Alright, finally made the thread. So, as I've been browsing and reading through many of the forums, in particular the entire thread of "The reference list of bass movies", there are several, several, scenes and little moments of LFE bliss that many people would love to have all on one disc.

Boom, boom, boom... Subscribed.

AndreasMergner 05-31-2012 09:02 AM

I'd love to see this come to fruition.

Jindrak 05-31-2012 09:27 AM

Oh, it most definitely will. If no one can help provide scenes, then I will need to buy the rest of the movies, which I priced on Amazon to be around $300. Although, hopefully I might be able to find some of them at the library/redbox.


But what would also be a big help is with the titles that have ***'s next to them, I need people to suggest scene's from those particular movies. I wouldn't want to pick them myself only for someone later on down the road to say "Oh, but I wish this scene had been included" after the disc has already been made.

I wouldnt worry too much about that cause there will always be someone. I have pretty much every movie you have on there but have no clue how to clip scenes otherwise I would help out. I have DVDfab so if you have instructions on how to do so let me know and I can see what I can do however I would have no clue how to get them to you either.

Jindrak 05-31-2012 04:12 PM

Sent you a pm

New scene:

Live Free or Die Hard (The apartment shootout)
Star Wars 2 DVD (The opening scene)

scubasteve2365 05-31-2012 06:00 PM

If you mix DVD and bluray content you will run into issues. At the very least if the disc authors most projectors and display devices are going to have to handshake again which often takes a second or two, which doesn't sound like a big deal but when bouncing from menu to clip and back to menu it will prove to be undesirable. You can maybe reencode the DVD video to 1920x1080 at 23.976 fps to solve this but I don't know the impact on mixing it back with the audio. Another consideration will be the framerate of all your clips. You ideally want them the same.

Lastly how you are you authoring this? Leo and I used Scenarist, which isn't very accessible.

Jindrak 05-31-2012 08:10 PM

I will be using multiAVCHD. On some BD's, they have both HD special features and SD and I haven't run into any problems with playback from them. The only reason I include the 3 DVD scenes is because for Titan AE, there is no Blu-Ray and for The Haunting, everyone raves for the DTS track.

But, those 3 could also just have their own little section on the disc. And how in the world do you 2 have the cash to get something like scenarist when it's not even for your job??


But, I suppose those crucial scenes could be cut.

HD/SD can be mixed, not sure if multiAVCHD will handle that though. Even then I don't think you can make "sections" like Leo and I had on our disc. MultiAVCHD doesn't have the ability to do full menu authoring. It's great for what it is, a tool, coded by one guy.

Scenarist is pretty much what you want. Even if you can get access to it the learning curve is pretty steep. You need to have and be familiar with photoshop as well. Going this route be prepared to dump a couple hundred hours into this project from clip collection to authoring to testing.

Jindrak 05-31-2012 09:40 PM

I already have PhotoShop and am familiar with it. However, I cannot use Scenarist, as I simply cannot drop $5000 + just to one-time author a blu-ray. However, I am quite sure I can make something very nice to everyone without it If the DVD scenes do not work out, then they don't work out. I'll make 2 versions for me to test.

I can, however, use something like Adobe Encore or Sony's DVD Architect (Which can do Blu-Ray Authoring) if that helps.

Encore and Architect won't handle the lossless audio tracks. Your choices are multiAVCHD, Sonic Scenarist, Sony's BluPrint ( also very expensive like Scenarist) and one more expensive piece (cheaper than BluPrint and scenarist though) of software. That piece has a 30 day evaluation, in the event that you have the time to throw at this and wrap your project up that fast. I'll try to dig up the name.

I'm just trying to help you see what you're getting into. Strangely bluray authoring isn't as accessible as DVD authoring if you want to retain lossless audio. Encore and some the other consumer level packages would be perfect for this project (and mine) if the lossless was handled. Unfortunately they weren't so that meant that I was forced to use a professional studio grade suite. Maybe things have changed since I last looked into and a consumer grade package now handles lossless.

Dostudio and Bluprunt have free trial periods.

And I believe Nero, whatever the current version is, can handled HD audio too, but is limited to templates when it comes to menus.

Also besides an authoring program you will need some different audio and video tools, things tend to get out of wack sometimes when the streams are clipped.

scubasteve2365 06-01-2012 06:26 AM

Thanks Leo, DoStudio was the name that escaped me.

trek737 06-01-2012 12:19 PM

Private Ryan ( Opening attack on the beaches of Omaha)

Master and the Commander ( When his ship is under attack)

Rango ( When he crosses the road in the beginning of the movie and the last action scene at the end of the movie... It may not be all bass but it is sounds incredible)

Just a few ideas if you wanted some extra material....

Good luck,
Jim

lt99 06-01-2012 12:30 PM

Another one:
The Art of Flight (The first song – Alaska)

The Dolby TrueHD 7.1 is insane on this track, the visual is also spectacular.

superleo 06-11-2012 08:41 AM

Anything happening here?

Just watched Super 8. I haven't check at the subs threads, but I'm sure some one must have the waterfall graphs for the train wreck scene. Very impressive!!!

Jindrak 06-14-2012 09:26 PM

Yep, stuff is happening. Slow going, but trucking along. Added a few scenes where none were suggested. Removed Cloverfield from the list of "Scenes Needed", as there are already 2 scenes and that is plenty for Clover.

I might take The Incredibles off, as I haven't heard much from other people about scenes that stand out in this movie, just overall good bass.

Jindrak 07-16-2012 01:54 PM

Updated. Several scenes have been collected, but still have a long ways to go.

NewHTbuyer 07-16-2012 02:42 PM

Great idea.

A new movie that has impressed many: Underworld Awakening. The first appearance of the giant Lycan and later the scene when the elevator drops on Selene.

coolcat4843 07-25-2012 02:37 PM

I picked up the DTS Blu-Ray Demo Disc 2008 edition, at the Consumer Electronics Show
in Las Vegas, several years ago.

The folks at DTS were passing them out at there booth.
Never pass up freebies!

It has the best quality lossless audio that I have ever experienced on BD, with bass
so deep and powerful, that it will rattle the gold fillings in your teeth. smile.gif

Click here to see everything that's on the disc.

I don't understand why Dolby and DTS don't sell there demo disc to the general public.
They would make a killing!

Jindrak 07-27-2012 02:56 PM

Another scene added:

The Matrix Revolutions - Burly Brawl

Jindrak 08-13-2012 10:55 PM

Ubergoober update. To start, here's the scenes I've added/gotten:

The Last Airbender - Water Wall
War of the Worlds (Lightning Strikes, Military Fighting Back, Plane Crash in Basement)
The Incredible Hulk (Sonic Cannons)
Battle: LA (Heli ride to Santa Monica, Final Battle)
Hellboy 2 (Elemental Battle)
Transformers (Base Attack at Beginning, Ironhide Jump)
Dark Knight (Lau's Extraction, Hospital Explosion, Bank Robbery)
Live Free or Die Hard (Apartment Shootout, F35 Attack)
Iron Man (Cave Escape)
Jurassic Park (T-rex Appears)
Tron Legacy (Disc Wars, Entering the Grid, Plane Battle)
The Hurt Locker (The beginning bomb Explosion)
Immortals (Tidal Wave, Mountain Destruction)
Batman: Under the Red Hood (First Five Minutes)
Toy Story 2 (Intro Scene)
Scott Pilgrim (The Twins Battle)
Iron Man 2 (Intro Scene, Creating a new element)
Resident Evil: Afterlife (Tokyo Purge)
Star Trek (Drilling Platform Fight, Narada emerges from the black hole)

Now, I have a problem. To many scenes frown.gif Right now, the folder is sitting at 51.4 GB, which is to much for a Dual Layer Blu-Ray, and I still don't have the Pulse - Server Room or Open Range - Showdown or the Thor - 1st Warp and Thor - Warp Tower Collapses scenes. So, I need some help in deciding which scenes to keep and which one's to throw out. I've already decided to not include the Super 8 - Train Wreck sequence and The Pacific - Iwo Jima battle. I've updated the 1st post so that it doesn't look as ugly/messy. Hopefully some of you guys'll chime in, otherwise I'll have to decide on my own which ones to keep, and I don't want to discard good ones frown.gif Right now, I'm thinking about getting rid of the HTTYD - Super Dragon scene, as it's over 2GB in size and most people have probably seen it and/or have the movie. The other one is Pearl Harbor - Surprise Attack, as that one is about 2.55GB in size. If both of those went out, then the total size would be around 46.85GB, which would be enough to get (I think) the Pulse and Open Range scenes. I'd really like to have those 2, as they are rather excellent ones that do a good job of showing off. But, after that, I should be good to go and could start immediate work on getting the menu's up and running.

superleo 08-14-2012 07:17 AM

Great job.

I would maybe just use 1 clip from Dark Knight , 1 clip from Transformers and 1 clip from Iron man 2. That might give you enough space to add the clips you really want included in the ULTIMATE disc.

Jindrak 08-14-2012 11:58 AM

I had also checked out

The Day After Tomorrow - Helicopters Freeze & New York gets Flooded
Wall-E
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

But they didn't have anything that was truly noteworthy. Good bass in Transformers, but not a whole lot below 25Hz for any reasonable amount of time. I'd also have liked to get Redline in here, but that would take up to much space. The Haunting DTS dvd is also out, as are Star Wars Episode 1 - Pod Race and Star Wars Episode 2 - Beginning Shot. After I get Pulse and Open Range scenes, I'll see if there's still room for Titan AE - Ice Nebula. I decided to get rid of Pearl Harbor. The 2 Iron Man scenes are both below 500MB each, so I believe they are just to small to get rid of.

Poo, if only there was such a thing as 60GB Blu Ray discs.

Edit: Book of Eli - Street Shootout is gone. Not good enough. Total folder is now at 48.8GB

48.8 is probably too big. You gotta do the 1000 versus 1024 conversion. A kB according to windows is 1024 bytes but according to disc manufacturers it's 1000 bytes.
