CURRENT PLANS


Well after getting the other release of The Last Unicorn on Blu-Ray in the mail, I honestly cannot decide which one is better. At quick glance, they both honestly have their ups and downs and reasons to like or dislike one more than the other.

Because of this I will probly just make 2 releases of it, one from each different master they used.

It's pretty much Lionsgate vs Shout and I cannot decide which one I prefer from quick glancing alone. I will examine them more on Tuesday when I get the time to actually make some scripts for them and see if I will only choose one or go with both as separate encodes.

My next upload is taking a long time in encoder. Mostly because I just decided today after seeing the finished results, that I wanted to remake the scripts for everything. That it will take perhaps another 3-4 days to finish up because of that.

I'm hoping to have my next upload up within the next week. Lets see how these turn out after they finish running through the encoder.

A good friend of mines father died and they invited me to funeral. I would never turn this particular friend down if I was able to go be there for them. I will be out of state for 2 days because of this, so I will have to get back to replies and any work when I return.

Well if you were going to have her watch it, I will try to have it done within the next week. No promises about that time estimate, but I will be trying to meet it. I also decided I will be releasing both masters instead of just one as things stand right now. I'll know for sure when they are both done and I compare them then. I think I read that one has different audio track available as well as the different video masters.

I only wrote the scripts for one of them before I found a new source for Duel Masters and got hooked on doing Duel Masters as a priority since I wanted it badly. So I gotta go finish the second one here soon and compare the two.

Sounds like a good plan to me. We're in no big hurry or anything Smile

I have finished writing the scripts for The Last Unicorn movie.

It looks like Lionsgate is the version I prefer. Shout did use less washed out colors and it does look cleaner which I usually like, but they used very powerful DNR to clean it up and it looks like it has too much contrast and way too much sharpness. It just looks unnatural and or screwed up unless being watched on TV from a distance. They also compressed the video more and its a full 10GB less than the Lionsgate version. I did my best to fix this unnatural look and its decent, but I still prefer Lionsgate version. I did however get it good enough that if I had never even seen the Lionsgate version, Id be more than happy with it.
Lionsgate however has such strong moving grain and color splotch issues that its annoying as hell. Even with this though it still looks better to me, detail wise and it looks more like a classic older cartoon instead of an overly DNR'd video. I cleaned it up a tad without overdoing it so it's not as bad but it's still there.


Personally I wish there was a better source available to work with but I will provide both versions. My recommendation is this.

If you don't care about DNR and cannot stand the grain, go with the Shout version. It may be clean but it still seems to have plenty of detail in it and some darker things/lines in darker areas are visible that cannot be seen in the Lionsgate version.

If you like the more classic animation look and can deal with the grain, go with the Lionsgate version. It may appear a little washed out or older looking, but it does appear to look more natural and have better overall detail.

If you want the extra audio tracks that are available, then I recommend you get both. Lionsgate has both the 25th Anniversary Edition audio and the Theatrical Version audio. The Shout version only has either the 25th Anniversary or only the Theatrical (I'm not sure which one it is) but it also has a different Director Commentary than the Lionsgate release. So your getting a new Director Commentary with the Shout release and both Theatrical and 25th Anniversary edition audio with the Lionsgate release. I don't know the difference between the 25th Anniversary and Theatrical audio tracks. The words sound the same, so I am going to assume its different musical scores in them perhaps.


I will run these through the encoder either tonight or tomorrow. I'm using slow as hell filters so I don't have an estimate of finishing time until it begins going through the encoder.

Looks like it will take about 1-2 days for Shout version, and 2-4 days for Lionsgate version to finish encoding.

Well I was going to put Shout version up tonight, but I have decided that it needs a little more bitrate for the video, so I am going to up the bitrate some and re-run it through the encoder right now.

After looking into it a bit more and listening to them, I found out the 25th Anniversary Edition audio is merely censored and it removed words like Damn, and Hell from the audio. The Shout version appears to have the uncensored Theatrical audio in it. So both have uncensored version, and their own Director Commentary, while the Lionsgate also provides the censored 25th Anniversary Edition audio as well.

Shout release for The Last Unicorn turned out pretty good looking for 1080p. I should have it ready to go up in about 2.5 days. It takes a long time for the encoder to finish processing it.

Sorry everyone, lifes been pretty hectic for me the last couple weeks. I been busy, multiple friends had deaths in the family and one was out of state. I also haven't been feeling up to working on anything either due to all this and nice weather FINALLY appearing for me to go outside. It all added up. This was probably already apparent to everyone who was waiting on replies from me on Discord, Skype, Forum, and E-mail because I have not been around to read them all yet.

I should be back in the game on monday and resume usual work.

Thanks for your patience!

Almost got my next release done. Apparently I have had it ripped and waiting to be encoded for 2+ years, so I decided to get it out of the way. I really love this series, it's just alot of work to get its quality up. No estimated date at the moment but if I cannot get it up real soon, I will do a quick movie release or re-upload of something thats been in waiting for re-upload.

I decided on doing something else real quick due to getting ahold of a new source. It looks like one or two more days and I'll have the first season of my next release done. I must have spent a good 25 hours this weekend syncing English audio and Subtitles to Japanese Blu-Rays. It was kind of a time consumer, but I finally got it. Just waiting for the videos to finish running through the encoder. Then I will quality check the subtitles and syncs.

Expect an upload from me within the next couple days.
