[Released] Tombstone Director's Cut
#1
[Image: XcAj2VTh.jpg]

This project started off as a simple reworking of the past project done by PDB, only on blu ray with all of the extra features from the DVD. However after speaking to PDB he felt the video could be improved upon using newer tools and techniques.

So the audio is taken directly from the project done by PDB, however the video has been reworked from scratch. The Director’s Cut was released on DVD only and contains four additional scenes.

The DVD suffers from really bad edge enhancement so the extra scenes were first ran through a few different filters in avisynth to lessen it and then ran through Topaz dehalo. The footage was then upscaled to 4K in Topaz and then some instances of dirt and dust were removed.

The Blu Ray also suffered from edge enhancement so that was also dehaloed in avisynth and then deblocked in Topaz.

Then the footage was joined together and frame matched to PDB’s project. The blu ray footage was boosted slightly on the exposure and shadows as it was a little dark. The DVD footage was matched using Dr Dre where possible, a few of the extra scenes had matching shots to the blu ray and for those that didn’t I used a LUT from a scene in a similar setting.

You can still clearly see the difference between the DVD and Blu Ray footage but I don’t think it’s too bad and I’m happy with the results, plus the LD track on this is an absolute beast.

Massive thanks to PDB for the original project.

Thanks for doing this. Practically every official release is unwatchable for some reason. Even the LD is riddled with edge enhancement. The LD audio is unquestionably the best sounding and I've tried them all out. I don't think this had 5.1 theatrically and was only Dolby Stereo SR.

This might be correct. The end credits show only the Dolby SR logo and IMDB also says Dolby Stereo. 1993 was still a year of transition to Dolby 5.1/DTS 5.1.

Poster shows Dolby Stereo logo, too.

No 70mm blow-up either, so it appears this never had an original 5.1 track.

Gave this a watch last night. Looks and sounds great, you were right about that LD track being a beast.

I had the Vista Series DVD many moons ago and own the TC Blu now but don't remember which is better the TC or the DC.

This sounds like an awesome edit. I've got the DVD of the Director's Cut and although it's a better movie, the video leaves something to be desired. I'm sure your reworking of the original source will be far and above in quality as well as satisfaction. Thank you for taking the time and putting in the effort to make this fan edit. I look forward to downloading it and checking it out.
