Yes, I understood. By "output", I meant final output, i.e., a straight conversion to WAV with no syncing/processing intended. And my editor is AviSynth, so even if I were syncing, I could stay in 16 or 24 bit unless I specifically needed to do certain kinds of processing.
avatar
i.e. -down32 in eac3to
avatar
I mean, if you intend to do some syncing, you might as well go straight to the bitdepth of the audio editor
avatar
I didn't envisage a mixdown, but you could do it like that.
avatar
In which case you might as well just decode directly to 32-float (the internal bit-depth of most DAWs) and dither to 16 with the final mixdown
avatar
Yeah, equivalent precision should be 20-24 bits, so eac3to decodes to 24bit. The user can always add -down16 if 16-bit output is needed.
avatar
I've never been sure about bit-depth with lossy, the online consensus is that LD DTS is 20bit resolution but I'm not sure that is just an equivalence
avatar
I'd like to read that thread. There was even an attempt made to get the dev of MediaInfo to remove that field from its output (for lossy tracks) to stop people asking about it over and over again.
avatar
This message that I read questioned all of my beliefs about EAC3to Tongue I also thought that we should always decode lossy formats in 24 bits, but maybe the person was wrong, and that libav / FFmpeg is already updated on EAC3to
avatar
I'm desperately looking for this thread, it was a recent discussion, on videohelp, doom9, OT, fanres, I forgot ...
avatar
Thank you, but I just read a recent thread (here or on videohelp, or OT, I don't remember) where the person advised to update (libav I think) so that EAC3to decodes in 24 bits only if necessary, because it tends to decode in 24 bits even when it is not necessary.
avatar
There's nothing to update: lossy tracks don't have bit-depth. because they are encoded in the frequency domain. This is why eac3to decodes them to 24bit. You might have better luck with technical questions if you post a thread, rather than using the shoutbox.
avatar
I have a question: What should I update on EAC3to so that it correctly detects the bit depth (on AC3 and DTS)? Libav?
avatar
Hi, I have a CD DTS theater which is in DTS-ES : Corpse Bride in French. ES was therefore for home video, and theaters.
avatar
ES was and still is on home releases
avatar
DTS-ES was theatrical but matrixed the same as Dolby EX
avatar
Was DTS-ES a Theatrical sound format like Dolby Digital EX was? Or was it home video only?
avatar
Criterion post LD have never been perfect
avatar
@Chewtobacca Thanks.
avatar
Even Criterion isn't perfect.
avatar
@titanic Read the comments on Moshrom's blog. It's the best that's available. I bought the Criterion BD partly because of it. It's just that it should sound better. https://blah-ray.blogspot.com/search/lab...%281975%29
avatar
^^^ Regarding the 2.69:1, I know the story behind it, but it still looks awesome, and I value the old R1 DVD for it.
avatar
The 2.69 AR was awesome, it gave an epic feel to the film!
avatar
What is wrong with Criterion's Barry Lyndon mono audio? I was thinking of buying that...
avatar
According to DVDbeaver, the 2.69 AR was meant for director John Sturges to mess around with to frame a 2.35 image in post.
avatar
@Moshrom Yeah, it's the pre-SE MGM R1 DVD, the one with the very wide AR (2.69:1 according to dvdcompare.net). It sounds all right, from what I remember, but it's been a while since I listened to it. I'll fish it out at the weekend.
avatar
To be fair, the only Kubrick on DVD that is master supervised are the original R1 box set LD ports (complete with original mixes), and the R2 EWS Snapcase open matte uncensored. The rest are just revisions on a master work.
avatar
Is that the R1 DVD from 1998 - how does it sound? Stephonovich will probably be capturing the Criterion LD once he sorts out his new bit-perfect setup.
avatar
Almost certainly. It **might** end up being the "Barry Lyndon" situation, in which the Criterion mono, although not brilliant, is the best of a bad bunch. I'm still hanging on to the original R1 DVD, partly for the AR.
avatar
Too much to hope for, everything above 10khz is getting wiped.
avatar
Yeah, let's hope the mono escapes the customary Criterion treatment.
avatar
The Great Escape is getting the Criterion treatment in May. A new 4K remaster with the original mono.
avatar
Kind of you to say CSchmidlapp
avatar
@PDB Your projects have shown there is more to res projects than just the upscaling Smile
avatar
DVDFab have a version of it included with there ripping software also.
avatar
But hopefully it will democratize upscaling
avatar
I guess I wasted a LOT of time going frame by frame
avatar
Thanks for the heads up CSchmidlapp
avatar
avatar
I think that shot had crew and equipment visable in 4:3 but not in the widescreen version. Warner probably wanted to make that shot tighter in the new transfer so that it wouldn't reveal any crew or equipment blunders in 4:3 or 1.78.
avatar
Bet they did it just to mess with us!
avatar
the colour grading is diffferent as well https://caps-a-holic.com/c.php?go=1&a=0&...95&i=5&l=0
avatar
Maybe there is something wrong on the top of the initial scan?
avatar
Looks like Warner zoomed in and DNR'd that shot in particular when they made the new master. Why DNR and cropping is anyone's guess, considering they're not well known for that as are Universal.
avatar
Anyone aware of the BD transfer fault for Tequila Sunrise during the third act of the film? Check it out compared to the Russian HDTV cap https://caps-a-holic.com/c.php?d1=3628&d...=7&l=0&a=1

Have a good one MrBrown
avatar
Thanks... Sitting in the train to the airport right now... Seems if german train is just 5 minutes late... So it is called punctual for trains...
avatar
I miss the original Star Tours.
avatar
Have a good time, MrBrown!
avatar
so guys.. I am off to some vacations... more than 2 weeks up up and away.. maybe I have internet on my mobile phone to, at least check sometimes in...
avatar
The first 2 are new masters, the others are upscaled from the 2K DI with better encoding, but 4 has some terrible (probably HDR related) blow outs
avatar
They re not new masters on the 4k potters
avatar
It's a guy who does 1080p SDR encodes from some HDR UHD stuff
avatar
Any what?
avatar
You could try and see if there are any SWTYBLZ encodes
avatar
Does anyone know if I can find downscales of the 4K transfers of the Harry Potter films?
avatar
Fight Club was an early 5.1EX mix
avatar
Had Fight Club a new mix for home theatrical releases? On the German BD with the DTS-ES 6.1 Audio it is explicitly mentioned that it is the original theatrical mix.
avatar
at least on eBay someone seems to sell a full screen version https://www.ebay.de/itm/362872596219
avatar
Have the Harry Potter movies not been given remastered Blu-rays?
avatar
I'm also looking to find a DVD of Breathless, the remake with Richard Gere, where the open matte original 4/3 DVD version is said to feature extra nudity Smile But those don't seem to be available in used stores.
avatar
That's interesting. I'm wondering if an IMAX like composite would be possible. I'm going to track down a copy, the P&S DVD goes for pretty cheap.
avatar
I'm pretty sure the credits+opening title sequences on the Brosnan films were shot Super 35, so they could be shown in 4:3 without cutting off names or vertically squeezing. Die Another Day allegedly had some sequences shot in Super 35 such as the helicopter shots, and apparently the CG FX shots were rendered in 1.78.
avatar
avatar
avatar
Mostly on the left side, if I recall. To the point where it just says "OTHER DAY".
avatar
When I rented that one a couple years ago, I recall most of the feature being notoriously cropped.
avatar
Does anyone has ever bought Die Another Day 007 DVD in full screen? I'm trying to find out if it's open matte, or just cropped. Thank you.
avatar
They've predicted everything!
avatar
Hah, didn't realize they had predicted Fox would be bought: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ltQ_2by2UY
avatar
I'm sure we will find out this has all been predicted in the Simpsons at some point Wink
avatar
Despite the fact that it's now the 21st Century?
avatar
So they're calling it 20th Century Pictures again?
avatar
Disney has zero respect for anything, nothing new
avatar
It’s a shame
avatar
We aren’t losing the 20th Century part just the Fox part
avatar
True but the name Fox from Fox film goes back over a hundred
avatar
Not quite over a hundred - 20th Century Fox was created in the '30s with the merger of 20th Century Pictures and Fox Film
avatar
Thus ending a studio name more than a hundred years old
avatar
Disney is removing the name fox from 20th Century Fox

The original release is pretty bad. I did a quick colour correction on it myself because is looked so bad but I never rendered it out as a final video.
avatar
There are 2 versions of Knock Off available in Germany There was a 'remastered' one released recently. Ive not seen it but I read it uses the same master just altered / improved upon.
avatar
There is only a german Blu
avatar
Love that movie. Tsui Hark rules!
avatar
Anyone familiar with the movie Knock Off with Van Damme? Apparently it has no Blu-Ray. At least no Blu-Ray released in the United States. The picure quality is awful. It definitely needs a remaster
avatar
@Chewtobacca Thanks.

Once you start participating you can start PMing
avatar
Hi MrTroidex. You can’t PM since you are currently at lurker level
avatar
Why I can't send pm for anyone?
avatar
I also confirm. Team Blu have used the remastered BR for their release. My go-to since then.
avatar
@CSchmidlapp yes it was my go to for a while, but tbh I haven't really watched it at home since catching it on 35mm
avatar
Oh, sorry. But, where i can get?
avatar
@MrTroidex. Hi bud. Have a quick read of the forum rules Smile
avatar
Anyone could send me the download link for best version of The Terminator (1984) pm, please?
avatar
I am searching for the relevant informations, too. I also thought it was pre-remaster. But I also might be wrong on that. Smile Time is speed-running by.
avatar
Is Team blu your go to zoidberg?
