Re: I'm Finally Doing It! - The Nutcracker Fantasy (1979)

I'm going to once I get the chance. It's too bad they couldn't to a HD release. A good chunk of my monthly spending money has been on Kickstarter campaigns as of late. :)

Re: I'm Finally Doing It! - The Nutcracker Fantasy (1979)

I may wait to see if Discotek is doing a blu-ray of the English version. Even so, my goal was to do a combo of the English and Japanese versions. The Japanese version has a few slightly extended scenes compared to the English dub. Might wait on getting the japanese only blu-ray if an English/Japanes...

Re: I'm Finally Doing It! - The Nutcracker Fantasy (1979)

I will probably end up buying the Blu-Ray of the original version. I did watch the YouTube English Remastered version that was shared. While I will say that the re-master isn't as bad as I thought overall, there are significant parts missing and re-edited. It also looks like Sanrio decided it would ...

Re: I'm Finally Doing It! - The Nutcracker Fantasy (1979)

Hey Garrett I was recently looking into information on Nutcracker Fantasy for my blog on obscured animated features (I am an industry animator in Vancouver and I run this blog on the side) and I found an Orange Cow forum topic where one of your followers was going to edit a HD version of Nutcracker...

I don't think it is the original 1979 version but the restored/updated version Sanrio came out with a couple of years back.

Re: I'm Finally Doing It! - The Nutcracker Fantasy (1979)

I ran into a bunch of framerate issues and have been waiting for an opportunity to get access to Adobe Premiere. They just reset the free 1 month trial for all users so, hopefully will re-tackle it soon. On the up-side, I also found 2 CDs which came with my "collector's set" from ebay in 2005 that a...

Re: I'm Finally Doing It! - The Nutcracker Fantasy (1979)

I think I may have figured it out. Both sources are DVD sources. Both sources were originally encoded at 29.97 FPS. However, for some reason when I used Handbrake on the Japanese DVD source it interpreted the frame rate as 46.875. I guess this happens due to an error in audio encoding or something. ...

Re: I'm Finally Doing It! - The Nutcracker Fantasy (1979)

Played around with things a bit tonight. Yes, there are definitely some oddities in syncing the English audio to the Japanese video. It may be due to different frame rates between the two but, I'm not sure if that is an accurate assessment. From what I am finding, the audio slowly ends up being fast...

Re: I'm Finally Doing It! - The Nutcracker Fantasy (1979)

Interesting, I will see how all that will line up. I am hoping it will but, we will have to see. The Japanese version has extended Rag Man scenes, including one when Drosselmeyer first appears. There are lots of little "gotchas" in the mix. Will have more time to work on things Wednesday and Friday ...
