Also can go up to 32gb of RAM. For 8000 only pick up one with Intel core 2 duo and for 8300 either i5 or i7.
avatar
Well, you can pick anyone compatible with OSX (or you can stay Windows if you prefer), that's the beauty of HP elite 8300 or 8000, you can customise it without having to build it from scratch.
avatar
Geez, no for video editing you need a good GPU and they cost a lot more than $80.
avatar
Your graphic card will cost around 35/80 bucks depending on the performance. Any other buy is a waste of money.
avatar
The best I seen is HP elite 8000 SFF can be had for 80 bucks, accomodate Yosemite, or HP elite 8300 (core i7) for around 300, can accomodate Sierra. Don't pay anything more, buy these used there are tons of them from retail stores, and customise with a graphic card, you have more performance for your buck than any costly other pc.
avatar
sometimes it is just convenient..
avatar
Never buy pre-built PCs
avatar
I don't know about Lenovo, but with Dell (Alienware) you pay some design and name...
avatar
Specifically, the Alienware Aurora R5, the Alienware Area 51, and the IdeaCentre Y900.
avatar
OK, supposing I was to future-proof for 4K, currently I have to choose between a Dell and a Lenovo (I'm an aspiring gamer, too). I'm trying to figure out which of my three options to choose here.
avatar
avatar
Might be fun to compare
avatar
There was a lot of talk that the Criterion track was sweetened for their release
avatar
I'd be curious to hear that robocop release
avatar
Someone a PAL Betamax Player? There is an auction on another german auction system, with german languaged Betamax tapes... Smile i.e.: Apocalypse Now ...
avatar
thanks.
avatar
@MrBrown According to LDDB.com both Image releases are the same disc with different covers. The one with the Laserdisc showing on the right side of the cover is the earliest release. PM sent
avatar
..but I don't know wich one...
avatar
Oh.. there is the US Robocop LD at german eBay.. I think, according to the title of the auction.. it is the Image Release...
avatar
I know, I should've been more specific, I tend to ignore TV shows in general.
avatar
Oh. That. Well, I know of a TV show called House myself.
avatar
I'm talking of House, the 80's horror film and its following chapters that finally just arrived on Blu-Ray. @Doombot I did hear about some incorrectly framed scenes and I also had the thought that they could be easily fixed.
avatar
Well, technically, it's TV on Blu-ray in this case, but when it comes to TV on any home media format it's all the same, up to and including any music rights.
avatar
When Evit mentioned House S1-4.
avatar
Wait, when were we talking about tv on dvd?
avatar
Speaking of TV on DVD, is the R2 DVD of Open All Hours edited for content like the R1 DVD is? I heard there were music clearance issues.
avatar
Having said that, at least the scan is nice and all of this can be fixed.
avatar
I'm not that happy with House, it's too bright and i don't know about the colors (skin tones) plus the framing is wrong.
avatar
I have them all Wink
avatar
I just ordered House 1-4 blu ray box set from the UK. Anyone owns it already?
avatar
http://www.in70mm.com/now_showing/ A lot of this isn't up to date though.
avatar
FYI Alien is getting around 6 70mm screenings during May / June in London at The Prince Charles Cinema and Picturehouse Central
avatar
Not funny.
avatar
Like add grain etc so that it fits with the laserdisc versions of the original 1977 film
avatar
Just did, no you lose the high contrast and the picture is soft. If you want to tweak that one, use FilmConvert to make it look like film.
avatar
Can someone with a calibrated display take a look at these? http://screenshotcomparison.com/comparison/206427

(and of course there is this about Easter in the Catholic Encyclopedia) -- "The [use of Easter eggs] may have its origin in paganism, for a great many pagan customs, celebrating the return of spring, gravitated to Easter. The egg is the emblem of the germinating life of early spring. The rabbit is a pagan symbol and has always been an emblem of fertility." -- https://answersingenesis.org/holidays/ea...an-origin/
avatar
Happy Easter!
avatar
Oh.. then I would think of getting the first, if possible. Because, I hope that it may have an localizied Title Card. At least I have that hope.. Smile
avatar
@MrBrown it seems there are 2 Evil Dead German LDs, each one having the same Cat.#(13137). It seems we Brits didn't get a LD of The Evil Dead Sad
avatar
Happy Easter guys! (I always forget about gals... are anyone here, by the way?!?)
avatar
Now I just need the first german VHS and the German LD (sadly, it is censored), and I would be satisfied regarding Movie Releases of that flick.. until some 2K or 4K restauration Remaster would occur... Smile Too bad, the german VHS I would love to have even is more expensive than the japanese LD...
avatar
That's cool
avatar
avatar
exactly
avatar
Evil Dead laserdisc, sweet. Is that the Herald videogram release?
avatar
After seeing Blade Runner on the "Early master" List.. it is extreme, how different the colors are in some scenes in that DVD master: http://sd.caps-a-holic.com/vergleich.php...eichID=171
avatar
Argh.. theese collecting desires! I just treated myself a little easter present at ebay: First LD release from Japan of "The Evil Dead"...
avatar
The 2002 reprint master date for My Fellow Americans, by the way, is April 9, 2002 (and yes, I just checked).
avatar
Here's funnier (poor Porkins) -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dNYIzKu6Lr4
avatar
a Star Wars teaser (you know, like teasing a sibling)
avatar
Well it's funny but it's not a teaser Tongue
avatar
Now this is a REAL Star Wars teaser (nyuk, nyuk) -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32itsA81Ouw
avatar
Teaser, not trailer. Wink
avatar
This trailer is underwhelming!
avatar
Looks like a generic SciFi movie. I hope the movie lives from its calm moments.
avatar
avatar
Trailers of films shot digitally... ehhhh. I would say buy it only if you're a big fan of Avatar.
avatar
I say take it, chances are they might represent how the film looks on 35mm.
avatar
I'm offered some Avatar 35mm trailers... about 25 bucks each, not sure it's interesting since they all originate from digital?
avatar
yep. Maybe they duplicated it and then cut it out, but kept it in the box anyway, so it's definetely a 35mm print
avatar
Is there any splice on the lead? Maybe they just used a random lead they had handy. http://images.tate.org.uk/sites/default/...torage.jpg
avatar
Hey guys, I just bought a 35mm trailer, I thought I was going to get a regular 35mm print, but it comes with a lead that says it's an internegative. Does that mean I bought the interneg instead of a regular print? It does look positive ie the colors are not reversed.
avatar
It goes inside the PC, or if using an external BMD output box, just plug in in via USB3 or Thunderbolt, depending which box you get.
avatar
Now that I know it's compatible with Nvidia's GeForce GPUs, of course.
avatar
Where do I place the DeckLink card on the desktop?
avatar
A decklink card works with any graphics card, you keep your main card for general computer use/GUi etc. and the decklink card supplies the image to the broadcast monitor or TV for you to view the colour corrected footage on, and make adjustments etc.
avatar
Now that I'm more certain of my theory about the dates on each DVD being their master dates... anyone have a DVD of My Fellow Americans dated 1997 on the packaging?
avatar
avatar
I'm guessing the Decklink card won't work right with the Nvidia card, right?
avatar
It is like colour correcting whilst wearing green tinted sun glasses, not really possible to do a good job.
avatar
Without a second monitor, and a BMD output card or external output device, Resolve is completely useless for colour correction, as what you see on your main GUI monitor (your standard computer monitor) is *not* the correct colours or levels, even if you calibrate it.
avatar
The cheapest options are the BMD decklink cards, such as the mini monotir https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/decklink
avatar
download the manual, there is a configuration guide and it explains everything. Basically to run resolve properly, you need a second monitor that can be calibrated fro (at least) rec709. To connect that monitor to your computer, it must be connected through a BMD device, either a PCIe card inside the computer, or an external USB or Thunderbolt output box.
avatar
@poita The trouble is, I don't know what specifically I need from BMD for color correction in Resolve. Terms like "output" and "card" are, to me, pretty vague, and not helping is that I have only a passing familiarity with BMD--why, I didn't know until you told me I needed BMD output that BMD owned DaVinci Resolve.
avatar
This came up in my youtube feed and I enjoyed it: In praise of 16mm: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nVWn0DENk5s
avatar
Yes, it has to be a BMD card, you cannot colour manage via multiple monitor outputs from your graphics card.
avatar
Koopa you might want to post your question in his OT thread so he has time to see it and respond - http://originaltrilogy.com/topic/The-Ori...s/id/49756
avatar
Matrix 1,2,3 4:3 or 16:9?
avatar
Any word from the guy who said I needed a BMD output to do anything on Resolve?
avatar
It has a full bitrate DTS track with the original score. It also supposedly has outtakes during the end credits, which I don't think other editions have. I do have a PAL DVD with DTS, but an NTSC source would be preferable.
avatar
Nope... What does make it interesting?
avatar
Does anybody here have the Japanese DVD of Ong Bak?
avatar
Does it have to be a BMD output, specifically? Wouldn't the 1070 or 1080 have multiple monitor ports, so that it'd theoretically be capable of running a second monitor by default?
avatar
LOL seems there's no seed anywhere for this anymore. Let us know if you find it somewhere.
avatar
"Where Eagles Dare" -- Diesem projekt ist hervorragend! Danke für das "Heads-up". Muss es anschauen. ... I mean ... Cool! must check this out!
avatar
We can always fix that, since the german dub is on the Blu-ray too!
avatar
So a better version would be to have the beginning and the ending played out in English and basically 90% of the film in German.
avatar
Chateau=Schloss, sorry.
avatar
I actually find that the French version didn't go all the way, as scenes that would have been more believably played in German, are in French (Scenes in the gasthaus and the chateau). The agents sent can speak fluent German (Said so by Turner) so it would make sense for them to avoid speaking English after they land to avoid being heard speaking in the language of a country they are at war with (In "The Americans", the orders clearly forbid the agents from speaking Russian after they leave the USSR).
avatar
edit: just found out someone had the same idea and this half us half german dub can be found online
avatar
Would anyone interested in Where Eagles Dare, half breed edition ? Let me explain, in the film, all german officers speak english with a german accent in the original version. However in the french version, they all speak german. The french used the german dub for all these parts, with added subtitles. It's much better cos it gives a much more immersive experience of being on dangerous grounds. So my idea would be to take the original english, and patch all the german parts from the french dub, thus giving all non french speaking fans the exact same feel as all the french had when they viewed the film.
avatar
@Koopa he means for the output to a second monitor
avatar
But poita - Resolve is FREE!
avatar
And what would I need a BMD port for, if I don't have one of their cameras?
avatar
US, why?
avatar
Which country are you in?
avatar
At work they are doing 4K editing real time with a Ryzen and RX480 8GB card, very cost effective and very fast.
avatar
You may want to look at Ryzen, much higher performance for the $$ for editing work. The extra cores really get put to work.
