I've been a lurker here for a while (on and off), but followed a thread here from another forum, and thought to register.

Admittedly, I'm not talented in these matters, and perhaps thus unlikely to complete any restoration work of my own, I nevertheless enjoy reading the detailed posts, and trying to understand the great lengths that project makers here go to. It feels like that restoration of this sort is a real labour of love.

Anyway, I look forward to contributing where I can, reading posts and topics, and gaining a little more insight into these projects.

  Printing DVD Covers at Proper Size
Posted by: crissrudd4554 - Yesterday, 05:26 AM - Forum: General technical discussions - Replies (4)

Perhaps this is not the right place to ask this but I figured I'd give it a shot. I'm having problems printing my custom DVD covers at the right size. The past year or so I’ve been having Staples print them. Although it’s been hit or miss with how they’re printed (sometimes they’re big enough, sometimes they’re not) when they’re printed right they look perfect (for me at least).

However last Saturday I had one Staples print out two covers and both are slightly smaller than I need them to be. I tried another Staples and got the same result. I went there today and they said the lasers to their printers won’t be able to print them to the size I want. I guess I should have asked them how they were able to get them done right before but I just left.

Anyways the way I had them printed there was on 8.5x11 Elite Gloss paper, I set portrait to landscape, and set the image to fit to page. The first two images shows the edge of the cover where I need it.

Below is from a cover printed this past weekend where the Image doesn’t come close enough to the edge (more noticeable in the second image).

[Image: 23562364-88_B5-4943-_B910-499_E6_DDE6_D26.jpg]

As you can see it’s a pretty subtle difference especially when looking at the first one but the way I want it like with the first examples above fill up the DVD covers much better and more accurately to a real DVD insert. I also should note that I create all my DVD inserts with the same PhotoShop project so they all come out the same size each time so I know that’s not the problem. So any tips guys?? Is there a printer that will print to where I want them?? Is there another printing place I should take them to??

  Akira 2013 BD Regraded as 2001 DVD
Posted by: killthad - Yesterday, 05:04 AM - Forum: Requests, proposals, help - Replies (5)

So I recently purchased the 2013 Blu-Ray of Akira and, my god, is it beautiful. I don't think I've ever seen a more gorgeous restoration of an animated film as this one. The only issue I had was entirely subjective, but I still tend to prefer the colors of the 2001 Pioneer DVD. I don't know why, maybe it's just me, but it just seemed to pop out more there.

So yeah, is anyone interested enough to regrade the BD to match the colors of the Pioneer DVD? Because that would be amazing Big Grin

  Starship Troopers original Dolby Surround Mix
Posted by: Stamper - 2017-10-16, 10:28 PM - Forum: Requests, proposals, help - No Replies

Hey guys,

I'm looking for anyone who still have either the LD audio of Starship Troopers ripped or any DVD featuring the Dolby Surround mix.

I would like to sync it to the current 4K / 2K Blu and share audio only. The current Blu is fantastic, but it lacks the DS mix.

Also if anyone is specialist about this film and can point out any difference in the multiple editions 5.1 mixes, let me know.

Hello everyone. I just found out about this forum and have joined up. I am currently working on edits of the Harry Potter series to create extended versions like the ones on TV. I am hoping at some point to be able to share these with others.

In the meantime, I look forward to being a part of the community.

Bug "This poll is closed." When It Really Isn't
Posted by: BronzeTitan - 2017-10-08, 05:29 PM - Forum: Bug reports and suggestions - No Replies

Hopefully this isn't "built in" so that it can't be fixed. I've noticed that polls which are still active display the notice This poll is closed. when a user is not signed in. However, when signed in it shows as active.

Polls should better show something like Sign in for this poll. as it's normal (not signed in) state. Then, when signed in, it will be shown to be active. When a poll is truly finished, then both these notices should be overridden by This poll is closed.

  The Phantom Menace on 35mm (6k scan)
Posted by: ZigZig - 2017-10-08, 01:34 PM - Forum: Requests, proposals, help - No Replies


I give you the following information, from originaltrilogy.com : 

You may have noticed in poita’s thread poita has the opportunity to scan the SE Trilogy in 6K triple-flashed with a damage matte. There is also a Phantom Menace print available that can be scanned at the same facility. To be scanned triple-flashed with damage matte would require 21TB of storage, scanned single-flashed can be done with 4TB. The prints (Phantom Menace and the SEs) and the scanner are only available for a short window, so it’s now or never if we wish to get this scanned. It is $400 to rent and ship the print.
Scanning will be about $2500.
If you’re interested in this please send me a private message, and let me know how much you would be willing to contribute. ?
Just a quick note: Don’t send me any donations for this, just pledges. If the project goes ahead all donations can be made straight to poita. ?

  Is there any (semi) automated method for restoring a cut w/ a new source (details)?
Posted by: TomArrow - 2017-10-06, 11:13 PM - Forum: Audio and video editing - Replies (1)

I was thinking about how many fanedits live an existence of low quality/SD and I was thinking it should be somewhat trivial to program a software that takes a source (like for example the HD version of a movie), analyzes it, then analyzes the fanedit, and matches the most similar frames and thus recreates that fanedit with a new source, without needing the original project file.

Of course that wouldn't work with rotoscoped stuff and the likes, but the technology for this already exists I think. For example dupeGuru does image comparison for finding duplicates and can do so across different resolutions and even with partial images. It expresses similarity as a percentage. Each frame could simply be matched to the frame that is most similar to it (with a quick pre-pass to find roughly similar frames).

Would probably take a few minutes or maybe hours to do the analysis-pass, but it should not be that programmatically challenging (for someone who knows C++ or the likes - I'm just a lousy PHP developer and PHP is too fucking slow).

If that effort was invested by someone one time, we could, with relative ease, restore a lot of fanedits to higher quality (and do some manual corrections where it didn't work). If that is in anyone's interest, anyway.
