Thanks

Sure
avatar
Can you post a link to the reddit thread you talked about?
avatar
Dont worry Your post wasn't confusing
avatar
Jetrell Fo I just seen your previous shout to me and no thats not why I came here. The reason I came here was because I fortunately stumbled across spoRv's Alien IMAX Fundemental cut on AvP Galaxy which led me to here. Back to Blutopia, I wasnt aware of this tracker until lastnight so I noticed a few people chatting on here and thought to myself "you dont ask, you dont get".
avatar
Apparently my post was confusing. The point is this is not the place to come requesting Blutopia invites right out of the gate and if someone told you it was they were wrong.
avatar
No worries Jetrell Fo you dont need to explain to me what private trackers are ive been using them for sharing the past 9 years
avatar
Blutopia doesn't just hand out invites to everyone including it's own members. They aren't a free leech site either. Their members are dedicated and there are ratio rules.
avatar
Yeah sorry I found an Invite thread on Reddit
avatar
I would suggest to let these invite requesting and possible fulfilling be handled someplace else... There are enough such thing sharing communities...
avatar
Closer .... is that all you came here for, an invite to another site?
avatar
What's that?
avatar
Agree, but maybe we should start a thread named "request a blutopia invite here", or something like that... it seems much needed!
avatar
No, this is not the best place to ask.
avatar
Not sure if this is best place to ask but anyone here have an ivitation to blutopia?
avatar
@Feallan- Yep, the prequels at least had a story and were kid-friendly for the most part. Ep7 & R1 have almost no redeeming qualities IMO.
avatar
Definitely looks a hell of a lot more organic, at least.
avatar
Well, it just proves what you can do with actual film stock.
avatar
Nope, the JJA-type-of-flares, I suspect! And don't forget random shaking camera movements and out-of-focus-just-for-the-sake-of-it! Happy
avatar
Ah yes, the infamous CinemaScope lens flares.
avatar
Well... Also to a more lens flared side of the force... Sad
avatar
Well, that's your opinion... I liked Episode 7 more than 1-3... I also liked Rogue One... And after what Ja did with Star Trek I also think that he is capable of bringing Star Wars onto a darker and mature side... Yes Episode 7 was quite the same story overall as episode 4, but on the other hand: After the franchise shatters Episodes 1-3 did left, he never had a good fundament, so I see the copy and paste more like the try of building a base for upcoming stories...
avatar
There's not much to wait for. New Star Wars is trash and it doesn't even matter who directs it. The two movies they've done so far are just soulless checkbox-ticking cashgrabs, don't expect Ep 8 or 9 to be any better.
avatar
I am a wait and see person so I don't have anything to contribute to this "debate" about Star Wars and it's "directors".
avatar
The fiction of Star Wars has so much possibilites regarding creative art, story telling and interesting new characters. And all we're getting until this point is a copy-and-pasted OT. I dislike the PT too, yes. But Lucas was brave enough trying to tell a new story. He was just a messy director / dialogue writer.
avatar
I'll leave this tweet by Pixelated Boat here: https://twitter.com/pixelatedboat/status...5806100480. As crazy is it sounds, I pretty much completely agree with it.
avatar
Well, at least hardly any of the kid-friendly tone, if that, has carried over from the prequels.
avatar
Bleech. I didn't like TFA and I think J.J. is pretty illsuited for Star Wars overall. The way Disney has been handling the franchise doesn't give me much confidence.
avatar
Why "help"? He's a good (very good? fair? surely not bad) director, and it would be difficult to repeat the "success" of the prequels, so...
avatar
J.J. Abrams is the "new" director for Episode IX... help!
avatar
Thanks Dad Wink
avatar
Ok
avatar
Done and done.
avatar
Koopa: it seems interesting... why don't you start a thread about this?
avatar
Jetrell: good boy! Big Grin
avatar
Among other things, I'll try to restore as much footage to the first one as I can, using techniques similar to those used for the restorations of A Star Is Born (the one with Judy Garland), Bedknobs and Broomsticks, and Superman II.
avatar
Well, anyway, I might do a 1080p restoration of the first five films in the Land Before Time series.
avatar
Yes Dad ... Tongue
avatar
Okay, you kids, be good.... Happy
avatar
Not weird at all, shooting film for commercials and mixing with video content at 60i is very common in all areas of production. Try Double IVTC, one for top field, one for bottom field and interweave the two for 59.94fps output.
avatar
Yeah, apparently, the games are presented at 30 fps, and the miscellaneous graphics stuff tends to vary between 24 fps, 30 fps, and 60 fps for some reason.
avatar
Isn't it kinda weird for them to alternate like that?
avatar
Apparently, the live-action content in those N64 promo videos was all done at film framerate.
avatar
For example, presently I'm working on a little side project involving inverse telecine and an old N64 promotional video issued by Nintendo Power--specifically, for Diddy Kong Racing, on November 4, 1997. I've already completed the first second of footage.
avatar
Of course, there was no need for anything further than my original comment, you and SW chose to voice your opinions. Again, duly noted. I'm not angry at anyone, I am just more open than some, and there's nothing wrong with that. It doesn't break any rules as long as I keep my words civil. I have done that. Now, moving on to better discussions .... Smile
avatar
(and my stupid Autocowrecktion just made believe to believer...)
avatar
@Jetrell: for the sake of all, we shall stop here... We both stated our points of view... We both may take some insights from the points of view of the other... We have different points of view... That's perfectly fine... I believer digging further could end up on a personal level of discussion, that we both neither need nor want...
avatar
Stay safe SkywalkerFan01!
avatar
SkywalkerFan01 ... stay safe and watch your tail down there. Our thoughts are with all of you caught in those storms. Smile
avatar
^^^^I will only say this MrBrown. While I was a member there I took crap for not having thicker skin so If members from there come here and see a post of mine they disagree with ... then my conclusion would be that their skin is no thicker than mine at times and there should be no reason to judge another for the same thing. They can defend themselves here and there. I cannot and no-one there would defend me when things are said. I blow off steam ocasionally. People that know "me" know this. That is all it is.
avatar
For real, Sky, keep us posted as you are able....
avatar
Stay safe SkywalkerFan01.
avatar
Yeah... I live in central Florida. That thing's heading right towards us. Staying with some family instead of our current residence since they have a brick house. Problem is we live in a tin can of a mobile home, so we might be homeless in 2-3 days, depending on how bad the storm is. Only time will tell.
avatar
Holy f* shit! O.O Irma has almost the size of Germany... Sad
avatar
So my rant is not against you as a person, or your personal opinion. It is "just" about the way not few people, in this case: you, state their personal opinion. I have very good personal friends (offline friends in the surrounding) that tend to state their opinion the same way: as a "fact", and I always get aggressive about such things, because it is an opinion, not a fact... But the way it is expressed just sound degrading and insulting...
avatar
I don't even have a hard feeling of your opinion regarding OT. If I would be in your shoes, I might have that also, so how can I condemn your feeling and opinion? I cannot. And, maybe with what I read month ago the political the connection was easily made, but not necessarily correct, but if one person make that connection, it is not unlikely that others may do so as well.
avatar
Sad
avatar
I could go further, but for my side I have made all needed statements... I don't need to dig further... I tried to be as polite as possible due to the fact that English is not my native language, and in school I always had bad grades in English language education. Learning languages is just not my cup of tea. It is just up to... In this case you, if you want to dig further, or if you stay at the point reading my critics regarding the way you said something, in the back lights of previous rants and discussions. But if you want to dig further, I suggest it is nothing for the Shoutbox... Just one note: for me it is nothing personal about or against you... If you still think so: Sorry, but that is up to you.
avatar
You started something.
avatar
But for now let's all hope for the persons in the way of Irma... My best wishes with everybody down there...
avatar
I also don't want to start a a fight... So I tried to formulate my feelings as neutral as possible. It was nothing personal meant.. Just the feel of a political vibre in the tone of your comment.. If I ever would have some direct personal issues, I would address them personal... My post was directly to the way you expressed your personal antics against a group of persons in the way you did.
avatar
@MrBrown, there was NO political message or political motivation. Your opinion on my person is duly noted and filed. If you have anything further about me you'd like to make noise about please send me a pm.
avatar
I edited another post yet again to end the complaints. Are we all better now? Sad
avatar
Guys, didn't want to start a fight... just wanted to know how member "status" works on OT, and eventually compare those to our own, that's all!
avatar
Due to the fact that you seem to be mostly bewildered by the major political points of view (and handling that their way), your "fair statement" could easily be seen as a kind of "political motivated outburst", and just while we agreed not to start political discussions, to avoid unnecessary angry discussions, does not imply that everybody shares your point of view in certain things. So, what you call a fair statement, could also be seen as a rude political motivated punch to the guts, even if not directly refer political motivations...
avatar
LOL. It was not a pot shot. It's a fair statement.
avatar
Never miss an opportunity to take a pot shot. Anyway, I think it's a placeholder for a new feature not yet implemented.
avatar
Andrea, you've got a pm, lol. Wink
avatar
Tongue
avatar
Andrea, send me a pm.
avatar
I wonder, how a member on OT that registered ten days ago, with just 8 posts, could be considered "trusted members"? How does it work?
avatar
Okay ... mystery almost totally sorted. SVD's upload comes from rutorrent ... the artwork however comes from our project here.
avatar
or maybe an approved list might be easier, i honestly have no idea how many projects you guys have done, though i respect the work i dont like all the films so i only go after the ones i like
avatar
just an idea, maybe make a list of the projects you dont want shared there, or not yet at least, at least that way admins have a list that they know are no no's
avatar
if i wasnt here i wouldnt have known that
avatar
no, but the only reason i knew his wishes was because sporv invited me here and i saw his thread
avatar
You respected his wishes, that's cool, not everyone does.
avatar
i have jerryshadoe's last of the mohicans, i could have shared that whenever i wanted, had it since old blu days, but i saw he has something written in his thread and would prefer to get permission or not as the case may be
avatar
man, i get that i really do, but i doubt he did that with malintent, like i upped 2 fanres and all i did was cp the descriptions from spleen because i was so excited to be able to share them, i was making no attempt to claim it as my own, but what i copy pasted was written in the first person, honest mistakes can happen
avatar
People here that worked on it worked very hard ... the project wasn't finished either. None of us here, that I know of, gave the go.
avatar
If you read comment section of said torrent I've asked that Shane take it down. I sent him a pm as well as reporting the torrent.
avatar
i get why you would be peeved that someone stole credit for your work, if that indeed si what it is, i say it taht way as i have no idea, but why not just send a quick message to blucrew, either asking for it to be removed if it is not supposed to be there, or for it to be retagged/credited to those who deserve it
avatar
Oh. Well, that name doesn't ring a bell to me in any case, even if I was an admin, which, regretfully, I'm not. But whichever admin does show up, I just hope he can deal with them scalpers.
avatar
Does this release group, Crusader3000-NewAge, sound familiar to anyone? Anyone know it or any of it's members?
avatar
I believe a project from here was stolen and posted to Blutopia.
avatar
I was hoping one of our admin was here.
avatar
Anyway, is there any real guide on audio track restoration/(up)conversion? Because I could use some help in prepping the LPCM tracks for the BD version of my Computer Chronicles restoration, among other things.
avatar
I am.
avatar
Anyone around?
avatar
Hint: Great Grandma Koopa and her alleged speed are both referred to if you lose to Koopa the Quick in the German version of Super Mario 64.
avatar
Never mind, I just came up with some hilarious text that includes an Easter egg for German SM64 players.
avatar
When I start work on my projects, how should I word the warning screens on them?
avatar
LOL@ BronzeTitan
avatar
I'M SOLD!! Forget the new Blu-ray! Where's the USED VHS?!
avatar
avatar
Someone on Blu-ray.com said: "I wholeheartedly agree. I saw it tonight on a very large screen - the source is just outstanding in every way that is clearly transparent to the original, natural 35mm look one would expect."
avatar
avatar
I might try to see it, I'll let you know
