Aladdin 35mm (Released)
Time

Hi. Was a new remix of the censored ouverture song done recently (with the censored lines back in) ? I’m asking because the difference between the audio on the movie (either from the LD, Blu-ray, etc) and the original soundtrack cd is very jarring (as explained earlier). Anyone attempted to do a better bob at that ?

Thanks to confirm if there’s an update.

Ah, ok. Figures. When you mention the DVD, are you talking about the british/region 2 one ? There was a rumor that this one retained some of the Deems Taylor’s speaches (which meens, it must have been made with a master from the LD, if true). Also, about the mags, I think there are some surviving and Poita did found one a some point. if we’re lucky, maybe someone else may have this.

The rumors are false. There is no Deems on anything newer than laserdisc.

He’s talking about the missing audio on the Pastoral Symphony. About 5 second from the DVD was used to patch it up. Read the write up for full info: https://originaltrilogy.com/topic/fantasia-special-edition-laserdisc-released/id/65087/page/2#1407146

Ah, ok. Thanks

Hello all. Just saw the “restaured and uncensored” version you did of the movie. Good job. Although, I have two things to poind out that stick out a little bit and could be corrected in the future:

1- The HD scan of the censored parts. Any chance to clean it it up a little bit ? It’s marred with both vertical lines and spots that could probably cleaned up alittle bit. Also, the images look a bit darker than the ones coming from the LD/Early DVD (I don’t think Blu-ray image was used on this, right ?)

2- The audio reconstruction. The sound is good, but seems very weak at times (almost too low). Also, the different sources do stick out a bit on occasion (differend hissings and lack of it). Any chance to rework it a bit more so the changes become seamless ?

Otherwise, very good job and thanks to everyone involved.

For the audio, there are three sources used:

  • The audio on the laserdisc itself (a dolby surround encoding)
  • The DVD stereo
  • The 1961 vinyl for mono
    As you can imagine, we’re all over the place with eras of sound quality. The 1990 CD that was released with the LD/VHS unfortunately is edited the same as the movie, meaning we have no 1990-era audio to fix the deleted sections. The DVD is the second closest, but it is not mixed in Dolby Surround, meaning the spatial effects thin out and weaken during those ~5 seconds. The mono dub spots are just weak overall, what would be ideal is a magnetic copy of the mono soundtrack. I’m sure someone is in possession of one with the other Fantasia projections going on. This would eliminate both the hissing and scratching artefacts and provide better EQ (the vinyl copy is mixed very low and hardly has any bass). Of course, you could also just process everything to try to get as close to the LD audio as possible, which would be the quickest fix.

Ah, ok. Figures. When you mention the DVD, are you talking about the british/region 2 one ?

I see, it make sense since most of the other deleted scene were just reframed on the Blu-ray except for that particular part. Thanks for the heads up, I didn’t realize while doing it since the 35mm scan seem to jump some section. And by the way, sorry, I didn’t mean to try and steal you guy’s thunder on this, it really happened totally by coincidence, I decided to do this maybe 2-3 weeks ago and at that time there was just a bunch of conversations and threads that has been there for a long time without anything being released, so I went ahead and did the work and only realized the day I was trying to release it that Class316 and you had released your version a few days prior.

I’m sure it should be ok. Worst case scenario, You all can do a 2.0 version and released soon.

Thanks to keep us posted.

@Class316: Have you been able to find a better audio source for the 3 little pigs ?

I have not revisited this since this post.

As far as a better source, The only thing I think about, I believe there’s a soundtrack CD with the original lyrics. This would be the only thing I can think of as far as a better source.

Do you have the full CD ? If so, can you share it here, please ?

Are there any communities or individuals that share Disney LD rips? I made a few rudimentary ones with my DVD recorder so I could add them onto my Plex Server.

There doesn’t seem to be much on the spleen, besides Lion King.

If you have the japanese one with the 3 little pigs uncensored (both image and audio) I’m a sure taker.

Thanks to let us know

Hi. Happy new year. I’ll be interested to see your work (so far) on Frankenstein, if possible.

Are you planning to keep working on it (audio) ? If so, what else do you want do you want to work on it ?

I would really like to get the image re-worked (or re-scanned, at this point) on both Frank and Bride.

Walt Disney Classics - 4K (donations sought) (several WIPs)

@RU.08: What about Snow White ? How many copies do you have access to and which issue version it is/are they ? Just remember The 1960 re-issue version (and all the others after this one) do cut and change some things that were there before, including some animated effects and credits). All the prints with the RKO logo should be the original version as seen in it’s original release.

Boomerang streaming captures
Time

Hi. I’m looking for a way to capture successfully videos from the Boomerang streaming website. I tried both ReplayMedia Catcher and Internet download Manager unsuccessfully, Does anybody here know how to do this ?

Here’s a link for exemple: https://watch.boomerang.com/watch/1/1 (be careful, only accessible from the USA only. I had to use a VPN to access it).

Thanks to answer
