Mighty Max (Cartoon 1993–1995)
Epic cartoon which is not yet released on DVD... But...

Small clip with TCR - property of studiocanal

Quote from Studiocanal:
We do have Home video rights for this series in the USA.

With some ''Magic'' it finally could be out.....

Before the rights for this show was all messed up, and even at that time, Shout Factory couldn't get them.

and what is available for now are pooooor vhs Rip - dcoy complete avi
Mighty Max better quality S01 (incomplete) mkv - 2, 3, 8, and 12 are missing (spleen)

And another fella:
Mighty Max Restoration Project
His approach to restore them is wrong [heavily filtered] - not tasteful at all, too bad.

  Getting Two Audio Files to Sync
Posted by: Lio - 2019-11-12, 04:48 AM - Forum: Audio and video editing - Replies (3)

Okay, here's a tricky one. I have two copies of the same music recording from Harry Potter 3. One copy has a different instrument mixed in that I'd like to isolate as much as possible. To do that I first need to line the two recordings up pretty much exactly. The mixing between the two is different so comparing the waveforms isn't really an option.
After playing with it the past couple of days in Audacity, I've gotten it very close to syncing (I lined it up via an audio glitch about 21 seconds in) but am just off by a little. I opened my result up in RX7 and made an interesting discovery:

You can see there's some sort of filter-sweep type thing. The shape of it confuses me. Does this mean that one of the files is running slightly faster than the other, and that the area 20 seconds in is where the two files are "meeting" before going out of sync again?

I can PM anyone the Audacity file to anyone who's interested, or I can post it here if that's allowed. Thanks for any insight.

  License to Drive & Johnny Be Good (Laserdisc)
Posted by: gracie1979 - 2019-11-11, 06:23 PM - Forum: Requests, proposals, help - Replies (8)


Does anyone have a laserdisc rip of these two films? License to Drive had some alternate music and added dialogue. Johnny Be Good has been ripped apart ever since they changed it back to a PG-13 rating cutting out more of the strip club scene and omitting the entire frat house scene.

  Highlander - The French Theatrical Cut - Preservation
Posted by: HippieDalek - 2019-11-09, 11:08 PM - Forum: Released - Replies (11)

After my recent Highlander 2 European Cut preservation, and williarob's excellent Highlander US Theatrical preservation, I thought I'd have a go at bringing the often overlooked French Theatrical Cut of the original Highlander into the world of HD...and English!

Released just a few weeks after the US Theatrical Cut, the French Theatrical version is very similar; most of the cuts made to the US version are here, but it's already a little closer to the full length European Cut which would be released a few months later. The extra wrestling shots and the Bedsoe scene have already gone by this version, and many of the shots have been trimmed or extended by a few frames here and there. The biggest change in comparison to the US Cut is that this version retains the WWII flashback sequence, so Rachel's character makes a bit more sense here. This also features the first appearance of the "enhanced" final quickening which features different effects to the US Theatrical Cut. This would go on to be the version seen in all later cuts of the film. 

This cut can still be bought in France on DVD, and as far as I know has never gone out of print, but it has only ever been available in Standard Definition and dubbed into French.

For this preservation I used the video from the 30th Anniversary Blu Ray, and the audio from the US Theatrical Cut laserdisc to recreate this version in full HD. I used the most recent French DVD as a guide for both the editing and the audio. Obviously English language audio has never existed for this cut, but the US audio is almost identical so it fits quite well.

I also used the original UK Blu Ray to patch the opening shot of the wrestlers walking through the tunnel (this has been trimmed by 9 frames on the 30th Anniversary Blu Ray), and upscaled the end credits from the French DVD (both the US and French Cut feature small differences in the end credits in comparison to the European Cut). I also used the French DVD to patch a small piece of missing audio from the US Theatrical Cut.

I've included the original French audio on a second track. It may be of interest to some as it features Christopher Lambert dubbing himself back into his native language.

This is more of a curiosity for the hardcore Highlander film, but I hope some of you enjoy it. PM me for the link.

  FCPX acting weird in resolve round trip! 1 frame ahead
Posted by: Stamper - 2019-11-09, 10:46 AM - Forum: Audio and video editing - No Replies

Hey guys,

I need your help on a project. I round trip to Resolve, and use FCPX for audio + video matching as I find it easier.

However, my timeline on a particular project which is 23.976, is now acting funny.

Remember when you slide across your shots, the slider warns you with a mark on the very last frame of a shot that this is the last frame, then when you move the slider to the next shot, the slider also tells you with a mark this is the beginning of a shot or first frame?

Well, suddenly, the slider tells me it's the end of a shot at the beginning of the next one.

And visually, all the shots have moved one frame ahead, despite the cuts being the exact same.

This happened after FCPX warned me there was a problem with the TC coming from Resolve. Something to do with the TC starting at 1:00:00:00 instead of 0:00:00:00.

Now, I'm not sure if my audio is in sync or one frame delayed.

This affects the whole timeline, including the original edit I kept as reference, that never went trough resolve.

The first shot starts in sync, but when it ends, there is an empty frame flashing at the beginning of the next shot, even though I never moved the shot. Then everything is delayed one frame.

My save in Resolve, has no such problem, but shows one frame difference from the FCPX one.

I browsed online to no avail. Someone told me it has something to do with 23.976 which had one frame at the end of a timeline?

Just to be clear, in the edit, the end of one shot frame is showing the beginning of the next shot, even though the content is not related visually as it's a fan edit.

Thanks if anyone can help.

  The Wizard of Oz (1939) MGM DVD Mono
Posted by: SpookyDollhouse - 2019-11-08, 04:31 PM - Forum: Released - Replies (5)

Hey all! With WB's release of Wizard of Oz on UHD I and others were disappointed they've completely dropped the original mono audio with no plans to make it available again. I did some digging and discovered the very first 1998 MGM DVD was the last release to have it in unaltered form. I would have went with the Laserdisc but I don't have the means to capture the audio, so this was the next best thing.

[Image: 51GYW80GAJL._SY445_.jpg]

I've ripped the track encoded as a lossless 24-bit FLAC file and synced it to the 4k UHD. All it needed was lining-up and appropriate extra silence added to beginning and end. Thankfully it was that easy!

Upped to Dropbox, PM me for links.

  Dr No, FRWL and Goldfinger Criterion Laserdisc Restorations
Posted by: alleycat - 2019-11-05, 05:50 PM - Forum: Requests, proposals, help - Replies (20)

My next few projects will be restorations of the Criterion Laserdiscs of the first three Bond movies. I already have the laserdisc audio, the commentary and effects tracks and the extra features that were on the LD's, plus I've got the chapter timings so can present them with original Criterion chapter stops. 

One issue I am running into on this is this opening logos, the LD uses the MGM UA communications logo followed by the United Artists logo, whereas the Blu Ray uses the MGM roaring lion. The problem is the commentary track starts straight away, so to make it sync with the HD picture would require adding a black screen at the beginning of the blu ray or cutting off part of the commentary - neither of which I would like to do.

The ideal way would be to restore the original opening credits to the Blu Ray version - does anyone off the top of their head know of a blu ray/HDTV that uses the original MGM UA / United Artists opening logos? I only have the newest James Bond blu ray box set myself. 

Finally I wondered if anyone has already done a colour corrected version of these movies?

  The Fifth Element full screen R1 DVD
Posted by: drngr - 2019-11-05, 08:29 AM - Forum: Requests, proposals, help - Replies (5)

The original R1 release was a flipper with widescreen on Side A and fullscreen 4:3 on Side B.

I tried and failed to buy one off eBay by purchasing based on UPC. It turns out that they re-used the same UPC for the 2007 HD remastered DVD that is widescreen-only.

Finding someone who will ship outside the US for a reasonable cost is also an issue.

Does anyone here still own this old release?

  Enter the Dragon Uncut edition?
Posted by: Moiisty - 2019-11-04, 10:20 AM - Forum: Requests, proposals, help - Replies (1)

I was wondering if the ex rental version of Enter the Dragon was uncut....... If so, I could buy it sometime in the future (ik someone who is selling it) and capture it and upload it and we could combine the rip with possible other versions because i know ronster at originaltrilogy is making a definitive version but he hasn't posted anything for a while.

The photo is from the seller
