Troy (2004) Open Matte (Theatrical Cut)
#1
Aims
  • to preserve the open-matte version of Troy
  • to test how compatible a processed (but not re-encoded) HDTV stream is with people's players
I began by fixing errors in the video stream.  Then, I trimmed away the logo at the beginning of the cap, which was the only section that was not soft telecined, before removing the pulldown flags.  Finally, I rewrote the stream's header info so that it read as fully progressive, which it now is.

For the audio, I decoded the Dolby TrueHD 5.1 from the HD DVD of the theatrical cut and synced it to the video.  As the film now lacks the logo at the beginning, it starts a little abruptly at the beginning of the opening credits (though none of the film itself is missing), so I've made it smoother by fading in the audio.  Apart from the opening, only one edit was needed, and I don't think you'll notice it.

There's no menu, but I made some custom chapter-stops for easy navigation.  The disc is not in sync with any official release.

I tested the disc in three BD players, all different makes and models, and experienced no playback issues, so it's my guess that you won't either.  Nonetheless, I'd like to hear how your BD players handle it.

Details
  • BD-25
  • Video: 23.976fps MPEG-2 (no re-encoding)
  • Audio: DTS-HD MA 5.1 (sourced from the HD DVD)
  • custom chapter-stops

PM me if you are interested.
