Roxio's DVDit HD. I'd like to include menus on my releases and bar Scenarist I think this is the only program that will allow you to do that. Also, is a regular photoshopped 1920x1080 jpeg image good enough for menus and slideshows or are there any special requirements such as pixel aspect ratio etc.

Good luck Adywan! Can't wait!

A request from babyhum
Time
Well hello there...

Firstly let me apologise for my lengthy absence. Every now and then, your personal life takes priority and I'm afraid mine became a big priority.

My grandmother, who suffered from Alzheimer's passed away last year, and now, someone else very close to me, has been diagnosed with the condition.
Alzheimer's is a progressive and terminal disease for which there is currently no cure. In its early stages, short-term memory loss is the clearest symptom: this leads to confusion, anger, mood swings, language breakdown, long-term memory loss, and the general withdrawal of the sufferer as his or her senses decline. Gradually the sufferer loses minor, and then major bodily functions, until death occurs.

When it happens to someone you've known your whole life, heartbreaking is an understatement.

In September of this year I will be undertaking a sponsored trek across the Andean Mountains in Peru in aid of the Alzheimer's Society.

All I ask of you generous folk is that you sponsor me as much as you can (£1 would do, a tenner would be fantastic, anything higher would be incredible. I need to raise a total of £2800 by June in order for me to take part.

You can send me a donation by visiting http://www.justgiving.com/perupot

Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to sponsor me: Alzheimer's Society will receive your money faster and, if you are a UK taxpayer, an extra 28% in tax will be added to your gift at no cost to you.

Anyone donating £20 or more will not only be contributing to a very worthy cause but will also be automatically sent a copy of my next release (at my own expense, not the charities) and will be entered into a draw to win a special prize (details to follow, but it will be good!)

Thank you all for taking the time out to read this post.
Regards

To all,
Thank you for all you recent emails and posts. Yes it has been quiet on the babyhum front of late. I'm afraid life takes precedence sometimes. There will be further bh releases. When? I don't know. I had hoped to get my Star Wars The Legacy Revealed disc out by now but my computer had different ideas about that and checked itself into the Apple repair centre before I could proceed. I wouldn't be lying if I said I'd lost interest slightly in 'the scene' of late. Sometimes it feels like 'it's all been done'. But then I receive a disc in the mail hungering to be released. I'd like to thank everyone who has sent me material. It will see the light of day. Let's just pray (and not prey) that we get that Michel Parbot documentary released and stir everyone's fire again.
Patience
