Okay nothing really special I gues, just another warm up for the upcomming rainbow release but pay attention : 

So before I shared a DVD file (VOB) of the Rainbow 35 mm cinema film. Now our friend Cheifmouse has got mine original transfers. This is a reworked version of a 6,8 gigb. avi file. I have one more upgrade that is the totall lossless version which will be about 39 gigb. but we couldn;t get those transfered. 

So chiefmouse reworked the raw 6,8 gigb avi file. And as always he did do a great job.

So it is up to you if you want another warm up in truley excellent quality !

A before and after analysis is attached see below.

Here is the MEGA link :

Content : Queen Live at the Rainbow original Cinema 35 mm film transfer total file 1.52 gigb. VLC file. Processed by Chief Mouse.

That really looks amazing and it has to be said that he is good in removing things like tv logo's, spots and more. Amazing job and of course thank you again for sharing this with you. September now can't come fast enough!

Thanks to Ghostwithasmile is BACK! for this share!

On the technical side.

This is a minor enhancement. The grain is partly removed because if I made it even cleaner it would lose way too much detail. I tried to select the optimal amount of grain removal. And also some (or most) film scratches are removed. That's basically it :)

Yes, that's great!
It'll be a priceless material if Rainbow '74 official release will feature different angles/nights for particular song.

Thanks for working on this Chief and Thanks to Sikke for sharing.


So. 39gb (pro res 422?) to 6.8gb to 1.52gb?

Is there a higher quality processed file available? Surely Chiefmouse kept a high quality "master"....

(Sorry for being a quality freak, but we all whinge over mp3 when there's a lossless recording available, and I see video in the same light)

With video it's a bit different than the audio though. I suppose you mean there must be a lossless version that I rendered? Well, there's not, as I encoded this directly to H.264 MKV file with x264. Even if I did encode it in lossless form it would look 99% the same as it does now with 1.52 GB. That's because H.264 has a great compression :) I understand your principle but it's not practical for me. It is the way to go, though, if you make tape/reel transfers. That way you capture 100% what's on the source tape.

I understand where you're coming from Chief.
As one of the guys who got a lot of the early DVDs on the market, most of which have appeared here over the years (can I say decades now as I did the first in 2001?), I'm always mindful of quality loss when re-encoding to a much smaller filesize even with more up to date compression codecs.
I suspect that the original print will have been scanned in at either a DPX file sequence or a 1920x1080 HD transfer which would account for the 30gb file size. compressing to a bitrate of 10mb/s would leave that at the 6.8gb size and personally I never re-encode HD material to less than 10mb/s, hence my concern over quality loss.

To be fair, I've yet to pop it on a drive and view on my 42" HD TV, but old habits die hard and I'm generally fighting for quality these days in a world where even 480p youtube quality is deemed acceptable by most of the world because they only ever view it on a 5" screen!
