Starwars Clones Rip

Post by studiocarter » Mon May 20, 2002 10:59 pm

A friend showed me a download of the new Starwars movie that was had for free. The common explination is that some person sat in the first showing and recorded the movie with a digital camera then posted to the net at home.
How does that work?
The movie is film shown at 24fps and someone with a video camera copies it? Really?
That requires a telecini doesn't it? What about the roll bars?
The only method told is that Oriental in a movie theater stealing a copy and posting it as a DivX or Mpg. I don't think the method told is correct.
So, how IS IT DONE?

I belive it's called Telesync. I'm not very much into this (though some friends of mine are), but I actually do happen to have a telesync rip of the previous Star Wars on 2 CDs.

I did a quick search on the net and found this URL. Seems that you're correct with the shooting of the screen-thing:

Transferrs

That is a complicated thing. I already have some of the programs including the deflicker one, but never used it yet. Played with VirtualDub some, though.
This seems to be a way to capture movies shot at 24 fps into the computer without any telecine? That is what they are saying. If so, this may be the way for me to capture my Auricon optical sound on film movies into digital files.
Cool, thanks for the link.

Free promotion?

Maybee Lucas faked it and distributed to the net to promote his new gig?

Anybody remembers Bill Gates crashing (on purpose?) the new WIN 98 "live" a few years ago and saved a few gigabucks on promotion: It was on the news worldwide the same evening.

leave it up to the pirates to tell us how to transfer our films to video :-) This article actually has some good information, of course you are better of fixing what is causing problems like flicker, but if you cant or dont care about slightly lower quality then some of the methods used in this could be for you.

ps. yes they are pirates, they wear eye patches, have peg legs and a parot on their shoulder, its amazing that they let them into theaters.......
