Titanic UK HDTV broadcast (pre 2012 changes)
Time

Okay, so I just finished downloading the same file. I want to convert it to a blu ray-compliant file but there’s just one thing I need to know. Is it interlaced or progressive? The mediainfo output says Progressive but you can’t always trust that. By playing it back in WMP and VLC it does appear to be in fact Progressive.

If someone that knows more than me about such things could help out it would be much appreciated. Also, I’m planning on upping the converted one to the spleen. Here’s the mediainfo:

Yeah, I saw that listed on the Spleen. Have you watched it and if so, what’s your verdict? Do you prefer the fan edit or the theatrical?

I did download the Russian version of “Titanic” listed above and it is definitely the older version and appears to be complete.

It’s on a Russian site and I think it has Russian audio as well as English. That definitely doesn’t mean it’s a “Russian version”, it could be from the UK, etc;,. I’ve been downloading from Rutracker long enough to know that.

and the 21st Century Fox opening instead of the Paramount one we get here in the USA.

Interesting, I didn’t know that. Almost everything on Rutracker has several Russian audio first and than one or two English audio. Some smaller files are only Russian audio.

Thanks, found it with the upload date that you included. 😃

Looks very good indeed. My C4 HDTV recording clocks in at 9.15 GB and that includes the commercial breaks whilst this one is 25.07 GB and commercial free so there’s no contest. The running time is listed as 03:06:49 and the official theatrical is 3hrs 15m. The credits have probably been time compressed or removed.

Perhaps someone who has downloaded it can confirm?

T1
T2
T3
T4
T5

The answer is: the time difference is from the fact that it is 25fps. (It says on the page)

Amadeus - Theatrical Cut Restoration 1080p (V2)
Time

Hey Jimbotron,

I noticed that some people on your Amadeus thread were wanting a smaller 720p version of your edit. I know some folks on myspleen tend to want the same sometimes. I was thinking of maybe doing this but only if I got your permission again. I usually use the program Ripbot264 to make high quality re-encodes. Anyway, if it’s okay with you I might upload a 720p version to myspleen.

Thanks,
Stretch

Superman I-III extended TV cuts: Where have the preservations gone?
Time

ger-el said:

The KCOP or Salkind International Cut that was being worked on by some dedicated fans has been completed. It is the longest cut of Superman The Movie. It clocks in at 188 minutes. The clean up is good. It’s presented in full frame with mono audio as it was originally presented on its TV airings. It contains footage not found on any official release. Check out Caped Wonder for more information. Really great for any other Superman fans out there.

Where on Caped Wonder?

Does any of you know where can i get this version? Thank you!!!

The Spleen. I already have it. Of course I don’t own the Indiana Jones movies on DVD anymore. Just the Blu-rays as everyone should. Except there are some bonus features which weren’t fully carried over to the BDs.

It’s also on Usenet.

Star Wars saga - Extra Extended Edition (1080p)
Time

^…^ said:

Lost the chance to buy the needed brand new used desktop PC to advance with the job… also, as I usually do, I left this behind to refresh my mind, and meanwhile I learned new techniques that could probably be useful for this project as well.

Now I’m looking for another PC, powerful enough but relatively cheap at the same time.

“brand new used”

oxymoron, maybe?

Harmy's STAR WARS Despecialized Edition HD - V2.7 MKV IS OUT NOW
Time

solkap said:

Hello all. I’ve asked about different versions of the Despecialized Editions a few times before. Now I have a possibly silly question. Has anyone made an effort to preserve copies of the DE that are now obsolete?

The reason I ask is because I’m so impressed by all work you are doing, it seems like kind of a shame to scrap the earlier versions. They would show the progress you’ve all made in your work over the years.

I think I would even be interested in saving, in addition to the current versions, sets of the rars from respective three versions of SW 1.0, 2.0, ESB 1.0, & ROTJ 1.0 to data DVD-DL sets just for preservation’s sake. However, I don’t want to use torrents because of the security risks they involve.

If anyone could point me towards a source of links to those four older versions that doesn’t involve torrents that would be awesome!

And even if not, thanks again for all your hard work! 😃

They’re all on the spleen and there aren’t any risks in downloading them from there.
