Regarding DTS-HD Master Audio... is there any software out there that can encode audio tracks in that codec?
avatar
DVD-R can't have CSS encryption. Well technically you can copy the encrypted files of course, but the decryption keys are stored in a sector that only exists on pressed discs and can't be put on any DVD+/-R.
avatar
Was able to just copy the folders to my HD.
avatar
FixVTS might help you out.
avatar
So I have no idea what's it choking on.
avatar
Imgburn was able to read past any errors that made the discs freeze up in all my players. It just refuses to make an image file from what it thinks is a "multisession disc". These discs were finalized when I made them.
avatar
What a name! I'll take a look at it, thanks!
avatar
Silverwook ... RoadKil's Unstoppable Copier ... I just found it yesterday and it did an amazing job with a very difficult disc but it handled it smoothly.
avatar
I bought a huge stash of Fuji brand when several stores blew them out on clearance and never had problems until now. Discs that are going bad were all recorded in the same month, so I suspect one bad batch.
avatar
Different brand names, but I think both are Tiayo Yuden made?
avatar
Were the discs the same make? Could be a compatibility problem.
avatar
Ok! Thanks all for the info. Still scratching my head as to why one disc gave me no problems and the other did. Both were made with the same recorder and I had not encountered this issue before.
avatar
If DVD-R has some copy protection (which I doubt, as I think you're talking about burned DVDs), just use DVDFab (or DVDFab Passthrough), you'll be able to copy then unprotected files off DVD.
avatar
If your tool cannot.. You can copy the video DVD folder to your hard drive, and use DVDShrink to create an iso...
avatar
Only problem if you got some kind of copy protection...
avatar
Almost every burning tool can create a video DVD from a video DVD folder...
avatar
Ok. If I copy the folders, there won't be any issues burning a disc from them at a later date? The DVD-R is just beginning to go bad and only my PC drive can read it at this point.
avatar
I did not even came to the point to test how it does its work, because I already stopped at the how to work with it, because it was plain not the thing I want and need...
avatar
I can't name the individual files.. just the "discname 01.mkv" name... also i dislike the gui and usability...
avatar
How so? I've never had any trouble with it
avatar
I uninstalled MakeMKV after 5 Minutes, because it is total useless for me...
avatar
There's also MakeMKV
avatar
Is it already a DVD-r? So no copy protection? Just copy the folders... Also DVD shrink did always a decent job with unprotected DVD movie media..
avatar
Can anyone recommend a good program to copy DVD-R to a hard disk? Imgburn is being very uncooperative lately.
avatar
Oh.
avatar
I was commenting on BT's youtube link. Old Saturday Morning animated show. An "X-Files" inspired episode.
avatar
???
avatar
Wow, ReBoot, old school toons.
avatar
At least I got the formula down for field dominance reversal... and yes, I just now tested it on the file where I discovered the anomaly.
avatar
Let's just say there's a reason why PBS prefers interlaced content to be top field first, in accordance with Red Book specifications. Right now, I'm having problems with interlaced content which had been encoded bottom field first.
avatar
As Scully says (okay, I watch X-Files, too): "The answers are there. You just have to know where to look." Wink
avatar
I know ... you think I watch too much X-Files. Well, I watch too much cartoons. Okay, so they're X-Files cartoons ... "ReBoot: Trust No One" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tRFhJROL19w Big Grin

LOL@BT

Don't let GOOGLE in your HOME! (Get it? Google Home? Smile ) They think it's 1984 and that they are Big Brother -- https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=abraham+lincoln -- see the Google box to the right. Abraham Lincoln was in the "National Union Party"? Say what? What other propaganda do we get? And why? Time to look for another search engine -- "Orwell's Nightmare: The NSA and Google" http://www.huffingtonpost.com/john-w-whi...10171.html Woo
avatar
Yeah, it's a long shot. But that guy is never going to give up looking for it. Everybody has their own movie holy grail I guess.
avatar
Possible uncut... With running time of 58 minutes, after deleting the commercial breaks? I doubt that...
avatar
Anybody in Germany that could record a possible uncut version of The Land Before Time? http://originaltrilogy.com/topic/The-Lan.../4#1096553
avatar
A project thread is already created; you can find it in the In-Progress section.
avatar
Another project thread? I hope? Smile
avatar
Anyway, once I start with the encoding process, I'm going to send a test file depicting a barebones encoding of the series premiere, "Mainframes to Minis to Micros", in MP4 format via WeTransfer. Feedback from those who receive it next week would be much appreciated.
avatar
So, it looks like Season 1 is going to be complete after all.
avatar
Well! That appears to be an even better resource than Internet Archive, at least as far as getting the correct episode orders is concerned!
avatar
A good resource (may or may not be duplicated at Internet Archive) --> http://stquantum.xtreemhost.com/ ... with .PDF show notes --> http://stquantum.xtreemhost.com/cc/content/
avatar
BTW I'm getting them from Internet Archive so I can get the MPEG-2 files, which are more easily converted to the 720p60 format in which I'll be doing this project.
avatar
Also did that.
avatar
Check through YouTube, too. Bunches are there.
avatar
Internet Archives is where I get those episodes. There is an episode on utilities from Season 4, but in regards to that topic, that's just about it.
avatar
"Computer Chronicles" (and "Net Cafe") host Stewart Cheifet - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stewart_Cheifet - and interviewed on TWiT - https://twit.tv/shows/triangulation/episodes/114
avatar
I think I recently checked out an episode of Computer Chronicles that actually showed a LD-R
avatar
Computer Chronicles! Awesome retro-tech!! Definitely check Internet Archives -- a lot of these kind of things wind up there.
avatar
Any French collector of VHS around here? Eheh
avatar
OK, as I prepare to work on my aforementioned Computer Chronicles project, it appears there's one missing episode from Season 1, centering on software utilities. I believe it's the 20th episode of Season 1.
avatar
I just can't seem to find any info about the actual "master" used to create the French VHS, sorry.
avatar
Evit, here's another link that "might" be helpful. http://www.worldcat.org/title/bandits-ba...referer=br
avatar
Sorry evit, it was the best info I could find. Smile
avatar
Jetrell Fo, I wish we had such a similar archive for all Italian releases! My question was not much about if it ever existed on VHS but rather if the French VHS was from French theatrical master, with French title and credits, rather than from US master.
avatar
A bit of a teaser for a future project, to be released sometime next year. In 1983, the PC market was in its development stages. The IBM PC was just setting the standard for the computer industry. The Macintosh wasn't even available yet! Join Stu and Gary as they explore this young world of microcomputers and what made them special back in the day. Because no matter how powerful your computer, you just know they've all got to start somewhere.
avatar
avatar
(French title: Bandits, bandits)
avatar
Doesn anybody know if Time Bandits was ever published on VHS in France with French theatrical credits? I only found this advert https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jVBCq5oDnrc
avatar
Koopa, just use Film Convert. There's no grain plate you will come out with that will emulate as well as FC as it has years of development, plus you can tweak everything from the inside. It works with DaVinci, FCPX etc
avatar
Details to come in a future thread, after I've audited every last detail in regards to film stocks.
avatar
As I finally get my new Lenovo laptop with DaVinci Resolve 14 ready to work on my projects, I'm going to need some clean film grainplates, so as to emulate an authentic film look as closely as possible, because I'm pretty sure from the feedback here that even the grainplate that came with Resolve isn't going to do me any good.
avatar
I'll send you another copy that includes English and German, don't worry about it Big Grin
avatar
He is not completely wrong: said off DVD Edition has no English audio, only Italian audio, and I don't understand Italian... Big Grin (but it is a version not on another DVD in my collection)
avatar
There can be only one
avatar
... But... But... But it is in my collection... My.. Preciousss! Tongue
avatar
Give it up, you don't even need it! Tongue
avatar
He just wants a few of the DVDs in my collection... I think it only was one... A silly movie... "Highlander 2"...Big Grin
avatar
I also didn't notice any pirate ships and treasure chests just lying around either, arrrrrgggggggggggghhhhhhh.
avatar
It's not the 4th Wink lol
avatar
Good, Mr Brown. Add more loot to the treasure that I'll be stealing from you!
avatar
"The Evil Dead" first video release, before it was banned...
avatar
Yay me! I bought an old German VHS tape... Hope it arrives until weekend... Want to check title credits...
avatar
YAY ME!!! I just picked up the U.S. Shin Godzilla Bluray and the digital code gave me the english and japanese version of the film. WAY COOL!!!!
avatar
the nice fellows at screenshotcomparison had the database full, so what? They wiped out all comparisons made before today!!! Eek
avatar
Koopa: thread moved to technical subforum
avatar
Anyway... anyone know any 70mm grainplates I could use to simulate 70mm blowups, be they OAR blowups or cropped-to-standard blpowups?
avatar
BTW is there a smiley for "egg on face"? Because that's exactly how I'm feeling right now.
avatar
I never actually thought of that! Could someone please move it there? Thanks!
avatar
. . maybe in Technical Info?
avatar
That would make a great thread! (nudge,nudge,wink,wink)
avatar
It'll be good practice for original projects I plan on doing at some point in the future.
avatar
Currently, I'm trying my hand at reconstructing 5.1 surround audio from stuff only available in 2-channel stereo.
avatar
BronzeTitan, you are very attentive, bravo! Evit, ci sentiamo quando torni.
avatar
Ciao til the 4th or after. Smile
avatar
If anyone asks about me I'm away until the 4th and might not be able to reply. Ciao

An interesting article about The Godfather saga restoration: http://web.archive.org/web/2008072415044.../page1.php wanted to add it to a related thread - that I think was made, but can't find it anymore...
avatar
Quickly now, since I'm about to make my choice. Given the choice between the HP Omen gaming desktop, the Asus ROG Strix GL753, and the Lenovo Legion Y720, which would you recommend?
avatar
I think it was one of those "can I have a myspleen because I love star wars long time invite" people but I have no proof, just a feeling.
avatar
I would hate to think it was a forum member. Anyone could lurk and copy that information used in the ebay listings though.
avatar
I don't think Koopa was talking about eBay. At least I didn't think he was.
avatar
Ebay is not going to tell anyone who it is.
avatar
@Koopa, as far as I know, they have not figured out who it is.
avatar
avatar
Regarding the sale of Harmy's DEs... it's one thing to make custom packaging and labels for copies for personal use, but selling them is just wrong. Has the person who dared offer them for sale been blacklisted yet?
avatar
Glasses free will be some variation of lenticular screen
avatar
And giant freaking tv's is hardly a new idea. Wink https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jumbotron
avatar
I would think glasses free 3D at theaters is going to be a giant monitor of some sort. It's what Cameron wants ready when Avatar 2 finally comes out.
