20,000 leagues under the sea (disney version) restoration by crapple
Time

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.

Sample:

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.

Recommended Editions of Disney Animated (and Partially Animated) Features

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.

Duck, You Sucker (1971)- Fixing the mono mix (V1.5 Finished)
Time

Got it.

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.
