How lucky are we, in this forum!
#1
Sometimes I visit other A/V forums (I'm guilty, your honour!) and reading some threads/post, I think how lucky are we, in this forum!

Here, muxing audio tracks from different sources is the simplest thing in the world; capturing bit-perfect audio from LD is a joke; even color regrading is a task that many are able to achieve...

And there, they see at a poster that muxed an Atmos track from UHD with the 3D video track from BD as a hero!


Often I was almost there to post and say "C'mon, be part of our forum, you will be amazed!" but I stop... should I go forward, next time?

(if only they knew it's possible to get Cinema DTS or laserdisc AC-3 bit-perfect tracks, their head could explode!)
Sadly my projects are lost due to an HDD crash... Sad

I'm in a few facebook groups and in one of them a guy sells blu ray bootlegs. He literally takes a HDTV stream, puts it on a disc with a static "Play Movie" menu and prints a cover. Some of the guys in that group worship the ground he walks on. "You are doing the lord's work" etc. Some of the projects on this site would blow their minds!

We are blessed. Don't tell them though. We don't want them to turn this place into the same thing. Big Grin

Edit: Something interesting I noticed is that even talking to people passionate about film to a greater degree than most, it is very hard to convince them of the premise of fanres. Explaining to them the loss of original color gradings, audio tracks and other things, tends to leave them cold and disinterested and when shown a nice picture from a 35mm scan (the holy grail around here), all they have to say is "why is it so unsharp and full of dirt? will that be fixed? the blu ray is much sharper and more natural looking." Maybe we are just psychological deviants to care about these things. But I'm happy for it. This means we will avoid large scale attention and everything bad that comes with a "mainstreamization" of a niche. Smile

Compared to the dwellers of a certain online forum which shall not be named, this place is an oasis of calm.

Long live fanres!
