Q for a favour :)
Hey all...i have a big q for a favour to anyone who owns the old James Bond DVD's....since I have the new Ultimate Editions, and want to write a review of them on my site..and ofcourse compare the new restored transfer to the old on..so here is my question- could anyone who owns the older versions capture some screens for me ???? the specific titles I want are "Diamonds are forever"; "The man with the golden gun" and "The world is not enough". If possible, the screen should be captured using PowerDVD with the video settings set to "theatrical".
As for whichc moments to capture..is up to you..it would be nice to have at least 10 from each title.

Is it possible ?

How does one get them to you? I'd gladly do it for you, but it may take a few days, is that a problem?

Just so we're clear, these are the 2002/2003 "Special 007 Editions" yes? R1, I trust it's not an issue. I have PowerDVD 5, hope that suits your needs.

I'll have them all done within a week. I apologise for the wait, I just have a lot of other stuff to do.

DAF is done, it's the other 2, very little time.

I don't mind doing that one as well. It'll be a bit easier having just rewatched it the other day. Happy

No. Honestly, despite the new picture and audio and slightly new extras (only ones I'm jealous of are the commentaries by "007" ), I don't think it's worth it. I put a lot of energy into getting them all first time around, I'm fine. If they were "Unrated" or "Restored" versions, I'd consider it, but the ones I have are fine for me. It's kinda nice not being able to see EVERY wrinkle on Roger Moore's face in AVTAK Tongue. But yeah, no. No upgrades for me.

Original footage being put in. I've heard that there are scenes (small small ones) cut here and there. Probably not true, but if they came out THEN I'd buy them (maybe).



By Friday for certain. Happy

Right so they're all done, (DAF, TMWTGG, TWINE, TLD and GE). I've tried compressing them but it doesn't seem to work, it won't let me. I'll keep trying but I doubt it'll do it. Sorry, it seems like it's none of the terms you lay down, what with the Player being "outdated" and now this. Tongue Any alternative(s) you'd prefer? Sorry, I hope it'll still work out though. Which e-mail do I send them to?

Yeah that's what I meant unfortunately (packing). It seems I can only send one at a time, I'll do that in a few hours, I'll try to find a way, but if not, it's the only way. Sorry, I didn't forsee this happening. I hope this is still ok. I know the files will be big, but bright side: less to go wrong no? Sorry again.
