Macross: Do You Remember Love? (Released)
Time

Video Enhancer only has a non-working demo of the Neat Video plug-in.  I'll buy that plug-in next week.  Neat Video looks like it does a good job in reducing the mpeg artifacts that will be even more visible when up-scaled.  You can see demonstrations of Neat Video on youtube.

_

I'm working to next week-end and then I can get back to up-scaling the DVD letter-box, 480p video to match the BD anamorphic, 1080p video.

_

I wonder if the DYRL? BD can also have dust reduction.  In some scenes, the movie looks like some dust was trapped in between the stacked layers of plastic, painted cel animation sheets.

PFClean  software supposedly does a good job of dust removal, but it is quite expensive.  Alternatives?

In Video Enhancer, the Super Resolution first re-sizes / scales each frame by width x height and then has a manual output width x height.  I take a snapshot of the BD avi and then compare to a snapshot of the resulting up-converted DVD avi. 

Scale: 1920x1080

Output: 1920x1080

The result is that the 1080 DVD avi is letterboxed and just too small compared to the BD avi.

I have to increase both width and height for scale for the DVD video, but not change the output width and height numbers to better match to the BD video.

-

Unfortunately, the remastered DYRL DVD video is not the same film print as the DYRL BD video.  The opening BD Toho logo is slightly cropped at the top.  I can't say for sure if the whole BD movie has been likewise cropped as the Toho logo.  I will keep adjusting the Scale in Video Enhancer until the DVD avi fills the same area as the BD.

So, the up-conversion 1080p DVD avi is just a little smaller in scale than the 1080p BD avi.   The DVD avi is letter-boxed, while the BD avi takes up the whole screen with with small black bars on the top and bottom.

Sony Vegas might allow a little zooming in, but that would likely decrease the visual quality more.  I'll look in Video Enhancer and see if I can crop or scale up just a little bit more to match the BD avi.

Tmpeg Encoder was only able to encode the mpeg at 8 bit no matter how many different variations I used in Tmpeg settings to enable the 10 bit processing option.  The original DVD mpeg is 8 bit.

But, I was able to remove the 2:3 pulldown flag with DGPulldown software!

I read the ADM guide forum thread that was also posted on the Original Trilogy forum and found the DGPulldown software advise there.  In DGPulldown, the mpeg video is loaded in and I just type in 23.97 fps convert to 23.97 fps to remove the pulldown flags.  And after removing the pulldown flags from the mpeg, I ran that new 23.97 fps through the Womble GOP fixer again to correct for potential time errors.

Now, I have a 23.97 fps, 720x480, no pull-down flags mpeg that I can use for Video Enhancer.

*******

Video Enhancer does use the loss-less lagarith codec to up-convert the mpeg to an .avi !

I learned that I have to install the latest lagarith and K-lite codec pack to enable Video Enhancer to recognize and process the mpeg video otherwise the mpeg video does not work and a "can't get length" error occurs.

_

In Video Enhancer, I used the Wizard option for up-scaling. 

1. MSU De-blocking: at recommended settings because of the mpeg artifacts

2. 2D De-noiser: at recommended settings

3. Super Resolution: 1920 x 1080 p, non-interlaced at the highest processing quality

4. Lagarith codec: RGB output to match the BD color

-

The Video Enhancer preview video looks pretty good so far.

3 hours and 10 minutes to up-convert the mpeg into a lagarith .avi !

And success!

Remastered DYRL mpeg is now 23.97 fps, 720x480.

Decapitation scene

49 frames

Same frame length as censored BD decapitation scene.

-

Media Info and Sony Vegas report the prepared DYRL mpeg as 23.97 fps. Womble Mpeg editor keeps mis-reporting the video as 29.97 fps and sneaks in some extra frames to make up for the increased frame rate!

In Womble, I can't find the project settings for editing to keep the video at 23.97 fps.  So, I'll have to use Sony Vegas for snapshots or just use Video Enhancer to up-convert the video.

*******

I looked around on the internet to see what is causing the 23.97 fps video to be recognized as 29.97 fps in Womble. 

Apparently, when Tmpeg encoder creates the m2v video, it puts 2:3 pulldown flags on the 23.97 fps video, so that the video will be easily used in NTSC 29.97 fps video projects.  The Tmpeg encoder does not allow me to remove the 2:3 pulldown flag option when encoding the video.  Womble recognizes the 2:3 pulldown flags in the 23.97 fps video and mis-reports the video as 29.97 fps. Thankfully, Sony Vegas is able to bypass the 2:3 pulldown flag when I set the video project as 23.97 fps.

I am re-encoding the DRYL mpegs again with Tmpeg encoder at 10 bit video and highest quality.  The default settings of Tmpeg encoder were 8 bit video at fastest encoding level.  And so, I will have to use Sony Vegas to keep all the video at 23.97 fps for editing.

*******

Sony Vegas is recognizing the mpeg videos in the editing time-line. 

Do I need to convert the mpeg videos into lossless lagarith .avi videos to keep consistency with the BD lossless lagarith avi videos?

Currently, I am getting the HD DYRL Region 2 DVD and the theatrical DYRL Region 2 DVD into shape for snapshots or up-conversion by using the ADM guide.   I think I have one too many DYRL DVD rips on my hard drives, which led to my confusion as to which mpeg was the properly prepared one for editing.

Here are some notes that are helpful in using the ADM guide.

Step 1: Decrypting DVDs


The Region 2 DVDs decrypted into m2v videos just fine. 
I will go back and decrypt the DVD audio once I get the hang
of this DVD video preparation.

Step 2: Fixing the GOP


Womble mpeg video editor does fix the decrypted m2v video from
2 hours 55 minutes back to the correct 1 hour 51 minutes.
But, the fps is still 29.97 at this point.

Step 3: IVTC to convert the 29.97 fps NTSC to 23.97 fps


1. If I install the latest DGIndex 1.5.8., then I need to copy the newest dgdecode.dll from DGIndex 1.5.8 over to the DGIndex in the Gordian Knot software package to get Gordian Knot to recognize the .d2v file.  Then I can load in the .d2v file from the 1st page of Gordian Knot on the bottom left corner.

2. I need to download and install Gordian Knot .35 and not AutoGK.

3. I edited the DYRL m2v AVS file to not use cropping or re-sizing because the m2v video is already 16:9 aspect ratio and 720x480 resolution.  So, cropping and re-sizing were disabled by putting a # in front of the AVS line.  Then I un-commented / removed the # from:
 
LoadPlugin("C:\PROGRA~1\GORDIA~1\AviSynthPlugins\d ecomb.dll")

Telecide(order=1,guide=1).Decimate()

Tmpeg only scales to NTSC / PAL DVD resolutions, so I would have to use a software like Video Enhancer with Super Resolution to do the job of up-sizing.

4.  When the AVS file is loaded into the Tmpeg Encoder 2.5 software, the
initial settings say "NTSC, 4:3, 704x480" for the aspect ratio even after I chose NTSC, 16:9. I loaded up the AVS file, ignored the initial aspect ratio and followed the guideline.

5. The preview video in the Tmpeg Encoder software makes the DRYL video letter-boxed, which has black bars on all four sides of the video. So, I might need to crop the up-converted mpeg video to match the BD video when replacing the censored scenes. 

The HD DYRL DVD mpeg is currently encoding as a DVD NTSC, Mpeg2, 720x480, 23.976 fps, CBR 8000 Kbps.


The newly encoded mpeg will be ready in 72 minutes then I can use this new mpeg to take snapshots or up-convert.

Next, I'll take a look at the number of snapshots on this new encoded mpeg through Womble and Sony Vegas to see if the mpeg scenes now match up to the BD scenes.

That's cool!  OZC does great work for subtitling, encoding and editing dubs.

-

Oh, I see what you mean.  Use the Clash of the Bionoids VHS audio and edit the BD DYRL around that.

-

I think that it would be better just to use the unedited DYRL Toho English dub for the Clash of the Bionoids edit and edit both the audio and video into the Clash of the Bionoids version.  I already have two FLAC audio files of the DYRL Toho English dub.  And the Toho English dub as one audio file: stereo, ac3, 192 kb/s.

-

First, I would like to get the original theatrical version of DYRL editing done and then I am likely to attempt the the Clash of the Bionoids edited version. 

-

I am not quite ready for any editing yet, since I am having difficulty getting the mpeg into the proper 23.97 fps, non-interlaced format.  I think I might need to apply IVTC in a specific way to the 29.97 fps DVD mpeg video.  I have to re-read ADM's guide and try again.

Not quite like that.

You can see the DYRL English ending credits on this DYRL Veoh video at 1 hour 51 minutes.

-

On my copy of the Super Space Fortress Macross VHS tape, the colour of the end credits appear to be white, but the Veoh video makes the credits appear blue.  I'll have to double check the colour of the end credits on the DYRL Toho dub LD to see which is the right colour.  

-

*****

And here is what the Clash of the Bionoids VHS English ending credits look like.

And here is what the DYRL BD ending credits look like.

Update:

The Super Space Fortress Toho English dub LD has white coloured credits.  I am not sure about what the fonts are for the credits though.  And then after the English credits there is some Japanese text that looks to be the copyright text.

-

On the Super Space Fortress Toho English dub VHS tape after the English credits is the 2nd half of the Angel's Paints music video from Flashback 2012 OVA!

-

-

The version 1.0 of the DYRL theatrical restoration would just have the Japanese ending credits without the Flashback 2012 video.

-

I found three different versions of the official DYRL English dub:

1. LD:

unedited version with no Flashback 2012 video and side-wiping English credits

115 minutes

2. VHS:

unedited version with no Flashback 2012 video and side-wiping English credits and a bonus feature after the end credits: the 2nd half of the Angel's Paints music video from the Flashback 2012 OVA

120 minutes 35 seconds

3. VHS:

heavily edited "The Clash of the Bionoids" version that deletes some of the violence, shortens the songs and has then has upwards scrolling English credits

92 minutes

Here is the progress so far on the DYRL restoration:

-

-

Video:

-

1. BD DYRL main movie, Theatrical beginning and end credits are now lagarith avi.

-

2. I must have missed a step when using the ADM MPEG guide on the remastered DYRL DVD because the final converted movie length is too long.  So, I'll try that again.   Then I will double check that the snapshots on the DVD match up to the BD DYRL avi.

There is a definite mismatch of DVD video with BD video even though both videos are 23.97 fps.  I did a quick counting of frames for the two censored scenes on Sony Vegas. 

BD Meltrandi Stomp   252 frames

BD Decapitation          49 frames

-

3. A complete set of time-coded, 1080p snapshots of both censored scenes from the remastered DYRL DVD have been taken through Womble.  That was a little tedious.  It looks like I will have to take a new set of snapshots once I get the remastered DYRL DVD working properly according to the ADM guide.

Meltrandi Stomp    314 snapshots  

Decapitation            59 snapshots  

-

4. Also, once I get the remastered DYRL MPEG working properly, then I can use Video Enhancer to up-convert the 480p video to 1080p video.  Then  the up-converted video can be compared to the Womble 1080p snapshots to see which best works as replacement scenes.

-

5. The colour-correction forum thread on Fanedit.org looks good for advice.

http://www.fanedit.org/forums/showthread.php?12633-Color-Correction-Help

-

-

Audio:

-

The BD DYRL has 5.1 DTS audio file with missing and edited audio cues and also a PCM stereo .wav!

Medianinfo software reveals that the DYRL PCM wav contains:

Bit rate mode : Constant
Bit rate : 1 536 Kbps
Channel(s) : 2 channels
Channel positions : Front: L R
Sampling rate : 48.0 KHz
Bit depth : 16 bits
Stream size : 1.23 GiB (100%)

I'll listen to this audio file and compare it to the theatrical DYRL Region 2 DVD audio to hear if the audio is the same.  Hopefully, this PCM wav file is not the same as the poorly done remastered DYRL stereo audio file that had a lot of audio click noises. 

I won't have time to work out a process to extract the DYRL LD audio for this week and the next because this is the last day of my holidays.

That's it for now.

As per Space Kaijuu’s suggestion, additional snapshots will be taken of the two altered scenes through Womble at 1080p to complete the whole scene.  Then those snapshots will be plugged into the DYRL lagarith encoded BD avi in Sony Vegas.  I’ll see what colour-correction can be applied at that point.

The remastered DYRL DVD will also be upconverted to 1080p with Video Enhancer to do some comparisons with the 1080p snapshots.

On the DYRL BD is a play option to play the movie more like the theatrical version. I almost forgot about this BD option.  Basically, on the DYRL BD are two additional short scenes:

1. Introduction scene: Toho logo that leads to black background with Zentradi space ship background noise - 30 seconds

2. Final scene: Scrolling upwards Japanese ending credits on a black background with Angel’s paints song - 4 minutes 13 seconds

So, I don’t need to extract the Japanese ending credits from the theatrical DYRL Region 2 DVD and use Video Enhancer to up-convert.


And I remembered two other DYRL projects from Macross World that might be useful for this project.

<span style=“text-decoration: underline;”>1.</span> Chad Dunham had borrowed an avisynth script to clean up the remastered DYRL Region 2 DVD video.

In 2008, S-47 Berkut was making progress on removing the hard-encoded Japanese subtitles from the remastered DYRL DVD video until the DYRL was expected to be released.  For his project, he was using the MSU lossless codec, Neat Video software for grain reduction and the TVPaint Animation software to clone / paint out the Japanese subtitles.

The last time I messaged him in 2012, he said he was still interested in completing the project, but was too busy.  And he hasn’t been seen on Macross World since that time.

I kept a copy of his brief video clip work. Maybe, someone would like to re-start this project?

Space Kaijuu,

you can check your pm for snapshot downloads.  Hopefully, you can figure out some ideas to make the best use of the snapshots.  Thank you!

I spent this morning taking snapshots of the DYRL BD and the remastered DYRL Region 2 DVD.  I was even able to make 1080p snapshots of the mpeg video to make a better comparison with the BD 1080p snapshots.

The non-blurred, up-scaled DVD snapshots could be swapped out for the blurred BD blurred video, but then there's colour-matching or chroma-matching?  Vegas Pro does have a Sony Color Match option for Video FX, but I'll have to find a guide to get the DVD snapshots to match the BD snapshots.  

Next, I am working on getting the theatrical DYRL Region 2 DVD into an editable mpeg video according to Adigitalman's guide.  Then I will use Video Enhancer for up-scaling the theatrical ending credits.

SUCCESS: Bit-Perfect Audio Capture!!!
Time

If I have a Macbook pro with Mavericks OS and firewire or USB or a Dell Laptop with Windows 8.1 OS and USB, which M-audio digital external box would I choose?

Otherwise, I have a Hauppauge HD PVR version 1 and an El Gato HD game capture box to get the audio from the LD player's digital audio demodulator.

A better question would be, "How can I tell that the ripped LD audio is bit-perfect?"

The two altered scenes of 1 second each are blurred.  I don't know how you could restore those scenes except by re-drawing the blurred out 48 frames at 1080p scale.  I know I can't draw at all well.

Would you like me to take snapshots of those BD blurred frames and the remastered DVD non-blurred frames and see what you can do?

And then there is the theatrical DYRL ending credits which are Japanese kanji scrolling upwards on a black background.  The theatrical DYRL DVD ending credits would need to be up-scaled as well.

The DYRL BD is now a lagarith encoded avi at 300 GB!

I still need to get the remastered and theatrical DYRL DVD video fixed according to Adigitalman's guideline before I up-scale the video with Video Enhancer software.

http://www.infognition.com/VideoEnhancer/

I already have the DYRL Toho English dub as a 2 Ch. ac3 at 192kb/s and as two FLAC files.  The DYRL subtitles are likely to be: English - Galaxy Network version 2 and Spanish - Skull Team Fan Subs.

That's all I've done for now.

Hi Buster D:

I will download the Smart Cutter trial and see if that works.  But, I need to re-rip the remastered and theatrical DYRL DVDs onto my hard drive.

How would you be up-scaling the remastered DYRL DVD video to 1080p?

I have Video Enhancer software with "Super Resolution" that can use the lagarith codec for an upscale.   It expands the DVD video to 10x the original file size.

And then the 2 seconds of DVD video would need to be color-matched to the BD video. 

For another audio option, I have the DYRL Drama LP as 4 mp4a audio files.  Would you know what software to get the audio stretched and sync'ed to the video? 

I haven't found that the Sound Forge audio software has a keyframe function for stretching the audio.  Cyberlink Powerdirector suite looks like it has time stretching with keyframes as an audio option.

The DYRL Toho English dub LD has large English (arial font?) credits on a black background with the first 1/2 of Mari Iijima's Angel's Paints song. The credits are revealed with a screen wipe from left to right.  This DYRL LD also has burned in Japanese subtitles.

I haven't looked at these video sources for long time and so I updated my previous post for the DYRL Victor Entertainment VHS.

The Super Space Fortress Macross VHS (Victor) is an official LD to VHS transfer from the DYRL Toho English dub LD. So, there is no differences in video or audio edits except for the drop in video quality.

The Clash of the Bionoids edited DYRL VHS has the English credits scrolling upwards.

I cannot remember for sure, but I think the Best Video DYRL VHS has English scrolling credits over a black background with the karaoke version of Mari Iijima's Angel's Paints song.

So, I just need to type up all the English end credit versions and keep that handy for the BD end credits.

The official DYRL 30th anniversary BD has the same style for end credits as the DYRL perfect edition and remastered DVD and LDs.

1st part of Macross: Flashback 2012 video + Japanese credits placed in certain spots + 1st half of Mari Iijima's Angel's Paints song and then the rest of the credits scrolling upwards on a black background + 2nd half of Mari Iijima's Angel's Paints song.

The theatrical DYRL DVD in the limited edition remastered DRYL DVD box set has just the Japanese credits scrolling upwards on a black background +  Angel's paints song.

As an alternate ending, I was thinking that the Flashback 2012 BD video could be used instead of the DRYL BD + the English credits placed in the same style as the DYRL BD.

The Shade:

Evan1975 is the guy who started this thread. I'm me. It took me quite a while to put this computer together not including the video / audio software I'm still re-installing.  And I still need to get some water cooling on the video card and do a lot of file back ups this week.  So, I'm just going to get myself as organized as possible for this week before I start on this fan edit.

Space Kaiju:

According to Macross World fans who live in Japan, any HD TV broadcasts of DYRL were from the censored DYRL bluray.  I'm having trouble finding that thread on the MW forum just now. 

The two seconds of up-scaled, non-censored DYRL video would be taken from the remastered HD DYRL DVD.  I have the limited edition DYRL DVD boxset that also includes the original, un-restored theatrical DYRL. The theatrical DYRL DVD would be good for the audio.  I also have the remastered Flashback 2012 DVD.

PS

I look forward to your completed Transformers movie restoration!

Space Hunter M:

I can't remember if the Toho English Dub DYRL LD has the English credits and the Flashback 2012 ending.  I'll check the DYRL Clash of the Bionoids VHS tapes, too.

Pablumatic:

Sometimes the DYRL BD is very sharp and detailed and sometimes the video is grainy and a little blurred.  I think the problem was the way that the movie was animated with layers of cel animations.   Here is one review of the DYRL BD that was quite critical.

Macross: Do You Remember Love? (Released)

Hi Poita and Matt:

I would be interested in a copy of the DYRL PCM audio file, too!  As well, could you walk me through on how to do a LD audio / video capture?  I have quite a few DYRL and Macross LDs on hand, but I'm not sure about the procedure. Thanks a lot!

I understand that Matt has been very busy with work and a big back log of other personal projects, so I would really like to get this project going.

I have the DYRL Limited Edition BD set that includes the Macross Flashback 2012 BD (DVD upscale) on hand.  And I have a few more DYRL audio tracks and fan subtitles that can be added onto the BD.

After 2+ months, my desktop computer is almost up to speed for HD video editing. Sony Vegas Pro 13 and Sound Forge 11 are installed on Windows 8.1 on an SSD, i7 4.5 GHz, 32 GB Ram and a 4 TB thunderbolt external hard drive. 

I just need to do some file back ups and get my GTX 580 3GB Classified video card water cooled, which will take me most of this week to do.  I'm likely to need some video editing, sound editing, BD authoring, BD cover art advice for this fan edit, since I have not done an HD fan edit before. 

I have been looking at these fanedit.org threads in preparation for this fan edit.

New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh - Preservation Project (* unfinished - lots of info *)
Time

The Gargoyles Season 2 Part 2 DVD set is being sold through the Disney website as an exclusive.  Disney has also sold Ducktales The movie DVD as a Disney Fan Club exclusive.  I wish they would get around to finishing the Ducktales DVDs, too. I went through ebay to get the Ducktales Movie DVD before I knew any of this exclusive DVD nonsense.

It's been so long since I've seen any of the Winnie the Pooh TV shows that I can't quite remember them.  I have always enjoyed the original Disney adaptations.  Thanks for picking up where Disney is dropping the ball!

I sure would like to see a BD 50 of the theatrical DYRL?, too !

The audio tracks could include:

1. DVD theatrical Japanese remastered stereo audio

2. LP DYRL? drama album Japanese stereo audio

3. BD Japanese 5.1 audio

4. BD edited Japanese 5.1 audio with the two songs mixed back in

5. LD Toho English dub stereo audio

6. DVD DYRL? Spanish dub stereo audio

7. CD DYRL? music stereo audio

Galaxy Network English subtitles would be included.

The Dark Heroes Productions English dub audio cannot be used without permission from that dub group out of respect for their work.  But, you can watch it on youtube.

I am going to visit my mom for the next 2 1/2 weeks, so I'll be away from my computer for that time. And then when I get back, I have fan edit I will be working on.  So, a few months are likely to pass before I get started on a Theartrical DYRL? BD restoration project.  Maybe, I can just make some pre-production plans until I find the time for the project.

Hi Matt_Stevens:

I have been looking into getting the DYRL? BD edited, too.

Here are all the changes that I have been able to find on the DYRL? BD.

1. An unnecessary opening title card about  the back story of the movie.  The back story was already explained in the movie by one of the main characters, Lynn Minmay.

00:00:12 - 00:00:27 Title Card (BD dyrl, 15 seconds)

2. Two censored 1 second gore scenes.
a. Milia's Queadluun-rau mecha crushing the head
of Zentradi soldier
00:44:45 - 00:44:46 (BD dyrl)
00:44:44 - 00:44:45 (remastered DVD dyrl, 1 second)

b. During the ending battle aboard the Macross fortress, one of the civilians is decapitated.
01:39:50 - 01:39:51 (BD dyrl)
01:39:44 - 01:39:45 (remastered DVD dyrl, 1 second)

3. Two music changes have been done for the new 5.1 audio on the DYRL? BD:

a. At the moment when Lynn Minmay's commits herself to singing the DYRL? song, the background music of  "eternal love" or "abareru kokoru" has been removed.
01:37:07 - 01:37:51 (BD dyrl, song is missing)
01:35:27 - 01:36:11 (remastered DVD dyrl stereo, 44 seconds)

 photo vlcsnap-2013-04-30-18h19m37s40.png

b. When Lynn Minmay raises up her arm to show Misa Hayase that the DYRL? lyrics translated Misa has helped to win the war, the DYRL? song piano reprise has been removed.
01:48:22 - 01:48:44 (BD DYRL, song is missing)
01:48:14 - 01:48:35 (remastered DVD dyrl, 20 seconds)

STAR WARS: EP V &quot;REVISITED EDITION&quot;<strong>ADYWAN</strong> - <strong>AVAILABLE NOW</strong>
Time

I seem to remember that Adywan was hoping to buy the Star Wars: Blueprints book by Rinzler, but it was too expensive.

I saw on Amazon.com that the SW:Blueprints book is being re-issued on April 2/13 for only $100. I hope that it's not an early April Fool's joke.

http://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/1611097967/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A3DWYIK6Y9EEQB

I put in my pre-order.
