  Cutting middle of AC3 losslessly
Posted by: alleycat - 2021-04-09, 08:35 PM - Forum: Audio and video editing - Replies (4)

Hi all,

I'm trying to sync a DVD track to a webrip. The DVD contains three extra frames during once scene in the middle of the movie, what's the best way to cut the audio? 

I've tried Womble, which can usually do it losslessly but for some reason, even if I select a reference for the audio and match it, it still insists on re-encoding the entire audio file. 

I've also tried delaycut, but can only see the options of cutting the file at the beginning or end, not the middle. I'm using the latest version - do I have to make two files with delay cut (one before the cut and one after the cut) and then join them? 

Finally there is eac3to, however same problem, I'm fine with cutting the beginning and end of files, but can't see any way in the help guide to cut out the middle. 

I'm sure it's simple and I'm just having a moment!

  Halloween 3: Season of the Witch (1982) [Project: Celluloid — Regrade]
Posted by: LucasGodzilla - 2021-04-08, 12:59 AM - Forum: Released - Replies (13)

So, it's been a while since I last did a regrade project, but since I've yet to receive hard drives for some other projects of mine to progress on those, I decided to rewind back to something from a while back that I stumbled on, which was an odd rip of a pan & scan transfer of Halloween 3 that showcased some very unique color timing that has never left my mind since I first stumbled onto it. As such, with a fair bit of time and effort in Resolve, Photoshop & Dr. Dre's, I would like to present you all...

PROJECT CELLULOID: Halloween III: Season Of The Witch
[Image: Project-Celluloid-Halloween3-Regrade-mkv...-04-55.jpg]

Now you all can experience the movie as how it was likely intended to have been presented back in the day with all of its heavy Cundey blues and darker, contrasty photochemical color scheme (though with the benefits of the 4K OCN transfer the Shout! BD). Still not 100% sure, but the only way to know for sure is to check out a 35mm print I guess, but I'm betting it'll look pretty much like this.

Keep in mind though, I wouldn't say it's perfect as there are some flaws that were sort of resultant of the shot-by-shot nature of the SD source's color timing, and since I decided to go at this scene-by-scene more often than not, I thought it was good enough to capture the atmosphere and intent. Furtherly, you will likely see some inconsistencies between environments at times (such as the motel nighttime exterior for example) as well as some off-looking skin tones as that's just how they looked on the SD source. Overall though, there shouldn't be anything that's deal-breaking and should provide you a fun, spooky watch—and in my opinion, it easily supercedes Shout! Factory blu-ray's vanilla flat and neutral color scheme.

In regards to what's included, I have only included subtitles and the dual-mono track provided by the Shout! Factory blu-ray. If you want to add in any of the commentary tracks or something, you're perfectly welcome to on your own as a sign of validation as to whether or not you own a legal copy of the movie since nothing has been altered runtime-wise. I did originally want to include some laserdisc track but it seems no one got to it yet unfortunately, but odds are the day one does get released, it'd probably easily sync up with this regrade as well.

If you would like a copy, shoot me a PM and I'll see what I can do! I'm not sure how long I can keep it uploaded since I will have to eventually make room for other projects, so if you want it, I recommend you get it now.

On a brief tangential note though, cause I'm curious about this possibly loaded question: How do y'all even feel about this black-sheep of a movie?

Just registered... I got a mono soundtrack audio of the film Vertigo, and it sounds really great, so I'm here to see if I can find more for my loved films.

I've been a movie fan since I was a teenager; I have films from laserdisc to blu ray; I would like to rediscover the versions of movies seen on TV (for example - open matte version) or hear the unmodified audio versions. I'm excited about the work done by the members of your forum.

  Man of Steel - Resaturated
Posted by: Franky - 2021-04-06, 02:21 PM - Forum: In progress - Replies (1)

While working on my version of Zack Snyder's Justice League, I thought I'd give the same treatment to Man of Steel.

Here's my current version (original on top, my version below):

  Zack Snyder's Justice League Ultimate Edition
Posted by: franzkfk - 2021-04-04, 10:47 PM - Forum: In progress - Replies (1)


(I've posted this into an improper subforum so I am going to make right one this time, sorry -> new info at the end of this post)

new member here which already helped a little bit with one project of member LucasGodzilla.
I hope you will welcome me with open arms: )


I guess you've already heard about Zack Snyder's Justice League.
I was fighting for the project from the beginning but I was very surprised how it panned out.
Zack Snyder originally worked with Chris Terrio on a more serious and darker movie. The original one was unfortunately scrapped and 30% of original screenplay was rewrote and some never went to production. Zack Snyder said that this cut is the closest thing of what we could have get but it is still a "new thing" (this version is totally new edit from an assembly cut) and this cut on HBO Max is already lighthearted by the WarnerBros. and Geoff Johns who intervened and revisioned the screenplay that went to production (unfortunately). 
I thought that when Zack was fighting for his original vision it was more on par with Man of Steel and Batman v Superman which were - in my opinion - mature movies.
Long story short I've took grey edition, edited the Tunnel Battle Scene and called it Ultimate Edition. Please keep in mind that this is just a rough preview with minor tweaks.

This particular scene:
- new framing and lot of edits
- better pacing: cut out extension scenes (some of them might be repurposed); cut out corny lines
- Alfred's assuming control of the Nightcrawler will be probably addressed before action sequence
- intention of the new edit is to set more serious tone, evoke exhausting fight scene which makes an impression of a scarier opponent in Steppenwolf
- rest of the film will be edited in similar spirit: more serious in line with Man of Steel and Batman v Superman Ultimate Edition

Zack Snyder's Justice League Ultimate Edition
Tunnel Battle Scene

I will also cut unnecessary expositions like the one with Wonder Woman in London which - in my opinion - doesn't make sense.
Gonna fix some illogical issues like the scene where Clark meets Alfred. In the HBO Max version Clark lands very fast close to Alfred and makes a noise which Alfred should register.

Here is the scene


But in the original version Clark lands gently that is why Alfred register Clark only when he's closer to him.

You can see the original version here


I will probably repurpose deleted scenes from Blu-Ray and I might use some shots from Whedon version too If necessary (only Snyder's shots). That is why I've decided to do only grey/b&w version. But it is also of an inconsistent color grading in HBO Max version. Can't show you proof but there are two scenes I've encountered that shows it. When Batman is on daylight during Clark's resurrection. In some shots he's got grey tones on his suit in others there are blueish. In the same sequence the grass behind Lois is sometimes greener and sometimes greyish. 

Hope you like it.
Questions and opinions are welcome: )

-------------------------new info-----------------------------

So I've decided to make both color and black&white versions. First will be without new framing and after editing process and minor tweaks I will do the reframing.
Since I am going for a few VFX changes I might repair the color grading too. The VFX changes going to be a surprise. Just a three minor tweaks with a little bit help of editing scissors. I am willing to spend some money on it but we'll see ... green; )

I have put together first 49 minutes with minor sound tweaks and few edit tricks. 
I would like to show you rough cut without major narrative line - space soap opera (DeSaad, deeper Steppenwolf motivation and history lesson).
As I've said before this new cut is aiming for a more dramatical movie as we've seen in Man of Steel and Batman v Superman.
Steppenwolf will be more sinister (without corny lines). The viewer will be focused more on main protagonists and their inner struggles.
When I upload it somewhere I will post it ...

  De-logo help needed
Posted by: Hitcher - 2021-04-04, 07:14 PM - Forum: Requests, proposals, help - No Replies

I'm working on a Deja Vu open matte using 2 sources (WEB-DL and HDTV) but need help removing the HDTV logo from the opening sequence to replace the foreign language one on the WEB-DL.

The HDTV clip has been de-interlaced and converted to 24fps to match the WEB-DL clip. I also have an all black screenshot with the logo and I've made a mask that should work. Just need a guru to work their magic on them please.

Link to clips - https://mega.nz/folder/6u4gUbiI#FBJ1Be9bEvNUykOPvCW3Hw

Thanks in advance.

Well... didn't expect a Pacific Rim universe merged with the MonsterVerse, but it happened in this flick.

Expectations were high, and weren't fullfilled completely, so: "not that bad"? "nice"? "meh"?
