@ Evit -- How about insect politics? ... "Insects don't have politics. They're very brutal. No compassion, no compromise." (The Fly) ... Are you SURE we can afford to be without politics? Woo
avatar
Oh. Thanks for reminding me. I think I remember the practical reason why I should (i.e. it tends to get lost easily if posted to the shoutbox).
avatar
(PS: no politics allowed on FanRes)
avatar
Why are you posting these information in the shoutbox, Koopa? Leave project updates and announcements to the appropriate sections. Shoutbox is for chit-chat and ripping each other's hair over politics. Thank you
avatar
As for another of my projects, a minor update on Diabolik. I'm working on the subs for the 1992 English dub, which was released on VHS and laser videodisc.
avatar
Course, in the final version I might have to consider using a deblocker, but we'll cross that bridge when we get there.
avatar
Speaking of which, I'm currently encoding a 1080p test of the pilot opening I'll be using unless and until a better-looking version of the original pilot opening, without footage from the pilot itself, shows up somewhere (garbage in, garbage out, after all).
avatar
And like I said on my Inspector Gadget thread, I'll be doing everything for DVDs with DVDStyler, though I've not yet selected a Blu-ray authoring software, or else I've forgotten which one I was planning to use.
avatar
Come February 2, I'll have almost my entire Spring slate ready for formal announcement, in light of which I'll be one of Punxsutawney Phil's Phaithful Phollowers this year for sure! Big Grin

I don't know!

How to survive a day without WhatsApp? Woo

Technically it's been a heatwave here as well, on Friday at 3PM I measured the tempreature in direct sun at 44°C, the official tempreature for that day was 38° which is about what I measured in the shade. My sheets dried completely in about an hour in full shade.
avatar
So hot here, and now the fires have begun.
avatar
On myspleen IIRC
avatar
Anyone know where to get some samples of good quality Laserdisc rips? Testing a scanline shader and want to see how it looks Smile

Happy Happy Happy

Thanks for sorting out the problem spoRv. Wink
avatar
Indeed, now it works! Big Grin
avatar
Now it opens, but do not allow image uploading, nor sign up... it happened few other times lately, but after hours, it was ok, so, let's wait!
avatar
Is PostImage not working? Because I couldn't upload my Blu-ray cover of THX-1138 to grab the image link for some strange reason.
avatar
Tonight (1/18), I'm going to start uploading trailers for my projects onto their threads, beginning with Fistful of Dollars. Needless to say, they'll look better on the Special Features sections.
avatar
Some blame me already BT ... lol, I'm good. Smile
avatar
@ Jetrell Fo -- With GL, there is no "canon" 'cause he keeps changing it. Big Grin This bit is from the comic book series, apparently under Disney. Disney is a bit more stable but, then again, they do have their "Song Of The South".
avatar
It's Ying-Yang ... only so don't root for any one side. To do so will put The Force out of balance! Then (as succinctly put by Lt. Rozanov) "there is World War III, and every body is blaming YOU!" Woo
avatar
Smile Jedi... Sith... Same singe, different flavor... Big Grin
avatar
That is what I was thinking of, sorry.

RE: Jedi Temple / Rebel Base: "The giant temples on the Yavin 4 moon are said to have been built ages ago by the Massassi to worship Naga Sadow, a Sith Lord who had enslaved and mutated the Massassi using Sith Alchemy." - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yavin#Expanded_universe
avatar
Mr. Whitall is already burning in Hell for his mistake, but Jessica Falkholt just made it into Heaven.
avatar
I think that depends on the sources... It is the Rebel Base, build in an old temple... http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Great_Temple_(Yavin_4) at least according to that "source" Big Grin
avatar
My bad, I always thought for some reason, that the base on Yavin was an old Jedi Temple. My bad.
avatar
Anyway, snips aside, which do you think matches the original colors best? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aCUOLFvXnyM
avatar
Interesting to note, not only is the foliage not the original either, that's not even the Jedi Temple, but rather the Rebel base on Yavin.
avatar
...agree!
avatar
AH-HA!!! Happy
avatar
I have to admit ... the Bluray Jedi Temple shot is nice to see aesthetically even if it isn't the original.
avatar
Just don't tell George he's been out'ed. Big Grin BTW, in the previous Star Wars matte shot comparison, I should've added the 2nd link, for the Blu-ray added to the compare -- http://i.imgur.com/6AmjkOz.png
avatar
@BT .... that is a great article. Thanks for sharing.
avatar
Ah, yes, now I see it!
avatar
You mean the link? I just tried it again (you know these cut&paste issues Smile ) and it works, even with auto-blocking 3rd party link-code (NoScript browser addon).
avatar
Can't reach it, perhaps what's making George Lucas try to erase his own past doesn't want US to know about its methods of madness...
avatar
THX 1138 and George Lucas trying to erase HIS past ? Could it be ... Mind Control ... http://www.standbyformindcontrol.com/201...-his-past/

Wow, finally back online. The host was doing a server migration apparently
avatar
He was as much a danger to himself as to the community, mind. Just goes to show just how dangerous disqualified driving is.
avatar
@Valeyard After reading the article, I'm convinced that if he'd been kept in jail like he was supposed to this Whitall character might still be alive today.
avatar
@IcePrick my Made In Hong Kong PAL VHS tapes all do this. My PCI capture card cannot lock on to the signal for more that a second, even with a DVD recorder acting as TBC. I just get snow. My USB capture device will accept the signal but I get the chroma noise. I think it's something to do with the signal on the tape being out of spec
avatar
Oh boy, here come the politics. I'm gonna keep my mouth shut, lol.
avatar
Jessica Falkholt taken off life support: https://thenewdaily.com.au/news/state/ns...pport-off/ Sound to me like Mr. Whitall should have been kept in gaol where he belonged for the safety of the community.
avatar
Then I would guess it's some form of copy protection, and the reason it only appears on one capture device is because the other one has a TBC (time base corrector) or something similar. This is a wild guess, but it is a possibility I think
avatar
@TomArrow @zoidberg Yes it's a prerecorded tape. I don't recall these showing up on a TV, but I can check again to make sure. The error does occur on other tapes, but it seems to vary from tape to tape.
avatar
xchulilt, I will not be saying your name.
avatar
@IcePrick that's interesting - do they show up on a TV? Like zoidberg said - if its a prerecorded videotape maybe it's that scrambly copy protection - does the error occur with other tapes?

sry guys Smile ..here is 100% 35mm cell https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sQgd6MccwZc
avatar
@Iceprick I think it's something to do with the chroma subcarrier. Is this a prerecorded videotape?
avatar
@TomArrow These errors are consistently present with varying intensity. The weird thing is, they only show up on one of my capture devices but not the other.
avatar
And IF anyone would have that precious item of desire, it would be wise to consider Jetrell Fo hint...
avatar
But to answer your question: IF anyone would have said workprint, there would be any hints regarding that in any of the Terminator 2 discussions. So I assuming the answer is: No one has said T2 Version.
avatar
https://forum.fanres.com/forum-5.html Maybe introducing yourself before you start asking for things would be a good idea. There is a basic etiquette here and we like to keep that going. Welcome to the site xchulilt, I hope you enjoy your stay.
avatar
does anyone have T2 workprint ?
avatar
Yeah I don't remember seeing that kind of chroma errors, other than maybe in single frames when there was some tape problem or when I recorded something over something else. Is it a constant error? Maybe your VHS player has some badly aligned or dirty heads or something that cause this issue (I'm not an expert). Either way, I think digitally filtering it may be difficult or more effort than its worth
avatar
I'm not talking about the interlacing. I'm talking about the chroma noise (or what ever kind of noise that is). Sorry for not making myself clear.
avatar
@ IcePrick -- it's a standard interlaced image (see the separate EVEN and ODD fields - https://s10.postimg.cc/43o0nvb4p/interla...fields.gif). Just de-interlace the video from 30 fps to 24 fps.

Hello xchullit, welcome!

Hi !

Hey! Someone's got The Godfather in 35mm for sale! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/35MM-FEATURE-...SwYxBaN8jl

Deinterlacing, I suppose.

What is the best way to remove artifacts like this from VHS captures? http://images2.imagebam.com/01/b9/ff/359...245783.png (Look at the sky and the sides of the road).
avatar
Thx, a lot!
avatar
@Stamper I sent you a PM with my limited knowledge. Big Grin
avatar
Tom can you pm me with suggestions? THX
avatar
Ah okay. Good to know, thanks OogieBoogie
avatar
yes bud, exactly to the first part and yes you could do the second as well but one of the other benefits of seedboxes is that there would be nowhere near as much upload/download traffic off your personal line
avatar
So the seedbox hosts the files and you DL it from the seedbox? I suppose another option would be to have a low power rig at home purely for seeding 24/7
avatar
I have a $5/mo seedbox and I love it
avatar
Would a seedbox be a good solution? Never tried one.
avatar
And you wonder why I don't always agree with the way you handle things even though I have NO issue with you.
avatar
Anyone trying to tell you that I did that would be a liar. My email address is the same one I used for Blurg and the same one I use here. Sad
avatar
You can't pm me instead of accusing me of something false in public?
avatar
Jetrell Fo use a better email next time if your trying to make duplicate trolling accounts

@spoRv: No, not that old-school fullscreen, but borderless 1.78:1
avatar
Is Total Recall open matte?
avatar
That's great, disco4000! Fullscreen = 4:3?!? Big Grin
avatar
What a movie sunday alone with the kids: SyFy just gave me a triple feature with Spaceballs, Men in Black and Total Recall in beautiful grainy fullscreen, now TNT is rounding it up with The Untouchables, followed by Schindlers List, Platoon and Departed. Capping them all...
avatar
So no e-mail is sent out when you get a warning in Blutopia?
avatar
That's funny as hell MrBrown. Smile

@Jetrell Fo: I found the "i" in TEAM.. Big Grin https://i.imgur.com/XRrbi3P.png (before anyone asks: that's a joke I pull very often, when someone uses this proverb, and it is certainly NOT directed regarding ANY user of this forum.)
avatar
@Commodore, the only solution is for you to take the hit and keep seeding there, the rules just don't offer regular users much room unless you are higher on the food chain. If I was still a member I'd toss some of my BON your way to help you out. EClara helped me out and I would just give BON to others who might need it to stay afloat. There is no "I" in team, ya know. LOL
avatar
Smile It's not your problem to solve good sir. Being involved in the dialogue is more than enough.
