Dawn Of The Dead Ultimate Edition Volume 2-UPDATE Discs 1-4 COMPLETE
Time

Hi Everyone,

So I’m going to have a go at Version 3 of this. Main idea is to resync the Japanese Suspiria audio track to a crisp blu ray video and possibly do away with the censorship pausing, I’ll know more once I eventually start work on it.

Also planning on doing the same with the other commentary tracks.

I’ll port over all of the extras from Version 2 and redo all the menus so they are nice looking blu ray style menus.

Question to you all is - is there anything significant missing from Version 2 that you would like to see in Version 3? I’d like to avoid including extras that are available on official versions.

One idea I had is someone has transferred the German Super 8 version and synced an English soundtrack to it:

https://www.dawnofthedead.co.uk/item/dawn-of-the-dead-zombie-ufa-super-8mm-reels/

I’d like to include that, would be great if I could get hold of the full resolution version prior to youtube compression but if not I’ll just rip it from youtube.

Any suggestions welcome. Just a note on timescale, instead of taking on one project and getting it done before moving onto the next, my style is to take on 10 projects at the same time and then never get any of them done! So I don’t know exactly when I’ll get this done, but I will 100% do it, it’s just getting the time.

Thanks

If source is 1080p i.e. current shorts or promos not on disc, there should be a menu for BD25 instead of data files. Especially the ALIEN 40th Anniversary shorts.

Resolution doesn’t matter. There is no correlation between resolution and the ability to have menus. For that matter, you could have menus for the older files as well.

Then why not make menus for the older files? Re-encode them as AVC for BD25, no more archaic MPEG2 for DVD. No DVD releases whatsoever. Time to move on from that format.
If there’s going to be random data discs for the older files on BD25, why not use HEVC/H.265 with MKV? Better compression. No need for HDR10. IDGAF if it won’t play on Apple.

EDIT: This is only for those features not on ALIEN Covenant or any other disc. Easier to have 1080p/24 HD content to receive menus on BD25s compared to NTSC or PAL. So, all NTSC files to have its own BD25 with zero menus and the same for PAL files for BD25? 1080/24p with menus as its own Archival disc, NTSC as its own Archival disc, and finally PAL as its own Archival disc.
I can dig it.

Then do it yourself. I prefer everything in its original frame rate with as little re-encoding as possible

Agreed. My rule of thumb is never re-encode video unless you absolutely have to. I cannot see any benefits to converting MPEG2 SD footage to H264, it will look worse due to the conversion. I’ve read before that MPEG2 produces slightly better quality over H264 when using SD footage. If it’s not broke don’t fix it.

However the mix of PAL and NTSC is an issue particularly for North American users, as 25 FPS is not a required blu ray standard in North America. I did a project recently where all but one of the special features were NTSC and one was PAL. It was a choice of having a disc that can’t be fully played in most of North America or converting that one video to NTSC - I chose the latter but it’s not a good situation to be in.

Anyone Know Code101?
Time

Hi Everyone,

Bit of a strange request but does anyone have contact details or know a user on here called Code101?

I've sent them a PM but they haven't logged on in over a year so it's doubtful they'll see it.

I'm not a stalker or anything but they mentioned having a workprint of Predator 2 in an old post and I'd really like to get in touch with them to see if they still have it.

Many thanks

Well I actually spent ages trying to do just that but it doesn't seem to let me. When I pasted the text in it was nicely formatted but when I posted it, all the text got blocked together. I've tried advanced edit, I set the formatting, returned down after each title, had it all looking nice and as soon as I have edit post it when back to being blocked together again?

 

So apologies but it is not through lack of trying!

 

Here is my trading site where the list is much easier to read http://www.freewebs.com/workprints/wanted.htm

 

Many thanks
