@Bladez QUOTEI've gotten a little farther, j3pfilms will be doing the voice of Gorman and maybe some extras.j3pfilms? Not heard of them (him?), but it sure is good news that you've got help with voicing a major Interster character!Have to say I really like this forum, it's a friendly one

I want to see this go into work, personally.It seems to me as though you should work from the originals, if it can be helped, rather than mkv rips of the same (which are obviously going to be ever-so-slightly degraded in detail).Leave it with me. I'm doing my stuff for Apple but I'm also looking for another job because things are weird there, although they promised me a promotion today.I think they realised that they might be about to lose me.Don't see why you *need* a MacBook just to run Adobe stuff. A fair amount of Creative Suite only works in Windows anyway.I'd rather have a PC anyhow.Just wait until Mountain Lion before you get a Mac, if you're set on one, because Lion is terrible. I have to deal with it at work. Someone very nearly got fired from our office last week for posting the same sentiment on Facebook (although his rendition was more colourful).You may even have to pay to upgrade from Lion to Mountain Lion when Lion just doesn't work. We don't know yet. We just know that the beta versions have been released to the testers.It'd be a bit like having to pay for SP1 after you bought XP.

Hey Crash, sounds like a really nice place there, where you work I hate those places that treat you like dirt, then offer a "promotion" only when they think you are about to leave.Glad you escaped injury in your Subaru crash. They are tough vehicles aren't they!I too would like to see Bladezs' project come to fruition.Wish I could make similar progress on my EP18 re-dub project, but I'm so busy with work ATM

I'm using it for the class mostly; I'm aware of the incompatability of other elements. I suppose it's because Apple's are more capable of carrying a lot more and are used quite more often in businesses than Microsoft is.I'd be sending the pics I work with to my normal Windows Toshiba laptop anyhow. I do believe regular picture files work on mac laptops - I'm simply remastering jpg frame by frame screenshots.

I think most business need Windows for compatibility of bespoke or specialist software.Most companies that think they need Macs are just deluding themselves.They just want the image.Macs have to work with a whole load of common formats - they even open XLS spreadsheet files etc from Windows.Infact, Office is actually a version ahead on Mac than it is on Windows.It will even read (but not write to) a Windows NTFS-formatted drive (big wow).I don't think you're gonna be thrilled with Mac OS X though. It's bad for multitasking and it's just ridiculously overcomplicated now.

I treated my Toshiba when I first got it like a sibling I was upset with. BUT, I'm not upset by it as such either. I don't have a choice in getting one unless I want to drop the course altogether....

Film industry is right, but not exclusive to Mac either.Film editing is good on the Mac but then what about CGI?I was thinking more along the lines of most offices and businesses.I visited a programming firm near Durham today and it was all Microsoft Certified Partner etc.All their kit was Dell and Toshiba - very swish.

I finished the latest one, and to commemorate such a fact; here's the epic scene from episode 4: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3n3iDr9R7S4 The first scene is the one I remastered and I'm fairly happy with it!http://www.mediafire.com/?i8sxz3t3o09j0r9 here's the link - this one rendered actually faster than the others (meaning it's at a faster speed than it should probably be.With this one, I also fiddled with the audio to get rid of that hissing sound - not sure how successful it was, I really can't tell a whole lot.

Nice! That's way better quality than the official DVD release.

(Shane @ Mar. 02 2012,18:15)QUOTENice! That's way better quality than the official DVD release.It really is. The DVD would've done more justice if they had done more work with the footage. To their credit though; the masters "Star Fleet" existed on in it's English form were off 16mm film evidently and I would assume extremely difficult to remaster - if possible. But the French and Japanese masters clearly lasted on better film reels.I'm pleased with the result on this one; which was a scene that was eliminated alltogether on the French version.http://www.mediafire.com/?555hol24lbxs363
