Glad I wasn't the only one getting fanres withdrawal symptoms

LOL! Big Grin

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.
avatar
Hello xchullit, welcome!

Hi !

Hey! Someone's got The Godfather in 35mm for sale! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/35MM-FEATURE-...SwYxBaN8jl
avatar
Deinterlacing, I suppose.
avatar
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
avatar
@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.
avatar
no problem, im trying to think of a solution, so far havent got a good one
avatar
@OogieBoogie. Yes bud i understand. it makes sense for these rules to be implimented It just leaves people like myself behind. I'll honor my commitment to the rules but it might mean me having to go without because of my curcumstances. Thank you for joining the conversation there.
avatar
like i said to sporv here, i have their harry potter fanres for a long time, i seed for months and years, but not everyone is like me and there arent enough of us to keep everything going, so things get lost unless you implement tougher systems
avatar
i think i've already seen it bud. i do get where you are coming from just from the start everything we have implemented has been with one goal, long term torrent retention, using both prevention and cure methods to try and help things along. honestly, what is the point of another site that cant keep anything seeded?
avatar
@FrankT and OogieBoogie. Ive just posted a topic https://blutopia.xyz/community/topic/hit...estion.904 if you would both like to contribute Smile
avatar
Just made a note of that on the Four Is Death page on TV Tropes.
avatar
urgh, yeah, well download 4, hnr on 4 will get you banned just about everywhere bud
avatar
the rules arent hard there, seed anything you grab for 7 days, not much more to it than that
avatar
what did you do?
avatar
Crap! I've got banned from downloading any more from Blue-topia.
avatar
Nuke's blur node does it correctly
avatar
maybe gaussianblur does it as well!
avatar
@spoRv blur() does, not sure about other filters.
avatar
last year they dropped the price of the hp bd boxsets, now we have the UHD, they just dropped the price on LOTR boxsets, i can get the theatrical trilogy for 8 quid from amazon atm
avatar
and if what happened last year is anything to go by, we may be seeing UHD's of LOTR's from Warner at the end of the year
avatar
think it makes sense, must admit i am mighty tempted to dip into UHD, they have some stuff I love now, 13 Hours, Harry Potter, Lone Survivor and Serenity
avatar
Let's wait!
avatar
it happens, they'll just stick out a repack
avatar
Sad
avatar
i asked at blu, but that is the right test, if they have compliant hardware and it fails the same way both times, my guess is the source is buggared
avatar
Waiting for further feedbacks, though!
avatar
just some feedback elsewhere, seems like they tried all 8 and 6 work, those 2 no, he's redownloading them again in case the error is that side
avatar
Really? NOOOOOO! (new DV style scream) Why?
avatar
sporv, just in case you are planning on dling the UHD versions of HP, there's a possibility that Azkaban and Goblet of Fire could both have broken audio/DTS X
avatar
@Valeyard: interesting info! I wonder, does avisynth average the colors in the right way? (put the "thinking" emoticon here, we need it!!!)
avatar
My fullest approval! The only (good) difference I see before the pre-Disney era is that good old Lucas wasn't afraid to tell new stories.
avatar
RooBee: no offense taken any wise... Big Grin it is more like that I also feel not so well with Disney taking the universe, but I also always assume that it even could be worse. The bad thing somehow is that Star Wars evolved from three great movies into a marketing franchise, but that is not Disney's fault, they just jumped the already running train... Star Wars was some marketing franchise already before Disney.
avatar
Brown, I was just kidding. Speaking for myself, as a huge Star Wars fan I was disappointed by the way Disney did went with the franchise. Nonetheless the fanfare will give you goosebumpfs and I hope you enjoy the rest of the movie as well Smile
avatar
My first set of editing laptop picks is up in the General Discussions section. BTW spoiler alert: the reason why I picked the Razer Blade Pro as my ideal god-tier editing laptop can be summed up in three words: THX.
avatar
I believe most thing why I really want to see it theatrically, is because of the iconic Star Wars Music with the crawl at the beginning... Smile
avatar
I know that I do not have to, but I want, just did not find the time, yet.
avatar
Actually, you don't have to.
avatar
I did not watch the new star wars Movie, yet.
avatar
Thats very interesting - thanks!
avatar
Why digital blurring often looks wrong, and how to do it correctly: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LKnqECcg6Gw
avatar
Well they need to get their ass to the theatre asap! X D
avatar
hush hush... avoid spoilers, please... maybe someone still has to watch it! Wink
avatar
Me too. 2 times isn't enough
avatar
I do need to go see it again, just because.
avatar
Especially watching him lift his thumb to bring down the lightening ... it was epic.
avatar
Yeah, it was my favorite part.
avatar
"Ahh Skywalker... still looking off in to the horizon"
avatar
His whole exchange with Luke literally brought me to tears (one of many times in the movie that did)
avatar
Yoda's quote about failure being the best teacher is really great.
avatar
The film isn't even saying that (as killing the past is reckless and prevents learning). It's saying have respect, but not be so slavish that you don't see the flaws and failures for what came before. Don't let it bind you to a destiny, and take what inspiration you can.
avatar
A lot of ppl are taking that Ren quote as being the thesis of the film.
