Predator Itunes Master (Quick Project)
#21
This looks at first sight exactly like the UH edition DNR version, but with the grain managed.
Pro: more detail in the scan than the regular BD.
Cons: Colors are shifted and do not represent the film, with burned whites in many scenes
The titles have been redone with modern fonts, close but no match
Does not represent the 35mm color timing.
This scan was made so that the film can be converted to 3D because of the success of Avatar. So like the UH edition, it still looks like Avatar.

There is a UHD release on the horizon
https://www.avpgalaxy.net/2018/05/22/pre...-releases/
Any problems in the blown out whites ect may be salvageable in a fan made UHD to BD project, as most of the problems Ive seen in screenshots look like choices in the conversion to SDR (Excluding the color grade).

Sorry if this is a derail of your thread PDB, I understand its is a itunes to BD project only Smile

There are a lot of 2160p rips from iTunes/Hulu showing up on public trackers from group GASMASK, maybe they'll do Predator sometime Tongue

Actually the said 4K Bluray is coming out this month - https://www.filmarena-eng.com/blu-ray-th...k-ultra-hd

Hopefully, the UHD BD is vastly superior but in the meantime I'm still going to finish this up for a small release.

Because you never know with Fox...

For anyone still interested in this...I captured the stream 2 more times to make sure I had the best "streamed" parts for the whole film. Any improvement is very minor as it's still a stream but I'm trying to get the best pic possible. I did notice one way this master is a much better master then the 2008 BD. Apparently, Fox's dirt and scratch removal software was a little to aggressive in 2008 with the lightning at the end before the explosion. It removed or muted a lot of the optical effects. Some examples:

Anyway I'm rendering out of AP right now. Once the MKV is done, I'll upload it and keep it there for a short time only since I need the online space for other non-quick projects.

Cool comparison. Yeah, those DNR artifacts aren't new to me, have seen something similar in the comparisons of the Mummy & Mummy 2 BD vs. HD-DVD (the latter being less DNRed)

After a few fits and starts with this project. I think I have fixed all the issues and I believe this is ready to go. Or as ready as it will ever be.

In the end, it is synced to the 2008 BD so you can pull in any soundtrack and subs from that to work here.

The Itunes was missing 1 frame that the 2008 had. I capped the same spot about 5 times to confirm and the one frame is just not there. So I dupped it with the preceding frame.

Here are the final details:

I'm uploading now so it will take a few hours. If you want a copy please PM me.

I'm only going to keep the project uploaded for a week or two since I need the online space. Most likely I'm not going to put it anywhere else like the organ. I don't see the need since the UHD is coming.
