  Problems Deinterlacing The Storyteller (Jim Henson, 1987)
Posted by: Kyaneos - 2020-11-24, 12:56 PM - Forum: Audio and video editing - Replies (16)

Hello everyone,

I'm trying to fix Sony's disastrous NTSC DVD of The Storyteller, Jim Henson's mythical 1987 series.

The first problem I have with interlacing. Supposedly the series was shot in 35 mm, but with a inverse telecine I don't get good results.

Neither with filters such as QTGMC, TDeint, TMC ... I cannot eliminate residual images, ghosting, saw effect in the contours and other artifacts.

Could anyone help me to fix and restore the video?

This is a sample of the uncompressed DVD:

Thanks in advance.

  Natural Born Killers LaserDisc audio
Posted by: Frankensteiner - 2020-11-24, 01:36 AM - Forum: Requests, proposals, help - Replies (10)

The original ending of NBK is a quick montage accompanied by a Nine Inch Nails song called Burn. This was how it was released in theaters, VHS and LaserDisc. DVD Era NBK had a director's cut where this part was changed to generic tribal music and every release since has continued this tradition. I thought it would be a nice easy project to restore the original ending to whatever release is considered the best image quality today, some grammar school level restoration that I can handle (although if anyone more experienced wants to take the project, I will get out of the way). Oliver Stone has never mentioned preferring the tribal music to Burn, so I've always thought it was a mistake, or an omission beyond choice. Either way, I find the NIN ending a superior exclamation on the film.

Here's a video of the two endings if you're interested to see the difference. (NSFW)

Hello everybody,

I am currently in the process of changing my home theater setup from playing retail discs to playing files, so that I have full control over everything. So I'm also in the process of backing up my Blu-ray collection.
During this, I discovered the endless possibilities of corrections to rips of existing Blu-rays and am very excited to become a part of this. This is how I found this forum and hope to be received well.

Best

  Falstaff - Chimes at Midnight (1965) Spanish BD (Mr Bongo) synced to Criterion Bluray

Falstaff - Chimes at Midnight (1965) Spanish Bluray (Mr. Bongo) LPCM 2.0 synced to Criterion Bluray


"While the Mr. Bongo Films blu-ray looks awful, its audio track is great. It has plenty of ticks and pops, but it's remarkably clear and immediate. The Criterion is comparatively muffled and distant."
