Audacity is able to edit dts files, and show them as wave forms.
The colors look very good, but the image seems a tad too bright and washed out, especially in the 1st picture.
Not yet, but as soon as you release your projects, it will be edited accordingly.
Any chance for the link as well?
May I ask if you could share the 1080p/i file on myspleen or other such place?
I can only find the 720p version, and I recall you posting a sample image, and yours has better detail.
I'm also expecting T2 and True Lies.
Would love an invite if this is to be the home of your releases.
I read Russian and I have an account on rutracker.
I should say that while the 1080i file has a pretty low bit rate (9 MBPS) and the Disney logo covers a substantial part of the image, even after cropping, it's still the best looking version.
There is also a 720p Web-DL version, which I supposed could be used to paint over the logo and supply a proper AC3 at the correct frame rate.
Well, there are exceptions.
I believe the CAPS files needed alterations before/during the transfer to film, as evident with the light, but noticeable changes in The Lion King, and the massive changes to colors and contrast in Beauty And The Beast.
The makers of BATB said that the look of the original version was because of a faulty transfer problem, which sounds like BS, because I can't imagine them in 1991, seeing the "faulty" transfer and saying "Oh, well, let's release it anyway and wait almost 2 decades to fix it"...
A digital master made using a film print for color correction should do, as those films were meant for 35mm screenings, but that was only the final phase of a completely digital rendering process.
Films made before 1990 (Up to and including The Little Mermaid) were indeed finished on film, so those should have grain.
I think using LD's to determine color schemes for older films is a miscalculation. Especially when they were filmed in Technicolor, when the potential for mistakes in prints was huge.
V1.5 is ready.
The change to the last line is a lot less jarring, but still noticeable, because of the hiss that accompanies the LD audio.
However, being the original mix with the original sound effect, it merges better with the file as a whole.
It should be noted that the new BD from MGM doesn't have the original mono, even in lossy AC3. The reviews are yet to be out, even though the disc itself has been released a few days ago, which is not a good sign.
Where did the DD 2.0 come from?
Is it the compressed PCM from the LD?
It's the 251 minute cut, same as the Italian BD.
It is missing the further 18 minutes needed for the final cut that weren't incorporated because of issues with rights that are being worked on by the film foundation.
So WB can't really call it a Directors cut, but they still do.
Looks like October will be chock full of recycled transfers.
The 229 minutes version of Once Upon a Time in America, the 75th anniversary Blu ray of Gone With The Wind, and now this...
Updated to incorporate the new BD of OUATIA.
That is the only thing I need to make for a V2.
Yes, there definitely is an issue with the musical cues on the laserdisc.
Well, the LD mono is very problematic as the film was cut, the musical cues were wrong and some lines were missing.
Oh god, mea culpa...of course, without...
Although there shouldn't be much grain to be had, the source being 70mm, and they have scanned the ON.
I'm still holding to the hope that it's the same master, only without DNR.
Technically, the first BD was Platinum, way back in 2006.
@jolennon, how do you know it's the same disc? have you gotten your copy earlier?
Couldn't Flac be used in the same manner to save space?
At this size, the bitrate should float at around 20 MBPS, which is pretty respectable.
Actually, not only is the Mary Poppins BD not badly cropped like the DVD, it also doesn't suffer from DNR and the color is much more correct and pleasing.
It's definitely a new master.
I have this one, so if you'd like a link, you can PM me.
The 2nd regrade looks a bit too bright and pale to my eyes, perhaps the brightness could be toned down just a bit.
Note that the black borders are brightened up too.
