I don't think streamed 4K uses as many colors as physical media does.

It's always been my understanding that suffixes that explain what kind of company it is are not part of the name. In the case of "Twentieth Century-Fox Film Corporation", Corporation is part of the name. My 2 pennies.

You may have noticed a large number of contributions adding D-Box. I was PMing with the originator of these and he gave me this explanation. I'm presenting it here for discussion as to validity.

As with every feature, you need equipment that supports it.

For D-Box, one needs a D-Box system which consists of one or more motion seats and a controller. The controller is the brain of the system. It listens to the soundtrack and synchronizes the motion to the movie. All the codes, i.e. the motion patterns and the fingerprints of the audio tracks, are ultimately stored on the controller. It uses a Shazam-like algorithm to recognize the movie/audio track.

The codes are downloaded from D-Box's server, so the codes can be released after the release of the physical disk. Last year D-Box released motion codes for James Bond Goldfinger... it works with every disk, broadcast or stream of that movie.

Through the D-Box Motion Controller app on can not only set up the system, but one also has access to the library of motion codes and one can search for a given movie if it is supported.

The films I'm talking about don't have multiple audio tracks.  They have a single audio track in multiple languages.  The Cakemaker, which is the example I'm referencing here, is in 3 - Hebrew, German and English (5.1 DTS-HD MA, if you're curious).  It's not the only one in my collection like this.

So what you are saying is, you don't pick an audio track, it just plays and at various points switches to another language? Does it have subtitles in English when they are speaking Hebrew or German?

Almost every film out there has multiple audio tracks and we list them in the order found on the disc. So what are we talking about here? I seem to be missing something.

As a simple method, I created a tag and a custom media type with an icon.

I have been collecting hi-res trailers since around 2002. At this stage, I have a 4TB external hard drive that holds my 1.6TB of trailers where DVDP goes to play them with VLC.

You could also use "tags". I have a tag for Movie and the only ones that get it are the parents and TV show season profiles. I only give the parent the "count as" number 1 except box sets of more than 1 movie which the parent gets a 0 and each movie gets a 1. Bottom line, my Movie tag and collection count should always be the same.

It works for me.

That's why I keep them local. I want to know what's on each individual disc, not a combination of 3 or 4 discs.

However, if you do try to eliminate information from child profiles in the main 4K, it will get shot down. The only way to do this is to keep it local.

Yeah, I finally got it to work by following these steps:

Convert to base 64; Copy image address from Image; paste in message and include Start and End.

Start
[img src="

End
" /]

I don't know if there is a better way, but this worked.

OK, I tried to reply to this thread just to preview a very small image, 23KB jpg, after conversion. I can copy the other images in this thread and preview them just fine, but not the one I convert. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks, this will be extremely useful. I don't often want to post an image, but when I do, this seems to be it.

Sort Title, Media Type, DVD Title, Edition, Regions, Video Formats, Features, All Crew, Discs, All Cover Scans

I personally use custom roles for most of the crew. When you contribute a role for lets say "Sound Re-Recording Mixer" and you use "Re-Recording Mixer" which is what's listed then contribute a qualified change within the Crew section the contribution only contributes the original "Sound Re-Recording Mixer" which is fine. Then someone else makes an update and you accept this update all the custom role crew members get duplicated along with keeping the custom role entry so you end up with 2 of the same person listed, 1 with "Sound Re-Recording Mixer" and 1 with "Sound Re-Recording Mixer" and a custom role of "Re-Recording Mixer". This happens for all the entries with custom roles. One royal pain the a$$. If I want one of the updates, I have to write it down and enter it after the regular updates. I hope I made this understandable.

One more observation. Why are the screeners approving them if they are not per the rules?


Exactly. I contributed a profile update removing a Digital Supervisor (Ant-Man and the Wasp), but it was approved anyway. I think 6 or 7 people voted to keep the invalid credit. 

To me, I don't see them as invalid per the rules. Sorry.

The rule reads:

Individual Credits:
Visual/Digital/Special/Special Visual Effects, including Designer, Supervisor, and Director,
Special Photographic Effects



While true I think the intent was that the word 'Effects' would be after the words 'Visual, Digital, Special'.

For if we allow a credit such as Digital Supervisor what if there is a credit for 'Digital Designer' or 'Special Supervisor', then we'd have to allow them too.

If one looks at IMDB they lump a whole bunch of people in the Visual Effects section of a film. Sure they may have had a hand in someway in the visual effects of a film, but is that what we're after here?

Thing is, the credit itself is just too vague to determine what this person really did. That's not to say that a Digital Supervisor didn't do work in the Visual Effects of a film, but what exactly did they do. Could be anything to do with a computer or a digital file or whatever.

I always took it that if they are listed as a Digital Supervisor under a Visual Effects company then it was implied. Also, we really need Ken to pipe in, but I guess he's lost to us.
