Another Christmas present from me thanks to Bootluca who asked me to do these videos. He also provided the sources so thanks for that.

 These were very nice videos to work with. Particularly the first night (red jacket) since it had some extreme colour bleeding which was interesting to fix. It involved chroma shift and other tweaks but the result is good, in my opinion. The same applies to the 2nd night (white jacket) but to lesser extent since the bleed wasn't as extreme.

 Some of you are probably aware of the highest quality source of the white jacket performance, it has a big logo(s) in bottom right corner which says "1984" and "RAIDUE". My plan at first was to use the lower quality source Bootluca gave me and mask it in the corner of the higher quality video to produce the best no logo version. Unfortunately due to some frame mismatch (they were different broadcasts so the editor seemed to have edited the framing in both of videos a bit differently) and sync issues I decided to not bother with it and just process the no logo source which was slightly lower quality.

 Also. for the 2nd night (white jacket) I added a few seconds longer intro from another version so that the video is as complete as possible.

 I also synced a 2nd audio track to both videos - the studio version which I took from C_Matt's "The Works (HD Revision)".

Thank you so much! I think you (with C_Matt) should work at Queen Productions Ltd., along with the current employers. You would do an incredible job.

^ When you're feeling down and your resistence is low.

Read another QueenZone thread and let yourself go.

thanks to you man!
I don't think we can find a better version of this, these videos are taken from the videotapes on which was recorded the transmissions of 1984
The lineage is something like this:

Original 1984 broadcast --> recorded on videotapes --> tranferred on dvd in 2014 --> wonderful restoration by Chief Mouse

It is a shame these two performances were missed out from official Queen release Dvds as bonus tracks.



these performances are owned by the Italian RAI TV, so QP would have to buy the rights from the TV, but you already know the official speeches like "not worth buying things like this because they cost too much" ;)
