Captain Marvel, hoping to make carol a bit more likeable for those who hate her. (WIP)
Time

Thanks, It’s rendered and I’ll send you a link out now ^_^

Alas, I have identified a problem with this already. There was an issue with framerates due to my carelessness. it’s present in a couple of the added scenes that I transferred from the special features.
So that’s the first thing on my list of fixes. XD

Hey all!
thank you for your input so far. I have arrived at a milestone. I have finished doing all the cuts and edits I had in mind.

I am now rendering a movie file out and pending feedback, I have completed this project! ^_^

I am now putting out a request, if anyone here wants to take a look at my work and give me feedback, I would very much appreciate it!

this is the problem with intellectual property law. I am a content creator and I certainly support people being protected and compensated for what they produce, but it is all imbalanced in such a way it is difficult for fan creations, adaptations, and archival etc.
I mean if a film has been shown on TV 100s of times, I think that’s enough. if these versions are not actually being sold by the IP holders, then why shouldn’t they be made available through other means? it’s all wrong.

there’s lots of films i’s love to see the original print of, but I’d hate to ask for them because i might ask for too much and I’m also not great at one to one social interactions.

thanks very much, that’s really helpful. I’m not super practiced with editing so that helps me confidence a bit.
I’ll see if I can adjust the levels a bit. I wonder if there’s a danger of the original music becoming audible though. I removed it from all the silent bits, but some of the sound effects still have it and i’m not sure how to remove.

Captain Marvel really hamfisted the “girl-power” thing in to the point where Carol Danvers was pretty annoying at several points in the film.

yes, ham fisted is a good way to describe it. I want to keep in the girl power as an underlying theme, but just tone it down a bit. or maybe a lot. we’ll see how it goes XD

I had no problem with her being arrogant and condescending. I also had no problems with Strange and Stark being arrogant and condescending. The problem I had was the latter two were allowed to also be funny whereas Danvers wasn’t. Though that’s probably because she spent most of the film not knowing who she was.

That’s a good point. the comedy does tend to soften the arrogance quite a bit.

Ok, thanks ^_^

I’ve added the link to my edit of the music. I’ll also add it here - https://mega.nz/file/Cm4RlACL#kvtZ1-x_IBUh19CRnC-OOp4NtTg25laJZZKbBzyZ6D8
I would welcome any and all feedback!

oh… yes I’m aware of the strange glitch at the start before the music begins. I’m not sure what caused that, probably a misalignment i can iron out later. This clip is more to demonstrate the audio work I did.

i particularly disliked captain marvel as did many people. for me, carol came across as arrogant and condescending, particularly to men. this anti man feeling also extended beyond carol and in my opinion the worst part of the film where “I’m just a girl” started playing. As a woman, I didn’t find any of this particularly empowering as I think it was meant to be.
I wondered if these things were the main reason why this film feels bad to me so i have been taking another look and considering how the film would work with some alterations.

the first thing I have done is to try and remove that song and replace it with something i felt fit the theme better. I decided on “Ready to go” by Republica.
I have this sequence already done and rendered out.
If anyone is interested in taking a look and giving any feedback, I’d be happy to hear your thoughts.

Here is the clip to what I have done with the music. (it’s about 1 - 2 mins) https://mega.nz/file/Cm4RlACL#kvtZ1-x_IBUh19CRnC-OOp4NtTg25laJZZKbBzyZ6D8

Is that version actually available though? To normal people who cant get membership to those private trackers. If it is then cool but I made this specifically because I couldnt find it after searching for ages.

Btw, all those people asking if this is still available, it might help if you send me a message and actually ask for it. Why should I chase after you to give you a link?

is there? thanks 😃
Perhaps that is what I saw because I live in the UK.
Whatever the case, what I have done has made the frame size and aspect consistent, so it can be cropped in mediaplayer automatically with no real difficulty.
That was the biggest issue with the open matte, the sfx shots just didn’t match the non sfx shots at all and there were black bars at the side of all the non sfx shots.
it might have made more sense for the original encoder of that file to add black bars on the top and bottom of the sfx shots and render out at a larger than 1080p file… but oh well.

Hi all.

I spent such a long time trying to obtain Jurassic Park 35 mm and I managed to get the open matte version, but I just wanted the experience I first got when I went to the cinema back in 1993.
So I have taken the time to crop the non sfx scenes to bring it closer to the experience that I wanted and I’ve also done some re-encoding to bring the file size down. ( the sfx scenes were originally mastered in 16:9 )

The result of cropping those images made the actual height of then more closer to 720p but the end result actually looks pretty good and I can’t tell myself, so I kept the file at 1080p.

I’ve encoded in hevc and file size is around 11GB.
I’ve decided to give links to people who own the bluray would like to see it as the director originally intended.

Nice of you to offer, but I started this as a personal project for free, which it will always be. So no money offers are necessary. However I am always open to tips and ideas on how to improve things.

As for the actual episodes, I will PM you with the links soon.

Thank you so much 😃
I’m not sure if any tips I might have will be helpful, but one thing I was thinking while looking through the thread, was a possible way to train a neural network. if you were to feed it the new HD thing they released recently on amazon… the space battle, I can’t recall exactly what it was… and if you feed it the SD version, then the neural net might be able to learn how to do some good upscale work based on that?

You guys have all probably already thought of that though or even using that very process and I just don’t understand it well enough XD

edit: I taught myself something and realised you are using the AI upscaling thing I was thinking of.
I was wondering though… if my other thought was at all useful … using the hd versions of TNG alongside the SD versions of that, to help teach the AI how to upscale star trek images better? again, I’m probably just repeating what has already been said.

Hi, I really love what you’re doing. I’d love a hd version of both these star trek series.
I’d like to contribute but I don’t have a decent enough computer. I only have a i5 gtx960 and a tiny SSD for gaming.
I have contributed financially to some other projects though and would be happy to add something into the pot if needed. I’d also be happy to help out in some other ways if I am able 😃

This looks amazing! Have you considered trying Dr. Dre’s color match? I’m using it on a fan reconstruction, and it replicates it perfectly.

Thank you 😃
Hmm, I have not heard of that one. I have been using resolve for a while. Not very good at it to be honest, took me a while to figure out many features, I’m a game designer, not a video editor XD.
Dr dres colour match. I’ll definitely have a look for it, and see what I can do with it!
thanks.

Edit:
Thats a really cool tool! I think for it to be any use though, I’d have to do each scene. I think they are all graded differently, and is why I could only get a close fit rather than perfection. I don’t have the time to do scene by scene, even though I would really love to. Perhaps a project for the future.

Jurassic Park theatrical regrade (Released)
Time

I spent today regrading the bluray release of Jurassic Park to more closely match the original release.
I don’t have a massive amount of time for these kinds of things, so it’s a blanket adjustment across the entire movie. some scenes don’t match as closely as they could, but I went through the whole movie very carefully, adjusting as i went, and settled for a very good compromise.
please take a look at the screenshots.
first is bluray, second is 35mm scan, third is my regrade.
