Re: Video Restoration Thread

MiniDV-based digital editing technology first became popular between 1998 and 2001, and it's remarkable how fast it's become not only obsolete but very difficult to archive and work with on modern platforms. Although I upgraded to HD by 2016 at the latest, I was still using MiniDV tech as late as 20...

Re: Things I Say

Old business. 3 TB worth of it, in MiniDV format. Captured some old tapes. A few hundred of them. Now I'm secretly uploading some of my old movies from high school, for an audience of about four people.

Re: Movie Thread: The Dissection Room

The BFI held (and Universal still hold) an incomplete/damaged copy of the otherwise-lost epilogue to 1931's Dracula. Cut from rereleases, it's never been on any home video release, but was excerpted in a 1999 documentary. "Was able to get in touch with David J. Skal. The footage of the epilogue...

Re: Video Restoration Thread

It's one of those nights where I'm running into something which should be simple and straightforward, but turns out to be difficult and not supported in most software- -that is, deinterlacing video Yadif-style on Mac OSX High Sierra. Driving myself insane with this. "I could just do a bob in Pr...

Which is available at Archive. https://youtu.be/8yPRC8cotp8 He did an episode of The Jim Henson Hour (and had worked with Jim on Jim's first TV jobs). https://arch...

Re: Raggedy Ann & Andy Thread

If you tuned into the Chuck Jones Christmas Raggedy Ann special in 1980, you'd have seen these ads at the very end, and a newsbreak about the murder of musician John Lennon. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1wDR-cV0hlc Lawrence Welk featured Raggedy Ann & Andy for Christmas 1966 and Halloween 197...

Re: Raggedy Ann & Andy Thread

After several days work, I've completed Photoshop cleanup of the damaged scene in the 1977 film where Sir Leonard Looney introduces King Koo Koo. There's a couple of other scenes I'm still looking at, but it should be possible soon to have a new edit of this film, replacing the already-released UHD....

Flintstone
Got an iPhone
But he cannot tell his family
Blame George
and Jane Jetson
They've been messing with causality
Someday
Apple's gonna lose the fight
Expensive
And it isn't working right
Flintstone
Got an iPhone
Not an interesting story
Barely a story
More like an anecdote
