[Released] Terminator 2 Judgment Day (1991). Regraded + Partially DeRem'd + Regrained
#1
Hi there.

So, bringing you Terminator 2...
...partially? Yes, only some of the changes are fixed Sad
I found to big issues:
1. The remastered BD has more detail than the old BD (much more). When cropping and pasting, the difference it's noticeable. In some cases particularly distracting. The bike jump scene was the one that made me drop the idea. Pasting the original "Arnie's face" back made the fix too distracting.
2. They are different scans. To fix the changes you have to rescale, adjust rotation, color match the two scenes, and if you have the HDDVD or the 2015 BD as source for the original version, degrain it. The PQ difference, it's just to big and there's also one more thing you can do nothing about: the scan. When scanning a film there are some stretching and pinch effects that might be noticeable between two different scans. A comparison is the best way to describe it. Here's a frame from The Terminator where you can see very clearly what I'm talking about:

When fixing Arnie's face in the bike jump scene, the still frames looked fine but it was noticeable in motion. Not to mention the obvious difference in PQ. Same for the equipment visible when the T-1000 is driving the truck chasing John and the stuntman in the back seat when escaping from Pescadero (blurry stains if you ask me). Just  too distracting.
So in the end, I fixed only the most obvious changes (T-1000 secret gun, truck's flying windows, Van Damme look alike stuntman, Arnie's face riding away from the truck's explosion).
End of rant.

For more subtitles, use opensubtitles, for example, to find the one you want.

You can find it on  katcr *dot* co  (kickass torrents)  (it's ok to say where as long as I don't post any links, right?)

Good to see the Purple Lasers are back. 

What is the T1000 'secret gun'?

I'd say his penis, when he's crouching and "cocking" the gun.

Well, actually it would be a stabbing weapon, according to the T-800. But yeah.

I think you could try this method for better alignment in the facial replacement scene: https://forum.fanres.com/thread-2581.html (referring to the image registration macro)

It doesn't really matter, since I cropped and pasted Arnie's face and did all the scaling, aligning, etc. frame by frame, (same for the rest of the fixes).
The problem is the slight distortions from the scanning itself:
Here's another example of what I'm talking about. Check the 3rd picture (or the 7th), the difference between the US Ultimate and the US Extreme:

I don't think the script can fix something like that.

Hi Sanjuro, looks great! Did you adjust the colors?

Also did you use the 4K as the source?

Also is the 5.1 the CDs mix, or just the Blu-ray mix?

Nope, just the regular remastered BD. My PC is not powerful enough to handle 4K Sad (when I did 4K77 and 4K83 I used a 1080p version and then ohteedee / williarob handled the 4K version). But those where SDR, not HDR.
The sound is from the remastered BluRay. Both tracks.

Yes colors are adjusted using the old BD as a general reference (only to give an idea of the colors not to match them in any way).
