Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom Regrade (35 Project #1)

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (35 Project #2 v1.3)

This is part of my 35 Project:

https://forum.fanres.com/thread-1741.html

See post 22 for final MKV

Project Info:

This is an attempt to make Temple of Doom look more 35mm trailer scans, 35mm/70mm frames and 35mm print sections. The result is a lot less red with added greens and blues while preserving the golden/yellow/orange and brown skin tones. Also added a small luma curve and contrast to better duplicate the 35mm's look.

Video:
The BD image color corrected using a LUT(S) to match the 35mm trailer scans, 35mm/70mm frames and 35mm print sections.

Audio:
1. PCM 2.0 from the US Widescreen laserdisc

2. DTS-HD MA 5.1 from the US BD

Small update. The (hopefully) finally video for this has been encoded at ~20 to 21. So the video size is about 17GB. I wasn't going to include any the tracks from the BD itself but only the awesome PCM from the US widescreen LD and the DVD 5.1 (which was rumored to be from the 70mm masters with stereo-ized rears). Still syncing the DVD 5.1 but with the audio I have that should take the final project size to ~19 or 20GB. So I have some free space if anyone wants me to include any non-English audio or subs, please send them my way now. I just ask that they are in sync with the original BD.

I'd say keep the bd 5.1 as from when I last checked it seemed to be the same as the DVD for the most part. Having both together would help for comparisons. Crusade on the other hand sounds virtually identical to the LD and DVD audio with the LD being slightly different due to being a home video track from a 1990 release and being matrixed.

As usual we have no real idea what if any are actually untouched theatrical tracks. I do quite like the look of how this regrade is going as for the longest time I've felt that the video editions probably aren't quite what the release version looked like. My cherished LD certainly looks slightly more like this on my xbr960 as I have it set to monitor mode which negates the ntsc automatic red push and fixes the skin tones being reddened.

The regraded colors certainly look more doom-like. I like.

I also think the original BD track might be a good addition if you have some space left.

Ok, I did wonder if the BD's track and the DVD's track were close. That answers it for me. Thanks Captain. I'll just keep the BD's DTS-HD MA 5.1 instead of the DVD's track and it should be ready to go this week.

I capped the P&S and Widescreen LDs to compare to the DVD/BD master and they were very similar. All had that serious red push.

BTW, I agree on Crusade. I began to sync the LD's PCM but got bored of it when I noticed it sounded very similar to the BD. I'll have to finish that sync for a Crusade project.

Thank you Tom. BD track is now included.

How would you feel about a faithfully hardware-decoded LD PCM to 4.0 or 5.1 (with BC->LS RS -3dB and LFE from a lowpass of all the channels)?

Same idea goes for the Batman project.

(not sure if you saw my thread over at the audio editing section)

I'll give you a buffalo knuckle if you can restore the censored audio as well when Julian Glover opens the trunk and says this is the finest 'Jewish' gold

shame the Hindenburg footage isn't available, I saw a 35mm print a few years back and it was still optically censored

Is that even on a home version?

Sounds good let's go for it.

Much like you, Tom, I have been experimenting with unwrapping Dolby Surround/Stereo LD soundtracks. I actually did so for my Back to the Future upscale, converting the PCM 2.0 to PCM 5.1 through a Fosgate 5, then encoding in a DTS-HD MA wrapper/compressor. My major hurdle is capturing the output which is laboriously to say the least. Sounds like you have that part better convered.

I'm curious to hear your machine in action (I've been watching that thread). I'll PM you the PCM file for Temple. I think it might be a fun alternative soundtrack.

Was it ever confirmed that line is in the 35mm?
