The Spongebob Squarepants Movie - 35mm Re Creation (a WIP)
Time

I decided to do my own grain/color edit of frame @ianoliva posted.

Thanks to the new availability of a CAM rip and theatrical trailer scans provided by Notelu and bslatky respectively, I’ve been able to more concretely approximate how this thing looked on a print:




The colors still need to be tweaked for accuracy, but all in all this gels with how I remember the theatrical presentation.

Personally the blanket blue just looks wrong to me, so I only added some. But that is my opinion.

Update on my version: I tweaked the colors a little bit, and I also added grain using the Vegas “Film Effects” plugin. I also found a clip in the film’s OAR, 1.85:1, and it appears to have more picture on the Blu-ray; the BD is open matte, so I matted my version to 1.85:1.

I’d pull back the grain a bit, otherwise looks good.

Updated the thread for version 2.2.

hmmm…
How are we supposed to find this .mkv movie file?
OR is this only for you, and no one else?
P.S. PLEASE share us the audio file(s) of the original mono mix.

It’s available at another famous forum for the star wars trilogy. I don’t have the mono mix I could share, and the current one I have I can’t share until I finish v3.0 of my project which is on hold. No need to be so pushy btw, that’s not a way to get anything done.

Oh, I’m sorry.
Where can I find this forum, and how do I get a copy of the audio file(s) from them?

Google is your friend for both of those things! I’m not sure if I should say directly where to get it.

Help Wanted: 'Anne of Green Gables' (1985) Bluray image restoration project
Time

ykarus1974 said:

Hello friends!

This is my very first post 😃

I was curious if anyone would be interesting in helping me (no money needed - just some constructive comments would suffice).

I am a huge fan of the Anne of Green Gables series (1985).

I own the DVDs released back in 2001, original full screen edition (it was made for TV).

Sullivan Entertainment released the Bluray version a few years back, but Alas…

The framing looks good, but its obvious that it’s cropped from its original 1.33:1 presentation (I read somewhere that the video is a scan of the original negative, then cropped to fit our widescreen screens). It seems the original negative is somewhere between full screen and widescreen, because upon comparing the TV version and the Bluray version, the Bluray version has more information on the left and right sides of the image, but crops a bit on top and bottom).

That part is not too bad… The worse is that in this bluray presentation, the image is very dark and muted in contrast. Quoting a comment found online : “Outside daylight scenes look like they were filmed under twilight”. To my observation, it looks like they scanned the negatives and never bothered adjusting anything before realeasing it.

This is why I thought about this forum 😃

This is my plan : I would like to adjust the video to its intended beauty. The scenery is absolutely incredible, and it’s a shame the bluray is so poor in quality. I’ve never done this kind of project before, but I have a bit of knowledge with Adobe Premiere Pro and I found lots of tutorials on Youtube.

Would anyone be interested in helping me ? I would like to post some screen captures and you could tell me what you think of the quality. I hope I am not biting more than I can chew but I want to give it a try.

How about this first steps :

  1. Get an uncompressed copy of the Bluray using MakeMKV
  2. It seem Adobe Premiere Pro has trouble using MKV files, so I would convert the resulting mkv to MT2S file… this would be the file I would use in Adobe Premiere Pro.

any thoughts?

Ykarus1974.

I recommend converting the MKV container into a MP4 container using FFMPEG.

Here’s the code I would use: ffmpeg -i “input.mkv” -codec copy “output.mp4”

That should copy everything over? (I don’t think subtitles will) But I would keep the original MKV just in case.

My 4K AI processed/upscale of Harmy's Star Wars Despecialized 2.7 (Released)

It’s still strange to me that he’s redoing the entire thing to bump it up from 576p to 720p in an era when 2160p sources are available.

To my understanding, it comes down to resources and rendering times. He does alot of modification to those films, and they take forever to render even just at 720p. 2160p would be just insane.

That sounds cool, any idea for the release date?

Tomorrownaut said:

I saw this movie 7 times theatrically. The preview of v3.1 looks much closer to what I remember.

Spookyking said:

NICE! Can’t wait to see the improvements of this latest version.

Version 3.2 is now available! It can be found in the same spot version 2.3 could.

The Shining - Mono Mix - for anyone who wants it (in English or Russian) (Released)
Time

While working on a project for The Shining that may never see the light of day, I knew it would be important to have the mono mix. I sadly don’t have access to the laserdisc, so I ripped the AC3 track in English and Russian from the 1999 NTSC DVD and sync’d them to the new Blu-ray. Feel free to message for a link.

Edit: Please say which language, English or Russian, you want so there is no confusion. Thank you!

I meant post it in the Projects section of the fanres forum. The guys over there are really supportive of new projects like yours and I’m sure you’d have no trouble getting the audio you need.

Ah, thank you for the suggestion. I have no idea why it didn’t come to me before. Hopefully I can get what I need, I’d love to see a finished version of this amazing movie.

Why not post your project in the Projects section of the forum? I’m sure members there will gladly share the mono audio track with you.

I didn’t realize that I had posted it under the wrong section. https://originaltrilogy.com/topic/The-Shining-1980-Zemastered-Edition/id/70150 I reposted it in the right one. Thank you for letting me know.
