Sad [Help] Issues while using Ripbot264 for tonemapping
Posted by: myllaki - 2020-10-15, 02:27 PM - Forum: Converting, encoding, authoring - Replies (12)

Hi everyone!

I've seen here a lot of praise for this software regarding HDR tonemapping. I've installed it and so on and so on, but when I clicked on "Start", it shows this error message over again:

  Braddock: Missing in Action III (1988) - Remastered Trailer
Posted by: bendermac - 2020-10-14, 09:49 PM - Forum: Released - Replies (1)

Today I've finished the restoring for MIA3 Big Grin

It's not a particular great movie or trailer. I made it more due to some incapable work from NSM Records from Germany. They added the trailer on their Blu-ray (currently the only BD in the world) and they did a re-edit on their own. Boy did they fail. Scenes that are in the movie aren't used in the trailer, because it's was hard to find the right shots and they did simply not care for frame accurate editing in a lot of shots. The titles weren't re-created either. It's a mess.

So I took the challenge and did it myself. The final result is much much closer to the original trailer, due some scenes not being in the final movie or are a few frames shorter. But overall you wouldn't notice for these shots. I also didn't "fix" the flipped shots from the original trailer. NSM did this and for me personally this isn't correct, since the trailer itself had these errors. Lets just say my version is 99% the original trailer Wink

Anyway... you can view it on my Youtube Channel

And for comparison, check out NSM Records version. Though it's only with German audio. But the trailer itself is the same as the US one

The original english trailer is currently only available on the Region 1 DVD and maybe on VHS

  anaglyph 3D to left/right or top/bottom
Posted by: spoRv - 2020-10-14, 08:46 PM - Forum: Script snippets - Replies (1)

I was curious to know if there was a way to convert anaglyph 3D to left/right or top/bottom - after that, converting to MVC should be easy, I guess... Wink

Found an avisynth script here:

If someone have already used - or will use it in the future - I'd like to watch some samples!

P.S. the script deals only with red/cyan and green/magenta anaglyphs, so it would be nice to add amber/blue version!

  17:9 displays?
Posted by: spoRv - 2020-10-14, 07:08 PM - Forum: General technical discussions - No Replies

Lately I was thinking about the fact that 17:9 is (almost) the "perfect" ratio for UAR that uses 1.78:1 and 2.39:1; sure, it will have both sides black (pillarbox) when the open matte is full, still in many instances the UAR "cross" would be touch all the sides - wherever within 16:9 frame it touches only the sides, leaving black borders on top and bottom...

Anyway, I started to look around for 17:9 displays, and so far what I discovered is:

  • 2K projectors (2048x1080) were released only as cinema projector (read: $$$$)
  • 4K projectors (4096x2160) consumers are only available as LCOS (AFAIK) - D-ILA by JVC, SXRD by Sony, starting around 5000$; they are available also as cinema projector ($$$$+$)
  • 2K flat panels I didn't find any
  • 4K flat panels I found only relatively small monitors (up to 31"), not counting the wet dream of many, the Panasonic 103" plasma sold brand new a bit south of 700,000$ - but found used at bargain price of 40,000€
Is anyone aware of any LED/OLED/plasma display (old models too) starting from at least 50" size?

  Enable default subtitles on a Blu-ray
Posted by: NeonBible - 2020-10-14, 06:49 PM - Forum: Converting, encoding, authoring - Replies (5)

I want to enable the English subtitle stream by default on a foreign language movie.

I didn't see this option in tsmuxer so I tried to use BDEdit (wow this app is cryptic). Followed this guide:


...but it doesn't work.

I even found this tool called "Edit Default BD Tracks". That doesn't work either.

Are there any other tools which can do this reliably?

  Hey everybody
Posted by: oswarez - 2020-10-14, 06:09 PM - Forum: Presentation - Replies (3)

Hey guys.
I just wanted to introduce myself. I've been contributing over at TheStarwarstrilogy.com for a while and more or less lurking over at OT. I've done exactly one fan edit, a feature length Mandalorian based on the first three episodes from season 1 where I had to create a couple of shots from scratch to fix cuts. 

I've also done a "special edition" Blu Ray of the Holiday Special and the HBO film Cast A Deadly Spell. All of these are over at Starwarstrilogy. 

I also do cover artwork as well for releases and make them for my stuff. These are also on SWT. 

Anyhoo. I'm always excited to see new stuff and releases that you can't get anywhere else so hopefully this will be fun.

  Cheap HDR to SDR hardware conversion?
Posted by: PDB - 2020-10-14, 02:45 PM - Forum: General technical discussions - No Replies

I need an unique solution. I have a video chain in my “home theater” that is either uhd hdr or up-converted uhd sdr video. One part of the chain goes to a uhd panel capable of handling hdr and sdr.

The second chain goes to my legacy devices which are 1080p or 1080i. Converting 2160p to 1080p or 1080i is simple and effective enough with those cheap converters found on amazon. Problem is I can’t find a cheap solution for hdr to sdr conversion.

(Yes I know I can change the output in my hdr devices to sdr but I want to try to keep the chain in its native format if possible)

The radiance devices can tonemap well but those are expensive. I think some of the hdfuries might work but am unsure. I remember a set top box or two that you could load a lut into that you could, in theory, do a hdr to sdr lut for but can’t find them online anymore.

So shot in the dark does anyone know a cheap hardware solution for hdr to sdr conversion?

  Jaws 3D - Aligned and Corrected
Posted by: Nick_M - 2020-10-14, 01:21 PM - Forum: Released - No Replies

Universal's BD release of Jaws 3D has a fine transfer that accurately represents seeing it in over-under 35mm. However, it maintains all the errors of the original photography, most noticeably, vertical parallax, which causes most of this movie's eyestrain.

I have adjusted every shot so that both eyes are vertically aligned. Additionally, I re-synced the few shots that were out of sync. The source is Universal's BD.

Available as a frame-packed 3D BD. Must provide blanks, postage, and proof of purchase.
