  Yojimbo (1961) - Criterion Mono Blu-Ray synced to Toho Blu-Ray
Posted by: spaceboy710 - 2020-12-30, 08:25 AM - Forum: Released - Replies (3)

Yojimbo (1961)
Criterion 48/24 FLAC synced to Toho Blu-Ray

Per Moshrom
"...the Criterion mono track, which has been restored surprisingly well -- the Toho mono mix has so much tape noise that it sounds like it's raining in every scene"

I thiiiiink he meant the Criterion Blu-ray. I haven't heard either Criterion DVD releases so I can't vouch for them.

PM if interested!

Somewhere in Time (1980)
NTSC DVD Audio (not sure which edition. likely the Special Edition)
2.0 mono
Synced to the Region 1 Blu-ray

The Blu-ray's audio is muffled by noise reduction. The DVD is considerably better.

  Hello from lockdown
Posted by: gilhodges - 2020-12-28, 07:01 PM - Forum: Presentation - Replies (3)

Hello from lock down Los Angeles. I am fairly new to the world of Fan Edits/Fan Restorations etc. Though I have been collecting concert audio and video recordings for MANY years. Some of the reasons I collect those apply to the edits found here. I collect concerts because A) I like the music and B) See A. It all started with wanting copies of the shows I attended. Progressed to recording shows myself then trading and on and on.  People ask why do you have some 800 Springsteen recordings? I look at each show as history. One show is not the same as the next , something small happens to make that show unique. Plus I am what is called a "completeist"(sp?). Any way what I think applies here is that fans TRUE fans when they see something they can maybe improve on do so and in doing so, do (so many do's) a so much better job than the studios. Because they do it form a fans view rather than a marketing view . This is what I appreciate from the editors. All the work and effort put in to the project. And these days with the lock downs, especially here in California. Without being able to go to theatres the edits make time go by so much more enjoyable. So in advance I would like to thank all the editors for their work and efforts. A few of my favorite editors are Dr. Saperstein, Mainiac, TM2YC and MBTM. But I have enjoyed all the edits from everyone that I have watched.

  Evil Dead II LD Track Synced To UHD BR
Posted by: brad86 - 2020-12-27, 12:56 PM - Forum: Requests, proposals, help - Replies (2)

I obtained the track elsewhere, that has been synced to the 25th Aniv' BR, but I can't seem to sync it myself to the recent UHD release.
Trimming and matching the track is fine for a few minutes, but then goes out of sync again.

Anyone with the right software tools and know-how fancy taking up the task ?

Shoot me a message if you need the track.

Was searching for the best possible version out there of Polar Express and noticed they're a lot of them.

Just an example of the difference I have noticed between 2D and 3D Sources

Anybody knows why on the regular Blu-ray background is out of focus on the image #3 & #4?

  Classic Horror Trailers
Posted by: crissrudd4554 - 2020-12-24, 07:17 AM - Forum: Requests, proposals, help - Replies (12)

Hello, most of you probably know Im big fan of old horror films. As a side project for myself Im piecing together a compilation of a bunch of old trailers but I need help with some of them. Keep in mind I'm trying not to rip from YouTube or the internet due to quality purposes.

1. The Invisible Man Returns- This is on the Invisible Man BD which I have however I have no means to rip it. None of my discs drives support BDs and all my capture devices are SD so not much I can do. I did ask another member about this and he said he didnt have the BD but would see if his family does when he visits them for the holidays. Incase he strikes out and anyone has the BD if you could somehow capture/rip the trailer for me that'd be awesome.

2. The Atomic Man- This movie was originally called Man Made Monster. Ive seen the trailer on YouTube in low quality but not sure if its available on a DVD anymore. If anyone knows that'd be great.

2. Revenge of the Creature- This is on the DVD and BD but its windowboxed. Non-windowboxed versions have appeared elsewhere. This is a bit of a stretch but here's how someone might be able to get it. We used to use Xfinity as our cable provider until a few months ago. When I went to the info section for Revenge of the Creature on the Xfinity box and selected the trailer it played the full frame version. But keep in mind it was in 16:9 pillarbox and if I captured it I woulda had it in 4:3 letterboxed with basically the whole trailer window boxed again. But anyways if anyone has Xfinity and an HD capture device and can capture it I'd appreciate it greatly.

3. The Creature Walks Among US- This one I could actually hunt down myself if no one has it but Ill ask anyways. This is for the longer trailer that isnt available on the DVD or BD. I actually have the trailer on a trailer compilation DVD but its a little jittery and jumpy in spots. The trailer is however available on the 2000 VHS. If anyone has that tape and can capture it that'd be great but if not like I said I can hunt this one down if no one has it.

That's all I have for now. If there are anymore Im on the look out for I'll let everyone know but until then if anyone could help that'd be great! Thanks and have a good day! Smile

  Panic Room Special Edition
Posted by: alleycat - 2020-12-23, 05:39 PM - Forum: Released - Replies (15)

[Image: wqqG7JF.jpg]

This project uses the Open Matte 1080P webrip of Panic Room, together with all of the extra features from the 3 disc DVD set, including the Easter eggs.

This project was another unique challenge as the DVD uses multiple angles on some of the special features, something that was rare on DVD but even rarer on blu ray - so much that the authoring software I use does not support it directly. In order to achieve it I had to use java code and thankfully a friend who is very well versed in java programming blu rays worked it out for me - it now switches perfectly with the red button on your remote.
