Better add Fantasia to this lot, Editroid.
You forgot Fantasia
Anybody interested by this ? Coul be interesting to do a proper Nlu-ray out of it...
Shame. I hope an old 35mm copy of the film (struck before the 1960s) turns out on ebay (with the Pastoral intact) or somewhere else so we can get it, finaly.
Much better than the BR and the Special Ed. DVD, at least. The colour aren't too much pumped, the contrast is ok, and the gamma doesn't choke the color timing.
When the work on this one (scanning) begins, please let us all know.
Hi, Poita. Could you please reduce the photo a little so we can see it in it's full frame ? BTW, Nice shot.
For TJB, I gess it was remasteres during the 1990's to fit with 16x9 TV screens, but seriously, I don't know, maybe it was even before that. The only thing we know, the frame ratio has been cut for all it's home video releases, as shown earlyer.
Hi, Jolemon, thanks for the links, but one of them is already a goner and the other lack information that the seller is not willing to or can't give (and I think that some of reels contains faded films). Keep both eyes open, thought, we all scavenge for good prints, as you can see, and also for good deals.
Does anybody here have a print (35mm or 16mm) of TJB ? Might be a nice addition on our "to do" list.
There is a 1080i hdtv version listed on TehParadox but the only screen shot isn't from an animated scene. I have no idea what the quality is and it's about all I can find.
Dr M, the 1080i hdtv version you mentioned uses exactly the same master for the actual blu-ray. I just checked. I will post later some screen caps of it and also some of the gold collection dvd edition .
Take your time. Your work is always appreciated.
Indeed, thank you very much Molly.
cms382, which version do you have in LD ?
There should be a mkv version of the older LD too D: at least while there isn't any 35mm restoration
True. Molly did have one once made out of her own LD. You can always ask her if she still have a copy.
Which one is the LD, please ?
Hi, does TJB have a HD version with it's full image like SITS ? That might be more interesting to watch, actually.
Yes, this one for a starter
Hello jade88. Which version of the LD do you have of Fantasia ?
Any news from Poita ? Unless I missed some things here or on AMPS, there wasn't much news from him at all lately, aside of the colour comprehention work.
_,,,^..^,,,_ You got a PM. PLease answer it as soon as possible before it's too late.
Hi, _,,,^..^,,,_ (Andrea, I think ?). Did you managed to get the original french LD (this one: http://www.lddb.com/laserdisc/32562/22/1325/Belle-et-la-b%C3%AAte-La-%281991%29) ? This one contains the original (theatrical) french dub. Now today, what pass for this on dvd and BR is shortened version, with new voice actors, re-made for the the special edition released nearly 10 years later.
Do you think you can track down a copy of this LD & recuperate the audio for preservation & use in your project ?
Thanks to let me know
Hello team. Are you willing to take special requests for LD capture job on some LD titles ?
Personally, I don't have a LD player (can't afford one at the moment) neither LD titles yet (figures). But I'm interested in some projects on my own that require access to LDs. Any other home video supports (BDV, BR, vhs) are not a problem. So I was wondering if any of you would be willing to give me a hand at this ?
Thanks to answer
Some pieces will match, more or less, of course, but with the framerate differences, it will still be a problem. But also, remember the IK soundtrack was probably not recorded live for the cd. I know that the frame fate of the BR is at 24 (23.976), so, try to see if there is a way to get the original stream unconverted (use tsmuxer for that as a m2ts file) and open it in vegas. See if there's a difference with the IK soundtrack. I'm sur a great deal of your trouble will be solved. One more thing, be carefull with the noise reduction with the vhs sound, if you over do it, it'll be crappy, but the vhs noise ca be distracting if you try to match it with the music. That's why I recommand to get the LD collector's edition and it's bonuses.
Hi. Before entering into a thorough examination of your video, I want to let you know that your final video is at 30 fps. Is it the same for your source video ? If yes, you might want it to be converted it back to 24 fps instead since the IK score might be synchronized to this framerate, which would explain why you are having a hard time for the synchronisation, unless it's a reconversion from Vimeo, which might compromise the data taken with a timecode (I have downloaded the video and opened it in Adobe Premiere in order to provide more precisions for the examination, that's how I found out).
Hi. If you want to do the dual soundtrack, you have this into acount:
Both sound tracks have different cues in different places especially if they were recorded live. If you try to synchronyse both sound together, some will end up with messed up pitches (too slow and too fast) which wiil show in the final piece. That's why I was suggesting to do both sound separately on two different channel and just try to edit a bit the image.
What app do you use to edit ?
Begin with the smaller stuff while synchronizing (Deems Taylor' s narations, for exemple).
That's it for today. Let me know if there's anything else.
By the way, I checked you new vimeos and they look gread. Good work.
