I don't think AACS2 has been cracked. It was probably leaked by someone who handled the disc before it was encrypted for retail.
avatar
It's the only 4K-compatible gaming computer I could find at my local Best Buy (both of them), anyway.
avatar
I say it's about time! OK! Time to consider getting an Alienware Aurora as our next restoration PC!
avatar
Thanks Chew
avatar
Given what I've read, I'm fairly sure it's been cracked. I'm curious to see how it works too. I think the file structure is similar to BD.
avatar
Might be, might be an exploit for that disc only.
avatar
No one is talking yet
avatar
So, AACS 2.0 is ded?
avatar
I'm curious to see the file structure. Especially how the HDR works.
avatar
I saw that
avatar
As it happens, it's The Smurfs 2. Now we have to learn how to edit another video format. Big Grin
avatar
The first UHD BD is in the wild. Happy

avatar
I happen to have a friend who lives in the Dallas area last I checked, and I just now forwarded it to him.
avatar
Guys, anyone from Dallar or Austin that would pick up this LD collection + player for free?!? http://originaltrilogy.com/topic/Free-LD...r/id/53885 - if still available, of course...
avatar
haven't forgot about that Alien....what happened with that?
avatar
after what went down with my site I took some time off but have started a new one
avatar
it is indeed I HDVinnie
avatar
Found the colour timing between these frames from two separate trailers interesting. I'm not fussed about the armpit issues lol http://epicstream.com/news/Wonder-Woman-...arner-Bros
avatar
Thanks MrBrown for the link! Will look at that later
avatar
I just got hold of the original Aliens THX DVD of the SE (first release). The trailer on that one looks very much like the blu-ray minus the blanket tint! Lots of cyan
avatar
Bloatware was never my cup of tea, that's for sure.
avatar
Guys, DO... NOT... PLAY... TO... Candy Crush Soda Saga!!! It's way worse than any psychotropic substance... not joking (pun intended)! Big Grin
avatar
Probably Vinnie?
avatar
Who were you?
avatar
been along time.....see my old account was banned after I fell of the face of the earth

Is there a thread or project somewhere for the perseveration of studio logos and idents? Was watching a bunch yesterday (old UA, CBS FOX Video, New World Pictures etc) and was wondering if there was an audience for it? Would be a good resource for other preservation projects as well
avatar
Because for AFOD I was hoping to extend the title track a bit in its first couple of uses (specifically, when Joe confronts the Baxters that had earlier attacked him, and later when the Baxters are preparing for their dinner with the Rojos).
avatar
Regarding music track replacement... is it possible to isolate the sound effects and dialogue in doing so?
avatar
Cool! ... at General discussions -- Everything else -- Recommended BMD setup for color grading :: https://forum.fanres.com/thread-1446.html
avatar
It's up now.
avatar
Keep in mind that whatever 2nd monitor you settle on, you'll probably need a calibration kit (hardware/software). BTW, is there a thread here with all this kind of info? If not, maybe you should start one so we all can refer to it long after these Shouts fade away. It would make a good thread.
avatar
And as for actual stuff from BMD, would their UltraStudio be recommended? Because that's the cheapest external I could find being offered on their site.
avatar
Because I'm planning on doing stuff in 1080p HD.
avatar
Anyway, would a CRT monitor work as the second monitor for color grading, or would something more high-tech be called for in such a case?
avatar
Means it's one of the greats.

^ ^ ^ Thanks for that heads-up on the RIP. Now what does FTW mean? Well according to http://acronyms.thefreedictionary.com/FTW -- Forget The World, Fare Thee Well, For Those Wondering, For The Worms, Forever Two Wheels, Frank The Welder (mountain bikes), Future Technology Workshop, Forward Towards Wing (Hattrick online game), Families Than Work, Free The Wookies, Forever Truly White, Forward The Word, Full Throttle Workshop, Forever Together Whenever (gaming clan), Face The World, Free Trade Wharf, For The World, Free To Watch, Florida Tax Watch, For The Wolf, For The Wii, For The Weak, Free The Weed, Feel The Wind, Flying Training Wing, Free The Whales, Fight to Win, Feed The World, Feel The Wrath, For The Win, Follow The Way ... WTF (Where's The Fun) ?
avatar
Yeah! The Herald Video japanese Evil Dead LaserDisc arrived today. Too bad, I see my LD player next time in two weeks
avatar
Anyway, regarding the BMD equipment I'll be needing for manual color grading in Resolve... would a CRT monitor suffice, or do I need something else as my second monitor?
avatar
Silence of the Lambs FTW
avatar
Agreed RIP
avatar
RIP Jonathan Demme

Another for Alien Day: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YvIctsTvNRQ ... with a superhero, at the end, who is unimpressed with franchise milking. Big Grin
avatar
Same for france!
avatar
avatar
Here in Germany, too.
avatar
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is released today in Italian theaters... a week before USA, it seems.
avatar
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

Argh.. theese collecting desires! I just treated myself a little easter present at ebay: First LD release from Japan of "The Evil Dead"...
