This is the end. For sure.
avatar
I cannot imagine anything worse. Just horrific
avatar
My God.... that's horrifying...
avatar
Yeah, everyone who lost a child or family member must be absolutely devastated.
avatar
Sad Sad Sad
avatar
Yeah I thought it was pretty clear they meant BronzeTitan's comment. It's really tragic news no matter who's families they are.
avatar
Okay, just wanted to make sure.
avatar
^^ Fo, mine and poita's comments weren't directed at you. :-)
avatar
Thanks for letting us know, I left a message. Also, RIP Roger Moore- https://twitter.com/sirrogermoore/status...7018086400
avatar
I was just asking, I wasn't trying to start anything. Besides, I was the one suggesting people stop over there to offer support for Darth Solo. Sad
avatar
^ This.
avatar
Not the time to get into it while Darth Solo is grieving, it is the last thing he would want to have to read through.
avatar
^ ^ If not now, then the next time? ^ Yep, 2 months ago, by London Mayor Sadiq Khan (rather!)
avatar
Didn't the Mayor of London say something kind of awkward not long ago ... like terror is a part of life now or something?
avatar
BT, you might well be right, but now's not the time.
avatar
Condolences to the families of the murdered. But why should we expect anything different, today, or tomorrow, when we deliberately ignore yesterday? ... BBC NEWS (today): "The investigation is 'complex and wide ranging', police said, and they have urged people not to speculate on the attacker's identity." || RUSH LIMBAUGH (today): You remember John Kerry once said when he was secretary of state, "Yes, it’s mass murder, but it’s not happening every day. We’re just gonna have to learn to put up with it." And then it happens again, the same people come out -- "Let’s not be hasty. Let’s not prejudge." [But] We know who the terrorist is here. His name is Salman Abedi. || GEORGE SANTAYANA (1905-1906): "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."
avatar
Thanks for the heads-up, Fo. I just posted a condolence message. :-(
avatar
That's horrible, I can't imagine
avatar
I'm sure any show of support is welcome nsp.
avatar
Wish I knew Darth Solo better to be able to offer more support. That's just devastating.
avatar
Any of you that are still members over @ OT, Darth Solo lost his 12yr old daughter in the attack. Please stop in to their Emotional Support thread to share your condolences.

RIP Roger Moore

AA? or start into the numbers?
avatar
What generation letter do you get after gen Z?
avatar
Uhm.. why no "Playing RPGs"? That are neither Board nor Card games... (While Magic: The Gathering is a Card game...)
avatar
ah.. okay.. I am neither Gen X nor Gen Z ...
avatar
@MrBrown- click the link and read the text Wink
avatar
what is Gen X or Gen Z ?
avatar
If any of you are Gen X or Gen Z, if you could help my daughter out with her sociology university assignment and do a really quick survey, it would really help us out: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQ...sp=sf_link
avatar
Trainspotting's printed sequel is Porno, I guess the film producers considered that a hard sell
avatar
Lol me too. Maybe it's Danny Boyle messing with us
avatar
Does anyone know why the Trainspotting sequel has T2 in the title? It makes me do a double take every time I see it mentioned.
avatar
CLED is the future
avatar
That CLEDIS is pretty neat tech but crazy expensive.
avatar
Would that tech be better then Sonys CLEDIS tech
avatar
avatar
Damn! I'll take one too please Smile
avatar
Anyone want to buy me one of these? http://commercialintegrator.eu/samsung-c...TaoOfColor
avatar
Oh yeah, me too. Live long and prosper! (I'd do the vulcan hand sign, but that hurts worse than the typing.)
avatar
Maybe you are right, and I will certainly not go to the theater to watch it... still, I'll take a look when available on home media.
avatar
It seems too contemporary ... like the corporate comedy-group works up a New York comedy and the boss says, "Been there, done that, a boring flop". Then the group manager jumps in. "We can put it in space! Like Star Trek! All the Trekkies will automatically love it and we won't have to rewrite a thing!" The boss exclaims, "Great idea, and it'll make me a bundle! I knew my daughter picked a winner!" "Thanks, Dad!", the manager replies.
avatar
I think The Orville is just another comedy in a Star Trek-esque universe like Galaxy Quest, and it seems funny as well!
avatar
@Jetrell Fo- Yeah, rules are best made when in consultation with the membership base.
avatar
^ ^ I'm guessing "The Orville" is NOT true "Galaxy Quest" canon? Funny in a Hollywood sort-of way, but not canon. Tongue
avatar
@Valeyard ... it's a very grey area in that section really. It does have a majority, and make no mistake, they do rule it. Any internet site is only as good as it's admin in the end. Since it's his site, it's his rules, regardless of what rules are actually posted.
avatar
After Galaxy Quest, The Orville: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ej24W8gcmXQ
avatar
Yeah you have every right to feel disappointed. Sad I didn't see any bad behaviour looking over it, although to be fair I'm not too familiar with the OT section as I avoid it.
avatar
Cool, I was just a bit lost.
avatar
I am chosing not to say anything in public as we have some OT members here and it wouldn't be fair for things to spill over.
avatar
I can only direct you to OT's off topic section for more info poita.
avatar
?
avatar
Just look at it this way ... OT's loss is FR's gain! And your gain, too. Good luck!
avatar
I'm just totally disappointed right now.
avatar
It's probably just me. I'll be on eggshells for a few weeks after today.
avatar
No worries! it's easy! Watch this ... "!@#$%^&* %$# @^%$& !" ... Smile ... *taps foot*... "$%@# $#% !" ... "waits longer* ... Smile ... *hums to self* ... Smile ... See? Nothing! So go for it! Big Grin
avatar
I'm actually kind of fearful of using the shoutbox now. I hope everyone is doing well. Smile
avatar
Thanks heavens for FFAudioSource()! ****ing DTS Express mono...

avatar
I can't decide if this is brilliance or lack of ideas. But looking at the old school workmanship, I'll go with brilliance.
avatar
They have to kill themselves if they screw this up. https://youtu.be/RudzOqb-fRc
avatar
Thanks for the heads-up! I watched my Dark Crystal BD only a week or so ago. Let's hope the series is worth watching.
avatar
I didn't know they were doing a Dark Crystal TV series on Netflix: https://youtu.be/OGzVYyV_Jsg
avatar
Anyway... what grain plate would be recommended for 70mm?
avatar
Never mind, I think I'm getting the file.
avatar
What's the catch? (Note that I tend to avoid torrenting sites like the plague, personally.)
avatar
A quick search with that file name brought it up, and more, at various sharing sites. There are quite a few grain variations available, of [I'm guessing] lossless video files [200MB each] to merge into your footage: fine, course, clean, dirt, hair, flicker, etc.
avatar
There is a big free grainplate pack available some where but I don't remember where, with Kodak grainplates which look very good too.
avatar
I don't remember the source, as I downloaded it years ago, but I am using something with filename of "07-COARSE_CLEAN.mov"
avatar
For animated films, which grain plate would you swear by?
avatar
Generated grain will never beat real grainplate in my opinion.
avatar
You should propably find just grainplate that fits you, there are plenty available online. Most of them are in 1080p/2160p, i'd Spline36Resize it do video resolution and then overlay.
avatar
Supposing the grain plate I want (as a general rule, same stock as used for the film being restored) isn't available at the size I want, what settings would you recommend for the GrainFactory3 plugin?
avatar
avatar
Jeez RIP Chris Cornell
avatar
Avoid fake grain; find real 35mm grain plates instead - there are some free!
avatar
Test: Predator Ultimate Hunter... Big Grin
avatar
I'm not yet sure what to use for testing and comparison purposes, though.
avatar
I might use it for my projects, depending on how well it works.
avatar
Found a nifty DIY grain script: http://avisynth.nl/index.php/GrainFactory3
avatar
avatar
And Manhunter... I'm so jealous. And ID4 on July 4th on 35mm... I wish they had shown me THAT when I went to see "Resurgence"!
avatar
I'm tempted to go to one of the 70mm Aliens screening. I'd also love to go the the Mann-a-thon to see The Keep
avatar
avatar
Search on ebay for Alien 35mm Slide. I wonder where these originated from.
avatar
Stop making me spend money!

Phenomina Limited Edition: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Phenomena-Limit...06WGSDG22/ - I just bought mine!

To the Britons - Alien is playing in 70mm in London in June, details here: https://princecharlescinema.com/PrinceCh...?f=2329841

Another legend leaves us. RIP

RIP Powers Boothe. A favorite character actor of mine. Wolverines!

Lol that was awesome!

avatar
Thanks for the heads-up on their new release! Grab the new manual, too. I hope they improved the interface (you know, like for a video game -- easy to learn).
avatar
Anyway, regarding the new public beta of DaVinci Resolve, Resolve 14, would laptops be able to do more than with Resolve 12.5? Or would I still need a desktop for color grading purposes?
avatar
I swear by ffmpeg. Not really an AIO solution to anything, but, hey, better than freaking codec packs.
avatar
Actually. What Poita said. I was just trying to be nice. My experiences with codec packs have left me with the feeling that codec packs should be avoided. I use ffmpeg once in a great while but it's portable and doesn't affect the whole system.
avatar
LOL! Just read those extra pages and found someone familiar! ... Never mind ... Big Grin
avatar
@ AntcuFaalb - Google brought up http://originaltrilogy.com/topic/Blade-R...34/page/17 . (Looks like OT keeps losing it's posters w info. Still, read a few pages for leads.)
