Dragonslayer Video Fix (Project CRT #5 v1.0)

Dragonslayer Video Fix (Project CRT #5 v3.0)

Project Info:
I'm fan of Dragonslayer from my youth. I wouldn't say its the best movie in the world but I certainly enjoy it. Sadly, Dragonslayer has yet to appear on BD but has made an appearance on HDTV, Itunes and other Web-DLs. The fast fix would be to merge the LD's PCM with the best video presentation but there is one major problem. Every HD copy of DS has strong vertical lines running down the picture, similar to compression noise

The goal of this project is to fix those errors and provide two color timings. The original HDTV grading and a regrade to the old Widescreen LD which has a very green and gold look to it.

For audio I will tentatively add the PCM from the LD, the EAC-3 from the Web-DL and maybe the 5.1 from the DVD.

Video:
Amazon web-dl and HDTV de-blocked with vertical lines mitigated and a separate version color corrected closer to the widescreen laserdisc.

Audio:
1. PCM 2.0 Dolby Surround (from the Widescreen LD)
2. Dolby Digital 5.1 (from the US DVD)

Thanks:
Zoidberg for the PAL DVD

Is anyone working or worked on a Dragonslayer HD project? I've seen that there is an HD and iTunes copy floating around and their looks to be some color variations according to notonbluray.

And there is the PCM track from the LD

I'd give a try on a 50/50 color mix... just out of curiosity, to see how it would look.
Sadly my projects are lost due to an HDD crash... Sad

There was an HDTV cap a long time ago. I don't have it, and there's no guarantee it was any good, but it might still be floating around somewhere on the web. It was OAR.

I looked and couldn't find it but maybe I didn't go far enough.

I should be able to record the transport stream for the upcoming broadcast so hopefully that will be worth it (ie little blocking, still have grain)

Does anyone have the Widescreen LD? I want to get the PCM 2.0 if possible.

Edit: Got a copy

Ok recorded the TS of Dragonslayer last night and at first glance it looks pretty good. Its Mpeg-2 at 18.2 and ac-3 5.1 for the audio. Seems to be the same master as the DVD and Itunes but with short Starz logo every once in awhile.
