12/13 - Changed the subject name. Smile

Right now, I have the opportunity to purchase the original laser disc release of Under the Same Roof. This series is one of the two Jdoramas that I just love to death, and would like a really clean A/A+ copy. The previous versions I have all look pretty bleek, so I thought about just ripping the laser disc version, then add on the subtitles. Yeah it's a lot of work, but it's something I'd like to learn how to do, and this would be a good project to learn from.

If I'm the only one that would benefit from this sort of project, then maybe it isn't worth doing. However, if there are others out there that are also unhappy with the versions that are out there, then maybe I'll do it. So for the "yeah, do it" people, I'd like to hear from you. If enough people are interested, then I'll get into the more specifics on this thread.

Mahalo!

So far, I haven't sent anything out to the general public. If there are people who have my captures, it was obtained directly from me via snail-mail trading. I'm getting better and better at this capturing business (I spoke about my new equipment in a previous thread), so when I'm less embarrased with my captures, I'll more likely mail the CDs to someone to BT seed them for me.

Great!!! Positive feedback! I'll do it! Now I need to wait a couple of days to see if I actually win the laser disc package (it's on an auction site). More likely I'll win, it is just a matter of how much money I end up having to pay. In the meantime, I'll take the really bad version of the series and start copying down the English subtitles. BTW, I'll be copying the subtitles used in the Nippon Golden Network (NGN) broadcast.

Great news! I won the laser disc!!!!!!!!!!!! And I didn't have to sell my house to get it... Just under 10,000 yen for the winning price, service fees, shipping etc. The auction site I bought it from takes awhile (the seller sends it to the deputy service, then the deputy service sends it to me), so we're looking at up to three weeks just to get my hands on the media. Here's what it looks like:





Can't wait!!! Smile

I downloaded the test... The quality of the picture is really good! I don't know... I feel that sometimes the picture and the words are a bit jumpy. Thanks for the demo... Too bad it was that short.

Good luck with the subbing and Thanks! Applaud


Also.. I was wondering, after u finish with the subbing and stuff, can u let users dl the drama through http link first? Smile

I'm sort of noticing the same thing. However, it's more like a flickering effect so you and I may be noticing the same thing, we're just calling it different things. Looking at the laser disc playing right on the TV, that same flickering effect occurs, so it may be because the laser disc is of a lower resolution, or it may even be my laser disc player. Dunno... I wish I knew more about laser disc technology. The video coming off the player is composite - they didn't have S-Video out during those days, though there probably are laser disc players that have S-Video out. I'm thinking that the video signal is somewhat bleeding because of it being composite. I think I'm thinking too much into this!!!!! Bleah

As far as distribution goes, I'm not exactly sure how I'm going to do it. Via http, it's going to kill my web site big-time! However, I'm going to see if I can talk a friend of mine into letting me store the stuff on his server, one episode at a time. I actually work for a ISP, so I can probably get disk space and unlimited bandwidth very cheap. I'll start pursuing that route.

WITH THAT... I've posted my 2nd test. Same video footage, but this time I've stuck in the English subtitles, and sampled the video down to VCD/MPEG-1 so the file is about 25MB or so. For this test, I'd like to see if the subtitles are clear enough for viewing in VCD mode. I'm noticing that as I sample the video down, the subtitles aren't as clear as I'd like it to be. But you people be the final judge... FYI, I'm using Microsoft's Verdana font for the text. I'm also experimenting with the shadowing and outlining of the text to see what looks best.

TEST FILE HAS BEEN REMOVED.

im noticing the blinking throughout the clip as well. also certain colors don't capture as well onto a pc (for example. red, pink, bright green). So thats why the pink font bleeds a little.
